Year? M-38 Bisbee, TX $6000


It the floors are good, this could be worth a look.

“M38 military Jeep, same owner 19 years, it had a full mechanical restoration 12 years ago, I have the old parts that were swapped out. It has been sitting 7 years. It will be pretty easy to get it going again. It has a very sold body and frame, pretty amazing actually. It was converted to a 12v system”

1946 CJ-2A Dallas, TX $10,000


Two owner jeep.

“My father purchased this 1946 jeep in 2019 from the original owner here in Dallas. The Willys jeep is a 1946 CJ-2A. It had been in their family since that time. The vehicle was painted white some years ago and was converted to a 12-volt system. The jeep is mostly original with many additional options. A heater, Koenig winch, wipers, blinkers were added to name a few. The original owners manual and framing for the top are also included with a few other random parts. While the jeep would benefit carburetor cleaning the Jeep runs and drives well now. $10,000 obo. Willing to trade. No scams”

“I have a 1948 Willys Jeep for sale. It’s a 4×4 and can’t goes through anything. Tires are brand new and runs and drives. Lots of new parts on it and just got tuned up. Freshly painted. Comes with gas can and flag.

I’ve had it at my deer lease and love it. Only selling because I have now have a smaller deer lease and don’t use it. It runs and drives great and I can send a video of me driving up a rocky hill from this week.

The only bad thing is the brakes are giving me trouble right now and don’t always work. Not sure what’s wrong but brakes are very affordable and easy to work on. I just haven’t had time to mess with it. Also it does not have a title because they were military issued. But comes with bill of sale and can get title easily.”

1943 MB Wills Point, TX $1950


Doesn’t run at the moment, but will run if fluids added, at which point the price also increases ….

1943-mb-willspoint-tx1 1943-mb-willspoint-tx3 1943-mb-willspoint-tx4

“(If I do put fluids in it and test drive it price will increase dramatically as it’s a driving project at that point)

MOTOR DOES RUN WELL! This is a real WW2 Willys MB. It is titled as a 46 Jeep. It is a project. It has a ford 200ci Straight 6 that starts and is turn key, but I have not driven it yet. It needs brakes redone and new tires first before being driveable. (Will include some used 31 inch tires) I’ve removed all the old 6v wiring and have it striped for you to start running your own. I was going to start chopping it all up to make a ratrod, but I figured I would give somebody the chance too bring it back to life before hand. I am open to cash offers, bring a trailer and come give it a good home.”

1961 Kelloggs Aruba Trip and DJ-3A Surrey Contest Prizes

• CATEGORIES: Features

In the spring of 1961 Kelloggs offered a contest with prizes that included DJ-3A Surrey Jeeps. At least two of those winners were from California: N. E. Eastmoore, Sr, out of Bowman, California, and Mrs. Maurine Vogel, out of Pasadena, California. A third, Richard P. Varalin, out of Drums, Pennsylvania, is pictured below.



This for quality image of the back of an All-bran cereal box is the only image I have. A better one can be found on the CJ-3B Page, which also provides information about the contest.

1964 Ad for the CJ-5 with an Outdoor Recreation Theme

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Old News Articles

I find this ad from the June 22, 1964, issue of the Staunton Leader out of Staunton, Virginia, a good early example of a begining move from the jeep as a utility vehicle to it as a vehicle for outdoor recreation. Though the ad still focuses on the jeep as a way to get to these fun endeavors, it wasn’t too much longer before an inflection point where the jeep-journey itself was advertised as fun.

Remember that by 1964, Four Wheeler Magazine had been out for two years, a publication that helped spread the message and the hobby of four wheeling pursuits (clubs, jeeping, modifications, and racing).

Charcoal Gasifier Engine Generator on eBay


Scott spotted this unusual item. If I understand correctly, this has been made to provide a fuel source (out of charcoal) for a jeep engine. I’m not sure what makes this specifically unique for a jeep, as similar systems have been attached to cars. According to this document, a gasifier has been fueling a jeep since 1981 in Laos.

Bill Barriere’s 1978 Pan American Trip

View all the information on eBay

1978-12-03-bill-barriere-expedition-photo-jeep-hood1 1978-12-03-bill-barriere-expedition-photo-jeep-hood2

UPDATE III: Charles Chips — What happened to Bill Barriere, continued (see more info in below updates). (two years after the photo in UPDATE IV) In 1981 Bill launched Charles Chips of Palm Springs, a franchised(?) business that has specialized in home delivery of cookies, pretzels and other snacks in the United States since 1942 


The next week, this photo and caption was published by the Desert Sun in Palm Springs, California. Bill’s adventurer-look was gone, replaced by a more casual-business-looking persona.

UPDATE II: This photo shows Bill on top of the jeep.



Original Post January of 2019 …. UPDATE: Another photo of Bill Barriere and his jeep appeared on eBay (see below). That find sent me once again on the pursuit of the question, “What happened to Bill Barriere’s jeep trip?”. It turns out, he didn’t make it very far. During the early portion of his trip, he crashed into a bridge in the Yukon, which left him with a $7000 repair bill and $1700 tow bill (Yukon to Fairbanks). He decided to abandon the trip idea and, instead, become a mercenary fighter in Nicaragua (and drive his jeep there). Maybe some day I’ll figure out how his life as a mercenary fighter panned out.
