“Check out this sweet 1951 cj3a. She has a very solid body. Bubba cut a 2 holes in the rear. I’m guessing to use so kind of equipment. Mobile welder or something off a PTO. She was a work jeep for sure. But looks to be taken care off. Other then the hood the body has this cool German desert camo kind of patina too it and check out the vintage mascot painted one it. It says “go devil powered” pretty Rad!! Also on the tail gate you can still make out the willys four wheel drive. I have a windshield frame gas tank and radiator for it. As is. has a tile and non op reg. But she has her spot in line to be fixed up and it won’t take much to get her going and street worthy again!!”

November 1946 Carl’s Motor Co. Dealer Ad

This looks like it may have been a full-page ad for Carl’s Motor company, despite the news stories sprinkled within. Note the photo of Bob Hope in a CJ-2A that seems to be promoting Carl’s Motors (I wonder if Bob Hope knew it).

These are very nice custom builder projects with pallets of spare parts. One body is on a highly modified original frame with four wheel independent suspension and four wheel disk brakes. The other body does not include a frame and can easily be fit to a Toyota Four Runner chassis or something similar.

“One day in 2013, I was talking with a buddy and he asked if I was interested in a Willys Jeep and since I was thinking about a “project” car, I said yes. Well, I got this little gem on a farm in the Hood River Valley! I call it Taz Willy and he has won several trophies at car shows! But, as happens with time, I have purchased a travel trailer and will be doing more traveling so I decided to give someone else the opportunity to have fun with Taz.

Even though he was used in the orchard as a spraying machine, and stored for quite a while, he was in good shape and all the dried mud on his underside protected him from rusting! I stripped him down to his frame and painted it with frame paint to continue his protection.

The engine has been rebuilt by Portland Engine Rebuild using the original f-head engine block. It is the 4 cylinder stock engine. Engine has 925 miles – all road miles.

The transmission is the original– 3-speed with compound low. This required only replacement of fluid. I works good.

CJ-2A Tub Conifer, CO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts, Parts

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $525.

Seems in pretty good shape.

“This is a CJ2A tub in overall very decent, solid condition. The previous owner had it sandblasted and started replacing rusted panels and supports…then let it sit outside for some time. The rust you see is mainly surface rust from sitting. The tool box has already been removed (and is gone), so this would be an ideal tub to stretch for a rock crawler project. Rear floor and wheel wells are in very good condition. The dash has not been all cut-up for extra gauges, radio, speakers, etc.”

Philadelphia’s Road Patrol Service

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine, Old Images

This article in the June 28, 1948, issue of Newsweek covers how the Keystone Automobile Club’s three jeeps were transformed into mobile video units for the 1948 Republican and Democratic Conventions that were being held in Philadelphia.

Six months earlier in January, the same jeeps had been setup with radios to help manage road patrol issues (multiple news articles mentioned this), so adding television service expanded, albeit temporarily, the capabilities of the jeeps.

Last year we saw a different pic of one of the jeeps that is housed in Philadlephia’s free library:
