1951 M-38 Boise, Id **SOLD**?

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, M-38

sheep_wagonsUPDATE: I dropped by the seller’s house today to check this jeep out.  Kim’s father is the actual seller and Kim is selling it for him. Both father and son rebuild wagon’s, with Kim specializing in Sheep Wagons (see pic to the right).  I suspect the large Basque population in southern Idaho (5th largest community of Basques in the world) fosters this unusual hobby (at least I’ve never seen these anywhere else).

As for the jeep, it turns out to be a pretty stock M-38 that runs.  It’s got some rough edges and needs some paint.  It’s got the dual battery setup.  It could use new seat covers and a new gas tank and a few other items.  A professional mechanic has done some work on it and can provide more specific information.

Builds: Trevor’s Old School CJ-2A

• CATEGORIES: Builds • TAGS: .

I gotta say I like this jeep.  There’s enough old school stuff to make me smile.  Check out the battery, the roll cage, the art on the back, the dashboard, the gauges, the gas pedal … I could go on.

The owner of this jeep is 16 year old Trevor, who inherited it from his father.  Trevor’s going to make some updates to this jeep, such as adding power steering.  He asked for some advice regarding steering so naturally I asked for pictures.

Trevor wrote, “thanks so much for your time and advice! it really means a lot to me cause i wanna get this thing out on the trails like my dad did back in day.”

Bantam Jeep Website

• CATEGORIES: Bantam-FordGP-WillysMA-EarlyJPs, Website • TAGS: , .

I ran across this Bantam website the other day.  Its full of pics of a single Bantam.  I love the Bantam multi gauge.

There’s not much information on the website.  This is all there is: “Less than 3000 Bantam Jeeps were produced. This B.R.C. 40 is #2649. The date of delivery was “June, 1941”. Fewer than three dozen of these classics have been fully restored and this, I believe, is one of the best! Be sure and check out the additional pages of pictures of this Bantam listed below

1946 CJ-2A Sacramento, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

This sounds like someone who bought this jeep, painted it green, made sure it was mechanically ok,  and is selling it.

“Title: Clear Engine: 4 Cylinder Exterior color:Green Transmission:Manual Fuel type:Gasoline Interior color:Green Options 4-Wheel drive Steering checked out, new master cylinder, brakes were adjusted and check out with no problems. Strong engine with good oil pressure, cold natured, so it needs choking until warmed up, but when warm, just bump starter and she fires right up, after 500 mile trailer ride there was only one small oil spot underneath it, it’s what we call “marks it territory very little”, shifts smooth, does NOT jump out of second gear, 4 wheel drive works great, has 5 new 7:00 X 16″ NTD (means non-directional tread, pulls just as good in reverse as forward ) 6 ply tires and tubes on original 16″ CJ rims, has WWII style fender blackout with NOS 6 volt blub (has voltage reducer) …”

My Build: Brodie Knob Installed

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

Sometime next week I hope to be bending my roll cage with my home-made tubing bender.  I’m waiting for the die to get here still.  I’m also waiting for the delivery of my windshield and cowl rubber so that I can get my windshield all ready to go.  In the meantime, I’ve been busy updating the website and doing a few things to the jeep.

One of those things was the installation of my brodie knob.  I discovered I could cut down a piece of rubber that I think was used by my dad when he installed his CJ-5 body on it’s frame.  It was the perfect thickness, so I cut it down, shaped it and installed it.  It’s nice and tight.  Here’s a few pics.

Willys Watches & Clocks from All-4-Corner

• CATEGORIES: Vendors

2watchesBrian suggested I launch a christmas section where people could find interesting jeep-related gifts. While I’m not ready to launch the page just yet, I’ll tag posts like this so I can find them later when I’m ready to do that.

This seller makes MB and M-38 watches and clocks, among a wide variety of other items available through his ebay store All-4-Corner.  I have not purchased any of these nor seen any in person, so I can’t attest to the quality, customer service, etc.

He writes on his blog, “I for some time have had some Willys MB Jeep items for sale on eBay, the MB being the army jeep of World War Two. I’ve sold a good number of clocks, some mouse pads and a few watches. Enough sales to prompt me to expand the army jeep line.

I’ve just finished designing new Willys M38 Jeep items to add to the eBay store. The M38 was the jeep in action during the Korean War and elsewhere in the early 1950s. If you’re not familiar with army jeeps you may not see the differences between the MB and the M38, but the true jeep fans can identify the two models with just a quick glance.

New at my eBay store, All-4-Corners, are the Willys M38 Jeep Wall clock, the Willys M38 Jeep Wristwatch, and the Willys M38 Jeep Mouse Pad.
