1941 Slat Grille MB Laramie, WY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

“For sale is a 1941 Willys “slat grill” MB Army Jeep and a matching 1943 Bantam military trailer. Both are fully licensed and titled in the state of Wyoming.

The frame number on the jeep is MB108308, meaning that it was the 8308th production jeep delivered to the Army Quartermaster in WWII. There were more than half-a-million jeeps delivered to the military during WWII from Willys (the “MB”) and Ford (the “GPW”).

There is a weird screw-up on the body, in that early production jeeps featured a “script” from the manufacturer on the back. I purchased a reproduction rear body panel and, somehow, the Willys script was stamped on the wrong side. It’s an easy fix that anyone reasonably adept at welding can handle and I probably should have taken care of it by now, but I actually enjoyed leaving it that way, largely to drive the perfectionists crazy.”

1961 CJ-5 Hawthorne, Ca $4000

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: .

This is a good looking CJ — must be those rims.  Sounds like price is negotiable, partly due to a possibly bad bearing up front.

“1961 Jeep Willys CJ5 for sale. 221cu in V6. 4 speed Muncie transmission. Brand new Warn Overdrive. Low gears-great for off-roading. 4×4 works well. In 4×4 low you could get out and walk next to it. There is some noise from the front transmission bearing. Mechanic told me it’s about $500 to fix. I will take this in to consideration when negotiating price. Motor is strong. Speedo stopped working about 300 miles ago-cable broke. Comes with bikini top, half doors, full soft top, full soft doors. Has original bumper tow hitch and a Warn 1000 winch on the bumper. Tires are in good shape w/ spare on back. Carburator recently rebuilt. New radiator/thermostat/intake manifold gaskets/head gaskets. Just needs a little t.l.c. Make me an offer. Come test drive it. Jason”

Crofton Bug

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Unusual

Crosley was the maker of some of the prototype lightweight Jeeps the Army and Willys considered building.  Apparently, Crosley continued down this path of lightweight utility vehicles.  One of the results of this efforts was designed by the Crosley company and called a Farm-O-Road.  The Crofton Bug, based on the Farm-O-Road design was actually produced by the Crofton Marine Engine Company.  Only about 250 Crofton Bugs were built between 1959 and 1962 (or 1963).  Like the jeep, these had some farm tools you could attach to these ‘mini jeeps’.  You can learn more about this 1100lb vehicle at Tom’s Crofton Bug website.

Thanks to Gerald for finding these two pics.

Gerald send these pics:

1st up, his brother’s build — This is a mixed 1948 CJ-2A.  The front loop is actually out of the red willys you’ll see in the next picture.  They had it stored in the garage for about 15 years.  Reuse and recycle.  Perfect!
