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.

Willys Colombia

• CATEGORIES: International, Website

Sebastian forwarded me the Willys Colombia website.  I realized I couldn’t find it because I was spelling Colombia wrong (my spelling:  Columbia).  I have now corrected all the other posts as well.  Ooops.

Anyway, there’s lots of great pics.  One section includes the official Guinness Book of Records Photos from the parade are there too.  However, one thing I haven’t determined is exactly how many jeeps were there.  I have seen the figures of approximately 300 jeeps and of approximately 370.  I tried to search Guinness, but had no luck.  Here’s a few of the pics.

Builds: Boomer’s 1942 Slat Grille

• CATEGORIES: Builds, MB • TAGS: .

If  you weren’t following it, Boomer, James and I were have a short conversation about Slat Grilles and how there are only a few Slat Grilles buit with a Glove Box.  Apparently, early MBs (1941 dated slat grill) did not come with a glove box (maybe I was the only person who didn’t know that …). Glove boxes were not added till ser# 120680 (early to mid Feb. 1942).  It made realize how little I actually know about Slat Grilles beyond the slat grille itself.

Boomer mentioned that he has a MB with the serial# 122723 born  February 26, 1942.   Glove boxes were added about a week before his was built.  Of course, at that point I said ‘tell me more & send me pics’!  Thanks for sharing!

Boomer not only sent some pics, but provided some nice history.  My slat came from the original owner, who bought it 1946. It was originally bought from an Army Air station in Maine.

Total slat grill production was approximately 25,000 units or  approximately 3  percent of total WW2 jeep production. Of those, only about 10 to 15 percent were equipped with a glove box. My research suggest there are barely 150 running/restored slat grills left in existance world wide.


Regarding the trailer, it was saved by me from a local farm. It was being used as a horse trough. Date of delivery was June 1943.  It was made by Willys, otherwise known as MBT.

This is how I found it;

The “Jeep Coat” aka The Mackinaw Jacket

• CATEGORIES: Features

While doing some research, I wandered through Vintagetrends.com and happened upon a “jeep coat”. Having never heard of one of these, I did a quick search and landed on the olive-drab.com site.  The Olive-drab reports “the heavy ‘Coat, Mackinaw, OD’ was issued initially in 1938, intended for cold weather use by troops who did not engage in much movement, such as drivers.”  You can learn more about the different versions of coat at the olive drab website.

The coat at Vintagetrends.com is for sale, priced at $135.  The description of the coat, issued in 1944, is as follows:  This is final pattern Mackinaw field jacket commonly called a jeep coat. Jacket is in overall used condition and is stained to back and front, sleeves. Lightly frayed at cuffs, but there is no overall holes are damages. Perfect for the reinactor. All buttons present to front. We could not locate spec tag, but size tag states size 38 to collar.

Dennis’ Hand Crank Heater 796-A by Stewart Warner

UPDATE:  Dennis has added a picture of the original Heater Hose

Dennis reports this is a picture of his “heater muffler flex hose (looks the same as in ad).  The handle is from an old gas can and a tea kettle.  The holders are from Satellite dishes from the dump (I also salvage the stainless steel nuts and bolts). ”  Now, that’s some creativity!
