1953 CJ-3B Sauk Rapids, MN **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5900

(03/10/09) Here’s a great looking CJ-3B.  I’d like to see some more pics of it.

“Willys Jeep CJ-3B , Rebuilt Original 4 cylinder Drivetrain, Original 6 volt elec. System. Added 6 volt electric fuel pump. many new parts and new tires. It’s been in my family for over 40 years. 37,000 Miles, always kept indoors. My Mechanic says it needs to be driven more and I don’t have the time anymore for play. Email any questions you may have by replying or leave a phone number. I believe this is an ideal candidate for a total restoration to its original military appearance, which would at the least double it’s value, by ebay research.”

Hill Climbing in Canada — From

• CATEGORIES: Features, Website

I have to say I’m a fan of Canada and Canadians.  Growing up in Seattle, Canada was only a 3 hour drive away, so I’ve crossed the border many times.  On the other hand, the Canadians keep sending me back … I don’t know what that’s about …

When I was 20, I had an opportunity to work in the San Juan Islands for a couple years, at the north part of San Juan Island itself at Roche Harbor (map).  Many Canadians boated over to enjoy Roche’s hospitality, perhaps as many as half the tourists were Canadian.  Because I had friends with boats, I had the opportunity to boat across Haro Strait and visit Victoria, BC, Canada.

There are four things I know about Victoria from personal experience:  1) The Royal BC Museum was a great place to visit; 2) There used to be a great knife store downtown that gave good discounts to chefs (I still have a couple of those knives); 3) There are places to drink in Victoria (which for a newly minted 21 year old was pretty fun); and 4) There were some very nice strips clubs downtown (which for a newly minted 21 year old … well, you get the picture).

I’ve also spent time in Vancouver.  During one memorable, well mostly memorable, experience, I attended the 1986 World Expo (and it turns out countries still hold world expos — the 2010 Expo is in Shanghai, China), which took place at the downtown facilities which held the recent Winter Olympic Games.  Me and 2 of my friends trekked up to the ’86 expo, without hotel reservations of course; instead, we spent two nights camped out in Vancouver.  The first night was on some land being developed right near downtown.  We just set up the tent, and jumped in (and a whole lot of traffic woke us up early the next morning).  The second night we found a walking trail a little farther out of downtown and jumped in the tent.  Oh, to be young again ….

With these thoughts in mind, I decided to do a search of flatties and Canada and happened across the website. After some looking around, I found a photo gallery, where I came across this image, posted by “waggone”.  I personally love to see those desert dogs reaching for the sky!

3 Jeeps, a Jeepster, and a Trailer Central Washington

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Jeepster

UPDATE:  The m-38 is still available, but I don’t know about the rest.

I’ve seen this Jeepster for sale, but other items haven’t been listed.  I am wondering if the  ‘M-38’ actually is an old MB with a replacement body.

1. 48 Jeepster, runs and has a L head engine. Most miles are towed since previous owner towed it to parades for 50 years. Needs right interior and some body work. $4500 The Jeepster is a driver and I drive it a few times a month.
2. Jeep project. CJ2A. Frame has had some work but needs brakes rebuilt. Engine was supposed to be rebuilt but need new cam. But its been painted nice. Has a decent body with just a piece that needs replace in tool box under the passenger seat and some minor dings smoothed out. Has nice windshield, hood and grille. I have 16″ wheels that need new tires but has tires on it now that are 15 inch to roll it around. Needs driver seat. I have everything else to put it together including two good fenders. $2000.
3. Project jeep that has engine that turns free by hand but missing starter and other external engine parts. Has windshield and grille now and needs front end work. Comes with a project jeep that the front frame broke off and needs welded on along with axles and other spare parts worth a lot. And also comes with a body that needs some welding. It was cut in half and stitched back together. $600
4. M38 with 302 that runs. Needs master cylinder installed and will run, but body needs welding since the guy who had it just fiberglassed it and bondo over that. So weld it back and its ready for the hill. It has a M38 hard top with doors. And M38 grille now too. Radiator needs installed. $1800 with a title but an error was made and the title says 43 instead of 53.
5. and last I have a trailer with data plates that was a fire dept pump trailer so has two holes that were in the side for hoses that are plugs and need welding. No lunette or landing gear or title. $800″

The Olson’s Ice Racing Jeep

I ran across JP Magazine’s feature about the Olson’s ice racing jeep “Black Ice” today.  There are a variety of interesting and unusual ideas implemented in this custom rig that could probably be used for road, trail and off-road racing applications.  It’s a fun Jeep to check out.

Learn much more about this vehicle at JP Magazine and view many more pictures there, too.  Here are a couple images:

Montana Overland — Home of the Jeep Ranch


To my surprise, while browsing the internet I ran across a Jeep Salvage yard in Montana today.  Montana Overland sits on 20 acres in Plains, Montana, a town which, ironically, does not appear to be on the plains of Montana, but, instead, is nestled within the mountains.  Montana Overland specializes in “hard-to-find parts for your Jeep Willys wagons and pickups from 1946 through 1988“.  So, if you are looking for wagon or pickup parts, you might try them.

They also have a variety of vehicles for sale and  have an inventory of parts.

For example, here is a FC-170 flatbed for $1200, though it appears they may accept a lower offer.
