I love the comment by the seller of this frankenstinien vehicle: “unique cab style”.

“1948 Willys Jeep CJ2 in non running condition. Could restore or make a parts Jeep. Odometer shows 26626 miles, true milage unknown by me. I purchased as a project and never did get to it. Body and frame seem decent, the floor of the rear area is rusted through as seen in picture. Unique cab style. Has 540 PTO on rear.  I do have the seat frame for it but not upholstered. Will have to be hauled or trailored. I live near Dixon IL 61021. Can either use PayPal or pay cash when picked up.”

1950 CJ-3A Tulsa, OK eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

It looks like there’s been some changes to the floor boards — probably rusted out and were replaced.

“We are selling our 1950 CJ-3A.  We have used this Jeep to explore many trails in Oklahoma and Arkansas.  The Jeep is nearly origional with only bolt on accessories and could easily be restored to origional condition if desired.  The body is in very good shape with only a little panel straightening needed.  I haven’t found any rust on the Jeep except for the hat channels which have been strengthened, but would require new for restoration.  This CJ is very solid….”

Bantam “Pilot Car” Reborn

• CATEGORIES: Bantam-FordGP-WillysMA-EarlyJPs, videos

Bill, who runs this great Bantam Website, forwarded me a link to the below video which reveals the results of a four year Bantam Reconnaissance Car Pilot recreation completed by Duncan Rolls.

From the YouTube website, Watch a perfectly authentic re-creation of the original Bantam Reconnaissance Car Pilot (the world’s first jeep) go on-road and off in a demonstration by builder Duncan Rolls. The Pilot Re-creation required over 3500 hours of work to build. The drive components are original Bantam and Continental parts, as are the gauge cluster and other parts (a total of 60 per cent of the vehicle). Duncan made the chassis and body completely by hand. The only original sheet metal was a stock Bantam cowl, but even that had to be widened by six inches, just like the original was. The original Pilot, delivered to the Army at Camp Holabird, MD on September 23, 1940, was lost to history after successful testing.

1948 CJ-2A Lowell, AR **SOLD**

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

The dashboard is unusual.

“1948 Willys Custom Jeep with a Ford 302 V-8 Engine, 4-Speed Manual Transmission and lots of other extras that makes for a perfect hunting/farming/ranching vehicle. This jeep has had a lot of alterations but runs and drives good. The body is straight and the drive train seems to be tight. The engine has limited blow-by but does show some exhaust smoke. Some reconditioning may be needed but it should provide you with a lot of great service.”

  1. 1. My Completed Cage in my jeep
  2. 2. What I thought about when building my cage
  3. 3. Links to dicussions about my cage
  4. 4. Other roll cage images


1.  MY CAGE:

2. MY THOUGHTS ON BUILDING THE CAGE

And an overview of my experience:

This post reflects my experience researching and building my roll cage.  My goal with this post is to eliminate the need for others to spend the hours and hours I spent researching weighing options and deciding upon a cage.  Note that while I have had a couple cages and my dad built two cages (back in the 70s), this was the first cage I designed, bent and built myself.

Rebuilt SM420 + Adapter Running Springs, CA $300

• CATEGORIES: Transmissions

This sounds like a great price.

“Have a newly rebuilt Chevy SM420 transmission. Bought it originally for my Willys wagon and never installed after going with a different drive train. This trans is one of the best for off roading due to its low 1st gear and is great in short wheelbase rigs since its only about a little over a foot long. This Trans also comes with an extra 420 that is not in great shape but its extra parts! I also have a Advanced Adapters SM420 to Dana 18 alum. adapter along with a twin stick Dana 18 T-case for sale as well. Asking $300 for the two trannys. If you have any questions just give me a call at 909 519 5787 Thanx!”

1943 GPW Denver, Co $4200

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

Jay went to go look at this jeep and provided the following description.  Thanks Jay!

The frame horns are a little screwed up in frontand has a rebuilt studabaker straight 6 in it instead of the ford motor.correct tranand transfer, runs good. The tub is the cleanest gpw tub ive seen except 1 hole that was cut in dash for a radio??. easily repairable. Very little rust except for a little by the axe/shovel location.Still has tool box lids, data plates on glove box, gas tand and sump, two original front seats. Frame number was “welded over” when motor mounts were changed for motor. Front crossmember was modified to drop radiator a little. I don’t think he is that negotiable.

Here’s a description from the sellers:

“Rebuilt 6 cyl. flathead engine. Rebuilt trans, Rebuilt transfer case. New brakes. New wheel bearings,New springs , has traction Bars.(for show) New Shocks. New steering linkage. Brand New tires. Custom Gas tank.  Has been all rewired and new gauges. Heater. Painted light Metallic Blue.Top is from a CJ -5 made to fit. This has been in AUTO SHOWS  in 1986,87,88,and 89. New Battery.. I am the third owner of this jeep. There is some rust by driver door where the shovel use to be  mounted.  303-433-7928”

Pete, from the Willys-Overland Jeepster Club,  emailed me a comment regarding Jeepsters the other day, teaching me something I didn’t know about Jeepsters (No Factory made 4wd models from ’48 – ’51).  He had a link to his website, so I checked it out.

I finally figured out what Santa rides in when there is no snow for his sleigh … he uses a bright red Jeepster!  Drop by JeepsterClub.com and learn more about their organization.
