Fire Marshal MB in Korea

• CATEGORIES: Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Old Images

Just a few updates tonight (sat night)

I’m guessing this is a Fire Department (perhaps makeshift) out of Korea.  I found this during an image search, but I could not locate the source.  It looks like a Library of Congress type of image.  If anyone knows of the source, please let me know so I can properly credit it.

1942 MB Frenso, Ca $2500


UPDATE: Dexter was correct … this sports a slat grille.  He also provided some additional info and a pic.

The seller sent the following to Dexter: “This jeep was purchased from cousin in Idaho seven years ago. • It’s been sitting outside, covered, for the past year • The frame number is II3056 [Dexter comment: I see a dash before the 3, but the folks at G503 tell me it’s the 13,506th slattie made] • No glovebox type, with no data plates on the dash • Cousin, Bubba, removed the entire back (With the original WILLYS stamp!), and replaced it with sheet metal • It has body lift • Gas tank moved to the rear seat • He doesn’t want to get rid of it, but his wife has spoken.  The block is cracked.

“This is a 1942 willys jeep in fairly good condition…..the motor in it has a cracked block. it runs but bubbles in the radiator. I have the original flat head four cylinder motor that was smoking when removed probably bad rings. This jeep has been sitting for a while but DMV is current non-op. call anthony at 593-5074 if interested.”

Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art’s 1952 M-38A1

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1, Museums • TAGS: , .

I located a couple good pics of MOMA’s 1952 M-38A1 which was donated by the DaimlerChrysler Corporation Fund. I would suggest calling ahead to make sure this is still on display if you want to see it.  However, the M-38A1 is not the first jeep to be highlighted by MOMA.  In September of 1951, the Museum of Modern Art in New York decided to exhibit iconic automobile design as pure elements of art & design.  One of the eight vehicles chosen was the M-38, with the description as a “sharply rational vehicle”.  You can read more about that at the Jalopy Journal.

This pic is from a snapper of of NYC images for the NYCPIX blog.  There are some good, everyday sort of pics.  If you’ve spent time in NY, you’ll enjoy this site.

This photo is also from a NYC image blog.

Santa favors the Willys MA over the Red Sleigh

UPDATE:  Brendan noted that this is indeed a LOC image. Here is a link to this image and others

I suspect it was just easier to stick the tree in the MA rather than his sleigh?  It’s a great pic.  I found this during an image search, but I could not locate the source.  It looks like a Library of Congress type of image.  If anyone knows of the source, please let me know so I can properly credit it.

This runs.  It looks like a good wind would blow the paint right off of this.

“This is a nice little Flat Fender CJ. Someone went through the running gear a few years ago and it was on the road. It runs good, just put a new battery and fuel pump in it. Brakes are good and I think it will pass inspection as is. The body need some patches. The Plow Hoist in the photo does not come with it.”

1957 FC-150 Mount Vernon, Wa eBay

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

This looks great.

“Wow…’s a very rare and very unique piece of American Automotive History!!!! 1957 Jeep FC-150 4×4 Pickup. This gem is a well-preserved, 2-owner, ultra-low-mile vehicle fresh out of a private collection, available here to the general public for the first time since in was new!!!  The original owner of more than 50 years lived in a remote area of the Northwest and owned 2 vehicles…… air-conditioned Cadillac and, you guessed it, this 1957 Jeep Pickup that he special-ordered and bought brand new. One vehicle he used for his weekly commute to town in the summer, the other, in winter. The Jeep lived a privileged life, clocking just a tad over 13K original miles on the odometer!!!!!! The truck has been regularly maintained over its entire life, and looks, runs and drives great. The Hurricane 4-cylinder motor starts easy and runs like a watch. It is easy to drive, feels safe and secure and the cab-forward design gives the driver great visibility and excellent maneuverability. A very rare, very collectible vehicle……and a very rare opportunity……don’t miss out!!! Call today! Tel: 360-416-4995 …”

1962 CJ-5 “Yolanda” Fort Worth, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

The seller notes the paint job fits the jeeps name “Yolanda” (apparently, it is a long story … lol)

“1962 Willys Jeep.  Starts and runs as-is.  Recent work includes new clutch, rebuilt carburetor, new mud grip tires on five original wheels that have been sandblasted, primed and painted.  New seat frames have been fabricated, one additional passenger seat frame included.  Good compressions on all cylinders.  Transfer case shift mechanism is tight and hard to shift; needs work.  Includes original front bumper wench.  Windshield and spare tire rack included (not shown) I rate this Jeep as a good restoration candidate; I just don’t have the time or motivation to rebuild it.  Custom paint suits her name “Yolonda” (it’s a long story).  She needs a good home and significant TLC.”

1956 CJ-3B Fire Jeep — Blandford & Area Fire Rescue, NS, Canada

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: .

In 1965, this jeep was donated by the Hubbards Fire Department to a sub-department volunteer fire unit call the Blandford & Area Fire Rescue Unit, located on the southwest side of the Aspotogan Peninsula, Luenburg Co, Nova Scotia, Canada, at 30 Fire Hall Rd. I wish there were more pics!

From the website, “The first fire truck was a 1956 Willys Jeep, donated by the Hubbards Fire Department.  Due to its limited water tank capacity of 200 gallons, a water tanker was also needed.    A 1947 Ford with an oil tank was added to the fleet before year end, this also being donated from the Hubbards department.  Records show that a new portable pump was purchased for $600.95 with monies raised by door to door canvassing, raffles, and bake sales.  Additional equipment was purchased to outfit the new department and to make modifications to the old school house building to house the “new” trucks.  With the support of a community, the men of the department answered a total of eight alarms their first year, all of which were fires.”

Malabar Farm’s CJ-2A in Lucas, Ohio

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Museums • TAGS: , .

Bob forwarded me a pic of a CJ-2A from the Malabar Farm Historic Landmark in the Ohio State Park System for the museum series.

Bob wrote, “Here’s a shot of the Jeep they have down at Malabar Farm near Mansfield, Ohio. Every Sept there is a small gathering of Jeeps there. Louis Bromfield, the property’s former owner, had several Jeeps on the farm during his lifetime. He used them to get around the farm, along with his dog, to supervise farm operations. As a side note, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall were married in the main house on the farm on May 21, 1945.”

1942 Slat Grille MB Lodi, Ca **SOLD**



“The Jeep runs great. I’ve had this for several months, and it was (and is), a fun little toy to drive — definitely a head-turner! Just a few days ago, the Jeep experienced a problem of getting out of 1st gear. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. I’m not a mechanic, so I had a someone do a visual inspection, and he informed me that the transmission will need to be dropped and checked out.”

Below are the pics at the time of sale.  You can see some pics from when this flattie was first purchased a few months earlier here.
