Sportif-looking JeepRod Sand Canyon, TX $2500

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $2500.

(11/29/2018) This oddity reminded me of the Willys Sportif prototype (seen at bottom).

odd-ratrod

“This is a Rat Rod, bucket, vintage, or What every you want to call it, this is what it is.
This is a one of a kind never will you see this again.
It was built in 86 so I am to believe but I think it was built earlier as it appears to have pre- mig welder welds that look cool.
This was a full custom job when it was done and someone left it for dead.
This is a 41 Willy’s chassis.

NO, I WILL NOT PART IT OUT, ITS BEING SOLD AS A HOLE VEHICLE.
NO, I AM NOT ACCEPTING TRADES, I HAVE ENOUGH PROJECTS. BUT THANKS

I am selling a 1954 Jeep Willys, M-170 front line ambulance. Originated out of Arizona, so this is a 95% rust free vehicle. There is no rust through anywhere on this Jeep. NONE. The only 5% of rust is strictly surface rust . Frame is also rust free. Frame has all its military parts and pieces, torsion bars front and rear, leaf springs and all suspension as is military. Has three of the four lifting rings, bumperets, etc.

Front bumper is mint, as is tailgate and all compartment doors and glove box. Hood is original with shovel brackets and straps. Air cleaner is original. There is sand built up along with some type of oil added to the under side of this M170. All hat channels are 100 percent rust free as are the floor pans and cross members. This Jeep is almost 100 % sound as far as frame and sheet metal goes. Ran great with carb leaking. Found the bowl was leaking and tried to rebuild carb, now it runs rough, but I have another carb to try.

https://hudsonvalley.craigslist.org/cto/d/chappaqua-world-war-ii-jeep-gpw-willys/6842787923.html

“This is a 1943 (based on VIN) GPW Military Jeep. Needs some work on the drivers and passenger floors, the axe and shovel panel and the rear panel. The rear floor and panels are solid with just surface rust. It has a CJ grill. But I have a WW2 grill which I will include. The left and right fenders need some welding. The gas tank sump needs to be replaced and it needs a gas tank. It has an L134 4 cyl Go Devil Engine, which turns easily and it has a 6 volt alternator. It should be easy to get running. Also, I believe the transmission is the T-90. Based on the color, I would say this was used by the Air Force after the war.”

Zamechatelno! & Meeting Russians’ Ads

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings

UPDATE: Mario shared this article on Facebook. The fact it mentions the term “Zamechatelno” and it’s translation (“swell”) made us both wonder if the article was the root of the subsequent WWII ad by Willys of the same name (shown below). 

The Zamechatelno ad was published three months later in the October 10, 1942, issue of Collier’s Magazine (and subsequently in the November 14, 1942, issue of the Saturday Evening Post).   Given Willys-Overland had to commission the work, ready the ad, then submit it for publishing, this timeline certainly suggests the new article could have been the reason for the ad’s creation.

1942-07-14-sanbernardino-sun-russia-story-zamechatelno-lores

Original Post July 11, 2010: A couple ads from Willy’s-Overland’s WWII ad campaign related to Russians. (You can see a list of all the Willys-Overland WWII ads published, with dates, in the Saturday Evening Post and Colliers).

Here’s another Ad with a Russian theme. This one was published in the August 18, 1942, issue of the Saturday Evening Post. I did not find a similar ad in Collier’s Magazine.
