Race Jeep Yelm, Wa $1200

• CATEGORIES: Racing

UPDATE:  The price is now $1200

This is a jeep designed for PNW4WDA racing.  This jeep has Formula desert dogs on the rear, but I can’t tell what tires are on the front.  The front shackles are reversed.  The front clip is all one piece (likely fiberglass).  It looks like the body is just a partial metal shell.  This jeep should also have a scattershield bellhousing (a requirement for racing).  This also appears to have chrome tie rods and a chrome front housing cover.  I wouldn’t be surprised if the rear was either locked or welded, perhaps the front as well.  This is actually a pretty good price if you want to get started racing in the PNW.

“Race Jeep. Buick V-6. T-14 Tranny. Spicer 18 44 Rear 27 Front. Needs some work. Runs and drives. $1200.00 OBO. Contact Kris @ (253) 219-2208.”

My Build — The hood vs. the air cleaner

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit, Features

One of the issue’s I’ve put off until now has been the air cleaner.  I knew fitting an air cleaner between the hood and carb would be tight, a consequence of the tall Kenne Bell intake manifold.  However, I thought I might sneak it in there, but after finally fitting the hood onto the front clip, I discovered that even a low profile air cleaner won’t fit.  Unfortunately, the engine can’t drop much more (not that I want to drop and reweld the engine mounts for an extra 1 1/2 inches).  The only solution left (that I could think of) was to put a bump into the hood.  I REALLY didn’t want to do it.  But, I need to keep moving forward on this project, so I decided it was the most expedient solution.

Once decided, I then had to decide the type of bump.  After mulling it over, I chose to do a simple bump that follows the lines of the hood.  The first step was cutting the hole in the hood.  Next, I created a form out of a 2×4, putting a 20 degree edge, the same degree, but opposite, of the angle of the stripe on the body.  I laid two coats of fiberglass and resin and let it setup.  The good news is that the results are even and the angles correct.  The bad news is that I’m not thrilled with the results.  I’ve thought about adding some angles to the front to make the bump more interesting, but I think I’ll keep it simple and save the details for version 2 of the hood.

Here’s the hood precut

Here’s the hood with 3 sides cut.  I used a cutting wheel to do the cuts and a flat piece of steel as a guide to create a straight line.

This jeep is located on the Oregon/Cali border near highway 101, so the drive alone is worth getting the jeep.  This doesn't look in too bad of shape.  The seller describes the body as fair to poor, but I've seen many worse bodies than this one.

1953 CJ-3B Durango, Co **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

UPDATE: SOLD, but not picked up yet …

I think there is lots of life left in this CJ-3B, as much of it looks straight and in good condition. However, I would like a closer look at the front bumper area, as that bumper angles a little bit too much.

“I’m selling this 1953 Willys Jeep CJ3B for a friend and neighbor of mine. He’s drove it for as is for a long time. In December last year he pulled the stock T90 transmission to rebuild it as it sometimes popped out of third gear when accelerating. A huge storm hit, dumping so much snow it crushed his garage barely missing the Jeep. Would be a very good, inexpensive project for the right person. I will try to be as detailed and candid as possible but feel free to ask questions and I will answer as quickly as I can. Has a 289 Ford small block under the hood, add a battery, antifreeze and its a runner again. Has been converted to Saginaw steering, with column, box etc. steers easy. Stock running gear behind the engine, T90, spicer 18, stock axles etc. Still has good brakes, has only been sitting since Christmas rather than years in a back field like so many out there…”

My Build — Hood version 1

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit, Features

Over the past week I completed the form for the hood, applying a second coat of drywall mud to smooth the curves.  I had to create the hood because I lengthened the front clip about 4.5 inches.  Following that, I rubbed some turtle wax onto the form as a release agent.  Then, I laid 3 layers of fiberglass & resin.  Finally, I laid the hat channel I pulled from a different hood I had (which will serve two purposes — to hold the curve of the hood and provide support for the hinge).

As you can see below, the turtle wax didn't completely release well, so there will be some sanding.  Also, rather than apply the gelcoat to the surface of the form (which I figured would not release well at all), I have decided to apply it once I finish sand the hood.  Finally, I have done an initial trim on the hood and it fits well, but not perfect.   It will take some additional trimming, patching and sanding to finish this, but it should do fine for a first hood (much better than the first hood on my first jeep).

1951 CJ-3A Oceanside, Ca eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, GPW (Ford MB), MB

The seller states $12000 was spent on the restoration of this CJ-3A and that it will now go easily down Cali highways at 80mph. My response would be, for starters, how does the hood stay down at 80mph, because there is only a hood latch on the passenger side fender (none on driver side) and no latch receptacles on the hood.  There's no mention of the MB body on this CJ-3A. The rear lights are missing on the driver's side.  Rather than a CJ-3A, the grille appears to be a slat grille in the front (probably the most valuable part of this jeep).  Caveat Emptor.

"4 wheel disk brakes, rancho suspension, 10,000 lb warn winch, power steering, power brakes, newer Ford 250 6 cylinder motor, new tires, new wheels, ground up restoration, new interior.  This old jeep has been lovingly professionally restored to better than new condition.  I had power disk brakes, power steering, Ford 250 motor, and rancho suspension added recently.  I also had the interior completely redone for $2200 with commercial grade heavy duty vinyl and super heavy duty rubber on the floors.  I also had the jeep painted with a $5500 base coat clear coat paint job which looks fantastic.  There's over $12,000 in restoration and now I've decided to sell it…."
