1963 M-606? Perkasie, PA eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, M-606 (military CJ-3B) • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Still Available. This was listed back in 2014.

Glenn shared this one. It doesn’t seem to have any ‘WILLYS’ or ‘JEEP’ stampings anywhere, suggesting it could be military, but it also could have produced following the decision to stop jeeps with “WILLYS” on them. It does have a ventilating windshield, along with a Koenig hardtop.

“Willys. Cj 3B, military version, M606.

Has military options like fold out windshield, trailer plug, tow hooks, hard top, etc.

Jeep Article with Several Assertions

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine

stacked-jeeps

Bill shared this article that includes several claims I hadn’t encountered. So, I figured I’d shared this to see what others thought:

https://www.quora.com/What-is-a-product-design-detail-that-only-engineers-will-notice/answer/Nelson-McKeeby

  1. “A little known fact is that most United States wheeled vehicles were designed to stack with only limited modification”?
    Was this an actual design goal or a nice to have? Maybe this assertion is true, but I have only see a few examples of stacked jeeps. I can’t imagine the front clip of the Jeep underneath could handle extended shipping in this manner (which, by extension, suggests to me that it was never really ‘designed’ to do this).
  2. “The size of the jeep was dictated by the railroad cars that would carry it”?
    Again, this design aspect is news to me. My understanding is that the design was a carryover from the Bantam design, which was a carryover from the Bantam vehicle size. The short wheelbase was excellent for a light weight design and maneuvarability. 
  3. “The mass of the jeep was dictated by the ability to stack up to four high”?
    Again, I am unfamiliar with this claim.
  4. “Nearly every part of a jeep is catalog ordered…. The basic army Jeep was the same from start too finish”?
    I guess the term “same” would need to be defined, as the basic WWII jeep went through mini alterations over its life.
  5. “Post WW2 when there was a massive shortfall in available farm equipment, there was a period of around seven years when Jeeps were pressed into service as farm equipment.”?
    ummm … they were designed, tested, and marketed as farm vehicles starting during war time.

Anyway, check out the article for other claims.

Sears-Type Meyers Half Cab Scotts Valley, CA Free

• CATEGORIES: Parts • TAGS: .

Dave saved this Sears/Allstate (likely) branded half cab from a neighbor. He has no use for it, so thought someone on ewillys might be able to use it. He is given it away, but don’t be shy about kicking him some coffee money as a thanks. Email is 45fordgpw @ gmail.

Dave wrote, “I was driving my GPW here in town a few months ago when a lady stopped me. She asked if I’d like to take from her a WW2 jeep hardtop. I took her up on the offer to view it, knowing such a thing didn’t exist. She lives over in Ben Lomond and was going to scrap it at the dump, so I rescued it from her. I know next to nothing about these post war hardtops, but figured you’d be a great person to contact. There are no data plate or markings that I can find.  It’s thin gauge but very well made. Half-tops, or pickup tops, we used to call these. Plexiglass is still in one door. I like the hooked stops welded inside the door to rest the glass in different open positions. It’s dirty, with peeling paint, but very salvageable.”
