Appears worth a look.

“1946 Willys CJ2A ser#20775
This is an early model civilian jeep. The chassis is good, body is fair. Needs some small patch work but nothing major. The engine turns by hand, transmission shifts fine. Appears to have 2″ lift springs on it. Tires are old but all 4 hold air and have decent tread left. No title, I will provide bill of sale, or I can obtain a title for an additional fee.”

1955/6 CJ-5 Brochures

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This brochure was part of the family of brochures described in this Kaiser/Willys ad post from a few days ago. Curiously, this brochure is labeled form W-239-6, suggesting it was printed for 1956, while the original version of this was form W-239-5.

After comparing the two different versions, I could only find some minor differences between the two. The ‘biggest’ difference was a slight repositioning of the text within the balloons on page 2 of the brochure. Form “5” had misplaced the text slightly, with a few letters extending above a couple balloons. Form “6” seems to have fixed that. It also appears that Form “6” uses a bolder font for the text in the balloons. There could also be some minor differences that I did not detect. Here’s my comparison of the balloons:

1955-form-w-239-6-vs w-239-5

So, now I know I should have bought a W-239-5 version if I wanted the original! Another lesson learned the hard way 🙂 … anyway, here’s the scan of the W-239-6 version:

“1974 Jeep CJ5 plow Jeep. Runs/plows/stops. Pretty rough shape but plows like a beast.

Tires are dry rotted, but have very deep tread and hold air fine. Chains on rear.

New starter and recent points/cap/wires,etc.

New F + R driveshaft Ujoints.

Has block heater, but starts pretty good even with out it.

Body is rough, has wood floors but actually a very solid repair tied into frame and body.

Frame is OK

Good mechanicals, has only 16K miles. I was told that it had never been registered and was only used on a large property for many years. I have been plowing my driveway with it for 6 yrs, it has moved a lot of snow for me and will for you too!

Only reason I am selling this cool old plow Jeep is because I bought a K5 Blazer with plow in very decent shape that is roadworthy. I needed a spare rig I can use year round and tow my small boat within the Summer.”

“1949 Willys CJ3a. Low low serial number (499). Bought to restore. Body was rough. Took the body off and dismantled it. Bought all new panels to put it back together. Blasted and painted the frame and engine block. All new brakes and lines, new exhaust. New fuel tank and lines. New shocks. Replaced junk tranny and transfer case with a good donor. New clutch. New u joints on drive shafts. Included is a whole spare tub, extra cowl, extra fenders, seat frames and a ton of miscellaneous parts. Spent much more in new parts from Walck’s and Kaiser Willys than what I’m asking for the whole thing. The old girl deserves to be finished.
The engine fires and turns freely. The transmission and transfer case shifts as it should. Hate to see it go, but I’m not going to get to it. Pics are from when I bought it and the work in progress. In dry storage now. I can take credit and debit with my Square reader. I’m not a dealer.”

CJ-2A Half Cab Tuftonboro, NH $100

No mention of doors. The triple window setup in the rear makes me think this is a Koenig, but the construction of the rear of the top does not look like any Koenig I’ve documented. To me, the front curves in a way that looks like it was designed to fit snuggly atop a 3A or 3B windshield. Any thought on the model?

F-head Headers … UPDATE

• CATEGORIES: Features

UPDATE: I’ve been told by Clifford Performance that they will go into production with some F-head headers in March. I don’t have any other details to share, except that I should check back in March. So, that’s what I will do. Stay tuned!

(01/21/2020) This is very preliminary, but there may be an opportunity to have a small batch of F-head headers produced. I don’t know a price yet, but my question is, would there be 5-10 people interested in a header if the price worked out reasonably? These would also fit L-heads, though, as I understand it, they wouldn’t be all that effective in producing extra power for the L-heads. Comment below or email me at d @ deilers.com (no spaces around the @).
