1949 Jeepster Ventura, Ca eBay

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  There’s been some discussion about the engine not being stock on the ebay ad.  The stock inline 6 would have been an L 166 ‘lightning’ from what i have read.  However, the engine looks so nice in there, I don’t think it matters that it isn’t original.

Here’s a beautiful car that comes with a matching coffee mug.

“This is a very nice Jeepster that has just completed a very thorough cosmetic restoration to high standards. It was totally rust free having been in southern California all its life. Last year the owner brought me a coffee mug from a café in San Diego and he told me “Restore my Jeepster to match this mug. I love the color!” I think we succeeded.

The Jeepster body was disassembled down to the body tub which was left on the chassis as the floors were perfect. Body work was performed as required and the beautiful green paint was applied, color sanded and polished. It is stunning. Fenders were painted off the car to get a nice finish under the hood. The black second color was done the same way. We repainted the interior and dash as well.

The rare factory original OHV six cylinder engine was cleaned and painted having been previously rebuilt and in great running condition. This is a much more desirable engine than the four which is most Jeepsters. The transmission is a three speed with overdrive. Brakes were recently redone and work great. Tires are recent and are Coker white walls with a newer spare to match. Exhaust is great. Shocks are all new and the front suspension was totally rebuilt.

The top and side curtains are all brand new in a tan color that offsets the green and black to perfection. Top frame was repainted. The seats are older but in great shape and are black to match the trim. Steering wheel is new reproduction ….”

1961 CJ-5 Staten Island, Ny $1000

• CATEGORIES: CJ5

This has an unusual story.  This was damaged in 1962 and never run again.  It has 1,231 original miles.

“For Sale: 1961 willys CJ5.  Has 1,231 original miles. It was hit in the rear in 1962 and never used again. The previous owner removed the damaged rear quarter, wheel well, back floor pan and tail gate and purchased OEM body parts, but never reassembled it. The Jeep has been stored inside since 1962. I have what appears to be the entire vehicle awaiting reassembly. The transmission and transfer case were opened by the original owner and are missing some parts along with having rust inside.

Although it has been hit and needs to be reassembled, it has no heavy rust or rust-through, only surface rust. The engine and axels are in tact and the chassis rolls.

Randy forwarded me an announcement that Bill Mauldin has been honored with a stamp, shown below.

According to the email Randy sent me, “Mauldin, and his work,  meant much to the millions of Americans who fought in World War II, and  to those who had waited for them to come home. He was a kid cartoonist for  Stars and Stripes, the military newspaper; Mauldin’s drawings of his muddy,  exhausted, whisker-stubbled infantrymen Willie and Joe were the voice of  truth about what it was like on the front lines.”

Builds: Brian Wires His CJ-3B

• CATEGORIES: Builds

Brian has provided a very thorough look at his approach to wiring his CJ-3B. My only wish is that he had written this BEFORE I had wired my Jeep, because I would have created a mockup dash like he did.  Many thanks Brian!

Brian writes, I had a major setback in my 3b project when I damaged the valve train on my CPI engine, stopping oil from getting to the lifters. So, I had to swap engines before I could really start my test-drive shake-down period. As part of my swap, I chose to go with the TBI 4.3L V6.   What really hurt was that I almost had the wiring complete for a CPI engine, but I knew what worked for the CPI would not work for the TBI engine. This meant a major layout change was in order.

If I had to label this part of my build I would have to call it “The things Painless does not want you to know”, because I feel I was able to save well over $1000.00 by utilizing a free wiring harness I pulled from a Blazer I junked.  By working with the stock harness, I was able to use fuel pump relays and other items that help me avoid the nickel and dime effect that can add up to big bucks. I also learned some sort-cuts and where to get OEM parts to help complete the job correctly.  So, here’s my adventure ….

LAYING OUT THE WIRING

Because the limited amount of space under the dash of my 3b, I had to move things around from the stock location in the Blazer. Fortunately, the harness I salvaged had enough wire to do this. However, trying to rewire and do everything I needed to do underneath the dash wasn’t an option.  So, I made a mockup of the dash out of wood that allowed me to easily organize, size and create a well designed electrical layout.


Fuse box firewall bulkhead connector assembly used for mockup.

The harness enters the engine space in the same place as the Blazer.Note the valve covers, anyone seeing a nice set of center bolt aluminum valve covers for a 4.3 let me know.

THE CRIMPING TOOL

One important goal of mine was to shorten some of the wires and avoid some bird nests of stock wire under the dash.  Doing some research I discovered GM uses Packard 56, 58 ,59 and Delphi Metri-pack connectors/terminals that you can buy at PCS Connectors. The advantage to using connectors and terminals “to shorten” is pretty obvious: you eliminate the potential of a splice failure; also, it looks much cleaner.

Having the right tool for wire splicing and terminal connectors is a key. I contacted a small company I was an engineer for and borrowed a ratcheting-crimping tool that you can see below. It took only three tries to get the crimping technique mastered, making my wiring appear professional. (crimping tools from PCS)

Shore Patrol Jeeps

• CATEGORIES: Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, GPW (Ford MB), MB • TAGS: .

I was quite surprised yesterday, as I noted in my post related to the Waikiki VJ Day Video, that I spotted a mustard yellow MB with the words “SHORE PATROL” emblazoned across the windshield frame.  Also interesting is the top on this jeep.  See how it appears to go up before it heads back.  I’m wondering if that’s a hard top of some kind?

That lead me on a trek to find any other shore patrol jeep with a color scheme that was NOT a light blue color.  A quick google search of the term “Shore Patrol Jeeps” reveals an endless slew of light blue Jeeps evoking, in my mind, a Navy theme. However, despite my searches, I couldn’t locate anything other than Navy themed or Army Green Shore Patrol Jeeps.

So, to the upper right is the best snapshot I could get of the Waikiki Shore Patrol Jeep, followed by some other Shore Patrols I found around the web.

Here’s the closest example I found to the yellow one. This one has the unusual top:

From Brian’s WWII site we have this one (google says it should be at this link, but I couldn’t find it):

Here’s one from Flickr

Here’s a different angle of the same one from Fotki:

Here’s one from the CJ-3B Page — this time a complete M-38:

Here’s a ‘Shore Patrol’ jeep that’s likely a M-38 with some other parts  (unsure if this was ever a shore patrol jeep):
