1948 CJ-2A Plymouth, WI **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $16,000.

The seller claims this is an AgriJeep.  In his book Preproduction Civilian Jeeps, Frederic Coldwell makes a convincing argument that despite filing for the trademark Agrijeep, and the use of the name Agrijeep on the CJ-1, Willys Overland quickly abandoned that trademark to focus in on the trademark Jeep for CJ-2’s and CJ-2A’s.  Note: there might be some debate to this based on some of the websites I reviewed – some believe the CJ-2 is an Agrijeep as well.  While I’m not in a position to provide any input into that debate, I would still review this seller’s claim cautiously.

“Rare 1948 Agri-Jeep, power take off, 3 point hitch. Only three prototypes made. Factory aluminum plate is 2 inch x 3 inch on the frame in back”

David Boyd, Jr’s Willys Painting

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings

David Boyd, Jr,  is a high school art teacher and self-syndicated editorial cartoonist, but also describes himself as a painting addict.  In his painting titled ‘South Georgia Willys Jeep’, shown below, which has already sold, the artist appears to have captured what I think is an early CJ-2a, a claim I make based solely on the turn signals.   Here is a gallery of his non-jeep paintings hosted at dailypainters.com.   You can email David @ rdboyd2@mac.com.  David has another Willys painting that he completed a few years ago.   Great work David!

1937 Ford House Car — an early motorhome

• CATEGORIES: Unusual

Dave forwarded me some information about this unique Ford House Car.  A quick search revealed this website with a full collection of images by the previous owner of the vehicle (he sold it in 2001 according to the site).  I’ve included a pic below and some info below.  Thanks for sharing Dave, it’s cool!

“One of only six said to have been made per year in the mid-’30s at the Ford Plant in St. Paul, Minnesota, according to an article on this car in a 1993 “Old Cars” magazine article (see link below). Very few others–perhaps none–remain on the road, and certainly not in such amazing original condition. (The only other known example that I heard of was supposedly housed in the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. But that turned out to be an early 1920s Model T conversion, the curator told me. He said he’d never seen anything like this ’37!).”

Man Made rebuilds an offroad car (well, technically it’s a car/boat)

• CATEGORIES: Unusual, Website

Simon forwarded me a link to a show called Man Made. I haven’t seen an episode yet, but the video introduction below looks intriguing.

Simon reports, “I’ve only seen two episodes but its about a guy who locates barn finds and restores them for selling at auction. So far its covered an amphicar and Camero (no jeeps!) but its a great program to watch and see how a professional goes about restoring classic cars. He’s not been so successful on the profit front mind you – the amphicar didn’t sell and he lost money on the Camero”

Wanted: Willys Truck Expert

• CATEGORIES: wanted

This truck owner says he has the 401st 4wd truck ever made.

“Is there someone around who used to work at the Willys Overland plant in Toledo that could answer some questions? I have a ’47 Willys Overland pickup truck that I want to restore to its original condition and want to do it correctly. It was the 401st 4wd pickup built. I’m trying to find information on available paint colors, proper air cleaner, upholstery choices, etc. It’s easy to modify an old vehicle, and I’ll do that with something else. I want to see this one done right. I’m sure there are some proud retirees in the area that remember building these unique historical vehicles. Thanks. Steve”

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.

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 🙂
