Builds — Oklahoma Green and One Bad Apple

• CATEGORIES: Builds, CJ-3A, Features • TAGS: .

I was searching for an image of original CJ-3A gauges when i stumbled upon this article.  Both of these are well modified, good looking road and trail jeeps.  One of the more interesting features of the ‘Oklahoma Green’ Jeep is the number of gauges that are installed.  One Bad Apple certainly has an usual paint job.

Here’s 2 excerpts from an Off Road Adventures Article; each one discuss a little bit about each jeep:

oklahoma_greenOklahoma Green: “… Below the CJ3A Willys’ windshield is a dashboard that would be more than adequate in a J3 Super Cub airplane of the same vintage. The aircraft-like dash sports a full compliment of gauges: fuel, fuel pressure, oil pressure, oil temp, water temp, vacuum, and air pressure gauges along with a voltmeter, hourmeter, and altimeter by Hobbs. A Lev-O-Gauge rounds out the impressive array. Lights and buzzers backup the critical gages. From the dash, Ken can switch on the fuel pump, fast idle solenoid, headlights, heater, and winch. Indicator lights report the status of 4WD, seat belts, ARB, emergency brake, and air compressor…. ”

one_bad_appleOne Bad Apple: “… The frame was lengthened 6-inches to incorporate a GM 4.3 V6 CMFI 195 hp at 4500 rpm engine with K&N Air Cleaner and Painless Wiring, a GM 700R4 with a manual shift kit, and a Dana 300 transfer case with CV driveshaft. With 4.88 gears, the final crawl ratio is 80:1. The front axle is a Dana 30 with an ARB Air Locker and disk brakes. The rear axle is a Dana 44 with a Detroit Locker. Four-inch lift springs, an off-road track bar, and Rancho 5000 Shocks control 33×12.50 BFG Mud Terrain T/As …..”

1953_cj3b_littletonUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5000

The seller of this jeep claims it only has 4,051 miles.  If that’s true, then this might be a pretty good deal.  Maybe it’s just the lighting, but the back of the jeep looks like it’s a bit more faded then the rest.

“Mileage: 4051, Includes: Winch, Tow Bar, White Kayline Soft top, Extra Gas Tank, Set of on road & off road tires. Needs some work, great project vehicle. Everything is Original! Only 4051 miles! Let me know if you want more pictures!”

1953 CJ-5 Spokane, Wa $1200 or trade


1953_cj5_spokaneIf this truly is a 1953, then I suspect this is a M-38a1, as I don’t *think* CJ-5s were manufactured prior to 1955.  I like it because it sports what look like nice, old school slot aluminum rims which are hard to find.   The body parts appear in good condition too.  There might be some other good points also.

“I have a 1953 cj 5 project and need to make more room for race car stuff…lol….. I want 1200 cash or trade for the following (see craigslist ad) ….  Arin.  509 863 8953… Best offer by sunday and it goes!!!!”

My Build — Disc Brake Anchor Plate issue?


caliper2Winter has a funny way of blowing all kind of things into and around the garage. Last November I took a break from projects in the garage, but when I went out there a couple of weeks ago, it was a bigger mess than I remembered it.  So, I spent last weekend cleaning (including cleaning out the parts washer — uggh), organizing and getting ready to attack my first project of the year, getting the disc brake parts cleaned up and painted.

caliper_correct1So, when I went out today to start with the brake parts, naturally I ran into problems.

PROBLEM 1: My parts washer repaid my efforts at cleaning by developing a leak at the base of the pump.  Not cool.  Since this parts washer is older than some of the wagon wheel trails around here, I’m not entirely sure if I can find parts for it.  It’s entirely possible it’s a custom tank.  So, I get to spend this upcoming weekend removing the washing liquid and attempting to patch the leak.

caliper_problemholePROBLEM 2: Since the parts washer wasn’t going to work, I decided to use a wire brush and a sander to clean up the parts.  So, I cleaned up one of the anchor plates, no problem.  I got to the second anchor plate and noticed that what’s supposed to look like a hole with threads had chunks missing and the threads are gone.  Having not worked with these brakes before, I decided it was time to close up the garage for the day and hop on the internet to see if I could learn more about the problem.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything about the problem.

So dear readers, what’s the bolt for?  Is it important?  I’ve got two images to the right.  The image at the top shows the entire anchor plate.  The second pic highlights a correct hole and the bottom image highlights the problem and shows the bolt that should go there?  Do I need the bolt (of course, I’m sure I do)?

1946 CJ-2A Aumsville, Or $1500


1946_cj2a_aumsvilleIt ran when they last parked it.  I don’t know if that means it still runs or they haven’t tried starting it or?

“This is a pretty original 1946 CJ2A. I don’t know a whole lot about it – only that it ran when parked. My dad and I received this jeep from a cousin in trade for something else. I think the pictures tell the story and I have more so email me if you’d like for me to send you additional pictures. I don’t have the wherewithal (mainly a lack of time) to do anything with the jeep at this time. If you see this ad, the jeep is still available. The only trade I would consider is a partial trade towards an uncut first generation Bronco with minimal rust and a straight body.”

Race Jeep Centralia, Wa **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Racing • TAGS: , .

race_jeep_centraliaThis is a very good price on a race jeep that looks ready to go.  Get ready for summer!  I think this has reversed springs in the front.  I can’t tell if the back springs are outboarded or not.  I’m gonna guess the body is a fiberglass one piece bobcat body, judging by the thickness of the rim around the back side of the body that either tilts up or you lift off.  The desert dogs look in very good shape as do the rims. The paint job is unique as well.

“Race Jeep, Chev. 350, 4 speed trans. disc brake 44 front end, 44 rear end. Runs and drives. Mount body and its ready to go racing.”
