1953 CJ-3B Trout Run, PA $1800

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: .

This runs and has a Kelly hardtop.

https://www.facebook.com/commerce/listing/746192422638585

“Up for sale is my 1953 Willys Cj3B Jeep. This jeep is a project and would make a nice project for someone over the winter. The jeep runs and drives but needs brake work and a tune up and some electrical stuff with the lights sorted out. It hasn’t ran in a few months, but I have no doubt it will start and I’ll be putting a battery in it tomorrow and starting it. The brakes stop the jeep but not well. The body is rough. It’s been patched over and re-patched in some places. It has fiberglass front fenders. New shocks on the front. I do have new led tail lights for it, an orginal heater, and an electronic ignition module for the distributer that will be included. The top needs a little welding work. Tires are dry rotted bad and leak. A set of steel rims are included as well. I have a clean title in my name. Asking $1800 for this classic… who needs a side by side when you can have this?! Work on it over the winter and have a fun jeep to cruise in when it’s spring time. Sold as is.”

1946 CJ-2A Tulsa, OK $5000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $5000.

(11/12/2020) This jeep has undergone some modifications. The body has been cut in places and patched in others. Perhaps the most unusual aspect of this jeep is the hood (aftermarket?), which is mounted at an angle with the back up high, presumably to fit the Chevy 350.

I am selling a very nice 1946 Jeep Willys-Overland CJ-2A, twin stick 4×4, manual, 3 speed. It has had a frame-off restoration. No rust on the cab. VERY STURDY, no rusted through portions. Nice, thick paint. The paint is pretty good overall, but has scratches and imperfections. The has been swapped for a Chevy 350 with true dual exhaust with cherry bombs (Sounds good, not obnoxiously loud). It starts easily, runs great, has tons of power, and drives well both offroad and street. The transmission was pulled from a CJ-2A 6 cylinder, and the remaining drive train and axles are all original to the vehicle. The passenger seat flips up. The windshield folds down. The lights work.

“Check out this sweet 1951 cj3a. She has a very solid body. Bubba cut a 2 holes in the rear. I’m guessing to use so kind of equipment. Mobile welder or something off a PTO. She was a work jeep for sure. But looks to be taken care off. Other then the hood the body has this cool German desert camo kind of patina too it and check out the vintage mascot painted one it. It says “go devil powered” pretty Rad!! Also on the tail gate you can still make out the willys four wheel drive. I have a windshield frame gas tank and radiator for it. As is. has a tile and non op reg. But she has her spot in line to be fixed up and it won’t take much to get her going and street worthy again!!”

Meyer Snow Plow & ElectroLift Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

The Meyer Snow Plow brochure includes a large section about the ElectroLift. Labeled form no. 3-163, the brochure is a standard paper side with a half-paper-sized section that folds out horizontally to reveal more details about the Electrolift. There is not date on this brochure, but I’d guess early 1960s.

2 Meyer Snow Plow Brochures

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

These two two-page brochures from Meyer once again highlight the company’s snow plows.

This first brochure showcases the Meyer Angle Dozer and is dated July of 1962 and is form no. 3-114 (though on the backside it shows 3-114 R2, suggesting the backside may have been a 1st or 2nd revision):

meyer-sp-form-3-114-1-lores meyer-sp-form-3-114-2-lores

This second one is an undated form no. 3-283, but given it includes a Jeepster Commando, it is likely from the late 1960s.:
