“This is a 1947 Willys CJ2A. It was just rescued out of a collapsing barn. It has been sitting for 25 or more years. The engine is not stuck and the transmission and transfer case shifts. It will need a total restoration. The frame is in good condition as well as all the other under body items. The body has some bad spots like most of these. This is a very good candidate for a restoration and was too good to part out. It is at QTM Parts in Chickamauga, GA.”

Sierra Overdrive Brochure and Instructions

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Documents, Features, OD Other

I found this cool and rare brochure for the ill-fated Sierra Dana 20 overdrive on eBay. It’s printed on 8.5″x11″ paper, so the marketing budget must have been tight (as I understand it, working capital was an early issue, which played a part in the demise of the company). A few years ago there was a post of an article that also highlighted this rare overdrive.

1943 Image of Wounded on Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles

This 1943 image shows a crowd gathered around a jeep as it carries a wounded American. There are several articles about the war with Japan in this August 23, 1943, issue of the Daily Illini, but what caught me by surprise was Northwest Airlines’ attempt to secure a direct air route from Alaska to Tokyo even almost two years before the war eventually ended, as if we weren’t at war with Japan! Talk about advanced planning.

“Listing for a friend not on FB. Message me your number and he will contact you ASAP.

1948 Willys CJ2a “Lefty”. They only produced these for a short period in 1948. No one seems to be clear why they machined this version of the 2a with the spare tire on the left. Some say it was Jeep’s way of complying with a law certain states had at the time. Others say it is for agricultural use for state municipalities. This is a rare option that will make you stand apart from the crowd. The small production numbers makes it even more rare. The Jeep isn’t running because of low compression. It has a new fuel, fuel pump, rebuilt carburetor. Brakes will need to be fixed with new master cylinder. Tub has usual floor pan rust”

1950 CJ-V35/U Palmetto, GA $10,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: I wondered why the exhaust looked odd. Barney notes, the “tri-flanged tail pipe is for the fording tailpipe that would then go vertical up the back corner … but It should be clamped closer to the frame and not hanging down.”

Not perfect and not the ‘finest one still in existence’, but is a fairly solid example of a CJ-V35/U.

https://atlanta.craigslist.org/sat/cto/d/palmetto-willys-jeep-1950-cj-v35/7078698462.html

“For sale is the rarest of all military jeeps. The CJ-V35/U was built in early 1950 for the U.S. Marine Corps and only 1,000 units were built. This particular example is probably the finest one still in existence. It is totally solid and rust free. The original engine has been rebuilt and runs well. Brakes have been rebuilt and it has a new battery and a fresh tune up. They just don’t get any better than this one. All of this model had waterproof engine components and were set up for deep water fording. The waterproof starter, generator, and regulator are still functioning perfectly. I have 90% of the fording hardware to go with this jeep. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own the rarest and the best.”
