Videos: Willys Overland – Workhorse of the Industry Part 2

• CATEGORIES: videos • TAGS: .

This is part two of a two part marketing video produced, I think, by Willys Overland about their products. Not only does it cover the jeep, but it also covers, particularly in part 2, the other 4wd vehicles such as the Wagon, the Truck and shows some of the farming implements available.

Video: Early Jeep Test

• CATEGORIES: videos • TAGS: .

This is one of the more amazing videos. It’s short. Watch the end of it closely, as the driver escapes the jeep just in time before the flat fender topples on top of him.

1944 MB Aloha, Or $2000


The seller lists the good, bad and ugly about this jeep.  Visit the Ad to learn more.

“This 1944 Willys MB Jeep is a great project car. It ran for me throughout high-school (1995-1997), but it’s been garaged for the last decade and no longer starts. I just tried to get it going, and with a jump, it rolls over but likely needs a carb-kit/cleaning to get the fuel going. In 1944, they didn’t make them complex, just durable. Anyone with a week of evenings could likely get this running….”

2008 PNW4DA Racing

• CATEGORIES: Features, Racing, videos • TAGS: , .

I was searching to see if anyone posted videos from the PNW4WDA 2009 Convention, but haven’t seen any yet.  I did find this nicely organized collection of racing images from 2008 that I hadn’t seen.  So, I thought I’d share them.  Note the audio has been disabled.  I have to wonder exactly how they track down audio like that given the millions of videos uploaded vs. the relatively low number of hits on this video.

Playing with different technologies


As you probably noticed, I’ve been testing out some different technologies, like the javascript slider on the front page.   Unfortunately, the menus don’t roll over it, so that’s not going to work.  I’ll be mucking with this stuff the next few days, so bear with me.

I’ve also noticed that there’s a number of issues with IE-6 with this design (drop down menu problems and sidebar issues for starters), so I may do a total redesign over labor day weekend.

It’s true that I could use a development site, but what fun would that be.

Diamond Plating Question

• CATEGORIES: Features, Parts

Several of our finest in Blue from Arizona read ewillys daily.  One of the readers asked about diamond plating for old flatties.  I can’t say I was much help, but maybe some of you have a suggestion?

Mail Jeep WW II Replica McDonough, Ga **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

“The “outside photos” shown are before the stenciling was done. Also, most of the undercarriage has been painted OD green to match the rest of the vehicle. I have for sale a 1974 RIGHT HAND DRIVE Jeep DJ5C which has been chopped and transformed into a WWII replica. It is probably 75% complete. The wiring harness has been ripped out and needs replaced. It was running INCREDIBLY strong just three months ago when the wiring was removed….”

1942 MB East Bay, Ca $1000


1942_mb_eastbayHere’s a fixer upper.  It looks like it has a roll cage from either a CJ-5 or CJ-3B.

“I have a 1942 Willy’s jeep. The body has no dent, it has rust, and has been sitting for years. It’s a real “fix me upper”.. Everything is attached except it lacks a gas tank. I have the title and pink slip to it as well, along with all the original paper work. I also have the data plates for this vehicle. This would be an excellent project for someone with the time and money to restore it.”
