1951 CJ-3A Dayton, ID **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3000

(04/06/2011) This needs a little work, but might have a body in good condition.

“1951 Willy’s CJ3 My grandfather bought this new years ago. I haven’t run it for a few years because it likes to overheat but it did run last time I tried. It still has the original motor. The paint is weathered but the unit doesn’t have any major damage to it. The four wheel drive still works. The front brakes do need some work on them. The top isn’t the original one that came on it. The gas tank would also need to be replaced. The metal gas tank has accumulated rust on the inside. Email me if you want to make an offer. I’ve already been offered $2000 for it. I will not ship the item and will only accept cash for the sale.”

Flat Fender Body San Jose, Ca $900

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts

UPDATE:  Price dropped to $900

(11/08/2010) The seller’s comments suggests this is an original body that has had work done.  If so, I’m guess some kind of mb/gpw (no gas outlet and no tailgate)?

“Professional shop completed body work. Primed and ready for installation. Very straight with no rust. Grill is new MB. $950. No frame or running gear. No other jeep parts. All or nothing. Call Ron 408 613-4613”

Alex spotted this jeep-as-gathering-spot courtesy of photographer George Silk and Life Magazine. The image was taken in October 1945.  I wonder if the film shot by the cameraman on the left still exists.

Builds: 1944 MB from Hardscrabble Farm

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features

Over a period of 9 years, between 1993 and 2002, this 1944 MB saw two major restorations.  The first, done by owner Richard Grace, was a partial restore, returning the jeep to its MB roots.  The second, done by Brian Mead, refined and corrected some of the previous shortcomings.

1956 CJ-5 & 1966 Bantam Trailer Eastern Oregon $8950

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, trailer • TAGS: .

This looks like a nice combo.  I think I’ve seen this jeep previously.

“For sale is a combo, restored 1956 Willys CJ-5 jeep and 1966 Bantam civilian 1/4 ton jeep trailer. They were both restored and painted to match just a few years ago, then stored in a building. The jeep has a metal half cab, heater, new upholstry, Ramsey 8,000 lb winch that has never had the cable spooled out, Warn over-drive, original 4 cylinder overhead that runs great, new front hubs, roll bar, small driving lights inside the grill, rack on the back for extra spare tire and handy-man jack and 5 gallon gas can (included). The trailer is a 1966 Bantam 1/4 ton civilain trailer (more rare than the military version), wood racks, spare tire, detachable tool box, and wired to match the jeep. PLUS, this also comes with a full set of mud and snow tires for BOTH the jeep and trailer, already mounted on a full set of spare wheels. I will not split the set up, this is a package deal. Compare the price of this set to a new “Rhino” at close to $11,000, and it makes this jeep and trailer look well worth the price. I have more money invested than the asking price of this jeep and trailer, with the restoration, extra tires and wheels… Clear Oregon titles. These pictures were taken about a week ago. I am also selling a 1960 CJ-5 in another listing. Thanks!”

1965 CJ-5 Black Mountain, NC $1200

• CATEGORIES: CJ5

This is a project.  It looks like the body has been patched together.

“I have a Kaiser-Willys 1965 CJ5 that is a project that is almost road worthy. Come have a look and make me an offer. $1200 OBO.

Has a running 4 cyl overhead “Hurricane” F-134 motor, T-90 3speed transmission, and Dana 18 transfer case.
The axles are a Dana 44 rear axle and Dana 27 front axle with original Warn lockers.
The jeep has a NEW clutch and NEW transmission (Has been installed –See Picture)
It has a NEW brake master cyclinder however the condition of brakes is unknown because the brake line is disconnected.
Original seats, but they are rough… I added padding and wrapped them with duct tape, intending to put a seat cover over them. They are usable but might want to have reupholsered.
The Original steel jeep rims are 16 inch, 5 x5.5 bolt pattern. Rims have been sandblasted, primed and painted gloss white
The Windshield in good shape with electric wiper motors instead of vacuum wipers. This was pulled from a ’72 jeep cause the orginal was rusted out.
The Floor boards in the process of being replaced, Rocker panels are also being replaced.
The Frame is in good shape having no rust through. Frame has been sandblasted and painted.
INcluded is a raggedy old soft top and soft doors, keeps the weather out, but nothing special to look at.
The Jeep has side mounted spare tire carrrier with full sized spare.
Tires are old and have cracks in them but hold air fine. I would replace them to go on the road.
NEW components include: starter solenoid, wires, spark plugs and fuel filter.
There is a stock heater and an after market 2nd heater is installed… dont know if they work.

This is great vintage jeep. Fix the brakes, tires and tail lights and you canbe on the road. It will be a fun little around town, parkway cuiser or trail jeep. Most of the major stuff has been done…. does need finishing to be drivable.  I have an open NC title in hand.

1963 Austin Champ Scottsdale, AZ **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s, Unusual • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

(03/03/2011) This is the nicest Champ I’ve ever seen.

“UP4AUCTION hosted by Discover Classic Cars is very pleased to offer you this 1963 AUSTIN CHAMP JEEP! This a rather rare vehicle, these were the civilian versions of the British combat vehicles. This has 12,130 ACTUAL miles and will definitely cause heads to turn wherever you show up in it. This is not a daily driver and is not built for highway driving. Normal speed is roughly 30mph and its maximum speed is 60mph at 3,700rpm.  This Champ will also ford to a depth of 1 foot 6 inches.

The temperature gauge is in-op presently, Red main indicator light is burned out and the hand brake is in need of an adjustment.

Finished in Maroon with Blue fenders, the exterior of this Austin shows well. There are a few blemishes in the paint, please view the photographs below or call us for additional details. The White vinyl removable soft top and doors are in very good condition. The Maroon vinyl seats are in good condition, there is minor wear present and a tear on the inside of the passenger seat.  The carpeting also shows minor wear just so you’re aware. Please view all of the photographs below or call us for details….”

A Jeep Wagoneer + a Ferrari = Jerrari • Top Speed: 140mph

• CATEGORIES: Features, Museums

The National Automobile Museum (the Harrah Collection) in Reno, Nevada, opened in 1989.  Most of the collection is based on Bill Harrah’s (gaming pioneer and avid collector) automobile collection.  Following Bill’s death in 1978, the Holiday Corporation bought Harrah’s Hotels/Casinos and more, including the collection.  Then Holiday announced they were going to sell the cars.  This ticked off Nevadans, so the governor stepped in and helped negotiate a donation of the cars by Holiday to a special non profit organization established for the purposes of a museum.

The museum was named among the top ten museums by Car Collector magazine, has been ranked as one of the best 16 car museums in the world by Autoweek, and has been selected the best Museum in Northern Nevada in Nevada Magazines’ Annual Readers Poll.

The collection appears to have only two jeeps.  One is a slightly modded CJ-5; the other is a Wagoneer that was outfitted with a Ferrari engine and called a Jerrari.

Here is the Jerrari as photographed by RenoDesertFox from Flickr.  Note the color of the first image is the correct color and the remaining images have had the colors tweaked by the photographer, but still show a good deal of detail.

1. Front view of the Jerrari (link to original)

2. Color has been tweaked. (link to original)

3. The Ferarri engine. (link to original)

The Plane called a Jeep by the USAAF

• CATEGORIES: Features

Admittedly, I know very little about planes.  So, maybe I’m the only person who didn’t know that there was a plane that’s called a Jeep?   It is the Curtiss AT-9 ‘Jeep’ plane.  I discovered it while looking through some old photos at the McCarthur Museum in Arkansas (which I’ll feature in a couple days).

Here’s the photo I initially found. (see the last sentence in the caption).  When I first saw the photo, I looked around to see where the jeep was sitting, but the little plane was blocking my view.  Then it finally dawned on me that the little plane was the jeep.

Here’s a more recent photo from Wikipedia.
