1960-m38a1-dutch-nekaf-bethlehem-pa9

“Clear Pennsylvania title. Has been stored in a barn: perfect for restoration. Corrosion exists at the side panels , below the spare tire, some at rear floor behind the tank. An experienced restorer inspected the vehicle and stated the body is nice and solid and all existing corrosion is basic and easily reparable.

Everywhere else: the hood, (an original shovel is mounted beneath), fenders, windshield, grill, interior front floor, rear deck, wheel wells and dash (some corrosion lower left) are in good condition.

This is a Dutch Army NEKAF with that nation’s” Koninklijke Landmacht” modifications intact: The Dutch Army radiator, auxiliary power outlets inside and out, the ‘guarded’ side mounted marker lights, blackout lights and speedo in Kilometers. This M38A1 uses a waterproof 24 volt system. That has not been modified. Two new 12 volt in-series batteries, their original cables, “T” ignition post, floor-push pedal ignition, voltage regulator, starter, generator, internally housed points, cond, cap, wires and sealed plugs are all in working order: some new.

The vehicle starts, runs and drives. The brakes, clutch, transfer case, HI/low trans, linkage cables, emergency brake, steering gear, suspension (needs shocks), and low- mile military tires are all are in good working order. Throttle, choke, crankcase vent handles and cables operate as designed. An aftermarket fuel pump, f/p regulator and hoses were added however the original fuel pump, hard lines, fittings, mounts and cables were left in their original positions: disarmed. A new fuel tank was purchased but not hooked up.

MOTOR: This 134 cu in Hurricane 4 cylinder engine compression tested at 70,65,70,70. Not Good. These should be around 130. The plugs are black (but not wet), it runs too rich and throttles poorly. I have run it through all three forward gears in both high and low and reverse as well. (The Borg Warner T-90 operates well). The diagnostic on the motor halted this individual’s restoration project. An engine tear-down and rebuild is required: something not covered by my “MOS”, but perfect for a genuine military vehicle restorer.

I have videos of this vehicle running. …….Also included on this NEKAF is an Army M-222 signal generator, whip antenna, antenna mount, and an unrelated handset. The original working canvas top (good. Dirty but no rips or wear spots. All snaps and fasteners function. The window is in excellent condition), folding frame, support bars with all straps intact installs perfectly. A jerry can, mount, rear mounted spare are included. Tires are period military and like new. The seats front and rear are original. Spares include new fuel lines for the original fuel system and new red primered tank, an additional 24 volt generator, fording hose, 1 gallon of correct paint, 2 new drive belts, new under-fuel tank felts, grease tubes, wheel cylinders, extra side mirror and arm, wheel chocks, hydraulic jack etc.”

Andy Poncic Has Passed Away

• CATEGORIES: Features This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

November 2011: Andy on the left and a less-grayer me on the right.

I just heard the news that Andy Poncic, of Phoenicia, New York, passed away September 6, 2023. He was a collector of (mostly) WWII jeeps and an early reader of eWillys.

During our 2011 trip to the East Coast, Andy and his then girlfriend/now wife Wallis invited Ann and I to stay at their place in the Catskills. It was a rainy November day when we pulled up at their small house in the woods. Visiting readers was a new thing at that point, let alone spending the night (they were our second overnight visit, the first being with Bob and Mindy in Ohio earlier in the trip).

At the time I didn’t comment on the extensive collection Andy had, as he preferred I didn’t. To this day it is still one of the largest collections I’ve ever seen, though many were in varying states of disrepair. He told me he didn’t like to fix them up; instead, he liked to buy and sell. That was his hobby. In recent years Andy sold a number of jeeps, so I have no idea what, if any, he had left before he passed away.

During our stay, Andy introduced us to his friend Terry, who ran Terry’s Jeep Farm, which I highlighted in this post.

2011-11-14-terrys-jeep-farm

November 2011: Andy, me, and Terry at Terry’s Jeep Farm

The most memorable event happened as we chatted following dinner. That’s when the rainy weather turned to a storm, knocking out power. That’s remained a funny memory both Ann and I; you just never know what will happen when visiting readers.

I know Andy was hoping we’d drop by again, as he invited us several times, but we just never got back to that area of NY.

Dating PTO Gearboxes

• CATEGORIES: Documents, Features This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Marcelo Boni assembled a series of images that separate rear PTO gearboxes into eight types. 1)  I didn’t know there were that many and 2) I never thought to do this. Unfortunately, this is currently on Facebook, so not everyone will likely see it.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/18657808157/permalink/10160989656268158/

He wrote, “After a post on the CJ2A forum a long time ago
“Dating a rear PTO gearbox”
I started gathering pictures of Rear PTO gearboxes. I was expecting to identify the box period correct for my 1952 CJ3A.
I found 8 different variations.
Early ones are 24/20 tooth configuration.
When does the tooth config have changed to 22/22?”

If anyone knows the answer to that questions, I’ll make sure he gets the info.
