“2 Willys Jeeps. One 1966 (Estimate no title) and One 1963 with Title. The red one is in poor condition but runs and drives. No brakes but parking brake does work. Plow does work but it’s manual angle. The front leaf springs are both broken. The white Jeep has an engine but is locked up. It has oil in the engine and I did put ATF in the cylinders but that’s as far as I got. It is also missing the radiator and heater core along with the starter and generator. I guess someone stole them for scrap before I bought it. I bought this one from an auction. I found the last PA registration in the glove box. Body is in great shape compared to the red one. I was going to build one good Jeep from the 2. Will not sell Jeeps separate. The title to the red one has to be changed before it leaves the property. $2500.00
I have had a lot of emails about selling the Jeep separate or selling Parts off of the Jeeps. The Jeeps will not be sold separately. There will be no parts sold off of either Jeep. They either go together or they will stay here and hang out.”

1953 Ramar of the Jungle Program

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

Mike shared this episode one of season one introduction to the Ramar of the Jungle TV program. It opens with an MB overheating. At one point one of the guys removes the radiator cap (I kept wincing, waiting for water to explode out of it). At another point, the same guy starts to “work” on the brakes by banging on something (didn’t sound like the brakes) with a wrench.

This unusual photo (which for the purposes of this ebay sale is a metal sign), take on January 6, 1955, documents the existence of what appears to be a Two-Wheel-Drive Dispatcher model based on the M-38A1, designed for the Air Force. I never knew one (or more?) of these models were created.

I’ve had it at my deer lease and love it. Only selling because I have now have a smaller deer lease and don’t use it. It runs and drives great and I can send a video of me driving up a rocky hill from this week.

The only bad thing is the brakes are giving me trouble right now and don’t always work. Not sure what’s wrong but brakes are very affordable and easy to work on. I just haven’t had time to mess with it. Also it does not have a title because they were military issued. But comes with bill of sale and can get title easily.”

The spare tire is on the drivers side and the top bow holders are on the passenger side. However that is the only difference and this body will fit any year CJ2A. It is in rough shape but a good starting point if you don’t have one or if you are looking to customize one. Pictures reflect condition. Asking $400 obo. Would also consider trading for other early Jeep parts.”

No Updates Tuesday

• CATEGORIES: News

We made it home at 5pm on Monday. There were frequent stops, as Ms. Page came equipped with a ‘starter’ bladder, which is pretty small. However, to her credit, she never peed in the jeep. So, kudos to her.

On our drive through Montana we saw several feral jeeps along the highway in varying conditions. I also ran across a mid 1950s wagon in downtown Bozeman, kitty corner from the https://www.facebook.com/LaPaBozeman/ (which was very good). However, we were in a rush and the weather was snowy and cold through much of Montana, so I did not get any pics of them.

Everything should be back to normal Wednesday morning.

Worlds Largest Bison, Jamestown, ND

• CATEGORIES: Features

Just a few updates today, as I’m wiped.

2020-03-08-jamestown-us-bison

That’s one big bison behind us!

Yesterday morning Ms. Betty Page woke us up at 6am. She slept all night on her own, so we weren’t too unhappy with her morning wake up whines.

We’d spent Saturday night in Jamestown, North Dakota. Since it wasn’t quite light out yet, we piled in the jeep, filled up the tank, and found an open Caribou Coffee as we waited for the sunrise, because we wanted to see a special bison.

One of Jamestown’s claims to fame is its giant bison Sculpture, standing 26′ tall and 46 feet long. We decided that before we left town, we’d drive on over to the bison to get a ‘family’ photo. We figured we’d have the bison to ourselves, as who would be crazy enough to get up at day break on a 30 degree Sunday morning to look at a giant fake bison (besides us)?

It turned out, there was a whole frontier town that lined the street leading up to the bison! The cold, quiet morning and some low lying clouds gave the old, empty frontier town an eerie feeling. It was cool.

Here are a few pics.

Just before the Frontier town gates, there was a two story viewing platform (on the left) and a large Prairie Schooner shaped chuckwagon to its right. Both overlook a herd of bison (we couldn’t tell if the bison were there at this time or not).

2020-03-08-jamestown-chuckwagon

After driving through a set of gates (which we were surprised to see open), we encountered an old train depot, a few other buildings, then this general store and church.

2020-03-08-jamestown-church-general-store

Just beyond the church was a museum, though it was closed (we didn’t have time for it anyway). After the general store and church was a series of buildings that we had to drive through to get to the bison (the bison is behind me in the below pic).

WWII Jeep Gets an Honorable Discharge

• CATEGORIES: Bantam-FordGP-WillysMA-EarlyJPs, Features, videos

UPDATE: Steve spotted a second version of this on Youtube (same video, but different URL address). I first posted the video below in 2015. It’s worth a second look.

This video is called “WWII Jeep Gets an Honorable Discharge” and shows Mayor Fred Heine’s Ford GP. The video shows the jeep working on the farm. Lots of great shots. Wyatt’s father was the first person to work on it when Fred Heine couldn’t get it started. The jeep is now at the U.S.Veterans Memorial Museum in Huntsville Alabama, which was featured last week.

Scheneker Iron Works Snow Plow Brochure on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Maury spotted this one. Listed as a 1943 Ad, this clearly was a post war ad. The first clue is the CJ looking grille. The second clue is the suggestion that folks could find a plow at their “Jeep Dealer”. It’s likely a late 1940s brochure, as it has shown up in late 1940s Willys-Overland Special Equipment booklets.
