Builds: Jim’s brother’s Weekend Build

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Reader Stories, Website

Sometimes you have the luxury of 25 years to work on your M-38.  Other times, you only have the weekend.  Jim and his brothers show how much work can be done in only a weekend — and what a difference another body can make.

You can read all about this weekend adventure on Jim’s brother’s blog: By the Numbers.  It’s a funny bit of writing, including the addition of aliases to protect the innocent from thesungoddess perhaps? :-).  You can also catch Jim on his blog, Bus-Plunge (he’s got a cool bus & hat).  Finally, you can see all three brothers at the bottom of this list of Jeeps, courtesy of the jeepjunkie himself.

Here’s the before — a very cheaply purchased, rolling pile of rust:

brother_cj5_before

And an after shot — all the body parts changed in another low budget purchase of parts … all except for the driver’s side fender.  I’d say that’s a 1000 percent improvement. Not bad for a weekend.

The Tucker ‘Tiger’ Combat Car

• CATEGORIES: Unusual, videos

Ever since I saw the movie about Preston Tucker I always wanted to check out one of his cars in person (which I talk about here). Despite the fact I found one near my Sister’s house in Roy, Wa, I still haven’t gotten there yet! Btw, here’s the official Tucker Car Club Site.

Prior to building the Tucker cars, he lead the development of a Combat Car.  To my surprise, today I found a video of the Tucker Combat Car.  Designed for World War II, but never purchased by the Military (to the best of my knowledge), the film mentions and shows the car; strangely, I never really thought this was real until I saw it in this video.

Here is an original video press release (parts 1 & 2) that explains Tucker and his new car.

And, a video promo of the movie Tucker- The Man and His Dream

Bantam BRC-40 Columbus, Oh eBay

• CATEGORIES: Bantam-FordGP-WillysMA-EarlyJPs, Unusual

Thanks to Jim sending the link on this.  Obviously, this is a rare event.

“1941 Bantam Reconnaissance Car (BRC-40).  Restored – starts, run, drives great.  The vehicle was originally purchased  and restored by a pretty well known figure in the Bantam Auto Club circle sometime in the late 80’s/early 90’s.  I have a one page letter from this person detailing his efforts to obtain and restore the vehicle (which I will give to the buyer).   It passed through a few owners until my purchase in 2001.  Over the years I have upgraded/corrected various pieces and parts.  It comes with a few spare parts, manuals, and a top.

The vehicle is 99%+ complete and accurate.  The body tub is original – ie. not a reproduction like many others out there.  The items that I believe are incorrect (or missing) are:

The choke and throttle knobs are the not the early “bulls-eye” type – although I have what I believe to be one correct replacement.

The oil pan does not have a skid plate – although I have a correct, original oil pan with skid plate that needs to be cleaned up and attached.

The rear tool box lid locks are incorrect.

The reflectors are of the King-Bee type (as used on the FORD GP) and I believe should in fact be Triflex SR-71s.

When I purchased the vehicle, it had a reproduction windshield frame.  It was a pretty accurate copy, but a reproduction nonetheless.  I sold it to another BRC-40 owner and acquired an original frame a few years back.  It needs some work (arms straightened, etc and needs the latches to the cowl when in its upright position), but it’s in pretty nice condition.  In fact, it has most of its original paint.

The front bumper is an OK reproduction, but I acquired a much better replacement from Ken Hake which has the correct rivets and hand crank guide.

Lastly, in the spirit of full disclosure, I am not sure the front leaf springs are correct/original.  They may be correct, but again, I am not 100% sure. Lastly she needs a good bath – she has sat in my barn with my other vehicles for the past nine years and has collected a coating of dust and dirt.  It was near freezing when I took the photos – I put a new battery in her and she started right up.  Lastly, after sitting for nearly nine years, the brakes are a bit mushy.  I’ll see if I can rectify this prior to sale (no promises).”

1951 M-38 Larkspur, Co **SOLD**

“This one of a kind M38 is a must see. Hours have been spent creating this fun yet functional ride. This is a 1951 Willy’s M38 Flat Fender (Korean War Era) that has been fully restored to street driveable. Engine: V6 Buick 235ci (1977 Olds Starfire). Chrome Edelbrock valve covers,

I don’t see too much rust on this.  It might be a good price.

“Willys Wagon four wheel drive. All original, 67K miles, interior complete and in good shape, dash not chopped up, 226-6 flat head runs good, just changed oil and replaced fuel pump. 4WD , twin stick transfer case works good, lock outs work good. Body is in okay shape, has “Willys Rust” . Extra complete motor and misc. parts, service manual included. Good clear title. I bought it as a project earlier this year and started to work out the bugs. Got it running and driving pretty good just needs a little more TLC. Enthusiasts preferred, I want to see the Willys go to someone who can keep it alive.”

1947 Truck (4wd) Jamestown, RI **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  Well, Steve couldn’t stand the thought of someone not restoring this truck, so he bought it and has offered to provide updates to ewillys readers as he restores it.  Best of luck Steve!

A reader named Steve examined this Truck today.  It’s got a Dump O Matic Hydraulic Dump Bed. Steve felt this was more work than he was looking for, but thought it would be great ‘for the right Willys Addict’. Thanks Steve!

Steve reports, “This was the first year for the pickup with only 2,346 4WD models built. The bed has a fair amount of body rot, but could be repaired or replaced.  The cab is original and mostly complete.  It’s not dented or molested.  The engine is seized (but included to keep matching numbers) and the seat bottom and headliner are missing.  A replacement engine is included that came from a military generator that was religiously maintained and ran on propane.  The tires are dry rotted, but the frame looks good.”

Here’s the Craigslist AD:

“1947 Jeep pick-up. 4 wheel drive. Dump O Matic pick up bed. Truck is in fair condition for an unrestored truck of this age. This is a restoration project.There is rust but cab and floor are in good condition.Truck has 42000 miles. Last time on road was 1987. For more information call David at 401-465-9490”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Palos Verdes, Ca $10,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE:  This is now on Craigslist for $10,000. This was on eBay.

(11/04/2010) This is a fine looking CJ-2A with some polish that likely runs and drives well.  What puzzles me is why it lacks VEC and CJ-2A elements.  I would call it a frame off rebuild, but I couldn’t call it a frame off ‘restoration’ (I would expect a “Collector” to know the difference — perhaps the seller was mislead).

Sure, it has the tags, along with an ID of 25588, but, given the seller’s asking price of $14,500, it should also have a column shift, tool indents, the correct parking lights, the bow holders, original bumpers, body drain holes near the steps, the bow mounts at the rear corners and a few other things. Also, why paint it the correct color, yet not paint the wheels the correct Autumn Yellow?

“First of all please note my stellar feedback so you can bid with confidence. I expect the buyer to be the same. Out of my collection is this very original 1946 CJ-2A Willys with matching civilian 1946 TC-3B Bantam trailer. This Willys is a frame off restoration. It is refinished in the original and correct color of Harvest Green. It has the correct original running gear: 134-L Go Devil engine, T-90 trans and Dana 18 transfer case. This Willys would do well in any show and is turn key ready. Best of all, you can drive it anywhere.  The reserve is set MUCH less than comparable vehicles on the market and this INCLUDES the Bantam trailer. Odometer shows 47,290. I don’t know if this is actual or not. The following are all new or professionally rebuilt. Look at the pic’s…”
