1949 CJ-3A Denton, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5000

“1949 Willys CJ3A Jeep with a clear Texas title in hand. The body is in great condition with little rust. The toolbox is solid and not rusted through. This was to be a restoration but I don’t have the time to complete it and I’m wanting it to go to a good home to be completed. It is a runner and can be driven. It has a long list done to it already and parts waiting to be installed … All new parts were purchased through Walcks4wd.com and the motor was rebuilt on March 3rd 2010. It is a driver and is in good shape. The transmission is in good shape. The transfer case has some slop in one of the levers but works fine. It’s at the point of needing disassembly, cleaning, painting and reassembly. This is a great restoration project and requires very little in new parts to complete it. I am asking $5000 negotiable. I have much more than that in it already. This really is a good deal.”

1949 Jeepster Dana Point, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $14,000

(01/06/2010) “This is a rare 6 cylinder 1949 Willys Jeepster. The Jeepsters were constructed only from 1948 to 1950 and only made a limited number of the 6 cylinders starting in mid 1949. This particular car has been featured in an article in Open Road Magazine. The engine has recently been rebuilt and the rest of the car is almost fully restored. This car is a head turner. I can’t tell you the number of times someone has come up to me and asked what kind of a car this is and that they think it is one of the best looking cars on the road.”

1870 Census Statistical Atlas (& nothing to do with jeeps)

• CATEGORIES: News

If you like maps and history of the US, you’ll likely find this STATISTICAL ATLAS
OF THE NINTH CENSUS (1870)
fascinating.  Even better, all the maps are available in 300 dpi (a 256mb download)!  It’s fun, in map-geek way, to see what cities were listed and which were left out (Ex … Olympia Wa shown, Seattle Wa not)

Below are a couple map examples.  Click on the map to get a higher resolution version. The first map shows a mapping of the woodlands.  At least in the western half of the US, with which I’m most familiar, I think that’s a pretty accurate assessment of how the woodlands appear today (though the trees are likely newer and shorter).

And here’s a geographical map:

1953 Wagon Denver, Co **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $1000

This is part of an estate sale.  The price will be lowered in about 3 weeks.

“I am clearing out my dad’s estate and have for sale one ‘53 Willys Jeep Wagon. This is original. No engine changes or aftermarket changes. I mean original as in 6 volt and generator charger. Jeep has 81,050 miles, never really a daily driver. Used mainly for fishing, hunting and then snowplowing my dad’s neighbor’s driveways after my dad retired to the country. Not too much time spent on salted roads. Engine was rebuilt years ago by a professional mechanic (my dad). Machine work was done by Hatch Grinding. They milled the head and balanced the crankshaft to the rods and pistons. The F head engine runs well. The rust on tailgate is lower than I’ve seen on wagons of this age. Also has the original wood guides on the floor. Brakes don’t work right now. We have not been able to remove the master cylinder cap yet. We soaked it in WD 40 and will try again in a few days. Now for the minuses, which I feel are lower than you’ll find on other old wagons. The needs are right fender (bad dents), front bumper, grill needs to be chromed. Glass in some windows is bad. Has extra glass but could be just as bad. And, of course, as any project wagon needing restoring, a complete interior redo. Body is solid with low rust, just a couple of holes, with 1 pin hole under driver’s floor. Jeep comes with extra seats and wheels. A little work and you can drive this while you restore. I can provide 15 high resolution photos to serious inquiries. We must communicate by phone first. Starting this out at $1000. I have 3 months to sell and will lower price in about 3 weeks if not sold. Snow plow parts to be removed unless you want to buy a snow plow also”

Flat Fender Squirrel Feeder

• CATEGORIES: Features, Unusual

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay. Here’s one in the wild.

You don’t see these everyday.

“Up for auction is a really cute little single-seat, cedar squirrel feeder fashioned after a 1942 Willys Jeep used during WW II.  It’s fun to watch the squirrels sit in the driver’s seat and eat.  And the best thing about this Jeep is it runs on corn cobs, so you won’t go broke at the pump!   We have the one pictured outside our window and the squirrels just love it.

The feeder is loosely fashioned after a photo of a 1942 Willys my 11-year-old son and I came across.  We thought it would be fun to turn the photo into a feeder.  So, we drew it out, cut it out, and (after a few redesigns) had us one of the more unique squirrel feeders on EBay.  These feeders have quickly become one of our biggest sellers.”

Constabulary / Military Police Jeep Paint Schemes

• CATEGORIES: Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Old Images • TAGS: .

About a week ago I was looking through some images and noticed a couple jeeps with unusual paint jobs across the windshields.  It turns out these were jeeps associated with the Constabulary Force in Europe. (I believe these differ from the ‘white mice‘ MPs)

Here’s an excerpt about the Constabulary Force from the history of the 2nd Constabulary Regiment, “The District Constabularies were regarded as an interim force during the time USFET [United States Forces European Theater] was submitting plans for a more extensive organization.

The Theater plan of organization proposed a Zone Constabulary composed of three Brigade Headquarters at the German Land or state level, each to include an Air Reconnaissance Squadron and varying numbers of Cavalry Groups; twelve Constabulary Group Headquarters; forty-eight Squadrons with 192 mechanized recon troops, 48 tank companies, and 48 Headquarter and Service troops. The total strength was to approximate 38,000 troopers.

Paralleling the planning and development of the United States Constabulary from its origin to the operational date of July 1, 1946, was the Mobile Security Control of the U. S. occupied zone (as we have already stated) by the District Constabularies. The Second Cavalry Group was shortly joined by the Sixth and Fifteenth Cavalry Groups to accomplish this.”

Back to the paint schemes, here are several pics with the unusual paint schemes.  Unfortunately, I don’t have any color pics and the pics I do have aren’t great ones.

Walter Sanders snapped the 2nd and 3rd images as part of his work for Life Magazine.
