1944 MB Waterbury, CT $800

John spotted this MB with unusual ‘skins’ across the grille and fenders. Given it has been parked since the 1980s, unclear what value is here. I believe it needs floor pans (my interpretation of “4 pains”). Only one pic provided.

1963 Vol. 9 No. 6 Jeep News

This eight-page issue of Jeep News, volume 9 number 6, begins on page one with a few plugs for The Greatest Show on Earth.

Page two plugs a completed Jeep race out of Michigan, hosted by the Michigan Four Wheelers Club of Dearborn. Page three highlights, once again, The Greatest Show on Earth.

Pages four and five share images of jeeps from around the world. It also includes a short note about the annual ‘Jeep’ Caravan to the Gila Cliff Dwellings. Page six includes a nod to the Sussex County Jeepster Club out of New Jersey, along with a story about the development of a mobile camera tied to a CJ-3B. The Jeeporama out of Boulder, Colorado, fills the entirety of page seven. The issue ends on page eight with two stories of jeeps in the Peace Corps.

May 1960 Jeep Service and Parts News

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

The more I read these Jeep Service and Parts News issues, the less they look like news and the more they look like reminders to Sell, Sell, Sell! (See “The Parts Department Manager” on page four). It’s not that there isn’t a place for encouraging selling for this department, but whether it belongs in a news bulletin is less clear to me.

In the “not all air bath cleaners are made the same department”, the note on the lower right portion of page four highlights a new air bath cleaner for the FC-150 that includes “a water deflector to eliminate the possibility of water entering the air cleaner from the back of the fire wall”.

For Sale: 1946 Jeep – A Vintage Gem for Restoration Enthusiasts!

Are you passionate about classic cars and eager to restore a piece of history to its former glory? Look no further! We are thrilled to offer our 1946 Jeep for sale – a true automotive treasure in remarkable condition, with unique features that set it apart.

Key Highlights:

(VEC) Rare Original Matching Plates: This 1946 Jeep comes with an extraordinary set of original matching plates 28210 – the Dash Plate, Body Plate, and
Frame Plate are all intact. These plates are not just a testament to its authenticity but also a collector’s dream.

Excellent Condition: Considering its age, this Jeep is in exceptional shape. It exhibits minimal rust and provides the perfect foundation for a restoration project that will turn heads and preserve a piece of automotive history.

Engine Anomaly: The engine in this Jeep has a +798 difference between the engine number and other plates, fear not! Willys utilized these engines for various purposes, pulling them from the assembly line for gas engine
generators during that era. This is why Willys engine numbers will not match.

“1946 Willys CJ2A Jeep for sale! restored to WWII military livery. Post-WWII, the simple yet iconic all-wheel drive GP, or General Purpose Vehicle, remained in production by Willys with the model designation CJ2A. This Willys has it all. Roll cage, electric wipers, new top, great tires/rims and more custom items. Very clean for a post war vehicle. This is a surviver to the fullest ready for the next adventure. There are some engine issues which are stated below. Hate to sell it but have many vehicles in my collection and this one is going to a new home. The Willys is located in Valley Center at my other mechanics house and he will be fielding all the inquiries and has all the knowledge to show it. He’s a great friend and master mechanic. Here are the details:
Body and undercarriage restoration, very clean. Replacement early 50’s willy’s engine. Lifted and new tires. Three speed. New interior and top, with optional bikini top and car cover. Seat belts and parking brake added.
Clean california registration.
Vintage 1946 plates, approved through CA DMV with 2024 tags. Odometer says 54,000 but there is many more miles on this 50’s motor. Has only 500 after it was all restored.

Here are the issues: The engine threw a rod and my mechanic James from James Automotive down in Barrio Logan inspected and here is his diagnosis.
It’s a F Head jeep engine from the early/mid ‘50’s.
Combines a flat head with an overhead valve.
The piston in the front cylinder basically disintegrated for some reason. Connecting rod as well. And badly damaged that cylinder.
To fix you need to take engine out. Disassemble it. Rebore the cylinder. Put a new sleeve in that cylinder. Replace the oil pump, which could have caused all of this. New gaskets and seals.
Then put it all back together and back into the Willys.”

Blaine shared this J-24 that’s being auctioned on Bring a Trailer. It appears solid, but has enough dings to make it a practical little work vehicle. Current high bid is $5750. This ends early Friday morning. The vehicle is untitled.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1977-mitsubishi-jeep-3/

“Various Jeep models based on the CJ-3B body style were produced and built by Mitsubishi in Japan under license from Willys between 1973 and 1997. Rust repairs were reportedly carried out before the exterior of this example was covered in a black spray-on bedliner material, and the pickup conversion included the addition of wood side stakes as well as planks along the B-pillars. Inward-facing bench seats are also present in the bed, and additional exterior details include a Mitsubishi logo above the seven-slot grille, a pintle hitch, and a tan soft top in addition to fender-mounted side mirrors and indicators. Corrosion is visible near the right side step and tailgate hinge.”

M-18 Warn Hub Dash Sticker

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Josh is looking for a reproduction of the rare orange Warn dash sticker below, though his original one (damaged in a fire) was blue

Does anyone know of any reproductions or even a quality image that he could get reproduced? Josh explains things below ….

warn-dash-sitcker-m16-hubs

The blue one below is apparently similar, but, like the one above, his did not include a reference to “Warn MFG CO” at the bottom).

These are examples of M16 hubs (he has M18 hubs).

warn-dash-sitcker

Josh wrote: “I’m hoping you might have run across a locking hub dash sticker like the one attached at some point. My 1956 GMC NAPCO 4×4 had WARN model WL-15828 hubs, which are more commonly referred to as M18’s. My truck had a dash sticker ( actually it was inside the glovebox door ) that was identical to the orange image I attached [ed note … the image at top], except that it was printed in a medium blue color. I believe this type of sticker to be the predecessor to the more commonly seen type with the illustration of the WARN style locking dial. This particular sticker that I’ve attached a picture of was in an NOS set of hubs for a heavy duty IHC that was dated from 1956 or 57, as I recall.

Anyway, I’m hoping someone has this sticker and I can get it reproduced. I believe it to be the correct sticker for any WARN model hubs that predate the addition of the raised stamped area where the “M” series model number is typically stamped. That was added some time around 1965 or 1966 as best I can tell. As an example, I’ve attached a picture of  what are typically referred to as M16 hubs, also a late 50’s NAPCO 1/2 ton application, but the one without the raised stamp area would have been stocked under the part number WL-54-21 originally.

My truck was severely damaged in a forest fire. Otherwise I’d go scan my own sticker and get it reproduced. Eventally I’d like to resurrect my truck, and this is a detail I want to be faithful to.”
