1951 Truck Shingle Springs, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2900

It sounds like the seller wants this to go to a good home.

“Running all original truck. Current registration. Clear title. 4X4, 4 cylinder, lumber rack that slides into the stake pockets, painless wiring harness professionally installed (still 6 volt).

I shopped for a long time to find a truck as straight as this one. I was not looking to restore to original, I just wanted a straight body. When I finally found the body I wanted, it came with a complete running truck. I started gathering parts (engine, tranny, axles, etc.) to modernize it but felt guilty about messing with a complete truck. I recently found another one and this time it was already sitting on a different frame, new motor etc. So now I can sell this truck and I hope to someone with intentions of restoration. It is in good shape so not much is needed but I will list what I think it needs:
Paint job (I have been sanding when I have time)
tires have good tread and hold air but they are looking old
rear window was cracked so I removed it in anticipation of replacing it
some tie rod ends need replacing (vibrations when you get to 40 mph or so)
If you plan on driving on the highway an overdrive will be needed
It has an am radio but it doesn’t work (I started removing it so you will see it is loose in the picture)
It has a heater that looks like it came from something else but looks as old as the truck. It was not hooked up so I took it out and went through it. The fan works but I found a small leak in the heater core that should be easy to solder.
It has an old spot light.”

1967 M725 Ambulance Collingswood, NJ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Other 4x4s • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $995.

“I purchased this over 2 years ago with the intentions of restoring it. I have purchased many additional parts but have not had that much time to work on it. The boro had asked us to remove it from the property back in September due to one of our wonderful neighbors. We need to sell soon. I did get it to turn over. This is a great solid Jeep with very little rust for someone who has time to work on it. We had it posted in the Fall for $1750 but now brought the price down. The price is firm. I have posted many items on here with great success. We are looking to sell this quick. Not looking forward to selling it but in the future when I have more time I will look into purchasing another vehicle to restore. Need to be removed from our property by end of March. ”

1951 M-38 Pearland, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was eBay.

This is Norman.  Norman looks good!

“You are bidding on a 1951 M38 military jeep.  This jeep runs great and the body is in very good condition. There is a small rust spot on the passenger floor board, about the size of a quarter, I included it in the pictures.  The fuel gauge only works when the fuel level gets to 1/2 tank, then it reads accurate. The windshield is cracked due to my nephew sitting on it when I had it down.  The transmission, rear-end, and transfer case work flawlessly transitioning in and out of 4-wheel drive and high/low range.  The engine starts on first crank and always has. All fluid levels are up to date and get checked routinely. My uncle sold it to my brother and I purchased it from him 2 years ago.  I drive the jeep twice per week, once to take my son bird hunting, the other to his baseball game on Thursday nights (approx. 3 miles).  It is not street legal so I take it through the neighborhood by my house staying off of the highway. My wife’s car has been sitting out too long and she wants her spot back in the garage and my third garage door only measures 62 inches wide, not wide enough; that is the only reason I am selling it.  I tried to locate a title but was unable to do so, the process is simple to acquire a bonded title but cost approx. $150 depending on the value of the vehicle, I did not take this step due to the cost and the amount of time to get it back from the DOT, plus I never needed it to be street legal. The odometer reads 44, 304 miles, not sure if thats accurate.”

3 Flatties Phoenix, AZ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4000

“Thinking about selling my collection, will take offers. The yellow one is 1948 CJ2A that I have owned since 1977 area with good AZ title. Had a Buick v6 when I got it but later changed to a datsun 4 cyl, but currently no engine mounted in it. I boxed in the front frame & set up for chevy saginaw power steering box. Has stock 5:36 gear axles converted to full posi spools. The light brown aluminum top is from the frame only picture which is an MB.
The MB has no title but has been AZ forever. I have the front end w/ black out lights back to the cowl and front winshield cut through the floor area. The frame running gear is complete w/ turret mount and free floating rear axle. The engine is later model rebuilt 4 cyl. over head valve.  The black one w/ aluminum hard top I brought in from Wyoming 10-15 years ago. It is complete except for motor which is out and cracked from freeze and no body rust. Not sure what the correct model for it is but the cowl & windshield frame is same height as my CJ2A which has a round frame, this one has a square fram but not tall like a CJ3B that a buddy had. The hard top is extremely well made and looks like it has been there from original, real solid w/ more square aluminum cross braces & upright corners & removable panels than I have seen before. I have numerous extra parts from over the years, spare flat head blocks and stuff.

I bought the MB to rob the new engine, free floating rear end and hard top for my 2A because I bought 2 sets of new disc brake conversions and was going to install on all 4 corners w/ locking hubs on all for towing. Then I found the black one and the top w/ doors was to good to pass up. The disc brake seats I ordered new and are still in the boxes. Serious inqueeries only, not in financial problems just considering selling to best offer over 4K

Hill Climbing in Canada — From Antiquewillys.com

• CATEGORIES: Features, Website

I have to say I’m a fan of Canada and Canadians.  Growing up in Seattle, Canada was only a 3 hour drive away, so I’ve crossed the border many times.  On the other hand, the Canadians keep sending me back … I don’t know what that’s about …

When I was 20, I had an opportunity to work in the San Juan Islands for a couple years, at the north part of San Juan Island itself at Roche Harbor (map).  Many Canadians boated over to enjoy Roche’s hospitality, perhaps as many as half the tourists were Canadian.  Because I had friends with boats, I had the opportunity to boat across Haro Strait and visit Victoria, BC, Canada.

There are four things I know about Victoria from personal experience:  1) The Royal BC Museum was a great place to visit; 2) There used to be a great knife store downtown that gave good discounts to chefs (I still have a couple of those knives); 3) There are places to drink in Victoria (which for a newly minted 21 year old was pretty fun); and 4) There were some very nice strips clubs downtown (which for a newly minted 21 year old … well, you get the picture).

I’ve also spent time in Vancouver.  During one memorable, well mostly memorable, experience, I attended the 1986 World Expo (and it turns out countries still hold world expos — the 2010 Expo is in Shanghai, China), which took place at the downtown facilities which held the recent Winter Olympic Games.  Me and 2 of my friends trekked up to the ’86 expo, without hotel reservations of course; instead, we spent two nights camped out in Vancouver.  The first night was on some land being developed right near downtown.  We just set up the tent, and jumped in (and a whole lot of traffic woke us up early the next morning).  The second night we found a walking trail a little farther out of downtown and jumped in the tent.  Oh, to be young again ….

With these thoughts in mind, I decided to do a search of flatties and Canada and happened across the antiquewillys.com website. After some looking around, I found a photo gallery, where I came across this image, posted by “waggone”.  I personally love to see those desert dogs reaching for the sky!
