1947 CJ-2A Lake George, NY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1947_cj2a_lakegeorgeUPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

I got a couple problems with this jeep.  The seller claims the jeep has a “Frame Up Full Restoration”, however given the jeep has no engine or engine related parts, the use of the term full is pretty innaccurate.  Clearly, there’s been no restoration from the frame downward, as the U bolts are rusted, the shocks are greasy, etc.  Also, check out the roll cage; there isn’t even an attempt to place a plate underneath the fiberglass body to sandwich the body at the very least, let alone a proper attempt to tie the roll cage into the frame.  A stock buick 225 engine is rated at about 150 – 160 hp, not 175hp.  The paint job does look very nice and their appear to be a number of other new parts as well.  The opening bid price is $3995.

“Up for highest offer is a 1947 Willys Jeep painted 1965 Ford Poppy Red.  Original frame and Willys overland Drivetrain.Needs motor.   Frame up full restoration.  many aftermarket parts 5000.00 invested . Aftermarket HD fiberglass body and fenders .  many parts to much to list.

Jeep Collection for sale out of Colorado

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A, CJ-3B, CJ5, GPW (Ford MB), MB

willys_collectionUPDATE:  This was $85,000 for the whole collection. I have found some related craigslist ads.  See them below.

I’ve found a couple references to the sale of this collection.  Anyone know more? Based on the pic to the right, these don’t appear in great condition.  My guess is that this is over priced.

Here is a link to another reference at Hemmings, where I found the pic to the right.

Here’s a link to Hemmings that readsWILLYS: elderly WW II veteran has vintage Jeep collection, 40s-60s, both military and civilian, must sell, best offer.”

1946 CJ-2A Connecticut $6500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

1946_cj2a_ct1The $6500 is a buy it now price on eBay.  Apparently the Seller has 2 other offers made via eBay as well.  This appears to be on the boarder between a VEC and an EC CJ-2A.  The seller is only the 2nd owner.  Too bad a floor shifter was swapped into it.  It looks quite nice.

“Here is an original 46 willys cj2a that I bought 7 years ago off the original owener who purchased the jeep new in 1946 and used it on his farm in Easton CT.  The jeep is still in running condition after all those years and only has 27000 miles.  the way you see it is pretty much the way I bought it,  I replaced the fuel pump, plugs , and plug wires.  The jeep starts right up and will even start with the original hand crank!  The motor at times has a skip to it, so it may need the carb rebuilt eventually but does not smoke or knock. The jeep drives great and will do almost 50mph it handles good and does not shimmy at any speed.  It is really fun speed around back roads in this little jeep! At some point it was converted from column shift to floor shift, it is still 6 volt and has its original wiring harness….”

Flat Fender Frenzy in Southern Ohio (other updates not til later)

• CATEGORIES: News

I’ll be busy tonight until late tonight, so expect updates later than usual.  In the meantime, John forwarded me this link about the Flat Fender Frenzy from the Mightymo.org website. I’ve pointed readers to the mightymo website in other posts, but I guess I hadn’t explored the entire website.

As I understand it, Flat Fender Frenzy is a weekend event that occurs near the end of August in southern Ohio.  It looks like a fun little get together with some camping, jeeping and relaxing. Sounds like a perfect weekend to me.  You can view a variety of pics from the last few years here.

Dune Buggies

• CATEGORIES: VEEP (VW Jeep), Scamp, Others, Website

dunebuggyGrowing up, I had a friend Tim who was my age and lived across the street. Hi father’s name was Bud and he was a machinist for Boeing.  Bud had a magical lathe and valuable skills that created a few of the valuable pieces I needed for putting together my first jeep. Bud also told me one day, near the end of building that first jeep, how he was talking to my Dad and how proud Dad was that I had built the jeep.  Of course, when Bud told me this, I just stared back, as Dad only told me what I was doing wrong … aahh, father and sons.

Anyway, one of Bud’s projects was a beautiful red, sparkly Dune Buggy he built (not the one to the right, but similar).  It was pretty much just a road machine toy.  For those who knew the Renton, Washington, area back in the 70s, Bud would drive his dune buggy down to the middle of the out door retail mall downtown (the one anchored by Sears on one end and QFC on the other) and park it in the middle of the mall (no there were no parking spots there), because he could do it and people loved to check out his Dune Buggy.

One day I was trying to find the body style (it was a flat fenderish hybrid buggy) and I ran across this amazing website called the dunebuggyarchives.com.  It includes a BODY ID Section that is very useful; there are SO many different buggy designs that the person managing this website built a database to help people navigate all the different kinds of buggys.  It also includes a history section that’s interesting.

Of course, there was even the flat fender dune buggy based on the M-38 and I have featured some of them for sale on ewillys.

Has an offroad title. Could be made highway legal, but would take some work. Battery, headlights, “KC” type lights, spotlight plug ins, and cigarette plug ins all work fine. No tail lights.

Builds — John’s 1951 CJ-3A named Brownie

• CATEGORIES: Builds

brownie_1951_cj3aJohn has done me a great favor by creating a windshield vent bracket for me, which I will highlight in a subsequent post. THANKS JOHN!  Btw, check out the last picture;  John might just win the award for best use of an old Willys hood.

Here’s what John has to say about his CJ-3A:

“This Willys came from Tenn. where it was bought & used at a const. co. with a trencher on it. I found it at Crawford’s Bargain Barn just north of Springfield Oh. They had used it to pull a hayride wagon. The Odometer had 6854 mi. on it & it was still working.  It was never titled or run on the road. The Body is original, though I did put new hat channels & a rear floor pan in. This poor thing was beat at all 4 corners & everywhere inbetween.  I’m not a body man, but I straighted & painted it.

I did a complete tear down, cleaning & painting everything individually. Most of the fasteners are brass bolts, nuts, & washers, except for stress points. I added 11” brakes and a warn O/D; Everything else is original. The engine, which has SPECIAL casted on it, was bored .40 over, chrome ringed, rotate balanced asm., has ported & polished intake & exhaust ports, and matched manifolds that are ported & polished. This thing runs smooooooth. I built this to be a daily driver;  My wife & I have put over 6000 mi. on it since July 5th, 2008. It took me 9 months to do the complete restoration. We put about 2000 mi on it before i tore it down. It came with a GPW eng. in it.  The serial # put the block in a 42 GPW.  I sold it to a fellow in Pa. that is restoring his 42 GPW.  It’s been named Brownie. It’s Black,Brass,& Brown.”

1946 CJ-2A Powell, Oh eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1946_cj2a_powellUPDATE:  This is back on eBay.  Very nice work!

This appears to be a well done restoration, though not restored to original specs.  In an earlier post, I mentioned the body was probably an aftermarket body, but I was wrong.  The seller indicates this is the original body.  If that’s the case, then the seller has some excellent work on this CJ. Apparently, this about the 15th CJ the seller has built.  See the comments on the ebay ad for additional information about this CJ.

“1946 Restored Willys CJ2A. Jeep restored for daily driver with reliable GM 4 cylinder and 4 speed manual transmission.  12-volt electrical system with battery relocated between seats, brand new “best top” and doors, 6-point roll cage, transfer case and hubs rebuilt in restoration.  Fuel cell in rear cargo area (not under driver’s seat as originally built). Auto meter gauges. Frame is immaculate.  Body and paint exceptional, no rust whatsoever.”
