It looks like there’s been some changes to the floor boards — probably rusted out and were replaced.

Bantam “Pilot Car” Reborn

• CATEGORIES: Bantam-FordGP-WillysMA-EarlyJPs, videos

Bill, who runs this great Bantam Website, forwarded me a link to the below video which reveals the results of a four year Bantam Reconnaissance Car Pilot recreation completed by Duncan Rolls.

From the YouTube website, Watch a perfectly authentic re-creation of the original Bantam Reconnaissance Car Pilot (the world’s first jeep) go on-road and off in a demonstration by builder Duncan Rolls. The Pilot Re-creation required over 3500 hours of work to build. The drive components are original Bantam and Continental parts, as are the gauge cluster and other parts (a total of 60 per cent of the vehicle). Duncan made the chassis and body completely by hand. The only original sheet metal was a stock Bantam cowl, but even that had to be widened by six inches, just like the original was. The original Pilot, delivered to the Army at Camp Holabird, MD on September 23, 1940, was lost to history after successful testing.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

The dashboard is unusual.

“1948 Willys Custom Jeep with a Ford 302 V-8 Engine, 4-Speed Manual Transmission and lots of other extras that makes for a perfect hunting/farming/ranching vehicle. This jeep has had a lot of alterations but runs and drives good. The body is straight and the drive train seems to be tight. The engine has limited blow-by but does show some exhaust smoke. Some reconditioning may be needed but it should provide you with a lot of great service.”

My Build: Cage Painted and Installed


TABLE OF CONTENTS: There’s 4 sections to this post:

  1. 1. My Completed Cage in my jeep
  2. 2. What I thought about when building my cage
  3. 3. Links to dicussions about my cage
  4. 4. Other roll cage images

1.  MY CAGE:
Here’s the cage in the jeep.  Yeah, I’m happy about this.  It’s a little chromier color than I wanted, but I suspect I’ll be covering it with wrap soon.  I already hit my head once, lol …





And here’s a video:


And an overview of my experience:

This post reflects my experience researching and building my roll cage.  My goal with this post is to eliminate the need for others to spend the hours and hours I spent researching weighing options and deciding upon a cage.  Note that while I have had a couple cages and my dad built two cages (back in the 70s), this was the first cage I designed, bent and built myself.

Rebuilt SM420 + Adapter Running Springs, CA $300

• CATEGORIES: Transmissions

This sounds like a great price.

“Have a newly rebuilt Chevy SM420 transmission. Bought it originally for my Willys wagon and never installed after going with a different drive train. This trans is one of the best for off roading due to its low 1st gear and is great in short wheelbase rigs since its only about a little over a foot long. This Trans also comes with an extra 420 that is not in great shape but its extra parts! I also have a Advanced Adapters SM420 to Dana 18 alum. adapter along with a twin stick Dana 18 T-case for sale as well. Asking $300 for the two trannys. If you have any questions just give me a call at 909 519 5787 Thanx!”
