Roberto spotted this unusual Mitsuibishi CJ-3B with extended tool indents at Jeep Forum.  I’ve not seen anything quite like it.

1953 CJ-3B Charleston, Il **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5000.

This looks like good price. It has a rare fiberglass CJ-3B body.

“This is my winter project. It isa fiberglassed bodied jeep cj3b. It has a yj suspension with new shocks and springs. Power steering and power brakes are all new with discs in front and stock in rear. All new shoes and cylinders. Also new seals all around. Corbeau seats with 3 point harnesses. New aluminum radiator. New tires and wheels. New Bestop top. New paint, not professional but looks nice. Engine is a chevy 327 and it looks new inside and runs great. The transmission is the original t-90 3 speed with new bearings and syncros. The clutch, pressure plate and throwout bearing is new.

This jeep runs great but with a 327 and 5:38 gears I would not recommend this for a kid. It does make a noise when in 4 wheel drive and I don’t know what it is and don’t want to mess with it right now.”

1948 CJ-2A Mentor, Oh $6500


UPDATE:  Still Available

(12/24/2010) Parade condition … hmmmm … it does looks solid though.  Sounds like it needs some additional work.

“I am parting with my 60+ year old Jeep. This is a very rare vehicle due to the amount of original parts including the Vacuum Wiper Motor! The Jeep is sound with the exception of a hole in the passenger side floorboard and some repairs performed years ago by previous owners.

The paint job IS NOT original. It was painted by the previous owner. This vehicle can be driven daily and has been very reliable driving to and from shows and events. I would say that it is ‘Parade condition’ it looks great from the sidewalk!

Repairs in the last three years:

Wheel cylinders and brake shoes
A new clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, and pilot bushing.
Parking brake repaired
Fuel pump (glass bowl filter style)
(5) Original ‘riveted’ rims installed Non-directional tires & inner-tubes
Stored Indoors
Finding a Jeep of this vintage that still has the original running gear and has not been butchered is very difficult.

This Jeep does need work to be brought up to show quality and the price reflects that.
However, if you are looking for an antique that can be driven and enjoyed in its original condition – you have found it.

Rough; but, Ready! Call: Anthony 440-725-1000”

1959 M-38A1 Collierville, TN **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2600.

(01/16/2011) This looks like a good little runner for a reasonable price.  The body does have a few body patches.

“1959 Willys Jeep CJ5 with about 27,000 miles on the speedometer (speedometer was disconnected when I bought the Jeep). 3-speed with high/low range and 4×4. Has the front locking hubs. 12-volt system. Rebuilt starter motor and carburetor last week.

Wheels are 15 inch and in great condition with good Michelin 33×12.5 tires on them with good tread remaining. Previous owner invested over $900 in wheels and tires alone.

A few small rust spots under the paint and it is not a professional paint job but it looks good. The jeep does have a rust hole in the glove box and in the compartment under the passenger seat as well as some through the back bumper. There are metal plates screwed on across the back, in the bed, and on the front floors due to rusting of the original metal I presume. Some fiberglass repairs have been made on the back fenders also. Overall it is a very solid jeep.

It runs strong with no problems, starts and drives great. Previous owner took the glass out of the windshield frame. Needs turns signals, brake light wires connected,, and a windshield.

I have a top and two doors from a Humvee that I’ll include with the jeep. They are in good condition except for a hole in one of the plastic windows. They would need customizing to be able to be put on the jeep though.”

Nissan Patrol 4W61, 4W65/4W66

• CATEGORIES: Features, International, Nissan

On the heals of last night’s post on the Nissan 4W60, we have the next major model of Nissan 4x4s  which are sort of CJ-3Bish. They were produced from 1955 – 1960.  You can learn about them here:  4W61, 4W65/ 4W66.

The 4W61 was produced from 1955 – 1958.

This is the 4W65 produced from 1958-1959. Now, while these have the correct side pieces, you can see the fenders look more like the 4W61.  So, compare the front of the two below photos with the Black and white photo underneath.

The 4W66 was produced for six months in 1959 and 1960. I don’t have any good examples of this, but here’s a modified firetruck F4W66.

1956 FC-150 Forestville, Ca eBay

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: .

This is rare alirght, buy I think it is the paint job that makes it so rare; don’t seem many rainbow FCs!

“This is a rare find. A Jeep FC 150 from the 50’s. I believe it’s a 56 but similar measurements with the 57 cause confusion. As you can see by the photos, it’s in need of a total restoration. For the age, the body is in pretty good shape. The drivers side has a dent. The windshield is cracked. The engine is there but as I said, it needs a mechanic. The bed is in tact. I saw one small hole but other then that,  it looks good. The color on the body appears to be original, multi-colored. I have seen other trucks like this one restored and they look really cool and different. There arn’t many of these around so who ever drives it around will get a lot of attention and questions!! If you are seriously interested, contact me with any questions and I’ll get right back to you.  If your in need of more pics, I can do that too.”

NIssan Patrol 4W60

• CATEGORIES: Features, International, News

Roberto wrote to me asking if I knew of any manuals or other information for the restoration of a Datsun/Nissan 4W60 for a friend that is considering restoring one  (if anyone knows of a manual, please let me know).  Well, I didn’t even know the 4W60 existed.  So, I started researching. Here are several models that followed the 4W60.

According to this site, Nissan, Toyota and Mitsubishi all submitted prototypes to the Japanese government in 1950 to win the rights to produce government 4wd vehicles. Mitsubishi would win, but Nissan and Toyota continued to develop 4wd vehicles anyway.

The Nissan Prototype submitted for consideration looked like this:

For the first production run starting in 1951, however, Nissan went with a very MB-like design.  I tried to find restored examples of these, but had no luck.

The second version of the 4W60 had a few changes. I found this image on a Russian auto website, but misplaced the link.

Here’s a brochure from the Rocky Mountain Patrol and Offroad Website

The would also make a Wagon (4W60 wagon) and a Truck (4w70 Truck).

Here are some useful links:

The Petty CJ-2A is for auction … on eBay this time


Quote from seller:  This is absolutely my favorite Jeep all time and I have sold approximately 100 Jeeps in the past 7 years. I would love to keep this one for myself however I must sell… There is a small dent on the drivers rear quarter that I will show in the pictures but other than that it is flawless. The Jeeps runs perfect and I don’t know how it could be any better.

How could it be better?  Let’s start with the front bumper — Check the image below (click on it for larger image). See previous post about this jeep. Seriously, that is one of the worst bumpers I’ve ever seen.
