1942 MB Slat Grille Spokane, Wa eBay

• CATEGORIES: MB

Here’s a great looking slat grille.  It’s not 100% original, but is in excellent condition.

“This is an awsome early (less than 7% of the total war time production) Willys slat grill MB! It’s date of delivery is January 2nd, 1942 and the matching frame & dash data tag list it as serial number “108808” It’s has the body tub features peculiar to these early jeeps like the script “Willys”on the rear panel, square shaped fuel tank well, no glovebox on the passenger’s side dash, and dual hinge rear tool box lids. The fuel tank’s the correct “small mouth” and the windshield, seats, hood, grill, baffles…all of the body parts…are original correct slat grill components. It even has the correct “fluted” inner axle shafts that are always missing, the cast windshield hold down clamps, and the early “pancake” style air cleaner. This is a genuine early slat grill jeep!….”

My Build: Update on Progress

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

With my son Karson’s help, I got everything ready to fire-up the engine.  So, we flicked on the switches and he pushed the button … and nothing.  Such is the wonderful world of projects.

So, it was time to start testing parts to see what I did wrong.  First, we discovered the start button was bad, so that was replaced.  Then, I realized I had a loose wire, which we repaired. But, the biggest issue I had was that I wired up the Starter Relay (aka Starter Solenoid depending on the source) incorrectly.  That took a little rewiring and refiguring (see revised schematic two posts above), but we did it.  Then we tried the start button and success, the engine turned over without any unexpected noises!

Next, I realized the fuel pump wasn’t working. However, it turned out to be another wiring issue and I got that resolved.

We got to the point where gas was getting into the carb, spark was reaching the spark plugs and the engine was turning over, but it didn’t fire.

The next step was to more closely check the timing. While taking off the spark plug off the number one cylindar, the spark plug broke.  I’ve never had that happen before.  At that point it was 10pm and we couldn’t run to the store to get another plug.  That was dissapointing as I had to take the boys home the next day (yesterday).

The good news is we got really close.  It is nearly ready!   I’ve promised to get video of the engine running so they can hear it (which of course I’ll post here as well).

Best of all, though, was watching 15 year old Karson get excited about working on the jeep.  He was asking to go out and work on it, he waited patiently for things to do, and asked questions when he didn’t know what he was doing.  That experience alone is worth everything I’ve put into this crazy project.

1949_cj3a_loxTo say this is ‘all original’ except for the running gear struck me as strange.  It would seem there would have to be a variety of updates to accomodate the running gear.

“it is all orignal except the runing gear. i put chevy 1/2 ton in it, i had them narrowed to keep the same look of the jeep, i still have the orginal front end. it also has a custom roll cage 33s but it will fit 38s all it needs to run is fuel lines and fuel pump”

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: .

1943_gpw_westseattleUPDATE: I’m a little surprised this hasn’t been purchased already, but maybe the project is bigger than it appears.

This might be a good price.

“This is a 1943 Military Ford Jeep GPW vehicle. My father purchased this Jeep with hopes of restoring it to it’s original state. Unfortunately we have other vehicle and rental projects and just do not have the time. This a really a great Jeep and a classic. This is a perfect vehicle for someone looking to have a project and make it their own. The Jeep is in need of some rust repair and the installation of a new timing gear and timing chain. My Father has already purchased a new timing chain, timing gear, new transmission knobs, and new U-joints for the jeep and are all included in the sale. The jeep also comes with an spare engine, gas tank, tire, and a complete jeep manual booklet. What’s great is that they still make every part for this jeep. This is a great jeep and ready to be taken good care of. The price is firm only because we believe it is a very good deal and considering the jeep comes with a spare engine and the other parts mentioned above. If you would like further information regarding the jeep you can reach my father at 206-947-8153 and myself at 206-999-3809.”

The engine probably has less than 50,000 miles on it, but I dont know for sure.  The frame is straight and the body is in pretty rough shape in my opinion, although not bad for its for its age, has some rust spots, nothing all the way through, and has also had some paint and body work as well, which I did myself, so its not perfect….”

1950 CJ-3A Coos Bay, Or **SOLD?**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

1950_cj3a_coosbayI love the old hubs on this classic CJ-3A (pic below).  I don’t think I’ve seen these Cutter hubs before.  I did a search on them, but couldn’t find anything.

“Up for auction is an amazingly original 1950 CJ3A. This vehicle was used by the mosquito abatement district in Chico, California since the 50’s and has been very well maintained. Other than an inop vacuum wiper motor, worn clutch and non-original temp gauge everything is original and works! (Even the hand brake!) Unless the vehicle was in use it was stored in a closed maintenance garage contributing to the great condition of the body tub and frame. The only rust on the vehicle is located in the passenger side floor/hat channel, an area adjacent to the driver’s side top bow pocket and and area on the driver’s side just forward of the rear wheel well opening, (see pictures). That’s it! …. There is so much more! New battery and starter. Very unusual Cutter front hubs. You don’t run across one like this very often! Feel free to e-mail me with any questions you might have.”

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was on eBay

“I went to great lengths to get this Jeep back to what it would have looked like after a few years in it’s original job.  The Jeep was painted it’s true color – Normandy Blue and the wheels are Sunset Red – more of an orange – which is their original color.  This Jeep towed planes and helicopters, plowed snow, and was a mobile airplane mechanics toolbox at the Akron – Canton airport.  In recognition of that, I left the big channel front bumper and the custom “towing tab” on the bumper.  I also instructed the body man to leave the dents in the bed – I wanted some of the patina ( I now wish I’d just had him fix the dents, I think)….”
