Extended GPW — One of Jim’s old GPWs


Jim and I had a few email exchanges about the extended flatties.  After a little searching, he came up with these pics of a 1942 GPW that someone expanded and that Jim owned for a short time.  It appears the builder was going to extend the front, though that looks pretty scary!

More discussion on extended jeeps tomorrow or friday.

My Build — One of those days …


I went out today to start the jeep.  The battery was completely dead.  This is the first time I have had any problems with the battery.  Something drained the battery significantly.  The only change I have made was plugging in the head lights, so I will have to do some more investigation into this.

But, I don’t give up easy.  I wanted to run the engine, so I jumped the jeep and got it going.

I ran it half way around the block to help charge the battery.

Exactly half way around the block I ran out of gas.  I knew my gas guage sender needed to be adjusted, but I still thought I had a little more gas.

I coasted to a stop … alternatively laughing and cussing.

So, I went and got gas from my garage, got the truck, put in some gas, jumped it once more, ran it home and put it quickly to bed.  Tomorrow I go get a battery charger …. lol.

Builds – Gerald’s 1963 CJ-3B


Gerald recently purchased some tires.  They are Goodyear casings P 235 /75/15 with V-Grip Hot Cap retreads from Import Export Tire in Latrobe, PA.  This is a different seller than the Stone Tire Company I highlighted a few months ago.

Gerald writes, “The Rims are Appliance brand 13 spoke Manufactured by the W.R. Grace Co. in 1976, Max Wheel Load 1580 lbs.  Model 1058V5 15 x 8.5 wide.  The are 5 x 51/2 Bolt circe with a 3 1/2 inch offset.  Lug nuts are a special washer and nut deal.  Gorilla still makes them.”


Here’s a look at the casting

The Tires are Goodyear casings P 235 /75/15 with V-Grip Hot Cap retreads from Import Export Tire in Latrobe, PA. We always called the Mini Terra’s.


Here’s my 1963 3B Sporting the set-up.


We raced with these back in the 70’s and 80’s and finally found a place that would still do these.

“This jeep has been the family for over 50 years. The original 4 cylinder engine has 47,000 miles on it and runs great. It has the standard 3 speed manual transmission, transfer case with high and low range, 4 wheel drive, and lock out hubs. The soft top and tires are new. The 6 foot plow and a full size cover are included with the jeep. It has the original 6 volt system including lights, gauges, generator, and battery. I also added a 12 volt battery connected directly to the starter for easy starting even on the coldest winter days. This jeep has been well cared for and maintained over the years.”
