Ebro Trucks from a Jeep Pickups website

• CATEGORIES: Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, International, Unusual

Here’s some a couple great pics of an early Ebro Cameador.  You can view more images at http://www.angelfire.com/nb2/jeeppickups/Ebro.html.

Jeeps first started being assembled in Spain in 1952 by a company called VIASA, which means Vehículos Industriales y Agrícolas, S.A in spanish. I am not sure if VIASA ever made pickups, as I cannot find any records of them being produced. However, in the late 1970’s VIASA was absorbed into EBRO, another spanish company. The only pickup that I know of produced by EBRO was called the Campeador. It was a forward control pickup available in either single or double cab version, which was called the Duplex, as well as a van, called the Toledo/Furgon. At some time, Hotchkiss in France also produced these vehicles, but I can’t find any pictures of them. Production of these vehicles was from 1971-1985 in France.  The Ebro name was discontinued in 1980.

1952 CJ-3A Pendleton, KY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1300

It looks rough. Apparently, the previous owner lacked some mechanical skills …

“i have a 1952 cj3 a willys jeep for sale or trade. over all the jeep for its year its in good shape but if someone was wanting to restore to original it would take a lot but something to look cool and just a fun toy to drive and work on this is a great project. right now it does run and drive and all the doors, windows and snow plow and heat works and it has a koigin metal works hard top on it that is in great shape. the things that are wrong with it is someone put a ford 170 straight six in it and to make it fit they had to cut up the floor board and fire wall a little and they did a horrible job patching it back together but it does keep the air out for the most part. they used an advanced adapters kit to put the ford in it so about and ford with the right bellhousing will bolt up to the transmission and it is the original transmission and tranfercase. the brake master cylinder leak a little and the only other thing i can really think of that is wrong with it is the front end. i was playing around in it and i broke the front spider gears so the front axle doesnt pull but the transfercase works and everything…..”

1949 CJ-2A Cranberry Township, Pa eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

The serial number of 154827 suggests this is actually a 1948 not a 1949. There’s been a great deal of work and money spent on this judging from the chrome and clean lines.

Has premium tailgate with Willy’s logo and shell has a glove box. There is no body filler on this vehicle.  Paint is acrylic enamel with hardener and gloss additive, wet sanded and buffed. The color is General Motors Fleet White. Paint brand was DelStar…. Any further questions you can contact me, Mario, on my cell phone at: 412.292.6152 or email to: MarWilys@nauticom.net.”

I believe this has a MB Grille and windshield, but the other parts appear to be CJ-2A.

“I have a ’46 Jeep Willys MB. Everything is stock. Its been my project for quite some time. Its 4×4, flathead 4 cylinder manual 3 speed. I have done a lot of engine work. Replaced the spark plugs, spark plug wires, starter, alternator, regulator, front brakes, water pump, hoses, belts, etc.. It still needs work but the engine turns over and runs. It has a non op and i have the pink in hand. The body is straight but it needs a little bondo and paint. This is a true classic off road vehicle. I’m looking to see what else is out there for trades. I’d be interested in an older stepside or other 4×4. either project or running. If interested contact jamesw.bridges@yahoo.com”

My Build: More Progress on the Cage

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

The cage is starting to take shape.  It’s only tacked together at the moment and the ‘spreader bars’ between the front and back loop are still PVC.  The lower of the spreader bars isn’t at the correct angle either, but the real bar should be in by tomorrow.

1946_cj2a_chesterfieldUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4300.

The owner is selling it to buy an engagement ring.

“I have a 1946 Willys overland mb jeep. This is the military wrangler. This particular one is the first year of production of these vehicles for the publice while still implementing parts used on the military model. It is appx. 90% original with the updated 12 volt system. Tires that are less than 3 months old. There is no rust any where, and everything works. It is a perfect vehicle for driving on nice summer days, or if you have a place you can take it through the woods, you will never get stuck. It has the famous 4 cyl original Flathead motor that runs great. The suspensions and all other mechanical systems are in great shape. The 4 wheel drive will never let you down. I am only selling it to pay for an engagement ring and hopefully a wedding if everything goes to plan. I am looking to get 4300 out of it. I have spent so much time and money, but now I really need to sell.  Email the post if you are interested. Or call 586 850 0853 This is a link to a youtube video I have made going around the jeep and the attached pictures should show anything you would want to see. If you come out you will not be disappointed.”
