1947 Truck Phoenix, AZ BAT Auction

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: , .

Blaine spotted the auction for this nicely refurbed truck. Current bid is $5000.

“This 1947 Willys Jeep Truck is a first-year example that was acquired by the seller in 2016 and subsequently refurbished at The Jeep Farm in Waddell, Arizona. The exterior was refinished in Bedford Grey with Challenger Blue accents, and the interior was reupholstered in Pendleton blanket fabric and blue vinyl. The 2.2L Go-Devil inline-four was resealed, and sends power to all four wheels via a three-speed manual transmission and a Spicer transfer case. Work in 2020 included a carburetor service, wiring repairs, coolant flush and some paint work. Approximately 2,350 four-wheel drive Willys Jeep Trucks were made in 1947 and this example is now offered with records, a reprinted owner’s manual, and a clean Arizona title in the name of the seller’s LLC….”

Look solid. Has a few updates. A Sears Deluxed Hardtop is included also.×4/7196452996.html

“1952 Willys Jeep CJ-3a 4X4 Flat Fender L-134
Runs well (for almost 70 years old), drives, safe and legal on streets, good tires, good brakes (for drums), all working gauges (including new fuel gauge and sender, and new speedo), and currently registered until summer 2021. Drive train (3 speed, two or four wheel drive) and engine are mostly original/original restore except converted to 12V with alternator. Original L-134 Willys engine. 4 wheel drive with front locking hubs (hubs not original).
Lots of extras/upgrades including:
> Full 6 point roll cage
> Bikini Top (very good condition)
> Includes Aluminum HARD TOP!!! with doors (needs some work – about 85% complete, missing rear window/hatch, missing one door window and handles, but very hard to find these and it’s a nice extra to have)
> Extended steering box
> Extra front push bar with Extra lights, front grill guard
> Setup for towing, INCLUDES mated tow bar
> External Overflow tank (similar to Desert Cooler)
> Good seats, with seatbelts front and back
> Spare Tire
> “Willys” stamped on both fenders and tailgate
> Horn and turn signals (that only sort of work – I use hand signals)
> New 165 deg thermostat
> Very little time on newer alternator
> Good battery with blade disconnect
Certainly not a “show Jeep”, but was perviously used as a “tow behind” with a motor home for hunting/fishing/around camp transportation.

So Cal car for at least the last 20 years, no structural rust (mild surface rust on some scratches). Drove it roundtrip from Northridge to Simi Valley last week in 90 degree weather.

Can drive or tow home (but remember the top speed is about 50 mph down hill!)

If you want a Willys Jeep, especially for a tow-behind, you should definitely take a look.”

Newgren Stabalizer Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: .

As I mentioned a couple days ago, I received some Newgren brochures as part of the Jeep Equipment book I received. The brochures are numbered between Form N-160 (below) through Form N-168, with only Form N-167 missing. I cannot see a reason for them to start at N-160, but they do. I also think that there were other brochures from this line of brochures that I do not have. I will published these brochures over the coming days.

This brochure indicate that the Newgren equipment is tailored for the Monroe Hydraulic Lift.
