Chris’ DJ-3A

• CATEGORIES: Builds, DJ-3A, Features

Searching for something else, I discovered Chris Kelley’s blog and his new Willys: a 1956 DJ-3A with 4wd.  I’ve seen enough DJ-3As with 4wd that I asked Bruce if he knew whether any DJ-3As came with a 4wd package, but to the best of his knowledge (which is the best I know of) he said there was no 4wd option of which he was aware.

Chris writes on his website about new purchase (sept 7 09) “Yep, you’re looking at a 1956 (sort of) CJ3a (sort of) Willy’s Overland Jeep (completely!).  Its sort of a 56 since that’s what the tub plate says.  Its also only sort of a CJ3A since the tub plate also says its a DJ3a, which was a 2 wheel drive version made for the postal service and other delivery trucks.  However, my best guess is that someone replaced the original tub with the one it has now, since this does have 4WD.”

It’s a good looking jeep, though there’s a small ding in the passenger rear, and here some pics from his site:

1960 Wagon Sparta, Wi **SOLD**

The seller notes there’s rust, but I can’t see much on the pics.  It’s almost ready for the road, but the seller doesn’t mention what it needs. (thanks Robert!)

2 CJ-6s Kingston, NY **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

For some odd reason, it appears a bear mistook the top jeep for a salmon and bit a huge chunk out of the passenger side of the jeep?!?  The seller of this operates a jeep salvage yard in Kingston, NY. The bottom jeep looks in decent, stock shape.

“Asking$2500.00 for the pair”

The Three Wheeled CJ-3A APU

UPDATE 2:  Learn More here

UPDATE:  As noted in the article below, these were developed by O. E. Szekely & Associates, who also created the modified CJ-3A for the Navy.  The APU pictured in color below is from the Miramar Marine Corps Air Museum in San Diego.

I keep thinking that I’ve seen all the different jeeps that were ever built.  But nope, here’s another one I’ve not seen before,  discussed on this Argentinian website. Both the pics below and the video are from that website.  It’s really cool!

Dinner Time at the Rusty Jeep Hickory Pit

• CATEGORIES: Features, Monuments/Statues • TAGS: , .

If you are like me, you love to eat slow, pit cooked meat (pork, beef, bison, chicken, and just about anything else).  Actually, I’m partial to Kalua Pork, named not for the beverage, but rather for the method of cooking:  Kalua Pork translates as “to cook in an underground oven”.  Now, I don’t have an underground over, but I have a heavy crock pot.  All you need is about 5lbs of pork butt or a picnic cut, a table spoon of liquid smoke and a table spoon and a half of salt.  Drop it into your pot (don’t add water).  Turn it on high.  Wait 5 or 6 hours.  Throw in about 1/4 cabbage sliced.  Cook another half hour, and it will be done:  I guarantte you will have some fantastic Kalua Pork.  Easy and nutritious.

But, if you don’t feel like cooking your own pork and you are near Port Aransas, Tx, then drop by the Rusty Jeep Hickory Pit.  And, of course, there’s even a rusty jeep in the parking lot (which no doubt ran until it was parked? lol).  Josh’s sister sent him some pics, seen below, and I found a few additional pics on the net (thanks Josh).

The sign below is attached to the front grille of the jeep.

1946 CJ-2A Rapid City, SD Trade


This seller is looking to trade for a truck.

“I have a 1946 Jeep Willys cj2a im looking at trading for a 71 chevy shortbox pickup. I would prefer a 4×4 but a 2×4 might be alright too if its in good shape. Engine doesnt really matter neither does transmission really. It should run or be close it but i wont turn down a good project if its in good enough condition.  My jeep willys is a 46 Cj2a and is complete minus a gas tank and ignition. Clear title in hand yours should be too. It comes with a brand new tailgate, windshield frame, seats and all rubber seals. The jeep is taken a part right now but sits as you see it in the picture. I picked it up a few years back and just havent had the time to get into it yet.

Tires hold air just fine its been garaged for the past 5 years so shes ready to be restored to your liking. It still has the original hurricane flat 4 engine too which turns over smoothly. All new brakes on it too. wired 12v instead of 6v now.

Im located in rapid city. I can trailer the Willys to you within reasonable distance for milage if you dont live in the area. I may take cash for the Willys too if your interested but dont have a nice shortbox for me. Shoot me an email and we can go from there.”
