“So it’s time for me to sell my favorite toy. I’ve had this little red Jeep for a couple years now and it’s been a blast. The 78 Buick V6 is a beast in such a little vehicle. The Dana axles are strong and make this thing fun to run on any street or trail. The 33” tires aren’t huge but they’re no rinky dink spares either. The chrome wheels make this thing at home at any hot rod meet up or rigs and coffee too.

It’s got an original Warn 8274 winch with a steel cable. People have offered me a grand just for that, but I won’t separate them. It’s got a flat tow set up bolted on, you can leave it on or remove it quickly. I’ll also include my Willys Tonka truck with it. I bought it from an antique toy seller just to keep these together, always thought it was a cool little deal. Continue reading

1953 Metamet Parts Catalog

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Documents, Features

This rare Metamet catalog came from the UK via eBay. I had hoped there would be information and pics in side about the twelve different style of jeeps sold by Metamet, but this truly only covers the parts. The best part of this might be the back page, which lists the different jeeps. The catalog also has some well-done diagrams.

This is the cover:

1953-metamet-brochure-00-cover-lores

This is the back cover, which is slightly longer than the rest of the catalog. On the left is a list of the Metamet jeeps:

2 CJ-5 Smokey Saucers on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features

These look like the same type of saucers that I got off ebay a couple months ago.

View all the information on eBay

“Up for sale is a PAIR of new old stock, in the box Willys Jeep CJ5 coasters (possibly ashtrays or small plates).  They are in perfect, brand new never used condition, but the box has some water staining on the corner of it.  There are no identifying marks that show a manufacturer on them, but they certainly are vintage, most likely from the 1950’s.  I’m assuming they were some sort of dealer or manufacturer promotional item.  They show a detailed picture of a light green colored Willys Jeep CJ5 on smoked colored glass and they measure about 4-1/2″ in diameter.”

This looks in good shape. It also has a 110 volt outlet.

https://hickory.craigslist.org/tls/d/catawba-hobart-welder-jeep-cj2a-engine/7234588215.html

“1940’s Hobart G-261 welder. Good running Jeep CJ2A industrial engine. Purchased several months ago at an estate auction where it had been neglected in back corner of a garage for decades. Rubbed on it a little, installed new battery, poured water in radiator and in just a short time it started. Engine sounds great, good oil pressure. No water leaks, no oil leaks. Still working out kinks. Gas tank needs good clean out, will require sheet metal removal and I just have not gotten revved up for that yet. Have not tried to weld, have not attempted to test for weld current output. Have plugged a grinder in to 110 volt outlet and that did work.”

UPDATE: These Free-Lock hubs are still available.

(11/18/2020) This ebay ad for Free-Lock hubs provides the most detailed pics I have for this version of the hub. These are 27 spline, which means they were produced after 1972? If that’s the case, then for some reason the Free-Lock brand that was abandoned circa 1959 was resurected for these hubs.
