1953 M-38A1 Londonderry, NH $5200

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: .

It’s not running at the moment, but looks in good shape.

“’53 Korean War vintage M38A1 Willy’s Jeep. Overall in good shape but presently not running. Was running great when I purchased it two years ago for a restoration project, but it has been sitting in the garage since then. I’m sure batteries will need replacing, oil pan gaskets leaks and carb will need cleaning. Everything else looked solid when I bought it. Tires are like new. Canvas top & seats are awesome. Body is solid. Even have side doors and flaps. Hurricane engine only has 22,700 miles. Also has a heater (not installed). Great start for project military Jeep. Selling for $5,200 while it’s not running. Once I take to my mechanic and get it running price will go up to $6,200. ”

Zamboni® Ice Resurfacers & the Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Museums • TAGS: .

UPDATE: We had a busy, long weekend, Normal updates resume on Tuesday morning. In the meantime, here’s a rerun from 2010.

Eureka, Utah is a very small town.  I imagine it was even smaller when Frank Zamboni was born in 1901.  From those humble beginnings, Frank grew up to create one of the most iconic service vehicles ever:  The Zamboni® Ice Resurfacer.  I’m not sure why they have entered the public’s imagination in the way they have, but if you say Zamboni®, people know what the vehicle does.

In fact, the Frank J. Zamboni company is legitimately concerned about the name Zamboni® passing from being a description of an Ice Surfacer into a noun, which can spell death for a Trademark.  You’ll note on the website that Zamboni® is quickly followed by Ice Surfacer for that specific reason.  In addition, there’s an extensive discussion of the Zamboni® trademark here.

By now, you are probably asking yourself what all this has to do with jeeps? For about 7 years, from 1942 through 1949, Frank Zamboni attempted a variety of experiments to create a good ice resurfacer, mostly using different Jeep models. Below is a summary of the Zamboni® history from the company’s website coupled with pics I’ve found all over the web.  The CJ-3B Page also has some information.

  1. Model A was Frank’s prototype ice re-surfacer.  In 1949, he built the model below (which has been restored and still exists at Paramount Iceland in California):

2. Model B introduced the jeep to ice surfacing.  In 1950, apparently Frank decided he needed something more portable, so he came up with Model B, which used a War Surplus Jeep (I’m assuming MB?).  If you look closely below, you can see Frank connected a U joint to the steering column and then added another steering rod so that you could steer from behind the jeep.  According to the Frank J. Zamboni Corp:

In 1950, Olympic skating star Sonja Henie’s traveling ice show was practicing at Paramount Iceland, and she saw the Model A in action. She had to have one and asked Frank if he could build one in time for an upcoming Chicago performance. The deadline was tough, but Frank worked day and night, then loaded all of the resurfacer parts into a U-Haul® trailer. He towed the trailer to Chicago behind the Jeep he would install the parts on and assembled the Model B there.

1962 CJ-6 Clifton, CO $4000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6 • TAGS: .

Could be a good price.

“This is a 1962 Jeep CJ6. It comes with the soft bikini top as well as the wooden top. The doors are wooden with sliding plexiglass windows. Yes the top is homemade. But it works really well. I have parked the Jeep at several fast food places when the wife and I stopped for lunch. People always walk over and check it out. They have even taken pictures. It still needs some work. But it is drivable the way it is. I sometimes take it to work just for fun. I have had it for four years. I just kind of lost interest in the project. I am asking for $4,000. I do not need to sell it. So don’t make any stupid offers. I will consider reasonable offers. I would also consider a trade for a 3/4 ton Chevy pickup. Something from the 70s. The tires are really nice. I put them on new 3 years ago. ”

1962 Wagon Sheridan, WY $7000

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $7000.

(02/09/2017)  “1962 Kaiser Willys Wagon for sale. This a very nice, well kept original vehicle. It runs and drives as well as it looks.

This vehicle was purchased by a local ranch and it stayed there until a close friend of mine purchased it in 2014. We replaced all 4 springs, installed new wheels and tires, and replaced the water pump. It has had less than 50 miles put on it since this work was completed.

The original straight 6 was replaced with a 283 small block chevy. The original 3 speed Borg Warner T-90 trans was retained, and it shifts very smooth. The transfer case is a Dana 18 twin stick (Hi/Low & 2wd/4wd). Front axle is a Dana 27, rear is a Dana 44. I believe the gear ratio is 4.10.

The original paint shows very well. Two tone Fountain Green Poly over Plantation White. There are some faded spots on the hood, but I’m certain it could be buffed and made to shine nicely. The interior is in very good condition. The drivers side front and rear seats appear to have been re-covered, but still look good. The headliner has been removed. No rust to speak of as this rig spent the majority of it’s life in a barn shielded from the elements.

This would make an excellent restoration candidate as very little needs to be done to the body and the running gear is all functional. Or drive it as is, and enjoy it for many years.”

I have a lot more info on the various parts that make up this vehicle and will provide via email if interested. I’ve owned this Jeep since 1986 but just don’t use it anymore. It needs to go to the right person that wants to give it a new paint job, and drop the transmission and transfer case to replace a leaky gasket – and get it back into the dunes or other trails. This Jeep has a lot of power and needs to be driven by someone with plenty of off-road experience. It’s not insured, so I’ll test drive it.
