“Original 1946 Agri Jeep. Serial number 43416.

This jeep has a good motor and tranny. Both had been gone through with the intention of a total rebuild to happen. Motor runs strong with new gasket, valves reworked, tranny rebuilt. Frame is in surprisingly great shape as evident in the pics ( maybe due to the layers of paint). Take notice of the front gussets. Original frame tag is present and I also have the matched body tag.

Body tub is shot, no surprise there. Front fenders, grill are decent for restoration. This jeep has an original radiator in great shape and holds fluid. Also included ( not pictured) is a desirable original early & correct Air Filter assembly in great shape.
And a few other new parts including coil, brake master, floor starter.

The PTO and shaft are unfortunately gone as they were stolen in the middle of a move.

Please note:
THIS IS NOT A ROAD READY JEEP. FOR RESTORATION OR PARTS.

Comes with a Signed bill of sale.”

The jeep drives, shifts, and brakes normal. The overdrive unit, when engaged, reduces engine RPM and allows for a more road friendly vehicle. Look up Warn overdrive to get an idea of its value. (have video of driving through gears)

Different Versions of the Koenig-Manufactured Hardtop

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .
1956-dj3a-brochure-2

The small rear window can be seen on the back of the top at the left top of this 1956 DJ-3A brochure.

Mike raised a question the other day, which resulted in us learning something new. He was viewing the launch-brochure for the DJ-3A when he noticed that the Koenig-manufactured hardtop was illustrated with a small rear window. Up to that point, Mike and I and several other folks were under the impression that all these tops had the same size rear window, but in fact that was false.

Instead, it appears that in 1955, through 1946(?) and possibly into 1957, Jeep used a small window in the back of the top, before moving to a larger one. Especially with the DJ-3As, with their lack of side windows, that small window would have made backing up difficult, as it would have been hard to see anything behind the driver.

Here are the four types of hardtops of this style identified so far.

  1. This top was available as early as 1955. This photo is a 1955 press photo showing a CJ-5 with the small window in the back. The CJ-5 version of the top also came with side windows. The image below is also available on eBay.
    cj5-koenig-hardtop-small-rear-window
  2. It’s not clear when the transition occurred, but in late 1956 or in 1957 the top began arriving with a much larger window as seen in this photo.
    1962-cj5-suffern-ny4
  3. Though an early photo of the DJ-3A with this style of top showed it with windows, the production version was manufactured without side windows.
    1956-dj3a-buffalo-ny8This photo shows the same jeep from the side. You can see the lack of side windows.
    1956-dj3a-buffalo-ny7
  4. This image shows a 1964 hardtop on a DJ-3A with the larger window.

Dean Martin and a Jeepster Commando

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

Mike shared this photo that was drifting around Facebook. It’s clip of Dean Martin behind a Jeepster Commando. According to the Facebook post, “Dean Martin, Senta Berger, Janice Rule, and a ‘67 Jeepster Commando Station Wagon. From the 1967 Matt Helm film “The Ambushers”.” As Derek Redmond pointed out, it’s not the only Jeep in that movie.

The Internet Movie Car Database has even more pics from the movie. In fact, Jeepster Commandos appeared in a variety of movies: https://www.imcdb.org/vehicles_make-Jeep_model-Jeepster+Commando.html

Kaiser Jeep Automatic Transmission Service Guide

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Documents, Features

Maury spotted this one. It was on eBay (sold for $17.50). This 1979 guide seems a clever way to diagnose transmission problems.

jeep-automatic-transmission-guide-circular

“”Kaiser Jeep Corporation Automatic Transmission Circular Slide Rule Calculator” by the writers and illustrators of Kaiser Jeep Corporation, Toledo Ohio. No Copyright data; research indicates Kaiser Jeep used Borg-Warner transmissions at least 1970-1972 – probably longer. Here is a guide for use while servicing those transmissions. Kaiser Jeep published the wheel as a Mechanic’s tool, and as an advertising piece, for their dealers selling retail product in that era. Note – the photos you see are of this mechanic’s tool and advertising piece – no ‘Stock Photos’.

A tight firm clean double-wheel ‘slide rule’ calculator in tan/black, unmarked, a trifle darkened after a half-Century on a shelf. 7 1/4″ in diameter; the inner wheel is 5 1/2″ in diameter.

A guide to when service is required on these transmissions;
The order in which the tests should be made;
The reverse shows the Pressure Levels, where the Transmission selector (gearshift) should be place and what RPM or MPH should be utilized in those tests;
Speeds at which downshifts should be made.
A solid clean circular slide rule – lots of data on the reverse. Direct from a postwar Jeep dealer’s library. No mustiness, No smoke smell. We do try to describe them correctly – We want you back as a customer – hundreds of repeat customers. “

It is not titled for street use however can be by following Motor Vehicle registration in your state. It was not titled when I brought it as it was complete rebuild of military registered vehicle and previous owner never licensed for road use. I have driven in several military parades and used on my ranch. I will provide Bill of Sale.Buyer is responsible for shipping.”
