Some Updates …

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit, Builds, Features

For the Fourth of July, I celebrated by heading back to the formerly snow bound roads near Boise’ only ski area, Bogus Basin.  As you can see in this pic, the snow is gone (see snow pics here), the mountains are now in bloom, and more progress was made.  More on that tomorrow ….

A 1950 CJ-3A: Today, Darrel had to talk to me.  So he stopped next to me, while I waited at a stop light, rolled down his window, and started asking me questions — what year was my jeep, who did my roll cage, and more …

Now, I had no idea who Darrel was.  However, in the time it took for the stop light to finally change colors, Darrel had explained through his passenger side window that he A) liked what I had built, B) had a 1950 CJ-3A, C) wanted his jeep rebuilt for his daughter, D) had his jeep nearby, and E) wanted me to follow him there.  If I learned that much at a stop light, I wondered how much I would learn about him once we stopped to see his jeep.

True to his word, he lived very close and had a 1950 CJ-3A that needed some work — hadn’t been run in 15 years.  It had a V-8 conversion, solid body, rotted top and plenty of potential.  And, to my surprise, based on my jeep, he asked me to do the work (and will pay me). I don’t have pics of this just yet.  I’ll share more about this if we go forward with the project.

Brian wrote to me late last week to share a sad tale.  As a part of the continued testing with his new build, he learned the hard way what happens if the oil in the front pumpkin housing gets too low AND the 4wd somehow gets accidentally shifted into gear (how that happened is still a mystery to him).  The result:  his front pinion started freezing up, resulting in some ugly sounds and a twisted driveline. See the pics to the right.

The good news is that everything else continues to behave well.

1952 M-38A1 Waxahatchie, Tx eBay

• CATEGORIES: Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, M-38A1

Here’s an old fire jeep.  It turns over and run, but there’s a mechanical problem of some kind.

“Mfg. Serial Number 21583. Date of Delivery 9/52. I bought two of these Jeeps in a package deal. I only want one of them, so I am selling this one. This Jeep would make a nice Jeep to restore. The body has a few bad places on it but all or easily repairable. There is very little rust on this Jeep, you can tell from the photos that the floorboards and toolbox is rust free. This jeep was used as a Fire Truck Brush Jeep and had at one time had a small tank in the rear floorboard. A couple of holes were placed in the floorboard for hoses leaving the tanks but I think they could easily be patched. The engine does turn over but there must be a problem in the drive train because it pulls hard when in gear. In any case it would make a nice Jeep to do a ground up restoration on. There isn’t a title for this Jeep but I will include with a Bill of Sale. Sold as is where is with no warranties expressed or implied. Selling it as a parts vehicle to be restored.”

1949 CJ-3A San Angelo, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $6000.

This looks in good shape.

“1949 Willys Jeep in great condition. Only a small bit of rust on the undercarriage. Otherwise the Jeep is in outstanding condition. The engine was rebuilt by the previous owner and always starts easy and runs strong. The roll bar and front and rear bumpers are custom made with a detachable tow bar and receiver adapters for winch or other uses. All tires are new. The transmission and transfer case both work well and appear to be original. The electrical system has been converted to 12 volts and has a GM alternator. All lights work and backup lights have been installed for general use or field dressing game animals. The brakes work well, but the master cylinder leaks. It has not been registered since 1999, but can easily be registered as an antique. I have not owned this Jeep very long and really don’t need it, however I have enjoyed driving it and it’s more fun than an ATV.”

3 FC-150s Cleburne, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $6000

The seller provides some nice explanations about each vehicle.

“Hi – I decided to start selling off some of the jeep collection over here – reluctantly offered for sale now is this small group of late 50s / early 60s jeep forward control trucks.

Offering all 3 of these neat trucks for one price of 6 grand —— hope to sell them as a group , but if nobody wants all 3 , will offer them individually. The 1st few years these were built, they came with narrow axles and were known to roll over. The last few years jeep had fixed this problem by moving the leaf springs outward and using a wider track axle front and rear. Also the 1st few years had been known for overheating problems due to poor air flow to radiators, so there were some changes made to their cabs over the years to improve air flow through the grill. There are couple of great websites and owners group sites about these trucks- if you want to learn more.

1st jeep fc-150 here is the red / white truck in the barn… this is a nice and complete / very very original truck with great sheetmetal and was running and driving up until apprx 6-8 years ago when parked her in the barn due to the gas tank leaking. this particular fc150 truck is an earlier model with narrow-track axles but did have a somewhat improved radiator air flow cab. excellent truck to restore or replace the gas tank and tune-up and drive around like she is. this truck is by far the best candidate for fixing up out of them all and the plan was to fully restore this one and had bought a later model fc truck and was going to swap-in the later model wide-track axles to make it safer for driving. original cab and bed in great shape with no bondo or major rust – only rust worth mentioning on this truck is the rust which has started forming around the front and rear windshield rubber seals- isnt a major problem yet but should be addressed before it gets any worse. also–still has original vin plate attached next to seat. this one was always cared for by previous owners and is a great little truck. we installed some wider wheels on it to make it safer to drive around town. very very fun to drive these trucks !!

2nd jeep fc-150 here is the green 1961 / 1962 model truck which still runs and drives , but was originally bought because of its wide track axles and suspension and was going to be a parts truck for restoring the red and white truck in the barn. has many many great parts – or could be fixed up i guess, but this one was being used on a farm and is a bit beat-up and has some rust in the bottom corners of cab along with floor of bed. has very nice windshield and also has original vin plate present still next to seat. also has the full air flow design cab where you can look through its grill and see the radiator. all 4 tires hold air and can drive this one short distances- needs brake work. 4×4 works and everything. many great parts here or could be fixed up and enjoyed.

3rd jeep fc-150 here is this very early model ( 1956 / 1957 ) with the narrow-track axles and the no air flow through its grill design that was famous for overheating problems. this truck is another great southern texas body and still has its original bed. this one hasnt been on the road for many many years and had its glass busted out by vandals apprx 6-10 years ago – but floorboards are still clean overall. this truck was found in san antonio and couldnt resist buying this one to keep around as a spare truck and this one came with its original vin and texas title. would be a good platform for a custom build or keep around for spare parts. has good doors and some extra parts inside too !”

It has to many new things to list so give me a call and take it for a test drive. I started to restore the jeep but I did not know how much money it would suck up. The jeep is fun to drive but it is not completely original but it could be put back to original if someone had the time and money. I would trade for a nice running 90s toyota mr2 or nissan 300zx or a 3000gt,but it would not hurt to offer any thing all I could say is no”
