Crofton Bug

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Unusual

Crosley was the maker of some of the prototype lightweight Jeeps the Army and Willys considered building.  Apparently, Crosley continued down this path of lightweight utility vehicles.  One of the results of this efforts was designed by the Crosley company and called a Farm-O-Road.  The Crofton Bug, based on the Farm-O-Road design was actually produced by the Crofton Marine Engine Company.  Only about 250 Crofton Bugs were built between 1959 and 1962 (or 1963).  Like the jeep, these had some farm tools you could attach to these ‘mini jeeps’.  You can learn more about this 1100lb vehicle at Tom’s Crofton Bug website.

Thanks to Gerald for finding these two pics.



Here’s Tom’s Crofton Bug and a few of his pics.  Drop by his website to learn more about the Crofton Bug and see more images and brochures.

Builds: Gerald’s Brother’s rebuild and more


Gerald send these pics:

1st up, his brother’s build — This is a mixed 1948 CJ-2A.  The front loop is actually out of the red willys you’ll see in the next picture.  They had it stored in the garage for about 15 years.  Reuse and recycle.  Perfect!


Here’s Gerald’s Mom racing around the track around 1979.


These M715 pics are from Sam Winer Motors in Akron around 1992, all crushed now.  I loved that place back then.:



Here’s Gerald’s brother’s cool 1940 Bantam coupe with the 22 hp Hill Master engine in it.

1947 CJ-2A Delran, Nj **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $2500.

The seller notes this has a “head turning paint job”.  I could suggest that it’s not my head that’s turning, but I try not to be so blunt.  If the seller reads this, I’d strongly suggest painting it green.  The value will increase.

“hello this listing is for a 1947 willys jeep i bought about 6 months ago and ive done some work to it but i just have to many toys soo this has to go it has the original flathead engine that runs great smokes a lil bit (rings) the 4 wheel drive works great so does the high and low range. it has a new fuel pump and the radiator was reconditioned and it has a head turning paint job!!! own a peice of history asking.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Shasta Lake, Ca **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Builds, CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE:  **SOLD** .. and it is heading to Norway.  Congrats to James and to the new owner (whom I hope sends pics of it from Norway!). James wants to thank Ron from the G503 Site for helping out with this.

James has decided to sell his 1946 VEC CJ-2A #18526, column shift, driver’s indents, no rust. original docs and rear glass light.  It works great and is in fantastic shape.  He simply wants to have something he can modify and he doesn’t want to modify this CJ-2A because it is in such good shape.

James writes: It has original motor and all ACMs match 8057.  A lot of work was done in 1985 at  Archer Bros, Hayward. Motor wa rebuilt at 51k and is now at almost 62k.  There is no rust.  The springs and shackles not original; instead it has a superlift 2.5″.  The top bow side holders and rear corner brackets have been removed.  The front bumper mount has one ‘bubba weld’ and the rear bumper removed.  I have the original rear light, trailer socket cover, and vacuum wiper. There are rear ‘bubba’ 4″ cutouts for lights.  I’m the 4th owner and have lots of reciepts and docs.  The Original owner had it until  1985, the 2nd to 2007, the 3rd to last year then me.   This cj is a blast to drive and my family loves it, but I just can’t mod it like I want.  It has survived 63 years without any major mods and I don’t have the heart to start ripping it up now.

****SOLD ****

“I have a 52 willys jeep that I bought to restore and drive but ran out of time and money and I am tired of seeing it rust away. I never tried to start it because the guy I bought it from had started to do the wiring. He said that the motor ran but that was three years ago. Jeep is full of parts and pretty much all there. It only has the drivers seat frame and I have 5 almost new military tires and rims for it. Please make offer because I would like to see someone finish this. It also comes with an extra front and rear axle.”
