I’m not sure what’s going on with the hub on the driver’s side. It includes a Koenig(?) hardtop and a pto winch.

“I have a 1959 Jeep for sale. The body is in good shape, I don’t see any rust anywhere. It’s a 4X4, with a manual transmission. It has an inline six-cylinder engine. It has a metal hard top that can be removed. It has been sitting for a while so it will need to be trailered or hauled, I don’t know when it ran last my uncle was going to get it running but passed away.”

Overdrive Differences

• CATEGORIES: Features, OD Other, OD Saturn/Warn

Will shared pics that show some of the differences between a Warn overdrive with a Husky overdrive. Regarding finding Husky parts, my best guess for parts would be Herm Tilford.

Will writes, “A little while back there was a discussion on the different overdrive units. There where several different units produced and maybe others but the ones I’ve seen are Warn, Dualmatic, Saturn, Husky and ATV overdrives that all looked similar. Saturn is a direct decedent of the Warn as Advance Adapters purchased the tooling from Warn to make the Saturn. I don’t know much about the Dualmatic or ATV except ATV is still produced as is Saturn.

Anyway I had mentioned that the Husky had a different angle to the planetary gears, Sun gear and bowl gear than Warn. These pictures show how the Warn had much more tooth angle than Husky and as such these parts do not interchange and Husky parts are near impossible to find.”

In 1957-58 4 Italians Drove to Toledo the Long Way

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

UPDATE: This was first posted in August of 2016.

This September 13, 1958, article from the Toledo Blade told the story of four italians who drove what appears to be a WWII jeep a distance of 80,000 miles from Italy to Toledo. The men, all newspapermen, planned to drive another 15,000 miles back to Italy. What a trip! I wonder if their counterparts in 2013 knew of their countrymen’s adventure?

Someone was looking for 16″ rims.


“I am selling a set of four Willys CJ3A (can also be used on a CJ2A) that are in excellent condition. These have been in an interior storage facility for years and have no rust or the typical pitting. I don’t see any significant areas of rust, etc. These wheels are 16″ x 4 1/2″.

These need a quick blasting and will be ready to paint. I have some older CJ2A wheels and can include a fifth wheel if you need a complete set. Please drop me a note or call if you have any questions. Open to reasonable offers, but please keep in mind that repo wheels of this era run about $180 ea.

This jeep had been at my grandfathers hunting cabin for as long as I can remember, sat for a long time but with fluid change and tuneup fired right up. I converted to 12 V and pointless distributor along with new carburetor and master cylinder. Comes with several extra new parts. No title it was lost long ago so best for trail rig farm use.

Have video of it running I can share, no smoking knocking etc. Water pump is getting a bit noisy but I have a brand new one that is included just needs to be installed.”
