Ruthie and the Jeep

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features, Old Images, Women & Jeeps

This unusual photo has likely been through photoshop at least once.  There’s a story attached as well.  Click here to read the entire story.

In 1959 my dad and Mr. Hatcher Williams founded a summer school for high school boys at a hunting lodge in Corolla, North Carolina. I spent nearly the whole summer at Camp Yonahnoka in the Carolina mountains while my sisters and parents practically lived at the beach. (continued)

1961 CJ-5 Clearlake Oaks, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ5

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1300.

The starter takes all of 15 minutes to install.  I don’t understand why the seller doesn’t install it and try to start the jeep?  This could be a good price.  However, I’m unclear why this has a flathead motor.

“61 CJ5 Has not been run in several years. Ran good when starter went out removed starter to have rebuilt but never reinstalled . Starter is rebuilt but not installed .Has a early “Go Devil ” previous owner installed was a daily driver for him ,Sebastopol to Santa Rosa . Has Saginaw power steering installed (GM) good tires spare never been on the ground. Needs lots of fixup as you can see.Title is straight registered non op Has newer Rancho 1.5″ springs

1950 CJ-3A New Castle, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was on eBay

“What i have is a 1950 willys jeep CJ3A that has been restored to the best of my ability . I put in a new body kit, new paint, restored the seats, and a new wiring harness,plus lots of other new parts to numerous to list. The motor and tranny have not been touched internally. I don’t have a top for it. I drove very rarely and didn’t need a top. I bought this jeep in pa and started restoring it with my father who passed away before it was done. As far as i know everything is correct or as close to being correct as can be done. I have gotten alot of compliments on this vehicle by people who bought them when they were new. Buyer is responsible for picking up vehicle and shipping it. I will except cash or a cashiers check from a bank, at the time of pick up.  I have very rarely driven the jeep, only about 3 to 5 miles and that was enough for me , so i have never really driven it very far. It has never done anything. But that doesn’t mean that it couldn’t. I just want to be as honest as possible. This also is my first time selling on e bay, so pleas bear with me. If you have questions i will try to answer them as quickly as possible. Thank You!”

1948 CJ-2A Hailey, Id $5995

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  Price dropped to $5995

(03/08/2011) The VIN of #315301 on this is a little high … like 80,000 production units high.  The dash is missing a couple items, but this sure looks nice.

“Great little run around flat fender Jeep. It picked up lots of TLC as of late A list of newer parts would include Body Tub Tail gate fenders grill hood windshield frame poly gas tank Front seats rear seats Alloy wheels Mickey Thompson Tires and Rancho springs. It also has been converted from to a 12 volt system with a alternator the wipers are electric and tail lights are LED. The engine has been tuned up and is absolutely purring. The steering is tight and 4×4 is solid the idle is smooth and runs great. This Jeep does not have a soft top or a hard top or doors, sold as is the open Jeep pictured. I would recomend a bikini top to the next owner and call it good at that. This Jeep is a real eye catcher and would be a fun toy to have around. Call Shep at 208.721.1973”

1961 CJ-3B Portland, ME **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

“Well, here we go loyal Jeep fans.  Don’t let this one get away.  This may be your last chance to own an ORIGINAL RUST FREE CJ-3B.  If you are looking for a truly rust free example, then this is it!  No new panels, no new floors, no new fenders, all body panels and tub are original to this CJ-3B.  Never any rust repairs, all original sheet metal.  Mostly original paint, touched up here and there over its 50 years.  Underside is clean as the topside.  All drive train is original and in terrific condition.  Original WARN OVERDRIVE was installed by the 1st owner to allow driving on the roads without taxing the engine with high RPM’s.  All general maintenance was performed last fall by a licensed mechanic.  Top and door frames are original with new black fabric in excellent condition.  Original wheels included. Original owners manual and service manuals included.

A few years ago I went on a search to find an original, not restored, rust free CJ-3B.  I always liked the high hood look of the 3B.  I intended to bring it to our family camp and use it as a grocery getter and let the family use it to scout around.  I didn’t mind doing the mechanical maintenance on it, but did not want to chase rust.  I found this 3B from a southern man who was the second owner.  He had the 3B for seven years and put 6000 miles on it.  The maintenance was done by a family member who was a licensed mechanic.  The general items, brakes, wiring, hoses, etc were tended to.  It was always garage kept and used primarily for pleasure. Although he did accumulate a few prizes at local car shows.  The 1st owners used it for forty-one years on the family compound.  It was garage kept and accumulated 29,000 miles.  General maintenance was kept up with no major events logged.  It has a clear title.  I had the 3B shipped to me and had a licensed mechanic run through it.  I brought it into town twice (6 miles), but never to camp.  The 3B has sat in a humidity controlled warehouse waiting to venture out.  Unfortunately, work has kept me at bay and it looks like it will continue into next year.  It is time to pass the torch on this CJ-3B to someone who can enjoy it!”

1957 CJ-5 Camino, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $1950.

(02/15/2010) I guess this needs a little work done?  It has an overdrive.

“The Jeep has a 1957 Chevy 283 V8 engine. It runs and sounds great. 3 speed manual trans with high/low transfer and overdrive. Has chrome valve covers and air cleaner cover. The tires are good and there are two spares. Its been under cover and for the most part is in pretty good condition. It has an electric fuel pump. I start it frequently. Battery is good. I’ve had it for 40 years, and have had many good times in it. The transmission needed rebuilding a few years ago, so I pulled the engine and replaced the damaged parts in the transmission. I got most of the project completed, but am no longer able to work on it. It will need some brake work and new mufflers, but for someone that is mechanically inclined, this is a very good chance to own a one of a kind Jeep. It doesn’t have a top. It has a tow bar and cover.”

Pics from past Chicago Auto Shows

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Features, Old Images • TAGS: .

The Chicago Auto Show website has an archive of images from past auto shows.  Some of the pics include a variety of different jeeps.  Some of these you have probably seen before and, hopefully, others you haven’t.

Last year Bruce shared documents which indicated Willys Motors planned to have a Hong Kong black and gold theme for 1960.  In the pics below, you can see the Hong Kong theme, but hard to tell what the colors are.

1951:

1954:

1959: (you can see a bigger version of the same photo at thefcconnection).  This must have been released as a PR photo.

1960: I thought the description on the bottom of this photo claiming the CJ-6 link was interesting.  I’m assuming the mistake was made by the person who assembled the auto show archives?

I found the advertisement below on Flickr. According to the information on Flickr,
this ad was for the 1960 Detroit Auto Show, but showed 1961 vehicles.

1961:  The Hong Kong Exhibit (though I haven’t quite reconciled the 1961 show date from  Bruce’s document).

1962:  Here’s something from International Harvester.
