December 1941 Pop Sci Article on Bantam BRC-40 T2E1s

• CATEGORIES: Bantam-FordGP-WillysMA-EarlyJPs, Features, Magazine, Old Images • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Originally published on February 02, 2014, the pop sci links no longer work, so I’ve now added the complete scan of the article.

This Bantam BRC-40 T2 article was published in December of 1941 in Popular Science (and possibly Mechanix Magazine) under “Tanks CAN Be Destroyed”. In it the author explores different machinery that can stop a tank. You can see variations from what could be the same photo shoot in this Bantam T2 & T2-E1 post.

This was originally posted October 23, 2014: Eddie Devlin of the Willys Overland Engineering Art Department sketched a variety of drawings of the factory. Some were published in a book called “WHAT I SAW AT WILLYS OVERLAND”. I’m not sure if the booklet was sold or used as a promotional device.

1950 CJ-3A w/ Mattracks Perham, MN $12,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $12,500.

(01/25/2020) Looks like a nice top design for a cold climate.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1351680488524612

“Jeep CJ7 on Mattracks custom built to pull a fish house through almost anything. I am the second owner. Here is the description from the first owner who built it: I bought a late model jeep cj 7 frame with drive line from a friend. Put the 350 short block, differentials, and 4 speed trans in to this one. Plus a new power steering pump and built the cab. Bought a factory remanufactured engine from Dave Mosney Auto north of DL . The drive line is in real great shape. The trans and differentials had very few miles on them. I was very impressed with the performance of the whole rig. This jeep is a year around toy that is comfortable, warm, great clearance, powerful, super traction.” It has some patina but runs extremely well. Tracks are in great shape. Also comes with a set of tires. ”

1962 M-170 Shipshewana, IN $3500

• CATEGORIES: M-170

Nick’s got this M-170 for sale.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/232671921678485

“Clear title. Willys M170 frontline ambulance, essentially a stretched M38A1 or military CJ6. Only 4,155 were produced. Lots of new parts. I purchased this Jeep mostly disassembled. It has a correct F134 4 cyl but CJ engine. With a test ignition setup from my other Jeep, I was able to test fire this engine. Installed a new clutch, throwout bearing, pilot bushing, and return spring. Mated the engine to a shifting transmission/tcase.

The previous owner purchased all new brake parts including master cylinder, shoes, wheel cylinders, rubber and hard lines (hanging brake setup in the engine bay isn’t part of this). I took apart the front hubs to ensure parts were installed correctly. Ended up replacing wheel bearings, races, and repacked bearing grease. Once I reassembled and attempted to adjust the brakes, I found the hubs were warped and lost all interest. Major parts such as body are lightly assembled.

Was going to do a patina build. I pressure washed the tub to get down to original paint on the driver side. Started using aircraft stripper on the rest. Rest of body and seats are untouched from an M38A1. Tires are weather checked but good enough for cruising around. Misc parts such as driveshafts, correct tail lights, etc are on a skid.”

“f Jeep would have started building these in the 70s, they would have never had financial issues. Look at this rare piece.The Jeep was built using all CJ5 parts. The front door is modeled off of a CJ7. The rear door is modeled off of a CJ5.

The bed is extended to the length of a CJ6 or CJ8 Scrambler. The frame is stretched 36 inches in the middle and 14 inches behind the rear axle. The frame was boxed from the front to the rear spring perches. It has Dana 30 and Dana 44 axles (both are open diffs). The transfer case is a Dana 20. The transmission is a 3 speed. I believe it is a T150.

The engine is an AMC 360 from a 1972 Wagoneer. It was rebuilt about 20,000 miles ago. It was bored over. The crank was turned. It got all new bearings, new pistons, new valve guides, and hardened seats. It has an RV cam, an Edelbrock SP2P low rise dual plane intake, and a Holley Street Avenger 570cfm double pumper carb. Skip White electronic ignition/distributor. Warn 8274 Winch. Heavy duty steel front fenders. (Matching Rescue Green CJ5 OEM fenders also included.) Rear corner guards. The motor has more than enough power for a vehicle this size.

1942 Article and Pics About Maj. Gen. Jacob Devers

• CATEGORIES: Bantam-FordGP-WillysMA-EarlyJPs, Features, Old Images

Major General Jacob Devers made multiple appearances in newspapers across the country. On February 05, 1942, he announced at Fort Knox that the armored forces could begin personalizing their peeps, jeeps, tanks, and other equipment with names, though they could not be objectionable names. The order does not indicate approval to put names on the windshields, but apparently that became allowed at some point.

1942-02-05-panamacity-news-herald-peep-jeep-names

On October 17, 1942 (Appeal Democrat out of Marysville, California) the Major General was photographed with other senior leaders discussing issues while sitting in a jeep:

As we’ve discussed earlier, there was a great debate about the proper term for the vehicle.
