Jim writes, “I’m tired of not having anything out there anymore for Willys. For example, the only replacement seats you can get for an early Willys are either military or black vinyl.  How boring! There are no more bikini tops of any variety – everyone pretty much runs the same boring top.  Continue reading

1953 CJ-3B Plymouth, MN **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

1953_cj3b_plymouthUPDATE: Was $2995. **SOLD**

The seller lists this as a 1953 GB2.  I thought that was a mistake until I did a search and discovered that this probably means this jeep is part of the second round of serials numbers for CJ-3Bs.  In other words, it’s a pretty early CJ-3B.

“1953 Willys GB2. B style so room for new engine. 12 Volt System. Valve stuck in the original flat head. Tranny, lock outs, and diff good shape. Good wheels and tires. I don’t have time to rebuild. Great project. Licensed as collectable. $2,995 or BO.”

1953_cj3a_orangebeachHere’s another one of these Willys/Toyota hybrids.  It appears to have been a well executed transformation, though the front bumper is a little underwhelming.

“This auction is for my 1953 Willys Jeep built using my many years of experience owning and using lifted Jeeps as daily drivers.The very clean Willys Jeep body is mounted on a Suzuki Samurai frame. This was done to gain a light weight, fully boxed, straight and rust free frame.  I installed a Toyota 20R mated to a Toyota 4 speed transmission and 2 speed transfer case. These were bought with about 80,000 miles on them per the previous owner.The engine starts immediately and does not smoke. I upgraded to an electronic distributor and purchased a used MSD box (works great). I am also running a remanufactured Holley 32/36 carburetor.The transmission shifter has a lot of play but there are no issues with how it works (it does not  pop out of gear or make noises).  A new clutch was put in when the transmission was installed.”

Builds: Dan replaces the Hudson with a Saginaw

• CATEGORIES: Builds

Sometime back, Dan’s grandfather had replaced the stock CJ-5 steering with a Hudson steering mechanism.  However, the bell crank has seen better days, so Dan decided to upgrade to a manual saginaw.  Upgrading to the manual saginaw is rare these days (see various steering upgrade options here), so it’s a nice treat to have Dan document his work for us.  Thanks Dan!

Dan writes:

Here is the Jeep soon after I picked it up from my grandfathers old ranch. I had already started to disassemble it. It’s a 1955 CJ5 which he purchased in 1959. About ten years ago he told me that his best guess was that it had about 500,000 miles on it. It has seen a lot of abuse and he made many modifications to it. That’s a Hudson steering wheel and column.

cj5_1

As you can see in this close up, the frame is broken clean in half just in front of the divers side front wheel.

cj5_framecrack

The bellcrank where he relocated it. It was just about ready to literally fall off. All the welds were broken and only one bent bolt was holding it on.

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

Jim’s giving us an early look at the VEC CJ-2A he pulled out of Crawford, Colorado.  He’s planning on listing this on eBay very soon (unless he gets a good offer before then).  He’d really like it to go to someone who will give it a good restore.

He writes:  “I pulled this CJ-2A out of Crawford Colorado.  It has an early serial number, three on the tree, tool indents, 3 piece agri dash plate, early wire steering wheel, 6 volt, very little rust, runs great, motor is super quiet.  The serial number is 17614.”
