‘1971’ CJ-3B Battle Ground, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $6500

(04/29/2010) This is CJ-3B on top and ’71 CJ-5 on the bottom.  The front shackles have been reversed.  Much more done as well (the seller provides a very long description in the Ad).

“What I have is a CJ3B siting on a 1971 CJ5 Frame, so it has been titled as a 71 CJ3B. It has a strong running Buick 225 V6 Oddfire, T18 4spd transmission with granny 1st. and new clutch, Fresh rebuilt Dana 20 transfer case, newer drivelines and U-Joints, open knuckle Dana 30 front with disk breaks (no locker), Dana 44 rear with welded spiders, Front shackle conversion, Rancho lift springs (sprung under axle), Powder Coated black custom front and rear bumpers, Hi-Lift mount on rear with storage rack, SW guages (fuel, amps, oil, water temp, tachometer all work fine) Speedometer gear just went out so it needs replacing on the transfer case otherwise it works fine, has brand new cable. Lights and signals works perfect, even hazards. Brakes are great, 4×4 works flawlessly. Solid body and frame. Frame has been braced in the weak spots. Good 32×9.50 TSL’s on black steel wheels with allot of offset to keep the tires out further, it will fit 35’s with a shackle lift…..”

Just a few updates tonight

• CATEGORIES: News

There weren’t a lot of updates on Craigslists this evening.  I have several reports for tomorrow: 1) I readjusted my carb after having more problems; 2) I went jeeping today for about 4 hours and the carb worked great, though I ran into a problem with a geyser; and 3) I’ll be going out again tomorrow to see if I fixed today’s geyser issue.

Enjoy Memorial Day!

1953 M-170 Lakeview, OR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-170 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

(05/01/2010) I like this one.  However, the engine hasn’t been run in a while.  Also, rear drivelines generally don’t just bend, so i suspect the rear end might need a rebuilt.

“1954 Willys M170 Front Line Ambulance. Serial #10538. This was running when it was parked. I don’t know much about the Jeep other than what I was told by the Rancher I got it from. NO TITLE ranch jeep sence late 70s was parked in a barn after rearend went out. I towed it home with no problems. Rear driveline is bent, I do not hear any noise in rearend when it is puled with towbar. This jeep was at an airport when the rancher aquired it. Has the military radio, mike, and loud speker in the dash. see pictures. I have not done anything with it SOLD AS-IS NO WARRANTY. I can store for awhile but will be outside. CASH or BANK DRAFT ONLY!! ”

I’m gonna guess that this is a rare 1968 CJ-3B titled as a 1969, as I believe ’68 was the last production year.

1953 CJ-3B Rockville, MD **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This is a good looking CJ-3B. The seller provides a nicely detailed description.  The drain holes have been filled in.

“Here is a very nice 1953 Willys CJ-3B that is roadworthy.  I run errands in it frequently.  I have the title in my name so no drama there.  The Jeep is still mostly original with the Hurricane engine and T-90 transmission, both of which work great. The engine starts right up hot or cold, no smoke and is very smooth. I’ve had the Jeep for two years, and from what I’ve been told by the previous owner, the Jeep was totally refurbished 12 years ago. I have no reason to doubt that. The paint still has some shine but there are some surface rust spots. There is also rust on the drivers side support for the fender. Also some rust on a cross member under the tub near the rear wheel wells. Since I’m in the disclosing mode, the only gauges that are hooked up are the temperature gauge and the oil pressure gauge. The odometer works but the speedometer has a broken needle. The ampere meter and the gas gauge are not hooked up and will be good things for a “to do” list. The seats are not original and in pretty bad shape under the seat covers, but they look okay. The emergency brake cable needs to be replaced….”

WWII Braden J2-134 Capstan Winch **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Parts • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Josh is auctioning this nicely restored Capstan Winch on eBay.

He writes, “You are bidding on a WW2 BRADEN J2-134 CAPSTAN WINCH for the WW2 Ford GPW, GPA, Willys MB and Weasel.     This auction is for the head unit as pictured and the Portrayal Press Capstan Winch manual. The winch is the correct war period model with the four cap screws in the head.  The winch has been been sandblasted, cleaned, and painted with TM9 Ordnance Red oxide epoxy primer and TM9 lusterless Olive Drab shade #6. In the preservation of this winch I did create a custom gasket for the oil sump and will include the broken original with the sale. I also fabricated a new top cover and will also include the damage original.  As you can see in the pictures the gears all look fantastic and the winch turns easily and smoothly as it should. All oil pan bolts are marked RA. The only negative things I can say about the winch are that the oil pan has a couple of dents (they could be worked out) and the area around the bottom drain plug has been brazed at one time. The drain plug does still function and the repair doesn’t appear to leak. Both of these imperfections will not easily be visible when mounted.”

Tucker #57 — The Tucker Convertible

• CATEGORIES: Features

Long time readers know that ever since seeing the movie Tucker: The Man and His Dream I’ve been a fan of the Tucker automobile.  What I didn’t know was that in early January of 2010 a Tucker Convertible was finally completed after years of sitting as a pile of parts.  It turns out there was plenty of controversy surrounding this convertible, specifically was it really a Tucker or simply a Tucker look-a-like built from left over parts. You can read some history of the Tucker and the Convertible here.

Well, after much discussion, enough information has been unearthed to assure most people (can’t make everyone happy) that Tucker had been working on a convertible when the company was forced into bankruptcy and was labeled Tucker #57.  Though it took multiple people and 60 years,  Benchmark Classics, near Madison, Wi (a place I used to call home) finally has put this beauty together (restoration images).

Here are an image and a video:
