1947 CJ-2A Senatobia, Ms $2500


UPDATE: Pics now provided.

(03/27/2011) Doesn’t run at the moment.

“I have had it for years and last used it in 2003. I put new tires on it at that time. It has a homemade metal top but no doors. It has a tow bar. It would take a battery and some carb cleaning to get it started up again. That is what I did when I bought it. The bad part as far as mechanical is it has no brakes. I never needed them as it is geared very low in low range and the other thing is when I got it the clutch had no fel to the pedal. I replaced the spring on the throwout bearing and that gave me a working clutch. Well, it has either come loose or broken so it is not working again. The spring is about 2.00 but you have to unbolt the transmission to put it on. I would like to get my aproximately 2500. out of it as I know in a day it would be back running but I do not have time. It has a little slack in the steering but the engine and transmission is fine. You could count the fan revolutions turning when it was running.Asking 2500. but would listen to a trade of something unusual and cash. This little thing would idle through almost anything but my family has no interest in it. Make an offer. It was red when I got it years ago and I spray painted it camo. That paint is coming off so it looks uglier than it really is.It has been kept in my barn. Call 662-288-Six Zero Two Zero”

1963 CJ-3B Lawrenceburg, TN **SOLD**


UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Here’s an ex-Forest Service jeep with plenty of original extras.

“1963 Willys CJ3B U.S.F.S. Jeep for sale. This unit underwent a very expensive rebuild down to the last nut and bolt during 2006-2007. Since then it has lived in our dry garage with a soft cover on it. It has about 540 miles on it and used on sunnydays, a few weddings, parades, crusing the Nathez Trace, etc. I just uncovered it, cranked it up and drove out in the yard and snapped these pictures.If you are a Willys person you can see the care that was taken in putting this unit back into service. The color is 1962 willys cerulean blue with correct seats and covers. We have a rear passenger seat not shown that goes with it. The new sheet metal is from Willys Overland in Toledo, OH. All mechanicals are remanufactured by professionals, no patching, period. In addition to the standard equipment: F-134 Hurricane Engine, 3 spd transnsmission, 2 speed transfer case, original 1962 lock-out front hubs, 16” willys steel wheels. The goverment agencies added from the Willys Dealer on this one: Belt Driven Variable Speed Engine Governor, Rear P.T.O. Drive for Implements, Front P.T.O. Drive for the Keonig King Winch with plasma rope, Warn Over Drive for Highway travel, Fuel Pump with Vacuum Motor to operate 2 Windshield Wipers, F-3 Engine Oil Cleaner, Spartan Self Cancelling Turn Signals and more. Everything is as it should be. We prefer an alternator to insure reliability. The jeep is very quiet, and safe. If you want to built a rust free “new” willys you will spend double the price of this one. If you want to go on fun Jeep Rides and be the talk of any car show, it is available. Look on and go to 1962 owners. It is feautured there with another write-up and more pictures.”

(11/30/2010) Bob spotted this really nice original restoration.  I’d like to see some better pics.  I also really like the color scheme.  I do have a couple minor, really minor detail questions pertaining to originality.  Wouldn’t the bezels have been painting the body paint color (though I think they look better in black)? Also, wouldn’t the rear bumper have had the dropped PTO connector angle (though I like the looks of the bumper that was installed on this)?

Pounced: Biscuit Finally Has Its Name

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit, Features, How To

It was sometime around mid-summer of last year (maybe earlier) when I started the project to place ‘Lost Biscuit’ on the hood of my jeep. It took a little longer than expected, but I finally did it.
First I had to decide which font to use. Fortunately,  I got some very helpful input along the way from Dexter (thanks) and eventually decided upon the Marker Felt font. Okay, that was pretty easy.

Now, how to get the name on the hood. After hmming and haaaing over how I wanted to attach the name (hand drawn, stickers, stencils, pay someone else … ), I finally decided I would do it myself using paint.  But, I knew my freehand drawing and painting skills froze around the 2nd grade, so this wasn’t something I could improvise. Since I had no immediate solutions, I decided to put the project on hold (which explains the delay).

One day this past December I was watching American Restoration on the History Channel.  The American Restoration show is a spinoff of sorts from the Pawn Stars show and follows various restoration projects from Ricks Restoration out of Las Vegas.  In one of the episodes, called Buttered Up (you can view it here), Rick restores an old popcorn machine.

To repaint the front of the popcorn machine, the painter used a technique that dates back centuries called pouncing. Pouncing? My ears perked up!

Pouncing?  Never heard of that. As usual, my computer was on my lap so I instantly googled pouncing.  I learned,

Pouncing is where pounce — loose graphite or charcoal — is rubbed through a series of small holes punched in a paper pattern to transfer the design to an item to be decorated

Well, I thought that would work for Biscuit’s name.  After some more research, I found out that quilters use pouncing for some stitch patterns.  So, the next day I hit some quilt stores.  As you can imagine, the conversation went something like this,

“Hi, I’m here because I want to paint a name on my jeep,” says I.

Blank stare from cashier, “what do you need?”

“I need stuff for pouncing” says I, remembering now that I probably had not shaved, maybe, not even showered, and most likely wasn’t quite dressed like customers they normally help (however, to my credit, I didn’t have on my garage jeans).

Another blank stare, “you want to do what?” I think she even had her finger ready to dial ‘9’ (and then ‘1’ ‘1’)

It turns out, not everyone knows what pouncing is, even at the quilt stores.  Eventually, after visiting a couple quilt stores, I found what I needed (you will see my pouncing supplies in a picture below).

Here’s the synopsis of this project.

1. Design and Print the template.  Then, since I didn’t have a good awl, I created my own awl out of tape, a chopstick and a long push pin.

2. Next, I attached the template to a piece of cardboard.  Then, I poked holes around the outer edge of all the letters.

3. With the letters outlined, I tested out the template on different materials to make sure it worked.  It turns out pouncing is pretty easy!

4. Selecting paint was the next step. So, I visited my local art supply store and explained to them what I wanted.  They directed me to an Acrylic Titanium White Tube from Windsor Newton. Along with the paint, they also suggested an acrylic spray on sealer and finisher from Americana. I took the paint home and tested it on different materials.  At first, I didn’t like it, because it wasn’t as smooth as the typical oil based house paint I had expected.  Instead, it had texture like a canvas artist would want.  But then, after staring at it a bit, I warmed to the texture, because it gave the name a hand generated feel.

5.  Yesterday, with the weather a little warmer, it was time to paint the name.  I got out my template, my paint, and my pouncing supplies.  I taped the template to the hood and prepared to pounce.

Over the course of my tests, the technique I found most successful for pouncing was not tapping the pouncer, but rather dragging it slowly across the holes.  This kept the paper from popping up and blurring the dots underneath.

The pouncing equipment consists of a pouncer with a ‘handle’ on one side and a soft side on the other.  There’s also a plastic container that can hold pounce.  Lastly, there is the white chalk.

6.  Now it’s time to paint.  I put three coats on each side. This image was taken after the first coat.

This is after three coats.

There is still some small edges that need cleaning up.  Once I do that, I’ll spray it and hopefully that will protect it!
