1940s MB Richford, NY $250

• CATEGORIES: MB

1940s_mb_richfordHere’s a parts jeep out of Richford that has seen better days.

“Old Willys Millitary Jeep………….. Rough Shape……………. NO TITLE………………
What you are buying is a parts vehicle. The axles are free turning, the transmission and transfercase are all right. The motor is complete, but has set up since comming here. The body is rough, So what you are buying is the running gear. 30 years ago the hedge rows and back lots were full of these old jeeps ……. Find one today….. The Transmission Alone….. Would cost what I’m asking for the whole unit. (607) 539-6899”

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This GPW is for sale by Matt at Edmund Angelus Automotive (view some of his work here).  Matt has done some fabulous flattie rebuilds.

“Item up!  A  ’44 Gpw. This is an ALL NUMBERS MATCHING unit!!! This unit also has less than 26-k original miles and under the hood it is very much in tact. If you are a PUREST, or not,k and looking for a GPW to restore, it does not get much better than this. Believe it or not, i am having a bit of separation anxiety about selling this one. This one is my baby, the one i spent Two Years trying to buy from the previous owner. You Know the type, Hords of Jeep parts, yet you have to approach them with a Lunar Lunatic Shemelment on Just so you appear to be from their same dimension. The only problem is returning to the real world with the part or said jeep. The motor does run! It will move under its own power. The cons are as follows….”

1946 CJ-2A Guilford, IN **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This has some interesting features.  The wide rimmed fiberglass body with no tailgate is unusual.  I’ve only seen the wide rimmed fiberglass bodys with tailgates.  The exhaust feature is something I haven’t seen either.  It appears to allow the drive to automatically switch between a direct header versus a muffler.  My concern with this jeep is the roll cage attached to the rear wheel wells instead of the frame.

1946 Willys Jeep for sale. Great condition. Runs great. 2 Wheel Drive. Chevy 350 small block built by Hines Race Engines in Cleves, OH.  Automatic transmission, fiberglass body. Dual Flowmaster exhaust with electric exhaust cut-outs. New windshield, Daytona tires are like new. Edlebrock carburetor.  Moroso valve covers and air filter. 373 rear end.  Five point racing harness in the driver’s seat.  Some very small chips in the paint which are shown in the pictures.  I have pictures, drawings, and receipts from the build.  Mileage on title lists 75,000 but actual mileage is unknown.  Light weight and fast.”

This is certainly a beautiful CJ-2A.  However, it’s not fully restored to original condition.  One of the obvious issues is the CJ-3A windshield it sports.

“Fully restored to original except for 12 Volt vice original 6 Volt system. $10,000 OBO. The Willys CJ2A was the first mass-produced Jeep intended for the civilian market, began production on July 17, 1945. Civilian Jeeps evolved from the model MB of World War Two fame.”

Reader Builds: Simon’s Tribute to His Uncle Bill

• CATEGORIES: Builds

uncle_billIn memory to his Uncle Bill,  a Brit named Simon, living in Colorado at the moment, has decided to paint his Willys 1943 MB in the marking of the unit his uncle commanded at the end of World War II.

His Uncle Bill, Lt. Colonel Charles William Arnot MC, OBE, TD, served in the Royal Army Medical Corps as a Field Surgeon in the British 50th (Tyne Tees) Division. Uncle Bill served through the dark days of 1939/1940 through to the liberation of Germany in 1945 eventually commanding 186th Field Ambulance.

His Uncle Bill died in the 1980’s when he was still young, and didn’t leave many mementos from his time in the War. So, Simon has pieced together the correct unit markings, together with history of the regiments progress through WWII from the internet, books, talking to family members and those items left by his Great Aunt.

As a result of this search, Simon has produced a PDF that documents his Uncle’s time during the war and decided to apply markings to his jeep which represent the unit his Great Uncle commanded in WWII, 186 Field Ambulance, part of the British 50th (Tyne Tees) Division.

Below is how Simon appllied the markings and below that an image of his jeep.

Vote for a 1948 M-38A1? I can’t do it!

• CATEGORIES: News

The Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union is sponsoring a 2009 Woodward Dream Cruise Calender Contest, along with the Oakland Press, The Macomb Daily and Daily Tribune.  As a part of this contest, the group has developed a website where readers can vote for the cars they want to see on the new Calendar.

A reader pointed to this contest out to me via a craigslist ad.  The Ad shows a Willys Jeep and asks people to vote for the jeep.  So far, so good.  I’m into it.

I’m ready to launch a grassroots campaign.  I’ll encourage, prod and poke people to cast their votes for the jeep.  We can do it.  We can get it on the calendar.

My hopes high, I go to the actual contest.  I view the approved list of 72 vehicles.  Cool, lots of nice vehicles.

But then, I spot the jeep.  It’s listed as a 1948 M-38A1.  It’s such a classic, that it was never produced!  How can this be?  Oh the horror!  I mean, this isn’t just some kind of incorrect listing of a jeep for sale; instead, it is supposed to be a list of classic cars.

Well, I just can’t support that.  So, until the correct model gets listed, I can’t vote for it.
