1952 M-38A1 North Stonington, CT Auction

UPDATE: David spotted some 2A tags on this rig, suggesting the title may be problematic.

Bill shared this Hemmings auction. It will be interesting to see what this fetches on Hemmings.

https://www.hemmings.com/auction/1952-willys-m38a1-north-stonington-ct-318166

“This 1952 Willys Jeep M38A1 represents a military-spec example in highly presentable condition, with what the seller describes as a new canvas top and the Jeep’s original engine, which was reportedly built 275 miles ago. The Jeep is said to retain its correct 24-volt electrical system, with auxiliary batteries. Described as having been under current ownership for 15 years, the Jeep is reported to be “free of rust.””

1974 M-151A2 Mutt Seattle, WA Auction

• CATEGORIES: M-151 This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Here’s another Bill pointed our direction. Again, it should be interesting to see how high this goes.

https://www.hemmings.com/auction/1974-am-general-other-wa-503598

“This M151 is powered by the Hercules-sourced 141-cu.in. OHV inline-four. With a compression ratio of 7.5:1, the engine received its fuel mixture via a single carburetor and was rated by the manufacturer at 60 horsepower when new, with 119 lb-ft of torque. The engine in this M151 is reported to be original, with no stated rebuild history. The seller says the manual choke does not need to be used for starting if the engine is warm. An electric fuel pump was reportedly installed in 2018, the M151 reportedly having 24-volt electricals. The manual transmission reportedly “works great,” and the seller states “All-Wheel Drive works great, engaged with a lever switching from 2 to 4 wheel -drive.” The engine bay presents as stock and very clean.”

1953 Ad Willys-Overland Motors “That’s the Story” on eBay

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

I can’t remember running across the ad. It’s an unusual one. The title is “That’s the Story from Willys-Overland Motors”, but really that is pretty much the end of the story of Willys-Overland Motors, as the company assets were shortly wound into Henry Kaiser’s company. This must have been produced shortly after the introduction of the CJ-3B. The cartoonish M-38A1 is pretty unusual, too.

1951 Station Wagon Brochures

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

UPDATE: I discovered going through my files that there were at least two version of the Jamaica brochure. The top brochure has Form number 5CM-SWC2-451-GG, suggesting this was produced in April, while the bottom one is Form number 2CM-SWC2-2-551-GG, which suggests the second one was produced in May.

The interior pageThe back page seems to be the only difference.

1951-04-j05-jamaica-brochure-foldout-comparison1

The interior seems the same:1951-04-j05-jamaica-brochure-foldout-comparison2

============================

Original posted June 20, 2023: This Willys Wagon brochure highlights Willys Overland station wagon’s Jamaica color-choice styling. The brochure includes a cutout of the wagon that swings to the left. That got me thinking … did Willys-Overland ever produce a similar cutout brochure for the Grand Canyon and Caribbean models?

This is the front of the brochure:

1951-jamaica-wagon-brochure1-lores

The wagon image is actually a cutout that folds left to reveal the interior of the wagon:
1951-jamaica-wagon-brochure2-lores

This is the back of the brochure:

1951-jamaica-wagon-brochure3-lores

This information is consistent with a post I published late last year which showed brochures highlighting the color choices for the Jeepster and Wagon. Below is the wagon brochure:

This 1951 brochure gives a branding name to each color choice: Jamaica, Grand Canyon, and Caribbean. Note that this four-page brochure includes the Willys Makes Sense slogan from the Willys Makes Sense campaign the company implemented across it’s adverting in 1951:

Transmission connected to rear differential. Just needs a frame support under the transmission (have original, which could be adapted) and the shift box mounted. Also comes with a Suzuki transfer case. Brand new steering wheel from Kaiser-Willys. Nice early CJ wheels with new radial tires. Frame solid. Has beefy U-joint front axle. Tub is rough but works. Cowl, dash, window frame, hood, and grill are nice. Includes the original engine, transmission, and transfer case (assembled). Was told the engine ran a little rough.”

Patterson Runs Again .. $8000

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

2023-10-01-patterson-1

I spent Saturday and part of Sunday working through some fuel system issues. What I thought was a bad fuel pump (I spent a short time on it this spring) seems to have been some kind of blockage in the line. So, I drained the tank (the updated stainless rear tank has a drain at the bottom), blew the line, then refilled with new gas and, viola, it ran. I think it just sat too long at mom and dad’s. I also replaced the old generator (which didn’t work) with one given to me by Joe-in-Mesa during our Feb visit. So far, it seems to be working.

Below is a short video clip. So, that makes 2 of 4 jeeps running! That’s progress!

The downside for me with this jeep is that I don’t fit in it well (too long of legs). it could also use an alignment. Finally, I wish the brakes stopped a little better, but that’s not a priority at the moment.

The body is rust free. You can drive it as is or repaint and restore it. The jeep includes a very rare Allstate window wash spray system and an equally rare Vacuum tank that adds power for operating the windshield wipers (one is missing a blade .. I haven’t needed to use them).

Being a convertible model, it has the original windshield with twist knobs across the top. I have nearly all the convertible top parts that attached to the body. The convertible loop only has the main bar, not the secondary bar that leaned off the back of the main bar. There is not soft top either.

The tow setup includes a towbar (not shown) that connects to a bracket mounted on the front bumper that uses stock holes, so the bumper remains unmolested.

So, if someone wants to buy this from me for $8000, contact me at d @ deilers.com.

I’ll throw in this three axle trailer for another $8000. I bought it along with the FC Tour jeep, but I think this trailer with just be sitting around and not used much. Since we already have a tilt trailer that can handle the FC, I don’t really need this one. I can take more pics or supply more info if anyone is interested. We towed it from Arizona and, once we got the wiring sorted out, it worked great for us.

“1945 Willy’s WWII MB,.I am tired of hearing it is not all original, when I specifically stated the roof was fabricated by my father, and electric wipers added. Yes it does have all the data plates, yes frame is 100% solid, yes the floor pans are a hundred percent solid, all of the flaking visible in pictures, is the original WWII paint, yes I can vouch for that, I was the one that purchased the paint back in 1988. Please, read description. If 10,000 Dollars Is Way out of your budget, then I don’t know what to say, purchase one for 25 thousand. This is another true barn find. My Grandfather purchased this right out of World War II, yes with title, where it has spent its entire life in New York.no work has been done to the engine, transmission, or rears, yes I can vouch for that because it has been in the family for three generations.

Everything on this Jeep is original EXCLUDING the roof and the electric wipers. Everything worked on this Jeep as it should when it was parked. Will need all basic tuneup items and will run great. Bring a trailer, has one tire that is dry rotted and shot. Selling price is relatively firm at 10,000 but does have a little wiggle room. Again, It does have a title. Also have an ordinance manual and the original World War II lubrication chart that goes into the metal pocket under the hood. If anyone is interested, my grandfather purchased a military starlight scope that used to go on a tripod. I have just the scope, not the tripod, scope does work, and will let that go reasonably. Please, serious offers and cash only. I don’t mean to sound condescending, but offering 2-3,000 for a 78-year-old vehicle that is hundred percent solid is both ridiculous and insulting, I will entertain all serious offers.”
