“Let me say, I know this price is probably high. I sold this 20 plus years ago. It was my stepdads and I found it right after he died and bought it back. I paid too much. I am open to reasonable negotiations. That being said it is a good running driving CJ. ‘51 CJ3a, has Buick V6, 3spd with overdrive, hydraulic clutch setup, elec. fuel pump with fuel cell. Great Jeep with aftermarket buckets. Have a full black top with doors but windows went bad and have spots inside them. Needs bodywork and paint. Body has some rust in usual spots but frame is fine.”

Jeep News Issues & the Fall of 1973 Issue

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: .

Thanks to Illinois Larry, I discovered that I had only posted one of my issues of the Jeep News from the 1970s. It’s not clear to Larry (who has 10 issues) or I (who have 14 issues) just how many were produced, but between our collection, there were at least 15 issues published.

Here’s an overview of covers of what I have, followed by a photo of what Larry has that I don’t. Strangely, many of these lack the published year, so figuring out when some of these issues were published is tricky:

This is the cover page from what we believe is Larry’s Winter Fall-Winter 1981-1982 issue.

FALL 1973 Issue: This is the earliest issue I have and may be one of the first ones, if not the first.

“This jeep was a us Navy CJ3A JEEP used for towing aircraft around on base and aboard aircraft carriers. It has 65,000 miles and the paint isn’t great but the body only has a couple of small rust spots in the floor. The engine and transmission have had a recent rebuild. It runs and drives like new. It has a clean NJ title. It needs someone who will do the body work, paint it Navy gray and appreciate a classic military jeep. This one only requires minor body work and a Gray coat of paint.”

“t’s been a great summer ride around for the 4 years i’ve owned it. It has had a frame off restoration done in the early 2000s with a rebuilt 134ci flathead. Engine was built by Rogers engine being bored .060 over, .020 over on the mains, .030 over on the rods has been 12v converted running a single wire alternator and a electronic ignition on the distributor. Starts much faster and runs lots better then a points system…very reliable. The carter w-o was fully rebuilt in May of 2022. T90 3 speed transmission has been rebuilt and shifts nice along with the dana 18. The transfer case has been modified to have the ability to run in 2wd low and high. 4×4 with locking hubs works great. Paint has chipping, scratches, showing wear which is why it’s 10k. It comes with two soft tops and doors.”

More Cage Progress

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

On Sunday, I was able to tack together the basic structure of the rear portion of the cage. On Monday, I began work on the front portion.

Here’s a look a the back portion with the body sitting on the frame:

2023-01-23-racer-work-cage3 2023-01-23-racer-work-cage2 2023-01-23-racer-work-cage1

There are still a number of small things to do to complete the rear portion (such as adding rear shock mounts, adding some corner supports, and, of course, welding all the connection points).

To properly calculate the two long side bars, which will run from the mid part of the frame back to the rear loop, I needed the body to be sitting on the frame.

Each side bar has four bends, so getting them both the same is a good challenge.

After LOTS of measurements, angle considerations, and design thoughts, I finally got around to bending the two most difficult angles on the side bar. Below you can see the passenger side bar temporarily in position, though the lower two bends haven’t been finished yet (next bend will direct the bar vertically at the dash, then the final bend will redirect the bar forward under the dash where it will attach to a still-to-be-added cross bar.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get as far as I’d hoped, because Ann had a bad migraine, so I had to take the dogs to the groomers (which they needed pretty badly, as bad weather forced us to cancel two previous appts over the past two months).

2023-01-23-racer-work-cage4 2023-01-23-racer-work-cage6 2023-01-23-racer-work-cage5

I expect that by Friday I’ll have all the bars bent, positioned, and maybe even welded.
