1975 CJ-5 Shelton, Wa $2995

• CATEGORIES: CJ5

This trail jeep seems reasonably priced.

“Selling my trail rig. It is street legal but I trailer it around. It has a built 360, T15/D20, d44/d30 locked in rear, New custom drivelines, 5in of lift (used to be S.O. w/36’s I lowered it back down) 33″ wildcats with spare. 10klb Warn winch with remote, Cd player, Full roll cage, I have the soft top for it, but it needs a little sewing work done (its all there though). It has all the lighting you will ever need, Engine runs at about 80-90psi oil presure. Oversized radiator means it never overheats on the trail. The is an awsome trail jeep. I just dont have time to use it anymore…. Les T. 253-905-5500”

Builds — Vivek’s CJ-3B

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, Features

Vivek purchased a 1967 CJ-3B right hand drive Mahindra at the end of 2004.  According to his early blog notes, the jeep barely started, was missing the front drive line, and generally needed a lot of work.  When he finally did pick it up, on the way back it stalled, requiring the help of some local builders to move it out of the way of a bus.  Fast forward several years later and you can see Vivek and his CJ-3B pictured on the right.

Among Vivek’s challenges was his effort to get the papers.  Not only were the papers absent, but apparently the owner wanted to sell the jeep, but the owner’s son did not.  It took a few weeks before Vivek could get the original papers, insisting the owner drop the price slightly further for all the trouble the owner caused him.  You can read about the purchase here.

Learn more about Vivek’s recent engine rebuild, the jeep club he belongs to, and some recent jeeping pictures. Also, check out Vivek’s friend UBS and his one-of-a-kind jeep collection.

Vivek’s working for the next few months in Milipitas, California.  When he heads back in December, he hopes to take back a lift kit with him.  If anyone has any suggestions, comment below.

Builds — James’ Jeep is Painted

• CATEGORIES: Builds

James sent me a pic of his recently painted flattie.  It looks great and, he write, he didn’t have to bondo it.

As I started looking a the image more closely, I realized that his jeep has reversed shackles on the front and outboarded 2 1/2 inch springs on the back.  Nice ….

You can see what it used to look like here.

My Build — Bump Stops

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

I seem to be in the middle of a variety projects at the moment.  I did finally solve my bump stop puzzle — that being how to mount them.  After much pondering, I finally decided to run bolts through the frame longways.

In the image to the right you can also see the setup for the suspension limiters, which I’ll add if/when I race it.  I haven’t purchased them yet, but you can see them here.

Tomorrow I’ll have a post about the electric fan solution I found on ebay.  I also hope to have a post ready on the external dual oil filter system I’ll be completing tomorrow.

1952 CJ-3A Fargher Lake, Wa $2900

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

UPDATE:  Price now $2900

The Pontiac 195, also known as a Pontiac 194 and the ‘trophy 4’, is an interesting engine built between 1961-1963.  Apparently, it’s nearly as heavy as its 389 V8 cousin. That said, these were successfully modified for racing, including drag racing. While looking up the engine, I found the below jeep in several pictures on this website.

“1952 Willys CJ-3A with a Pontiac 195 (3.4l, half of a Pontiac 389 V8) slant 4 that runs great. New CJ-5 brakes/wheel cylinders, new battery, K&N air filter, Rancho 2 1/2 inch lift and shocks, 95% tread 31X10’s Federal All Terrains, new Besttop seats, good Besttop soft top, Smittybuilt XRC-8 Winch.

One owner, 5 mechanics & 45 flatfenders …

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features

A gentleman named Vivek contacted me last night.  He ran across ewillys while searching for some jeep parts.  He’s from India and owns a CJ-3B that he restored.  He’s currently working in California for a few months, before heading back to India, so he’s looking to locate a few parts he can take back with him (there’s enough jeeping in India that maybe I ought to head there and work for a few months — can I get a job with my MBA Vivek?).  I’ll be highlighting him and his efforts in a post I’ll write in the next few days.

For now, I want to thank Vivek for opening up the interesting world of jeeping in India to me.  After a few email exchanges, he pointed me to a gentleman named Mr. Uday Bhan Singh.  Mr. Uday, it turns out, owns 45 flatfenders that he has collected over the span of 40 years.  This month, autocarindia did an article on him, which has been copied and posted to the Jeep Thrills website, which is also Vivek’s jeep club.

Here are links to the article pages which is worth reading (once open, click on the page to zoom into it):

Page 1, Page 2, Page 3, Page 4

To say Mr. Uday is passionate about jeeps likely understates things; The article’s description of him as a Jeep Junkie is likely more accurate.  One look at the images of his “great arc” jeep and you’ll see he not only knows jeeps, but uses and jeeps with them.  Last year in his MB he navigated the length of the great arc, the 78th meridian that bisects India.  The meridian itself stretches about 583 miles as the crow flies, however the actual driving mileage was just under 1200 miles.

To complete this drive, Mr. Uday went prepared.  This jeep carries a few extra parts, such as 2 sets of springs mounted to the underside and a special contraption made of poles for helping winch out of difficult places that are strapped to the driver’s side.  I highly recommend reviewing the pictures.  Even the paint job is nicely unique (reminds me a bit of the follow-me jeep paint jobs).

My Build — More on the hood

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit, Features

There are several important lessons I learned from web and software development:  1)  Real artists ship, meaning that sometimes you can’t have everything you planned or wanted in a project if you want to get it out the door; and 2) there’s always a 2.0 version.

With those lessons in mind, after several days of fiberglass filler and sanding, fiberglass filler and sanding, I’ve finally got a roughed out shape I can live with.  The reality is, more sanding is necessary to get the slopes on the bump smooth, but I can live with its imperfectness (like anything else is perfect).

I have a little final trimming on the hood edges.  After that, it’s time to pull it all apart, prepare the body for sanding/paint, drill the gauge holes in the dash, fix my brake line, and complete some odds and ends in preparation of permanently putting the body on the frame.  Oh yeah, and clean up the garage — it’s looking pretty messy in the pictures!

1946 CJ-2A Huntsville, Texas **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay. 

“I am selling my much loved 46 Willys Texas Hunter. I need to get a second camp vehicle and decided to get two matching new Polaris Rangers. I have enjoyed several great seasons with this Jeep. Every off season it was stored inside my factory and whatever was needed was done and made ready for the next season.

Never intending to ever sell it I had both front and rear axels rebuilt last year and added new leaf springs to the rear. Prior to last season I had the brakes and shocks replaced. The brakes have never been that good and they need adjusting or bleeding again before next season. A new starter and battery were added last year.”
