4 core radiator
original military winshield (flips up and folds down)
original military grill and fenders
full roll bar
power steering with saginaw box
hydraulic clutch

im selling this cheap because its an ongoing project and its not without its share of problems. It has come a long way since i bought it and up until recently its been a badass wheeler, but its time for me to part with it. The motor is the main problem at this point it just wont dial in. If i were to keep it i would put a different motor in it. It starts but just doesnt run right, distributor/timing isnt jiving which causes it to overheat and it has a moderate miss. I want to sell it whole but will consider parting out, i would have to sell the axles in a pair Or trans and transfer in 1 before I sell everything else.. after one of those two are gone everything is up for sale.”

Builds: Kurtis finds Ike and starts a restoration

• CATEGORIES: Builds, CJ-3A, Features

In early April of 2010, Kurtis found a solid looking, stock 1950 CJ-3A named Ike that he plans to restore to off-the-dealer-floor condition.  He’s built a website ( to chronicle his restoration adventures and recently provided some good details on a V-Cell Radiator.

Good luck on your restoration Kurtis; I think it will turn out well!  Here’s a pic of Ike:

JeepGod’s Jeep Manufacturers List

• CATEGORIES: Features, Website

I ran across JeepGod’s website today.  There’s a variety of interesting tidbits on the site, including an inexpensive solution for an air compressor, a nicely drawn out map for navigating Uwharrie National Forest in North Carolina, and the below list of Jeep Manufacturers, which provides some details into the specific companies that manufactured the vehicles we generally describe as Jeep or Willys.  I hadn’t thought of organizing a list quite like this, so I thought I’d highlight it for readers. It’s certainly not an exhaustive list, as there’s no FC-170 listed, but that’s a minor quibble I think.

Jeep Cakes!

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

Who knows why I search for the things I do sometimes, but for some reason I had the urge to search for Jeep Cakes.  Now, I rarely eat cakes of any kind; however, I thought this might provide some interesting search results and pictures.  So, below are a few of my results.  If this list isn’t long enough, search here for more.

First, I’ll start off with a cake I was presented with on my birthday back in 2003 — my 2nd ex-wife (yes, I might need a scorecard to start tracking my relationships) and her mother transferred one of my favorite images onto a birthday cake.

Here’s one with a roll cage from

Here’s a cake with a ‘jeep’ on a hill:

This cake ‘rocks’:

This is called the Jeep Adventure Cake:

According to the description, this cake is “an army jeep cake, fondant covered with gum paste accessories. the hill is another layer of cake as well, buttercream-covered with cookie crumbs on top”

Here’s a $195 cake from

This driver and his faithful dog appear headed into the waves:

From we have another ‘flattie’:

And finally, from the UK courtesy of Sara Cakes, we have this army jeep (categorized as a grand dad cake no less ..hmmm). It even has tools on the sides!

Old Car Manual Project Website


I feel fortunate that dad kept his old manuals around so that when I started working on my Jeep (and this was pre-internet), I had a some good resources at hand to help me puzzle through problems.  Specifically, he had a 1969 Chilton that seems to contain information about engines and transmissions related to every automobile made that year (and if not everyone, at least most).

Even in the post-internet age with Google at our fingertips (I actually keep my laptop on a special shelf that I’ve used many times while working on things in the garage), sometimes finding old information can be difficult (like the proper firing order for a 231 buick V6).  It’s these type of searches where an old manual is a godsend (and which I turned to so I could finally figure out the firing order).

All this comes to mind as Mark forwarded me a link to the OldCarManualProject Website.  There is a ton of information here, though sometimes it takes some digging to find it.  It is particularly full of Chevy Manuals.  For example, here is the complete service manual for all 1938 Chevrolet Passenger Cars and Trucks.  So, if you love or own older vehicles, this is worth some surfing (though I didn’t see many Jeep specific manuals).
