FarmJeep.com

• CATEGORIES: Features, Website

I stumbled upon the farmjeep website this morning.  It includes two extensive rebuilds, one about Ole Blue and one about Old Yeller.  Both appear to have been in poor shape when they ‘retrieved’ them.  Fortunately, the site authors have documented the restorations well.  Also, a nice jeep family history is part of the site, including an image of a jeep with side skirts, something I’ve never seen before.

For those into farm jeep implements, the site includes a great list of vintage farm jeep ads and an overview of farming aides for the jeep, including PTOs, lifts and more.

UPDATE:  This DJ-3A is back for round 2 of eBay.  An opening bid of $2250 has been made.  Reserve has not been met.

This is a nice looking DJ-3A.  I’m a little surprised that at an opening bid of $2500 there are no bids.

Increasing old Jeep Sales and the Economy

• CATEGORIES: Features, News

Christopher made an interesting point in one his comments.  He mentioned that he’s seeing more jeeps for sale.  Well, oh boy, did this get me thinking ….. and while this is tangentially related to jeeps, it more about my thoughts on the economy.

I agree wholeheartedly with Christopher.  I believe the number of flat fenders appearing for sale is greater now, and the prices better, than I’ve seen since I started following them (which is only 2 years mind you).  Most of the ads appear to have the same theme, ‘don’t want to sell but need the money’.  Now, I don’t keep actual stats on this, but I have been pondering ways to do this without it being a time burden …

Combing Trends

When I combine the jeep sale trend I see with the recent October filings for unemployment insurance (highest in 16 years) and the record drop in October US house sales (worst in 50 years), plus the number of job applications per job here in Boise, I get the feeling the economy is still heading downward.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1800.

“1946 CJ2A Jeep with Arctic Top. Engine runs good, rebuilt starter and Carburetor. New tires. This jeep needs some body work (after all, it’s 62 years old.) The frame rails are solid, only surface rust that I’ve seen. I’m sure I’ve done some other things to it. If I think of them I’ll edit the posting. And yes, the carburetor has been covered at all times. I just took off the cover for the pic. I’ll sell the Jeep without the Arctic Top for $1600.00. Prices are firm. These Jeeps are getting more valuable daily. I just don’t have the time for it any more”

1942 GPW Modesto, Ca **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Was on eBay. **SOLD**

“Here is MB 192498 which is a December 1942 MB. I found the jeep on a farm here in California and it is a very solid jeep. The old guy I bought it from had owned it for over 40 years and used it for irrigation in the hay fields. There is very little rust but it does have some dints and dings. It has an F head motor that I was told runs and just needs a battery but I would have a mechanic check it out. It has all the gauges and an early windshield. I can provide a correct L head engine for an additional $500.”

15×15 Rims with 5 x 5.5 bolt pattern Longview, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Tires and Rims

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $100

This is a great price on 4 rims for wide tires such as paddle tires.  Someone was looking for a set of these but whom … hmmm.

“The are a chrome modular wheel. I was using them on my CJ5. I Had sand paddles mounted on them. These are 15 inch with the 5 on 5.50 (five and a half) bolt pattern. They have no scratches, rust, dents etc. They are in near perfect condition. Since I was using them for sand tires, I was running them with a ten inch wide up front and a twelve inch wide in the rear for the paddles. “

1946 CJ-2A Albany, NY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1800.

Sounds like it needs a little work.  Strangely, no step-side drain holes or a gas inlet hole.  I’m not sure whether the back is solid or not.

“46 Jeep CJ2A with some other parts, like the windshield is 53.- Military colors, this is a great farm jeep or offroad project. Runs great, great rubber. Floor pan has some rot. Frame and all other parts and metal are in good shape. Front seats in good shape. 12volt conversion done and makes it street legal. We used it for the summer house, comes with full doors and top.”

1949 CJ-3A Stratford, WI $750

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

This jeep has a 30 front and 44 rear with posi and 4:10 gears.  This is a great price.  Where were these jeeps when I was looking a year and a half ago!  The fenders have been lengthened, which explains the odd hood.  I wonder if this is a later model frame.

“1949 Jeep Willys 4×4 CJ-2A flat fender. Body and frame in good-excellent shape with very minimal rust for the year. Roll bar installed with a fold down windshield and newer black jeep cj-7 seats. NO rear seat. Front axle is a Dana 30 with drum brakes with a Dana 44 rear. The rear axle has a positrac unit installed (not welded or Lincoln locked), 4.10 gears front and rear. The brakes for being drums work surprisingly well. The engine is an international scout v8 345 with a holley 2 barrel carb mated to a 3 speed manual transmission and a dana 20 twin stick tcase.”

One look at the parts list and you’ll see a lot of similarities to my build.  While the ‘needs TLC’ always raises an eyebrow, if the updated parts were installed well and the body is in good condition, then I think this price is rocking.

Reader Builds — More on Paul’s 1944 MB

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features

Paul has supplied us with some additional pics and an explanation of the mounting system.  You can view the full article about Paul’s jeep here.

“The first pic with the hood open shows the two Dzus (brand name) (learn how to pronounce Dzus) fasteners which help hold the hood down when inserted into the brackets shown in the 2nd pic.  The brackets are just above the yellow ignition coil and next to the master cylinder.  I also use another fastener (for a total of 4 to hold the hood) on the back side of the flat fenders.  The last image shows another view of the ½” pipe as it is bolted to the top side of the flat fenders. ”

Steel Side Guards for flatties Spokane, Wa $35

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts

I don’t know whether these are made anymore (anyone know)?  What I do know is that this is the first set I’ve seen for sale in two years of watching craigslist.  In addition, I haven’t seen a design quite like that. Normally, the steel is taller and goes up farther on the body.

“Here is a pair of vintage side rocker panel guards for a flatfender Jeep. They are steel and have some pittting from age but are straight! Hide that nasty rust with these vintage goodies!

This is a beautiful CJ-3A.

“This vehicle was purchased new by a California doctor who kept it on his ranch most of it’s life. I bought it in 2003. I believe the +/-56,000 is probably accurate.The only thing that is off of original is the seat belts and roll bar which I added. It has been repainted but is original color. The seats have been rebuilt and the top was replaced. Recently(early this year) I installed all new brake drums, shoes and cylinders, also new (less than 50 miles) Michelin tires.”

My Build — Playing With the Roll Cage Design

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

I thought I’d reassemble my mockup roll cage to see how everything is coming together.  After making a few small changes, I’ve decided the front hoop will need to go up about an 1″ or so and the back hoop will need to drop about 2″, which should provide a more balanced look to the cage and allow a top to fit more easily.
