“We have a running 1947 Willys Jeep CJ-2A. It will start and run, but we recommend that the fuel tank be cleaned first. This vehicle has been sitting for many years. It has an inline 4 cylinder engine, 3 speed manual transmission and PTO.

We are a tow company. The vehicle came into our possession as it was removed from the backyard a property upon request of the new owner. The title did not accompany the vehicle. We have removed the jeep from the yard and it now sits at one of the managers houses.

As of August 12th, the DMV has the vehicle registered non-op and fees to restore are $135. Vehicle will come with a Bill of Sale. This can be a great restoration project for someone to keep or willing to flip it. Either way, it has to be sold soon.

“FOR SALE. 1947 Willys Overland, CJ-2A, JEEP
Previous owners have made substantial investments in the restoration of this Jeep. The engine has been rebuilt and starts and runs like new. Compression is 125 PSI in each cylinder. Oil pressure in 40 PSI. Vacuum is 20”/Hg. Brakes have new cylinders and lines. Drums and shoes are in VG condition. Exhaust system is like new with surface rust. New parts include fuel pump and tank, oil bath air cleaner, etc.

At some point in time this vehicle found itself too close to a fire, resulting in blistered paint on the right front and side of the body and two melted plastic parking light lenses. The right front tire is blistered and charred and would be unsafe to use. The other 3 tires are truely like new. Glass cracked. The grill, front fenders and windshield frame are in remarkably nice, rust free condition. The tub, though it looks generally decent, and is quite serviceable, shows rust damage that has been “repaired” (covered up) in a substandard manner. The electrical wiring is new from the battery to the ignition system. The lighting wiring has been disconnected at the switch since some original wires are worn and frayed. Upholstery is, well, take a look at the pictures. Rear seat in good.

Examination of the drive train internals shows little ware. See transmission photo.

If you want a project Jeep where the big stuff is done, take a look at this one. Great potential. Your effort will add value to this classic.

This 72 year old vehicle is being sold as-is, where-is. Clear CA title”

Ed Pranger’s Artworks

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features

Jeff Pranger shared the following two wonderful paintings by his father, Ed. Ed Pranger was a WWII US Navy artist and cartoonist for The Hoist in San Diego. According to Jeff, after the war, when surplus Jeeps were plentiful (and Ed was single), his father and his buddies would go hunting and drinking in their Jeeps in the Yakima, Washington, area. Ed produced many paintings and some had Jeeps.

Both of these paintings appeared to have been painted in Anacortes, Washington, one year a part (each has Ed’s name, the year, and the location it was painted on it). The first was completed in 1988 and the second in 1989.

It being a small world, I traveled through Anacortes (to catch the ferry) both of those years, as I was working in the San Juans in 1988 and then got married in the San Juans in 1989.

Willys MB/GPW From Transformers “Bumblebee” Movie @ Auction

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

UPDATE: Tim discovered that this is back up for sale. The auction is set for August 31, 2019. Starting price is $20,000.

https://www.auctionzip.com/auction-lot/Bumblebee-2018-Screen-Used-Hero-Willys-Jeep-W-L_A3540B7B53

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

Previous post from August 2018 with updates:

On August 25th, the jeep (GPW frame with MB body?) used in the upcoming Transformers was up for auction. It’s unclear whether it sold or not (I suspect not). The starting bid at that time was $19,000.

As you can see in the pics, this MB isn’t all stock. It appears to have a GPW front crossmember. Another pic, from the top rear, suggests it has MB toolboxes.

In the movie, the Bumblebee character starts off as a jeep, but soon becomes a VW, remaining a VW for the remainder of the movie.
