MD JUAN — Jeep Restorations in the Phillipines

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts, stainless/jewels

mdjuan_logoA reader sent me to a Craigslist-like website for the sale of all kinds of items in the Phillipines (I’ll save that discussion for a post tomorrow).  Along the journey, I came across the website for MD JUAN, a Phillipine based company that some of you are probably aware of that does jeep restorations and supplies parts to resellers all over the world, including North America.

So, it’s clear that at least some jeep body parts are being exported from the Phillipines into the United States through 5 different US Resellers.  Moreover, the company has been in business in some fashion since 1967, so it’s been doing it a while.  So, perhaps there is some way to work with those importers to bring in stainless body parts (for those interested in non-Jewels stainless)?

Also interesting, MD JUAN sells 1945 MBs.  No price is listed, however they do include an email address.

This CJ-3A only reached a high bid of $3,550 during the last auction attempt. I was a little surprised by that, but it’s also not been restored to ‘original specs’.  It looks nice and is back on the auction block.

“1949 CJ3A in extremely good condition.  It has be in body off restoration for 13 years striped to the frame.  It had the usual rust in the floor pans, new steel was welded in these areas. Also new under body rails were welded in. The frame was in good shape and the floor and the rear fender well are in good shape.  After the body tub was completed and before installed on the frame it was completely undercoated with a rubbery undercoat. Both front and rear axles were completely disassembled and rebuilt….”

1944 MB Port Angeles, Wa eBay

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

1944_mb_portangelesThere’s been a variety of updates to this MB, including the rear bumper, the later model windshield, the radiator, the wiring and more.  I’d have to agree with the seller that this might make a good platform for a restoration project based on the pics.

“This is a 1944 Military Jeep delivered June 12, 1944. The original zinc dash plaques match the frame serial. The engine serial is 3J50087. I do not know for sure if it the original engine for certain. It has been converted to 12volt. I started working o this Jeep in 2003.

1947 Empire Tractor (uses Willys drive train) Drexel, Mo $3500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features, Machinery, MB, Unusual • TAGS: , .

1947_empiretractor_drexelWell here’s something I didn’t know, submitted by a reader.  Empire Tractors were built from parts that are also used by Willys, such as the transfercase (spicer 18), transmission (t-90), differential (spicer 25) and more.  You can learn more about the specs for these tractors here.  Note that the seller claims these were built out of surplus WWII jeeps, however the t-90 was a CJ-2A tranny, so it seems more likely to me that they shared parts with the CJ-2A rather than built from the MB.

“HERE WE HAVE A RARE 1947 EMPIRE TRACTOR. MODEL 88-90 MADE IN 11-47 SERAIL NUMBER 6352 IT WAS RESTORED ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO AND HAS BEEN KEPT INSIDE ALL IT’S LIFE. THIS HAS WILLYS JEEP ENGINE AND TRANS,AND ALOT OF OTHER JEEP PARTS IN IT,THAT ARE ORGINAL TO THE TRACTOR. THESE TRACTORS WERE BUILT AFTER WWII OUT OF SURPLUS ARMY JEEPS. THE PAINT SHOWS SOME WEAR . THE TIRES ON BACK ARE ORGINAL AND FRONTS HAVE BEEN REPALCED. COMES WITH ORGINAL LIGHTS AND GENERATOR IN A BOX. IT HAS HAD ONLY 3 OWNERS AND RUNS AND DRIVES LIKE IT SHOULD, READY TO USE OR SHOW. THIS COMES WITH A BELLY SICKLE MOWER,THAT HAS NOT BEEN USED IN 20 YEARS. 3500 FIRM. MY NUMBER IS 660-267-3282 THANKS FOR LOOKING”

“Picked up this willys in southwest GA a year ago with great intentions…had been in a dry barn for 20+years..still has the dust on it to this day.. this was to be my next streetrod project, with the backlog of customer work in my shop I dont see how I will ever find the time to start a project for myself, let alone finish it…   If your looking for good sheetmetal for a hotrod or restoration project this is it. the rockers have been repaired improperly and should be replaced with new. other than that the body is nearly rust free. vehicle is fairly complete minus the top and mechanism.”

Happy New Year

• CATEGORIES: News

first_birthdayHappy New Year everyone (at least somewhere it’s the New Year).   New Year’s day marks the official one year anniversary of eWillys.

Over the past year I’ve met lots of new friends from all around the world, written about 1400 posts, nearly finished my own jeep, and only pissed off one reader (that I know of :-)).  I feel like I’ve successfully hit my goals this year: to create a website that follows the older jeep & jeep parts market so that I and others can better understand the market demographics — what’s for sale, how much they cost, and more.  Along the way, I’ve tried to make it interesting, amusing and educational.

Based on the feedback I’ve received, you all seem to be enjoying the site thus far.  My 14 year old son swears to me that one day he was walking down the street in downtown Salt Lake City and heard two guys talking about the eWillys website and how much they liked it, which he thought was pretty cool.

Over the next year, I hope to continue to deliver interesting information,  improve the site (especially those drop down menus which stick within firefox), and expand the content in new directions.

Finally, I really really appreciate all the readers who have provided endless helpful feedback, suggestions and information.  I try to keep this site updated on 24/7 basis as best as possible and sometimes I make mistakes in the process, so always feel free to drop me a line, and I’ll respond as quickly as possible.

Have a wonderful 2009 everyone!

– Dave
