1966 CJ-6 Saratoga Springs, UT $8900


This may need a little work, but could be a good project. It includes the Meyer hardtop and a trailer.

“Grandma bought this Jeep brand new in 1966. Always has run great. Has not been started in several years. Been garaged for the last year. Comes with USMC trailer and couple sets of wheels and tires. Plan was to restore to original, but just never seem to get a good start, so time to turn over to someone else.”

“Hi there, for sale is my 1947 Willy’s Overland CJ2A. This little jeep has been an awesome vehicle, and doesn’t need much. It has the F-Head Hurricane Willy’s engine that was torn apart and completely gone through, along with the transmission and transfer case. Gaskets and seals were replaced and fresh oil throughout the drive train.

This will start on the first crank even after sitting for a couple weeks. The differentials have fresh fluid and the manual hubs have been gone through.

The transfer case has a high and low range Newer drum brakes and it stops reasonably well.

I drive it all over town and have had it on the freeway for short periods. It will go 35 great, but should probably get some new tires if you plan on long freeway trips.

The Jeep is coated in a Linex type coating that is extremely tough. No rust on the Jeep, any old spots were cut out and repaired by the previous owner. Asking $8,500 open to trade offers.”

1952 M-38A1 North Stonington, CT Auction


UPDATE: David spotted some 2A tags on this rig, suggesting the title may be problematic.

Bill shared this Hemmings auction. It will be interesting to see what this fetches on Hemmings.

“This 1952 Willys Jeep M38A1 represents a military-spec example in highly presentable condition, with what the seller describes as a new canvas top and the Jeep’s original engine, which was reportedly built 275 miles ago. The Jeep is said to retain its correct 24-volt electrical system, with auxiliary batteries. Described as having been under current ownership for 15 years, the Jeep is reported to be “free of rust.””

1974 M-151A2 Mutt Seattle, WA Auction


Here’s another Bill pointed our direction. Again, it should be interesting to see how high this goes.

“This M151 is powered by the Hercules-sourced OHV inline-four. With a compression ratio of 7.5:1, the engine received its fuel mixture via a single carburetor and was rated by the manufacturer at 60 horsepower when new, with 119 lb-ft of torque. The engine in this M151 is reported to be original, with no stated rebuild history. The seller says the manual choke does not need to be used for starting if the engine is warm. An electric fuel pump was reportedly installed in 2018, the M151 reportedly having 24-volt electricals. The manual transmission reportedly “works great,” and the seller states “All-Wheel Drive works great, engaged with a lever switching from 2 to 4 wheel -drive.” The engine bay presents as stock and very clean.”

1953 Ad Willys-Overland Motors “That’s the Story” on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I can’t remember running across the ad. It’s an unusual one. The title is “That’s the Story from Willys-Overland Motors”, but really that is pretty much the end of the story of Willys-Overland Motors, as the company assets were shortly wound into Henry Kaiser’s company. This must have been produced shortly after the introduction of the CJ-3B. The cartoonish M-38A1 is pretty unusual, too.

1951 Station Wagon Brochures

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE: I discovered going through my files that there were at least two version of the Jamaica brochure. The top brochure has Form number 5CM-SWC2-451-GG, suggesting this was produced in April, while the bottom one is Form number 2CM-SWC2-2-551-GG, which suggests the second one was produced in May.

The interior pageThe back page seems to be the only difference.


The interior seems the same:1951-04-j05-jamaica-brochure-foldout-comparison2


Original posted June 20, 2023: This Willys Wagon brochure highlights Willys Overland station wagon’s Jamaica color-choice styling. The brochure includes a cutout of the wagon that swings to the left. That got me thinking … did Willys-Overland ever produce a similar cutout brochure for the Grand Canyon and Caribbean models?

This is the front of the brochure:


The wagon image is actually a cutout that folds left to reveal the interior of the wagon:

This is the back of the brochure:


This information is consistent with a post I published late last year which showed brochures highlighting the color choices for the Jeepster and Wagon. Below is the wagon brochure:

This 1951 brochure gives a branding name to each color choice: Jamaica, Grand Canyon, and Caribbean. Note that this four-page brochure includes the Willys Makes Sense slogan from the Willys Makes Sense campaign the company implemented across it’s adverting in 1951:

Patterson Runs Again .. $8000

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos • TAGS: .


I spent Saturday and part of Sunday working through some fuel system issues. What I thought was a bad fuel pump (I spent a short time on it this spring) seems to have been some kind of blockage in the line. So, I drained the tank (the updated stainless rear tank has a drain at the bottom), blew the line, then refilled with new gas and, viola, it ran. I think it just sat too long at mom and dad’s. I also replaced the old generator (which didn’t work) with one given to me by Joe-in-Mesa during our Feb visit. So far, it seems to be working.

Below is a short video clip. So, that makes 2 of 4 jeeps running! That’s progress!

The downside for me with this jeep is that I don’t fit in it well (too long of legs). it could also use an alignment. Finally, I wish the brakes stopped a little better, but that’s not a priority at the moment.

The body is rust free. You can drive it as is or repaint and restore it. The jeep includes a very rare Allstate window wash spray system and an equally rare Vacuum tank that adds power for operating the windshield wipers (one is missing a blade .. I haven’t needed to use them).

Being a convertible model, it has the original windshield with twist knobs across the top. I have nearly all the convertible top parts that attached to the body. The convertible loop only has the main bar, not the secondary bar that leaned off the back of the main bar. There is not soft top either.

The tow setup includes a towbar (not shown) that connects to a bracket mounted on the front bumper that uses stock holes, so the bumper remains unmolested.

So, if someone wants to buy this from me for $8000, contact me at d @

I’ll throw in this three axle trailer for another $8000. I bought it along with the FC Tour jeep, but I think this trailer with just be sitting around and not used much. Since we already have a tilt trailer that can handle the FC, I don’t really need this one. I can take more pics or supply more info if anyone is interested. We towed it from Arizona and, once we got the wiring sorted out, it worked great for us.
