“Have decided to sell my 1948 Willys CJ2a which I’ve owned for the past 6 years or so and have loved. I’ve started a Bronco project and don’t get to drive this one as much as I used to.

This Jeep looks a bit rough but runs BEAUTIFULLY including four wheel drive- would be a good candidate for a cosmetic restoration or just to drive around as-is like I’ve been doing.

Many new parts and upgrades since I’ve owned it including:
-Five new tires and tubes
-New rebuilt Carter carburetor
-New radiator
-New plugs and wires
-Complete rewiring with new wiring harness
-New gas tank
-Aftermarket turn signals for safer road use
-New brake system
-New gauges

This Jeep comes with an aftermarket Koenig metal hardtop from the 1950s- see pics. Also comes with a spare transmission/transfer case I bought as a backup but never needed.”

1959 CJ-6 Parts Bonney Lake, WA $1500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6

UPDATE: Price dropped to $1500.

(10/01/2019) This is a parts jeep that’s been disassembled. There’s no fake battery box lid, so I suspect the body is later than 1959.

“1959 Willy’s Jeep CJ6
This is a rare, long wheel base CJ. Similar to the CJ5, except for being nearly 20” longer! It’s a project, but it’s mostly there! I have everything except the axles, engine, transmission, or seats. I have the tub, fenders, hood grille, tailgate, windshield, softtop, frame, and title. Too many other projects, sadly, this one must go.”

1947 Win a Jeep Station Wagon Ads

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Willys Wagons

UPDATE: This ad originally appeared in 2013, but recently I was able to find all three ads.

In 1947, some Queen Anne Jingle Bar Wrappers included the opportunity to complete a jingle to win all kinds of contest prizes. It appears there were at least three different contests and each included a chance to win a Station Wagon.

1. This ad is on eBay, but the date is not listed. The Jingle goes:
JIMMY GOT A JINGLE BAR
HE LOVED EACH LUSCIOUS BITE
SAND HE, “QUEEN ANNE’S JINGLE BAR
___________________________” (fill in the final line)

1947-queen-anne-jingle-bar-contest-ad

2. This Ad was on eBay with the following contest circa September 1947:
MARY BOUGHT A JINGLE BAR,
SHE THOUGHT IT REALLY NEAT.
NOW SHE GETS ONE EVERY DAY,
___________________________ (fill in the final line)

1947-09-queen-anne-jingle-bar-contest-ad

3. This ad appeared in the November 30, 1947, issue of the Sunday Star. This Jingle was different:
FOLKS HAVE FOUND A JINGLE BAR
TASTES JUST AS GOOD AS PIE!
MILK CHOCOLATE, NUTS AND CARAMEL

“This is an original press photo. Somewhere in England — A heavy maintenance company of U.S. Army Ordnance obviously had America’s ability for automotive production in mind when it decided to set up a Jeep assembly line at a depot in England. On a trial order from Army Ordnance Chiefs for the assembling of 2,000 Jeeps they established something of a record within a fortnight — with Jeeps rolling off the assembly line at the rate of one every 3 minutes. Following pictures show how it’s done. After wheels are unstrapped from the interior of the Jeep, they are brought to this point for inflation of the tires.Photo measures 9 x 7.25inches. Photo is dated 10-28-1943.”
