Dino Danieli’s ww2jeep’s website


Back in 2002, or thereabouts, Dino launched a website he calls the GPW – MB – CJ 2A/3A/3B – MC/M38  Visual Reference site.”  It’s got some really useful visual information, including a dataplate page that I used tonight while reviewing a jeep.  Unfortunately, it appears to have been last updated in December of 2006.

One of the coolest images I came across was developed by Darryl of Darryl’s Garage (see below).  Darryl appears to love restoring old vehicles.  He also documents those restorations wells.  Two restorations he has done include a 1943 GPW and a 1943 Bantam Trailer (both of which I’ll highlight tomorrow).  These are excellent overviews.

So, the image that Darryl created is a beautifully done chart that follows the changes, on a monthly basis, to the GPW and MB bodies.  Nice work Darryl!   You can see what he did below (and you can find it on Dino’s site here):

The Wife Hates IT Post Falls, ID **SOLD**



UPDATE: **SOLD ** Was $6000

It’s unusual …. but he loves it.

“Custom made buggy that will go anywhere. I have used it in Moab rocks, AZ desert rocks, Colorado mountains, CA sand dunes, etc. 370hp 360ci mopar engine professionally built … My wife hates this thing, I will hate to see it go. I am asking 6k, but am somewhat negotiable. I would consider some trades such as an equivalent value 4×4 quad or a rhino, ranger, or prowler. I would consider a clean jeep as well. I have this machine at a storage yard in Post Falls. If I have time I hope to take it to Moses Lake this weekend to check out the dunes that are supposedly over there. They don’t sound like much compared to what this beast has seen before.”

Older Warn Winch Durango, Co $250


warn_winch_durangoThis is one of the least expensive winches I’ve come across through Craigslist. It looks like dad’s old winch, which never failed us in 15 years of use.

“Old school, would be awesome for restoration on vintage 4×4, this is the winch that later became the famous warn upright 8274. It worked great when removed from 1964 Jeep CJ5 a year ago. $250 or will consider trade for f*re arms, canoe, aluminum boat willys jeep parts etc. ”

1981/71 VW Jeep Dublin, NC **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: VEEP (VW Jeep), Scamp, Others

1981_veep_dublinUPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

This is the nicest ‘VEEP’ I’ve seen.  The seller is incorrect about the body, as that’s obviously a M-38 body.  As of this post the high bid is $3319.

“Up for auction is an extremely rare and fun Kit 2 wheel drive Veep.  I absolutely love this little Jeep.  It was built in 1981 using a 1971 Volkswagen Beetle donor car.  The body is an all steel 1948 Willys CJ-2A.  It was meticulously & professionally built by an aerospace engineer according to the information I have.  The kit was designed by the Scamp corporation.  You can tell this was done right in every way.  Most people do not realize that it’s not an actualy Willys….”

Ya win some and ya lose some …


At the 4wd swap meet  in March, my only purchase was a bottom cover for my TH-350 housing.  I was assured it would fit a TH-350.  I figured, for $10, it was worth a try.

I got it home, cleaned it up, even painting it.  It looked like it should fit.  But alas, no matter how many ways I tried to make it work, the holes didn’t line up.  That will teach me to try something new (as in trying an automatic).  So, my search continues ….. here’s a picture, for what it’s worth 🙂

1953_m38a1_saltonseaYeah, it’s been chopped a bit in the rear end, but it looks like there’s some reasonable parts there (nice full cage, tires and rims).  I’m sure it would be a fun little runabout vehicle.

1950 CJ-3A Stearns, Ky $1400


1950_cj3a_stearnsDespite what the seller writes, it looks like there’s more than a little rust on this body.  But, if the rust isn’t too bad, then this might be a decent price.

“I am selling a 1950 Willys CJ3 for my father. He bought it and did a little work to it but doesnt have the time to restore it(or sell it). It has a clear KY title. The jeep is located in Stearns, Ky, 42647.    The Good: runs, drives, brakes work(enough anyway), new alternator, new battery, replaced radiator, new exhaust from the manifold back, tow bar, extra carburator, very little rust(for a 59 year old jeep). The Bad: carburator floods sometimes when you first start it(once its going it goes though), brakes need work(but they will stop you). The Ugly: windshield cracked, paint very rough, hood patched(somebody had a scoop on it), mismatched seats. I am asking $1400.00 O.B.O. “

Harry’s Great American Adventure


Jim forwarded me this great story of Harry, who is from Denmark.  Thanks for sharing Jim and Best of Luck Harry!  Here’s Jim’s remarks:

“I sold this 51 M38/CJ3A a few months ago on eBay to a very animated guy in Denmark named Harry. He showed up here in Durango a week ago to pick it up, saying he wanted to drive it to Dallas Texas (1000 miles!) and see a little of the country side. He turned out to be a really great guy; So, I invited him to stay here at the house and prep the jeep for the trip. We rode Harleys on a 300 mile loop through the Colorado mountains, ate, drank, laughed, learned some German and Danish, drank his home made honey wine, smoked a huge brisket for 16 hours, and drank rum around the bonfire at night swapping stories. After a couple days of lube, oil changes, collecting spare parts, tuning, etc,  he jumped in last Friday and drove a nearly 60 year old, un-restored, stock, Willys jeep at 45 mph all the way to Dallas Texas in 3 days. I talked to him this morning. He said it ran great, the only failures being a coil and a starter solenoid.  That’s pretty minor considering what could have gone wrong. He said he got terribly bored crossing the New Mexico desert, so he yelled at cows in Danish as he passed just for entertainment. Harry my new friend, I salute you, you are nuts, you are crazy, you are my kind of people, my hat is off to you!”
