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 Frankenstinian Monster – Manchester, Ct **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Unusual • TAGS: .

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…


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 …

The Chevy 181 appears to be a 3.0 Liter Marine engine, which is likely a nice 4cyl for the jeep.  This jeep is likely worth a closer look.

Rare Husky Overdrive Nampa, ID **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: OD Other, Transmissions

t90_18tx_huskyod_nampaUPDATE:  **SOLD** Was $750

The Husky Overdrives are very rare. Here are some overdrive links.

  1. Herm’s site has best history on overdrives on the web
  2. The CJ-3B site has some information on overdrives
  3. Here’s a thread on the Early CJ-5 site about Husky vs. Warn

“For sale: T90 Transmission, Dana 18 Transfer Case, & Husky overdrive out of a 1962 Willy’s Jeep CJ5. Comes with a bell housing and adaptor for a small block Chevy if you want it. All worked when pulled a couple of years ago.  Dana 18 overdrives are hard to come by. Husky copied Warns overdrive until Warn sued them and they had to stop. They are supposed to be just as good as the Warn unit.

1963 DJ-3A Gala Surrey Houston, Tx eBay


1963_dj3a_surrey_houstonThere are a TON of great pictures of this Surrey.  I don’t think I’ve seen this Surrey listed previously, but I might have missed it;  it looks like no expense was spared in it’s restoration.

“Purchaced by Wayne Davis because his wife liked the way it looked, this Gala-Surrey was purchaced at a small Jeep dealer in Cleveland, Texas, a full restoration began with an unlimited budget. The car was brought back to its original color scheme of pink and white as no detail was overlooked. The end result revealed a car ready for any show.  Contact Jose at 281 497 1000 with questions about this Jeep”

1957_fc150_sacramentoThe rust doesn’t look all that bad.  This might be a decent price for it.

“This is a 1957 jeep fc 150. its all original but has some things missing and a little rust. things missing that i noticed are the distributar and speedometer. the passenger door is damage but could be fixed by a body guy, some rust but will be surface only and could all be taken off when sandblasted, nothing that bad, i would suggest removing the bed and cab to go through it, these trucks are very easy to pull apart. its got the original engine and was running about ten years ago. most of the parts are willy’s jeep and can be bought still through local dealers. the seats are there and there’s a few extra heads in the bed. i noticed a bunch of spare parts in the bed, i will get an inventory soon. call me if your interested, ill try to answer any questions, erik, 916-218-9187, $ is negotiable and i will deliver it!!…”
