Zombies invade Austin, Tx … sort of

• CATEGORIES: News

zombiesOk, so this has nothing to do with jeeps and it wasn’t really zombies, but I thought it was funny, soooo ….. hackers had their way this morning with commuters in Austin, Texas.  An electronic road sign that normally reads “Construction Area Ahead” was updated by some hackers to read “ZOMBIES IN AREA!  RUN”.

While drivers interviewed were amused, a City of Austin Spokesman was less amused, saying “Even though this may seem amusing to a lot of people, this is really serious, and it is a crime and you can be indicted for it, and we want to make sure our traffic on the roadways stays safe.”

I suspect this won’t be the last electronic road sign we see hacked.  Read more here ….

1966 CJ-5 Clark County, Wa $2000

• CATEGORIES: CJ5

1966_cj5_clarkctyA reader asked me to look at a CJ-5 he was interested in purchasing. So, I spent a little time reviewing the sale of CJ-5s and was surprised to see how many are for sale and how many great deals are out there.  At the beginning of 2007 I spent January and February looking for good prices on CJ-5s, so I got a pretty good idea of the market then;  It’s just amazing the change 2 years later.  Here’s a good example.

“Red CJ5 4X4 Jeep. Good condition. Full roll cage. Tilt steering wheel. Chevy sm. block. 4-sp. stick. 2″ lift with 31″ tires. After market wheels. Body is in Great shape. Call for more info. Possible trade for ??? but NO FORDS. I’m a chevy guy. OR Toyota 4 runner. Call Todd at 503-740-7396 or 360-835-5467”

I’m pretty sure this is parts jeep given the poor condition of the body.

New fuel tank. Does not run and no title. All major components seem to be there. With a little work should run. Email for photos or questions. Thx – Ben”

This seller has installed a variety of new parts on this CJ-3B (and I think lists every single one in the ad).  Looks like the body’s in decent shape.  I’m thinking the seller was attempting to restore it, but now needs to sell it.

1947 CJ-2A Skiatook, Ok $10,600 **Sold**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

1948_cj2a_skiatookWhile updating the ebay results page, I ran across the following jeep.  It’s a CJ-2A made up to look like a MB/GPW.  On ebay, it sold for a winning bid of $10,600.  I’m a bit shocked it sold for that much.

“1948 WILLYS CJ2A JEEP, SN/CJ2A 181994, refurbished to look like a WWII MB military jeep (don’t get me wrong, it is NOT a WWII military jeep) only made to look like one. It would be great for parades or WWII re-enactments. It does have a working military style fender blackout light, military style grill blackout marker lights, MB style spare tire rack, WWII style fuel can with holder, bumperettes, MB style side and corner handles, WWII style tandem hand wipers, military style foot starter, new front OD canvas seats with WWII style seat back pockets, stars, USA lettering and 5 new 6 ply WWII style NDT tires (non-directional tread, pulls just as good in reverse as in forward)….”

1947 CJ-2A Boaz, Al eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Last Ride • TAGS: .

This might be one of my favorite all-time body pictures.  Can you imagine what it took to damage the cowl and dashboard? The seller suggests you might need to get the body replaced, but I’m thinking the body is the best part.

“Serial number 109850. This jeep was built around 1947.  willys built around 240,000 of these jeep from 1945 until 1949.  the serial number of this jeep (109850) shows that it was built around 1947 according to production figures from the willys jeep homepage on the net. The jeep is complete, it runs very well and drives well also. the jeeps body is very rusty , with lots of damage. i would say that the body would need to be replaced;however, the engine, transmission, drivetrain is in good , operating condition. this jeep is in original conditon with all oringinal componets.”

1952 M-38 Millbrae, Ca eBay

• CATEGORIES: M-38

1952_m38_millbraeThe overdrive will get you down the freeway and the 5:38 gears + the winch will get you through the trails.  Nice.

“I’ve had this jeep for about 17 years. In 1996 I decided to bring it back to its military look with some extras. I had the motor and trans. rebuilt and the t case inspected and resealed. The motor is not original,it has a 1964 buick 225 v6. The rest of the drive train is original military issue as far as I know with the addition of a Warn overdrive and a Lockrite locker in the rear dana 44 with 538 gears. The overdrive gives an extra gear in all 3 spds and is great for highway speeds and allows you to keep up with traffic at 65+mph.”

A beautiful FC-150 sells for $38,000 at Russo-Steel

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

Yeah, you read that right.  Craig from the FC-Connection site kindly dropped me a note saying that none other than Tim ‘the tool man’ Allen purchased this beautiful FC-150 for $38,000.  It probably didn’t hurt that the FC was auctioned at the Russo-Steele Auction, the televised auction you might have seen on ESPN2 while flipping through cable channels.

Here’s some images from the FC-Connection site.  And, a link to the Russo-Steel auction page for this FC-150.

1947_cj2athingUPDATE:  This sold for $698

An eWillys reader somehow found this in the ‘other makes’ section of ebay Motors.  It made me laugh, so I have posted this for your Sunday amusement.  Even though the starting bid is only $99, there are no bids.

“… The complete, unaltered 4WD drivetrain from that 1947 Willys Jeep: engine, tranny, transfer case, front & rear drive, suspension, steering, cooling system, etc. was installed on a homemade (C channel) frame. Most of the body, tilt bed & plow were also homemade. I must say, while “strange”, (owner is a carpenter), everthing is “well built”….. “

Award Winner — shortest Ad I’ve ever seen…

• CATEGORIES: News

UPDATE:  I have discovered a theme. There’s an Ad from Los Angeles Craigslist and an Ad from Orange County Craigslist to go along with the original San Diego Ad I show posted at the bottom.  I’ve put them all together, as a suspect the seller is the same for each, and I think I’ve got a bigger picture now ….

San Diego Ad –> Title =  Willys Jeep  …………………. Ad Text = “non op”
Long Beach Ad –> Title = o]]]]]]]]]o ’46 willys ……. Ad Text = “bring your truck, lots of parts I need to clear out.”
Orange County Ad –> Title = ’46 willys ………………. Ad Text = “you put it together”

So, the seller has a non op 1946 willys cj-2a that’s in many parts.  The seller expects you to put it together.  The seller suggests you bring  a truck.  I suggest you offer the seller very little cash for all the effort you will expend putting humpty dumpty back together again.

======

My original post is below:
This Ad which comes from of San Diego is for a “Willys Jeep”.  The text of the ad, in its entirety, is  “non op”.  There’s no pictures, no year, no model.  Maybe it’s a deal? Maybe it’s a waste of time?  It made me laugh …
