UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This GPW has been in the family for 60 years.  The owner is 96.

“This is a 1943 Ford Jeep. My Dad, 96 years old now,  bought this jeep in California in about 1950, and has had and maitained it all His life. This was his pride and joy. He has pictures of all us kids in it, out on the desert in Calif, and in the San Bernardino mountains. The Jeep has been in Many Parades, toting World War II,  Millitary Warriors. The jeep as far as I know is all original. He always talked about it being original. He has  had it in storage the last few years. We started it up, but gas tank has a leak. He has a lot of extra parts, hood, radiater, wheels, gas tank, etc. It does need some TLC, but still in Great shape for a 1943 vehicle. The seats and motor, and other parts are stamped with the Ford, letter F symbol. We took quite a few pictures, from all angles, so hopefully this will help.”

1950 Jeepster Ephrata, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Here’s a nice Jeepster that includes an 8-track tape player.

“Parade car.  This jeepster is an older restoration from Ohio.  It was a Shriner’s parade car and was in the Jeepster Club of America.  I have owned and enjoyed it for three years with no problems.  It has a Buick V6, power steering and an automatic transmission.  I’m sure the original mileage is over 100,000 miles but I have no idea of the true miles.  It was obviously restored at one time but would need to be redone at some point if you want a show car.  It looks good going down the road and garners lots of attention and thumbs up.  Top is good with a boot and all side windows. It is the original color scheme which was a hard to get color.  It has sixteen horns and a great eight track with your very own Johnny Cash tape!  I can tell that it has had some rust repair in the past which is to be expected in a 60 year old Jeepster.  Buy this just in time for your local 4th of July parade. Vehicle is for sale locally, I reserve the right to end this auction early.”

UPDATE: Price dropped to $700.  It appears the seller has put some of the ’46 back together again based on the most recent pics (the two pics on the top).

(02/27/2010) This looks like a pile of parts.  Note the cage is probably for a CJ-5, which is why it doesn’t fit properly in the front.  I like the two old slot rims.  I think you’ll need to get two additional jeeps just to make one whole one out of these two.

“I have 2 willys jeeps a 46 an a 47 cj2a.

Springs, Things, Dumb Luck & My Birthday

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

Well …

June 5th was my birthday.  For my 45th birthday, my mother gave me some cash and said ‘get yourself something special’.  It seemed simple enough.

I decided to get myself the rear lift for Biscuit that I’d delayed ever since I discovered my rear springs weren’t quite as high as I had thought they were (can you say mismeasurement?).

Fortunately, I’d had the fore-sight (yes, it does happen now and then) to use some late 1980s cherokee springs in the rear, because they were inexpensive and widely used.

So, on Saturday June 5th I dropped by the Japolpy Jungle in Nampa, tools in hand, sun in the sky and enthusiasm high, for some shopping!

You see, I’d done some research and it turns out that the folks with Cherokees have been using Chevy S-10 and similar vehicles as low budget lift solutions. Simply using the eye-cutoffed main leaf, builders can achieve a 1″ plus lift.

So, I went in search for a S-10 of some kind.  Low and behold, I quickly found a S-10 truck with no truck bed, which meant NO crawling underneath the vehicle — halelluah, it truly is my birthday 🙂

Even better, there was little rust, so the nuts and bolts came apart easily.  Not only that, but I gained some extra karma by loaning some tools to a couple guys who hadn’t quite brought what they needed. I was set … or thought I was ….

After gathering the springs and a few extra hoses, clamps and other items, I left Jalopy Jungle and looked forward to a quick and easy lift.

Of course, it’s never that easy ….

As dumb luck would have it, when I first aligned my rear drive line, I set it up so that my drive line went straight out from my rear pumpkin and only angled from the transfercase.

A simple lift of 2″ with a couple of the leafs from the S-10 Blazer obliterated the dumb luck.  2″ of lift altered the geometry of the rear driveline enough to create vibrations that rattled the vehicle at speeds as low as 30 mph (seriously rattled).  At first, I thought the vibrations were the result of bad u-joints, a bent driveline, a loose transfercase output shaft, and more.  I also tried changing up the spring height, installing different variations of springs 7 times.  Finally, because of the Dana 18 gears I installed in the Dana 20, I was able to rule out everything, but the rear drive shaft, because I was able to cruise down the road at 30 mph using the front drive line.  So, the problem was with the rear driveline … damn!

So, I chose today (Saturday the 12th), a cloudless, beautiful windy day in the 80s when I should be jeeping, to be crawling around the garage finding a solution to the problem.

First, I started from scratch.  I rebuilt the old springs and took Biscuit for a drive; good news, there were no vibrations.  So, it was the lift and the geometry of the rear driveline that was causing the problem.

Next, I lifted the rear using only 2 long leafs from the S-10 with eyes removed.  I also used a custom ‘angle leaf’ to compensate for the 1.5″ leaf.  Finally, I positioned an angular measuring device on the bottom of the pumpkin to insure it didn’t move much.

Well, after 5 hours of work, I can finally announce success!!!!!  No vibrations and I have my 1.5″ lift which leveled out Biscuit’s body.  So, tomorrow I get my delayed birthday drive.

Not only that, but after testing 3 different fuel gauges, I have a fuel gauge that properly measures the level … So happy birthday to me!

Here are some pics of the painful, week-long process.

1966 CJ-5 Tucson, Az $3000

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: , .

Here’s a nice looking Tuxedo Mark IV CJ-5 out of Tucson.

“Up for sale is a 1966 Jeep CJ5A Tuxedo Park Mark IV model. In 1966 there were only 1190 of these upscale sporty CJ5’s made which makes it somewhat of a rare desireable model. This Tuxedeo comes with many of the stock factory options such as the chrome front and rear bumpers, tail lamps, windshield hinges and hood latches, Tuxedo hood badges, hubcaps that sport the “Jeep” emblem, tranny column shift, drop down rear license plate holder, etc. Some of the optional factory equipment are the factory body steps, two stage front and rear leaf springs, single lever transfer case shifter, rear back seat, etc. Some of the non-stock equipment are the front high back seats, roll bar, heater, spring shackles, tires and rims. It has the original 4 cyl. engine that runs good but smokes a little.The 4 wheel drive works good, no issues. The body is in overall good shape considering it’s age. It has some minor rust issues in the normal rust areas that Jeeps get (photos illustrate areas) but overall minor and easily repairable. The body floor boards and hat channels are very solid and in great shape, as the vehicle has spent all of it’s life in southern California and southern Arizona. Vehicle does not come with a title. It was last titled and registered in California, but I never got around to titling or registering in Arizona therefore it will come with the California paperwork from last owner and a notorized Bill of Sale from me. I really hate to sell this rare Jeep considering the many years I looked for a nice easy restorable Tuxedo Park, but due to family health issues I am forced to sale it. Vehicle is sold in as is condition, no warranty expressed or implied. $3000 obo. If you have any questions please feel free to call Ernie @ 520-444-0632.”

A Project Idea – 4 Door Willys Truck

I ran across this thread today at alaska4x4network.com.  The designer wanted to combine a couple trucks into a four door truck.  He photoshopped the mockup together below.  I think it would make a good looking project.
