Posts Delayed until Monday

• CATEGORIES: News

UPDATE: I *think* I’ve found a workaround solution, as my main laptop is working once again. If you have 2011 Mac and have vertical lines (as seen below), you likely have a video card problem (aka the AMD graphics chip has failed). There’s a software strategy for working around that which you can find here.

I didn’t get much done yesterday, due to technical difficulties, so updates delayed until Monday. I spent a good deal of time replacing the motherboard on my main laptop, only to find out that the motherboard wasn’t the problem. Sigh. At least I have my 10 year old laptop still (and it still works pretty good).

It appears I will have to use a software hack to make the computer work properly again. So, that’s Sunday’s task….

Not good! I may end up purchasing another laptop. We’ll see how things go….

Newest Al-Toy: A Red CJ-2A

• CATEGORIES: Features

It wasn’t all bad news on Saturday. I now have a red CJ-2A Al-Toy (the one in the middle of the jeeps) to go with my tan Al-Toy. I got the red one for $50 (plus $20 shipping) with all the thanks going to Gayland for picking it up and mailing it to me. It needs one rivet fixed on the hood and one at the bottom of the steering wheel, but otherwise looks in good shape.

1952 4 Wheel Drive Booklet

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

 UPDATE: A revised version of the 4 Wheel Drive “How to” booklet can be viewed here.

I would guess this is an early 1952 booklet. The “W” shown on the back likely puts it after the big push in 1952 to shift towards the Willys marketing umbrella, but not late enough to list the 1953 475 model truck.

UPDATE: **SOLD** for $5200 on eBay.

It’s got some update. No reserve auction. Price was $2650 as of this posting. Curiously, it doesn’t have the channel for the top across the windshield. Either it was removed or this is a DJ-3A convertible windshield.

“I’m in Black Forest CO and the vehicle is in Pueblo CO. I can arrange for viewing, but I’m not going to be there. I have a free and clear title in hand.

It’s a good project vehicle. I bought it sight unseen from a man in Blanca CO 18 months ago and was happy with the buy. I have a ’51 CJ3A and was going to use parts from it, but have been too busy. I’ve done literally nothing with it. It’s parked in my friend’s yard in Pueblo Colorado.

I was told that the engine spun by hand but that’s all I know. It rolled nicely onto the UHaul trailer when I got it. the transmission and transfer case gear levers move freely.
