“1966 Willys Jeep CJ6 Clean title Buick v6 New Headman headers and turbo mufflers 3 speed Cooling and charging systems work great Headlights work Have to crank it over a bit to get fuel in the carb, but the new fuel pump will be here on 7/5 No rot, the salt has spared this one Right rear quarter is riveted on Floor panels are missing Has new brakes, master, drums, cyl Block has jb weld patch but no leaks -Distributor clicks, sounds like upper end but if you put your hand on the distributor you can tell that’s where it’s coming from. Once warmed up there is a tick coming from somewhere lower but actually runs pretty decent. No problems spinning tires, one wheel burnout champion. Tires are a little stiff. If your looking for a show jeep id move along, this isn’t the droid your looking for. We use it to run around the farm and cruise. It’s not scared of beer cans and being a cj6 it holds even more. Just clearing out the barn and have to many projects. Trade for 3/4 wheeler”

2 Photos Showing CJ-6 at Hell’s Half Acre on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images • TAGS: .
Hellís Half Acre Marker

Hell’s Half Acre Marker, Hell’s Half Acre, Wyoming … this photo was posted to the Historical Market Database, which I didn’t know existed.

The following two Polaroid photos show a CJ-6 available for a jeep tour of Hell’s Half Acre in Wyoming. The tour was located at Hell’s Half Acre’s post office, which opened in 1940. This page contains a photo of the post office from 1947; souvenirs were available, but no jeep tours at that time. The post office appears to have been leveled sometime in the 1990s or later.

1961 Photo of a CJ-2L(?) Pest Control Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images • TAGS: .

This 1961 photo of a lengthened CJ-2A pest control jeep with a sprayer unit can be found in the Wyoming Digital Archives. Given CJ-2L’s, those extended CJ-2As that appear to have been modified in Spokane and sometimes re-stamped as CJ-2L, were sold out of both Spokane and Montana (see ad examples at the bottom), it is highly probable this could have found its way from either location.

This particular jeep likely has a Porter-Reed aluminum half-cab.

CJ-2L long-wheel-base and CJ-2A extended ads:

This January 1953 ad seems the clearest in terms of a long-wheel-base CJ-2A. Other dealers in the Spokane and Missoula areas carried “lengthened”, “extended” or “long-wheel-base” CJ-2As as well. I believe the ‘extended’ jeeps were likely ones with extended rears, though whether that meant a permanent extension or a bolt on extension is not clear to me.

Fields Motor Company was in Dishman, Washington, which has since been absorbed by suburban Spokane.

It ran when I bought it, and it ran a few months ago, before I changed the carburetor with the correct aftermarket carb from Kaiser Willys. I can’t get it to start, I think the starter is bad.
It’s not road ready, it’s a project still, but it’s not far away, depending how original you want to keep it.

A LOT has been done to this Jeep, thousands of dollars spent. My loss, your gain, selling it, because planning a big move.

What’s not original:
Carburetor
Alternator (converted to 12 volts)
Seat frames (fabricated professionally)
The body’s floor (replaced with steel plate and steel channels by a professional fabrication shop)
Windshield is new safety glass

“I am selling my 1948 Willys CJ-2A … It has always been a dream of mine to own a 40’s vintage jeep decked out in WWII fashion like this ever since I was a young man. I’ve had my fun with it, but now I am more concerned about needed garage space vs. having this. I will sell for the right price, but I certainly won’t give it away.

First and foremost, I do have a clean title to the vehicle. If you don’t follow these things that closely, that is a somewhat rare occurrence.

The jeep is in VERY good shape with very little rust and a body that is in great shape (original body, not a fiberglass version). Here’s what I’ve done to it since owning it:

1. Installed a new head gasket
2. Polish cylinder heads
3. Replaced one cylinder
4. New brake master cylinder and wheel cylinders
5. New brake shoes on all four wheels
6. Cleaned and re-packed all bearings on all wheels
7. New distributor cap
8. New points
9. New thermostat
10. New lower radiator hose
11. Complete oil change / new filter / new oil pan plug
12. Removed all transmission covers, cleaned, repainted, and installed new gaskets
13. Drained gear oil out of front and rear transfer cases, new gaskets, new gear oil
14. New steering tie rod
15. Clean carburetor, new gasket
16. Flush radiator and engine and install new anti-freeze
17. Installed front window latches
18. New transmission shift lever boot
19. New dual shift lever boot
20. New ground strap
21. 12 Volt conversion with fuse box.
22. Installed emergency brake system.
23. New fuel pump.

1963 Jeep News International Vol. 9 No. 7

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: .

I have a two year gap between my 1961 issues of Jeep News and this one from late 1963. During that period, the name was changed from Jeep News to Jeep News International. The use of months as part of the dating system were dropped in favor of using a volume and issue number.

Not surprisingly, the introduction of Wagoneers and Gladiators changed the focus to the full-size jeeps, but there are still legacy jeep photos and articles.
