1942 GPW Sacramento Make Offer


My question is, are the paint spots highlighting bullet holes?  Looks like there has been some changes in the rear related to the suspension (frame over axle perhaps).

Montana Bound for a week


Updates will be intermitent for about a week as I'm heading up to Great Falls, Montana, for a commemoration of the new interpretive information at Giant Springs State Park. Apparently, my great great grandfather, Anton Eilers, is considered the father of industry in Great Falls (due to the construction of a smelter).  The park department sent me an invitation to attend the event as the representative for the Eilers clan.  Since I love a good road trip and have never been to Great Falls, how could I resist?

Even though the picture isn't great, it's easy to tell this CJ-3B is likely in great shape. 

"There no room to list all that this has on it.  You really should see it to beleive what it has.  I can send photo to the person who has placed a bid.  I also have a matching off road cargo trailer that looks great with the 3B.  The motor is a 350ci Chevy with only 1000 miles on it.  Lots and lots of chrome, just to much to list here.

1946 CJ-2A New York eBay


This CJ-2A appears well maintained with a very nice, newer Auger.  The jeep also sports the rare borg warner overdrive that mounts behind the transfercase output shaft.  I doubt any buyer will offer the $9000 starting bid request. Post Hole Digger. Roper?

“I purchased this Willys two years ago and it was what you might call a parade vehicle. Very nice to look at with the wood trim and rust free body. It had been converted to a 12 volt electrical system.”

1954 CJ-3B Westfall, Or eBay


UPDATE:  This CJ-3B is back on ebay (last time was mid may).  Starting bid is now $2200.

The beginning bid price is $2500, which is a bit high for a non running jeep. The rims and tires look new and in good shape.  Westfall Oregon is in the middle of eastern Oregon, a ways off either highway 20 or 26.

"For sale is a 1954 Willys CJ-3B, "High Hood". This is the jeep Willys replaced the CJ-3A with, by adding the new overhead engine. Being a taller engine, it needed more room, so, Willys raised the hood. I bought this Willys from a man who was driving it back and forth to work. He had started to restore the jeep, (pulled the radiator, front clip, started some body work…) then he ran out of time, and sold it to me. It is not running at this time….."

My Build — More Engine fun …

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit, News

UPDATE June 21:   My second trip for bearings to the NAPA store was a failure.  They shipped me bearings that were wrong AGAIN!  I got my money back and went online to find bearings.  That was a failure as well as I couldn't get anything to ship sooner than July 7.  Desperate to do the build while the kids are here, I turned to autozone.  Amazingly, not only did they have the bearings in the store and in stock, but they were only $26 (for the same Clevite77 bearings NAPA was charging me $42).  Even better, I had earned $10 on my Autozone store card and  so the final cost for the bearings was only $17. —–

June 20th .. I was all ready to assemble the engine when I discovered the Main bearings didn't fit correctly.  After examining them more carefully, I discovered they didn't work at all.  The 'tang' was in the wrong location as was the oil hole.  

This morning, I took the bearings back to the NAPA store.  After a discovery process of about 20 minutes we finally concluded I got the correct bearing box, but the box had tractor bearings rather than buick v-6 bearings.  So, my new bearings should be here tomorrow morning.  Because of this, the engine build has been delayed until monday (when the kids are back).

1955 CJ-5 Seattle $14,000


Are you kidding me?  $14,000 for a cj5 that needs suspension work?  Add to that it's a pink jeep with "Angel's Toy" on the back and you're looking at a jeep that has a pretty small buyer demographic.  

"1955 Willys CJ5 Jeep. It has a 327 corvette motor, 4 speed tranny twin stick transfer case, has tilt wheel, spring over sitting on 42in super swampers. It was painted aproximately 10 years ago,but has been garaged until two months ago, it's never seen mud, but would be a fun toy to have. It has a stainless steel custom dash."

1963 DJ-3A Surrey — Saint Petersburg, Florida eBay


On first glance this looks almost brand new.  But, on a closer look I realized someone couldn’t resist modifying it by changing the windshield.  At first, I thought the windshield was raised and attached to an added bracket; however, after looking at more pictures,  I’d say someone tried to make a CJ-3B windshield fit on it. On such a rare and good looking jeep, I can only wonder why??

“This ultra rare 5000-mile documented original 1963 Willys spent the majority of it`s life on a golf course in Florida. It is believed to be one of the few Surrey Gala models. At some point in it’s life it has had a color change and top upgrade. For the last 15 years it has been part of a private collection. It has never been offered for sale before. It is in excellent mechanical condition and presents beautifully.”

Happy Father’s Day


I hope all the fathers enjoyed a happy father's day!  

I took the day off yesterday from ewillys, enjoying an 8 hour drive with my children from Seattle back to Boise.  My own father was in the hospital for a couple days after what appeared to be small stroke, though the doctors could not find anything.  By yesterday he was back to his normal self and back home from the hospital.  I teased him that if he thought we were to noisy, he could have asked us to quiet down rather than checking himself into the hospital.

On Saturday I took my kids to the museum of flight in downtown Seattle.  I wanted to use the experience as a springboard for determining an approach for a jeep museum.  While the museum of flight is ostensibly about planes, it is really about people's stories (in the beginning, in war, in space, etc) and our experience as a people and the impact of planes in that experience. Their approach to planes mirrors my desire for a similar approach to telling the stories of the people who owned, used, and named their jeeps. 

The museum of flight also offers bi-plane flights and other 'old time' experiences, which is similar to what I wanted to capture as well with people being able to drive an early jeep (such as an early bantam built to spec).  A number of people have said I couldn't get the insurance I would need to offer these types of rides, but if their's insurance for giving bi-plane rides than their must be insurance for a jeep ride.

1945 MB Palermo, Ca $18000


The seller of this jeep wants $18000, though the jeep is not completed yet.  Whether you agree with the price, you'll probably enjoy looking through the 40+pics of the jeep and its various parts.

"This is a 1945 MB, WWII military jeep, that has been meticulously restored over the last 15 years. It is 85-90% finished, with boxes and boxes of parts, and everything needed to complete it. The parts used have been predominately NOS (New-Old-Stock: vintage parts still in the boxes), as when the project was begun there was still a supply of original vintage parts, and if a person was patient and willing to pay – could seek them out. This jeep is solid, and great care was even used to preserve all of the original spot welds, which as this is a military vehicle built for combat – it has plenty, and wears them proudly!" or skip straight to the pics

1946 CJ-2A Bountiful, Ut $3200 obo


This looks to be a nice baby blue CJ-2A.  Oddly, the lower part of the top slopes downward as it runs from the driver's door to the back of the jeep.  Maybe the top connectors slope down on the body, but that would be odd I would think.

"1946 Willys Jeep, CJ2A, with a 1969 V6. HEI ignition and oversized Commando brakes. New battery and extra axles included. Spare engine also included, disassembled but all machine work done.

1952 M-38 San Diego, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

This seller has plenty to say about this jeep.  The seller states “Value with basic OD paint and canvas for the top and seats and some basic parts ($2000 invested). —$6000 – $8000 on ebay.”  This may be true, but it underestimates the amount of work necessary.  That said, it sounds like there is a good deal of original m38 here.

“Here it is: 1952 Willys M38 (not M38A1) All original data plates intact – The Good: Original Motor 4cyl, flathead Go Devil, No modifications to the frame – body – running gear or anything, Had 95% of the stock trinkets – ie: blackout lights etc., Still set up as a 24V system, Never painted other than the yellow over OD green, Body is 95% sound ( I removed most of the paint to verify this)…”
