1946 CJ-2A Urbana, IL eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

I doubt it will fetch the ‘buy it now price’ of $5400.  And, it has plenty of rust and dents that will require some work to remove, however there’s a lot to like about it.  Lots of pics on eBay.

“The current owner has owned this jeep for 25 years and it has 61,504 original miles. Fifteen years ago, the owner and his late wife took a road trip from Urbana, Illinois down to Cairo, Illinois and back up through Kentucky and Ohio. It ran perfectly the whole way. When the jeep was purchased in 1984 the title was in both the owner and his wife’s name and was re-issued in 1998 in his name only after his wife passed away…”

My Rebuild: Creating the Transmission Cover

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit, Features

Another of the projects I was putting off was the creation of a transmission cover. It’s really nice to be crossing these small projects off the project list. It’s not a thing of beauty, but it will do for now.

It turns out that the bad hood I had from one of the jeeps I purchased has been a great source of foldable, flat steel. So, I used a chunk of it to fold together a cover.

Before doing any cutting, I used some cardboard pieces to create a mockup. Here’s a look at most of the pieces in place (I actually had more, but removed them, then realized I hadn’t taken a pic, so I threw a few of them back on ..)

tranny_cover_mockup

Here’s a pic of the flat steel from the hood:

tranny_cover_beginning

Next, I drew some basic lines that I used as an outline for cutting and bending the piece. Then, I used a cutting wheel to create a rough cutout of what I wanted. Boy I wish I had had a cutting wheel for my first jeep! That little 4.5″ cutting wheel has been invaluable.

Once I did a rough cut, I made an initial bend (note the clean working space .. lol):

tranny_cover_cutting

Because of the odd and curved shapes, I cut a little, tested it, cut a little and tested it again. Once I was convinced it would work, I sanded it down and made some additional folds:

tranny_cover_bending

After testing it some more, I made the last fold and riveted it in place.

tranny_cover_almostdone

With it finished, I drilled the holes necessary to mount the rubber boot on top and to attach the cover to the body.

All that was left to do was to paint the piece with Herculiner to match the body floor. By this morning the paint was dry, so I installed the cover:

tranny_cover_final

And, from the other side:

tranny_final_cover2

Once I grab a rubber dual boot for the transfer case shifter (if any one has one of these, I’m open to a trade or cash!),  I’ll create a small piece to complete the cover.

My Build: Headlight Rebuild

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

One of the projects I have been putting off is the rebuild of my headlight containers.  The headlight directional adjustment pieces were made of plastic. Two of the four had already broken, so I knew I’d have to fix them eventually.

After pondering the situation, I chose to remove the existing directional adjusters off the CJ-3A headlight containters I had.  I really hate damaging these original pieces, however I also knew that the oldsmobile units I use are even harder to find.

Here’s what the original headlight adjusters looked like:

headlight_old_pieces

Here’s a closeup of the plastic piece (out of focus):

headlight_old_piece1

Here’s the ‘new’ piece that has been cut down so that it will fit (another beautiful pic .. not)

headlight_piece_new

Here are the pieces riveted onto the headlight container.  One more rivet to go.  You can see the old, (blurry) rivets just underneath the new pieces.  Once these were installed, I painted them and put everything back together.

1942 GPW Madera, Ca $5500

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: .

1942_gpw_maderaKind of a funky paint job, but it would probably clean up well.

“Rare 1942 Ford Jeep WWII. During WWII Willys-Overland Co. could not produce enough jeeps to meet the war demand, thus Ford starting producing jeeps in the exact image of the Willys model so that the parts were interchangeable. Sense limited production were produced these jeeps are a rare find. The jeep has been garaged and in our family for over 20 years. For those collectors out there this jeep can easily be restored to its original glory. I believe the seats and rollbar and rear bumpre are the only changes made. The jeeps body and engine are in great condition, I drove the jeep this past weekend around the farm. Please send me an email at katzjigs@yahoo.com or call 559-446-1071 and leave a message if you are interested and we can arrange a viewing.”

The gas tank has rust in it and clogs up fuel filters. Column shifter is broken at top of shift handle. I have been shifting with vice grips, transmission shifts good and appears to have had been rebuilt, dope looks brand new and case has been cleaned to bare metal. Seat frames are very solid and springs seem in very good shape, steering wheel has some cracks in it. The windshield glass is broken and the windshield frame is very solid but it has some rust spots, the hood hinge was broken and somebody put screws in it. Bowl for air filter is missing. A hole for a radio was cut into dash. The body tub only has two holes rusted through, one on the right side at the body support above the fender step and the left side at top of wheelwell underneath a roll bar that was in it…. ”
