1952 CJ-3A? Lake Forest, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5500.

This looks more like a M-38 to me, but I can’t tell conclusively.

1952 Jeep CJ3A. This jeep has a 1955 F head engine instead of the original flat head engine. I have lots of extra parts I bought at a military auction many years ago. I have a soft top for it. This Jeep has NO rust and ran great last time I went hunting in it which was 1994. it has been stored inside ever since. Even the interior is good. I put in a new gas tank with non corrosive liner. It needs a battery and most likely will need a carburetor rebuild from sitting so long and will have years of trouble free hunting or whatever. It’s not fast (max 50 mph) but it will climb a tree.”

1946 CJ-2A Auburn, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $24,950.

It looks nice enough, but I just don’t think the seller makes a strong argument for the rather high asking price.

“1946 Jeep CJ2A that has had a complete body-off restoration.  Many items have been chromed and a new set of chrome wheels and tires.  The engine is original and has been completely gone through. The Jeep hasn’t gone more that 50 miles since being restored. Custom seats have been added and many other accessories.”

1950_cj3a_butteUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3500

“I’m selling this CJ3a for $3500 firm. I recently put an original style L-Head back into it after the previous owner did a V6 conversion on it. This L-Head is a higher compression version of the original; a Kaiser Supersonic engine. It has excellent consistency of compression between the cylinders. This vehicle also has brand new (about 500 miles) BFG All-terrain 30×9.50-15s.
The vehicle just needs the ignition wired up to start and the exhaust is not installed, though I have all the pieces.”

Pictures: A handcrank heater and M37

• CATEGORIES: Features, News

If my addition is correct, readers have located 6 rare Stewart handcrank heaters in the US & UK.  They are rare enough that the antique Road Show people couldn’t get any information about them from their buyers (see the 2nd to last post on this page).

Dennis, who’s heater is featured here, decided to fire up his heater at night, creating this cool picture.  He also sent an unrelated artsy pic of an M37 he thought he’d share.  Thanks!

1965 Tuxedo Park CJ-5 Fremont, Ca $4500


1965_tuxedopark_cj5_fremontThe pics aren’t the greatest, but it sounds like this is in excellent shape!

“1965 Willy’s Tuxedo Park 20Th Anniversary CJ 5 These jeeps are very rare!!! 225 cu V-6. Holly 400 cfm 4 barrel carb on an Edelbrock manifold. Headers, Overdrive, Full Cage Roll Bar, 11 inch Brakes, Duel gas tanks, Front locking hubs,Tilt and Power Steering and an after market heater. Here are some pictures. I`m going to put it up on a lift and get some pics of frame and running gear for those of you that want more. It`s never had a break or crack in the frame. I even have the original key that came with the jeep when purchased new. It had a single shift transfer case that my dad changed the shifter handles on. You know how those old school folks are. This jeep was set up right. It has a long stroke motor with small primaries in the carburetor for good low end torque and good gas mileage and secondaries for good performance. Its the only 225 I’ve ever seen with a 4 barrel. Not to say they’re not out there. It has 39.000 original miles. With a little cleaning and a nice paint job it would look like new. It has a little dent in the hood and at the bottom of the door. When I say little I mean very little.This jeep was my fathers and he took very good care of it. He passed away 2 years ago and its been sitting outside. It was in the garage for the first 42 years of its life. Its going to be hard to see it go. I would like to see it go to someone who would take care and enjoy it like my dad did. I will send you more pictures if you want. Thanks for looking and hope you like what you see. Steve.   My Email is”

1948 CJ-2A Pontiac, Mi **SOLD**


1948_cj2a_pontiacUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $10,500.

I found this ad interesting because the seller says he got an appraisal of $12,500 from Southern Motors (a car seller?).  It appears to be restored, however the pics make some of the parts of the body look a little rough (it could be the pics). The drive train and transmission sound stock to me.

“1948 WILLYS Jeep, 406 CI Motor, 4 BBL, 194 Camelback Early Corvette Heads, 3 Speed Trans, 538 Axle, Completely restored inside and out. Engine and Transmission rebuilt less than 500 miles on rebuild. Lots of power. New LTX Ms Michlin 31 X 10.5 R 15 tires.”

The new eWillys?


I spent the day pondering a new design for ewillys.   One goal was to get more of a script for the ewillys brand that I could use to create t-shirts, etc with.  Also, I wanted to reorganize things a bit.  Finally, I want to more tightly incorporate the dynamic areas into the overall design (similar to what I have tested in the current design).  NOTE:  I haven’t filled in anything in the sidebar, but most of the side bar info on the current design would appear in the sidebar of the new design.  click on the pic to get the full effect.
