The Olson’s Ice Racing Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Racing • TAGS: .

I ran across JP Magazine’s feature about the Olson’s ice racing jeep “Black Ice” today.  There are a variety of interesting and unusual ideas implemented in this custom rig that could probably be used for road, trail and off-road racing applications.  It’s a fun Jeep to check out.

Learn much more about this vehicle at JP Magazine and view many more pictures there, too.  Here are a couple images:

Montana Overland — Home of the Jeep Ranch


To my surprise, while browsing the internet I ran across a Jeep Salvage yard in Montana today.  Montana Overland sits on 20 acres in Plains, Montana, a town which, ironically, does not appear to be on the plains of Montana, but, instead, is nestled within the mountains.  Montana Overland specializes in “hard-to-find parts for your Jeep Willys wagons and pickups from 1946 through 1988“.  So, if you are looking for wagon or pickup parts, you might try them.

They also have a variety of vehicles for sale and  have an inventory of parts.

For example, here is a FC-170 flatbed for $1200, though it appears they may accept a lower offer.

1959 FC-170 Chelan, WA **SOLD**

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


(06/05/2009) “My Father is ready to sell his Eastern Washington 1959 FC-170 Jeep located in Chelan, WA. Introduced in 1957, FC-170 models had a 103 inches (2,616 mm) wheelbase with a 108 in (2,743.2 mm) bed. This model is significant as it was the first time the length of the payload box – 9 feet (2.7 m) with the tailgate up – exceeded the wheelbase of a truck. This was achieved by the forward cabin layout.  The Jeep starts right up and is ready for you to take it home!”

“1949 jeepster that has a L head 4 cylinder engine and runs. And I have driven it up to two days ago, but rain came. It has been rattlecanned red so paint looks bad. Has a large long gouge on passenger side and rusted out areas in the rocker panels. Column shifter with an overdrive. Shifts very good. 2 wheel drive. And a very fun car to drive. Large area in back with a large back seat. Interior needs total restoration and top bows sandblasted and painted. Needs canvas top too. Didn’t need it in good weather. These are very rare and obviously hard to find. Might trade for an original CJ3B. or a MB or M38 (not a A1). Jeeps need to be complete and fairly good condition. Still 6 volt. Starts almost everytime on first or second try. I do perfer cash though.”

Armored Fighting Vehicle (AFV) Models

• CATEGORIES: Features

Somewhere at my parents house buried under time and boxes, there may still be a few pictures of a drag strip I had when I was kid.  Built from presswood,  the home-made drag strip stretched about six feet long and maybe a foot wide.  It was painted black with white lines down the middle.  The left side of the drag strip was built on top of a series of three shelves where I could store all the model cars I built, except for the two ‘cars of the week’ that I would place on my drag strip.

I loved to build model cars, especially wild street machines.  The Boot Hill Express is one I remember building.  You can see in the image below, that I found on, an example of the Boot Hill model.  I’m sure I built a few of these others, such as the street “T”, as well as many others not pictured.

It’s not that I was ever a highly anal model builder, reveling in details and accuracy.  No, I just liked putting them together, to make the pieces fit, to get it finished so I could put it on my race track.

So, I do have a certain understanding of the skills necessary to make a really fine, high quality model — skills I am perfectly at peace saying that I don’t possess.  Of course, as a dad, I figured that if I enjoyed building models that my kids would enjoy it.

And it was then that I ran smack into rule #27 of parenting — “sometimes the things I liked to do as a kid aren’t ‘cool’ anymore” (and I probably shouldn’t open up the debate about whether model building was ‘cool’ even when I was a kid).  So, when I bought my boys a model for christmas a few years ago, they gracious said thanks, and then avoided them for the thrill of xbox.  What’s a dad to do?

What got me thinking about race tracks and building models as a kid was that I came across this extremely well done model by Serge Haelterman.  The detail is impressive, far beyond anything I’d ever do.  You can go to this AFV Website to see more pics of his model and read his description of what he did to it.

Jeeps in detail book series

• CATEGORIES: Features

Speaking of models, I just discovered a series of books that appear to come out of the Czech Republic called Jeeps in detail. The MB edition was published in 2009, so the other books might be quite new as well.

Designed for modelers, but likely excellent for restorers as well, these books are 50+ color photos of different jeeps that are in the hands of Czech private collector(s).

1. GPW Jeeps in detail
2. MB Jeeps in detail & UK Site
3. M-38 Jeeps in detail

I drove a rental car through the Czech Republic back in 2003, one of several countries I visited.  Prague was one of the stops (Cesky Krumlov was another great stop).  If you visit, I highly recommend you wander through the castle that overlooks downtown Prague.  And I highly recommend that you DON’T eat the chinese food on the south side of town.
