May 1961 Jeep News

• CATEGORIES: News

Just one post today. This is the last of the Jeep News papers I bought last month. Hopefully, I can locate some more soon.

This May 1961 issue contains ALOT of Surrey and Dispatcher jeeps: Ice Cream delivery, Pepe ‘actors’, and fleet transportation are just some of the uses. The Kellogg contest fills an entire page with lots of pics. The Truth or Consequences Jeep Derby results are highlighted. Even the Utah Jeep Posse’s are mentioned.

The ‘Jeep’ Fleet line of ads look interesting (page 3) ; I don’t know much about those.

“All basically stock Willy’s except the drivetrain. Chevy 350 engine/SM465 Granny gear 4speeder/NP203 Transfer case. Power steering. Clear Washington title. I never transferred it to my name when I bought the truck. The brakes need repair. I have a new master cylinder that needs to be installed. I am in the process of rebuilding the rear suspension. The truck has a stock Dana 53 rear axle. I was going to convert the truck to a 2WD street truck and have a Ford 9″er with 3:73 gears that I was going to install if you are interested in it I’ll sell it for what I have in it. It has new axle bearings, new brake cylinders, and new brake pads. The front drive shaft was missing when I bought the truck. I was going to convert the truck to a 2WD street truck so it didn’t matter to me. The seat has a new cover on it. LED taillights. Updated headlights. New speedometer and gauges. It’s a running project in the works. It does have a bit of rust that needs to be repaired. I’m asking $6500 OBO now.”

1965 Willys Interlagos Hollywood, CA BaT Auction

• CATEGORIES: News

Blaine shared this rare Brazilian-made Willys Interlagos for auction.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1962-willys-overland-interlagos/

“This 1965 Willys Interlagos Berlinette is one of fewer than 900 Brazilian-made examples built under license from Renault between 1961 and 1966, and was imported to the US at an unknown point. A refurbishment was initiated under previous ownership but remains uncompleted, and the engine has not been started. Several items of trim are missing and the fuel, brake, and cooling systems will need to be recommissioned according to the selling dealer, who acquired the car from the estate of its previous owner in January 2020. This Willys Interlagos is offered with a new front windshield and rear window, spare parts, and a clean California title listing it as a 1962 model.”

“If you know what a CJ-6 is, then I’ve already got your attention. If not, look them up. They are quite rare, and are the grandfather to the CJ8 and the modern day Wrangler Unlimited. This is the last model year for domestic sales and was part of the transitional period from Willys parts over to AMC parts. As such, some cosmetic parts are one year specific and are nearly impossible to find.. nearly.. time and money was all it took. Gave up counting receipts a long time ago. Nobody would have spent that much money on it, unless they considered it to be a hobby.

This Jeep came to me about 8 years ago in really rough shape. It ran and drove but needed a lot of work. Faithfully “resto-modded” with a few things still left to work out if desired. It came from the previous owner with the straight 6 258 and a 5 speed on the floor instead of three. I like the upgrade, but unfortunately don’t recall which model transmission it is. It works very well, and the upper gears allow you to “comfortably” keep up with regular traffic. It also has a custom set of dual exhaust headers and tailpipes that give it a wonderful throaty growl.

“I have decided to let go of my rare M170 Willys Front Line Ambulance. This vehicle is in very good condition and has undergone a comprehensive refreshment with new wiring, a rebuilt engine, new hoses, clamps and fluids, a new top and canvas cushions and it comes with an in-and-out military snorkel kit and a folding stretcher.

The vehicle operates on a 24 volt system with new, twin in-line batteries as well as high and low positons for four wheel drive when taken out of two wheel drive for the pavement. Starts, runs, shifts and stops, just like it should. Note that this vehicle will top out at 50 mph, so it is not meant for the highway.

There are a few minor items that need attention such as fixing the gas gauge and oil temp gauge and possibly replacing the steering wheel (have the correct new one) if desired. Most anything is available through online suppliers. Also, the full enclosure and doors are available as well ($4,500).
