Builds — Jim’s Modified 1946 CJ-2A

• CATEGORIES: Builds, CJ-2A

Just in case you think Jim paints everything green, he does know how to use a few other colors, too :-).  Here’s his modified CJ-2A.  In the post below is his white M-38.

Jim writes, “GM V6 with stock running gear, was very well built, went like stick in the snow, not a drop of rust which always makes me happy”

1952 CJ-3A Decatur, GA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $10,000

I don’t think the pictures quite do this justice.  Newer tires would help and finishing the restoration (parking lights for example) would help this CJ-3A.

“Massive restoration. This is the original body which has been removed from the frame, restored with zinc alloy body fill then zinc coated to prevent future rusting. Newly painted a vibrant pearl orange. The interior is done in rugged black bedliner. All seats reupholstered in a nice black vinyl. Includes the rare back seat. Black Besttop Soft Top included. New wiring harness. Warn Winch included. Two sets of wheels. One set of matching orange wheels with radials and one set of black wheels with NDT non-directional tires (old style military). Well documented restoration.  See my ad on autotrader for larger pictures”

1953 CJ-3A West Hills, Ca eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

1953_cj3a_westhillsThis is a nice looking CJ-3A.

“Willys is in good shape with great running motor. Motor has Willys stamp on head, however I’m not sure if it is the original.  Has an aftermarket carb, I do have original for new owner to install. Drives great and idles fine. Shifts smooth through all gears. Good power for a small flat four. Electrical has been converted to 12 volt by a past owner. Everything seems original except for the hood. I think that is an aftermarket steel hood with the Willys logo painted on. Small leak coming from  front seal on the diff. Nothing major. No other leaks or issues…..”

1944_mb_tyngsboroIt’s a nice looking MB, but I think the claim that this is a better investment than your 401k is a bit over the top.  If you think it is, then you better put your 401k into a better investement portfolio.

Builds — Oklahoma Green and One Bad Apple

• CATEGORIES: Builds, CJ-3A, Features • TAGS: .

I was searching for an image of original CJ-3A gauges when i stumbled upon this article.  Both of these are well modified, good looking road and trail jeeps.  One of the more interesting features of the ‘Oklahoma Green’ Jeep is the number of gauges that are installed.  One Bad Apple certainly has an usual paint job.

Here’s 2 excerpts from an Off Road Adventures Article; each one discuss a little bit about each jeep:

oklahoma_greenOklahoma Green: “… Below the CJ3A Willys’ windshield is a dashboard that would be more than adequate in a J3 Super Cub airplane of the same vintage. The aircraft-like dash sports a full compliment of gauges: fuel, fuel pressure, oil pressure, oil temp, water temp, vacuum, and air pressure gauges along with a voltmeter, hourmeter, and altimeter by Hobbs. A Lev-O-Gauge rounds out the impressive array. Lights and buzzers backup the critical gages. From the dash, Ken can switch on the fuel pump, fast idle solenoid, headlights, heater, and winch. Indicator lights report the status of 4WD, seat belts, ARB, emergency brake, and air compressor…. ”

one_bad_appleOne Bad Apple: “… The frame was lengthened 6-inches to incorporate a GM 4.3 V6 CMFI 195 hp at 4500 rpm engine with K&N Air Cleaner and Painless Wiring, a GM 700R4 with a manual shift kit, and a Dana 300 transfer case with CV driveshaft. With 4.88 gears, the final crawl ratio is 80:1. The front axle is a Dana 30 with an ARB Air Locker and disk brakes. The rear axle is a Dana 44 with a Detroit Locker. Four-inch lift springs, an off-road track bar, and Rancho 5000 Shocks control 33×12.50 BFG Mud Terrain T/As …..”
