MB at the Sinsheim Museum in Germany

• CATEGORIES: Features, Museums

Photos of this modified jeep located at the Auto & Technik Museum, in Sinsheim, Germany, were posted to the G-503 Facebook page. After some various guesses, Alexander Schingerlin explained how this was modified.

“Look what you see at the picture, a Lanz Tractor and a strange looking Willys. Gas was expensive in the years after war and someone put the complete unit – engine, transmission, in an Willys. Thats why the cooler is so high and the Engine so far in the front because of the long transmission of the tractor”

Wood Burning Jeep at the Budensee Museum

• CATEGORIES: Features, Museums • TAGS: .

This is another modified German jeep, but this time it’s a CJ-3A located at the Budensee Museum in Uhldingen-Mühlhofen, Germany. Based on the Facebook caption, it appears to be a wood burning engine.

“(translation from German by Facebook) This Willys Jeep served until the mid-60 s a salary sawer, who moved from home to house. This vehicle prepares the fuel-eating glutton engine for users. What was the solution? Find out more on our historic wooden saw days on 13. and 14.10.2018.”

“1957 Willys Jeep FC-150. If you want to blend in and not have your picture taken as you drive by, move along, nothing to see here. Truck runs well although out of inspection but should pass. Coolest car on island? Perhaps. 4wd with Warn locking hubs. Original hurricane 4, Dana 25 and Dana 44 axles, this will do 43mph and will infuriate the swells in Range Rovers on Milestone, not to mention the insane Wave “drivers” doing 65 around curves. Note the engine access in the cabin…you can adjust your carburetor while driving (and I frequently do). Truck restored 9 years ago, good for a freshening up. A driver….ready for the weekly dump runs or to get huge attention for your business. Award winner at the Daffodil Parade. Rare vehicle in driving condition. $7500 takes it. Have clear MA title”

Fires up every time, drives straight as an arrow and can get up to 60mph. There are just a few minor things that need tending to that I’ll be working on: needs fuel pump gasket, exhaust tip needs to be tacked back in place, and pops out of second gear. Has really been a great Jeep but our family is growing and it’s time. Let me know if you have any questions or need anymore pics.”
