“1946 Willy’s project. We bought this as a project for my daughter, but we decided to go with a CJ instead. I have a ton of parts, along with another frame, but way too many to list. Vehicle was abandoned by the previous owner. I purchased it from the property owner the vehicle was abandoned on. Have not had time to apply for a title, but I was told by the Sheriff that it will not be hard to get.”

I bought a 46″ heavy duty Husky tool chest a few days ago. That innocent purchase led to the complete rearrangement of my mother-in-laws garage, but out of the deal she asked that I combine her tools with mine (another sign that she knows she doesn’t have too long left). So, yesterday I drove to my parents to get a set of industrial shelving, but then detoured to Moses Lake … so, I was too busy playing to do updates for this morning. Updates will resume Sunday.

Next week I’m breaking my quarantine and heading down to visit my kids in Salt Lake. My oldest just bought his first house, so I’m bringing him a variety of tools. So, updates may be sparse over Labor Day Weekend.

Have a good weekend!

1945 MB Morton Grove, IL **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $19,500.

Peter’s got this MB for sale.

“Original, rebuilt Willys MB 1945 in very good condition, drives very well. New electric harness wire is 6 volt. New upholstery, including Summer top, five new tires, new muffler. Complete original WWII BC 620 radio. The history of this car is unknown, but most probably it was prepared for invasion in Europe or Africa: Jerry can is made in America in 1945 but has a European neck (this unique Jerry can’s photo was in the LIVE magazine illustrating the invasion of American troops in Normandy). Also, one combat rim is wider than the standard by 1 inch. It could have been a prototype adapted to ride on the sands in WW2.”

Late 1940s Willys-Overland Dealer Ad

• CATEGORIES: News

Joel shared this late 1940s ad from the Maine Willys Sales Company of Augusta, Maine. Note the Willys Sign in the background with the early “J” logo. It appears that Maine’s State Foresty Department was an early enthusiast of the new jeep trucks. I was unable to locate the this ad using newspapers.com, so cannot date it at this time.

1959 Wagon Government Camp, OR $18,500

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons

UPDATE: Price dropped to $15,900.

(08/12/2016) Dan spotted this nice wagon out of Oregon.

“1959 Willys Jeep Wagon, 4WD, Everyday Driver, Original Drive Train, Warn Overdrive, Warn Automatic Hubs. I bought the Vehicle in 2000 in Vancouver, WA from it’s second owner. I restored/re-built it as an every-day driver in 2004. I’ve kept it in a garage since I restored it. The body, interior, engine, and drive train were done in local shops in the Portland Metro.
It comes with a few spare parts. I have a set of snow tires mounted on the same style rims that would be extra if you’re interested. The right front brake needs some TLC before you start driving it every day.
I’ve driven this fun wagon for 20 years, but now I’m looking for something new and different.”
