My Build: My windshield frame painted

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

Here’s some before, during and after shots of my CJ-3A windshield rebuild.  Special thanks to John for the vent bracket.  Mine broke off and John created a new one for me.  It works beautifully.  I was able to de-paint and can reuse the windshield gasket, so now all I need is the glass and the cowl rubber and it’s completed.  Necessary repairs included welding up 8 holes and welding the crack in the frame.  Next, finishing the brakes.

1947_cj2a_maricopacityUPDATE: Was $3000. **SOLD**

“… Ok, it is its original red. It has a full cage. It has a 350 Chevy V8 swapped in with a 400 Turbo Automatic. The transfer case is 1 speed and the jeep is FT 4×4. It has “Emergency Drive” which locks the transfer case and makes it drive like a standard 4×4 instead of the FT style. It appears to have about a 3″ lift on it and is sitting on a damn-near brand new set of 31×12.50 R15 BFG Muds (the old style). For my rockcrawling needs, this guy is too big of a project to get it where I want it. For someone who loves Willys or wants a Jeep to make nice… this is a great platform to start. I’d like to get $3000 for it or do some trading….”

This engine looks in very good shape. I wonder if it was painted before or after is was pulled.

I was going to convert my 4 cylinder to this motor but I have decided to wait for financial reasons. Here are the block casting numbers ( #1381623 ).

1948 VEEP Tacoma, Wa For Trade

• CATEGORIES: VEEP (VW Jeep), Scamp, Others

1948_veep_tacomaThis doesn’t appear to be an M-38-like body, as I don’t see cutouts on the driver’s side.  This is unusual.

“I have a 1948 willys (vw powered) aka veep. I am looking to trade it for a 71′ or earlier vw bus, bug, or ghia. the veep has vw bug suspension good working brakes and good tranny. it does not have a motor in it at this time it takes a standard vw aircooled bug engine.

Builds: Darryl’s 1943 GPW

• CATEGORIES: Builds

As mentioned yesterday, here’s a quick look at the 1943 GPW Darryl rebuilt.  He did some beautiful work (both in building and documenting the build).  He also built a trailer (pics below as well).  He lists his objective below:

To create for my personal use and enjoyment, a fully-functional, factory new appearing and extremely accurate “representative” WWII jeep using a new reproduction tub on an original, all “F-script” Ford wartime-production drivetrain, while containing costs and allowing minor deviations (a Solex carburetor) from the original configuration for ease of maintenance, reliability and safety and to be driving it within 12 months of starting the project.

1948 CJ-2A Warren, Mi $6000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1948_cj2a_warrenThe body has been placed onto a ’75 CJ frame, which means something had to be stretched (or the frame chopped) to make the body parts fixed.  It appears the builder stretched the body at the point where the body normally meets the fenders.  Meanwhile, it appears the hood was lengthened somehow (I can’t tell quite how).

Dino Danieli’s ww2jeep’s website

• CATEGORIES: Website

Back in 2002, or thereabouts, Dino launched a website he calls the GPW – MB – CJ 2A/3A/3B – MC/M38  Visual Reference site.”  It’s got some really useful visual information, including a dataplate page that I used tonight while reviewing a jeep.  Unfortunately, it appears to have been last updated in December of 2006.

One of the coolest images I came across was developed by Darryl of Darryl’s Garage (see below).  Darryl appears to love restoring old vehicles.  He also documents those restorations wells.  Two restorations he has done include a 1943 GPW and a 1943 Bantam Trailer (both of which I’ll highlight tomorrow).  These are excellent overviews.

So, the image that Darryl created is a beautifully done chart that follows the changes, on a monthly basis, to the GPW and MB bodies.  Nice work Darryl!   You can see what he did below (and you can find it on Dino’s site here):
