“Rolling project. Most of the hard stuff is done.

Rust free tub, nice and straight. Some small damage on the passenger side (see photo). The frame is not boxed.

Strong 289. Cammed and stroked to 305. Holley TA-II carb. Dual Flowmasters.

Original 3-speed Transmission and D18 Xfer case.

I have a NP435 and Novak adapter kit to mate with a D20 transfer case. Rebuild kits for both, new 6 spline main shaft for the transmission, and new input gear for the transfer case. Everything is there to build it out and hook it up to the D44’s. The transmission was rebuilt for a 2wd, so it will need to be redone to mate with the transfer case.

Frame horns extended and shackles reversed. Saginaw steering already swapped in.

EZ Wire 12 fuse mini kit. (I don’t think they offer this kit anymore). The wiring is not finished, but the engine wiring is roughed in and it will run. New alternator and relay, fusible link etc…

Rosemary’s Obit

• CATEGORIES: Features
2015-10-31-halloween2

Rosemary, the queen of Halloween in her natural habitat (part of the garage converted to a dungeon the night of Halloween, 2015).

My mother-in-law passed away on Tuesday afternoon at the age of 76. She was a complicated woman. As I’ve alluded to in the past, her declining health was a factor in the summer-long hiatus of eWillys.

Between the pandemic, her cancer and her COPD, the last two years have been full of medical appointments, oxygen machines, 911 calls, drug management, and patient management. Two Christmas’s in a row have been interrupted with Emergency Room visits.

Much of the work (and frustrating grief) fell into the hands of my wife, Ann, who, through the deaths of her sister and father (both from Huntington’s disease years ago …. a terrible way to go), along with the deaths of several other relatives, has become someone of an expert in palliative (end of life) care, especially related to COPD and/or congestive heart failure. She was a huge asset to my father during his last years and I’ve learned a great deal from her about end of life issues.

My MIL was both grateful for our help and critical of our help during her ill years, because she could be critical of most anything. One of her favorite statements was, “whoever designed this [whatever it was] should be dragged out and shot.” We heard this more and more as she got more and more confused about technology and life; but she was certain she was right and the designer of said service/item was wrong. In fact, she was usually right about everything, whether she was actually right or not.

“I purchased this Willy’s as it was in a off the frame restoration. It has been disassembled and all the parts I was given are still sitting in my barn. The Willy’s was soda blasted and all paint removed. It has since started to surface rust, I don’t want to see all the work lost. I am unable to complete the project and am will to sell. These were marketed from 1948 to 1951, the Jeepster Phaeton was a rather expensive niche vehicle and though admired by many, it was purchased by relatively few. What you see is what you’re buying except for the picture of the beautiful finished Willy’s. I included it as to show how this project was to turn out if I was to finish it.”

Authenticast Surrey Jeeps

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models • TAGS: .

I’ve had a little more time lately to spend sometime on eBay. One of the things I stumbled upon last week was an authenticast Surrey in Cerulean Blue for only $30 (including shipping)!! Now that was a score! I then made an offer on a pink one that I found and that got accepted, too. Here are pics of both.

I was surprised that these have such good weight to them; they are about 1.5lbs. The one moving piece on both is the hood, which lifts (tilting up while the windshield tips back), but the straps must be removed from one side for this to happen.

The Blue one still has some fringe on one side, but a piece of the bumper is missing and a strap is broke:

San Angelo Die Casting and Manufacturing Products For the Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Texas’ San Angelo Die Casting and Manufacturing company was founded by Raymond V. Hart, according to a May 23, 1998, obituary in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The company manufactured a wide range of inventions, from nut shellers used as far south as Brazil to jeep products as evident below.

One of the more unusual products was this jeep trailer. Somewhere in the eWillys archives is an actual example of one of these trailers. I thought it was a custom concoction, but clearly it wasn’t.

san-angelo-tex-trailer-gun-holster1 san-angelo-tex-trailer-gun-holster2

The company’s main jeep-oriented product was gun racks (the firm produced both jeep and non-jeep gun racks). This hard-to-find brochure from the San Angelo Die Casting and Machine Company explains why there are a number of jeeps with similar gun racks in them. That “No. 20” model is particularly prevalent in jeeps.

1954 “Harvest Your Sales Crop” Brochure

This literature was on eBay (and bought by me). Given this unusual document is dated October 1954, I wonder how many other docs like this were distributed to dealers and distributors. This is the first item like this that I’ve run across. I’ll get a better scan of it at some point in the future.

The Willys is painted CAMO with good urethane paint; not rattle can. I fabricated lot of stuff on here so it’s a little different. PS, PB, and bikini top. Have tow bar but not mounted.
