CJ-2A Rock Springs, WY (and elsewhere) $3600 … Scam!

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Definitely a scam. This jeep ad has been spotted in several locations now. A reader named Sam took the plunge and emailed the seller. After several rounds of emails, Sam concluded there was no jeep.

Possible scam as the price seems too good. Seller mentions nothing about the jeep.

Any Seattle Area Stratton Hydraulic Lifts?

• CATEGORIES: News

Anyone in the Seattle area have a Stratton Hydraulic Lift? A man named Ernie lives in the Seattle area (don’t know where just yet) and it was his family’s Cleveland, Ohio, machine shop that built the Stratton Lifts. We are hoping that if he sees one in person that it will jog his memory for some stories about them.

Email Barry Thomas at barry@farmjeep.com or me at d@deilers.com if you know of anyone.

You can read more about Ernie and his Machine shop here: https://www.farmjeep.com/2020/11/08/stratton-lift-builder-found-us/

The machine shop is still in business and, if there is enough interest, they may even be willing to manufacture some parts.

“Vintage 1957 Revell Radio Jeep & Trailer Two Sided Dealer Store Display Poster – from a Revell Co. Employee Collection. Has some wear & a fold line. From a smoke free home. Be sure to see my other listings for some other items from this collection.

History of this item: I recently purchased a collection of model related items from a local auction house. They would only tell me that the original owner was a former Revell employee, unfortunately the auction company would not disclose any names or information about the consignor of the collection. The majority of this collection is related to the 1950s Revell models, but there are some items from many other companies. I have been advised by several collectors that this person was most likely a Revell Co. Representative and he would have travelled to Toy Fairs & Industry Trade Shows of the time, where he would have promoted Revell Products and also acquired advertisements from other companies. Please do not contact me about purchasing any items from this collection, they will be listed for auction as I have the time.”

“Bought this a few months ago it ran and drove. It is an absolute blast to drive, like a cross between a tractor and a gokart… I took it around the neighborhood and to the grocery store a few times down the street, then started to prep to remove the tub to fix some rust on the floor panels. There are kits sold online that you just weld in place to make it a fairly siple repair.

I didn’t get very far, removed some body bolts, undid the dash wiring (all clearly labeled for easy re-assembly) You could put it all bag together and just drive it as is without issue, my plan was a full restoration but quickly realizing I do not have the time.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $12,500.

Looks in good shape.

“VERY RARE Jeep FC-150 that will get nothing but stares. This restored 1959 Jeep FC150 is a blast to drive, with a manual transmission and a 4cyl gas motor this truck is sure to bring a smile to your face. Full time 4 wheel drive takes away the worry about getting stuck. Has a fresh paint job (done 2018) and brand new seats (done 2020) new tires, new rims, and a fresh tune up on the motor as well as a new battery.

The bed does have some small rust holes in the bed and above windshield that could be easily fixed. The truck does have some bondo (as to be expected by a 61 year old truck) Other than that, this truck is very clean. No rust on frame at all. You won’t find another truck like this! These trucks are becoming very hard to come by, let alone in this good of condition.”
