URLFAN — eWillys in the top 10% of websites?


Well, what do you know … URLFAN is currently ranking eWillys in the top 10% of all websites at #398129.  Given the demographic size of people interested in flat fender jeeps, that’s a pretty great ranking in my mind, even if I don’t think the ranking means anything.

Reader Builds: Phil shares some pics of his CJ-3A


I received an email from Phil last night with pics of this beautiful flattie attached.  The jeep is a 1952 CJ-3A with a 4.3l Chevy Vortex with a C4 Auto and Dana 20 with a Terra Low gear set.

It also has a 44 frt and a 9″ Rear with ARB’s.  I’m sure with that drive train he has all that he needs to explore the areas near his northwest home.

In the last two pics you’ll note the custom tranny/tc cross member.  Phil built this and has added a skid plate that extends from the engine back past the transfer case.  Thanks for sharing Phil!

Website: 1950 Bantam Trailer Idea Factory


As mentioned in the post above, I found Mike’s website related to the sale of his CJ-6 and trailer.  He documented both the updates he made to his jeep and updates done to the trailer.  He’s implemented a number of creative ideas to support the modern family’s use of a trailer.  I highly recommend browsing the website for ideas.

A second 1962 Willys CJ5 is also incuded, it is in pieces and was being used for parts, all parts are still with jeep. Great for someone looking for a restoration project.”

1942 MB Slat Grille Hathaway Pines, Ca eBay


The seller provides a very nice overview of the jeep.

“This is an extremely rare 1942 Slat Grill Jeep.  Depending on where you look, different sources indicate that between 25 and 300 of these Jeeps are known to exist today.

The number plate on this Jeep shows that it is number 113424 (the 1’s are punched as I’s-see photo).  This is the numbering for the Jeep, and does not indicate that 113,424 of these were made.  Rather, the first 25,000 Jeeps ever made were Slat Grills, and the vast majority have been destroyed.  I have had this Jeep for several years, and it has a clear California title.   There are no registration issues since it has been registered non-operational so that no back fees accumulated while I stored it.

From what I can know and can tell:
I bought the jeep with an F-head motor and replaced it with the correct L-Head motor, but the motor is an aftermarket Kaiser Motor rather than a Willys.   The motor which is in it is a Kaiser Supersonic, and since its rebuild 12 years ago, has been run for only a few hours.  Unfortunately, I no longer have the rebuild receipt but it was rebuilt professionally…..”
