1948 CJ-2A Glens Falls, Ny $550


Given the running gear, there appears to be some value.  Not a whole lot though.

“1948 Willys for parts or restoration. Engine/drivetrain all there.(Got engine running for around a min. a year ago and it sounds like it needs an engine rebuild) DOES NOT RUN CURRENTLY. FRAME has crack in it that and looks like a previous owner bolted plates to try to repair frame (see pic). Has passenger seat as well. Floor pans pretty much gone as well as seen in pics.
Call 518-eightfivenine-sixsixfour8 or email me about questions or if interested no spammers..
Selling due to two many car projects going on and unfortunatly not enough money to restore. $550.00 or best offer.
Thanks, Steve”

CJ-5 Surrey

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys • TAGS: .

Speaking of unique Surreys, Mike wrote the following Comment:

“Back in 1962, One of my dad’s favorite hangouts, Lee’s tavern on Crooks Ave. in Clifton, NJ bought a special order CJ5 with a pink surrey fringe top and matching upholstery. It was the talk of the town. This Jeep was a double twist on the phrase “special order”. It was a first generation Tuxedo Park model with the featured color scheme of white body with red grille and red wheels, along with the surrey top and seat covers which were installed over stock upholstery at the factory. The local legend story at the time was; He had to wait 6 months for delivery.”

So, I spent some time searching for a CJ-5 Surrey picture. I didn’t find any real ones, but I did find one toy:  A CJ-5 toy from 1960. (stock #875 3/4 down the page).

Update on Sam’s Bolt-on Rack and Pinion for early jeeps

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features, Tips & Tricks • TAGS: .

Since sam last reported about the prototype bolt-on rack and pinion system for early jeeps, he has made a few changes to improve the ability to install the system onto jeeps that have been lifted.  He reports that the system is installed on a number of jeeps without any issues.  The system dramatically improves steering at low speeds and at highway speeds.

Finished Install before New Exhaust:

Here is close up view of drag link end:

Wagner-Trac on a CJ-2A

• CATEGORIES: Features, Tires and Rims, Unusual, videos

Glenn spotted these Wagner-Tracs on a CJ-2A.  While it has a CJ-2A body, this is probably  a CJ-5 or CJ-3B frame, because the tracks require a wheel base of exactly 81 inches.  The tracks are one of six produced and bolt onto the axles.

According to the information at the video’s homepage:

“The Tracks were manufactured by a company called “A. F. Wagner Industries Inc.” of concord California. They were made sometime during the mid 60s and there was only 6 sets made and were apparently expensive and thus may be the reason there were so few made. They are called “Wagner-Trac” and were made specifically as a set of tank tracks for a jeep with a wheelbase of 81 inches. The wheelbase is not adjustable so the wheelbase is critical and just like a tank you would have to install turning brakes to drive the Jeep because the steering is null and void as soon as you bolt them on. They are all steel construction so were probably designed for offroad only.”

1943 GPW Central Wisconsin $7500


This appears solid.

“1943 JEEP
I’ll put a short dissertation together.
It is a 1943 GPW Ford Jeep. Bought it in Colorado in the mid 70s and did a minor restoration on it ,it ended up in central Wi in a garage for 40 years.
Went through the drive train etc. It runs very nice, all gearing is good,the body had some rust in the bed behind the seats so that was removed and installed checker plate. The job was done right. Ther is NO rust on this jeep.
It still has the 6 volt system as well as the Willys 4 cyl flathead engine. Runs smooth and quiet It has black out lights in the front along with the blackout dash light switch. All dash instruments are stock.
I have a fair amount of extra parts like a couple of “jerry” fuel tanks, a NEW water pump, stock seat and CJ2 grille, front drive shaft etc.
I live in central Wi
Now for the not so good news but honesty anyway. The Wi. Title calls it a 1947 but as you can see it has no tailgate, 47s did someone at the DMV screwed up and was never caught but the serial # is correct as seen on the frame. Qs just ask

1964 CJ-3Bish San Fernando Valley, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2700.

(01/30/2011) I thought this hood solution was an unusual way to deal with the longer frame.  I’m wondering if the frame is from a CJ-6?

“Selling my 1964 Jeep Willy X Flat Fender CJ-3A that has a new 390 V8 Offenhauser Engine. The engine has about 15,000 miles on it. It is a beast of an engine. You may want this jeep just for the Engine and parts to put into something you’re working on. this engine would be great for any hot rod or racing vehicle. The jeep is in great running condition and has alot of power. A great off road vehicle. It also looks really cool and has custom body work. I bought this jeep with the intent of driving it and fixing it up, but i haven’t had the money to do alot, i’ve done a few things, but it’s time to get something different to drive. I don’t want to put any more money into this jeep and second I need to get a different car. I have a family now and need something with doors lol. This jeep has power steering, tilt wheel, new dash with new dials, 3-speed transmission, locking hubs, nice rims with Pirelli tires. I’m asking for $2700 or best offer. I am also willing to take a vehicle trade. If you have something, show me and we’ll go from there. Cash is preferred though. Available to see anytime. Msg me for more info. Will answer back immediately.”
