1978 Prototype Jeep Jr. Reynoldsburg, Oh

• CATEGORIES: toys

Here’s a very unusual Go-Kart/Toy/Lawn mower (strange combo) on Ebay for $9,995 that was spotted by a reader.  I did a quick search to see if I could find the museum that houses the other one of these prototypes, but couldn’t find it.  I have no idea what this is worth or whether this is really what the seller says it is.

“For sale is a unique Jeep Jr. built by wheel horse for the Jeep company in 1978. Only three were ever made. One is on display in a museum, one is destroyed, and one is sitting in my garage. The Jeep Jr. runs and drives and has been well maintained over the past thirty years. This Jeep is truly a collectors item. This jeep jr was produced as a prototype in 1978 for American motors and is an actual lawn mower. The jeep goes pretty fast up to 25 mph, and even faster if set up right. Perfect for car collector. Can be driven on street or grass….”

1964 CJ-3B Denver, Co $1500 OD included

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B

Here’s what looks like a very good price on a CJ-3B that includes an Overdrive.

“This is my old Jeep CJ3B. I’m the second owner, and I purchased it in 1998 or so.
Its factory PTO, winch, and overdrive. The winch has a broken foot which I was going to repair, but I figured I’d let the buyer do it (I can still do it if ya want!)
The jeep has a straight 6 conversion engine from the 70s. Its a 232. It runs good, but I have no idea what the mileage is on it. Its factory tranny (3 speed) and transfer case (twin stick). Lots of tread left on the tires, but they are several years old. BFgoodrich 33×9.50×15 on chrome rims. The jeep has a Dana 44 rear and a dana 25 or 27 front (closed knuckle). 5.38 gears. I’ve got another d44 for the jeep that has a warn full floater conversion on it and a lock-right in it. It works great….. The jeep is $1500 obo. ”

1950 CJ-3A Oklahoma City, Ok $2800

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

1950_cj3a_oklahomacityHere’s a CJ-3A that still has the 6 volt system.  This might be a good find if you want to restore a CJ-3A without too much work.

“This is a very nice original jeep. (very rare). Most have been modified heavily. The only thing modified are seat belts, roll bar, lockout front hubs, and of course wheels and tires. The original engine, transmission and transfer case are still under the hood! It is still 6 volt with a new battery. I had the clutch replaced a few months ago and the mechanic didn’t do it right so I haven’t driven it since then. I knew I should have done it myself!!! It wasn’t aligned properly so it has a vibration. I haven’t had the time to fix it myself and I don’t trust anyone to do it for me. It needs a new accelerator pedal linkage and he’s ready for all of the fun you can handle … Anyway thanks for shopping by and you can call or text me at my cell# 214-616-9911 (yes I do live in OKC, just haven’t changed my cell phone). I just don’t have the time to keep Willy up and would like to see him get a new good home.”

Here’s an interesting project in which a good chunk of money has already been invested.  I don’t know if the seller will get his money our or not.  The seller mentions this is a rare wagon model.  I’m unsure whether this is true or not.

“Start off with a little history of this rare Jeep Willy’s Panel Wagon. This is a windowless panel wagon with rear delivery doors (sometimes called ambulance doors) that was a special order forest service vechiles. Some of the rarest vehicles to come by now a days. It was once used for a top fuel car in Seattle some years ago About the only thing that’s fit’s the original jeep is the body.The rest is a ground up restoration converting it back to a 4 x 4 with a ton of labor and cash put into it.”

It runs.  It even stops now.

“I bought this Jeep twenty years ago and rebuilt the engine. Since then I have only used it to plow snow in the driveway. I recently replaced the brake wheel cylinders and two brake lines to get the brakes to work. I used it 20 years without brakes; I never went fast enough that I couldn’t stop by lowering the snow blade. The lights don’t work; I never needed them. I never had it registered on the road. There is still a license plate on it from 1976. I imagine that was the last time it was registered”

My Build — Engine and Charging System Connections

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

UPDATE 2: I’ve made a major adjustment to my basic wiring schematic.  This fixed my alternator issues and got my volt meter working correctly.

Major Changes:

  1. I corrected how I wired my Ford Starter Relay (aka Remote Starter Solenoid).  Basically, when the starter button is pushed, it ‘closes’ the connection in the Relay, which ignites the left side of the relay, in turn causing the starter to start the engine.
  2. While my schematic was actually correct, I had mis-wired my Delco 10si alternator because the wiring that came with my wiring harness caused me to mix up the sensing wiring and the field wire.  In my case, the sensing wiring is on the left and wired to the volt meter and the field wire plugs into the right and wired to the battery.
  3. I hadn’t added a power wire to the volt meter side.  I made sure the power wire was only powered up if the power switch was on, to reduce the chances of the batter getting drained.

My Build: The Engine’s Running

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit

Below is a video that documents the third start of the engine. It’s pretty brief, but I didn’t want to do much more than idle it at that time.

The main issue with getting the engine to work was that I simply had the distributor wires  in the wrong places .. i was off by 180 degrees.  Once I fixed that, it started immediately!  Frankly, I was surprised when it started.  I only swapped the wiring because I saw someone else on the web with a HEI distributor with the wires opposite of what I had done.  Since I was out of ideas, I figured swapping wouldn’t hurt anything and, VIOLA .. it started instantly!

Once I had it started, I had to go back through and fix some of the mistakes in the wiring I had made, including discovering and fixing a key wire that ran underneath the jeep — that was a pain!

Now, most everything works.  One key issue is that the alternator isn’t working.  But, I think I should have that problem solved by tomorrow.

I am guessing the year of this jeep based on the serial number and the CJ-2A website production serial numbers.  This jeep includes a Monroe Lift.

“Nice CJ2A Willys Agri-jeep with a Monroe lift. starts and runs good. Monroe lift has been off of the jeep since the mid 1970s. The previous owner used it to run a bush-hog cut fields. Hydraulic hose are dryrotted and needs replaced. Tires and spare in good condition. comes with air cleaner, hydraulic pump (missing rubber bushing), resivor and control valve, PTO belt drive, PTO V belt pully. The body has rust and is not straight at all. Paint less that fair. leaks oil. It needs restored but i don’t have the time to dedicate to this project.”
