No Updates Tonight (Monday the 7th)


I’ve been in the garage all evening swapping leaves on my rear springs to get the rear end to sit at the right height.  After several swaps I finally got the body to a level spot.  Whew.

Unusual CJ-5 Rear Seat Mod

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features

I was on my way to Jalopy Jungle (got some new springs — but that write-up must wait) in Nampa when I passed by this CJ-5 sitting outside an auto salvage shop in Meridian.  As soon as I saw it, I made a quick u-turn and snapped some pics.  The CJ-5 itself appears in stock condition with a solid body and no engine. There was no for sale sign and am not sure what it being done to it.

The rear seat itself it something I’ve never seen.  The tail gate still works and there is storage area under the back seat.

The Commando C104

• CATEGORIES: Features, Jeepster

A reader had asked me about the use of Inline 6s on early Jeepsters, so I found the answer on Wikipedia.  I left the page open while I went to lunch and when i came back, I noticed something I hadn’t notice earlier, a picture of the Commando C104 and it’s unusual grille.  I was used to seeing the Commando with the standard jeep/tines grille.  But, the 20,000 or so C104s that were built have a full-size grille that, at first glance, looked to me like it was borrowed from a Bronco.

Anyway, maybe you all knew this, but it was a surprise to me.  Below are some pics that show the evolution of the front of a Jeepster/Commando.

1948 2WD 4 cyl Willys Jeepster (aka VJ-2):

1949 2WD 4 & 6 cyl Willys Jeepster (aka VJ-3):

1950 2WD 4cyl & 6cyl Willys Jeepster (1951 Jeepsters are left overs from the 1950 production year).  These were also known as the VJ-3 463 (4cyl) and VJ-3 663 (6cyl) for part of the year and then the model was changed to VJ-473 (4cyl)  and VJ-673 (6cyl):

1966-1971 Kaiser Jeep’s “Jeepster Commando” Model C-101 (4wd).  There were several different models, but they all appear to have the same front as best as I can tell.

2 1972 Commando C-104s:  The top Commando has a chromed front and the bottom Commando’s front has been modified (and is for sale now).

1946 VEC CJ-2A Superior, AZ **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2200.

“OK. Here is the situation. We had this Jeep sold twice before but the buyers backed out. The reason is because we can’t find the title and the registration doesn’t match with the MVD records. The new owner would have to do an abandoned vehicle search and get a new title that way. We do not have the time to research all of this so we are willing to let it go at a cheaper price. This Jeeps blue book value is over $6000.

1946 Willy’s CJ2A Jeep. All original with added top. 6 volt system. Flathead 4-cylinder. RARE 3 speed on the column shifter. Original seat frames included. 16 in wheels. Been in the same family it’s entire life, 3rd owner in family. Spare tire. We started it a few days ago and drove it around but it does need a little TLC. More pictures available. Price is $2200.”

Some Great Old Photos at

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images • TAGS: .

At, Casey has uploaded 20 images from the late 40s / early 50s.  Several of the images have also been loaded at the website and a thread has popped up around them. A video was also uploaded (see below) that shows early color footage of the Yakima Ridge Runners (from Yakima, Washington) playing in what appears to be the Little Naches River and shows them traveling over the Naches Trail (you can also see video excerpts from Exploration Northwest which discusses the trail).

Below is a small version of one of the pics at JpZombie.  In this pic, you can see on the sign ‘Wally Klingele’, who was one of the founding members of the Ridge Runners.  Some of the pics at JpZombie appear to be pics capturing the Life Magazine Folks who put together these classic videos (ridge runner video 1 & ridge runner video 2).

Porcellana Maua Jeep Tea Cups Phoenixville, Pa eBay


Thanks to Dave (Hog) for pointing out this unusual item — Jeep Tea cups.  First off, the price on these seems nuts –$9999 — seriously?  Maybe I just don’t know the market for tea cups.  Also, the seller claims these are WWII tea cups, but, based on the jeep, those are Korean War Cups at the earliest.

“World War II Porcellana Maua Jeep Tea Cups and Saucers. Owned by United States Rear Admiral Raymond Schneider who was stationed in Hawaii during the attack on Pearl Harbor. Mint condition.”
