1946 CJ-2A w/ Trailer Roberts, IL eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, trailer

Includes a trailer.

“Up for auction, 1946 Willys CJ2A Jeep with a Bantam Trailer BARN FIND.  This little Willys is in good shape with some rust, she does run but a little rich, she will need the carb tuned up.  The battery is no good, she drives, shifts in high low and all of the gears and stops.  She needs a new home, you see I’m in the National Guard and will be attending a lengthy resident course, so she doesn’t need to be sitting in the Barn for another year.  Someone needs to restore her and enjoy taking weekend rides in the summer.  She is civilian, but has some military items that come with her, such as a Jerry can with spout, extra (3) non directional tires, shovel, fuel can mount, spare tire mount, machine gun mount, two military tool boxes and I will even throw in an old army field desk.  I have an old school bus seat that I was going to cut down and use as a back seat that comes with her.  All the tires are holding air and in decent shape.  The Bantam trailer is also a restoration project, does have a new tail light and the tongue stand is with her.  I always wanted to get this project going and put these two items together, I think it would be pretty fun, but out of time and my military career and retirement take priority.”

1952 M-38A1 Dubuque, IA $8000

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Still Available.

(12/28/2014) Looks like a good price.

“I’ve got a mostly original Willys M38a1. Very good condition and always kept in the garage. Great for cruising around town and I always get complimen’s when filling it up. Runs and drives great, but I don’t get the chance to drive it much anymore. It’s got the 4 cylinder engine with the 3 speed manual and twin stick 4×4 transfer case.
Backseat, and all buckles, and about 75% tread on the tires.
12 volt conversion.
It has the blackout light, but is not hooked up.
Missing the emergency brake cable.
Shifts smooth, but you have to double clutch from first to second. It’s done that since I got it, I’ve never fixed it because it doesn’t bother me. Does not grind. Might be a good winter project for somebody with more time, or just do what I did!
Engine rebuilt by a professional shop, I have the receipts. It does drip a little oil though, nothing major.
The odometer reads 1,876.
The pictures should give you a pretty good idea of the condition, if interested in taking a look, please give me a call or text or shoot me an email and I will get back to you ASAP!”

Structo Ride on Fire Jeep **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

UPDATE: Was on eBay. SOLD for $191.50.

” VERY WELL CARED FOR Vintage Structo Toys Fire Dept. No 26 Pumper Ride On Jeep Truck WITH RARE CRANK SIREN INTACT. This truck is about 25 1/2″ long and about 12 1/2″ tall.

There is some wear to the paint from age and some rusty areas on the wheels and body of the truck. The steering wheel turns easily and the wheels turn with it in same direction. Having the siren intact is VERY RARE (See other similar trucks, all sold without the siren!). The siren does crank and rattles, but may need cleaning after 50 years of storage! The truck says Fire Dept. No 26 on the top of the hood of the jeep and on the rear it says PUMPER. On the sides of the truck are painted on pictures of firemen hats; a fire extinguisher; and a shovel and axe.

It has been in our family since purchase in the ertly 1960’s. This truck is in used but very good original condition.”

Wheeling Discs and New Tires

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features, stainless/jewels • TAGS: .

Paul continues to make progress on his jeep. He received his tires and has made some custom stainless rim discs.

tires

Paul’s new tires

TIRES:

He writes, “The New Tire Fairy arrived at the house today with eight brand new STA Super Traxion 6.50-16 tires along with eight new inner tubes for the little Willys. I’d been searching the internet for a vintage looking narrow tire with an aggressive tread design that would look good on the Willys so shortly after I discovered these tires I put my credit card to work and placed my order.

I wanted to replace the brand new but 30 year old tires on the Willys so that accounted for 5 tires and I needed 3 more tires for the military trailer (I want the trailer to have it’s own spare tire) so that’s why I bought eight. Shipping wasn’t too expensive since I wasn’t in a hurry and compared to Coker tire who wanted to ship their tires 2nd day air ($1,100 for the tires and an additional $900 for shipping) it was down right reasonable by Alaska standards.”

WHEEL DISCS:

wheel-discs-test

In this photo he’s testing out the disc concept with poster board.

He writes, “I bought some poster board that was large enough to make full size mock ups of the stainless steel wheel covers I’m thinking of making to cover the plain steel wheels I’ll be using on the Willys. The six larger holes are 1 & 1/2 “ diameter and the smaller holes are 1 “ in diameter. I’ve made other discs, some with more holes and some with less holes on each disc in various patterns but I keep coming back to this design. It’s simple, the spacing of the holes is easy on my eyes and the wheel covers make the tires appear larger and more heavy duty.

Each hole will have a reinforcing ring fastened to the back side of the disc either by 1/8th inch diameter monel raised head style rivets or 3/16” dimeter stainless steel machine screws (the size of the machine screws used on the door just below the window). These doublers and rivets are for style only and not necessary for strength. Each disc will be attached to a wheel by six stainless machine screws and these screws will thread into steel mounts welded to the wheels.”

wheel-disc1

A completed disc.

“Above is the first wheel disc with the holes drilled and the rivets installed. I gave the plain disc a brushed finish to see what it would look like … I think it’s about as close as I can come to matching the body finish. These wheel discs need to be easy to clean and easy to touch up the finish so a mirror polished disc would require lots of maintenance to keep the metal shiny. I don’t have enough energy to keep up with the mirror finish. 

I finished riveting the last two wheel discs today then I cut a hole thru the center of the front wheel disc slightly larger than the Warn hub so these discs could be test fitted to the wheels on the Willys. The tires on the Willys are still the old new ones and not the new, new ones I recently received since the steel wheels currently on the Willys have the wrong offset and will be replaced with the correct wheels in the near future. Anyway, I think these discs match the Willys much better than the aluminum wheels I was originally planning on using.”

wheel-disc2

The wheel discs attached. The discs came out a little darker, but that’s probably because of the angle. The discs are made of the same stainless as the rest of the jeep. These are the old tires, not the new ones.

I’ve seen plenty of Marx Jeeps, but finding one with an original box is rare.

“Vintage MARX WILLYS JEEP Pressed Steel Toy Car + Box *EX* (USA) Neat and hard to find 11″ pressed steel Willys Jeep in original box. This toy would rate as the cleanest one I have ever seen except for the front grill area where I’m guessing the paint reacted and flaked off. Other than the grill issue this toy is bright and shiny as day one with a crisp and clean box to match. Good luck. NO RESERVE!”
