Tall Flattie Project Palmdale, Ca **SOLD**

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

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $1500

You might have to purchase a ladder for this flattie.

“Willy jeep on 44 inch Super Swamper tires. Runs and drives, but radiator has not been moved to the rear. There’s no rooom in the front for the radiator. This is a project that needs work and is certainly not ready to be driven on road anytime soon. The Willys sits on a early 80’s Bronco frame that has been shortened. Lift is from a IFS ford. Runs good and no backyard custom suspension, this is basicly a bronco with an expensive aftermarket lift, so it will drive good too.  Swampers are in great shape with more than 3/4 tread.  I have a tilt column from a late model caprice, ready to install. I am willing to part out this thing if i get some serious offers. Or if someone wants to trade the swampers for some HUGE military tires i’d probably finish this project. Or a set of Rockwell axles ? Chevy Dana 60 ? I’d trade the whole truck for some Super Swamper Irok tires and wheels size 39.5 or 40 for a 20 inch rim, either chrome or polished, forged wheels.”

Coast Guard Anti-Saboteur Patrol

• CATEGORIES: Features, Library Collections, War Images • TAGS: .

I haven’t seen too many Coast Guard Willys Pics.  According to the Library of Congress, here’s one from April 1943.

The Library of Congress’ caption to this photo is:  Coast Guard anti-saboteur patrol. Vital cargoes of war supplies for America’s far-flung battle lines must also be protected on the docks and piers from enemy attempts at sabotage. The Coast Guard now uses jeeps with armed Coast Guardsmen maintaining vigilant waterfront patrols.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $77,000.

This was for sale as late as Sept 5, 2009 for $35,000.

“This is Red Skelton’s personal Surrey. With 14,000 original miles, it has just completed a body-off frame restoration. There is much memorabilia that goes with this Surrey and photo documentation of the restoration and Red’s journey.

This darling little Surrey was previously owned by the legendary comedian Red Skelton. Most of us can relate to one of his characters like Freddie the Freeloader or Clem Kadiddlehopper, for in each of his characters was a bit of each of us. Red Skelton’s Willys DJ-3A Surrey Gala has just completed a meticulous 10-year, body-off frame, complete nut and bolt restoration. The finished product is beyond stunning. Included with the sale of this Surrey are many pieces of Red Skelton memorabilia, like the Freddie the Freeloader vest used during the Red Skelton Hour on CBS TV during the 1960’s, with certificate of authenticity. Red was also quite an artist and included are three Red Skelton prints, the “Girl Clown”, “Floral Bouquet” and “Old Glory”. There is also a limited edition “Clown with Candy Cane” painting with certificate of authenticity. Also included is a 13-page binder of photographs documenting the entire Surrey restoration. The binder chronicles the life and times of Red Skelton’s comedy career. There are many fun stories and photos that invite you into the humorous life of Red Skelton. There are copies of Red Skelton’s California titles and a note from Red’s widow, Lothian Skelton, describing the Surrey and how much Red loved it. All of this goes with the sale of the Surrey.”

Art’s 1946 CJ-2A Fire Willys and Trailer

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, trailer • TAGS: , .

Bruce surprised me today with some pics of a Fire Jeep.  He noted that after reading the section that includes Fire Jeeps, he thought I might be interested in seeing a couple pics of Art’s Jeep.  After reviewing the pics, I asked him for permission to publish them.  Bruce was kind enough to contact Art, who in turn has been nice enough to let me share them with you.  If you haven’t seen Art’s Jeep on the CJ-3B page or at one of the Willy’s reunions, then you are in for a treat.

One of the more interesting factoids I ran across while doing a search for Art’s Jeep on the internet was a discussion on the CJ-2A Page Forum regarding Bill’s effort to include Art’s Jeep in a Calendar of Fire Vehicles.  It turns out that Daimler Chrysler wants a piece of any Calendar pie for showing a Jeep Grille (specifically, a $500 guarantee and 12% royalties).

So, that got me thinking. What about Jeeps on pay websites?  Could Daimler, for example, begin asking for royalties from a site like the Jeep Forum, which has paying members, on which plenty of images of a Jeep Grille exist?  At this point, my opinion is they can’t, because they haven’t enforced their rights (if they even have them) to do so.  But, I’m gonna research this more.

Anyway, here’s some pics of Art’s Willys.  Thanks for sharing Art 🙂

1964 CJ-6 & 1950 Bantam Trailer Holland, MI **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6, trailer • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  Was $8000. **SOLD**

For sale, the SS Dutch. Finding this jeep and trailer for sale was a real treat.  First of all, Mike has created a well documented build of both the trailer and the jeep.  Second, the changes and thought processes have been documented on two separate blogs (see post below), so there’s plenty to review.  Third, he’s got the best site I have run across related to CJ-6s.

Mike writes on a recent post, “It’s not without a bit of sadness and trepidation that I post this.  After 6 years of ownership and a whole lot of blood, sweat and gears I’ve arrived at the decision to put both SSDutch—a 1964 CJ6—and my 1950 Bantam Jeep trailer up for sale.

Mostly this is due to our recent decision to go on the road for a year but I’ve also noticed that I’ve had a lack of interest in working on it for some time now.  In preparing for our trip the idea of just having the Jeep, trailer, and related piles of parts gone is more peace-inducing than the notion of having to arrange storage for all of it.”

The MB Chapel

I’ve seen a few pics that show the jeep as a temporary place for worship.  This is another image from Roy O. Bingham.  The Library of Congress reports that in this pic, “Members of the Tenth Mountain Division, 605th Artillery Battalion, attend a Protestant Easter religious service at Rocca Pitigliano, Italy, conducted by Chaplain William H. Bell. In the foreground, four men bow their heads together. Corporal Ralph Squires sits at a portable organ and two soldiers face the Chaplain who stands in front of his jeep draped with a white cloth in use as an altar for a small crucifix.”

The body has some rust, due to living on the Oregon coast for a time. But it all can be fixed. She has a Warn over drive, professionally tinted glass, Boyd wheels and Warn hubs that you swap for off road use or hwy use. New MagnaFlow exhaust from the manifolds back. I have all the paperwork for her that came from the man that did the restoration before I got her.She has back seats as well.
