Baier Jeep Lighters Sold on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

These are two pretty good examples of Baier Jeep Lighters that sold on eBay yesterday. Before I get to them, I want to show what alternative versions of both jeeps look like. I’m not sure which version is rarer or worth more.

There was another version of this lighter produced that had the map on the room etched into the roof, as seen here (see ebay for more pics). It was accompanied by a smaller jeep with Weisebden etched into the cowl and a bottom where the door is usually etched. This is priced at $275, but I was received an unsolicited offer of $225 for both:

Now for the jeep lighters that sold on eBay yesterday. This first one is the jeep lighter/ash tray combo and it sold for $113.50 (plus $12.70 shipping):

1952 Austin Champ Grand Rapids, MI $13,900

• CATEGORIES: Old Images

Looks in good shape.

https://www.racingjunk.com/Austin/184065608/1952-Austin.html

1952-austin-champ-gr-mn

“This particular Champ starts, runs and drives extremely well with the working four forward and reverse gears which is pretty fun to drive. Another cool thing which makes it nice is the full syncromesh transmission unlike the Jeep counterparts. This would make a great parade or cottage vehicle

The Austin Champ was a Military and Civilian Jeep like vehicle made in the 1950’s. The Military versions were known by Truck, ¼ ton, CT, 4×4, Cargo, FFW and Mk1. After about 30 prototypes were built they decided on what you see here. Most of these vehicles went to the British Military hence the FFW stands for Fitted For Wireless or Remote radio communications.

These were also quite unique because of the indestructible Rolls Royce 4-Cylinder engines that were made for these. Another unique feature is the fact that these engines were basically water-proof. This technology also proved to be extremely expensive too complex and limited to just cross country travel which it was extremely capable of. In-fact, it cost way more than the Land Rovers that were being built for the same thing..”

UPDATE: Craig notes the price has also been listed at $1000.

Bill spotted this project or parts jeep.

https://nh.craigslist.org/cto/d/gilmanton-1952-cj3-willys-flat-fender/7235839597.html

“This CJ became more of a project than I planned. The jeep is complete, I do have the original seat frames with steel pans. The motor is stuck. I pulled the head and am soaking the cylinders with mystery oil. SO OBVIOUSLY IT DOES NOT RUN! I have new 19 guage floor panels to weld in and a brand new 12 volt battery. Was going to convert it to 12 v. The tires all have decent tread and hold air as they should. It rolls very easily to move around and load onto a trailer. These are getting as rare as hen’s teeth! If it doesn’t sell, I’ll get it running, get it roadworthy and keep it. $1,500.”

1946 CJ-2A Marion, IA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $13,050.

(09/29/2019) Could be worth a look.

“74 year old vehicle in great condition for it’s age has minor dings here and there but no major dents or damage to body or frame. Rust free. Needs a little TLC and can be a great winter project. Starts every time, but can be a little touchy with a one barrel carburetor. Numbers matching engine, original dash information tags included. Mostly original except basic maintenance items. Also unsure about the paint being original. Unlikely, unless the paint is very faded because research suggests the factory blue would’ve been much darker. New battery in 2019, whole fuel system replaced, fuel filter, fuel tank all done by Hubbell’s Auto Repair in Marion, IA.

Had professional welder check over undercarriage and did frame brace welding work. Factory storage bin under passenger seat was professionally refabricated and welded by same welder and he did a great job. Factory bikini top included. Originally 6V converted to 12V prior to second owner. 2 front seats, metal is original but cushion and upholstery replaced. Back seat all original. Tires and rims in good shape. Rims are to the period but probably not original.

**Please contact me with any questions. I am helping a friend sell this vehicle so it may take some time to answer your questions, please me patient and allow me time to get your question answered.**”

1950 Photo of Jeepster & Marino Pieretti on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles

To speed up relief pitchers, a bright red Jeepster was employed to run pitchers from the bullpen to the infield. This picture appeared in at least one newspaper, the Times Dispatch out of Richmond Virginia, May 20, 1950 (but the scan of it is terrible, so no need to share it here).

View all the information on eBay

“1950 Press Photo Marino Pieretti climbs out of jeep for game in Cleveland. This is an original press photo. Cleveland. To hurry up ball games, the Cleveland Indians inaugurated jeep service last night for relief pitchers. Here’s Marino Pieretti climbing out of jeep after that long ride from the bull pen to the infield. He relieved Bob Feller on the mound at the start of the seventh inning against the Philadelphia Athletics and was the first to use the service. Baseball. Mario Pieretti. Photo measures 10 x 8.25inches. Photo is dated 05-18-1950.”

The use of jeeps did NOT help the Indians defeat the A’s during their first game, as Cleveland dropped the game 7-5:

Not everyone was impressed with the new idea. A few days after the above photo was taken, one writer thought the jeep (or any vehicle) wasn’t going to speed up the game all that much.

“This Willys Jeep was a frame-off restoration project I did about 5 years ago with the intent of doing some vintage trail rides. every single thing you can possibly think of was replaced and or rebuilt on this. From bumper to bumper. engine, transmission, transfer case, Body, fuel system, breaks, wiring, starter, generator, radiator, even down to the seat cushions….. EVERYTHING was done …. I took it on one ride and it’s been around the property hauling firewood about five times. Aside from that it’s just sat beside the barn …. anyone who’s worked on old cars knows I’m not lying when I say I have much more invested in it then I’m asking. There’s still a few cosmetic odds and ends to do but other tan that this jeep is ready to go.”
