Image from 1967 6-Day War in Israel

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

Joe spotted this photo showing a partially crushed M-38A1.He accidentally found it on Google while searching for something else. I had no idea an M indicates the tank is an M-50 Sherman that was damaged during fighting along the West Bank during 1967. I had no idea running over an M-38A1 could knock out a tank like that! (my poor attempt at humor…).

willys-parts-collection-hesperia-ca5 willys-parts-collection-hesperia-ca6 willys-parts-collection-hesperia-ca78 willys-parts-collection-hesperia-ca8 willys-parts-collection-hesperia-ca9

“Hello, I have a somewhat large Willys parts collection that i would like to sell. Its a collection from my dad and i dating back to the 1980’s. He is 80 and no longer has interest in keeping most of it and honestly there’s so much stuff i don’t really know what all is there. Included are multiple engines, sheet metal, interior parts, transmissions, transfer cases, axles, frames, etc. for wagons, trucks, jeepsters, cj2 cj3, mb and maybe a few cabover parts, trash cans full of parts, containers full of part, etc. There might be a few NOS parts too but I have to look and see what i might keep as i’m likely gonna keep one or two of the Willys vehicles as my kids have been wanting a father kid classic car project. I would like someone who can come to my place in Hesperia and my dads in Riverside to see it all. Keep what you want and sell the rest to other Willys enthusiasts. I don’t have time to part it out or deal with those that are looking for a few parts. Tried that before and it was a big waste of time. Pics only show a part of whats there. Please understand that you will need a decent amount of storage space for all this, preferably inside storage and much of it is very heavy and it will take multiple loads so be realistic. Thanks”

Stolen Terra Tires From Snohomish, WA

• CATEGORIES: Tires and Rims

Mitch’s cousin has these terra tires stolen out of their grandmother’s shop. Feel free to email me at d @ (no spaces around the @) if you see or know anything.

“Typical 31×15.50-15 terras. Stolen from Snohomish County, WA sometime in the last 2 months. Wheels are unique- widened Kelsey Hayes wheels as pictured. 3 have the correct centers, one has had the center crudely replaced with a Ford style center. Torched the opening larger for jeep fitment, crude welds maring the center to the rim.

Stolen from my cousin out of my grandma’s shop. Shop doesn’t get checked very often so we don’t know exactly when they disappeared, but he bought them less than 2 months ago. Should be easy enough to ID.”

2 Circa 1970? Brochures From Switzerland

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, International • TAGS: , .

Titled Geschlossener Jeep fur Sommer und Winter, these two brochures came from Switzerland. The majority of the images show configurations for the CJ-6, but a CJ-3A looking jeep is shown as is a CJ-5. You can see one brochure has “72” written on it, which *might* be a reference to 1972? Those seem like some nice configurations of well-built tops.

Angles National Forest’s New Fire Jeeps

A March 30, 1947, article in the Metropolitan Pasadena Star-News introduced the Forest Service’s ten new CJ-2As to California readers. These vehicles were equipped with two-way radios to aid fire control.

The article notes that a Weasel was being tested, along with the development of a four-wheel-drive vehicle that would be better for forest fire fighting, but I could find no references on the internet to an offload vehicle designed by Ira Funk.

(08/31/2020) This appears to have a Worman Jee-Cab hardtop.

“Running and driving and very original cj2a. Getting harder to find these! Some rough edges but a great base to build into a classic head-turner or fun 4×4. Starts and runs and goes through the gears fine. Brakes need bled, but it will stop- eventually. Pto winch works. Body mostly very straight. Original seat bases there with some decent newer passenger van seats on them now. Fairly comfortable. Need bolted in. $3500 obo.”
