Thumbs Up for a Champaign Storm

• CATEGORIES: Features

We’ve stopped in Champaign for the night. Just as we entered the city, a storm arrived. By the time we found the statute of movie critic Roger Ebert, which sits outside the Virginia theater in Champaign, Illinois (now showing John Wayne in Red River), sheets of rain could be seen and gnarly clouds were everywhere. We saw lightening and heard the thunder that followed. Thankfully, there was no rain falling on us. All three of us thought it made for a great storm, worthy of three thumbs up!!

Bernd’s CJ-5 Is Still Working Hard

• CATEGORIES: Features

Bernd’s been busy with his CJ-5. Last we saw it, he was using it to set up a local train for a public event in Austria. Recently, he needed to transport a diesel engine to a repair shop. These ordinary, utilitarian-type tasks is exactly how we often used Dad’s jeep.

1965 CJ-5 Tux Park IV “Surrey” Lake Murray, SC $38,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features • TAGS: .

Ted shared this unusual blend of a Surrey and a Tux Park. It sure looks nice. The seller doesn’t mention that the Surrey upgrades are incorrect for this model, but the seller is correct that if you want something unique to bring to a jeep event, this qualifies.

“1965 Jeep CJ-5A Tuxedo Park Mark IV – An “upscale” Jeep was named after the upscale Tuxedo Park in New York, which was the birthplace of the tuxedo. Elvis drove a similar Jeep in the 1965 movie “Tickle Me” which also starred Julie Adams. Tuxedo Park Jeeps were also driven in President Lyndon Johnson’s inaugural parade in January, 1965.

This special edition Jeep came standard with chrome bumpers, wheel covers, column shift, fold-down rear license plate, fold-down windshield, and a little more highway-friendly rear gear. Standard running gear is a 4-cylinder engine and 3-Speed manual transmission. Optional equipment on this one includes the surrey interior & top, 4-Wheel-drive, and “full” passenger seat. It has been retrofitted with seat belts for safety. Just like Elvis’ Tuxedo Park, this one is finished in Marlin Blue. Continue reading

“1946 Willys Jeep CJ-2A This is a really a great little Willys Jeep as this is the year the Willys became available to the general public after the war. This is truly a great little restoration with everything from a new carburetor to new exhaust. Has approximately 77K original miles and runs good. Starts up fairly easily and runs strong. Original Flathead 4 cylinder Engine. Has new carburetor, oil filter, fan, newer starter, belts, exhaust, etc. and I’d recommend a new wire harness. Newer seats, and a new cover for it. This jeep shows like a 1946 Jeep Willys with some scratches on the paint and a little rust on the wheels so you know. It has a Clean Title with two VIN numbers listed at 72298@72705. It’s a great little jeep and just one that I’m not going to move and am downsizing.”

“Up for sale is a totally restored 1950 Jeep Willys CJ3A. Stand out from the Wrangler crowd with this Willys. You will get more attention with this old girl than you would expect. This is a total off frame restoration. Everything has been gone through, and I mean everything. There is nothing that needs to be done to this beauty. The restoration brought her back to her original glory including new wiring and 6V electrical system. Starts on the first crank and runs like a brand new sewing machine. They don’t make them like this anymore.

The pictures tell the story! Perfect for cruising around town, to the beach, dinner, shopping, or anywhere where you are seeking fun getting there. I have $16,000+ invested in this restoration and over 1000 hours in labor that isn’t included in that number. It’s really hard to find these in this good of condition. I have a new Jeep project I’m working on and need the space. I hate to see this one go! Clean Florida title in hand.”

No Updates Sunday

Another long day on Saturday (fortunately, we spent lots of it talking and very little of it driving), so no updates on Sunday. Rusty has a new home. After a short visit with Merlin Hansen to see his new place, we are heading home. We should make it to Champaign, IL, by Sunday evening, where we plan to take a photo with Roger Ebert.

This April 22, 2013 photo provided by Thompson-McClellan shows a bronze statue of Pulitzer Prize winning film critic Roger Ebert giving his famous 'thumbs up" sign in Champaign, Ill. The statue will be unveiled Thursday, April 24, 2014, outside the Virginia Theatre in Champaign where Ebert held his annual film festival. Ebert died in April 2013.
