Amazing Video from VJ Day in Hawaii

• CATEGORIES: videos

Thanks to Randy for forwarding this  amazing footage from a color 16mm camera that captures Waikiki on VJ Day.  Look at the number of people standing on vehicles — they are nuts!  Also, check out the yellow Shore Patrol Jeep.  I hadn’t seen a yellow one before.

1948 Wagon Rhode Island **SOLD**

This looks like a very nice wagon, but the hood doesn’t look like it quite fits right in the front (or maybe it’s an optical illusion).

1962 CJ-3B Saint Joseph, Mo eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: .

This is pretty rough, but is a no reserve auction.

“1962 Willy Jeep for restoration. I believe it is a CJ3B flat finder, high hood. It has a clear title and ran before it was put in storage. The transmision and four wheel drive were all working how ever the motor is now stuck. Body has rust and a few holes but the mount and frame are good. The floor board has only a few small holes but the bottom of the bed is gone. The top is good and it has doors as well. Most of the glass is bad or gone. I put lub in the cyclinders and I’m sure you can get the motor to run.There is no reserve and must be paid for at end of sale and pick up with in 30 days Thanks.”

1964 M-677 Columbia, MO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Was on eBay. **SOLD**

“Very rare (less than 400 believed to ever have been produced, and only a handful raimaining).  Kaiser built these for the military based on the Forward Control Willys platform and powered by a Cerlist diesel engine.  The engine, transmission, and transfercase are missing from this rare survivor.  Survivor may be a strong word considering how beat up this example is.  Nearly very door and body panel is beat up in some fashion.  The irony is that this is a relativley rust-free example of a Forward Control Jeep.  The floors and structural body componenets are solid and strong.

This truck comes with a solid and straight civilian cab and doors that can be used to rebuild this ultra-rare crewcab body.  It has the military bumpers and grill guard.  The military garages are gone.  I have a civilian dash to go with it. It is missing the rear seat, and has no glass.

1959 FC-170 Columbia, MO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Was on eBay. **SOLD**

“I bought this truck because of the rare 4-speed T98 transmission, and intended to use it as parts for my M677 Crew Cab (listed separately).  I decided to go ahead and list this FC170 separately, but I would also work with anyone interested in both trucks.

This truck starts and runs great.  The brakes are currently down from sitting.  I bought it a year ago.  The preivous owner told me he drove it regularly over the last15 yeas around his farm in Arkansas.

The four speed transmission and shifting mechanis is complete, as is the Ramsey PTO-driven winch.  The seats have been recovered with gray vinyl.  There is some rust in the forward floors and around the inside of the windshield header.  It looks like rust from mouse nests on the interior side.  The exterior does not show rust through. It has relatively new Delta Super Deep Lug tires, size 7.50 x 16. I don’t have a title for this Jeep.  The previous owner was supposed to mail it to me.  I’ve heard from him since then, saying he would send it once the DMV processed some paper work, but it has not yet arrived in my mailbox.”

1946 CJ-2A Perris, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500

This has got some good parts — a nice rims, wheels, and a cage. The gas tank inlet is a little odd.  I’m not sure how/why that was changed. There’s no drain hole either.  Maybe this is a fiberglass body?

1946 CJ-2A Doddridge, AR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was  on eBay.

This looks like a solid vehicle, but still needs to be reassembled.

“1946 Jeep Willy’s CJ2A. This Jeep and its parts are sold in as is condition. The engine was running perfect when I took it apart to put all new gaskets, main seals, cap, rotor, plugs, wires and more. The transmission went out and that is why I started taking things apart. The new transmission has been installed. The old one leaked and wouldn’t shift. the new one has all new seals and shift through all the gears.  The Jeep also comes with the alternator, starter, carburetor and more. I just don’t have the time for the little jeep anymore and have too many other toys that work. The fenders need new bolts to hold them on. The rear left tire goes flat but the rest hold air no problem. There is very minimal rust on the Jeep. It has been in Arkansas for just under 2 years and has spent the rest of its life in the hills of Yosemite Calif. The time if you have it to put it together will make this a great putt putt for the road or ranch.”

Just a few updates tonight

• CATEGORIES: News

There weren’t a lot of updates on Craigslists this evening.  I have several reports for tomorrow: 1) I readjusted my carb after having more problems; 2) I went jeeping today for about 4 hours and the carb worked great, though I ran into a problem with a geyser; and 3) I’ll be going out again tomorrow to see if I fixed today’s geyser issue.

Enjoy Memorial Day!

1953 M-170 Lakeview, OR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-170 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

(05/01/2010) I like this one.  However, the engine hasn’t been run in a while.  Also, rear drivelines generally don’t just bend, so i suspect the rear end might need a rebuilt.

“1954 Willys M170 Front Line Ambulance. Serial #10538. This was running when it was parked. I don’t know much about the Jeep other than what I was told by the Rancher I got it from. NO TITLE ranch jeep sence late 70s was parked in a barn after rearend went out. I towed it home with no problems. Rear driveline is bent, I do not hear any noise in rearend when it is puled with towbar. This jeep was at an airport when the rancher aquired it. Has the military radio, mike, and loud speker in the dash. see pictures. I have not done anything with it SOLD AS-IS NO WARRANTY. I can store for awhile but will be outside. CASH or BANK DRAFT ONLY!! ”

I’m gonna guess that this is a rare 1968 CJ-3B titled as a 1969, as I believe ’68 was the last production year.

1953 CJ-3B Rockville, MD **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This is a good looking CJ-3B. The seller provides a nicely detailed description.  The drain holes have been filled in.

“Here is a very nice 1953 Willys CJ-3B that is roadworthy.  I run errands in it frequently.  I have the title in my name so no drama there.  The Jeep is still mostly original with the Hurricane engine and T-90 transmission, both of which work great. The engine starts right up hot or cold, no smoke and is very smooth. I’ve had the Jeep for two years, and from what I’ve been told by the previous owner, the Jeep was totally refurbished 12 years ago. I have no reason to doubt that. The paint still has some shine but there are some surface rust spots. There is also rust on the drivers side support for the fender. Also some rust on a cross member under the tub near the rear wheel wells. Since I’m in the disclosing mode, the only gauges that are hooked up are the temperature gauge and the oil pressure gauge. The odometer works but the speedometer has a broken needle. The ampere meter and the gas gauge are not hooked up and will be good things for a “to do” list. The seats are not original and in pretty bad shape under the seat covers, but they look okay. The emergency brake cable needs to be replaced….”
