“Please read this detailed description before contacting me with questions. This a parts car or MAJOR project. This was my rock crawler up until last summer. It has a jeep CJ2A frame and body and Toyota drivetrain. 22R motor (cracked block at bellhousing connection). Five speed Toyota transmission (worked well when I parked it) and Toyota axles. Here is what is also included in addition to what’s in the pics:

Extra Toyota drivelines
Four extra, almost new, CJ2A leaf springs (two front two rear)

Original front seats

What is missing:
No front axle

You must be able to tow it away with a flat trailer. For the right price, I’ll deliver with my trailer.

At this time I don’t want to last it out.

I just paid the non-op fee this year. It was registered until a few months ago”

Feb 1958? Kaiser-Willys of Canada Ad

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, International

This ad came to me from eBay and has “KW 258” printed in the lower right, which I am interpreting as February 1958 (but I could be wrong). It is more of a “use your jeeps on the farm” type of ad, which Willys Motors seemed to be going away from in the US by this time.

Buick V6 225 near Asheville, NC

• CATEGORIES: wanted

UPDATE: Mark found a second engine. He hopes this second one works!

Mark thought he’d found a Buick 225 V6 for his CJ-3B project, but he discovered the block has a bad cylinder. So, he’s looking for another complete engine, though even a good block will do.

Kristi KT-4G Snow Cat Salem, OR $25,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: , .

Marty spotted this rare (only one of two according to the seller) Krisit Company KT-4G Snow Cat. It uses a CJ-5 body with a Meyer hardtop.

https://salem.craigslist.org/snw/d/salem-1960s-kristi-kt-4g/7174497700.html

“This is 1 of 2 ever produced KT-4G units

Perfect item for a snowcat collector who’s looking for a unique snowcat or a very rare Kristi cat, and Yes… this is a Jeep CJ cab on it, which makes it all that better and more rare – fitting in with your Jeep collection as well.

Running engine when parked few years ago, tracks still got life in them if one wanted to simply get it started and run it for a season or more. Some rust on floor pans, but nothing that cant be quickly fixed/repaired for upcoming seasons use, or put this machine through a proper restoration and make it a museum peace for everyone to envy.

Its very complete with all of the original parts, rest can be easily purchased at most auto-part stores.

Unit is not oversized, thus making it easy to transport and deliver”

A search of Jeep parades at Newspapers.com revealed endless WWII and post-WWII jeep parades for a myriad of causes. Below is a sample:

This August 08, 1943, photo and article published in the Charlotte Observer highlights a jeep parade held for Army Air Force recruitment.

1953 Article on the Hemet-Borrego Jeep Cavalcade

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

This April 21, 1953, article in the News-Pilot out of San Pedro, California, gives some background on the Annual Jeep Cavalcade trip to Borrego, California. The group totaled 175 jeeps and 600 hundred people.

The article’s author makes a pretty blatant plug for the vehicle one of the reporters was driving, noting that the “powerful new Chrysler Sedan provided by Kroll Motors handled with ease and driving comfort that are characteristic of Chrysler engineer.” (insert eye-rolling emoji here) ….

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

Looks in good shape.

https://newjersey.craigslist.org/cto/d/pompton-plains-willys-cj2a-1946/7171241587.html

“Stored indoors for most of its life this 74 year old Willys is in mostly original condition. Floors, body and frame are all solid. The original flathead 4 runs strong, does not burn any oil and does not overheat. Military style tires are in good condition and the 4 wheel drive works as it should. The winch is also functional. The Willys was repainted sometime in the 1960’s. As shown in the first picture a rollbar and vinyl top with doors will come with the Willys along with additional parts. This Willys was always a Civilian Jeep (CJ) and was never a military vehicle. It has been in many parades and is always a favorite.”
