Our Gang Ice Racing in Georgetown Colorado

• CATEGORIES: Racing, videos • TAGS: .

ourgang_ice_racing
For reasons only the Our Gang 4Wheeler folks know, they prefer their racing chilled, literally on ice. It appears to be a family fun affair with a season that varies with the thickness of ice.

Our Gang 4 Wheelers is an ice racing club whose volunteers have been organizing ice races in Colorado for 34 years.  You’ll find them out on Georgetown Lake in the beautiful Rocky Mountains in Colorado.  Their season spans 6 weekends through January and February.

For those of you who want to try this sport, but don’t have tires, it appears they’ll rent you some.  You’ll have to check out their website to learn more.

There’s many more videos and pictures here:  http://www.ourgangiceracing.com/Media.html

Completely Reconditioned 6 Volt Starter

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Parts

A reader named Mike asked me to post this.

“I have a completely rebuilt a CJ-2A starter. It has a new bendix.  The guts have all been cleaned and turned.  The bushings and brushes have been cleaned.  I even have the new bushing that goes in the bellhousing. Its a 6 volt starter.  It came out of a 1947 CJ-2A.  I put a 12 volt starter in and so do not need it anymore. I invested 150 dollars, so want to get 100 dollars for it.  It’s in excellent condition.”

This looks like a great price on a Bantam Trailer.  I’ve seen them priced much higher.

“These are highly collectible. This is an excellent little Trailer. Length is 6 ft. It tows nicely.  I believe this to be a Bantam TC-3 (civilian). These are commonly called Jeep trailers. It has a clear Title. It works great as a Utility Trailer or pull it behind your Jeep for Jeeping.

1946 VEC CJ-2A Wichita, Ks $1900

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  Price dropped to $1900 without the Hardtop or $2200 with it.  The seller has included the serial number, in the previous AD — #36930.  The engine is seized, but it includes an extra engine.

“I am reposting my CJ2A to see if by chance if there is anyone interested. It is a complete all orignall 46 CJ2A with a hard top. I will sell the 2A less the hard top as I have a buyer for the hard top, but will not let the hard top go until the 2A has a home. The brand on the hard top is Carson Car Craft (built in Oklahoma City). I have an extra engine as the engine in the 2A is locked up. The extra engine is not locked and is rebuildable. I also have all 5 orignal wheels that will also go with the 2A. I have a extra pair of front fenders as part of the deal. I had been asking $2500.00 for the 2A with the hard top, but at this point I would take $2200.00 for the 2A with the hard top or just the 2A less the hard top for $1900.00!!

1946 CJ-2A Redding, Ca $6000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

The seller claims it “would not take much” to complete a restoration.  I think that underestimates the amount of work.

“Selling my willy’s Jeep – GREAT HUNTING RIG! Tow bar mounted to new front bumper assembly. Very good condition, would not take much to finish a complete restoration. Have clean title on hand. New upholstery and very clean throughout.  This jeep has 90% of its original parts, original engine converted to 12 volt. Runs good, smokes a little. All running gear works good, the T-90 transmission DOES NOT slip out of second gear which is common for these jeeps. Very little rust for its age. Steps still will hold weight. No holes in floor boards. Great jeep to drive now or to continue to restore. All lights work including dash lights.  INCLUDED: another full complete engine and another long-block to use as a core as well, 2 extra fenders, 1 extra hood, another windshield assembly and 4 more tires/rims.
Any questions please ask, call rather than e-mail: (530) 244-7167. Serious buyers only, sold as is. Thanks.”

1950 M-38 & M-38A1 Nebraska $1000

• CATEGORIES: M-38, M-38A1 • TAGS: .

The flattie looks to be a M-38, so the year should be 1950 or later.  The other I’m guessing to be a M-38a1.  It’s a bizarre parking job.

“The red jeep ran when i got it 5yrs ago. The drive train worked good too. It has a title. The yellow jeep has the motor taken out of it and is in the back of it same with the front clip. The drive train is good on it though. It dosent have a title. I was gana take the two and make on nice one. And take the rest of the other one and make a trailer for it. I will bring them to denver for you for an extra 300. If you have any questions feel free to ask @ mrdobrinski@gmail.com”

• CATEGORIES: MB

1942_mb_wallawallaUPDATE:  Price dropped to $1500

(06/08/09) This is an MB mixed with an 80’s Toyota of some type?

“1942 Willys with Toyota running gear (Engine a 22R, 4 speed manual tranny, tranfer case and axles are all out of an ealry 80’s Toyota). Tires are 38 inch Gumbo Monster Mudders Radials, siped with 60-70% tread left. This rig is open front and rear with stock gears and keeps up with fully locked, re-geared rigs. It is a pure mountain machine, its light, very flexy and extremely capable in mud and snow. I would consider selling the jeep for less without the tires but will not sell the tires without the jeep.”

Builds: Steve saves a M-38

• CATEGORIES: Builds

Steve tells me he spotted this M-38 on eWillys and decided to purchase it last July.  On the right you can see the ‘before’ condition which is how Steve purchased it, but I think it pretty much tells the story.  There was a bunch of metal welded onto the jeep in odd places and it was red, everywhere.

As you can see in the pics below, just taking off the metal and painting it green has done wonders for this old M-38.
