1955 CJ-5 Seattle $14,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ5

Are you kidding me?  $14,000 for a cj5 that needs suspension work?  Add to that it's a pink jeep with "Angel's Toy" on the back and you're looking at a jeep that has a pretty small buyer demographic.  

"1955 Willys CJ5 Jeep. It has a 327 corvette motor, 4 speed tranny twin stick transfer case, has tilt wheel, spring over sitting on 42in super swampers. It was painted aproximately 10 years ago,but has been garaged until two months ago, it's never seen mud, but would be a fun toy to have. It has a stainless steel custom dash."

1963 DJ-3A Surrey — Saint Petersburg, Florida eBay

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

On first glance this looks almost brand new.  But, on a closer look I realized someone couldn’t resist modifying it by changing the windshield.  At first, I thought the windshield was raised and attached to an added bracket; however, after looking at more pictures,  I’d say someone tried to make a CJ-3B windshield fit on it. On such a rare and good looking jeep, I can only wonder why??

“This ultra rare 5000-mile documented original 1963 Willys spent the majority of it`s life on a golf course in Florida. It is believed to be one of the few Surrey Gala models. At some point in it’s life it has had a color change and top upgrade. For the last 15 years it has been part of a private collection. It has never been offered for sale before. It is in excellent mechanical condition and presents beautifully.”

Happy Father’s Day

• CATEGORIES: News

I hope all the fathers enjoyed a happy father's day!  

I took the day off yesterday from ewillys, enjoying an 8 hour drive with my children from Seattle back to Boise.  My own father was in the hospital for a couple days after what appeared to be small stroke, though the doctors could not find anything.  By yesterday he was back to his normal self and back home from the hospital.  I teased him that if he thought we were to noisy, he could have asked us to quiet down rather than checking himself into the hospital.

On Saturday I took my kids to the museum of flight in downtown Seattle.  I wanted to use the experience as a springboard for determining an approach for a jeep museum.  While the museum of flight is ostensibly about planes, it is really about people's stories (in the beginning, in war, in space, etc) and our experience as a people and the impact of planes in that experience. Their approach to planes mirrors my desire for a similar approach to telling the stories of the people who owned, used, and named their jeeps. 

The museum of flight also offers bi-plane flights and other 'old time' experiences, which is similar to what I wanted to capture as well with people being able to drive an early jeep (such as an early bantam built to spec).  A number of people have said I couldn't get the insurance I would need to offer these types of rides, but if their's insurance for giving bi-plane rides than their must be insurance for a jeep ride.

1945 MB Palermo, Ca $18000

• CATEGORIES: MB

The seller of this jeep wants $18000, though the jeep is not completed yet.  Whether you agree with the price, you'll probably enjoy looking through the 40+pics of the jeep and its various parts.

"This is a 1945 MB, WWII military jeep, that has been meticulously restored over the last 15 years. It is 85-90% finished, with boxes and boxes of parts, and everything needed to complete it. The parts used have been predominately NOS (New-Old-Stock: vintage parts still in the boxes), as when the project was begun there was still a supply of original vintage parts, and if a person was patient and willing to pay – could seek them out. This jeep is solid, and great care was even used to preserve all of the original spot welds, which as this is a military vehicle built for combat – it has plenty, and wears them proudly!"

1946 CJ-2A Bountiful, Ut $3200 obo

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

This looks to be a nice baby blue CJ-2A.  Oddly, the lower part of the top slopes downward as it runs from the driver's door to the back of the jeep.  Maybe the top connectors slope down on the body, but that would be odd I would think.

"1946 Willys Jeep, CJ2A, with a 1969 V6. HEI ignition and oversized Commando brakes. New battery and extra axles included. Spare engine also included, disassembled but all machine work done. Jeep in great condition and in the same family for more than 35 years. Moving. Can’t take it with us. $3,200 OBO. Call 801-295-9464 or 801-520-8083 to come see it."

1952 M-38 San Diego, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

This seller has plenty to say about this jeep.  The seller states “Value with basic OD paint and canvas for the top and seats and some basic parts ($2000 invested). —$6000 – $8000 on ebay.”  This may be true, but it underestimates the amount of work necessary.  That said, it sounds like there is a good deal of original m38 here.

“Here it is: 1952 Willys M38 (not M38A1) All original data plates intact – The Good: Original Motor 4cyl, flathead Go Devil, No modifications to the frame – body – running gear or anything, Had 95% of the stock trinkets – ie: blackout lights etc., Still set up as a 24V system, Never painted other than the yellow over OD green, Body is 95% sound ( I removed most of the paint to verify this)…”

“You are bidding on a 1958 Willys Jeep Forward Control FC-150 with low miles. This Jeep comes with a fully functional snow blade. The Jeep has sat for a number of years without running. We decided not to try to start it in fear that we may damage the engine without doing some prep-work. The engine and transmission are all original. We had one of the fender fixed after being damaged and never got around to putting it back on the truck. The truck does not have a lot of visible rust and seems very solid. It is the short wheel base has had the seats reupholstered at some point with a center kids seat.”

Fiberglass Flatfender taken apart, Chicago eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  The seller has reposted this on eBay with more pics.

This looks to be the same fiberglass body as my first jeep.  The seller is correct; this body is light — I used to move the body myself by crouching underneath it and picking it up on my back (my current body is somewhat heavier).  However, I disagree with the seller; this body makes a fine jeeping body.  But, if used for jeeping, tie a cage to the frame and use the cage to help support the body.

“1949 Willys CJ 2 A/B, I have one title with no vin plate, Two Straight solid frames, Light weight single wall fiberglass body tub (not my recommendation for serious off road use, good for a sand buggy), Overhead valve inline 4 cylinder engine (from a 3B or early CJ-5), 2 T 90 transmissions with transfer cases, 2 sets of stock willys axles, one of which has new brake shoes and hardware”

Tom, from Forks, Washington, has a new CJ-5 project he's purchased.  He had a question about the location of the vin plate on the body.  He thought it should be on the passenger side firewall, but that's where the battery holder is located.  Anyone know where the vin plate is on a 50s CJ-5?

Tom also has his two flatties for sale.  You can learn more about then here.

The add says '45 Willys, but the body looks to be 46 or greater, so I'm calling it a 1946 CJ-2A.  It appears driver's side step isn't there, so likely some rust underneath.  Also, the ad says roll bar, but it looks to be a full cage.  Woodland is north of Portland.

This is a nicely modified CJ-2A called “Quick Change”.  The builder built a similar drive train to what I’m doing, except for using a 289 where I’m using a buick 3.8.  We even have the same rims.

Specs are:  1947CJ2a, Chevy 283 V8 (I was told this was a stroker…no way to prove it without dissasembly), Torker intake, Tall chevy aluminum valve covers, Edelbrock carb with the offroad needles and seats (works awesome off road)…..”

Builds — Craig Ellis’ M-38

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features, M-38

I don’t know whether Craig is finished with his jeep or not, but he certainly had some terrible rot to deal with.  I’ve linked to the ‘Golden Triangle Jeep Club’s’ bulletin board for this Build story.  Below is the pic of Craig’s M-38 body:

you could draw a line down the middle of the body and replace all of the driver’s side floor to be safe. i’m gonna avoid catalog bought floor panels and construct my own from 16 gauge sheetmetal along with new crossmembers. i got a pair of Wagoneer Dana 44s last weekend and am working on the suspension, which will be stock waggy leafs in the front and YJ leaves out back. I picked up a Chevy 4.3 V6 to use and can’t decide on which tranny to go with, but i’m thinking SM465 b/c Novak offers a really short adapter to the Dana 18 case….”
