Enjoying the Holidays

• CATEGORIES: videos

I’ve been enjoying some fun time with my kids during the past week; driving the jeep has become one of the favorite activities, despite the freezing temps.  I finally got brave enough to let Karson drive off in it by himself (well, only around the block).  So, here’s a video of it for those interested.

One of the things I’ve been noticing as I watch the video is that the jeep slopes backwards more than intended.  But, that doesnt’ trouble me too much, because I had planned to change out the stock XJ springs for some XJ springs with a 2″ lift.  Well, either that or I can mount the springs over the top.  For now, they’ll work fine though.

1946 CJ-2A Sahaurita, Az $2700


It’s hard to tell much from the pic.

“1946 Willys CJ-2A. Original drivetrain with flathead four cylinder engine. Clear AZ title, not registered. Body has some rust but it has mostly been repaired (needs paint).
Comes with towbar, removeable shade (golf cart top that clamps to the roll bar), and service manual.
Many upgraded and/or new parts within last several years (the Jeep has rarely been used during this time):

– Transmission (three speed) and transfer case rebuilt
– Steering box rebuilt with all new parts, one-piece tie rod conversion, new steering wheel
– Brand new gear-reduction starter
– 12V electrical system with GM alternator, headlights work
– Flush-mount taillights installed but not hooked up
– Carburetor rebuilt, adjustable fuel pressure regulator
– 7.00-15 tires (much easier to find then original 6.00-16)
– Rebuilt master cylinder, and new wheel cylinders
– Re-lined transmission parking brake and new cable (comes with it but not installed yet)

I have owned it for eleven years and used it for hunting and four-wheeling. It could be made street-legal fairly easily, but with 60 hp, 9″ brakes and 5.38 gears it is much better suited for off-road use.
I am selling it because I no longer use it and have too many vehicles. I will consider offers, and will also consider a trade for a big quad or a smaller RV travel trailer (no cars or trucks,etc). Please respond via craigslist or call Al at 490-1963. I can send several other pictures upon request.”

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $800.

“1946 Willys CJ2A – I never have had the time or money to restore this Jeep. This Jeep has an International 4 cylinder engine in it (not original). I had the engine running in 2000, but blew a gasket or something and haven’t done anything to it since then. If you are interested in a restoration project or building a great offroad machine, this would be great for either. Body has minor surface rust and some bad bondo from previous owner. Additionally, new floor pans were installed at some point. Come and take a look. I will try to put up pictures at some point – it currently is serving as a shelf in my garage so not very photo worthy!”

1960 Willys Wagon Port Townsend, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Was $5000. **SOLD**

I just love the fact that this was the seller’s daily driver for years.

“My maroon Willys station wagon that has been around Port Townsend for the last eighteen years (parked in front of Hilltop Texaco for five of those) is now for sale for $5000. This was my daily driver until five years ago when I decided to make it 4 wheel drive. I have collected and built absolutely the best components to accomplish that but too many other projects have taken over my time. It currently has a tired but functional Chev 350 and a turbo 350 tranny with a Lokar shifter with e-brake and a positraction Dana 44 rear. I just installed the rechromed bumpers, the rest of the chrome is good. The wood runners in the back are in excellent condition also. It has the hard to find original seats that I reupholstered several years ago. Components that I have to go with it are; rebuilt 700R4 trans that was mated to a NP 205 (all gear, no chain) transfer case, Dana 44 front and rear differentials, new loaded calipers for the front, Advance adapters Saginaw power steering kit, an extra set of five original 16 inch wheels with old Michelin tires on them, a new tailgate hinge and tailgate lower repair section (which it really does not need) and a complete rear clip from a “barn door” (side opening doors) vehicle. I have collected boxes and boxes of spare things like speedometers, door handles, windows, steering wheels and so much other stuff that I can’t remember all of it. ”

1959 DJ-3A Redlands, Fl $1175


UPDATE:  Price dropped to $1175

(11/7/09) You can’t say this seller hasn’t tried to give you a complete overview of this jeep.  There is a total of 37 images.  It’s rough, but it is a column shift 2 wheel drive with a tailgate.  It’s supposed to run well.

“Willys Jeep dj3a Overland this is the 2 wheel drive model with L-134 engine with three speed on the column.  Not just a L-134 engine but a industrial L-134 engine.  This engine runs real good as you can see in the video plus the oil is super clean like someone went through this engine.  As you can see in the video I pulled the dipstick out and you can see how clean the oil is. And that was after a half an hour of running plus driving it in the yard….”

Converto Airborne Dump Trailer Jeep WW2 **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: trailer

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

“This WW2 trailer was originally design for the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers to be used as both a general purpose cargo trailer much like the Willys MBT/ Bantam T3 and specifically for use beyond the capability of the MBT/T3’s; for moving and dumping material. It is estimated that there were about 6500 of these trailers produced during WW2 and is ideally pulled by a Ford GPW or Willys MB jeep or a dozer.









The Dump action is controlled by the middle lever which tilts the bed. The side lever directly under the data plate controls the tailgate itself. When the side lever is pulled the tailgate swings out from the bottom. It’s also possible to pull the top pins and fold it down from the top or remove the tailgate completely. The dump levers can actually operated from the drivers seat of a jeep by pulling on the rope which the end loop rests on the base of the shifter. So the load is not accidently dumped, both the bed tilt and the tailgate mechanism have safety pins. Also the tailgate has a small gate which exposes a circular hole to pour out smaller amounts of material or can be a port for a nozzle to distribute liquids in their own container. Another unique feature of the trailer is the bed itself can be detached by pulling the two large dump pins and driving away. *Notably the trailer did not come with fenders from the factory

“This particular trailer is very complete and has all the important components typically missing: -Original tailgate -pins and chains -Thick lunette -Reinforced combat rims
-landing leg -Both cast dump latches -Dump levers”

For a 60+ year old trailer the trailer is in truly amazing condition. It is incredibly straight and solid. There are literally only 3 or 4 dents or dings in the entire trailer and no bowed panels. This trailer is one of the finest examples of these trailers I have ever seen. Unlike the few other Converto dump trailers I have seen or owned. The the panels and pieces where lined up very well for assembly from the factory; the original welds are clean and almost uniform. Considerable effort was made to make this trailer as correct as possible with attention to the smallest details Including hand brushing the blue drab USA Number. The document pouch, data plate, custom rivets, pins, and chains where created or obtained to match the original. Body filler was not used in the preservation and there are only a few small flaws. The front (not the entire) of the bed is bit pitted (this can be seen in the pictures with the manual), there are three smaller than a pencil size holes by the tailgate round hole gate, there are a few small flaws in my paint job and as mentioned there are three small dents all smaller then a quarter one in each top rail and one in the bed. Again this is one is very solid and complete.

The trailer has recently received:  -A Very hard to find NOS US ARMY Corp of Engineers document pouch with custom rivets -original pointed tread Goodyear 6.00×16 NDT tires -three wire cloth inter-vehicular cable composed of NOS components -NOS BO light switch -CB taillights -All NOS lights -reflectors
-NEW Wiring Harness from Vintage wiring of Maine – a few new pins and chains -Reinforced combat rims -TM5-9084 with supplement -Data plate from Robert de Ruyter -New Paint -hand Brushed Markings in blue drab -Trailer Dump lever rope “

3 Flat Fender Projects Wenatchee, Wa


There’s a variety of parts and projects here with prices that vary.

“1st jeep has the most potential and while the picture does not show it, it has a grille and other parts that can be put together to make a good one. It has rear diamond plate for the corners and diamond plate for the sides. It does have a windshield that needs put together. No seats or titles on any of them. It has saginaw front end which is optional I will keep it if you want to dicker. If you plan to install a bigger engine I will keep the engine and transmission and transfer case too. Engine is a L head than turns over by hand but someone got the carb and starter. It has a roll bar of sorts. Price depends on if you want the saginaw and engine. $300 with out all that. $650 with all that.

2nd jeep is a basket case and frames front has cracked totally off. But it has a round cross bar that can be used on the first jeep that some idiot cut off the original and put L iron to fit the saginaw on it. Or you can weld it back together and start a rebuild of a second jeep. it has axles but no power plant or transmission or transfer case. $150 for it.

The third is just a body and hood. It was a rare long body that someone cut down to a CJ3A size. Welds need to be finished on that part. Body could be used on one of the other two if you wanted. Might have another windshield in need of repair for it too. $200 for it.

As I said no titles but they can be gotten. I believe data tags are on one at least. I have extrea transfer cases that may need rebuild for $100. And some other extra parts for those that buy all three of them. Including axles. Have other small parts that I will make deal on if you buy all. I just need parts to finish my 2A. Might consider trading for things I need for the 2A like seats or guns or other old interesting item. Especially jeep PTO’s for the front and back or an overdrive. Or Jeepster parts from 48 and 49. I am keeping the roll cage for the 3A for now. But with the right offer will sell it too. It is one that is done well with sides that fit the contour of the CJ2 and 3A frame. $450. These are projects as you can see. And as I said I have hundreds of various small parts too for sale. And for the right trade or take all I will think about a better deal. Also have a F head that needs gone through. It used to turn over by hand but now doesn’t. has a regular oil filter system on it for spinning oil filters and upgraded carb. Long story. $250. Had it in a flat fender and it ran then.
