1946 CJ-2A La Porte, In **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2000.

(04/24/2011) It’s a project.

“I have an Authentic Willy’s Jeep CJ2-A from 1946. We have the windshield frame, pto, two newly restored seats, Willy’s stamped hood, the body, along with five military tires. The engine was stamped by Willy’s and is a flat-head four cylinder. The front fenders are in great shape and one has a hood latch. These parts are all hard to find and could help to restore a CJ you may be working on. I am listing it because I need the room in my garage and I do not have the time to restore it. I have more pictures of it and I would like $2,000 or best offer. ”

While looking up this Crosley (which I’m not quite sure is a Crosley), I discovered the largest Mircocar Museum in the world.  The bad news is that it appears closed until Fall 2011 for renovations.  However, you can look through the virtual tour to see the types of cars owned by the museum.

Think Twice Before Going Around a Locked Gate

• CATEGORIES: Features

According to NWJEEPN.com, an offroader made the mistake of going around a locked gate in order to explore some dirt roads in Clark County, WA.  He was caught and punished. As part of his sentencing, he had to publicly apologize via the below YouTube Video.  That seems a novel use of YouTube.

1946 CJ-2A Savannah, Tn eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

I suspect the VIN on this is just under 30,000?  I’m a little surprised that both the dataplates and the vin plates are missing.  I also think those are the ford rims that don’t have the proper center size.

“This Jeep is truly a barn find. The body is in great condition and the chassis needs building. Theres only minimal rust but the engine is probably locked up. The transmission shifts and it does roll. I bought it to put the body on a chassis that I had rebuilt. This Jeep has the rare column shift that shifts fine. Floorboards are good, frame is good but it just needs alot of attention. I just dont have time to finish my project. Title in hand. Been in a barn all its life till I bought it. Its been in a warehouse since.”

1942 MB Kelseyville, Ca eBay

• CATEGORIES: MB

This has a few changes.

“1942 Willys Jeep with clear California Title. This cool little jeep fires right up and runs great. The Willys motor is strong and I have receipts for a new clutch and a rebuild on the original T90 transmission. Master cylinder and wheel cylinders were gone through with new bearings at that time (in 93). The previous owner used it on his ranch for the last 20 years. It was used by a local logging company for several years out in the woods so the pan had some rust issues which they fixed by welding steel plate over top of. The gas tank has been relocated. Speedo and Gauges all work except fuel.

A good project you can drive and enjoy while restoring it, or if you have a jeep already that needs great running gear here you go. Check the pictures and video closely as I am no expert and will not be able to answer any “originality questions”. Thanks and Good Luck. Buyer to pay all shipping costs. Will store here for 30 days.We will load onto your transport and can help with getting a shipper.”

1950 Jeepster & Parts Port Huron, Mi eBay

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster

There appear to be lots and lots of jeepster parts.

“I have a 1950 Willys  Jeepster restoration project that is in process and unfortunately can not be completed by me at this time. There are a lot of parts that are included in the sale of this vehicle. Almost two complete vehicles. There are 2 body’s or tubs ( one from AZ ), 4 hoods, 2 sets of fenders, 4 cowls, 2 sets of wheels, one f4 inline four cylinder motor, one 3-speed manual transmission with optional overdrive, 2 frames, 1 compete freshly rebuilt rear axle assembly (all new bearings and seals), 4 doors, 3 top frames, 2 front suspension , 3 sets of seat frames, 3 steering columns, front and rear cowls, spare tire mounts & belly pans, 3 windshield frames, front and rear bumper assembly, 7 door vent window frames, 3 fuel tanks, lots of chrome trim, step pads, plus over 25 boxes of items from gauges, radios, heater boxes,  lights and much much more. All of these items are used. There are parts from both modules the 49 and the 50. Like on the one tub from AZ is a 49 with the dash being the only difference and there are two 1949 hoods that are flat across the front and a molding down the center and 2 cowls that are straight across the front and not v out in the center.

Also included is over  $1500.00 new in the box parts from Kaiser Willys auto supply . A complete master brake kit ( brake-sw2 ), complete suspension kit ( suspension-9 ), plastic fuel tank ( mts-0018a ), fuel sending unit (914848), king pins ( 801580).

I had the frame sandblasted, painted and was starting to assemble the suspension and rear axle. The frame is painted with por 15 and had only 2 small spots that needed to be repaired do to a/m exhaust brackets. There is one complete set of body panels that has been media blasted.

This restoration was being completed with the best of parts and everything was being inspected so the repairs would be top of the line, so that we would have many years of enjoying the vehicle with no other repairs being necessaries after completion.
The engine does have the oil pan and valve covers removed and the pistons and cylinder walls are in like newly rebuilt condition. The clutch and slave cylinder are also in like new condition. I can not say when these items were rebuilt or replaced by the prior owner. The vehicle did run and drive before the start of this project in aug of 09. It still has the 6 volt generator system.

You could very easy build 2 vehicles ( with the addition of a few parts of your own i.e. motor and trans ) with the parts that are included in this sale plus have many left over.

The photos of the white Jeepster are from before we started the tear down. Right now I would guess it would take two car trailer plus a pickup bed to haul everything away.

I have over 100 photos of the vehicle at different steps of the restoration. Copy’s can be included with the sale if you would like. If there is any one item you would like me to verify the condition of, please email me.

The vehicle is in Port Huron ,MI 48060 and you are more then welcome to come and inspect it at anytime or email me with any questions you have.”

Glenn Miller’s Jeep Band

• CATEGORIES: Features

According to the University of Colorado, in 1943 Glenn Miller was asked to “organize a group of outstanding AAF bands to boost morale.  Each would contain musicians especially selected from the draft.  Each would be trained to play both inspiring marching music and outstanding dance band music.  He envisioned himself as a morale and band builder.  While working to achieve his objectives, Miller encountered frustrating opposition from some officers within the military bureaucracy.  He did, however, have powerful allies in Washington, who helped him to circumvent red tape.”

Called the “Band of the Training Command of the Army Air Forces under the direction of Capt. Glenn Miller” and stationed at New Haven, Ct, Miller continued to run into some problems. “A famous, if exaggerated, story soon circulated wherein a military official scolded Miller for ruining traditional Army marching music, saying that Sousa marches were as perfectly fine in 1943 as they had been in 1917, to wit Miller reportedly replied, “Tell me, Major, are we still flying the same airplanes that we did in 1917?”

Despite continued flack from those who disagreed with Miller’s plans, Miller continued to make changes. A newsreel eventually captured a practice session. “The newsreel showed off what was called the ‘jeep band’.   That is, the marching band’s big drum sets and drummers that were carried aboard jeeps and driven alongside the musicians as they marched on the Green or at the Yale Bowl.  The AAF apparently thought Miller was doing the right thing because he simply kept on doing it, much to the delight of the young people in the services who were marching and listening to Miller’s “updated military music”.

This image comes from the University of Colorado Music Department.  I searched for other images on the net, but didn’t have any luck.

The Wonderful Life of Wilbur the Jeep by Wilbur Schram

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features

You might have seen one or another of these images illustrated by Normal Rockwell, but did you know there’s a story as well?  Published in the January 29th, 1944, edition of the Saturday Evening Post, the story was written by Wilbur Schram, who went on to be called the “father of communication studies” in the United States. The story appears to be a fun, fictional tale of a jeep named Wilbur and his exploits.  Unfortunately, I could not find any copy of the full text anywhere on the net.

Here is the best snapshot I found on Flickr about the article.

Bobcat Fiberglass Body and Front Clip Vancouver, Wa **SOLD**

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $300.

Here’s a good price on a complete body kit, even if it does need some repairs.  I don’t think the Bobcat bodies are as old as 1958, though I don’t know the initial date of production.  I don’t recognize the style of taillights.

“Old Willys fiberglass body, hood, fenders, and grill can be yours right now!  Approx 1958 is the model year.  This is a “bobcat” fiberglass set, needs just a little work. This project can be yours for 300 or best offer!”

1942/43 GPW De Soto, MO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1200.

The seller indicates this is in bad shape and it sure looks that way.  The seller says no phone calls unless serious, but doesn’t list a phone number.

“I have a Ford GPW project jeep for sale, I am trying to decide whether or not I want to keep it for a future project or just sell it now. This is not a fire sale, but if someone wants the stuff they can buy it, but I am not giving it away.

I have the entire jeep, 1942 # GPW 46940, it is in fairly bad shape, but could be restored. No hood, and the grill has been cut on and will need replaced, the dash has been cut, and someone cut a tailgate in it. Red in color now. No side handles. Windshield frame is good, inner windshield frame needs repaired or replaced. Has good WWII Trico vacuum wiper motors that are still attached. No seat frames. No combat rims, no top bow brackets, etc. Front frame horns need replaced as a custom bumper has been welded on, rear bumper is also custom.

Floor pans in front are not too bad, rear has holes, half of the hat channels are surprisingly good. Rear storage boxes have small holes in them.

NO TITLE or Data Plates.

I also have a WWII Ford GPW Jeep Engine for sale. It is GPW 114579, It does not have a GPW cylinder head, but instead comes with an early Willys unit with no “Jeep” or “Willys” cast into it. The piston, rods, and crank are still in it. Had been bored .030 over and .010 under on the crank, and will need to be bored again or probably sleeved due to rust on the cylinder walls. No obvious cracks anywhere, the area under the distributor looks good.

The engine is just a short-block, no intake, exhaust, or any accessories, just the block, crank, rods and pistons, timing chain and cover, and camshaft.

I also have a GPW marked T-84 trans that will need rebuilt, and a GPW marked transfer case with correct parking brake mechanism for sale as well. I will take $500 for the pair of them.

I will take $700 for the jeep.
$500 for the engine
$500 trans and transfer case

If you want the whole thing, engine, transmission, transfer case, and the jeep, I will sell it all for $1200.”
