This has one of the odder front bumpers I’ve seen. The jeep appears to be solid with a Beck or Kelly hardtop. Note what may be a King Seeley 0-8 speedo.

I can’t remember who shared this, but it sure is an odd item. The seller thinks they “have a good idea want it go’s for” and is sure it is a Cushman jeep. If it is a Cushman jeep, it is something I’ve never documented nor can I find anything using Google about it.

“Complete. All parts are here. Was turning the flywheel to tighten bolts and it got stuck. Not sure what the problem is but there was no impact, just a slow turn by hand. Should be an easy fix. The previous owner told me that the engine had been rebuilt. I never got far enough to find out. It rolls and stops. The 12 volt battery is good. I bought a new regulator and stater for 12 volts. About $400 for those. Running would b worth over $5,000. I am thinking $3,000 or the best offer close to that. Clear title. Kept indoors.”

Two Dealer-Focused Ads from 1953 and 1956

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Here are tow ads directed at existing or potential dealers. The first is from Willys-Overland likely in early 1953 and can be found here on eBay. Note the lack of a CJ-3B within the jeep-family that is shown.

1953-willys-dealer-for-year-round-profit-magazine-ad

This second one (here on eBay) is reported to have been published in 1956, though it lacks the CJ-6 or DJ-3A, so maybe early 1956? What’s curious is that by this time, the new “Willys Motors” organization had refocused on the “Jeep” brand. So, to see the brochure specifically refer to “Willys”, especially as the car brand was abandoned, is especially odd. This kind of has a recycled feel, as if someone in a hurry re-used an early 1950s ad.

“Vintage Signal Corps BC-659-J radio with with Signal Corps Case 79-A. The radio is missing some of the crystals and other components so not in working condition. The radio is period correct for WW2 military vehicles and Willys MB/GPW. I’m not sure if the Case 79-A is WW2 or post war. Both leather handles in nice shape and very solid, canvas straps and clips solid, power cables in great shape – nice and flexible.

Would like to sell as a set for $550 but can sell BC-659 radio separately for $450 and CS-79-A for $150.

Due to what the scammers get away with, am selling strictly as-is and as photographed with no returns, this is the exact set you will receive, please see the many photos for what is here, and ask any questions.

“The Jeep was a project for our father who was dealing with some family health issues. This Jeep was like a model he had in the early years. We had a local shop do what I would describe as a makeover. They cleaned and painted the interior and visible exterior surfaces. They made what repairs were required to make it run and drive. In the process we replaced the canvas top, seats, gas tank, tail gate, starter motor, emergence brake kit among other smaller items.
The family enjoyed seeing him driving the Jeep on our property and it was a great distraction for all of us. If you’re interested in a project like this, the makeover we did would be a great first step towards a restoration project. There is the usual body erosion to deal with. The original engine, running gear and steering gear will require repairs to some degree.”

1942 Ford GPW tub, fenders, hood, grill, windshield frame, seats and modern repair panels as shown with the ripples dents, dings, and poor patch repairs you would expect after 80 years of use. The floor and hood were cut for a larger F head engine and transmission and some point in the part along with some rough riveted patches. However all the repair panels and parts (tother than simple flat patches) are included to bring it back. Full front floor pan with hat channels that costs more than $700 dollars on its own plus repair parts including the drivers side pioneer kit area, inner rear fender/tool box panels. Inner windshield frame. Bensinger wheelhouse pockets to move the seats back for more leg room if desired. It has its original F marked seats and side grab handles. All original parts have been soda blasted and weldable primed. Rerpo repair patch parts are factory red primed. Pickup preferred but could work with buyer to arrange shipping in a crate at buyers expense. Was going to build as a LRDP jeep and keep most of the imperfections. Bill of sale only. Asking $3,500. Located in Quakertown, PA.
