UPDATE: Tom from ROAM reported (see comments) that this camper FC was a custom installation. He noted that the camper was unsalvageable, so they felt it was a good candidate for something unique. Tom plans to do a post about the camper in the future.
Here’s what it looked like when they bought it:
Here’s the completed project:

“VINTAGE ***1951***WILLYS JEEP
If you are looking for a Jeep that is mechanically sound, dependable and a lot of fun this may be it. Is mostly original except it is painted and has decals as a military jeep just for fun. The seats were recovered by the previous owner. The vehicle is for fun and for farm or ranch or a hunting lease use. And, it is EMP proof.
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was listed at $2800.
It’s a partially completed project.
“World War 2 1943 Willys MB military jeep, frame down restoration sand blasted and painted frame, all new brake system, all new steering system, new seals bearings and slafts in axles, original body is a little rough new tires runs great drives even better. i have run out of steam on this project.”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2150.
(04/27/2014) This doesn’t run and needs some parts.
“1952 Willys M38 Jeep – $2150 firm. Clear title, with soft and hard tops, original data plates with serial numbers, etc. still intact. Tires and soft top weathered. This would be a great renovation project. Was used as daily vehicle over 20 yrs ago until new vehicle was purchased and has been parked since then, anticipating a renovation. Not original engine. Currently not running, needs seats, tires and a lot of TLC”
There appears to be some value here.
“looking to sell my cj2a willys jeep, no time to finish this project, still turned over the last time I worked on it. Needs a lot to get road worth but a fun toy to have when done, perfect for on the farm or off road enthusiast.”
Listed as a 1945, the serial number (and other factors) suggest this is a 1946.
“Willy’s Jeep CJ2A 1945. Original 4 cylinder flathead engine. Recent machine shop overhaul, holds 90 psi. (To buy a rebuilt costs about $2150). Good original windshield. 12 volt electric system. Fresh rebuilt starter. New 12 volt battery. New fuel pump. Carburetor rebuilt. Starts and runs good. Body tub rusted through in places. Original seat frames. It’s now running on a temporary fuel tank. Has extra wide 16″ rims and tires – okay to get around on. Make a great little vehicle to knock about the ranch with or make a fun restoration project. I have the title signed and ready to go…would consider delivering. $1395/OBO”
Unclear how much value is here.
“I am selling a GPW starter kit. Some assembly required.”
New body. Still a project.
“Brand new willys overland body , on 71 v6 cj5 drivetrain, almost complete”
UPDATE: **Status Unknown** No price listed.

(03/17/2014) I’ve never seen the rear support bars of a rollcage bent in the manner these ones are.
“new factory seats
customized gas tank
Our home for Friday and Saturday night was the Thousand Oaks Hampton Inn. Thousand Oaks was great in part because they had some good food stores. The local Whole Foods had some sliced bison meat they sold in a warming bag (kind of like they do with chicken). Since Ann avoids beef most days (beef protein sensitivity) having some Bison was a treat for both of us! Not only do they have food, but this small community seems to have more shopping per square foot than most. There are shops everywhere, but not many houses (that we can see) to support them all.
Saturday we did a big loop. The drive north and west on 23/118 was particularly beautiful, due to the beautiful rocky and hilly terrain. The remainder of the drive (especially 101) was full of traffic.
On Saturday, after sleeping in late (due to being awakened by some walking very heavy in the room above us at 4:30am), our first adventure was a meeting with Dan Horenburger, who has collected an amazing collection of Forward Controls. It was a unique treat to have him share their history with us.
Dan explained that he was brought home in an FC after being born. Clearly he caught the Willys Sickness within just a few days of his birth, the poor guy. By his mid-teens he purchased and rebuilt his first FC. By then there was no turning back, so instead of medication or therapy, he embraced it. Since then he’s spent many years searching for unique vehicles. Fortunately, his professional (carousel restoration) allowed him to travel far and wide to search for them. As you will see he’s been successful.
Here are some of the Fire FCs he owns:
He also has this rare driller attachment on the back of an FC-170:
UPDATE: Was priced at $9500. Status Unknown.
(04/02/2014) Looks like a good build.
