Paul spotted this photo of a CJ-5 used to navigate the length of the 85-mile Delaware Aqueduct in 1957, still the longest tunnel in the world (construction photos). This was the last time the tunnel was navigate in its entirety. Because of the knowledge gained during their survey, the last living member of this party, Victor Feigelman, was consulted on the state of the tunnel up until his death in 2016.
If you zoom into the area just above gas inlet you’ll note the warning: USE WHITE GAS –ONLY–. The need to limit effluents inside the tunnel also explains the odd exhaust setup.
From Wikipedia, the Delaware Aqueduct … takes water from the Rondout Reservoir through the Chelsea Pump Station, the West Branch Reservoir, and the Kensico Reservoir, ending at the Hillview Reservoir in Yonkers, New York. The aqueduct was constructed between 1939 and 1945, and carries approximately half of the New York City water supply of 1.3 billion US gallons (4,900,000 m3) per day. At 85 miles (137 km) long and 13.5 feet (4.1 m) wide, the Delaware Aqueduct is the world’s longest tunnel.

There’s some value, but hard to tell how much.
“I have 3 CJ2A Willys jeeps for sale. They are in varying states of condition. None run, all have engines and trannys. 2 have original engines and 1 has a ford engine. I have many parts for these even some steel patch panels for the floors. Projects that never finished and cant now. They all roll although there are a few flat tires. If I parted these out I could get more than what I am asking for them.
They are located on my ranch west of Trinidad Colo.
I do not have titles for any of these.
Asking $2200 for all three and would like to not separate.”

Craig shared this find. I wonder why type of axles or chassis is underneath the body. It doesn’t look like jeep hubs.

This early Gledhill brochure was on eBay and came from Canada. I’d never heard of Glehill snowplows, but the company still manufactures snow plows and moldboards.
This is an unusual build.

“Usually when we tell you about a mean Jeep it’s because someone has transformed it into the ultimate off-roader, but this complete custom built 1969 Jeep CJ5 is about teaching others a lesson on the streets. Beneath the wild green paint and lowered suspension lies some of the best Ford performance components you know. And once you look at the price, it’s not just a great Jeep or a great Cobra; it’s one amazing overall deal.
There is no pretending this is an off-road Jeep. The metallic green paint is out to intimidate the streets, not the trail. At has the kind of luster from the modern clearcoat that will act like a beacon attracting people from across the show field during the day, and at night, it catches the light and almost glows better than a neon sign. That’s why it has been applied over every inch of the exterior, including the bumpers, grille, and hood pins. The only thing to grab more attention than the green are those custom applies sliver ghost flames. But more than just paint, this one has some great custom street rod details, like the chopped windshield, lowered suspension, crystal clear headlights, and the Weld-style 15-inch alloys.
