On the heals of yesterday’s GPA, I thought I’d do a brief shout out to the Schwimmwagen.  You can read more and see more pics about the Schwimmwagen at Brian’s site. Here’s a pic (below) from July 12 1944 (from Brian’s site as well).  Here’s some youtube videos.

1953 M-38 Jackson, MS **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $7000

I like a lot of things about this jeep, but I don’t get the bumpers — those are bumpers, aren’t they?  As far as I know, M-38s were stopped in ’52.

My Build: My windshield frame painted


Here’s some before, during and after shots of my CJ-3A windshield rebuild.  Special thanks to John for the vent bracket.  Mine broke off and John created a new one for me.  It works beautifully.  I was able to de-paint and can reuse the windshield gasket, so now all I need is the glass and the cowl rubber and it’s completed.  Necessary repairs included welding up 8 holes and welding the crack in the frame.  Next, finishing the brakes.

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


1947_cj2a_maricopacityUPDATE: Was $3000. **SOLD**

“… Ok, it is its original red. It has a full cage. It has a 350 Chevy V8 swapped in with a 400 Turbo Automatic. The transfer case is 1 speed and the jeep is FT 4×4. It has “Emergency Drive” which locks the transfer case and makes it drive like a standard 4×4 instead of the FT style. It appears to have about a 3″ lift on it and is sitting on a damn-near brand new set of 31×12.50 R15 BFG Muds (the old style). For my rockcrawling needs, this guy is too big of a project to get it where I want it. For someone who loves Willys or wants a Jeep to make nice… this is a great platform to start. I’d like to get $3000 for it or do some trading….”

Buick 225 V6 Silver Lake, Wa $250


buick_v6_everettUPDATE:  Price dropped to $250.  That’s a great price.

This engine looks in very good shape. I wonder if it was painted before or after is was pulled.

“Buick “Dauntless” V6 from CJ5. This motor ran strong when it was pulled a couple months ago to do a V-8 conversion. I was going to convert my 4 cylinder to this motor but I have decided to wait for financial reasons. Here are the block casting numbers ( #1381623 ). This particular block series was in production from 1967 to 1974. This is the real deal pulled from a CJ5. Block casting numbers again are ( #1381623 ).  $250, Call Brett at 425-971-0365″

1948 VEEP Tacoma, Wa For Trade

• CATEGORIES: VEEP (VW Jeep), Scamp, Others

1948_veep_tacomaThis doesn’t appear to be an M-38-like body, as I don’t see cutouts on the driver’s side.  This is unusual.

“I have a 1948 willys (vw powered) aka veep. I am looking to trade it for a 71′ or earlier vw bus, bug, or ghia. the veep has vw bug suspension good working brakes and good tranny. it does not have a motor in it at this time it takes a standard vw aircooled bug engine.

1965_cj3b_clarkstonUPDATE:  Status unknown. The price had dropped to $2500.  The seller included an overdrive with the cj3b.

It appears this is either a M-38 body or a replacement body.  For $300 it looks like it has a variety of parts, including an almost full cage.

“it’s got a great body on it, very straight. I don’t have the title for it, but it’s a great jeep for parts or whatever you wanna do with it.”

Builds: Darryl’s 1943 GPW


As mentioned yesterday, here’s a quick look at the 1943 GPW Darryl rebuilt.  He did some beautiful work (both in building and documenting the build).  He also built a trailer (pics below as well).  He lists his objective below:

To create for my personal use and enjoyment, a fully-functional, factory new appearing and extremely accurate “representative” WWII jeep using a new reproduction tub on an original, all “F-script” Ford wartime-production drivetrain, while containing costs and allowing minor deviations (a Solex carburetor) from the original configuration for ease of maintenance, reliability and safety and to be driving it within 12 months of starting the project.

1948 CJ-2A Warren, Mi $6000


1948_cj2a_warrenThe body has been placed onto a ’75 CJ frame, which means something had to be stretched (or the frame chopped) to make the body parts fixed.  It appears the builder stretched the body at the point where the body normally meets the fenders.  Meanwhile, it appears the hood was lengthened somehow (I can’t tell quite how).

1948 & 1949 CJ-2As Belleville, WI **SOLD**


UPDATE:  Was $1200.  **SOLD**

I used to live in Madison and remember driving through the small town of Belleville.  Given the lack of titles and the non-running condition, I suspect the price may drop.
