1942ish 4WD Model T Ignacio, Co eBay

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s, Unusual

Ok, so I admit I thought this was going to be junk.  But, on closer inspection, the suspension is unusual, the engine/tranny/tc all appear to have been neatly rebuilt.  Besides, buy this and “be the only dude w/ a 4×4 model t”.

this auction is for a custom built 1942 willys jeep w/ ford model t body parts. the engine is a 2.o ohv ford engine that is freshly built . i just completed the wiring , except for the headlights and taillights. this project is 95% done. it is lacking glass and paint along w/ lights frnt and back. i believe the items that are lacking are very personal items and should be chosen by someone that plans on keeping it awhile. it needs doors as well. but there are many options to choose from. i would like to see someone that plans on keeping it finish it . that way i dont lose out on my time and effort and the buyer picks it for cheaper. feel free to call or e-mail w/ any questions or concerns.buyer is responsible for shipping  and may be able to meet half way or deliver for a fee . thanks and good luck. this is a great vehicle and deal as wll , dont pass it up. be the only dude w/ a 4×4 model t. only one i know anyways!!

A reader named Rich spotted this ad and checked it out.  He reports that he went to look at it and learned that the floor is pretty badly rusted, but drive train, engine, dash plaque, verify a V-35/U that might be rescued.  This is a very rare find. Thanks Rich!

1958 DKW Munga Auto Union Seattle, Wa Status Unknown

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  Status Unknown

(06/04/2010)  DKW Mungas were sold in the USA by Studebaker, along with Mercedes-Benz. Here are a variety of images of the Munga.  Munga is the German Acronym for “Multi purpose Universal Cross-country Car with All-wheel drive”.

“1958 DKW Auto Union Audi Jeep 3=6 Munga Gelandewagen 3cyl 2 stroke FWD/4X4. VIN 68602889. Miles 24,579. NATO Peacekeeping Jeep. FWD 4X4 3cyl/ 2 Stroke. This rare piece of post war history is a DKW / Auto Union Military jeep which was later used in civilian production. This car came to Seattle in 1982 from Palo Alto, California where it had lived for decades. It was driven regularly in the 80’s and sold with a DKW collection and put in dry storage until now. It is believed complete and also has many spares including a good crankshaft, which is an important item on this car. We have taken many parts out of the car to show condition of the body, but we will load it for the purchaser and carefully package it. As you can see the car is partialy disasembeld and it does not run.

The Auto Union was the collaboration of DKW, Audi, Wanderer and Horch

These vehicles are extremely nimble, and will climb a very high grade. They rev like crazy, and are a hoot to drive. Front wheel drive to four wheel drive on the fly, they are nearly impossible to get stuck in. 3 cylinder two stroke with only seven moving parts in the engine, there are strong parts clubs overseas and in the U.S. These are a fabulous conversation piece, and can be used instead of a golf cart at a car show or auction site. Very collectible and priced to sell. Nice restoration project. There are several owners clubs in the world and parts are accessable.”

2 CJ-2A(s)? Jackson Cty, MS **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, M-38

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2000.

(10/06/2009) “Two early Willys jeeps. One is an “Army jeep,” and may be a very rare variant made by Willys in 1946 for the Coast Guard, and the other is a definitely a ’46 CJ2A (it has a nameplate). From my purely novice viewpoint, it looks a lot like the CJ2A, but I’m selling it without claiming it to be any particular model. I just don’t know myself to be able to say. It has “battle wheels and tires.” I do know both are 1940s models (everyone seems to agree on that point) and the army one had a PTO (it has a pillow block in the original bumper) in the front and has an odd-ball “government-issue” hitch and tow-bar. The CJ2A is complete incl. engine, the other is minus the engine, but the rest of the drivetrain appears complete. Both need a fair amount of work if the buyer wants to restore them to original, but you could probably get a running jeep in a full weekend of work, maybe less. There is enough here to get one complete, running jeep and have a fair boneyard left over. The bodies are, as these things are generally found, both pretty good. I had gotten these intending to make one out of both, but have been told they are collectible and it’s probably best not to do that. I don’t have the time or really, the interest or desire, to restore them myself. I’ve checked eBay, etc., and know that these are not just “old jeeps,” so please, no low-ball offers.”

Eco Motors ‘Fun’ Vehicle

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: , .

Continuing with yesterday’s e-jeep, while not a 4wd vehicle, this eco-motor jeep look-a-like appears inspired by the CJ-5.  According to ecofriend.org, “The Fun retails for $24,995, though they have an introduction price of $19,995,  and can deliver a top speed of 70mph and an operating range of about 100 miles between charges. The vehicle uses the customizable MiMod EV monitoring system from EV Instruments, which is an integrated system of sensors, monitoring logic and operational controls that can be customized to suit any type of EV.”

Here is the website for Eco Motors and the Fun. The company appears to be located in Springfield, Mo.

John’s ‘new’ M-38

• CATEGORIES: Features, M-38

John contacted me last month asking me to comment on several different jeeps he wanted to purchase.  His goal was to buy an older jeep and had several in his area (midwest) he was choosing between.  I thought it might be helpful to share my thought processes involved in helping John.

He narrowed his choice down to between a 42/43 GPW, a 1947 CJ-2A military clone, and a restored M-38 (though missing a few of he details of a polished restoration). He said he was only going to use the vehicle for around town trips and did not plan to offroad it at all. He asked for my opinion and here are summaries of my responses.

GPW: The GPW looked pretty good, however there had been a good deal of work done to the front areas of the frame (welds along the top and bottom near the bumper brackets, along with indentations along the side of the frame indicate lots of grinding).  It had been patched together from the inside and ground down on the outside to make it appear smooth.  I’m sure it was solid enough to meet his needs, but I think it dropped the value somewhat.  If this is equal in price to the M-38, than personally I would go with the M-38.

CJ-2A Military Clone: I’m sure this would be a solid jeep to drive around, though this jeep should be priced significantly lower than the other two; Given the dirty condition of the engine, I’d be a little worried that the drive train hasn’t been examined recently (perhaps the seller has indicated that the drive train has been rebuilt?).  Since it is your desire to have a vehicle that is dependable out of the box, I’m less sure this one is for you.  Price-wise, this should be quite a bit less than the others given it’s blended history, say in the $3500-$4500 price range at most.

M-38: It isn’t a perfect restoration (for example, the tranny cover has plenty of dents and imperfections), but it looks very solid, which meets your needs.  The M-38 should hold its value well, as there were fewer of these made then most any other model.

Out of the three, I liked the M-38 best for him, as the seller had good pics showing the initial state of the vehicle before restoration, during restoration and after restoration.  There was also room for John to make value-added improvements, such as adding stickers and other details.

John has owned it a few weeks now and I asked him how he liked it.  He wrote back, “I know that it will have issues only because it is an old jeep. It has lots of funny noises and stuff that I’m not used to. It took me awhile to get used to a choke and floor start and throttle. It has the overdrive which i guess i should just leave alone. The guy i got it from forgot to put new cotter keys in the whole front end so that spooked me after I found it but no problem. He left one of the plugs out of the front steering knuckle so I’m going to have to get one. He welded new bracing underneath and did a pretty good job, but there are a couple of spots that could have been better. The motor really seems to run good. I’m still kind of terrified of the 24 volt system like if it ever stalls how the hell do you jump it. I’m kind of getting used to the shift pattern and double clutching to get in third without a small grind but its ok. All in all, I didn’t get it for a show jeep, just for tooling around town. My town is around 14 thousand people and they have never seen anything like this. The little kids give me the thumbs up and the old guys smile.”

Congrats John!  Here are some pics. In the first two you can see the pre-restoration starting point.  The work was done by Eric out of Granite City, Illinois.

Here, much work has been done.

Now it is close to being finished and readied to be sold:

John added some stickers and now has a great little jeep:
