Year? CJ-3A? Paradise, TX $1350

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

Listed as a 1946 CJ-2A, this looks more like a CJ-3A to me. The 2A ignition switch hole is absent, there are no bow holders, the radiator and oil filter mount are not 2A, and it lacks the front frame horns.

Clark County Jeep Posse in Kojak Episode

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .
kojak-season5-ep-21-60-miles-to-hell

This image capture shows the only flat fender that I saw while fast forwarding through the episode. Naturally, some folks blocked a clear view of it.

On March 11, 1978, an episode of Kojak aired that featured the Clark County Jeep Posse. No doubt some of you are wondering who Kojak is, but for those old enough to remember the detective series, this was the second to the last episode of the series (episode 21 of the 22 shows that year), as that show was cancelled in 1978. The show feels pretty dated in a variety of ways.

LIonel Hall, a son to one of the Jeep Posse members that appears in the episode, alerted me to the presence of the group in the show. By 1978, there weren’t a lot of jeeps left in the Posse, and only one vintage flat fender that I could spot, but it’s still pretty neat to see the jeeps appear in the episode.

The episode can be viewed, with commercial breaks, at Daily Motion, which for some reason has the show reversed (all the text is backwards and the drivers are all on the right side of the vehicles). the name of the episode is 60 Miles to Hell:

Willys Rally’s Essential Workers T-Shirt

Thanks go to Joe-in-Mesa for sending me one of the Willys Rally Essential Workers T-Shirt. I think this t-shirt is a pretty clever way to marry the pandemic with the old Willys workhorses (you can order one here).

This year’s Willys Rally is currently scheduled for May 14-16, 2021, in Moab, Utah. You can learn more at the Willys Rally website.

Jeep Owners Club of New Zealand Hat Pin

• CATEGORIES: Features

I snagged this small “Jeep Owners Club of New Zealand” hat pin from eBay for cheap. Having biked around the South Island of New Zealand when I was 20 years old, I’ve always had a soft spot for the country. I lived off New Zealand meat pies and banana chocolate chip ice cream while there … Boy did they have great ice cream!

“This is a 1948 CJ2A Willy’s Jeep in original color Fiesta yellow. It has the original “L” in line 4 cylinder engine with over drive and oil bath air cleaner. Still has 6 volt system and installed seat belts and turn signals. Top speed 35 mph with overdrive engaged, but it climbs like no other. Runs like a swiss clock and DOES NOT burn any oil. Items included; spare tire, tow bar and signal lights, cargo rack with tool box, spare tire mount and 2 jerry can mounts jerry cans not included. Also included is a fully enclosed canvas vinyal top with doors to include the bikini top in the pics. The oil pan does leak some but any vehicle that’s 73 years old does. Replacing the gasket is the fix.”

4 15″ Rims San Francisco, CA $FREE

• CATEGORIES: News

Scramboleer Dan got these rims from a friend and is giving them away to anyone who can pick them up. One of the four rims is slightly different from the others (marked with a red line). Here’s what Dan wrote:

Here are the details: four 15″ yellow Jeep wheels, 4″ center bore, 4.5″ inside width, 5.5″ outside width.

I got them from a local Jeep buddy who is moving out of the area. The wheels have been sitting outside for years, but I scrubbed them with soap and water. These have what appears to be a rubberized yellow coating on them. Beneath that is a forest green. Free to anyone who can pick them up in San Francisco. Easy backyard access on a quiet street a few minutes from major freeways.

Here are two comments from OWF (can’t confirm as to their accuracy).

Comment 1: “These are the earlier version cj5 rims, pre ‘66. Still had the rivets. These have the smooth face and can not take the dog dish hub caps.”

Comment 2: “You have 3 of the later 50’s – 60’s CJ5 wheels and 1 early CJ 3A 3B CJ5 wheel. See the different shaped dog dish centers.”

Hope someone in the eWillys world can use them!
