A “Decent” Parts Wagon?

• CATEGORIES: Last Ride, Willys Wagons

We’ve all run across these examples (and the reason for the Last Ride category, which I’d forgotten about), but Mr. Binks shared this parts wagon priced at $2000! I guess if a fella finds a fool willing to fali for it ….

“PARTS TRUCK ! Still descent parts motor trans axles seats there , currently located in yorkville , Ill with be bringing to poplar grove I’ll by Rockford soon – text for prices or hole ?”

Wagon @ Magnolia Silos in Waco, TX

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos, Willys Wagons

Mike shared this photo with me a few weeks ago during this trip through Texas. The wagon looked familiar, but I couldn’t place it, so I’d planned to circle back when I had some time for research.

I finally discovered why I recognized it. Tim Evans and his wife had their photos taken in front of it during their visit in 2017, which I posted at that time. Tim noted in his email to me that Magnolia Silos had been featured on HGTV, and those folks who know of the Silos are also familiar with ChIp and Jo Gaines (my mother was a big fan). The wagon is a popular photo op and you can see some of those photos here. Given we were in Waco in 2017, I’m not sure how we missed doing our own photo op there.


I also found a video online:

Year? FC-170 Skowhegan, ME $2000 (Or $2500)

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: .

Andy shared this FC with a hydraulic dump bed. The top price is listed at $2500, but the text price is $2000.

“This listing is for an early 1960’s Jeep FC-170 with factory hydraulic dump body. This Jeep has its original 6 cylinder flathead super hurricane engine. The engine still runs, but the carburetor needs to be rebuilt. The frame is sound, engine is in good shape, the body needs to be restored. It also requires all new brakes. The only thing missing are the seats. The hydraulics haven’t been used in many years and will also need restoration. Mileage may be inaccurate at 30,000+. Plow has been removed, but front bumper has not been reattached. 2,000 or best offer”

Body Progress

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

With the roof repaired, I was able to return to the body on Wednesday. From sanding the body, I can see this isn’t the first time it’s been repaired (fiberglass patches and some bondo). Below are pics after applying the fiberglass filler and applying some sandable primer, but before any bondo. I’ve since applied some bondo to fill in some holes, nicks, and cracks.

1947 CJ-2L Kamloops, BC, Canada, $9000


This is one of the nicest looking 2L’s that I’ve seen. Given it’s proximity to Spokane, it’s highly likely it’s a 2L out of that area.

“1947 Willys Jeep converted to pick-up. Archive photos. Original engine swapped out for older Ford Ranger engine, charging system converted from 6 volt to 12 volt. Starts, runs, needs some brake work. Original engine included in price. Barn stored in winter. Looking for younger, more mechanically inclined owner!”

If Not For The Mosquitos …

• CATEGORIES: Features

After several days of near 100 temps, on Monday morning we had a storm blow through that brought a refreshing rain storm, during which I opened the sliding glass door in our bedroom, but neglected to close the screen door …

On Monday night we went to bed. Before falling asleep, I read some news on my phone. Strangely, a mosquito began buzzing me. I swiped at it and it went away, but soon followed by another mosquito.

Ann was still awake and as annoyed at the buzzing as I was. So, I turned on the lights. Looking up to our sloped, vaulted white ceiling, it was clear that there were more than two mosquitos, more like 20+. Thus began 20 minutes of me hopping on the bed and furniture attempting to kill as many mosquitos as I could.

During the process, I spotted a mosquito against the outside wall above the door. That’s when I saw it. Not the mosquito, but a bulge in the paint near the ceiling, like an upside down hotdog half. I gently pressed on the bulge and it felt like bulging paint, but not drywall. Ugh … given no rain was expected and many mosquitos were dispensed, I went to sleep knowing what the morning project would be … find the leak!

I was on the roof by 6:30am, but the source of the leak wasn’t readily visible. I started at roof peak, then worked my way down the roof. It wasn’t until I was right over it that I saw a broken branch barely protruding from the roof. In fact, it was almost even with roof, which is why I hadn’t ‘t seen it. I reached down to pull it out and the piece as about 3″ in diameter, but only 4″ long. My guess is that the branch got blown off our back trees, impaled the roof, then broke off, leaving the embedded piece. The fix isn’t difficult, but it’s still time consuming.

Next, I was about to go inside to investigate the wall damage when Ann called me over to examine our Polaris Ranger’s spray motor. It had stopped working. One multi-meter later, I tracked the problem down to a blown fuse.

As Ann went to go spray, I went inside to make some Dutch Babies, prep some lamb for the Trager. I was just finished with all that when Ann called me on the phone. “Quick,” she said, “get out to the pasture, two calves have caught them selves up in the hotwire!” .


By the time I made it to the pasture, the calves were freed. So, we removed the wire (and will upgrade to larger wire).

Some mornings just aren’t easy! The good news is that I tore out some of the dry wall and it appears there wasn’t too much damage. The pierced-roof must have happened recently, I saw no indications of long-term moisture damage nor any mold. We’ll let it dry/air out for a few days before I patch it up.


Funny thing is, if not for the annoying mosquitos, we might not have spotted the damage!

Odd Jeep Printers Block on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features

This block depicts an oddly shaped jeep (?). It almost looks like a jeepney.

View all the information on eBay

“Vintage Printing Letterpress Block
The block of wood is approximately 4 inches by 1.6 inches. 0.9 inch thick wood.
If you need exact measurements, please let me know.
Subject matter is:
Jeep or similar vehicle with things on the roof.
There is a sign also that shows which way Canada is.
I haven’t tried to polish this up or anything but it probably could become shinier if somebody decided to do that.
Some of the pictures where it’s clearer or shinier is because of how I positioned the lighting in the room.”
