Year? Hobart Welder/Generator Lake Worth, FL $375

• CATEGORIES: Industrial-Welder-Generator

Looks like an early 1950s l-head. Seller describes it as diesel, but I doubt that.

https://miami.craigslist.org/pbc/for/d/boca-raton-antic-hobort-willys-welder/7259633410.html

“It is a willys diesel motor needs a 6 volt battery to start needs some cleaning and paint photos will tell all .Someone told me it is the motor that the army uses for jeeps I would think it would have to be dependable.”

“This is a Jeep Willys from the 1940’s we think. It ran when we got it a couple years ago but we were going to fix it up better. We’ve changed our minds and would like to sell it and not fool with it anymore. It could be a nice one if someone took the time to do it. The basic parts are here – the body and windshield and seats, etc. There is rust and some rebuilding is needed.”

Year? Jeepney Riverside, CA $15,000

It doesn’t run at the moment. It has a Missouri title for some reason. There’s nothing to indicate it is a 1946 or was ever a WW2 jeep.

“$15,000 Here is the real deal WW2 willys Jeep Jeepney from the Philippines. Was built in the 1960’s with old war Jeeps left behind. This is a real deal with Isuzu diesel and 4 speed transmission. Old owner was a maga millionaire that took his family in the annual parade every year in this. It was part of the Schats bakery collection. Has a clean Missouri title and had over $5000 invested in the running gear years ago. Been sitting maybe 4 years and will run and drive in a few hours.”

Article and Photos of the Bantam T2E1

UPDATE: This article from August 28, 1941, published in the Daily News (New York City), describes the Bantam BRC-40 T2E1. This is the second generation of of the T2E1, (reportedly, the first generation of the T2E1 had a the full body, which itself was a derivation of the T2, an anti-tank jeep that had the gun between the seats; however, there apparently is some debate on how to define the versions).

Also mentioned below is the Ford Swamp Angel. I’ll have more info on that in an upcoming post.

1941-08-28-daily-news-t2e1-bantam-brc40-lores

This is a T2E1 from an angle I’ve never seen. It was published yesterday on the Quest Masters Museum Facebook page:

1941-09-t2e1-bantam-brc40-w 1941-09-t2e1-bantam-brc40

=====================

Originally published May 31, 2020:

An article from 1941 appears to describe the T2E1 Bantams shown in photos below (a few more photos here also).  The article describes the rifles as 47mm, while the photo captions correctly describe the rifle as a 37mm. Perhaps the difference is that the article was written in July, while the photos were taken late in August? So, maybe, 47mm rifles might have been initially considered? (47mm anti-tank guns were developed by France as early as 1931)

This article was published July 21, 1941, in the Lansing State Journal out of Michigan:

The photos below are snapshots from the above video. They resemble the jeep shown below that was built by Wayne K. Pike. It was built by members of the 9th Service Squadron at the 13th Army Air Base on the island of Moratai.
