“My father moved and I was left with some vehicles including this really fun jeepster, my grandfather was the 2nd owner in 1969 and it’s been in the family ever since, sad to see it go but I just don’t have the passion/ time and need to find its next owner on its journey! It starts and runs, the brakes and clutch need some work (mechanic friend took a quick peek at it) it’s cover has some wear and would probably need to be replaced , there is one missing panel I have been trying to locate through the move but without luck . One of the windows has trouble going up and down. Just an old but loved car and no one in my family has the time/experience to work on it!

No seatbelts , I see it being a great vehicle for a cabin, small town, ice cream run vehicle. I’d love to find someone that knows these hard to find vehicles and give it the love it deserves !”

“I have a 1944 Willys MB, World War 2 military Jeep for sale, with a clean Oregon title. It’s definitely a project, but it rolls and steers nicely. I was told it has a Dana 30 open-knuckle front axle and a centered rear diff, instead of the closed knuckle front and offset rear diff. Original engine is long gone, but I have an original T90 transmission and Dana 18 transfer case, that also has a vintage aftermarket overdrive unit on it. That all seems to shift well, but it’s not in the Jeep currently. I have an extra cowl/dash to patch in the holes someone cut in the dash. I’ve always wanted one of these specific Jeeps, but thanks to Biden’s economy, I’m gonna need to let a couple projects go. I’m asking $4,500. Cash only. No shipping, Local pick up only.”

FC Update

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Progress continues on the FC, though if feels at a snails pace at times. I was near done running wires, but then decided to wire the main electric fan the correct way by installing a relay setup. I also decided to install the somewhat vintage Sun tachometer onto the left corner of the dash (in an existing hole), as it would be good to see the RPMs for when the transmission shifts. The brake lines, the speedometer cable, and all the wires from underneath the cab come up through two holes, so that should help clean up the look of the driver’s side.

I looked into solid state blinker setups, but haven’t found one that fits my needs. I may just go with the old school round flashers.

Here’s a pic of the dash. The spaghetti is laid in place to be cleaned up once all the wires are in their respective locations.
2024-07-06-dash-wiring

Below is the e-stopp parking brake installed, with the redone gas line just above it. I will be dropping that one high spot in the gas line, but, over all, I think this setup will work just fine. I’ve tried to leave space for the forthcoming mounting bracket for the rear cage & platform.

2024-07-06-e-brake

This phot shows the installed rear light switch, with the initiating bracket bolted to the shifter bracket. The wiring to/from the brake light still needs to be secured and won’t be laying on the front drive line as pictured! Everything fits well in there.

Finally, just for kicks, we finally mounted Ann’s sign. It looks great, though I think the “bunkhouse” should probably be renamed the “paint studio”, as Ann mostly uses it to work on her canvas paintings.

1957? Willys Export Family Model Line

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, International This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

I snagged this rare 40+ page  brochure off of eBay. I am guessing that this was printed before the FC-170 was introduced in the summer of 1957, because the FC-170 page was a drop in page without a page number.

One aspect of this I found interesting was that the brochure leads off with the CJ-3B, which wasn’t something happening in the US domestic brochures, where the CJ-5 was more likely to be published first. Also, the last page shows an “Authorized Service & Genuine Parks logo I can’t remember seeing on brochures or signs.

Finally, these scans aren’t quite as nice as others I have done. The scanning app I was using was forcing me to begin paying a monthly fee of $10/mo and I wasn’t interested in doing that, so I’ve been experimenting with other scanning apps, but having found anything that thrills me yet.
