1948? Flattie Ava, MO $6500

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

UPDATE: Still Available

(07/28/2014) This is back up for ‘possible’ sale. It’s an unusual build. It’s listed as a ‘1948 willys jeep m38′.

I was posting some other items and thought I would post this vehicle and test the waters. I’m not really wanting to sell this just got it up and running. It is tagged road legal (barely) It always draws attention and looks. It is a reproduction m38 willys flat fender tub. sitting on a 1978 ford bronco frame that has been bobbed. There is a 6 inch rancho lift with 35″ tires. The engine is a 1976 ford 400 big block! the motor weighs almost as much as the tub! It is a beast sounds good and runs great. It has a hydro boost brake booster. The hood was raised two inches and the nose was stretched about 8 inches to accommodate the motor, nice 4 core radiator, doesn’t get hot. Full roll cage attached to the frame. 5 point harnesses. It does have a heater and a manual wiper on driver side. New windshield that can tilt out. Painless wiring box. All new wiring. lights work. There is a locker in the rear, not sure on the gear ratio. the 4×4 works. It has a c6 transmission with b&m shifter. I believe I know what this is worth and I know what I have put into it. I’m very curious what someone else would be willing to offer for it. Please no low ballers I know it is worth more than a “plane jane” wrangler so don’t make offers less than that! If you are looking for a one of kind rock crawler that is street legal this is it! It is not a show vehicle it has just enough patina & roughness that makes it look good and you don’t mind taking it off road. Yet, it still looks good at the local drive in too!”

1947 CJ-2A Omaha, NE $3500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: Still Available

(09/23/2014) Not quite the jeep that “rode to the front line”, but still worth a look.

The same jeep style that rode to the front line during World War 2, this 1947 Willy Jeep is an American Classic. As rugged as it is blue-blooded American, this Jeep is in great shape, with hardly any rust in its solid steel construction. It has an original Flathead 4 cylinder, a 4 spd tranny and both high & low gears. It’s of course 4wd, and was also overhauled two years ago, with new springs, exhaust system and new tires! Willy Jeeps are classic Americana and symbols of patriotism that will always hold their value.”

1953-cj3b-dunn-nc1 1953-cj3b-dunn-nc2

1953 Willys CJ3B for sale. It is a project very near completion. I was going to build this into a crawler and beach vehicle.

The Good-
The body and frame have some surface rust but are solid. The F134 4 cylinder engine is original and has 130K miles on it. It ran 2 weeks ago when I finished wiring the ignition. The Carter carburetor was rebuilt a few months ago. The 12V alternator is brand new. The transmission is a NP435 6.68:1 first gear from Novak Adapters(http://www.novak-adapt.com/knowledge/np435.htm) this with the adapters was around $2500 the transmission is rebuilt but if you looked at it its brand new. Novak did a leak down test before shipping. The transfer case is a Dana 18 2.46:1 low range. It was rebuilt before bolting it up to the transmission. The axles are Dana 25 and Dana 44 the gearing is 5.38. The final drive in low range in this is 88.4:1 plenty to crawl. The wiring harness is about 2 weeks old also.

More Progress From Paul

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

Paul’s added more panels to his M-38. The gray panels look real nice inside. Somehow, he managed to arrange an earthquake in Alaska just to test the design!

paul-upholstery-m38-6

I purchased more shower curtain rods so I could speed up my progress on installing the Willys interior panels. I’m excited seeing the improvement the fabric panels make over the bare stainless and it seems Mother Nature is excited also. Yesterday (Sept. 25th) we had a 6.2 earthquake rumble thru town and this evening we had another smaller earthquake measuring only 5.0. The 6.2 quake managed to knock some stuff off the shelves in the garage and some items stored in the crawlspace were broken but we had no damage to the house or the Willys so I’m a happy guy. Here’s a picture of two more interior panels being held in place by 10 curtain rods (upholstery tensioning devices) and you can see the gray fabric panel slightly above the center of this photo. Tomorrow I’ll install two more overhead panels and prep the two vertical corner pieces if the earth quits moving long enough for me to reposition the tension rods.

paul-upholstery-m38-5

As you might have noticed, I clamped the rear window upholstery panel into position this morning. The interior panel is protected by a 2 inch thick white foam overlay and cardboard taped to the stainless protects the surface from scratches from the vise grip clamps. paul-upholstery-m38-4

Two inch thick foam overlay protects the upholstery panel and spreads the clamping force. Two smaller finished pieces are installed and clamped by the famous adjustable tension rods. I’ve used 34 tubes (12.9 ounces each) of black silicone to attach 15 interior panels and I still have 18 panels left to install.

paul-upholstery-m38-2

I never expected shower curtain rods and foam insulation were necessary tools for installing upholstery in the Willys. As you can see on the right Vise Grips, thin plywood and pink foam are also needed. Yes, we embrace diversity here in the northland. paul-upholstery-m38-1

1948 CJ-2A Cherry Hill, NJ eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

Unusual color scheme. I keep thinking smurf-mobile.

“This Jeep was restored in the late 70’s early 80’s. The owner spared no expense as he intended to use it in local parades. He had the entire Jeep stripped and repainted with the Blue and White scheme shown. The engine and transmission were rebuilt at the time and everything was replaced to new condition.

After using it briefly in several parades the Jeep was tucked away in 1984 and has not been seen since until now! The Jeep is running and driving but as you can see there are some areas that will need to be addressed.

The paint is in fair shape and there is some rust starting to show with some separation on the hood and fenders. This is a running and driving Jeep powered by the 2.2 litre 134 engine with a three speed manual transmission and 4 wheel drive.

This is a fun Jeep that is ready for a new home and with a little TLC can be ready for the next parade!”

1967 Police Ford Bronco Glen Alpine, NC GovDeals.com

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Buz spotted this unusual Ford Bronco that was used by the Glen Alpine police department.

Vehicle Starts/Runs/Drives, Inline 6 Cylinder Engine, 3 Speed Column Shift, Four Wheel Drive (4×4), All Original, Doors and Top are not original to this vehicle but are period correct. The vehicle originally was used as a parade vehicle, then was converted to be used for the Dare Program. Quarter Panels are clean, seats are original with no tears, floor panels look great. Vehicle is currently sitting outside and is not driven much…very little would need to be done to make this a show vehicle or daily driver.”
