1946? CJ-2A? Bringhurst, IN $4500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, DJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Still Available.

(03/12/2020) This shows that the DJ-3A windshield for the Koenig hardtop also will fit the Meyer CJ-5 hardtop (in this case it’s a CJ-5 half-top). To me this adds weight to my theory that the Koenig hardtop used on DJ-3As should fit CJ-5s. This jeep also has a DJ-3A body (cut side type) and grille, at the very least.

1951 Tool Bar Implements Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Marked form FS-F514105, this brochure highlights some of the tool bar implements available for jeeps, including the Rotary Lister Planter, the Conventional Moldboard Middle Buster, The Roatry Bottom Middle Buster, the Field Cultivator and the Row Fertilizer Attachment.

Barry Thomas suggests that some or all of these may be ex-newgren items that, following Newgren’s struggles, Willys-Overland began to market and sell under ‘Jeep’. I’m not as versed as some folks on the individual implements, so maybe someone can confirm this?

One thing is clear to me; Willys-Overland did not devote much marketing resources to this sales effort. These brochures are pretty simplistic compared to many other marketing documents of the time. Maybe there was a small team with a tight budget assigned to try to make something happen with this niche of farming and implements?

Warn Winch Houston, TX $500

• CATEGORIES: Parts

UPDATE: Oops … I mis-listed this at $5000!

Seems a fine price.

https://houston.craigslist.org/pts/d/spring-warn-belleview-winch/7120243850.html

Warn-Belleview-Winch-m8274-houston-tx

“The original model of Warn’s iconic electric winches, the Bellview Winch is 8,000 lb rated and was produced by Warn industries until 1974, when it was replaced by the Warn Model M8274, which is still in production today. These winches were popular ad-ons to old Willys Jeeps, International Scouts, Early Broncos, and 4×4 pickups.

The winch works with manually actuated cables that fix to the dash-mounted control panel, and run through the engine bay to the winch and the knife-switch. The cables control the power-in function, the clutch, and a manual drum brake. It is VERY uncommon to find one of these winches with the original under-dash controls (complete with factory WARN blue cables) as well as the control switch.

This winch was a factory option on a barn-find 1974 Bronco, and its serial number shows that it was one of the last Belleview winches to be made at the end of 1974. It would make a great piece to add to a vintage restoration, or use as is on any vehicle, as a similar new M8274 costs around $2500.”

“Pulled this out of a Quonset a couple months ago, it’s a cool little Willys Jeep but I already have a CJ2A and this is one project too many.

Hasn’t run for about 4 years, I asked the guy how long he’d had it he said, “I put those 1973 plates on it. ”

We have not tried to start it, the oil looks good and it has antifreeze in it, the gas line is disconnected at the fuel pump, they had a little can on it last time it ran. The engine has pretty good looking red paint so I asked him about that. He said they had it rebuild a “Long time ago.”
