Dexter’s Slat Grille Purchase

• CATEGORIES: Builds

UPDATE:  This slattie was bought in early 2010 and resold a few months later.  It demonstrates how a little work can go a long way.  Dexter found a variety of deals using craigslist and managed to improve this inexpensively.

Below are the before pics.  Here are some after pics.

1948 CJ-2A Smithfield, NC **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $300

For a parts jeep, this looks like a decent price.

“1948 willys jeep cj2a.  same body style as the ones you see in all the WWII movies (only this is the civilian version). has original L-134 Go Devil engine, has original trans, transfer case, front and rear ends, has original wheels. I have taken off the carb, intake and exhaust manifolds, the windsheild (with good glass), seats and original head.  head has been shaved and cleaned up by a guy off of US 70 E in LaGrange, NC, I replaced part if the rubber fuel line.  I have a new head gasket for it.  Needs body off, tub needs to be either replaced of the appropriate replacement body parts welded on.  Before I removed the head and replaced the fuel line, I figured out that the rubber fuel line was worn out so I wasn’t getting any fuel so I put gas in the carb and got it to move a little ways after I figured out the shift pattern and before the carb ran out of gas if you put it back together it will run.  all the parts you need are on this web site http://www.kaiserwillys.com/.  I am willing to part out or sell the whole thing for $300.00 or best offer (serious offers only not junk e-mails please). If you want larger parts (i.e. engine, transmission, ect.) give me a call a head of time and you can help me pull them for you (I should have all the tools needed eccept a cherry picker) and Ill get what I need from my toolbox at work.  for smaller parts come by and pick them up”

1961 FC-170 Lake Wales, Fl **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

“This “Go-anywhere,” “Tough-job traction” truck is on the market here for the first time in over 20 years.  Originally purchased from a glass co. in OHIO by the current owner.   He has done a complete frame off restoration as you can plainly see in the photos. Introduced in 1957 the Jeep Willys FC-170 was wider and carried a heavier load than the FC-150.  It has a Kaiser 6-226 motor inline 6 that is good on gas.  You won’t get stuck with high/low option 4WD and LT235/85R16 tires.

The bed is made of appatong wood said to be 5 times harder than oak for those heavy loads.  The truck has a 7,000 lb. GVW, a 103″ wheelbase with a 108″ bed.  The Cab-over design is very unique. There were approximately 2,000 FC-170’s built in ’61.  You will be guaranteed to be the hit of the car shows…”

1951 CJ-3A Salinas, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $2800.

It needs a little work.

“1951 CJ3A Willys Jeep. The Good: Complete, mostly original, flat-four. Also includes full 6-point cage, new tires, new shocks, new gas tank and lines, and new brake lines. The Issues: It has been sitting for a while and was in the middle of a 12-volt conversion that was never finished (no generator or alternator currently) when I bought it, wiring needs attention, turns over and starts, has a couple rust-out spots under the rear tail lights, quater size hole under the drivers seat in the pan, and rust in the rigger body braces under the body near the frame (where the wood was located). No pink slip.

I bought it as a project and have not had the time to finish it. It had been sitting for a while prior to me buying it… I massaged the cylinders with some Marvel oil, added some fresh gas to the carb and it cranked over and it tried to run. Sputtered, puttered, but ran. Since then, I have replaced all the gas lines, cleaned the new tank (it had old gas in it), added two inline filters, new plugs, new wires, and there it sat. Thus, I know it’s not frozen and only needs minor tweaking to run.”

1947 CJ-2A Wenatchee, Wa $2000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

Here’s a pretty good looking project.  It appears some good work has already been done.

“47 CJ2A needs to be assembled. 1.Frame needs brake cylinder kits installed. Have kits. 2 Body has section in tool box under passenger seat that needs patched otherwise it needs small dings fixed. Its in very good condition. 3. Has good windshield and grille and fenders and tailgate. Just need to be bolted on. 4. Engine was supposed to be rebuilt. I put new gaskets in it but ran into problems when I tried to put the oil pump in. It ruined the gears on the pump but have a pump that gears can be taken off of. Not sure what is the problem there. May need a new cam or just a better gear?. Flywheel has been turned and ready to install. Have 16″ rims with old tires for it, but the 15″ tires for pushing it around go with it. Have a steering wheel but needs to be epoxyed. I have too many projects right now so I decided to sell it, but will keep it if I can’t get what I have into it out of it. Body and parts are really nice condtion.”

1957 CJ-3B Gloucester, VA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8000

ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK THE VIN … THIS WAS A FUN ONE: The seller noted on ebay that this is a ’57, but it has the older, pre’57 dash.  That raised a flag.  So, I looked closely at the VIN:  The first set of numbers are 55268 instead of 453 GB2. That VIN actually belongs to a 1956 Pickup Truck 6 cyl (226 ci) with 4wd with a serial number of 33836.  See this service bulletin for the details.

“Very original Willys CJ3B. No body lift, original 4cyl engine, manual lockers on front, 3 speed trans. Color is Red, original upolstry in great shape and this has rear bench seat. Tool box under passenger seat. 4 good tires – spare is for decoration. Has AM/FM cassette and Jensen speakers under dash on firewall. Top is serviceable. No Bondo.”

Motor Update #2

• CATEGORIES: News

UPDATE: I called Steve (see below) and he had a perfect engine for me, a 1985 Buick 3.8L for only $199.  Unfortunately, I waited until Saturday to go see the engine and it was sold by then!  However, someone else responded to my Ad.  As part of a parts liquidation they bought, they have a pair of rebuilt heads that are exactly what I need.  So, this should work out perfectly (I should have them by Tuesday and will provide an update then). Hopefully, this resolves the issues with my engine!

(03/25/2010) I placed a I-need-heads-for-my-buick-v6 ad on Craigslist tonight.  I got responses right away. I also located an engine (and tranny) for $125, a brand new rebuild engine in Kennewick for $500, and a running engine in Tacoma for $100.  It’s been a good day for parts hunting!

Steve contacted me. He’s local (actually lives in Eagle, Id).  He’s liquidating a bunch of rebuild motors with new re-manufactured blocks.  They are all being sold for $199.  You can read more about these motors here: http://boise.craigslist.org/pts/1650718277.html
If you like something you see in that list, let me know and I’ll check it out.

I can’t tell what’s left to do, but it’s got some good components.

“This is a 1954 Willy’s M38A1. It has a Buick V6 bolted to a Turbo 400 that in turn bolts to a Dana 300 transfer case. The V6 has Hedman headers and HEI ignition set up. This Jeep also has a brand new Hurst shifter set up. It sits on BFG 33-12.50/15 all terrain tires, all tires are in good shape. The front bumper is custom and has a built in tow bar, whoever buys it will be able to tow it away. This was a project that has stalled out. I don’t have room for it, nor the time to finish it. There is work that needs to be finished for it to run. This Jeep will make a good rock crawler platform. Call Jim at 775-303-4424 for more info. I can also E-mail more pics.”
