WWI Four Wheel Drive Star — Nash Quad

• CATEGORIES: Features, Unusual • TAGS: , .

It was one of those days where I was searching for one thing and found another:  The Nash Quad Truck (the truck to the right is a 1919 Nash Quad, Owned by Bruce and Melanie Rice #8880).  These are 4wD with four wheel steering.  (see the video below to see a quad and its steering in action)

It turns out, these were a big hit during World War I.  In the Story of the Jeep, Patrick Foster writes that the Quad ” … dramatically proved it’s worth … and proved the value of four wheel drive …”

Here’s a brief history from the Pioneer Flight Museum:

The Nash Quad was first manufactured in 1914 by the Thomas B. Jeffrey Company, which was located in Kenosha, Wisconsin. It became quite popular during World War I and was used by the armed forces of not only the United States, but also Russia, France and Britain. One of the first motor vehicles to offer four-wheel drive, the Quad proved very suitable to the rough, unpaved roads of the time. In 1916, Jeffrey sold the production rights to the Nash company. Because of its popularity, it was produced in large numbers, including license production by Hudson, National, and Paige-Detroit. Exact numbers aren’t known, but apparently over 11,000 were produced in 1918 alone.

Here’s a video of a Nash Quad being started and driven:

1943 MB Wenatchee, Wa $5200

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB

1943_mb_wenatcheeThe paint job on this is pretty unusual.  It looks like a tile mosaic.  The top is in poor condition.

“Body, running equipment, and engine all excellent. Interior and top need work. Has a tow bar to pull it with and you will need a light bar for rear if going very far. If you want to drive it away bring top post battery.”

• CATEGORIES: M-151

1964_m151_buttecountyUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3850

This looks in very good shape for the price.

“This is an ex-military Jeep made by Kaiser. It was stationed at Ford Ord military base in central California during Vietnam. This was called a Fast Attack Vehicle used by all the armed forces. This one was an ARMY Jeep. The original odometer still works and shows 15,000 miles. It is 4 wheel drive like most Jeeps but these have full independent suspension with A-arms instead of leaf springs. Many things have been replaced with original parts. The only thing I had left to do was install the headlight switch assembly. Thats why I say it’s about 95% restored. It runs and drives good.”

Before there were jeeps, there was still Willys-Overland

• CATEGORIES: Books

Before there were jeeps, drivers had to amuse themselves with vehicles somehow. Before there was Willys Overland there was just Overland.  In 1907, wondering where 500 cars he ordered were, John North Willys found himself having to ask friends to inject cash into Overland after he discovered he wouldn’t get his cars if he didn’t (the company would have gone bankrupt).   So, in 1920 you have an Overland (maybe the 1918 Overland 90 Touring model) made by Willys Overland, what can you do with it if you don’t have four wheel drive?

You jump it of course!  On September 5, 1920, the driver below, Henry Alegria, a Basque Pioneer in Idaho, drove this four cylinder Overland touring car over an 18 foot gap between two ramps.  I’m assuming he survived the jump.  It looks pretty crazy, given the driver probably had no seat belt.  I found the photo in a book by Arthur A. Hart called Life in Old Boise that someone gave me recently.  The book has some great pics, which are more enjoyable if you know Boise, Idaho, at all.

1951 CJ-3A Roslyn, Wa $2800

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

1951_cj3a_roslynUPDATE: This is still available.  A new pic is provided.

This might not be a bad price.  It’s worth a look if the body is in as good of shape as advertised.  For Northern Exposure fans, Roslyn, Wa, was the real setting for the fictional city of Cicely, Alaska.  (Here’s some filming locations)

“This jeep has been used summers at our cabin in Roslyn, put in covered storage in winters. Has newer F head 4 cylinder, rebuilt rearend and brakes, rewired, new battery, tow bar, bikini top, original skinny rims and weathered tires. Runs well, easy to drive, 4 wheel drive shifts and works perfect. Over all good shape, but not perfect by any means, no body rust through at all, some minor cosmetic body rust on the side but that is all. Worked perfect for us going to the beach, exploring gravel roads etc, a ton of fun for the money. Jeep is in Roslyn, can be arranged to be seen most weekends, could be brought to the West side for the right buyer and a deposit. Call Mike at 206-755-5813, leave a message and I’ll call you back. If you email give me some time to get back to you.”

Willys MBT 1/4 ton trailer Milwaukie, Or $450

• CATEGORIES: trailer

willys_mbt_milwaukieThis is pretty rough, but it’s one of the lower priced trailers I’ve seen.  I don’t know a lot about these.

“WWII military trailer built to be towed behind the Willys MB or Ford GPW jeeps. This one is just like a Bantam T3, but I believe it was built by Willys. It tows nicely, but the lights aren’t hooked up right now. The floor is pretty bad, but most are after over 60 years of our weather. It has a 2″ ball coupler and does have a tailgate.”

“1952 Willis Jeep. Runs good and has a sound body. All gears are good. Enclosure included (soft top and sides). Removable back seat, gun rack, and tow bar. The vinyl seats are cracked, as is the windshield. This Jeep was restored before I bought it and has locking hubs and wide tires. (I have two of the original tires and rims.) I have owned it for 10+ years and used it for hunting, playing, etc. It is kept in a shelter. Due to infrequent use, I am willing to part with it. $5000 Cash OBO”

1947_cj2a_canadaIt seems the seller has owned this for 35 years, but doesn’t really know anything about it.  The seller has this listed as a CJ-3B and wasn’t aware that the back of the jeep wasn’t original.  It’s certainly an interesting rebuild.  The seller apparently had this sold, but the buyer backed out, so the seller has relisted it.
