“I have a 1949 CJ3A Jeep for sale. It runs and drives, has a blue bonded title. I got the parts to start the brakes, but haven’t installed them yet. It’s not a rust bucket and would be fine on a ranch as-is, but it needs work. It would be a fun project for someone who has the room and the mechanical ability for a do it yourself project. I am firm on the price.”

Year? CJ-3A? Laurel, MT $3500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, Features, Unusual • TAGS: , , , .

Jerry’s father is selling this jeep he found in Wyoming (contact Jerry via FB — https://www.facebook.com/groups/18657808157/permalink/10160120357838158).

Jerry was told this was one of about a hundred that were built by an unknown company. I looked through my archives, but could not find anything exactly like this one. Anyone ever seen one like this?

For all the work that was done to create it, it seems possible that more were made. Jerry indicates that the body is galvanized. The entire top is custom, along with the fenders, and it looks like the work is reasonably good. The doors are suicide doors. The hood looks like an original part. The cowl and dash may be original, but the dash has been modified. The fan shroud is galvanized with an old electric fan.

If forced to guess, I’d say if several hundred were built, that they were older jeeps that were stripped and rebuilt. If all like this one, they were designed for colder and wetter climates (permanent hood, perm dash, and a perm heater blower), so I could imagine these would have been constructed out of Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, or Northern Idaho.

Another theory is that if several hundred built, maybe they weren’t all built the same? Maybe some were more custom than others or more creative than others? That might explain some of the odd designs that we’ve seen over the years out of the northern Intermountain West? My assumption had been these were all home built, but perhaps not?

Ann’s Heading East …

• CATEGORIES: Features

Ann and her son Daniel will be traveling to NY, Philly, and DC over the next two weeks, so I will be juggling animals, chores, and managing the completion of 200′ of new walkways. I suspect she will be having much more fun than I! This may also affect updates …

The purpose of the walkways is 1) to reduce the dirt tracked into the bunkhouse, 2) to better marry the bunkhouse and the rest of the buildings together, 3) to make an access path for mowers/UTV from the west of the buildings to the east and 4) to prep the area for the new barn. With the pathways in place, we can then finish up the landscaping of the bunkhouse.

Before the walkways:

2022-09-30-walkways-before

Levels found and walkways dug. Forms, gravel bed, and cement to come this weekend.

2022-10-01-walkways-inprogress

This coming Saturday, the forms will be layed, rebar positioned, and concrete poured.

On the jeep front, we have decided that the next project will be setting up our corral system. Once that is done, we plan to set aside other property project updates in favor of me working on Biscuit and/or the race jeep starting roughly in early November.

Unclear how the seller arrived at the above price. The seller claims the jeep has only 10,000 miles, but this jeep has had some body work and has a few mods, so the year and mileage isn’t clear. My guess is an early 1960s with an early Tux Park package. No description provided.

The Qualls’ Roadtrip Part II

• CATEGORIES: News

(<– See pics from the westward trip here, Part I)

A few days ago, the intrepid Team Qualls reached the western destination: Ventura, California. This pic celebrates that achievement:

2022-09-30-roadtrip-ventura

Wasting no time, they turned north along Highway 1, a magnificent coastal drive I’ve had the pleasure of making several times, but never in a topless jeep!

2022-09-30-roadtrip-coast1

2022-09-30-roadtrip-coast2

It appears Randy and Carson kept driving north until they crossed over the Golden Gate Bridge. There, they discovered first hand the thick summer fog that often inundates the central coast, turning the weather from warm to near-frigid and the views from beautiful to a grayish-soupy-fog (where I lived in Aptos, California, from 2003-2006, the afternoon fog arrival was a near daily summer event).

Eventually, the pair turned east towards Yosemite National Park. Here are a few pics:
