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.

A “New” CJ-3B from ICON

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: ICON is no longer selling these jeeps. They were priced at $45,000

Jump over to the CJ-3B Page and check out the latest on the new ICON CJ-3B, the first of several (or many?) new CJ-3Bs that will roll of the ICON plant from Van Nuys, CA.  Derek covers this vehicle very thoroughly.  It appears they’ve built a good rig.  The engine is an interesting choice, likely providing debate for some time.   Make sure to check out the gauge panel; it’s very different!

You can also see many pictures of an early prototype here from the CJ-3B Page.

1951 M-38 Austin, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8000

There’s been a variety of upgrades on this jeep.

“…  When we first got this jeep, it was in pretty rough shape and close to 100 holes were filled in on the body from various things being mounted/removed over the years (blackout lights, etc etc) Virtually all of the work to it was done by either myself, my stepbrother, or a pro shop. I cant remember exactly how many miles are on it “after build”, but I’m guessing the motor/rebuilt tranny has about 5k, the brake system (entirely replaced at time of conversion) about 2k, tires about 2k. again, this is a toy that was hardly ever used.

Here’s the parts list: Chevy 305 HO from a mid 80’s Camaro Z28 installed by Joe White’s Performance Automotive (THE place to go back in the day) motor had to be canted and fenders pushed out to make fit. remote oil and fuel filters, extra griffin aluminum racing radiator we never installed comes with it. the motor had less than 500 miles on it when we got it, Corvette clutch and pressure plate in 3 speed manual transmission, factory twin stick transfer case, custom rear drive shaft with CV joint built by Austin Drive Train, factory dana 25 front axle with Warn premium hubs, factory dana 30 rear axle with Detroit Locker, 5.13 gears front/rear, 11″ drum brake conversion all the way around (now it stops right!) with new master cylinder at time of install …..”

My Build: Cage is ready for Sanding and Paint

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

The day has gotten away from me, so this will be the only post tonight….

Today I completed the welding of the cage.  The below pictures show the cage prior to some grinding (and a little more welding and a little more grinding).

As I mentioned yesterday, I hadn’t decided on a paint color.  So, I visited the maker of the paints (Van Sickle Paints – Tractor Paints) I have used on the frame (one thing I really like about the paints is that they have a nice thick brush on color as well as a matching spray color).  It turns out, they have an ‘aluminum color‘.  So, I’m gonna give the aluminum color a try (I don’t really have high hopes to be honest).  The worst case scenario is I hate it; so then I’ll just paint it black.

Here’s a few pics from today:

rollcage_complete

rollcage_complete2

rollcage_complete8

Below is a close up of the back connectors. And in the pic below that, you can see the posts to which the back of the cage connects.  There are two bolts per side.  The bottom of the rollbars actually rest atop the post.  The reason I built this like this was because of a problem I ran into with my last jeep:  It was difficult to run the gas tank hose by the rear passenger-side cage connector.  To bypass that problem this time, I’m trying this post approach.

rollcage_complete4

rollcage_back_connect

Here’s a picture of the raw frame with the posts in the foreground, along with the middle loop platforms and front loop platforms.  The round posts support the seats (the seat platform actually screws onto the top of those round posts).  The round posts were invaluable in acting as a precise guide when placing the body onto the frame, keeping everything well aligned.

You can see more of the frame here http://www.ewillys.com/?p=417

Here’s a look at the front roll cage platforms and a drawing of how the connection occurs.

My Build: More Roll Cage Progress

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

I managed to get as far as I hoped to get today.  I got all the pieces fitted with welds mostly completed.  I expect to have it ready for paint by tomorrow.  I was going to paint the cage black, because I was planning on wrapping it with padding, but I’m liking the silver metal color, so I am considering some kind of metalic color.
