1956 CJ-3B Charlotte, NC $6500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: , .

The windshield looks a little unusual on this CJ-3B.  It appears to be well maintained.

“This is a 1956 jeep willys cj3b, it has a F-head 134 engine, T90 tansmission(3spd, 4wd works like a champ, superwinch hubs. dana44 rear axle, exterior recently painted and has a bedliner coating in the back as well as the front of the interior of the tub…. Its missing two guages and needs a little bit of wiring but its a nice jeep for someone to tinker with but it is a blast to drive, the serial number is 32720 and in doing some research I found out that this jeep came from the west coast which explains why it has very minimal rust.”

I don’t see any obvious issues with this CJ-5.  This appears to be a great price.  Minor note: the year in the title of the Ad differs from the year in the description.

CJ-3B Roll Cage Redmond, Wa $600

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

This is a nice rollcage.  The seller suggests it could be used on other flatfenders, but the bends in the front near the dash would look a little odd for low hood flatties.

“For sale roll cage only. fits cj3b high hood, powder coated, with full sand pad on the top. plenty strong. may fit other flat fenders? 600.00 obo”

New: A Collection of eBay results for 1/4 ton flat fenders …

• CATEGORIES: News

Last month I happened upon the fcConnection ebay auction results.  I thought that was a great idea, so I thought I’d add something similar.  It took me a while to get around to building it, but here it is http://www.ewillys.com/?page_id=2480. The main menu above now contains an “ebay results” link as well.

My goal is to develop a database of prices just to see what kind of prices sellers are getting on ebay, which are stats I haven’t followed much.  I will be focusing on the 1/4 ton flat fenders (Models: MB, GPW, CJ-2, CJ-2A, CJ-3A, M-38, CJ-3B, DJ-3A).

To get my information, I’m using the eBay watch system to keep tabs on flat fender auctions.  When an auction concludes, I’ll post it.

1948 CJ-2A Thurman, Ia eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

This is a stock looking CJ-2A in great shape.

I am selling this Jeep for my 80 year old father. No one drives it any more so it needs to go to a new home. I would consider this in good condition, runs and drives nice. Two owners since new. 55,452 miles and all original except the chrome wheels are off a IH Scout and are a little rusty. Also a little rust under the cluch pedal. Motor overhauled less than 100 miles ago.”

1942 MB Holden, Mo eBay

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB

This MB looks like a play jeep.  It does not appear to be licensed.  I wonder if the stock axles were upgraded.  I’d think that power and those tires would be hard on stock MB axles.

“I’VE OWNED LOTS OF JEEPS IN THE PAST, BUT THIS ONE IS MY FAVORITE IN THE PAST I’VE TURNED DOWN NUMEROUS OFFERS TO SELL IT BUT COULD NOT PART WITH IT. WILLY HAS A 283 CHEVY V-8 RUNS SMOOTH, QUIET,AND COOL. IT HAS HEADERS AND GLASS PACKS AND SOUNDS LIKE A V-8 SHOULD. IT HAS A 350 TURBO TRANSMISSION WHICH HAS BEEN REBUILT AND IS A STOCK TRANNY. THE REST OF THE DRIVE TRAIN IS STOCK I THINK? WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE 4X4 LOCK OUT HUBS. FOR ADDED DRIVE ABILITY I’VE ADDED A STEERING BOX WITH A GM POWER STEERING PUMP WHICH MADE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE IN MANEUVERING THE 31 X15 GOODYEAR TERRA TIRES ON 14 INCH WIDE STEEL RIMS.”

1942 GPW Parts Portland, Or

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

This seller is parting out a 1942 GPW frame for $50 (though the pictures show the axles, they are no longer there).  Separately, he’s also selling the engine $150 and the tranny/tc $250.  If you are collecting GPW parts, this might be worth checking out.  It sounds the seller is looking to get this out of the drive way.

The Frame Ad:
“1942 Willys GPW frame for sale. Need to sell to get it out of my yard. Would rather have it go to a jeep lover than the scrap guy. $50 bucks and it is all yours. The engine, transmission and axles are NOT included just the frame (sorry old pictures they are not attached now). Get back to me to set up a time to see it.”

The Engine Ad:
“Engine block from 1942 Ford GPW with the bell housing all original and ready to sell at $150. It needs a Willys jeep lover to work on it but will be worth it. Come by and take a look.”

The Tranny/TC Ad:
“Willys 1942 GPW transmission shifts smoothly all original, this needs a good home not my garage. Come on by and take a look then take it home. $250 and it is yours. Original Willy’s rebuilt ones cost $750 and up, the case alone is $200 for a reproduction one. Get back to me to set up a time to see it.”

Aluminum Wheels from CJ-7 Longview, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Tires and Rims

UPDATE: **SOLD** Were $150.

These are a reasonable price.  I haven’t seen many of this style for sale.

“These are a set of wheels that came on a CJ-7 that I recently purchased. I used some other wheels, so I no longer need these. They are aluminum, they are a 15 inch diameter rim by 8 inches wide with 4 inch backspacing. These are a 5 lug by 5.50 pattern. That means they will bolt on a Jeep CJ or willys, Ford F150 trucks and Ford Bronco. They come with chrome center caps. There is nothing defective or wrong with the wheels, a little soap and water would do wonders. If you have any questions, please e-mail me and I will get right back to you. Thanks for looking and have a nice day.”

Sand Flat Fender Jeep Tualatin, Or $3000

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

UPDATE:  The price has dropped to $3000 (but only for this weekend — Nov 1st & 2nd 2008).

This CJ-2A sand jeep sports the very rare parkette fiberglass body.  Only a handful of these bodies were made (At one time I was told only about 10 of them).  It sounds like it has some good parts, but it will take some work to convert it to 4wd.

“1941 cj2a military jeep that has a a full fiberglass body so you dont have to worry about rust or dents on this 67 year old jeep! it has a stout good running 350 small block with a 700r transmission. the tread on the tires are very good and i would say have conservitivly 85% of their life left. i just put a brand new radiator on it with all new verrry expensive rad. hosing which is actually 150psi petroleum trasfer tubing so it will never break or pop from heat. 971-645-1635”

My Build — Additional Wiring

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

Over the weekend I completed the wiring along the engine.  I wanted to hide the wires as much as possible, keep them as organized as possible, and not connect them to the fenders.  Below are pictures of the lines run from the alternator, from the fan assembly (the wiring runs from the fan, over the radiator, and down along the grille to meet with the front light wiring) and then the wiring from the grille along the frame to the cowl.

This is the dual fan setup I purchased from North Coast Peformance, an eBay Power Seller.  I fiberglassed the two fans together and built a metal frame to surround them and attach them to the radiator framework.  This setup included a thermostat that slides snuggly inbetween the radiator fins.  These two 10″ fans cover almost the entire radiator, making it a tight fit.  However, between the aluminum radiator and the fans, I should have no overheating problems.
