Yellow-Background Approved Willys Service Signs

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

UPDATE: Thanks to Mark for sharing images of his yellow Approved Willys Service sign. That makes three known yellow signs.

As Barney notes in the comments, “Mark said he believed the signs were made using old, solid patio table tops, thus explaining the center hole filled with a bolt. Now we know of 3 and also a more plausible explanation than mine above. It is a cool sign for the price and well built.
Griffith sign 1

Griffith sign 2

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

UPDATE: Originally published May 20, 2024:  Barney Goodwin from Barney’s Jeep Parts just purchased this yellow Approved Willys Service sign, which is similar in colors, content and styling to a sign posted on eWillys back in 2020 (see bottom of post). Does anyone have any history behind these unusual service signs. Barney noted that on the back of his it references Chicago if that’s any help.

Barney added, “This sign is made of heavy gauge steel . It is not flimsy like an import. The edges are rolled and there is a weathered support plank on the back as shown. The rolled edge is painted black. There is stenciling on the back with perhaps a product number For Willys Overland by a Chicago contractor.”

“I’ve owned this 1948 Willys CJ2a since 2009 and have thoroughly enjoyed driving and working on it, but am in a different stage of life and now it’s time to let someone else have some adventures with it.

Highlights:
• Frame-off restoration in 2010. Sandblasted and coated the frame, replaced leaf springs (NOS) and shackles, shocks, overdrive, electrical harness, seat cushions and canvas covers. Engine and transmission were solid when I bought it. Total mileage unknown, I’ve put about 10k on it.
• Body is original steel tub as far as I know. It has a few dings and small ares of corrosion. Original Luzon red re-painted in 2010.
• 134 ci. flathead “Go-Devil” engine with Solex carburetor and electric fuel pump, 3 speed T-90 manual (6 forward speeds with overdrive split), 4WD of course :).
• I have a soft top and all the bows for it. I’ve been told it is an older aftermarket “Sunbrella” top but I’m not 100% sure. It keeps wind and shade off you, but is a little tired and is not waterproof.
• I’ll also include a timing light, dwell meter, mechanical fuel pump, and some other spare parts and accessories.

My goal for this Jeep was never for it to be a show vehicle, just something that looked nice and drove like the original. It runs and drives well; it’s a hoot around town and even more fun up in the mountains”

1944 MB **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

TJ spotted this one. It was listed, with an extra engine, for only $3500 (in Prineville, Oregon). Not surprisingly, it sold quickly!

“I have a 1944 Willys MB for sale. pictures are from 2 years ago, sitting outside, It comes with an extra motor and needs work. The Brakes need to be bled. The fuel pump needs to be installed(I have a new one). The seats need to be put in. The front drive shaft needs to be installed. It’s a good starting point but it’s a great starting point. The engine ran with the other fuel pump; it just was leaking fuel from it”

GPW and MB Orcas Island, WA $7000 for both

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

These are described as MBs, but it looks like one has a GPW front cross member. They are located on Orcas Island, which requires taking the ferry. A truck plus a two-vehicle trailer will probably require a $325 ferry ticket (truck 15′ + trailer 30′), if I am reading the fare schedule correctly.

“Two 1943 Willys MB Jeeps FOR SALE
Selling two vehicles together – $7,000/Both OBO
We purchased these in 2010 from a Military Surplus outfit in the Grants Pass, Oregon area. We tinkered on them over the years, both have run and were driven in the past on our land. Not currently running. These are two separate restoration projects. I have the original paperwork from the military surplus seller including the title for the camo one; the blue one is untitled. The old license plates on the vehicles were there at the time of our purchase. We never transferred title to our name. For purchase, I will provide two Bills of Sale plus title for the camo one and statement of fact about the blue one. You can apply for title for the blue jeep and get a VIN assigned as outlined by WA State DMV for vehicle without title.
Camo painted jeep: 1943 Willys MB – title in hand. This jeep clearly spent time in Europe and likely remained in post war service in Germany. (It has some parts with labels written in Deutsch). This jeep is fully intact and mostly original. Key included. Seats all included and recovered. Spare tire mount and tire included. Bimini frame included (no canvas). Jerrycan holders included and mounted. Frame intact. Surface rust throughout, and rust through hole on the mounting steps and adjoining side panel.
Blue painted jeep: untitled, estimated to be similar vintage (same grill style) as the camo MB so early 1940s. Key included. Appears to be modified: i.e no bench seat, and gas tank is fabricated and located at the rear (where a bench seat would have been). Frame intact, surface rust throughout, no holes.

We Have Water!

• CATEGORIES: News This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

After a week+ with our well out of commission we once again have well water. The culprit was our well pump, which had lost its bearing. Reassembly of the well pump took an extra day as our pump is a 3HP 40GPM pump, which took extra time to find. I also learned our that our water table appears to start about 6′ below the surface and our well is sits at about 110′.

I am not all that familiar with well-setups, but the “George’s”, our well guys were both named George, were impressed, with one telling me that he now wants to set up his well water system with a cistern and secondary pump so he can keep the water pressure high (when the irrigation is running our water pressure is still strong for showers, etc).

Meanwhile, I got more wiring done on the FC. I also built the bracket to hold the e-brake line and the fuel pump, which is now mounted closer to the tank.

Finally, I snagged a few new brochures off eBay, so I will share those in the next week or so. I should have some updates Friday morning.
