1951 CJ-3A Kingwood, WV $7295

“1951 Willys CJ-3A. M38 windshield and body. Starts right up, runs good, no mechanical issues. L134 flathead engine. Carb just rebuilt, brakes were rebuilt last year, new battery, electrical system converted to 12 volt, fluids changed regularly. Has some rust underneath but overall a solid old Jeep that just needs someone that has the time to spend taking care of a 70 year old machine. Title in hand”

“Rare and hard to find Jeep FC-150. This jeep is a great candidate to be restored. It is mostly complete with the exception of a passenger seat. The windshield has no cracks and is in great condition. The body has rust in the typical areas in the rear cab corners. Roof gutter rust pictured is minimal concern as it is all surface rust and roof is solid. Vin # comes back as a cab and chassis series and the wood floor flatbed is from the original owner and the jeep has been parked indoors for the last 20 years. The engine has been swapped and it now has a gm283 which was done by the previous owner. I bought this to restore but have not done any work on other than collecting a few parts which include: extra dash, fuel tank and leaf springs.”

Ranger & Remodeling

• CATEGORIES: Features

We’ve had some family visiting this weekend, which is why updates have been thin the last few days. More updates Monday.

First, earlier this week some nearby folks who were moving to the west-side of the state posted their 2015 Full-size Polaris Ranger with Turf mode and low miles (1800mi) plus spray equipment for sale for $7000. The price was too good for us to pass up, so we brought this rig home.

2022-03-12-polaris-ranger

One big reason we got this was that Ann’s knees preclude her from using a stiff clutch (like that of a jeep), so this is a much more practical vehicle for her to enter/exit and drive around the property. In two days it has already proven its value (for fun and work).

The weather hit the mid-60s yesterday, so I’ve been able to get more of the old dove-cage removed. the next step will be to move the propane tank. Meanwhile, I’ll be leveling the dirt in anticipation of adding gravel and then raised garden beds. Here is a before and after comparison (the wood had has been removed and the area is actually partly dug out).

Before-after-dove-shack-lores

In the meantime, during a cold stretch in late Feb/Early March, we made more progress inside. This time, we’ve completed the remodel of a room that was, under the previous owner, an entertainment room, then it became our bedroom when we moved into he house. Now that we’ve moved into the master bedroom, it has become Ann’s craft room.

Here is a before pic taken by the previous owner:

This photo shows roughly the same angle:

2022-03-08-craft-room-remodel1

And a few other photos. It is kind of any odd room. We didn’t want to change too much as we are may be remodeling this whole area in a couple years.2022-03-08-craft-room-remodel2

Newest Authenticast Surrey DJ-3A

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models, toys

eBay has been a bit frustrating lately as there has been a dearth of interesting vintage jeep items to purchase (especially interesting brochures). However, I did spot this Authenticast jeep for sale. The front bumper is broken (which seems the norm), but I do have the broken piece, so I will try to put it back together. Importantly, the straps, fringe and spare tire are all there (these are the three things most often missing).
