David Ommanney’s Hunting Wagon

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

David Ommanney appears to have been a well know big game hunter in Nairobi.  As best as I can tell, this is a modified Willys Wagon.  I have searched for a better image, but haven’t found one, though I found images of his later vehicle,  a Landrover.

Year GPW? Watsonville, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, GPW (Ford MB), MB

UPDATE: **SOLD* Was $6500.

I’m not sure what we have.  It’s got a GPW Frame, a Willys Body, a CJ-2A windshield and gearing.   This will need the clutch replaced.

“Looks great, runs fine, but needs a new clutch. Willys body, Ford frame, Good tires, breaks, etc. I bought this Jeep for $7K earlier in the year thinking it would be perfect for use on our ranch, but not realizing the Jeep is geared extremely low and realistically only gets up to about 30mph. The ranch is out behind Mount Hamilton and it would take us far too long to drive this little Jeep out there, so I kept it as a collectible “fun” vehicle. We were out joy riding (it’s a fun old ride) and the clutch gave out. Had to tow it back home, now it’s been sitting for a couple of months (we start her up once a month). Make me an offer, times are tough and we need the cash.”

The easiest way to work on the underside of a Jeep is …

UPDATE 2: See a pic of a tipped jeep from Tom’s Dad’s Time in WWII.

UPDATE: Grant mentioned that Vernco demonstrates how to tip a jeep on its side.  See a pic below and some steps.  Learn more at Vernco.com.

Tip it on its side!  Alex spotted this post from the Miljeep website.  Unfortunately, my french is a little rusty … ok, really really rusty.  I’ve posted two pics here.  You can see the other two at the Miljeep website.

I tried searching for additional jeeps on their side, and though I couldn’t find any more, I found some other cool pics that I’ll feature over the next couple of days.

From Vernco’s Site, 9 prep steps for tilting your rig:

1. Drain the fuel tank and run the engine until the carb is dry.
2. Drain the engine oil, transmission and transfer case lube. (He didn’t drain the radiator, but notes he probably should have. It didn’t leak but caused a problem when he had to remove it later.)
3. Remove or drain the oil bath air cleaner.
4. Remove the battery.
5. Remove the passenger seat since it can pivot free.
6.Remove or restrain anything else that could come free.
7.Inflate the “downhill” tires to max pressure since they must support the vehicle weight on an angle while the tip is in progress.
8. Fit some 2×4′s between the engine block and “downhill” frame rail so the engine mounts wouldn’t shift.
9. Chain the engine to the frame so the mounts wouldn’t let loose.

Raymond Concrete Pile Company does Soil Research

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, CJ-3B, Features

UPDATE: Derek’s got much more information on the CJ-3B site.

This image was on Vulcanhammer.net, but no longer seems to be there. In it, you can see Raymond Concrete Pile Company’s Gow Division’s SPT rig using a PTO to bore a hole for soil research.  This is actually an advertisement for the Jeep.

The caption with the image is, “The Jeep helps cut our costs by getting more done”.

And the text below the image is:
In building anything big, the first step is soil sampling.  Gow Division of the Raymond Concrete Pile Company.  57-year-old construction company with projects around the world, keeps its 28 ‘Jeeps’ going eight hours a day in its work of investigating soil conditions to furnish information to architects and designers so they can determine the best type of foundations for construction projects of all kinds.  Here is one of Raymond’s “Jeeps” with power take-off being used to operate an exploratory boring outfit.

The manager of Raymond’s Gow Boring division says: “We were the first to use the “Jeep” in soil testing work, and we have been using more and more “Jeeps” ever since.  The “Jeep” helps cut our costs by getting more done. It can maneuver over rough ground in the country and get into tight spots between buildings in the city.  It furnishes the pwoer for operationg our rigs and carries our equipment quickly from job to job so that we’re always ready to go.”

Here’s an example of a post hole digger. So, maybe they ‘dig’ with some kind of custom corer and then use the PTO to lift it (which is what they appear to be doing in the photo above)?
