“1. 1960 wide track 134 Fhead motor. t90 3 speed transmission. PTO on the back. dana 18 transfer case dana 44 front and rear axles in 5.38 gears. i bought this as a complete truck. i have a title for this one. i took it apart to restore it. project lost steam. the rear counterweight is there.
when i got it home, i put a brand new Toyota starter on it, poured some gas down the carb, hot wired it, and the engine fired right up and purrs like a kitten. this was after cleaning the points, obviously as it sat for 20 years. i was going to restore this into my dream truck, but i dont have the patience for this long term project.
to update the mechanical s, i bought, but haven’t installed:
*new clutch kit
*new electronic distributor to get rid of the old points and condensers
*new coil
* new wilwood brake MC, and brake brackets (converted to disk brakes).
*new radiator
*new lots of stuff…..just cant think of it all at the moment. the body is rough, but its all there.
2. 1958 jeep FC150. this is the narrow track version, closer to a CJ. same motor/tranny as above. i bought this one for parts for my restore, but got sick of working on the ’60 and got this one driving, just to say i drove an FC. body is a little better than than the red one. *NO TITLE FOR THIS ONE*

“If this is posted, yes it’s still available. I will no longer respond to the 30-40 people per day asking that question.

Our business is restoring WWII and classic Jeeps. We simply have too many projects, so we’re letting this one go to free up some space. Does NOT run. NEEDS restoration. HAS title. PROJECT Jeep”

Vintage Dealer Photo from Galax, Virginia

Chris spotted this Jeep dealer photo taken in Galax, Virginia, on a Carroll County Facebook page. If you look carefully, you’ll see the round ‘Service’ Jeep sign (painted?) on the building with an extra large “P”.

There’s still a Mink Motor Sales company that sells used cars. I can’t tell if this venture is the same location as shown in in the pic below.

“I have owned this 1951 Willys CJ3A since 1979. So many great memories made with this jeep and with a little TLC another generation can experience the Willys vibe. I took it apart for a frame up restore in 1981 but never got around to putting it back together (military, marriage, kids). It has the original T90 transmission with a Novak adapter bolted to a Buick Dauntless 225 V-6 (has about 60K miles on engine). Frame is solid with new leaf hangers and bushings. The tub, fenders, hood, tailgate, grill and windshield frame are in excellent shape and were sand blasted and coated with a heavy 3M primer before it was stored. This jeep has been barn stored for the past 36 years. Just needs to be reassembled and painted. Includes original backseat and added roll bar.”

2020 FC-Round Up Cancelled

• CATEGORIES: News

Jesse and Andrea made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s FC Round Up due to COVID-19. I believe it the right decision, not because I feared becoming ill, but because I have two health-compromised living with me, so I must be vigilant about not bringing it home. Because iof that, I was about to contact them and explain that I could not attend, which was especially hard because I was going to attend with my son.
