Early Allstate Winch San Diego, CA $645

• CATEGORIES: Parts

This jeep served two different jeeps. What I found interesting is that the tag is still on it, identifying it as a Sears and Roebuck winch. It would be interesting to see if the original ad for the winch indicated it’s use was for a jeep.

https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/pts/d/chula-vista-vintage-1940s-cj2a-jeep/7041406651.html

“This is a very nice classic vintage (1940s) fully working allstate winch sold by Sears, it was originally installed in a 1947 CJ2A but later transferred to a 1956 DJ3A, the long metal base is 33″ long, the metal plate where the mechanism sits is 15″ long, the mechanism alone is 13″ long, the cable is 3/8 in diameter”

“This is one of the last 2 of 9 military vehicles sold from my collection. In addition to this jeep I’m also selling 1953 m38a1. I bought this Jeep from an individual who did a partial restoration with the most important restoration being the rebuilding of the engine. I would describe its current condition as being Fair to Good. It starts right up and drives well. I replaced the original hood with a reproduction hood but kept the original hood should a buyer want it. It came painted as an Army Jeep but since I served in the Marines I put Marine paint and markings on it. The photos fairly well show the condition of the jeep. It also comes with a tow frame to be attached on the front and some odds and ends. The tires and tubes are relatively new. The Jeep has a MS title with 1945 MS Historical legal license plate. It has been stored in a closed garage and seldom left outside. It does have a tendency to slip out of 2nd gear, which I am told is coming for this model. Interested parties are encouraged to personally inspect and drive the vehicle. Located in Diamondhead, MS.”

“This is one of last 2 of 9 military vehicles sold from my collection, It is is a M38A1 and is in fair to good condition. I describe this jeep as being partially restored. While it does have some minor rust, it would not take much effort to restore it. The body is complete and seems to be in decent shape. Add a new paint job and you will have a nice looking jeep. The jeep runs and drives very well. It starts right up and the brakes seem to also work well. The tires are dry rot and need to be replaced. It comes with a nicely done Plastic Replica 30 caliber machine gun with 4+ ‘ stand and 30 caliber cartridge box (needs to be installed on Jeep) plus what appears to be a Vietnam era flak jacket. Interested parties are encouraged to personally inspect and drive the vehicle. It does not have a title and I doubt it has ever been titled.”
