CJ-6 Body and Chopped Meyer Top Great Falls, MT $800

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6 • TAGS: .

Apparently, the top wasn’t chopped like I previously thought? After looking at this top for comparison http://www.ewillys.com/2020/09/02/meyer-cj-6-hardtop-livingston-mt-1500/, it still looks a little chopped?

If the body is in good shape, this may be worth the price. This is only for the body and hardtop.

M-38A1 Toy Jeep Still Made

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

John’s mother purchased this plastic M-38A1 toy for him in the 1960s for $.79. He was surprised to learn that it was still being made and sold, though the price is now $17.90:

You can also buy it on a certain online store. I won’t mention them…they have enough money.

As I recall, I eventually got the gun out and painted it white. It’s just a coincidence that 30 years later I bought a very nice restored stock CJ-5, it was also white.

Anyway, I’ll probably pick one up and give it to the shop that is restoring my A1. If I can find a flexible blue paint, I may even paint one in USAF blue like mine.

1974 CJ-6 Coudersport, PA $20,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6 • TAGS: , , .

Marty shared this customized CJ-6. He confirmed this was built in Pennsylvania. Both rear axles are drive axles, though one new carrier bearing is needed. The large side windows suggest the Meyer hardtop was modified, too.

1974-cj6-coudersport-pa2 1974-cj6-coudersport-pa3 1974-cj6-coudersport-pa4 1974-cj6-coudersport-pa5

“his is a 74 CJ5 extended to include a third axle. Runs rough at the moment but drives amazingly well. It is powered by a 79 small block 350 which makes this Jeep scream down the road. Very well built all original look steel interior and exterior no fiberglass. Has a stretched and modified steel hard top wrapped in vinyl and a steel half cap included but not in great shape. Also includes the tan bikini top for warmer driving. In the opinion of mine and others (mechanics) this is a very well built rig and can be left as is with minor work and still a one of one head turner in the world!! Needs a carrier bearing on the mid axle rebuilt to drive the rear axle and with that is a live three axle Jeep. Will consider trading for; Scouts, Range Rover, Land Rover, Land cruisers 43,45,or 47 Ford Bronco, Jeep CJ6, CJ8-Scrambler, pretty much anything old cool and definitely 4×4!”

monroe-3point-hitch3

“Up for sale or possible trade is a Willys Jeep Monroe Three Point Hitch or Hydraulic Lift Assembly. This is the last of a large collection of lifts that I’ve liquidated. This Monroe setup is in overall very decent condition for its age and mostly complete with the exception of the one small rear housing mount ( which I might be able to source by the time of a sale or trade) and the hydraulic lines which all guys usually have made new at any hydraulic line shop or even most Napa’s will make you new lines. All the other components of a Monroe lift are present including a few of the super hard parts to find like the original crank shaft driven pump and mount , center link and adjustment Plates.

I was lucky enough to find an original under body mount for these lifts and I had a few made from a Machinest friend of mine which will be included with all hardware to mount. Control Valve and tank assembly included as well as Monroe Lift housing with original ram ( all mounting tabs perfect) , leveling link, lift rods ,left and right lower lift arms, rear draw bar mounts etc. I will also include a copy of the master parts list for a Monroe lift Assembly and a link to an original Monroe operation and care Manual.

I have a few extra housings that may be available as well but no other extra small parts. Feel free to call or text with any questions or specific pic requests. I have sold four of these units recently all within the $2500-$3000 range depending on condition and completeness if lift.

1956 DJ-3A Convertible Woodstock, GA $5000

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A

This seller has posted this convertible DJ-3A in several places on Facebook, asking questions about what it is, etc. My answers too the question of ‘what it is’ resulted in at least one commenter referring to me as an “idiot” (or something similar; I can’t remember the exact word) for not knowing what I was talking about ….. Ah, yes, the cesspool the FB can be. To the commenters credit, after politely calling out the author of that witticism, he did take the time to apologize. But, still …

With that in mind, I am surprised the seller is claiming this is an “all original” DJ-3A, instead of labeling it, as I explained several times to him, a DJ-3A convertible that’s been modified with four wheel drive.

“All original Willy’s dj3a solid frame passenger floor pan has some rust. Engine turns over and has spark and compression. Very rare jeep. Only 2,510 of them made in 1956”
