“Listing for a friend. Not my jeep. M38 running jeep serial number 66857 May 1952. Asking $5000. Contact owner at [hidden information]. Located in Alabaster, Al. I looked at the jeep and it is very solid and practically no rust. After consulting other jeep experts we believe it has a early reproduction M38 tub, but these early tubs did not have the cowl battery box or ax/shovel indents in the tub. Jeep comes with over $600 worth of new parts including a CJ wiring harness, manuals and new windshield glass. Would make a great parade jeep, 12 volt, she thinks the brakes were replaced? I did see new brake hoses. Jeep was in the process of being restored up to about 3 weeks ago.”

1947 Photo of Nita Electric “House Jeep”

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Wood bodies

Steve spotted this photo from the University of Kentucky’s archives. It shows a modified MB/GPW with a ‘house’ over it for weather protection.  I assume the owner of the jeep was also the owner of Nita Electric. The image below shows only the jeep; you can view the full photo here.

Someone spent took some care to do a nice refurb of this jeep. The bolt details on the rims and frame look really good.

1952 CJ-3A APU Portland, OR $6700

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $6700. It’s a Szekely APU jeep.

(09/30/2018) Carl and Marty spotted this APU. It appears to be missing the extra gauges, but does have the original data plates, the hood, and the correct engine. The soft top seems to be a Dualmatic, as it has the large square rear window and the two-part doors with snaps (thanks Pascal!).

Photo of Tour Jeep Navigating the Chimney Rock Jeep Trail on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Started as a private endeavor, Chimney Rock was a tourist attraction for most of the 20th Century (more history here). In 1963 a Jeep Trail was added to the Chimney Rock and a tour jeep began ferrying tour groups up the mountain. The tour company had three modified CJ-6 tour jeeps. This photo was likely taken between 1963 and 1977, when the jeep trail became a walking trail. In 2006 Chimney Rock became a North Carolina State Park.

The photo below was taken from the website, but no longer appears on the history page itself.
