It’s a project & it RUNS!

“1962 Willys Jeep CJ6 Runs.  Decent tires.  Do not know the actual mileage and on the title the odometer section is left blank. Obviously needs some work.  This is not at my home so I would have to travel to view the jeep.  Instead I have tried to take many pictures and hope that gives the information that you need.  However, if it doesn’t please contact me and I will try to answer your questions. I do have clear title. If you or a mechanic would like to look at it please let me know so we can make that arrangement.”

Builds: Leapin’ Lena & a Cab for sale

• CATEGORIES: Builds, CJ-2A

UPDATE:  Kaweh says he’s asking $380/obo for the Cab, which includes a windshield, good glass, wipers, parts, etc.  It’s all there.  If you are interested, you can email him at ketminan-rad@jccscpa.com.

Recently, Kaweh used eWillys to find this 1951 CJ-3A in Osbourn, Idaho.  The owner named the jeep Leapin Lena.  She owned the jeep for 50 years and made Kaweh promise that he wouldn’t change the jeep’s name.

The jeep came with a top that Kaweh doesn’t want. He’s included some pics below.  He hasn’t determined a price yet, so if you are interested, drop a comment below and I’ll make sure he gets your information.

In addition, Kaweh is looking for a CJ-2A windshield.  If you have one and aren’t too far away from Missoula, drop a comment below.  Thanks!

DSC02549

About the top, Kaweh writes “The window on the driver side (not the driver door but the window in the cab itself) is cracked. Otherwise the cab is in great shape just needs some TLC and paint.”  Kaweh and the top are located in Montana. The windshield that is currently on the Jeep is part of the cab (you can see how upright it is installed).  The doors are in really good shape; even the insulation is still there.

A Jeep from the Phillipines

• CATEGORIES: Reader Stories

Dexter wrote me recently about how a 2003 experience made him want to purchase an old military jeep.  The jeep shown below was one Dexter happened across in the Phillipines and is an interesting mix of different jeep parts.

“My name is Dexter Abellera, and I’m emailing your from Lodi, CA, about 30 minutes south of Sacramento. I came across your eWillys site, and I must say, I’ve been on it everyday for the past week!

I’m 33 years old. I was born in the Philippines, and migrated to Cali when I was 9. My dad was a Captain in the Philippine military back in the 70s and 80s, and I remember him driving us around in a Government-Issued Toyota Mini Landcruiser. Sure it wasn’t a real Jeep, but I just fell in loved with the open-top, go-anywhere driving.

When I was 18, I bought a new 1995 Jeep Wrangler. Loved it. Unfortunately, I was forced to sell it back in 2005 because my wife and I needed down payment to buy a home. I miss that damn thing a lot!

In 2003, I went on vacation in the Philippines–first time in years. My grandpa passed away four months later, and my dad finally told me some war stories of how my grandpa was one of the soldiers that walked the infamous Bataan Death March back in WWII. He also served time during the Korean War.

During my vacation, I came across this vintage WWII Willys [pics below] along the side of the road in Manila. I’m sure you better than anyone can tell what is original and what isn’t. Anyway, seeing the Jeep lit a fire within me to buy an old MB, GPW or M-38A1 . . . I guess in way to remember my grandpa as well my country’s involvement in the war. Who knows, he probably rode in one of these! 🙂

That’s me on the driver’s seat. 🙂 The owner is the old man with the green top.”

Kill the Bastards … Here’s an Interesting WWII Pic

• CATEGORIES: War Images

Bruce provided me a copy of this pic.  That’s a pretty intimidating sign.

The sign reads:

KILL THE BASTARDS!
Down this road marched one of the regiments of the united states army
Knights serving the Queen of battles
Twenty of their wounded in litters were bayoneted, shot and clubbed by the yellow bellies
KILL THE BASTARDS!

Note the bottom blue tub.  It has the custom dash that I’ve seen on 5 or 6 or jeeps from California.  Also, it appears that it doesn’t have a driver’s side gas inlet as a part of the original design.  Anyone know anything about these bodies?

“I have 2 1940’s willy’s tubs the one in the photo the grey one on top has fenders hood tub and windshield frame – needs grill and tailgate and the blue one on the bottum is just a tub I am willing to sell them together or apart please call.”

1959 CJ-5 Bethel, NY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ5

UPDATE: Was $2450. **SOLD**

This might make an interesting rebuild, assuming the body isn’t too bad.

“We have here a good running solid 50 year old Willys Jeep. Original miles 20,000 was used on farm and stored inside until I bought it 12 years ago. I have never put plates on it and only used it to plow my own driveway. I have had it stored out side the whole 12 years but never on the road in salt. I am selling due to knee surgury and unable to work the clutch in the small cab thus I had to get a full size truck to plow with. This 4 cyl Jeep plowed better that the full size truck with the V-8 engine. Would like to see this go to a new home and be restored – the old truck deserves restoration – or just to go ahead and plow for another 50 years.”

Jeep Clubs in Pakistan

• CATEGORIES: International, Website

Right in the middle of drafting a post about DJ-3As vs Galas vs Surreys, the internet managed, once again, to derail my efforts.  In the middle of doing a picture search,  I stumbled upon the Islamabad Jeep Club.  Hmm .. that’s in Pakistan … could that really be a jeep club?   Not only is it a jeep club, it is one of the three clubs from Pakistan on the internet with sites published entirely in English.

I admit, this is something I didn’t expect.  I admit, despite my attempts not to preconceive, my entire conception of Pakistan is desert, Camels and a mirror of Afghanistan — a montage of movies and news footage.  That was my view of Pakistan.

Here’s a video from 2008:
httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mt6hwbkmG0

Now I’ve learned there’s more. So, for your educational pleasure, below are snapshots from each of the three websites I found in Pakistan and a pic of the wide range of 4wd vehicles that attend the Islamabad Jeep Club events.  You’ll see a wide mix of old flatties, new 4wd vehicles, and everything in between. Finally, while checking out the Offroad Pakistan websites, I ran across a wonderful post about the rebuilding of a Ford F1 from California, which I cover in the post below this one.

A Ford F1 — From California to Karachi, Pakistan

• CATEGORIES: Unusual

As I note in the above post, I was checking out the 4×4 Offroaders of Karachi when I found this gem of a story.  It’s a beautiful rebuild.   I’d sure like to know why the builders wife wanted an F1;  a rather strange request!  Here is an excerpt:

Soon after we got married, my wife Sabiha asked me to get a Ford F1 truck for her. I tried my best but could not find any in Pakistan. Some thirty years later, on one of her visits to America, she found one in a small town called Dry Town near Sacramento, California. She convinced the owner to sell it to her and I think she got it for $140 (exact amount she has not told me – only that it cost more to have it towed to our friend Javed Akber’s house in Sacramento). Till we could figure out how to have it shipped to Karachi, for over a year the Ford truck remained parked in Javed’s garage (while their own two cars remained out in the open).”  Read more …

Builds: Josh’s WW2 US Navy Converto T6 Trailer

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features, trailer

Josh sent over some pics of a very rare WW2 US Navy Converto T6 Trailer.  Josh is curious to know if any other readers have or know of these trailers.  I’ll be happy to set aside some space for Converto trailer owners to gather and share information.

Also, he’s got another trailer for sale on eBay (Converto Airborne Dump Trailer — see post below this one).

Josh writes, “Here are some pictures of my WW2 US Navy Converto T6 trailer I mentioned to you a while back. I found it here in Boise, though it was never advertised for sale. It is almost identical to a more well known Bantam t3 or a Willys MBT.  During the war there were a number of companies producing nearly identical trailers for the military.  The only notable difference between my MBT or T3  and the Converto T6 are a different brake hand set up, dataplate, and, in the case of my trailer, a ball hitch that is stamped USN 1944. (My hitch is different from the two other Converto T6s I’ve heard about — They both have the standard military lunettes)   The data plate was originally riveted to my trailer but the past owner removed it to paint it grey again with spray paint. The under side of my trailer has what I believe to be the original paint and some yellow stenciling that has shipping info/load info. I plan to fully restore and hold onto this T6.

Converto also produced a T7 (same 1/4 ton trailer as the MBT/T3/T6 but with a tailgate) and a Converto Airborne Dump Trailer which is a 1/2 ton but used with the jeep. There is really little info I can find out on either the T6 orT7, but the Dump trailers do have a lot of info available including a military TM.  I have had a few Converto Airborne Dump Trailers.  They are very hard to find as it is estimated only about 6500 where produced. I’m unsure how many T6/T7 were produced. Not very many based on how few are still around. Maybe we can find a few more with your readers??”
