1947 Bantam T3-C Trailer Olympia, WA $800

• CATEGORIES: trailer

UPDATE II: The previous email was not working correctly. There is a new contact email: You can contact her at bejinzoritsa @ gmail.com (remove spaces around the @) for more info.

UPDATE: Vernon is correct. This is a 1947 Model based on the serial number.

Jennifer is selling her husband’s Bantam trailer project. It hasn’t moved in almost two decades, so she highly recommends it be trailered.  I believe the serial number puts this as a 1947 model.

“We bought the trailer (17-18 years ago, been in our garage ever since) as a ‘one of these days project’ to pull behind our Jeep, and sadly never got around to it……the former owner acquired it in the early 50s and had to clean-out his warehouse due to age-related necessities, no other history or background on the trailer.”

Year? CJ-3A? Zillah, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

year-cj3a-zillah-wa-01

UPDATE: **Sold**

This is a REALLY well done build. The customizations are clean and simply executed. David has a clear title, but the serial number appears to be from the previous L-head engine (not uncommon).

The only issue with the jeep is that the hazards are staying on when the jeep is running. The switch to turn them off isn’t obvious (unclear where that is).

Here are the specs as best as I could determine:

It is a CJ-3A based on the body and the frame
Buick V6 (most likely a 225)
12 volt system
3 Speed (T-14?)
Dana 20 transfercase (single lever)
Custom radiator
Power Steering
Tilt Steering wheel (possibly out of a Cherokee jeep?)
Dana 30 front (most likely)
Dana 44 rear 30 spline axle center pumpkin
Dual tanks with a change-over valve
Swing pedals
Mechanical, but custom, clutch setup.
Dual master brake cylinder
Disc brakes in the front
Drum brakes in the rear (likely 11″)
Full Roll cage, though mounted to the body and not to the frame
Soft top
Serial number likely based on the previous L-head 4 cyl engine
Custom rear bumper

Tom Cruze Update

• CATEGORIES: Features
2022-07-21-lizzie-tomcruze-bettypage

Here is a rare moment of harmony. Left to Right: Lizzie, Tom Cruze, Betty Page

John asked how Tom Cruze was doing, so here’s an update.

Once Tom got rehydrated and got some food in him he was most definitely energized! He’s been climbing and exploring the house. The vet said it best, “He’s a feisty one!”

He doesn’t seem to mind that the dogs out weigh him about 10lbs to 1lb; he gives as much as he gets. Lizzy in particular loves to wrestle with him. She is as gentle as she can be (she’s sort of a lunkhead, so she isn’t all that gentle). Still, the two of them seem to enjoy playing.

The dogs are not fans when Tom tries to nurse. That’s about the only time they will growl at him.

They don’t mind napping together (why do we have such monochromatic animals?):
2022-07-25-girls-tom3-lores

The girls hovering over Tom is the usual state of affairs:

2022-07-25-girls-tom2-lores

Wrestling is another favorite, though mostly it is Tom and Lizzie wrestling (Betty Page mostly just wants to lick him):

1960? Kaiser – Willys Motor Sale Service Mailer

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I missed out on this sales and service mailer which sold on eBay for $31.77. Rare, yes, but $31.77? It was too much for small mailer.

Given it touts the Maverick show (though the plug is relegated to the back of the brochure), I suspect this is probably from 1960. There is no form identifier.
