Year? Veep Marietta, GA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: VEEP (VW Jeep), Scamp, Others • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $9250.

(08/26/2010) According to the seller, this is a factory built Veep.  This is one of the nicer Veeps I’ve seen.

“This is a factory built Veep. They were built from 1979 to 1981. It is an all metal CJ3 body on a really tough square tube chassis with all VW running gear. Really well done and well constructed. Drives smoothly like a VW and not like a jeep CJ3. It is the ultimate ride for street or off road. Would make a great hunting buggy. Will go most anywhere without much effort. I have owned the veep for over 20 years and it has always been stored inside. The bottom of the car is as clean as the top. It has a soft top, frame and doors. The car was appraised about a year ago for insurance purposes at $12,200.00. I am asking $9,250.00 for the car and will look at all offers. Need the storage space.”

Israel’s First Parade Included Jeeps

• CATEGORIES: videos

Or spotted this video of Israel’s first military parade.  Part way through you’ll see some Willys rolling through.  There are a few fascinating related videos along the right hand side as well.  Having visited Auschwitz & Berkinau in Poland, I found those particularly interesting.

Buttercup’s ‘New’ Brother

A few months ago William shared the story of Buttercup.  Well, he now reports that he found Buttercup a new brother.  He also reports, definitively, that a CJ-2A will fit into the back of a Toyota Tundra.  I think Toyota ought to add that to their tv commercials.

Some Scam Ads out of New Mexico

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

Recently, Mike wrote to me about several Willys related ads that appear to be scams out of New Mexico.  The ads aren’t all the same, but are similar. Mike identified these common themes:

  1. No phone number
  2. No pictures
  3. Rush to sell
  4. Low affordable pricing
  5. Rural location outside of ABQ..
  6. Does not respond to local contact attempts.

Here are some links that you might find useful; my goal is to put together a more comprehensive collection of scams that are automobile focused.

1945 ex army jeep runs good , 4 cylinder engine original threw out, but needs some body work done , not serious some surface rust under the frame and also on top of the front fenders. I used this jeep to get around in the winter time for many years , very dependable old jeep, you can always get your money out of it if you decide to sell later, with more work to be done on it. This jeep will not drive very fast but it sure can climb up trails and mountains, and just in time for the snow here in new mexico, took it hunting deer many year ago, I went out early this morning this place was covered in snow I keep my jeep under my old shed , and it started right up with no problems, it has the 4×4 still working on it, I no longer going to need it because I am moving to t or c where it is a little more warmer, and I am getting somewhat older 78 years young cannot deal with this colder weather so email me to come see , first to come by with cash gets the jeep, please no trades or low offers , I will sell this jeep for my price I will have a better chance if it even snows more,. I just saw one on e ebay sell for much more than this, and the jeep was not even running. The jeep is sold as is no refunds , you buy it it is yours.

1940? Model? Southwest Iowa $450

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, MB

UPDATE:  Lester reports this *might* be a scam, as 936 is a Texas area code rather than a Iowa code. Of course, cell numbers are so portable, of which I’m a perfect example (I have a cali area code), that it’s not a definitive sign.

No pics.  The seller will text a pic. I’m gonna guess this is either a MB/GPW or CJ-2A.

“It needs some work. Its seventy years old. The body is in good shape for the age. It has the origanal engine, trany, as far as I know. Can send pic text. Call or text Joel 936-230-4650”
