Fiberglass Body Sold — Update

• CATEGORIES: News

Don came buy and purchased the fiberglass body I had for sale.  He said he just couldn't pass it up, though he didn't really need it, but thought one of his family members could use it.  I think he was most interested in creating a template from the grille to make other fiberglass grilles.  

Don belonged to the Bobtails Jeep Club.  When I was growing up, the Bobtails were a jeep club with members mostly in the Eastern Kent and Auburn area of Washington State.  I told him I thought they had dissolved, but he said there a few left, including his family members, but they are scattered (as are most other clubs).  He said all he and his family do is race, so their vehicles are exclusively race focused.  They had just been racing this past weekend down in Chehalis.  I guess about 30 jeeps showed up to race.

Craigslist — A study in honesty

• CATEGORIES: Features, News

As a number of readers can attest, I've done a variety of craigslist deals (probably close to 40).  This time, I had a '73 CJ-5 radiator I wanted to sell, so naturally I listed it on Craiglist. A potential buyer contacted me and said he was very interested, but couldn't come look at the radiator until after I had left for Seattle.  So, I told him I would put the radiator outside and if he wanted it, to put the money into an envelope I pinned to the house.

Sure enough, two days later the radiator was gone and the money was inside the envelope. I was happier about the honesty than about the money 🙂

In fact, I've only had one deal where I didn't get all my money.  I swapped a dirty 350 Cadillac motor I really didn't want for some guages, competition coil and a few other parts.  The kids I swapped with was maybe 18 and didn't have a way to pickup the engine, so I said I'd charge him gas money to deliver it.  When I got there he said he didn't have the money yet, but would mail it.  Unfortunately, despite a couple reminders, I still haven't gotten the money. I plan to stop by his house next time I'm driving by (he's over an hour away) and remind him in person again.

The Former Pittle Power

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features, News

I just got some pics from the owner (who shall remain nameless until he sends me his name 🙂 ) of the jeep formerly known as Pittle Power (I remember it as Piddle Power though).   I don't remember the history of the Jeep prior to Jim and Patty Carter purchasing it, but I believe they purchased it so their growing boys, Tim and Steve, wouldn't have to squish themselves into the back of Otis.  They purchased a stock CJ-3A, installed a chev 4cyl and attached desert dogs.   Otherwise (I'm told) they left everything else stock.  Pittle might not have had much power (hence the name), but it could go 99% of the places the modified WWJC jeeps could go.

The Carter's had a habit of naming all their vehicles.  There was Otis (the jeep), tote-us (the jeep trailer), Brutus (their first motorhome) and more.

Our To-Be-Named contributor writes:

"The Jeep I bought was owned by Jim Carter(original member of the WWJC). The race name was Pittle Power. Skip Baird helped me with my first swap with a V-6 and a top loader. Al Hamilton and I became very close infact I still have one of his pups Mandy she is a very stubborn German Shorthair."

Editor's note:  To the right is the only picture I have of Pittle Power from 1983 (and it's only the hind quarter) hidden behind Danny's CJ-5.  While the Pittle Power was never actually raced, I do remember a club trip to Liberty Trail one weekend.  After we made camp, Tim Carter decided he wanted to head down to the store and asked me to ride shotgun (somehow he knew there was a remote store at the bottom of the hill we were camped on). So, he drove me down that hill in Pittle Power, a ride I remember vividly because we were travelling sideways down the constantly turning gravel road for a good portion of it.    Come to think of it, one time Tim took me for a ride in his late 60's camaro and we travelled sideways heading onto the cloverleaf on ramp to I-405.  Maybe Tim always travelled sideways or I just brought it out of him.

Fiberglass Body and Grille

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit, Body Parts, Features • TAGS: .

Here's a few pictures of the Body and Grille I grabbed while down in Springfield, Oregon a couple of days ago. I need to get a few better pics of it.  I've got it listed for $450 on Craigslist.  

The outside of the body is in excellent shape and would make a great racing shell for PNW4WDA racing. The interior of the body is well designed and strong and could make a good jeeping/street body, however the plywood attached to the bottom is bad in spots, but could be fixed pretty easily.  Also, the firewall has an extra large opening that needs to be closed.  Otherwise, the body looks straight and is pretty light.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $500.

I bought this recently as a project but have found that I have too many home projects to work on it. I bought it from Schaffers Towing in Cd’A. They got it to fire up for a moment and when I brought it home I put a little gas down the carburator and got it to fire momentarily. It turns over nicely now but doesn’t seem to be getting spark…???
The brakes are disconnected and the fuel tank is there but the fuel line runnung up to it is disconnected.
I was told that the motor in it is called a “Hurricane Four” and it has a “Spicer” gear box.
It has some rust and is missing the bed. I have seen some of these with flatbeds.

1951 CJ-3A Texas eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

Most of this CJ-3A looks to be in very good condition.  I'm not a fan of the roll bar though.  The low reserve of $500 means this will definitely be sold.

"Very rare find! This vehicle is showing 306 miles, yes three hundred six miles. I am assuming someone did a full frame off restoration at some point of this Jeeps life and installed those gauges at that time. I recently acquired it so, I am not sure of previous history. But, it appears to have been restored by some one and put away for some time. The paint looks great except for the burnt part on the hood which is not that noticeable until you get right up on it. It also has some minor rust around bolts and hinges and one bubble pictured on the tub right behind the passenger entry area. The body seems solid, the floors seem solid….. Call with any questions please. Thank you. 281-807-9233"

“I’m posting this out of regret but I can’t let it sit much longer. This Overland Willys deservers a new home. It is a 1952 delivery body with a 1959 4WD frame and front end. The tranmission hump was welded in from the 59 into the 52 body (as 4WD was not available in 52 to my knowledge).

It has a 283 small block Chevy V8 as I’m told from a 62 Impalla (engine origin was word of mouth from last owner). A Carter AFB carb. Duel cherry bomb glass pack exhaust. The tranny is the original T90 that was rebuilt about 4k ago with the custom clutch. The tranfer case was not rebuilt but would take minimal work with the basics….
