Anyone Know Who Made the Corn Picker for W-O?

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, videos • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Any experts out there familiar with 1950s corn pickers? Barry Thomas from asked me to ask you all if anyone knows who built the Corn Picker branded by Willys-Overland (see brochure below). He thinks it was CO-OP, but doesn’t know for sure. You can view his whole corn-picking post here:

In the meantime, enjoy this video of a CJ-5 pulling a corn picker:

“Willys 1953 CJ3B bought 2 years ago we’re it had been living on a farm. Been doing work on it since getting it to run and drive. It has been repainted at some point in its life to red from green. Always thought I would take it back to green at some point. New wiring from Walchs, all new fuel system, new seats, plugs, wires, battery, oil pan and valve cover, oil side cover gaskets. It has rear PTO, overdrive, extra roll bar and rear tire swing that will go with it. I’ve had it running and driving around the neighborhood with the kids but I can’t seem to get it fired back up currently. Has to be alternator or starter solenoid I’m thinking. Time to let go for someone else to cross the finish line with it. Title in hand.”

“1946 Willys. Has a Ford 4 cylinder 2.3L Turbocharged engine that came out of a late 80’s Mustang SVO. I don’t know the mileage. The motor runs great but hasn’t ran in a few years. It’s a project I’ve owned for 5 years and I never got to it and now I need money more than a project. So even though it’s breaking my heart, it’s for sale. It has 1 seat, and no roll cage, the tires are still great and all hold air, they’re 33×12.50×15. The rears are worn down quite a bit more than the fronts because turbocharged burnouts. This thing is awesome and it sounds amazing. Definitely a head turner. Needs a battery and you’ll have to put the MAF back on because it was sitting on the battery so I took it off when the battery was pulled. Needs fresh gas. The front driveline needs a u-joint. It needs trailered. If you don’t have a truck just rent a trailer and I’ll deliver if you’re local. Willing to trade for a camp trailer. [hidden information] Cody. Bill of sale only. Last registered in Utah as OHV”

Unknown Green Hardtop

• CATEGORIES: Features, Parts • TAGS: .

UPDATE: I learned this top was manufactured by a metal worker who manufactured tops for custom tractor trailer companies. He couldn’t find the top he wanted, to he made this one. 

I was asked to look at a top located in Oklahoma last night on a Facebook group. It turned out to be one I’d never seen. Anyone ever seen one like this?

This first photo shows multiple unusual accents. First, the rear roof lines are unlike any other top I’ve seen. The rear of the roof looks to be a 90 degree angle, but at the sides, there is a slope that moves towards the front to hug the rounded edges. The roof’s edges look to be sectioned as goes over the edge, rather than round.  The hinge-type is different. The existence of a wiper suggests it may have been constructed later than most vintage tops (or added onto the top at a later date). The windows appear appear standard sized, as if reused from a Kelly, Koenig, or Meyer hardtop. The front of the top edges inward towards the front, suggestion it was made for a flat fender.

These doors have been indented in a way that allows for a flat piece of glass or plastic. They also look to be suicide doors, with the handle at the front and hinges in back.


The windshield might be the most unusual aspect. Given its short heigh, I think it might be for a CJ-3B.
