Finding Virginia: Adventures Along the Rocky Trail of Life

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit, Books, Features

I am proud to announce that “Finding Virginia” is now for sale at CreateSpace.  It has been the culmination of a year’s worth of writing and editing (and 46 years of living).  Please shamelessly encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to purchase this book.   Give it as a present to your spouse (really, they will enjoy it), your kids, other jeep lovers, car lovers, or whomever you know.  It is also useful for filling spaces in bookshelves.

What’s the book about?  
It’s about jeeps, love, the history of the jeep, love lost, the San Juan Islands, my dad’s health fight, how to get kicked out of college, how to  grow up in a jeep club, how not to sail, how to get stuck in the woods, cooking, my thoughts on a variety of subjects, and the reasons why I started eWillys.

Who’s the target audience?  
Readers of eWillys are  first and foremost the target.  People who like adventure and travel should enjoy it too.  Women especially enjoy the ‘love’ story aspect.  People who are frustrated with the economy will, I believe, relate to my frustrations with it too.

The book can be ordered through CreateSpace and, later, through Amazon, though Amazon pays me less.  The price is $18.39.  If you want a signed copy, I will need to order some books, sign them and then mail them to you.  You can email me for more info — and put “signed copy” in the subject line.  These will cost a little more due to the cost of me shipping to you.  I will take a check or paypal as payment.

I am willing to both sign books and attend signings.  I can even bring Biscuit if necessary, depending on the weather and distance.

1962 Wagon Gretna, Ne **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Dan spotted this stock Wagon with low mileage.

“Extremely rare and impossible to find in this condition.  This was my dad’s Willy’s and he has had it parked since December of 1982 covered and taking shelter in a barn in rural western Nebraska.

Super Hurricane 6 Cylinder, 3 Speed Manual Trans, 2 Stick transfer case, 50K original miles.

We made sure the motor was not sized up, but that’s as far as we got. I don’t know if it runs, but we hooked a battery up and all the lights seem to work right. The brakes are not working either. It will need to be transported to your location.

I acquired it from him with the thoughts of a 4 cylinder diesel conversion, as I own and operate a diesel repair shop near Omaha, Nebraska. We have continued to store the wagon here at my shop for the past couple years and I have lost interest in the project.

there is virtually no rust on the body and very minimal surface rust on parts of the undercarriage. This is about as clean as they come for a 62, but its not perfect. Its a 50 year old truck that has been sitting for almost 30 years.

I’m no expert on these units, so if you have any specific questions – please give me a call or send me an email.  I have more pictures, but these are the best ones I have at the moment.”

WILLYS JEEP CJ-3A home made WOODY, flat fender, old car photo 4″ x 6″

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Wood bodies • TAGS: , .

Bidding starts at $1.99.

“Beautiful new professional print (4″ X 6”) from a old 35 mm slide (KODACHROME TRANSPARENCY, no date imprinted) of a WILLYS JEEP CJ-3A (I think) with a HOMEMADE WOODIE BODY . Neat looking Willys Jeep with a wooden enclosure over the driver/occupant compartment. Don’t know the year for sure. No idea where or when the picture was taken. Written on the slide is, “Feb 1952”. Much better than scan, crisp and clear. Any distortion or glare is from my digital camera. Ruler does not show up on actual photo.

Please note, my prints are not made from a home computer, as some have questioned, they are printed by “Denver Digital Imaging Center” a division of “The Slideprinter” in Denver, Colorado U.S.A. From their web site: “For 33 years The Slideprinter has set the standard in making prints from transparencies… We are still the experts at making beautiful prints from slides…”

1942 Slat Grille MB Austin, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Looks nice.

This is not a replica Jeep.  It is a restored original, numbers matching, 4 cyl, 60 hp, 134 ci L-head (Go-Devil) engine.  Early SLAT GRILLS are unique as they have no glove box, they have a round muffler, The original air cleaner is known as an oil bath air cleaner.  It has hard rubber and 3/4 in rope hood bumpers, solid wheels, three bolt spare tire carrier, no blackout driving lights, no gas can holder, makers name is embossed on the rear panel and a slat grill on the willys.  As noted by the serial number this Jeep is one of the last SLAT GRILLS.  Only 200 slat grills are estimated to have survived through 2006, according to “Army Motors”, the official magazine of the Military Vehicle Preservation Assoc.  The frame and body parts are all original.

The wheels are not “Combat Wheels”, but civilian wheels. “Combat Wheels” were “Not of Issue” on prototype Jeeps until S/N 125700.  The reason being, Willys was in the automotive business prior to building “1/4 Ton Utility Trucks.”  To meet the demands of the government contract, they had to bid the entire jeep at under $400.00 per unit.  To stay under budget, they sold themselves Willys automobile wheels in the very early production (VEP JEEP) versions. 

Jeeps were notorious for not stopping very well so I installed a set of 1954 Ford brakes and pads to make it safer on the street.

I also converted the original voltage regulator/electrical system to a modern day 12 volt electronic ignition system for added dependability.

The last Willys SLAT GRILL was S/N 125807; this is S/N 124833 and was devivered to the US Army on March 5, 1942.  Frame off restorationwas completed in 2009 and she has been the star of hanger dances, parades, Veterans Day Events, air shows and USO shows.  It is a show vehicle, not a ramble through the bushes and the brambles jeep.  The mainenance manual is in English and Russian.  It is “period correct” complete with a 48  star flag, all canvas top, shovel and Axe attached to the drivers side and a copy of an M! automatic carbile for the dash.”
