1956 FC-150 Forestville, Ca eBay

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

This is rare alirght, buy I think it is the paint job that makes it so rare; don’t seem many rainbow FCs!

“This is a rare find. A Jeep FC 150 from the 50’s. I believe it’s a 56 but similar measurements with the 57 cause confusion. As you can see by the photos, it’s in need of a total restoration. For the age, the body is in pretty good shape. The drivers side has a dent. The windshield is cracked. The engine is there but as I said, it needs a mechanic. The bed is in tact. I saw one small hole but other then that,  it looks good. The color on the body appears to be original, multi-colored. I have seen other trucks like this one restored and they look really cool and different. There arn’t many of these around so who ever drives it around will get a lot of attention and questions!! If you are seriously interested, contact me with any questions and I’ll get right back to you.  If your in need of more pics, I can do that too.”

NIssan Patrol 4W60

• CATEGORIES: Features, International, News

Roberto wrote to me asking if I knew of any manuals or other information for the restoration of a Datsun/Nissan 4W60 for a friend that is considering restoring one  (if anyone knows of a manual, please let me know).  Well, I didn’t even know the 4W60 existed.  So, I started researching. Here are several models that followed the 4W60.

According to this site, Nissan, Toyota and Mitsubishi all submitted prototypes to the Japanese government in 1950 to win the rights to produce government 4wd vehicles. Mitsubishi would win, but Nissan and Toyota continued to develop 4wd vehicles anyway.

The Nissan Prototype submitted for consideration looked like this:

For the first production run starting in 1951, however, Nissan went with a very MB-like design.  I tried to find restored examples of these, but had no luck.

The second version of the 4W60 had a few changes. I found this image on a Russian auto website, but misplaced the link.

Here’s a brochure from the Rocky Mountain Patrol and Offroad Website

The would also make a Wagon (4W60 wagon) and a Truck (4w70 Truck).

Here are some useful links:

The Petty CJ-2A is for auction … on eBay this time

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

Quote from seller:  This is absolutely my favorite Jeep all time and I have sold approximately 100 Jeeps in the past 7 years. I would love to keep this one for myself however I must sell… There is a small dent on the drivers rear quarter that I will show in the pictures but other than that it is flawless. The Jeeps runs perfect and I don’t know how it could be any better.

How could it be better?  Let’s start with the front bumper — Check the image below (click on it for larger image). See previous post about this jeep. Seriously, that is one of the worst bumpers I’ve ever seen.

1949 CJ-3A Elk River, MN **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $900

(01/22/2011) This is a project.  This seller also has a 1948 CJ-2A for sale.

“1948-49 CJ-3A Willys – $1200 (OBO Elk River) Here is a decent starting point for someone interested in building a vintage Willy’s Flat Fender Jeep with V6 power.

This CJ model featured the one piece style windshield which followed the CJ-2A. One photo below shows what it looked like when we got it. The baja tires/rims have been traded off for the traditional slotted 16” rims.

This jeep originally came from Washington State. We received this Willy’s CJ3A in trade. There is no title. There is bill of sale from the previous owner and you would receive that copy and a new one for this sale.

The previous owner acquired this with an odd fire 231 Dauntless V6 (included) & intended to repower it with a newer rebuilt Buick V6 (also included). The price includes both V6’s. The Advance Adapters V6 to T-90 transmission adapter & what appears to be the correct aluminum bell housing are included.

Transmission is a T-90 A-1 Borg Warner, mated to Spicer transfer case, front axle is Spicer 25 and rear axle is whatever original came in 48. Included are both drive shafts and a spare rear axle. I did not open the transmission or transfer case.

The frame was modified by the previous owner in the following ways: a custom front bumper was added, front frame reinforced and designed to accept a winch. A later, manual style, Saginaw steering box is mounted and works fine, V6 motor mounts are welded in as are repositioned radiator and battery mounts.

1972 era Jeep 11” brakes are fitted on the front axle, standard ones are on the back. I replaced the brake cylinders and shoes with new parts and the brake lines on the axles are new. I did not have any drum work done.

When I received it, I removed the tub, sand blasted the frame, painted it with Valspar Farm & Implement Black paint intended as a primer. I’ve worked some on the fenders, grill and hood. Seat frames & gas tank were repainted. The tub is rather rough but workable for someone who knows what they are doing.

We are moving and we need to reduce our number of vintage Willy’s projects. I can also provide you with a Photo CD of every picture I’ve taken regarding what work I’ve done so far.

I also have a complete, mostly original, restoration ready 1948 CJ2A with 12 volt conversion for sale.”

Some Days are Harder than Others ….

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit, How To

The plan was simple, fool proof, and, best of all, idiot proof.  But, alas, not Dave proof. The goal, attach my new ‘ewillys’ stickers to plates and attach them to the sides of Biscuit.

Step One: Have stickers made — CHECK.

Step Two: Cut and shape Ovals out of a street sign (note: not snagged from the subdivision down the street, but from a metal yard) — CHECK.

Step Three: Drill plates for mounting holes — CHECK.

Step Four: Attach stickers — FAIL … well, they are ‘stuck on’, but they have bubbles. That’s $50 down the drain — do over time.

See, had I made step Four “Check the internet on mounting vinyl stickers”, I would have been ok. But nooooooo, instead, I cleaned the plates with a degreaser (should have used soap and water), wiped them dry, and then stuck the stickers (should have sprayed some water and a little soap onto the plate and then squeegeed the sticker onto the plate).

Ok, lesson learned.  So, I bolted the stickered plates onto Biscuit, just for kicks.  I stepped back and took one look and knew I had screwed up, again — twice in one day!  See, I thought that hiding the allen bolts, which are black, along the black lines of the ewillys’ script would hide them. But this didn’t happen.  Instead, they disrupt the eye as you read the logo, both close up and from up to 20ft away.  So, now I’m really ticked.  So I mounted the plates to teach myself a lesson — don’t presume to know what you don’t, check the interet first!

When I cool down, I’ll get some new stickers printed, properly attach the stickers, and widen the bolts left and right.

Below is a blurry pic of the attached sticker.  I’ll replace it with a better one tomorrow  …. Hopefully, I’ll keep someone from making the same mistake 🙂

It would be a great jeep to restore! It has a new battery and I replaced the wheel cylinders and shoes, so the brakes work as well. Not pictured, but I have a complete set of seats with decent covers. I also have a hardtop that fits it for sale seperate. Call me for more information. Nathan 402-813-5312.
