No Updates Sunday

• CATEGORIES: Features

Another long day on Saturday (fortunately, we spent lots of it talking and very little of it driving), so no updates on Sunday. Rusty has a new home. After a short visit with Merlin Hansen to see his new place, we are heading home. We should make it to Champaign, IL, by Sunday evening, where we plan to take a photo with Roger Ebert.

This April 22, 2013 photo provided by Thompson-McClellan shows a bronze statue of Pulitzer Prize winning film critic Roger Ebert giving his famous 'thumbs up" sign in Champaign, Ill. The statue will be unveiled Thursday, April 24, 2014, outside the Virginia Theatre in Champaign where Ebert held his annual film festival. Ebert died in April 2013.

“This jeep was my project in high school about 5 years ago. It’s been kept in the garage since then. Starts and runs like a champ, the engine (original 4 cylinder L-head) was rebuilt just before I got it, so very low hours. We had the transmission rebuilt, shifts like the day it was built. Body and paint (’46 Harvest Tan scheme even though this is a ’47 by serial number) is in excellent condition, interior protected with color matched bed liner. Hat channels are like new, no rust.

“that’s right, the rare CJ6. this is a hell of a rig, one of the survivors. the douche that sold it to me 2 years ago didn’t tell me that the engine was in need of a total overhaul. SO, that’s what it got. still the same engine that came with it from the factory, but has been rebuilt and runs like a champ. this has an auto trans, and the seats (that someone went through a lot to fabricate) allow more leg room than i’ve ever seen in a CJ at all. they need to be recovered, but are an amazing upgrade. wheels could use a sandblast and re-coating (paint or powder coat) the tire rack is made to hold a high lift, a shovel and an axe. body is in amazing shape for the age. full soft top and doors, zippers are not that great but work well enough. has a set of half doors also. full roll cage.

this is an amazing rig. and after i had the cracked head, and shot pistons replaced during the rebuild it’s become one of my fave rigs.

NEEDS- Shocks, better tires. larger fuel tank (personal opinion)

got the rig broken for 6k, and put 3k into it. it’s a jeep, and i know i wont get my money out of it, but it’s worth what it’s listed at. tire kickers and people that complain about dirt will get laughed off the property. it’s a jeep, i expect jeep people.”

Needs work.

“Great project Jeep for someone. CLEAN TITLE Starts right up, runs and drives. Will need some work to be road worthy. Needs some wiring (chassis wiring) Needs brake work. (Master cylinder) One tire leaks down after a few days, will need new tube. Had some oil leaks that should be fixed before it is driven much. Currently has no seats but I’m working on getting some mounted. Motor is a Studebaker Flathead I6 170 from a early 50’s champion or similar The rest of the drivetrain is all original Willy’s. Chassis is rust free but the body has some rust. Will be a fun project for someone. Won’t take much to get it on the road.”

“This thing rolled of the line in 1952. Built for greatness? Absolutely. It runs like a complete champ. This 3-speed manual shifts incredibly. You’re probably thinking “Oh no it’s a stick, but I don’t know how to drive a stick…” If that’s the case, it’s time for you to sack the heck up… Put on your learning pants and let me teach you one of the most essential life lessons you can have as an American citizen.

Don’t worry the tricky stuff has already been done on this bad to the bone 1952 Willy’s M38 Military Jeep. The tranny has been rebuilt with all new gears. As usual, I’m writing slowly because I know you can’t read fast… Motor was completed prior to me purchasing. While, I’m unsure of how many miles are this thing, I’m sure it’s got some memories. Some of the gauges are working, some are not. Which is pretty common for an almost 70 year old vehicle! I have installed a new alternator, 12 volt battery, and have changed all the bulbs. I do have the old 6 volt generator which will go with it.

1961 CJ-6 Santa Fe, TX **Status Unknown**

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $3000.

Runs.

“Up for sale is my 1961 Jeep CJ-6 4×4. The original engine runs like a champ, transmission and transfer case shift great and the 4×4 works as it should. This has been a project so it does need a little work. It has rust on the floors, rockers, tailgate, windshield frame, and fenders, all of which are easy to find replacements and cheap. Mechanically everything works as it should except the brakes, but they will work before I let it leave my house. I have a new master cylinder on order. Shoot me a text with an offer, I don’t know how to price it as it’s a pretty rare model and I’m not a Jeep guy. I don’t have a title at the moment but a bonded title is inexpensive and easy to get. For the right price, I can take care of that as well. ”

“Owned for 27 years. Selling, as I just don’t spend the time on it that it deserves.
Starts, runs and stops, but the engine and drivetrain are old and tired. Brakes are new all around.

Slave cylinders, Master, pads and clips. Parking brake cabling is free and works. Wheel bearings are in good shape, and all 4 recently rebuilt and repacked (left rear replaced). Needs shocks replaced. Especially the back ones. Guy that had it before me, lifted it all around about 2 inches, with “not bad” work. But that means the shock throw is “not standard”.

Wiring is all new. Put in a fuse block as well. Winch is a 12,000lb mechanical from the Power Takeoff, and works like a champ.

4wd all works, locking hubs are smooth, kingpin bearings real nice, and the front knuckle seals newly replaced and serviced with the proper lube, so it doesn’t just ooze right out. Steering gearbox centers up pretty nicely, but it too is simply “old”.

“If you’ve ever wanted a Jeep here is your chance. It was fully rebuilt and running like a champ. Then lost in a bet and sadly sat for a while. I picked it up with dreams of making it a beast. I have realized that I don’t have the time to make it what I want. It needs a gear head to crank on it and it will run like a champ. I will take $1000 cash or we can make a deal.”
