Photo of Pat Etherton Driving a CJ-2A on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

Clewiston is in Clewiston, Florida. I could not figure out who Pat Etherton is.

View all the information on eBay

“1952 Press Photo Pat Etherton drives a jeep in a Clewiston field. This is an original press photo. Hand Winch on front of jeep is a handy gadget for the driver who overestimates the capabilities of his “mount.” The cable is hooked around a nearby tree (if there is one) and elbow grease does the test. That’s Pat Etherton of Clewiston at the wheel. Photo measures 8.5 x 6.75 inches. Photo is dated 01-27-1952.”

“Mechanically sound 1948 Jeep Willy’s.
I’ve done quit a bit of work on this Jeep. It does smoke and will need an engine rebuild. I changed the head gasket a while back and it was .030 over. It does have another rebuild in it. I did add an independent brake boost so this Jeep actually stops.

This Jeep has a title and has good tags thru 2020. This is rare. Liability insurance is $13 a month. Very cheap to own and work on.

Serious inquires only. If you don’t know how to work on vehicles this is not for you. This is a fun second vehicle to run around the neighborhood in. This is a standard and top speed is around 50mph. Not a freeway vehicle.”

1945 MB Wichita, KS $3500


Seller needs this gone soon. It’s a mash of parts.

1945-mb-wichita-kans1 1945-mb-wichita-kans2 1945-mb-wichita-kans3

“1945 WWII acm type II tub with a 1946/7 CJ motor and T-90 transmission, original MB tag still present on frame. Machine gun pedestal mount present, definitely a WWII frame/tub.

Original data plates are missing. Previous owner added a tailgate, roll bar and a CJ-5 hard top. Used a winch in the front to haul deer through the back without busting a sweat.

Tool boxes flat and nice, not rusted out. Original floors present but have a sheet nicely laid over. It was done so well you can’t tell.

Original air cleaner, I believe carburetor and other parts.

If you’re looking for a gauranteed runner for a start to a project or a reenactor grade Jeep this won’t take much. Has Bondo on left side, some on hood and also on the back. For most it’s clean metal underneath. Tool channel patched with riveted stainless steel, that and tailgate are the worst spots.

Runs and drives great! Starts with the turn of a key. Open to offers. I can also deliver to surrounding states or cities within Kansas at cost.

Has missouri title but does not match, sold on Kansas bill of sale, will include title.

Will upload video to YouTube of it running and a walk around soon. Also available on ebay, need it gone soon.”

Tractors & Spam

• CATEGORIES: Features

2019-07-16-austinToday we drove from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to Fergus Falls, Minnesota. Along the way, there were several cool stopping places, so we took advantage of them.

The first, the John Deere Tractor & Engine Museum, was in Waterloo, Iowa, (and yes, ABBA’s Waterloo song hits me every time I read a Waterloo sign). We arrived just after the museum opened, so we had the place pretty much to ourselves. The museum is free and is full of restored tractors, interactive displays, history, and nicely arranged exhibits. It’s worth a stop if you are in the area.


2019-07-16-john-deere-4 2019-07-16-john-deere-3 2019-07-16-john-deere-2

John Deere also offers free tours of the nearby Engine Works and Drive Train Operations (see the bottom of this page for more info). Unfortunately, we didn’t have time for that.

Two Jeep Toys from Frank

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

Frank shared these pics of toys his neighbor gave him. Anyone familiar with either?

The first toy is an odd one. The rabbit in the bubble spins as the jeep moves.

toy-bunny-frank1 toy-bunny-frank2 toy-bunny-frank3

The second toy is a puzzle, as it’s in a CJ-2A box, so he’s not sure if this toy had it’s own box and the neighbor got confused or if it came in the 2A box. With all the nice details, one would expect the base would be correct, too.
