1946 CJ-2A VEC? Ogden, UT Auction

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

Roger shared this CJ-2A with driver side indents. I suspect that top requires the vertical windshield. The bidding is currently at $3300 with 9 hours to go. The drain holes have been filled and bow holders removed, so this likely has had some bodywork. It’s listed as a 1945, but more likely a ’46.

“I have slowly brought this truck back to a road worthy state. The truck has been altered over the years. I have tried to get it back to original as I can afford to. It was a flat bed when I got it. I found a box in decent shape and mounted that. The rust has been abated (some added bondo but not much). The floorboards are solid , so is the bed floor. The frame is solid as well no repairs. The engine and transmission are original, and the 4WD works. The engine is a little tired but still runs well after warming up. This truck doesn’t burn or leak anything, pretty amazing for a Willys.

New parts-
carburetor, fuel line, water pump, radiator, tires (5), electronic ignition, gauges, all new brakes (Master cylinder, shoes, wheel cylinders, lines, proportioning valve) new gas tank, and electric fuel pump. I also have a wiring harness but not installed yet.

I am sure I am forgetting something. If interested please email. Canoe not included.”

“1949 Willys Jeepster VJ3. I was told the car originally had the 4 cylinder engine. The gentleman I purchased from replaced it with a 6 cylinder engine which I was told was from a Studebaker. It is actually an F-161 from a 1952-54 Willys Aero or Wagon. He thought the car was under powered with the 4 cylinder. Manual transmission with overdrive. Car was also repainted from the original blue to the cream/red color. Not currently running. I had it running 20 years ago for what it’s worth. Engine turns over. Interior is in good condition with original rubber floor mat. Side curtains are there as well. Solid condition. A good cleaning would have it show well or it’s ready to restore back to original. Asking $7,500. Located in Greencastle, PA. Not far from Carlisle and Hershey car shows.”

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.
