Builds: Randy shares his Jeeps, Family & Animals

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Reader Stories

Randy emailed me this morning with some great family pics.  Here’s a little bit about Randy and a variety of pics.  He says we can expect a few irregular reports from the Austin area as he often spots flatfenders around there.

I learned how to drive in a ’48 CJ2A when I was 12 years old and thus started my “addiction” to Willys.  I’m now 54 and still love ’em.  I moved to the Austin TX area a few years back and have a small ranch; So, of course, I knew what I needed in terms of utility vehicles.  I have a ’48 CJ2A that is all original and records for it since 1967.  The hardtop and extended bed are from a company in Houston, both are Koenig. I’ve not seen another Willys with the extended bed
[ED NOTE:  Here’s some info about extended beds from the CJ-3B Page]. I use the ’48 to go to the feed store and drive around town.

My other jeep is a ’54 CJ3B which is non licensed.  It’s a bit rough, but starts and drives great.

I have attached a picture of the Eifel Tower I took a couple years ago in the Crown Room in Paris.  It’s a picture of a picture.

As I was deciding what pics to send I discovered I have MANY pics of different family members, friends, animals and more with a Willys in them.  It seems I just realized my Jeeps are indeed a part of the family. The jeeps earn their keep and are always a hit.  I’ve taught a number of young folks how to drive a standard in these, and hope in some way I have started a passion for Willys as it did for me some 42 years ago!

Here’s Randy’s pic of a pic from Paris:

Builds: Jim finds a Mouse & More

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Reader Stories

Jim, take it away … (thanks for sharing!)

Got a call today.  Guy says,”I hear you like willys jeeps?” Yep, that sounds like me I thought. He said,”I have one here with flat fenders, all original, hasn’t been started in a while, will probably need a battery, some tires, gas.” Sounds like my kinda deal I thought, then I asked the fatal question,”when was it last run running?” “Oh, maybe 30-35 years ago when I was a kid,” he said.

Wow, it had been sitting in the same spot in a field on a fence line for so long that the diffs were touching the ground and part of all 4 rims and tires were 6-8 inches under ground. The 8000 lb warn winch on my trailer wound up pretty damn tight for a few seconds and then the whole jeep “popped” up and out of the ground as if it had sat on a tack!

2 trash bags of old carpet, wood, leaves, clumps of moss (yes, moss) rotted tools, a rusty hunting knife, 3 hornets nest and one poor little very unhappy wet field mouse later [ed note: see last pic]  I found some very decent floor boards, perfect hat channels underneath, factory paint still on the frame, a surprisingly straight body, all stock everything and a super trashed windshield frame, but I have a spare here at the cabin.

The owner said they parked it originally cause it needed a fuel pump; so, what do you want to bet I will be driving this old rig in a few weeks? A lot of fun for an afternoon of flat fender hunting!  Cocktail time to celebrate!

PS. my sincere apologies to the owners of the carwash I spent $10 at to remove the worst of the goo; sorry bout the mess …… serial number CJ2A 211636

Lots of pics of this wagon.

“This is the Willys Jeep that we have for sale. It is a 1951 2WD wagon & it still has it’s original L-Head (Flat head) engine. It has a new hwad gasket & ARP head studs. It also has a slightly more modern carburator. The transmission is the original 3-speed & it is equipped with the optional factory overdrive. The tires are new. The paint looks nice from a reasonable distance (I painted it & I am not a professional by any means) The seats have been redone & so has the headliner. If you are looking for a runnig classic to really turn some heads (& tinker with a bit) – this is it! now keep in mind it’s 57 years old & requires a bit of attention. :)”

1943 CJ-3A (?) Rawlins, Wy $600

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1948_cj2a_rawlinsUPDATE:  The price has dropped to $600.  This is looks like a good price.  It even runs (if you hook up the gas tank).

Either the year or the model is wrong.  I’m gonna guess this is either a highly mashed jeep (maybe a 43 frame with CJ-3a body parts and a CJ-2A windshield) or a 1948-9 CJ-2A.

“1943 cj3a with the orignal 4 cyl f head engine. gas tank is unhooked but it runs if you hook it up again. most mechanical work has been taken care of and it has several new parts. everything other than the suspention is original as far as i can tell.the body needs work and so does the interior, but if your looking for a cool old jeep and a great project this is the jeep for you. if you have any questions feel free to call me at 307-321-0612 I can deliver, but it will cost gas and milage.

Tender Discussion

• CATEGORIES: Unusual, Willys Trucks, Willys Wagons • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE 3: The eWillys Israel bureau is hot on the trail of the ‘Tender’.  Another set of pics was accompanied by the following update.

Here’s what he Googled in Hebrew: “A man named Efraim Eilin had a vision of an Israeli car industry. In 1950 he made partnership with Kaizer Enterprises and in 1951 he opened the Kaizer-Eilin  assembly plant. The plant[S] made more then 100,000 cars [Kaiser Frazer, Dofin Renolt, kontesa , Lark Studibaker…] and at some point the plant export was 28% of all the Israeli exports! I couldn’t  find info on the Willys  except that they made the panel, the wagon and the pick-up [we say: ‘Tender’].  All the body parts were made in Israel in another plant in Israel; so, I guess that the trucks  used the low part of the panel/wagon + special design for the back as an original Kaiser-Eilin. The Willys had 2 engines: 2199 cc 4 cylinder  and 3770 cc 6 c‘”

And here’s a special Willys Police Wagon (here’s the page for our Hebrew readers):

As I note in the comments to this post, a couple days ago I did a number of searches (and found some interesting truck sites that I will include in upcoming posts), but I found no references to the ‘Tender’ or ‘high back’ trucks.  If anyone knows anything about them, please let me know.

• CATEGORIES: Website, Willys Trucks, Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

I’m attempting to find a website that discusses this Willys/Jeep Truck/Van thingy.  My guess, based on our reader from Israel, is that this is an international vehicle.

So far, I have had no luck finding information about it.  However, in the process of my search, I did stumble upon a great website about Trucks:  JeepTruck.com.  There are features, trucks and parts for sale, a comprehensive links page, and more.
