1952 M-38A1 w/ Trailer Bellevue, ID $13,500


This has a blown head gasket, but looks in great condition otherwise.

“This is an Army 1952 Jeep Willys. 24 Volt (2 batteries). I did originally drive it but it now has a head gasket problem beyond my ability to repair. I’m a 26 year vet who was hoping to drive this jeep and enjoy past memories. It needs a mechanics touch.

1969 CJ-5 Bristol, PA $2500


Mike spotted this CJ-5. The body is in pretty good shape for a PA body. However, this does not have a title, so keep that in mind with PA DMV rules. It has a Kelly Manufacturing hardtop.

“Up forsale is a 1969 cj-5 v6 dauntless 3 speed 4×4 This is a great restoration project. Or mechanically get it going and rock the patina. This Jeep spins over and the trans runs through all the gear with a tight shift Patern. No title $2500. Look closely at the back is the tub and how dent/ rot free this tub is. It’s not a rotted mess like most of these cj-5’s are. Also. Has rare and highly sought after wide wheels.”

1965 CJ-5 Orange, CA eBay


Bill shared this solid appearing CJ-5. It’s formerly from Colorado, but being auctioned by what looks to be a non-profit (that accepts donations). It starts, but stalls. It’s been updated to a V8 and a different transmission of some kind. The seller hasn’t confirmed whether there are DMV fees on this, so I would recommend contacting the DMV to see if you can determine if that’s the case.

1941 MB Slat Grille Owensville, IN **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $14,000.

This is a project that includes a second slat grille frame and what the seller believes to be is a correct slat-grille engine.

“41 Slat grill MB project. This is currently a running, driving jeep, however, I am keeping the M38 motor that is in it. The T86 trans has the passenger side fill hole (correct for slat). The current frame is kinda cobbled up, a 2nd slat grill frame with axles & original slat grill is included. Seats are repros with Beechwood Canvas covers, a set of original split-back seats are included. Four 4 1/2″ 90/90 solid wheels and one 4″ 90/90 solid wheel go with. Also included is a chain drive 638632 block that i believe to be an actual slat grill motor (turns free) and 639660c cylinder head. The registration number on the hood is not original, dod tag and frame tag are missing, but the ser# on the title matches the features present on this jeep, I believe it to be the correct ser#. I have estimated the dod to be Dec 19. Clean title in my name. Serious inquiries only please. Located in SW Indiana, delivery available for a fee.”

Willys Light & Electric and Auto-Lite

• CATEGORIES: Features

UPDATE IV: Nate was able to get this running. Check it out.

UPDATE III: See the internals of a Willys Light Plant here

UPDATE II: More pics of Nate’s Willys Light Plant here

UPDATE: There is more history about Miniger and his purchase of John North Willys Stock in 1929 in a 1946 Fortune article.


This postcard is currently listed on eBay.

The other day Nate forwarded me the following images of a Willys home power plant, built by both “Willys Light” and the “Electric Auto-Lite Corporation”. Not knowing much about any of this (and not having the time to source original info from newspapers of the time), I took a break from house painting to venture down internet rabbit holes. What follows is more of a work-in-progress than a finished piece. Hopefully, folks can add or correct the following.

Let’s start with the pics that Nate sent:

Now, stepping back a little in time … These days we in the US are generally pretty spoiled in terms of our access to 24/7 electricity. Of course, this wasn’t always the case. Because of my work on SLAG, I am aware that there was a revolution in mines and smelting with the introduction of power plants. My great great grandfather first introduced an electric plant into his smelter in Leadville in 1881 (followed shortly by electricity in the Salt Lake City’s Germania plant). By then, Broadway in NY was lit with a power plant, as were parts of major cities.


January 04, 1818, from the Leadville Daily Herald.

Such power plants would have been expensive, which is why large municipalities or successful businesses were utilizing them. But, such plants would have been outside the financial reach of the average folks. Still, there was an interest among home and farm owners to replace the gas and oil lamps used in homes.
