1944 MB Port Angeles, Wa eBay

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

1944_mb_portangelesThere’s been a variety of updates to this MB, including the rear bumper, the later model windshield, the radiator, the wiring and more.  I’d have to agree with the seller that this might make a good platform for a restoration project based on the pics.

“This is a 1944 Military Jeep delivered June 12, 1944. The original zinc dash plaques match the frame serial. The engine serial is 3J50087. I do not know for sure if it the original engine for certain. It has been converted to 12volt. I started working o this Jeep in 2003. Since then I have installed, rebuilt, or replaced the following.—Engine gaskets, timing gears, mounts, radiator, belt, hoses, coil, plugs, distributor, carberurator, and air duct. Brakes, changed to 11″x2″ duo-servo shoes, hoses, steel lines and switched to dual reservoir master cylinder. Locating it in the stock location with a kit from ATV, retaining the stock pedals. Front axle, wheel bearings, seals and nuts, spindle bushings, steering bearings and felt seals, inner and outer axle seals….”

1947 Empire Tractor (uses Willys drive train) Drexel, Mo $3500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features, Machinery, MB, Unusual • TAGS: , .

1947_empiretractor_drexelWell here’s something I didn’t know, submitted by a reader.  Empire Tractors were built from parts that are also used by Willys, such as the transfercase (spicer 18), transmission (t-90), differential (spicer 25) and more.  You can learn more about the specs for these tractors here.  Note that the seller claims these were built out of surplus WWII jeeps, however the t-90 was a CJ-2A tranny, so it seems more likely to me that they shared parts with the CJ-2A rather than built from the MB.

“HERE WE HAVE A RARE 1947 EMPIRE TRACTOR. MODEL 88-90 MADE IN 11-47 SERAIL NUMBER 6352 IT WAS RESTORED ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO AND HAS BEEN KEPT INSIDE ALL IT’S LIFE. THIS HAS WILLYS JEEP ENGINE AND TRANS,AND ALOT OF OTHER JEEP PARTS IN IT,THAT ARE ORGINAL TO THE TRACTOR. THESE TRACTORS WERE BUILT AFTER WWII OUT OF SURPLUS ARMY JEEPS. THE PAINT SHOWS SOME WEAR . THE TIRES ON BACK ARE ORGINAL AND FRONTS HAVE BEEN REPALCED. COMES WITH ORGINAL LIGHTS AND GENERATOR IN A BOX. IT HAS HAD ONLY 3 OWNERS AND RUNS AND DRIVES LIKE IT SHOULD, READY TO USE OR SHOW. THIS COMES WITH A BELLY SICKLE MOWER,THAT HAS NOT BEEN USED IN 20 YEARS. 3500 FIRM. MY NUMBER IS 660-267-3282 THANKS FOR LOOKING”

1948 Jeepster Jaffrey, NH eBay

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster

1948_jeepster_nhThis looks like it’s a great foundation for a good restore.

“Picked up this willys in southwest GA a year ago with great intentions…had been in a dry barn for 20+years..still has the dust on it to this day.. this was to be my next streetrod project, with the backlog of customer work in my shop I dont see how I will ever find the time to start a project for myself, let alone finish it…   If your looking for good sheetmetal for a hotrod or restoration project this is it. the rockers have been repaired improperly and should be replaced with new. other than that the body is nearly rust free. vehicle is fairly complete minus the top and mechanism.”

Happy New Year

• CATEGORIES: News

first_birthdayHappy New Year everyone (at least somewhere it’s the New Year).   New Year’s day marks the official one year anniversary of eWillys.

Over the past year I’ve met lots of new friends from all around the world, written about 1400 posts, nearly finished my own jeep, and only pissed off one reader (that I know of :-)).  I feel like I’ve successfully hit my goals this year: to create a website that follows the older jeep & jeep parts market so that I and others can better understand the market demographics — what’s for sale, how much they cost, and more.  Along the way, I’ve tried to make it interesting, amusing and educational.

Based on the feedback I’ve received, you all seem to be enjoying the site thus far.  My 14 year old son swears to me that one day he was walking down the street in downtown Salt Lake City and heard two guys talking about the eWillys website and how much they liked it, which he thought was pretty cool.

Over the next year, I hope to continue to deliver interesting information,  improve the site (especially those drop down menus which stick within firefox), and expand the content in new directions.

Finally, I really really appreciate all the readers who have provided endless helpful feedback, suggestions and information.  I try to keep this site updated on 24/7 basis as best as possible and sometimes I make mistakes in the process, so always feel free to drop me a line, and I’ll respond as quickly as possible.

Have a wonderful 2009 everyone!

– Dave
