“I have a two 1940s CJ2A Willys Jeeps parts vehicles for sale. I used these to help restore my 1948 CJ2A. There are still some bits left on them that someone may be able to use. One is just a frame and the other has the tub although the tub is in pretty rough shape. You will need a trailer and a winch to get these out.

Asking $500 for both or your best offer”

Year? CJ-3B? w/ Unusual Parkette Body Blue Ridge, GA $2500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3B • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Still Available.

(06/22/2021) Given the front clip, this might be a 3B chassis, though the Parkette body is a low-hood version.

The seller is correct about Paul Parker and the body. But, I believe this is the first version of this particular style that I’ve seen. It lacks the side stripe, has fender extensions, has a little different PARKETTE design on the back, has an extra wide lip around the rear, and looks like it has a side step. Very interesting.

“Rare, rare, rare. 48/49 Willys Jeep with Parkette fiberglass body. Believed only a handful made while Paul Parker was back in Georgia. This one is a bit odd as it doesn’t have the “line” above the fender but it does have flared fenders; the Willys nose panel is original equipment. Not sure it’s on the right size frame at the moment but we do have an original Willys bare chassis on the property we can work into the deal.

Engine/trans present. Very cool project. Needs finishing. No title. Bill of sale only. If the ad is up, the Willys is available.”

Racer Update

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features • TAGS: .

Once the water got fixed (found a retired local plumber who still does small jobs and did previous work on our house, so that worked great), I returned to the cage.

The front “loops” have been bent and added, along with a top and mid cross bar. I also added one side bar, with the other almost ready to spot-weld in place. Unfortunately, I ran out of materials, so I need to get a couple more tubes.

As you can see below, I found a seat placement I like. My head rests just below the top of the seat, so plenty of room for a helmet. Now, I just have to figure out how I want to mount them. I was going to weld in the seat frames, but I think I am going to bolt them. This will make it 1) easier to install the floor pan and 2) allow me to change up the seats/position if I’m unhappy with how it feels.

“*800 dollars tonight!* *Selling for a friend* Need gone within a few days. 1947 cj2 Willy’s jeep with a 302 engine under the hood. No Transmission. Needs complete restoration from interior seats, soft top and exterior body work. Lost of rust on tail end with a dent by left taillight. Jeep enthusiast from Denver came to look at it and his opinion on value would be 3800 with transmission 2800 without. But said a serious buyer would probably start around 1700. Vehicle has No title as original owner ( 2 great grandfather never could find it) He Passed away in 1965 However it is a true Willy’s original make with a fantastic history behind it. He is willing to negotiate a bit due to condition but not willing to let a piece of history and family heirloom go for free. Please message me or let me know if you have any additional questions. Located in la junta and it will need to be trailered out. Potentially willing to meet Halfway from whatever destination for an additional fee if needed”

Two Bars Forward, One Backward, and A Leak

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

A couple days ago I bent the front passenger side loop. All was well until the very last (bottom) bend. For the passenger side it would have been okay where it is, but for the driver’s side I felt the bar would be better if it angled more quickly once under the dash so it gave more clearance for the clutch foot.

So, after much hemming and hawing, I bent the driver’s side differently. That turned out better, which meant redoing the passenger side.

You can see a comparison of them below. It’s tough to visualize where the floor/firewall will be, but the sheet metal gives a rough idea.

2023-01-27-racer-cage

Once I get the passenger loop done, the remaining bars ought to be completed more quickly.

However, before I could do that Thursday night we discovered a leak underneath the bathroom of our master bedroom. Ugh. We don’t know when it actually broke, but Thursday night, we could hear a strange noise in the bathroom. Of course, we were about ready for bed, which meant getting re-dressed and dropping into our crawl space where I shut off the water to our house. Friday morning I crawled the length of the house, where I discovered where the water was falling on the plastic. The actual break was in the insulation, but I didn’t locate it. I’d rather get a pro to deal with it.

So, we are house-camping again. On the upside, we tried out the shower in our shop for the first time. It turns out, it works great!

We have a plumber (highly recommended and the uncle of our neighbor) coming tomorrow to look at it, as I’d rather not work with the copper pipe. I want to get it done quickly and get it done right … I got a cage to finish!
