1942 MB Bainbridge Island, Wa $2995

• CATEGORIES: MB, Ordnance - Remanufactureing

This is a British contract jeep and was remanufactured by Allison, so who knows what parts were substituted during that process. Looks like an interesting pone.

“1942 Willys BRT MB Jeep – DOD 3/17/42 – MB128189 (BRT – British Contract Jeep)

Made appox two weeks after the last Slat Grill, this jeep has many slat grill features. It went through a rebuild program by Allison Steel in Phoenix Arizona in Feb, 1945 based on the rebuild tag attached to the dash. They used all sort of parts. A slat grill tub, with lots of Ford parts and pieces too. The DOD (3/17/42) would indicate it was a pressed grill jeep with a glove box. A fairly rare & early jeep.

There are no Ford stampings on the frame, so it’s definitely a Willys. The frame data plate is missing up front; however, there is still a rivet (which can be felt from behind) where the frame plate once was. There is some rust and bubba modifications where plates were welded to the floor, a tail gate was installed, etc. but the data plates are original.

The grill is the early type with no indentation on top. It has a Ford transmission with right side drain plug. Passenger side fender and passenger seat are F marked as well. Driver seat is a slat based on the split at top. Axles appear to be the early type. Rubber hood blocks, all 4 combat rims (although rusted and not for use). It also comes with three (3) older NDT Cooper tires which are not mounted. Four inner tubes are included and all go with the jeep. Engine is a CJ and most likely seized.

Additional photos upon request.

I don’t want to part it out, so it’s being sold as-is. There is no title, but will come with a bill of sale. The jeep rolls so could be easily put on a trailer.”

Sept 1960 Ad and Merch Bulletin

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Documents, Features

I believe this is the first Advertising and Merchandise Bulletin that I have owned (or even seen). I bought several of these together on eBay. The particular one details the “600 series” of tri-fold brochures available during 1960 (which is one of those nagging issues I’ve always wondered about .. how many brochures were made). So, this answers that question. There were only 13 in that series.

When I get a chance, I’ll add links of images to this post.

1964 Mighty Mite Fort Collins, CO **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: Mighty Mites

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was on eBay.

Parts or project. Someone on FB believe it is a M422A1. I am not positive of the differences.


“Military M422 Mighty mite jeep. All aluminum construction with an air cooled v4 engine. These were jeeps were designed to be air lifted by the USMC. This particular jeep was at the Caribou Ranch Recording studio in Colorado. It was used as a vehicle to transport people and goods around the ranch. We purchased the jeep about 5 years ago and had hopes of restoring but currently don’t have time. Supposedly Caribou ranch bought the jeep from the government on and auction. This jeep will likely need a full restoration. Not much is known on the mechanical condition it does appear to be fairly complete. It is missing the front diff but we have the housing. No title.”

“I have an 1952 M38A1 project that I’m trying to pass on to someone else. I’m told it was a Marine Corp. Spec Jeep. The photos show the heavy undercoating and shovel supports as well as the shackles points for lifting.

There are some F-Head parts with it. There are door frames and top supports and seats. A large Galvanized fuel tank that’s in good shape. Some gauges are missing. It has been changed to some 12 volt wiring. The battery box in is good shape. The cover has been modified and does not have the 8 screws.

I want 3000.00 dollars for the Jeep. I can deliver if needed within a reasonable distance to be negotiated.”

Video: 1972 Darien Gap Adventure

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos • TAGS: .

Over the weekend I had time to bend the side bars and create the initial mounting brackets for the side bars. But, my metal saw blade for my evolution chop saw (which has been great) gave out due to an unanticipated dust bag mount project–to help deter flies– for the cows.

I had planned to do updates last night, but, as seems to be a regular occurrence, life got in the way, again. But, thanks to Bill, I found this interesting adventure through the Darien Gap from 1972.
