1964 Mighty Mite Fort Collins, CO **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: Mighty Mites

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was on eBay.

Parts or project. Someone on FB believe it is a M422A1. I am not positive of the differences.


“Military M422 Mighty mite jeep. All aluminum construction with an air cooled v4 engine. These were jeeps were designed to be air lifted by the USMC. This particular jeep was at the Caribou Ranch Recording studio in Colorado. It was used as a vehicle to transport people and goods around the ranch. We purchased the jeep about 5 years ago and had hopes of restoring but currently don’t have time. Supposedly Caribou ranch bought the jeep from the government on and auction. This jeep will likely need a full restoration. Not much is known on the mechanical condition it does appear to be fairly complete. It is missing the front diff but we have the housing. No title.”

Video: 1972 Darien Gap Adventure

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos • TAGS: .

Over the weekend I had time to bend the side bars and create the initial mounting brackets for the side bars. But, my metal saw blade for my evolution chop saw (which has been great) gave out due to an unanticipated dust bag mount project–to help deter flies– for the cows.

I had planned to do updates last night, but, as seems to be a regular occurrence, life got in the way, again. But, thanks to Bill, I found this interesting adventure through the Darien Gap from 1972.

Mysterious Hubcaps

• CATEGORIES: Features

Grace Wiggins posted these hubcaps to Facebook hoping to get a lead on who made them.

Given the rather ‘sloppy’ serif element at the top of the “J” I’d say these weren’t factory. And, I would be shocked if they were made in the US given Willys Motors and Kaiser Motors’ trademarks.

If does look like they are large enough to fit over most 4WD hubs, which would suggest they weren’t for 2WD models, but I could be wrong.

Happy 11th Anniversary to us!


Friday was our 11th anniversary. We had planned to spend the morning at Art-in-the-Park, an annual event held in Richland, Washington, then, maybe, we’d take a drive over to Walla Walla to have lunch.

But no, instead we spent a romantic day setting up our portable corral panels and moving our squeeze (and fighting several wasp nests), so we could treat a calf that has pink eye. Naturally, it was a hot day, so we both got plenty of sun (and I sweated plenty). With the help of a neighbor, we got the calf into the chute and fixed her up as best as we could. We’ll see how it goes.

Readying the squeeze to be moved:


Our neighbor Rich helping us out:


Of course, we needed a few things, so we made a romantic trek to Tractor Supply (woo hoo!):


While in Sunnyside, we tried a hole-in-the-wall Mexican place (El Fogon); the yelpers were right. Food was great!


Thankfully, I have an awesome wife who appreciates an anniversary gone awry!

Year? CJ-5 w/ BackHoe Bolivar, OH $5500


This package also includes a second backhoe unit. Thanks to Andy for sharing it.

year-cj5-backhoe-bolivar-oh6 year-cj5-backhoe-bolivar-oh7 year-cj5-backhoe-bolivar-oh8 year-cj5-backhoe-bolivar-oh9

“Do you want a Jeep? Do you want a backhoe? Do you want both? Do you dig car shows? Really Dig car shows?? Then you need this: A mid 60s Go For Digger factory backhoe built on a Jeep frame and body. The factory was in Toledo and continues today with a small self propelled backhoe made in West Virginia. These units were used by utility companies and municipalities and few survive today. The gentleman from whom I purchased used it for a water line business for 40 years until he retired in 2020.. The upshot is, this a fully functional, working machine, not barn find project. While it may not be pretty, you can get real work done with this. The original body rusted away and was replaced with the beauty you see here at some point long ago. F head motor. I did pull the head and had valves ground and new seals put in. This price Includes half a truck load of extra parts (most new) such as radiator, cylinders, valves, hoses, clutch, etc. Also includes a complete backhoe assembly which I found a year ago. Includes bill of sale. Cash. No trades. No Venmo. No Cash app. Thank you. Other stuff: Low geared rear end with top speed maybe 20 or so. I also have a handheld hydraulic breaker for this which I’ve never used.”

1958 FC-170 Stake Bed Longmont, CO Auction

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

Blaine shared this FC auction. The Curren price with 12 hours to go is $5000.

“This 1958 Willys Jeep FC170 4×4, originally a 1-ton pickup, has been extensively reimagined as a farm hauler with a new flatbed replacing the cargo box, side stakes, and a transplanted Ford V8 mated to the rest of its original powertrain. Previously used to haul hay on a Colorado horse farm, the FC170 reportedly “runs great” The Jeep is said to be “seldom driven,” its finish is reported to be new, and the seller says that “all rust issues have been remediated,” with new cab corners installed.”

“The original engine in this Jeep has been replaced by a Ford OHV V8 of unspecified vintage. The replacement engine, whose mileage is unknown, has been modified with chromed vertical exhaust stacks. The engine is reported to start easily and idle smoothly. The seller says that the original manual transmission sometimes jumps out of second gear under deceleration. A small weep from the transfer case is observed. The engine bay presents as generally clean.”
