1942 GPW/MB Spokane, Wa $7000


1942_mb_spokaneI’m really not sure if this is a GPW or an MB.  The writing left me confused.  It looks nice.  I think extending that bottom indent across the bottom of the body is an unusual feature (no doubt, part of a body fix). It appears well put together.

“a very FAST 1942 ford jeep , correct a MB1 WWII flat fendered hard to find fast 4×4 for mud bogging trpohies buy this one , 350 chev crate motor ( fender well headers )with only 12,000 miles on it , backed with SUPER T-10 4 SPD also fresh , custom work and a full cage and full canvas with doors , the chassie has lots of upgrades to brakes and hd drive lines n more , am listing for RAY , a friend sooo no need to email me , ya gott a call him spk # 509-484-2265 please no late pm calls , a titled and tabbed FAST tr0phie winner 4 sure”

The paint job on this is interesting.  The bumper is pretty wild; I guess the jeep was used for pushing?

Austin 7 — Grandfather of the Jeep?

• CATEGORIES: Bantam-FordGP-WillysMA-EarlyJPs, Features, Unusual • TAGS: .

So, I’m doing my best to avoid going out to my parents very cold, damp garage to finish fixing my mom’s car.  Of course, the internet is one of the best avoidance tools ever invented.

On a lark, I typed in ‘Flat Fender Babes’ into google just to see if anything came up.  While most of the links were garbage, one link lead me to a list of significant production automobiles, created by Angry Stan at AngryStan’s blog.  Naturally, one of the vehicles listed was the Willys MB.  What was interesting about the MB’s inclusion was Stan’s comment that the MB was “very loosely based on the Austin 7”.

Whoa .. news to me.  What you talkin’ ’bout Stan?

This GPW is beat up, but it does have some Ford script on it.

The jeep’s body is in good shape and since there has been a hard top on it for years there is vary little rust. No gone through rust in the floor. The engine looks like it may have been rebuilt, it runs good and strong, the carburetor will need to be rebuilt because it needs to be choked for it to run good.

Builds — Sand Drag Jeep from Santa Barbara

• CATEGORIES: Racing • TAGS: , .

I ran across this great looking Sand Drag Jeep called Impulsive Behavior.  From what I learned off the website, the owner’s name is Tim and he is a member of the Santa Barbara 4WD Jeep Club.

Impulsive Behavior “has a 468 cubic inch BBC generating just under 800Hp with almost 600 lb-ft of torque. This power plant will move the 2100 pound vehicle to 82 mph in 4.04 seconds on a 300 foot long race track.”

Fiberglass Flat Fender Bobcat Hood Puyallup, Wa **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts, Racing • TAGS: , , .

bobcat_hood_fiberglass_portlandI am pretty sure this sold

It looks in excellent shape.  I didn’t see any of these classic hoods at the swap meet (or they had already sold).  Having Don’s old card in the glass is a cool benefit.

“Vintage Aftermarket Jeep Hood for CJ2A CJ3A M38 MB & GPW. This “Bobcat hood” is a real find. The fiberglass has no cracks and the hinge works good. You can tell its vintage because there is a business card in the glass for (Don Prine’s) Prine’s Jeep Service and the phone # is JU 4-6648. So I would guess 60’s or before. The hump can give your air filter more room if you have a V-6 or V-8 under your hood. And it looks good..

1948? CJ-2A Winstead, Mn $2,995


1948_cj2a_winsteadA reader named Jim forwarded this interesting CJ-2A.  The body appears in very good shape.  It sports a column shift and a PTO.  It appears to have a CJ-3B windshield. With the 3 dash panels and the column shifting, I’d guess this (or part of it) is actually a mid 1946 rather than a 1948.
