• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

UPDATE: This is confusing. eBay indicates that this jeep sold on August 20th. Yet, it has been relisted for auction as of this morning. It is also for sale on Craigslist at a lower price.


New eBay Ad: See all the information on eBay

Old eBay Ad where it is marked sold: Perhaps a buyer didn’t come through?

“Take a look at this 1967 Jeepster Convertible! It comes with a reserved parking spot in the no sulk zone. It’s hard not to smile at the thought of jumping into this classic SUV for a Sunday cruise, to the Saturday tailgate or for a Tuesday grocery run. In fact this four seat convertible with a smooth running V6 motor and automatic transmission is a family favorite everyday of the week.

Just a few updates today


(This was supposed to appear Thursday morning, but I messed up!)

Just a few updates today.  We will be gypsying in the motorhome for the next week or so. We’ll be in Roy, WA, for a couple days at my sister’s place, then down to Ethyl for the weekend for some jeep races, then most likely back to my sister’s place (redoing her roof and fixing stuff).

Bruce Troxell just published his take on the conclusion of the Alaska Or Rust adventure:

1951 CJ-3A Encinitas, CA $25,000


Lots of mods to this 3A.

” cannot tell you how much it pains me to sell our beloved Willys!! This Jeep is an absolute blast to drive and gets a ton of attention every where that it goes. It took best in show when I didn’t know it was even entered, I was just stopping for coffee!

It has a complete frame off restoration with just over 3,500 miles on it. Receipts for more than $40k in parts are provided as well. It is a 3 speed with high and low gears (to make it a 6 speed). It has 4 wheel drive with front and rear lockers.

– frame and body has been lengthened.
– roll cage very nicely integrated to the body. Front windshield still folds down.
– Chevy 350 crate motor
– blue tooth audio with water proof speakers
– corbeau seats
– transmission cooler
– less than 200 miles on the tires and wheels (from ORW if you want the spare to match)
– winch with controller
– flow master exhaust with cherry bombs
– power steering, power brakes

Etc etc etc etc. way to much to list. Selling only because of changing life circumstances, would keep it if I could. Literally everything has been gone over on this vehicle. Every nut and bolt is brand new. All gauges work and are accurate. Clean title in hand, all registration is up to date. No emissions required (it’s a 1951).”×4/6272785160.html

1952 M-38A1 Air Force Jeep Austin, TX $15,500

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: , , .

This is cool!

“This is an original Air Force Jeep used to shuttle crew to and from flight lines. Also used for taxi-ing incoming and outgoing planes.
This vehicle still has the original 24 volt system, black out lights all work, Original canvas seats. Original engine, transmission and transfer case work just fine. New brakes all around, new tires, rebuilt carburetor. This is not a restored vehicle, this is “as found”. The side windows are roll up crank and work fine. The numbers painted on the door match the numbers on the dash data plate which also match the number on the chassis data plate. Only issue still remaining is it needs a good alignment. Have clean title but is not yet licensed.”
