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.

No Updates Today

• CATEGORIES: News

Ann and I spent yesterday moving more stuff from Mom’s place to our place. We have one more load to go, so we will be back there around the 12th. Mom’s place goes up for sale on April 15th and, most likely, will sell within a week. Hopefully, the sale of the property marks the ending of a transformative three years that began with Dad’s passing in 2019. Even without a pandemic this would have been a strange time for us, but add that and other external happenings and it’s been a crazy few years!

Speaking of changes, we have a couple contractors coming this morning to bid on a couple projects, so no updates today. There will be updates Wednesday.

Re-Grading the Little House Lawn

• CATEGORIES: Features

In another of the series of why-I-am-not-working-on-jeeps-right-now posts, the warm weather has allow me to get busy the last couple of days regrading the lawn next to the guest house. The previous owner had put a garden next to the shop. We wanted that to go, because it was in the shade most of the time and because it didn’t make sense for us in that location. In addition, there was a negative slop into the south side of the guest house. Finally, we want to add a walking path along the lawn side of the shop and install some new sprinklers (line were laid for this area, but, we have discovered, the growth of the lean-to-structure (at back) and the construction of the guest house a few years ago appear to have been built, in some cases, over the original lines. So, we are having to locate this sprinkler line as we go.

Here’s what it looked like when we bought the place:

2804-s-wilgus-prosser-26 copy

All those issues led me to regrade the area this weekend. Pulling up the grass turned out to be the most difficult part. So, I used my fork-lift forks to stab, then lift the grass. The result was this jumbled mess.

2022-03-26-grading-little-house-lawn1

Eventually, I got all the area roughed out, with the sod and dirt piled in one big pile.

little-house-south-lawn-dug

With the roughing-out completed, today I will spend some time using a level to see what other work needs to be done, mark the future walk-way path, and layout some additional lines and sprinklers.

Now I just have to find a place for all that dirt!

“August 1942 Willys MBT, buyer pays & sets up shipping.
This trailer was professionally restored by a well known military auto restoration company in the USA. The trailer was found, in-tact and painted black. Upon research, I found that this trailer was never mutilated, it still proudly displays the original data tag, holds all of its original hardware down to the lead washers for the reflectors AND the original markings from WW2. The trailer has the early axle with cast center section, correct lunette, landing leg and combat wheels. Being the first month of production for the trailers, the ACM number is located next to the hand brake rather than under the spring hanger. The trailer comes loaded with all the ammo boxes, fuel can, mortar boxes and parachute pack in the picture. I will do what I can to assist over seas purchasers.
Trailer will not be released until all funds have cleared, no exceptions.”

Anyone Recognize this Seat?

• CATEGORIES: Features, Willys Wagons

Dave’s been trying to figure out some wagon seats he has, but he’s got one seat that he can’t identify (he isn’t sure it belongs to a wagon).

He writes, “I do have one seat that I don’t know about.
Thinking it’s a jeep seat as I got with other jeep stuff but that’s no guarantee.
32” wide. Non folding. Some of original brackets cut.
Believe that part of rear bracket is original. Threaded holes into uprights.”

Here are some pics:
seat-1-dave-lores

seat-2-dave-lores

Meanwhile, Dave was investigating wagon seat differences in general. Neither of us could locate a good source of information on the differences through the years. However, using some of his wagons, he was able to surmise the following. Can anyone provide additional details on the seat differences or point to a good source??:

Per Dave, “Drivers seats are approximately 32” wide, on sliders. Early wagons did not fold (I only have a ’49 with which to compare). Some slightly later wagons driver seats do fold, but I don’t know when that stopped.

Passenger seat seems fairly consistent all throughout, about 15″ wide, long legs fold and tumble. Intermediate or rear narrow seats also about 15” wide, shorter legs fold and tumble.

Wide rear or intermediate seats as stated in parts book, 25” wide. Early ones were non folding, rear legs stab into floor brackets. Maybe also before mounting change became folding. Later fold and tumble.”

1960? DJ-5? Victoria, TX $10,000

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6 • TAGS: , .

This rear-wheel-drive build is interesting. It’s listed as a 1960 DJ-5 but those weren’t built until 1966 (it also lacks the faux battery box lid of a 1960 body). The fenders are later than 1960, too. The half top is one of the nicer ones I’ve seen, but I don’t recognize the model. The engine sounds like it would work well. The work n the jeep looks well done.

“Here is one neat Jeep. This is a CJ-3B that someone did some nice upgrades too. Originally it would have had a F-Head four cylinder in it. Now the Jeep has a strong running 225 Dauntless V6 that offers the perfect amount of power and torque. It fits the Jeep well. Jeep did use these motors from the mid to late 60’s. They’re great!

Power steering was added and a tilt steering column. The Jeep also and a full roll cage and updated fuse block.

The Jeep is fun! It also has a full soft top and soft doors, winch bumper and a small lift. The body is solid….not all rusted out. The dash has a nice well done gauge cluster and rocker switch panel. The brakes pull a bit if you hit them hard.

Its a great Jeep for running around the ranch, beach, neighborhood etc. Its a clear title, Jeep is located in San Antonio Texas. Thanks”

Some glass is cracked but still intact, both side door windows move freely and come with all original hardware. Back door hardware functions as it should. The top is in very good condition. There is some rust and or holes, on some pieces, but overall, this would be great for a restoration project and is solid. I have the majority of the screws, etc., but they are standard size so replacing is not difficult. Also included are the old interior door panels, which are shot but could be used as templates for replacement.”
