Wanted: Truck Cab Western Montana

• CATEGORIES: wanted

I’m not entirely sure what the buyer wants, but you maybe you have it?

“I am looking for a 49-62 Willys pickup with a large back window cab. I only need the sheet metal so a straight clean complete body with or without a drive train is all I am after. I will be putting the body on another frame/chassis. I would be interested in maybe buying one or several if the price is right and I can end up making one good body out of the pieces and parts. I am not looking for a mechanically restored or even mechanically functional rig–just one that can be brought back to look good without a major ordeal. If you have something that might work please call me at 406-549-5943 or email to this add.”

1952 CJ-3A Galt, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $2000

(01/06/10) Those are some great old slot rims, with nice tires on them.  There’s also a good engine and updated brakes.  The glass looks good.  The rust situation doesn’t appear too bad from the pics.   I’d say this isn’t a bad price.

“’52 Willy’s flat fender jeep, CJ3A. 5″ Lift, 3″ springs and 2″ shackles.  New 34″ x 9.5″ Super Swampers.  GM 231ci V6.  11′ Front drum brake kit.  This baby is a little rough and will need work to be put back on the road… but  it runs, drives, and stops.  Running gear is stock, 4wd works.  It also comes with a top w/doors, but plastic is yellowed and may be junk??  Has been on NON-OP w/DMV for about 10yrs now.  MAY be interested in a partial trade…  I really want a Springfield XD 45, full, compact, and/or tactical considered.”

1947 CJ-2A Peoria, AZ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3300

(02/12/09) This CJ-2A has a number of custom details.  The engine compartment looks nicely laid out. This jeep also sports the enlarged windshield; I’m not certain if this is custom or an aftermarket product?? .

“1947 Willys jeep with Chevy 283 small block (runs great), 3 speed, NO RUST,set up for duel optima batteries, rewired the whole jeep, took all the old nuts and bolts and replaced them with new,full roll cage,costom bumpers, holds matching (new) 33×14.50 spare tire and Hi-lift jack mount, $600 Holey truck avenger, $800 clutch, Exhaust, rhino liner tub, excelent front seats with back bench seat (seat belts), Custom windsheild and doors that lock, custom Cooper top, Racho suspension (leaf springs, shocks, shackles) Dana 30 front with disc brakes and locker, Dana 44 rear,too much to remember but I have reciepts for allmost everything I’ve done to it in the last 14 years. I’ve only put around 200 miles on it since I’ve owned it which means everything is in like new condition except for paint has brush scratches, 2 ez fix dents (nothing bigger than a lemon). Dana 44 left side axle shaft is bent and needs to be replaced (not the whole axle assembly). Theres a lot more but cant remember everything. Point is.. if you like the jeep and you want something classic that is a major head turner for the family to enjoy for years to come like my family and I have enjoyed. It’s the most reliable old jeep in the world:) I used to put car seats in it and me and my girls would be off finding those hidden fishing holes and camp sites. I thought I would own this jeep for ever but I lost my good job and now I’m under paid and have to make big sacrifices. I’ve already done everything that needs to be done to an old jeep so now all you have to do is make me an offer and steal it. ”

Roberto Flores, Illustrator Extraordinaire

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Comics, Features • TAGS: .

If you are a regular reader of the CJ-3B page, you have likely seen Roberto’s drawings and maybe saw his CJ-3B, too.  At CJ-3A.com you’ll see his work at the top left.  If you haven’t, I’ve add a few images of his drawings and his jeeps below for your enjoyment.  You can find Roberto in a variety of places on the internet, including his own website, his blog, another blog and online store.  He lives in Spain, but I think is recognized, at least by old school Willys lovers, world-wide.  Thanks for sharing and keep up the great work!

Here’s some pics of Roberto’s CJ-3B and I believe that’s his CJ-3A (I didn’t get any info on that)?

Here are some of Roberto’s drawings.

The first is a comic for “4×4 Story Magazine Spécial Jeep” issue 26, Mai-Juin 2009.  It is a French bimonthly magazine, based on the adventures of collectors and restorers of jeeps. Original size, 21 cms. x 14,8 cms.

This is a commissioned drawing ordered cartoon for a French customer, over cardboard. The characters which appear on this are the customer, driving his Willys jeep “Follow Me”, from WW2. He´s accompanied by his wife and son.  Acrylics over carboard. Dimmenssions: 42 x 29.7 cms.

This is a logo drawn for a page on jeep Willys MB/Ford GPW of World War II. Pencil and computer on paper.

Here’s a full list of links:

Quinn’s new 3 lever shift boot & bikini top

• CATEGORIES: Builds

Quinn asked if I knew of any 3 lever boots for a tc & overdrive.  I said I didn’t, so he approached his local upolster to have him build something. If you have the same problem, it’s a good solution.  He also had his guy tuck the corners of a CJ-5 bikini top to fit nicely.  Good ideas and thanks for sharing!  You can see more pics of Quinn’s Jeep here.

1953 Truck Walla Walla, Wa **SOLD** … Meet Clarence!

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500. It’s a great ad though.

Clarence needs a good home.  I’m not sure if this ad is more art exhibit or more detailed explanation of the problems, but I really liked the pics; Enough to present them in full, though there are so many, I regulated most to the main page.  Enjoy.

“NUTSHELL VERSION:  1954 Willys Overland “jeep” truck, 134ci 4 cylinder engine (original), 4×4, Borg-Warner T-90 transmission (3 speed), Spicer 18 transfer case (hi, lo, neutral), 15″ wheels, Original “jeep” hubs, Runs well, Drives well.”

======================

Clarence is a 1953 Willys Overland “Jeep” truck.

I purchased Clarence from an older gentleman in Caldwell Idaho, who bought him from his original owner. Clarence had not been driven for over 2 years when I had bought him. He ran just enough to get him onto the car hauling trailer.

Being that Clarence is 57 years old, he has some wrinkles and hic-ups I like to call “character”. Clarence and I went for a nice drive out in the country today to find a nice spot to take some pictures. I will try to express in pictures and writing all the “character” traits that Clarence has that makes him, I believe, so wonderful.

This one is on the drivers side fender. Fortunately it did not require any welding. Also note the “4 wheel drive” emblem is on this side.

Clarence is 4 wheel drive (4×4) with the original “jeep” hubs. I have used the 4 wheel drive in the snow and in the hills and it works great! He has the original 15″ wheels (3 black and 2 white). Which have radials on them that have over %50 life left. Although throwing some sealer in them or possibly some tubes wouldn’t be a bad idea. I currently stop by Les Schwab once a month to have them top them off with air

He also has the original Borg-Warner T-90 3-speed transmission. Which is still paired up with the original Spicer 18 transfer case

The inside is not to bad, although far from perfect. The bench seat has two storage spaces underneath. The seat appears to have been re-upholstered by a “non-professional”. It has some broken springs, but no tears. I did put in seat belts so that I could take my daughters around with me.

1946 CJ-2A Portland, Or eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

You gotta love the ‘flower’ box on the windshield … well, at least is looks like a flower box. According to the CJ-2A page, there was only production of 73,378 CJ-2As produced by the end of 1946, which would make this CJ-2A, with a serial number of 73459 as an early ’47 (assuming VINs, bodies, etc etc weren’t switched).  I didn’t realize this had the 6 cylinder in it.  It fits snugly. No title!

“1946 Willys Jeep CJ-2A. I’ve owned this jeep for about 16 years. We use it every year during elk and deer season. Other than that it’s stored inside undercover. The body is pretty straight for it’s age and  has very little rust, although there is some under the driver and passenger seat pans. The seats are just the steel frame with no cushions. The speedometer is missing but has the other gages. She starts easily and runs good but don’t plan on going anywhere fast (top speeds about 45mph). The original flat head 4 has been replaced with a Willys Super Hurricane 6 cylinder 226 cu. in. engine (produced by willys after 1954 for their pick ups.) It fits very nicely and delivers about 115 hp.so lots of power for climbing or dragging that big one out of woods. Transmission and transfer case are stock and work fine, although half of the rear driveline is missing (I think it dropped off during the tow home this year). The paint is mostly camo with the original red showing inside the cab area. I have’t had it registered since I bought it and can’t find the original title so I’ll issue a notarized bill of sale.”
