Enjoying Patterson

• CATEGORIES: Features

No updates Monday.

Karson and his girlfriend Mariah are visiting Seattle, so I took them on a short drive in Patterson. Karson wanted to drive, and though he’d never driven a stick, let alone a column shift, he gave it a try. He only stalled it once (though we never got out of first gear).

1957 Photo of Landing Craft Retriever and M-38 on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

That Landing Craft Retriever looks like a real-life transformer!

View all the information on eBay

“1957 Press Photo Fort Story, Virginia-An Army landing craft retriever and Jeep. This is an original press photo. Fort Story, Virginia-The Army’s conventional “jeep” squeezes over to the side of the road to make room for a new landing craft retriever. Weighing 101 tons, the LCR is 75 feet long, 38 feet wide and 23 feet high. It is used by the Army to repair over-turned or beached landing craft. It can drive over the craft and lift it for re-floating or repair, much like vehicles utilized in lumber yards. (US Army-ships-boats & crafts) Photo measures 9 x 7.25 inches. Photo is dated 05-07-1957.”

“I have a 1957 Willy’s Jeep CJ-6 for sale. It has a clean title and is currently registered as a horseless carriage in Colorado. It could also be registered as a collector vehicle depending on your desired use. For completeness it is registered as a 1954 Willy’s. This was the case when I acquired it ~2 years ago. The research I have done on the serial number/VIN suggests it is actually a 1957. This is not an issue I just wanted to highlight what I know.

I purchased it ~2 years ago. The previous owner had done quite a bit of work on the vehicle. What I know of what he did is listed below. Overall it is in really good condition. I have replaced the battery and it starts right up every time. It does not have power steering or brakes. It is a great off road vehicle as is, or is a great starting platform for an even better off road build. It has great dimensions for an off road build. The extra 20” in length over the CJ-5 provides considerable stability. Can also be driven in town and would be a fun show car.
