Broken Down Heroes Calendar

• CATEGORIES: Vendors

Speaking of Bob, he has created a calendar he calls Broken Down Heroes.  You can see some of his images here http://www.ewillys.com/?p=14615 and more here.  You can get the calendar from a variety of sources, including Calendar.com.

The images span a range of vehicles likely trapped in their final resting place.  Of course, there are a few jeeps sprinkled about his photographs.

1947 CJ-2A Middle Grove, Ny $500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Unusual

1947_cj2a_middlegroveUPDATE:  Price dropped to $500 — I love this one.

(08/30/09) What’s this chain drive? There’s no transfercase.  I’ve not seen anything like it.

“1947 Willys Jeep. Fold down windshield frame (Has Willys Script) . Has a chain drive set up on transmission. Full time 4 wheel drive. 16″ Wheels. Has custom foolproof brake setup on transmission, instead of on the wheels. Has a rebuilt 1978 Ford 2.3L 4cylander. I dont think it has been fired since rebuild becuase it has no spark. I Believe it needs a new distributer. Has VW radiator with electric fan. Nice swivel bucket seats. Tub is solid. Everything has been reinforced. I bought this from an old master mechanic that did alot of work to it, and then it sat in his garage for many years, without ever being run. No paperwork. DOES NOT RUN! A GREAT PROJECT OR ALOT OF GOOD PARTS!! Needs to be finshed, i have too many other projects. It would be a great hunting rig when running. Better/ Stronger than a fourwheeler, and still small enough to fit on trails. $500 FIRM. No Tire Kickers. Call 882-1505 if intrested”

3 Jeeps = GPW, CJ-3A, M-38 Davenport, IA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, GPW (Ford MB), M-38

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

The GPW looks in the best condition, followed by the M-38 (incorrectly listed as a CJ-3A) and then the CJ-3A.

“I am selling my hobby because of a line of duty accident that has left me with no other option. these jeeps were bought at an estate auction and they only have a bill of sale, because they have always been government owned before the last owner. The CJ3A was started on a off frame overhaul and the body was set back on to sell. The GPW is as I purchased it they both ran and drove off the trailer. the last one is just parts. thank you for your interest, this pains me to do this but I have no other choice.”

My Build: Seat Covers

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

One thing I did not get with my $20 seats were seat covers (here’s another link on how they mount).  Kim offered to sew these together for me and, since she’s right here, I could keep my eye on them as they were being made.  These were sewed from the heaviest, nicest seat vinyl I could find from Beverly Fabrics.  Best of all, it was 50% off.

The Prototype, which is on the passenger seat, could use a little adjustment still, but the second one turned out great.  Both just need some rider time to get stretched and pressed against the seat so they will form more closely to the seats.
