“Fire Department Jeep/Military Jeep. I have a 1953M 38 A1 military jeep that was later used by the forestry service in Oklahoma. It has been heavily modified and stretched. I bought a jeep off a 5000 acre ranch in Oklahoma. It had been stored in a barn for a long time the jeep is in excellent shape, and well taken care of The engine is seized from sitting. I do have a spare engine that is in good condition. I pulled it out of a m38A1. I did hear it run before being pulled.  I do have a clear title for the jeep and data plates Yes !!!!!! it’s a m38a1 the slave cylinder receptacle and battery box  have been patched with metal and covered up. If you look at the pictures, you can still see the sump from the military gas tank under the tub and the glove box on the driver side. It still has all the military markings under the hood and the frame does have the machine gun mount. It is not a M170 ambulance.!!!!  however, it does have some really interesting toolboxes in the rear. ”

1965 Jeep News Volume 11 Number 2

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This eight-page 1965 Jeep News Volume 11 Number 2 begins by announcing the Vigilante V-8 engine. Unmentioned in the news article was the response by recent purchasers of the six cylinder models, which was a unanimous, “Wow, I coulda had a V8!” .. or am I confusing that with another product? Pages 2-7 continue with more V-8 info, along with marketing and dealer info.

Page eight reports on the 1965 Chicago Auto Show. Jeep showcased eleven vehicles, all decked in a prairie gold color with black vinyl interior trim, which got me thinking … what did Willys Motors and Kaiser Jeep do over the years with their specially trimmed auto show vehicles? Looking back to the 1959 Chicago Auto show (Feb 1959 Jeep News), it was reported that all the vehicles at that show had been sold. Moreover, the display featured a full line of “Willys approved special equipment”, but by 1965 note the second largest word that appears on the display wall: “fun“… the word is written in what might be described as a playful font and style. Moreover, it’s hard to see a piece of special equipment (but the pic on page eight doesn’t show the best view; I tried to find some better pics). I’m beginning to wonder it the marketing firm hired in 1964 had something to do with the shift in perspective, from “useful” vehicles to “fun” vehicles. That could explain it.

Tour Jeep Steering Challenge

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

With the warming weather, I’ve spent some time removing wiring, disassembling the brake (no clutch) and taking apart the steering. It’s clear there is more work than I anticipated, so eWillys will likely drop to an every-three day event or so, especially with Ann pretty much bed-bound for the time being (aggravated shoulder and migraines from the season changing). So, I have limited time.

Back to the FC … Formerly, the steering shaft used three knuckle joints to go from the steering wheel shaft, make a 90 degree turn to head towards the passenger side and over the frame, then a roughly 70 degree turn to head along the frame before reaching the rack and pinion.

To make those turns, the column began its first angle while in the cab, which caused it to dive into the floor near the brake pedal. Given I am moving the break pedal into it’s original location (with a dual brake master cylinder following this strategy** .. see bottom of post for additional note), that means I want to make a straight shot from the steering wheel to the floor, before making my turn under the floor. But, to do that, I need something to make a ninety degree steering turn. It turns out that in 2019, Flaming River built an award winning product to do just that.

Here’s how it looked before I disassembled it:

2024-02-10-fc-tour-jeep-brake3

Here’s the dash off and much of the wiring removed:

2024-02-20-fc-tour-jeep-cockpit2

Here’s where the brake was positioned (easier to see with parts removed):

2024-02-22-disassembled-brake02

This shows it with the floor panel removed:

2024-02-20-fc-tour-jeep-cockpit3From the underside, with most of the column removed, it looks like this:
2024-02-23-steering2

This is the best pic. It shows how I need to go over the frame, travel about 10″, then make a 90 degree angle upward, with a slight angle toward the back.  The best solution seems the most expensive. Note the shaft isn’t bent; that’s an optical illusion due to the wide-angle.

1958 AAA Triptik From the Toledo Automobile Club

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

I thought the inclusion of an ad from Willys Motors of a CJ-5 with a wood bumper (presumably for pushing vehicles) was an odd choice. Why not instead include it with a 3rd party metal push plate? After all, Canfield was making an all metal “pushwood” bumper attachment by 1952, so it’s unclear to me why Willys Motors would feature a wooded bumper in a 1958 ad? Perhaps this was a little known 3rd party wood bumper?
