Jeep Station Sedan Model

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models

This rare Jeep Station Sedan model came from eBay. This seems to be a pretty rare item (I’ve never seen another one). Given the Station Sedan was produced in 1948, I imagine the model is from that year as well.

1946 CJ-2A Trencher Minden, NV $5500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: price dropped to $3500.

(05/23/2022) It hasn’t been started for over a decade. It’s unclear why the rear axle looks like it has been pushed backwards.

https://reno.craigslist.org/hvo/d/genoa-1946-willys-jeep-trencher/7534663935.html

“We bought a ranch a couple years ago that had a variety of farm/construction equipment and junk on the property. We’ve gradually sold off or disposed of most of it. We’ve been on the fence however about what to do with this bizarre little rig; a WWII-era jeep that has a trencher built onto it. Part of me wants to hold on to it and take it back to a stock jeep. On the other hand, how many projects can a body accomplish in a limited number of years? Thus, if the right person were to offer, say, $6,500. in cash, I would part with it.
I have not tried to start it, though everything else on the property that was parked 15 years ago when the ranch was abandoned, has been made to run..
We are well off the grid, east of Minden, NV. Phone reception is poor. If you have an interest, please text me and we can arrange a visit.
There is no title or documentation that we are aware of.”

“1959 Willys Pickup (NOT WAGON) that runs and drives. It was originally a farm truck in Colorado but has been in Utah as a project truck for the last few years. It has been garaged for the last few years.
It has the original 226 cu in 6-cylinder “Super Hurricane” engine. The odometer shows 14,333 but we’re not certain if it has rolled over 100k miles. Original 3 speed manual transmission, 2 and 4WD (hi and lo) and rare manual front lockers in working condition. New tires all around with the spare in the bed.
The body needs some work. There is rust (mostly on the truck bed) but for it’s age it’s in incredible condition. It’s not a show truck in its current condition but it turns heads every time we drive it. We’ve had a lot of people express interest in using it for weddings and photoshoots.
We purchased it with the intent to restore it but never found the time and want to help it find a new home with someone that can restore it to it’s original beauty.”

No Updates This Weekend

• CATEGORIES: Features

Ann’s family will be here this weekend, so the next updates will likely be Monday. So, we’ve been busily tidying up the property, inside and out. However, we did sneak away on Thursday to pickup some items Ann won at a local auction.

The principal purpose was to buy some corral panels (we couldn’t justify buying new ones at $200+ per panel), scoring about 200 feet of 12′ long panels at a great price. But, she also spotted a meat slicer for sale at the auction.

Ever since working at restaurants, I’ve always wanted a quality slicer, but it’s hard to justify the purchase. So, Ann surprised me by winning an auction for a Bizerba GSP HD 13″ slicer! Plus, it came with a stainless steel cart. Priced new (to my surprise) without the cart at between $4k-$7k. Meanwhile, a stainless cart goes for a minimum of $1500 all by itself. So, I was pretty shocked that she snagged the slicer plus a cart for less than $600.  I’d say she scored!
