Week Trip to Richmond, Virginia

• CATEGORIES: Features

On Thursday Dec 5th I fly to Richmond, Virginia. I’ll be there (Chester area) through Saturday the 14th doing some work on my cousin’s house. If anyone isn’t too far from there, I may have time to drop by and say hello. I won’t have Ann with me (I’m pretty sure she’s more popular with folks at this point than I), but I might bring my cousin with me (she’s a good substitute for Ann).

(And, reminder, my ewillys account isn’t working. Please send emails to d @ deilers.com)

1945 West-Craft 1″ Scale Model Jeep Ad

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This ad was for a 1″-scale model jeep that measured 11″ when built. West-Craft also offered 1/2″-scale model jeeps for sale, too. I’ve got a few unbuilt 1940s models, but no West-Craft ones.

“1955 JEEP M170 This is a rare bird – rebuilt and in solid shape. As I understand this is a long body M38A1 army jeep and was originally outfitted as troop hauler, radio jeep, or ambulance/medical. May be the early inspiration for the CJ8 Scrambler. Engine rebuilt in 2012. I converted from 24 volt to 12 volt with new starter, alternater, wiring harness, fuse box, head and tail lights, etc. Also has rebuilt carburetor, new fuel pump, lines, fuel filter, steering wheel, horn, new set of tires, rebuilt emergency brake.

Comes with a big winch with remote, tow arms, and a box of random parts (can probably sell on eBay). Seats are new and all have lap belts. Runs, steers, brakes good. Ready for neighborhood drive with kids, grandkids. It does have cracked windshield, but easy to buy kit/replace. Its a rare one and priced to go – so no low ballers please. Clean title.”

“I am selling my used/rebuilt Willys Jeep CJ-3A. I purchased this out of Texas a year or so ago, registered and titled it, but never seem to have the time to use it. Too many projects, not enough time so it’s time to let it go (selling all my CJ items).

This is a very nice rebuilt CJ-3A, which was mechanically gone thru as well as new paint. It is not perfect and the original tub was re-used without any work done to it that I can tell (i.e. dents, holes, etc still there); previous owner liked the proverbial “patina” of it. Starts, runs, drives, and stops; I haven’t used it in over a year, so brought it out of storage.

“I have decided to let go of my rare M170 Willys Front Line Ambulance. This vehicle is in very good condition and has undergone a comprehensive refreshment with new wiring, a rebuilt engine, new hoses, clamps and fluids, a new top and canvas cushions and it comes with an in-and-out military snorkel kit and a folding stretcher.

The vehicle operates on a 24 volt system with new, twin in-line batteries as well as high and low positons for four wheel drive when taken out of two wheel drive for the pavement. Starts, runs, shifts and stops, just like it should. Note that this vehicle will top out at 50 mph, so it is not meant for the highway.

There are a few minor items that need attention such as fixing the gas gauge and oil temp gauge and possibly replacing the steering wheel (have the correct new one) if desired. Most anything is available through online suppliers. Also, the full enclosure and doors are available as well ($4,500).

“I have a 1947 Willy’s Jeep cj2a 3 speed, 4×4. That has been in my family since 1947. It was my great grandpas, he used it on his farm in east tx. It sat in a barn for roughly 40 yrs until my grandpa restored it. It has been garage kept since then. After my grandpa passed away several years ago my mom got the Jeep and she gave it to me. I have no place to keep it besides in my back yard. It runs and drives, and attracts everybodys attention. I know it’s worth a decent amount of money, I’ve done my research. Im asking $8k or best offer or I’m considering trades just let me know what you have the worst I can say is no thanks.”
