1946 CJ-2A Albany, NY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1800.

Sounds like it needs a little work.  Strangely, no step-side drain holes or a gas inlet hole.  I’m not sure whether the back is solid or not.

“46 Jeep CJ2A with some other parts, like the windshield is 53.- Military colors, this is a great farm jeep or offroad project. Runs great, great rubber. Floor pan has some rot. Frame and all other parts and metal are in good shape. Front seats in good shape. 12volt conversion done and makes it street legal. We used it for the summer house, comes with full doors and top.”

1949 CJ-3A Stratford, WI $750

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

This jeep has a 30 front and 44 rear with posi and 4:10 gears.  This is a great price.  Where were these jeeps when I was looking a year and a half ago!  The fenders have been lengthened, which explains the odd hood.  I wonder if this is a later model frame.

“1949 Jeep Willys 4×4 CJ-2A flat fender. Body and frame in good-excellent shape with very minimal rust for the year. Roll bar installed with a fold down windshield and newer black jeep cj-7 seats. NO rear seat. Front axle is a Dana 30 with drum brakes with a Dana 44 rear. The rear axle has a positrac unit installed (not welded or Lincoln locked), 4.10 gears front and rear. The brakes for being drums work surprisingly well. The engine is an international scout v8 345 with a holley 2 barrel carb mated to a 3 speed manual transmission and a dana 20 twin stick tcase.”

1947 CJ-2A Cape Coral, Fl $1900

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE:  This one is still for sale. It’s a steal, unless the owner is leaving something critical out. It’s been for sale for 6 months.

One look at the parts list and you’ll see a lot of similarities to my build.  While the ‘needs TLC’ always raises an eyebrow, if the updated parts were installed well and the body is in good condition, then I think this price is rocking.

Reader Builds — More on Paul’s 1944 MB

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features

Paul has supplied us with some additional pics and an explanation of the mounting system.  You can view the full article about Paul’s jeep here.

“The first pic with the hood open shows the two Dzus (brand name) (learn how to pronounce Dzus) fasteners which help hold the hood down when inserted into the brackets shown in the 2nd pic.  The brackets are just above the yellow ignition coil and next to the master cylinder.  I also use another fastener (for a total of 4 to hold the hood) on the back side of the flat fenders.  The last image shows another view of the ½” pipe as it is bolted to the top side of the flat fenders. ”

Steel Side Guards for flatties Spokane, Wa $35

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts

I don’t know whether these are made anymore (anyone know)?  What I do know is that this is the first set I’ve seen for sale in two years of watching craigslist.  In addition, I haven’t seen a design quite like that. Normally, the steel is taller and goes up farther on the body.

“Here is a pair of vintage side rocker panel guards for a flatfender Jeep. They are steel and have some pittting from age but are straight! Hide that nasty rust with these vintage goodies!

Someone’s got the wrong year on this CJ-3B.  Maybe it is really 1964?  It’s either got a fiberglass body or some work has been done on the steps.

1950 CJ-3A Sarasota, Fl eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

This is a beautiful CJ-3A.

“This vehicle was purchased new by a California doctor who kept it on his ranch most of it’s life. I bought it in 2003. I believe the +/-56,000 is probably accurate.The only thing that is off of original is the seat belts and roll bar which I added. It has been repainted but is original color. The seats have been rebuilt and the top was replaced. Recently(early this year) I installed all new brake drums, shoes and cylinders, also new (less than 50 miles) Michelin tires.”

My Build — Playing With the Roll Cage Design

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

I thought I’d reassemble my mockup roll cage to see how everything is coming together.  After making a few small changes, I’ve decided the front hoop will need to go up about an 1″ or so and the back hoop will need to drop about 2″, which should provide a more balanced look to the cage and allow a top to fit more easily.

Attaching The Front of the Roll Cage

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

Last week, Siva asked about my strategy for attaching the roll cage to the front area of the jeep. So, I put my mockup cage back into the jeep to demonstrate this.  The two pics below show the PVC tube landing squarely on the 1/4″ thick plate of steel.  There will be four bolts that go through the plate connected to the cage to a plate underneath the body connected to the frame (see drawing at the bottom).  This sandwiches the body between the roll cage plate and the frame plate, keeping everything together.  There will also be one or two triangle plates from the tube to the plate (as demonstrated by the piece show in the pic).  This will help provide some additional lateral strength.

1946 CJ-2A (ex race jeep) Wallowa, OR **SOLD**

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

UPDATE:  Since I was heading to Seattle, I decided to stop by and check out this old racer (Also, it was a great excuse to head east out of La Grande, Oregon; Great drive!).

This is a total old school racing jeep.  The builder took a stock jeep, threw on some desert dogs, upgraded the engine with a buick v6 (leaving the stock exhaust manifolds), threw in a roll cage, vented the carb into the cowl, and that’s about it.  The builder’s son felt that there was a dana 44 in the rear that had posi, and maybe the front too, but he didn’t know for sure. Unfortunately, the weeds kept me from being able to get a jack under the jeep to test whether it had posi or not.

Is that a split windshield?  Something’s running down the middle of the windshield.  If you’ve got a large trailer, I think this would be a deal that’s worth looking into.

Jeep Thrills visits the Jawadhu Hills

• CATEGORIES: Features, News

Siva has updated his blog with a recent trip to the Jawadhu Hills by a few members of the Jeep Thrills jeep club.  One of the more interesting differences between jeeping in the U.S. and jeeping in India may be summed up by Siva,  “Jawadhu hills has around 270 mountain villages, people in these villages needs to walk for 4kms to 20kms to reach the main road.”  So, the terrain may be remote, yet you may still find yourself passing the occasional pedestrian or stopping for lunch at a local village after traveling over difficult terrain.  Thanks for the update Siva!

I tried to locate the Jawadhu Hills, but instead found the Javadhu Hills near Vellore that lie between two rivers, Ponnaiyar and Palar.  Is that the correct location?  Vandavasi, where you had breakfast, is near there.
