1962 CJ-3B w/Monroe Lift Harrisonburg, VA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

(03/25/2020) Has a solid looking Kelly hardtop and a Monroe Lift.

“Selling for a friend: 62 or 63(old title its a bit confusing) Tallhood Willys, with a 283 Chevrolet V8, JC Whitney bell housing adapter, half cab and three point hitch system. Comes with a snowblade. It does have rust, but it’s not a basket case. Hasn’t run in years, but it turned over briefly before the starter shat its pants. I might look about getting it running this weekend. Clean title. Lowballers need not apply, the lift system alone is worth at least grand by itself, and it ain’t eating nothing just sitting there. I ain’t looking to play twenty questions with this thing via messenger, if you’re interested, hit me up, and come look at it, maybe we can work out a deal.”

Robin noticed that this doesn’t have a battery box; yet it does have all the other characteristics of an M-38A1 body (and does not have the CJ-5 body branding). Anyone have any thoughts as to why?

Kayline Ski Rack and Sunliner Top Brochures

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

These brochures from the mid-1970s highlight the Ski/Luggage racks offered by Kayline. The top brochure also shows Kayline’s ‘Sunliner’ soft top, which features windows on the top’s roof to let in light and improve visibility.

Sta-Bar Kit Brochures

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE:  This 2012 post has been updated to reflect the existence of two different Sta-Bar Kits.

Two different manufactures (were there any others?) offered stabilizing kits that were meant to reduce some of the horizontal shifting that can occur when using a rear lift.

Here’s a detail look at a Monroe 3pt Hitch without a stabilizer hit.

monore-lift-part-by-part-lores

The Roper Manufacturing Company out of Zanesville, Ohio, manufactured a set of bars that pivoted on special vertical plates attached to the ends of the PTO bar and attached to the lower links as highlighted below:

monroe-3pt-hitch-w-roper-stabalizer

Here’s the Roper Sta-Bar Kit brochure:

1955-roper-sta-bar-kit-brochure1-lores 1955-roper-sta-bar-kit-brochure2-lores

The Green Manufacturing Company’s Green Star-Bar Kit has bars that appear to attach to the outside of the lower links in a similar manner to the Roper kit. I can’t tell how the kit attaches to the PTO bar or how that might differ from the Roper setup. The pricing shows it was slightly less expensive than the Roper Sta-Bar Kit.

WWII Photo with Woman, Soldiers, Jeep and Camera

Givnethe camera, his *might* be a press photo crew of some sort? The square appearing gas tank suggests this might be an early MB. For some reason, the seller thinks this photo is a “Original 1910’s WWI Photo”, which  would indeed be a rare photo, lol.

It’s come time for me to part with my 1962 FC-150 WideTrack. No specific reason, it’s just where I am right now. I’ve driven it ~18 miles in the last 3 years. Runs great and the electric fuel pump is a plus. It’s located in NE Pennsylvania. I can confidently say, you won’t be disappointed. Just to be up front, I don’t have to sell it, I just don’t have the passion anymore and I have no doubt there are others on here that do. Here’s the breakdown if you are interested. I also have pictures during the build if you are seriously interested. I figured I’d post it here first. Thanks in advance for your consideration.

1964? CJ-3B Coatesville, PA $7000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $7000.

Ranger Bob suggests this could have been a 1963 that could have been on the production line when things switched the 1964 model (see comments).

Though listed as a 1964, I imagine it is earlier (maybe 1963) given the Willys stampings. It could use some body work and paint. Still, it’s hard to find a 1960’s 3B for sale.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1417200568485274/

“Putting my 1964 Willys CJ3B up for sale. I’ve had a lot of work done to it in the last few weeks as you can see from the photos. These are not getting easier to find and to have one that has a hardtop and is in good condition with all original drivetrain and low miles is nearly impossible, especially on the east coast. I will NOT respond to any pre-made Facebook messenger messages. May be interested in trades depending on what you have. Please don’t waste my time. Price is $7,500 obo”

Just a Few Posts for Wednesday

• CATEGORIES: Features

Only a few posts for Wednesday. I’ve begun re-organizing some of our older trips (Southwest Spring FC Roundup 2013 trip for example) to make navigating the pages easier. It turned out to be much more work than I’d planned, as I hadn’t gotten the hang yet of traveling and documenting a trip. My goal is to get them all organized in one section of the site … So, just a few updates for today.

If you want to see (or re-see) our 2013 Southwest trip, here it is:

“A splendid advertising promotion for a Factory-funded contest between dealers to sell Kaiser Jeep products. 7 1/4″ x 7 1/2″, slick illustrated paper with a very thin record of the same size, typical of a 45-RPM record – but in this case meant to be played at 33 1/3-RPM.

Jeep Sales Circus contest – undated;
Prepared under the Kaiser Jeep name – inaugurated 1963;
Kaiser Jeep address uses the Postal Code (Toledo 1, Ohio) which was discontinued in 1963 with the inauguration of Zip Codes;
Dealers could win points with each Jeep sale or with Jeep parts, Accessories sales;
No discussion about what you’d win;
Kaiser sponsorship of The Greatest Show on Earth” TV program – ABC-TV – the series ran for one year, 1963-1964.
A splendid and very uncommon sales promotion. Note – a glued strip attached the record to the brochure – directions called for the cover to be folded under the record and the back cover, and played on your record player in that format – the brochure and the record all show the center hole drill. This record was detached from the glued strip.”

1950 Wagon and Jeepster Ad

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

This April 30, 1950, ad in the Evening Star is another example of Willys-Overland seemingly targeting the same demographic for both vehicles. And that seems to be a reasonable approach. I haven’t investigated how often the company did this in their advertising yet.
