2008 PNW4DA Racing

• CATEGORIES: Features, Racing, videos • TAGS: , .

I was searching to see if anyone posted videos from the PNW4WDA 2009 Convention, but haven’t seen any yet.  I did find this nicely organized collection of racing images from 2008 that I hadn’t seen.  So, I thought I’d share them.  Note the audio has been disabled.  I have to wonder exactly how they track down audio like that given the millions of videos uploaded vs. the relatively low number of hits on this video.

Playing with different technologies


As you probably noticed, I’ve been testing out some different technologies, like the javascript slider on the front page.   Unfortunately, the menus don’t roll over it, so that’s not going to work.  I’ll be mucking with this stuff the next few days, so bear with me.

I’ve also noticed that there’s a number of issues with IE-6 with this design (drop down menu problems and sidebar issues for starters), so I may do a total redesign over labor day weekend.

It’s true that I could use a development site, but what fun would that be.

Diamond Plating Question

• CATEGORIES: Features, Parts

Several of our finest in Blue from Arizona read ewillys daily.  One of the readers asked about diamond plating for old flatties.  I can’t say I was much help, but maybe some of you have a suggestion?

Here is what I wrote:

It appears Warrior Products ( is the only company making them still (that I can find).  Most of the links below are the same product sold at different prices.

Here’s some options for side plates: $115 (for cj3a …  cj3b not mentioned)
BEST PRICE:|9288;folder|5701

Here are corner options for corner plates:|9269;folder|5709

Mail Jeep WW II Replica McDonough, Ga **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

“The “outside photos” shown are before the stenciling was done. Also, most of the undercarriage has been painted OD green to match the rest of the vehicle. I have for sale a 1974 RIGHT HAND DRIVE Jeep DJ5C which has been chopped and transformed into a WWII replica. It is probably 75% complete. The wiring harness has been ripped out and needs replaced. It was running INCREDIBLY strong just three months ago when the wiring was removed….”

1963 CJ-3B Berkshire County, Ma **SOLD**

Ed sent me the link to his ebay listing and I’m glad he did.  “Woodchuck” is a rare beauty!

“Purchased by Dorothy Owens for her summer camp in Wardsboro, Vermont on June 26, 1963 from Willys Jeep dealer E.J. Roberts & Son, Inc. of Jacksonville, Vermont (see sale receipt image below), this historic 1963 CJ3B is as close to true showroom original stock condition as likely almost any vintage Jeep existing. “Woodchuck”, as the 3B is now affectionately known, has been extensively documented, photographed and published (more on that below). Woodchuck, with only 9400 miles (continuously garaged since new and never driven in winter), is in its original Treebark Brown Poly paint (paint code 231) and original green upholstery (trim code 208) on the seats and tailgate chains.”

Builds: Dan updates us on his Grandfather’s Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features

This is a continuing series on Dan’s efforts to rebuild his Grandfather’s jeep. Here’s the previous post. [Editor’s note – that looks like a steal at $100.  Running and complete!]

Dan writes, “Sometime in the 1960’s my grandfather’s friend purchased a new Jeep and immediately swapped out the little four banger for a V8. My grandfather bought the new (at the time) 134 F head from his friend and installed it in his own 1955 CJ5 replacing the tired original 134. Over the years this second engine was rebuilt three or four times.

V6-2At one point in time my grandfather had a V6 of some kind sitting in the garage that was supposed to go into the Jeep. Unfortunately when he made the move from Colorado to Washington State, the V6 was left behind.

Today I just came home with an engine for the old CJ5. It’s a Kaiser odd-fire Dauntless V6. I found it behind a barn in a Jeepster C101 sporting a Volkswagen Bug body. (It was the ugliest “Jeep” I have ever seen). But the engine was still in tact and was running when parked. I made the guy an offer for $100. He pulled the engine and had it sitting on a pallet for me the next week. I took home everything from the radiator to the bell housing. He wanted the transmission which is fine with me. Someone had painted the valve covers red but you can see the original paint underneath. There was a power steering pump scabbed on which I will remove since I have a manual Saginaw box. It will be nice to breath the life into the CJ5 that my grandfather had wanted.

V6 Valve-Cover-StampingOriginally, I had responded to a Craigslist add for a set of fenders. As it turned out I came home with a set of front fenders, a nice Koenig steel hard top model 550, and a Dauntless V6. He still has a Koenig PTO winch that I’m drooling over, but they don’t fit too well next to a Saginaw box.

I have attached a few pictures of the V6. In one of them you can catch a glimpse of the old CJ5 in the garage.
