1944 MB? Idaho Falls, ID $10,000

UPDATE: Still Available.

(10/16/2020) What a crazy contraption. “El Burrito”‘s got style. It even has a mural on the back. I’m not quite sure how the rear extends, but it looks like someone would be safe from bugs.

“A Prospector’s Dream or a mini RV!
A unique vehicle for the right individual. A fold out six foot bed behind the seats, and a “kitchen” underneath. Email me for videos showing the set ups. A 1944 WWII surplus jeep purchased in 1954. It is a Willy’s 4 cylinder. I think it might be a CJ 6.
Needs new gas tank (has 2 tanks, if you want to replace both) Seals and belts are dry, but should absorb fluids back when added. It was started, but turned off to avoid running bad gas through the carburetor. All the mini-van modifications can be removed to restore to original jeep without too much conversion.
If interested E-mail phone number to pungoriver@live.com and I will call you for further information. If you like make a bid.
It has been garaged.”

Year? CJ-3A Victoria, TX $800

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

UPDATE: Price dropped to $800.

(10/19/2020) A couple things with the seller’s notes. I agree this appears to be a CJ-3A, but the Dana 44 was introduced in late 1950 to the CJ-3A (not 1952).

https://victoriatx.craigslist.org/pts/d/victoria-willys-jeep/7220220622.html

year-cj3a-victoria-tx2 year-cj3a-victoria-tx3 year-cj3a-victoria-tx4

“Was converted to chevy V8 and front saginaw manual steering (excellent upgrade if you’ve ever driven a stock one). Has 16” wheels and one of them appears to be original (date stamped 1953 military) it will need a replacement engine as the v8 block in it is apart and no good any longer. Jeep is rusty, modified, old and in need of extensive repair and restoration but is mostly all there. I do have the front fenders, they were only taken off to pull the engine out but I have lost interest and have too many other projects to finish first.

The firewall was butchered when the engine conversion was made but wouldn’t be too difficult to patch and repair with sheet metal and a little effort. Asking $1200, it has no title and I am not sure what year or model it is, my best guess 1953. It has the dana44 rear axle (means it is at least a 1952 and they quit building the low hood in 1953 and the gear ratio is 5.38:1 like most of them were throughout the years. It rolls easy but should be trailered because of age.”

1941 Photo of Patricia Morrison in a Ford GP

• CATEGORIES: Features, Library Collections, Old Images

This photo dated July 11, 1941, shows actress Patricia Morrison sitting in a Ford GP, presumably for a photo shoot. In 1942, she joined the USO tour, entertaining troops in Great Britain. I suspect the men around her are fellow actors, but I can’t say for sure.

1948 CJ-2A-Truck Priest River, ID $4000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

This may be one of the custom CJ-2A trucks sold out of Spokane (or it is a truck chassis with modified 2A body). This might differ from the “CJ-2Ls”, which had extended bodies to match the longer frames. It would be interesting to compare this frame with the CJ-2L frame. The half-top could be a remodeled Worman full-top.
