Unknown CJ-5 Half-Top Model

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

Anyone recognize the manufacturer or model of this hardtop? I noticed there were several models when going through the archives. Those long doors and the odd roof makes it distinctive. The way the front edges hug the curve of the CJ-5 top also make it distinctive.

1. CJ-5 sold out of Lebanon Oregon in 2013:

2. CJ-5 sold out of Boomton, NJ in 2016:

3. Jeep customized CJ-5/flattie sold out of Oakgrove, Minnesota, in 2018:

4. Possible example out of Cedar Falls, Iowa, in 2010:

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.”
