“1949 Willys Jeep halfway through restoration. Only driven 95 miles. It clearly needs body work but it drives. We rebuilt the engine, installed new brakes, and a new fuel line in 2019. It might have 25 miles since then. I haven’t had time to mess with it so the battery is dead. It needs either a trickle charge, new battery, or just to be trailered. My dad has the title.

” have owned this jeep since late 2013. It’s been garage kept. When I got it it had a blown f134 motor installed and sat until 2020 when I installed an other motor in. I found the t90 to be bad and had installed a running working t84 from a military mb. It’s running driving and braking. I did have a Holley 1904 carb on and installed a wanna be version. I seems to a little lean when it warms up. So needs to have vacuum lines looked at and PVC valve hooked up. I will be taking front windshield for my gpw. And I can provide a very rough 43 windshield but frame is good. It does not have any registration as it drove around my ranch with no intention of being on road. It has no data plates or license on frame or tub. Will come with the soft top as I really want to keep for my 43, but if the price is low for pick up I will remove top and all mounting hardware. Has no title or pink slip. Asking 3800 obo as a perfect ranch jeep or good start to someone’s rusted out tub.”

Free-Lock 27 Spline NOS Hubs with Documentation

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

Thanks to Chris for publishing this information on a Facebook post … It appears I will be buying from him a set of model F-28 Free-Lock hubs sold by Dualmatic. These NOS Free-Lock hubs included documentation stating that by December of 1973 Free-Lock had become a “Quality Division” of Dualmatic Products Company.

So, I believe this confirms that Free-Lock was acquired by Dualmatic, so now the questions are 1) when did this happen and 2) why didn’t Dualmatic use the branding sooner than circa 1970 (there was a gap between the end of Free-Lock in 1959 and the re-emergence of the brand circa late 1960s or early 1970s).

Dualmatic-nos-hubs-1973-12-6 Dualmatic-nos-hubs-1973-12-5 Dualmatic-nos-hubs-1973-12-4

This document suggests there were seven different models of Free-Lock hubs, which may explain why we have seen several different types of later-model Free-Lock hub styles. Given the emphasis on “A Quality Division”, this document *might* hint that Dualmatic was using the Free-Lock brand as a premium hub, perhaps hoping to clear more profit from them?


The fact that the top of the hub shows no branding suggests these instructions were intended to be distributed across multiple brands of Dualmatic-built hubs.


The date of the newspaper used to wrap the hubs is December 4, 1973:

Parmley Engineering’s Jeep Replacement Body

UPDATE: Zac shared a Parmley that he inherited along with a document that shows some pricing and states it was designed for the 81″ chassis.




Originally posted in 2013, with some pic updates over the years:

As many of you know, I am very curious about the fiberglass aftermarket bodies made for the jeep.  While I’ve seen most models for sale over the years, I have yet to run across Parmley Engineering’s fiberglass body, one of the more unique ones ever created.

After wrecking his CJ-5 in the early 1970s, Californian Tom Parmley, a machinist by trade, decided to build himself a better body for his still-good chassis.  He wanted the body to legally accommodate  wider tires, a dash box with more room, a hood that was lower, and other features.  So, he built and tested his dream body with great success.  Along the way, he received so much positive feedback that he created a kit so others could easily install a Parmley body on their CJ-5 Chassis.

So far, I have only located two resources that document this body.  One is the February 1974 issue of Four Wheeler Magazine, which featured a multi-page article about the new body.  Additionally, at least two issues of Four Wheeler Magazine also have ads for the Parmley body kit.  The other resource is a June 1975 Popular Mechanics article.  The Pop-Mech article also shows off the fiberglass top he invented (at least I assume it is fiberglass).

Here are a couple publicity photos taken by Tom Parley and published in the Feb 1974 issue of Four Wheeler:

1974-02-four-wheeler-parmely1-lores 1974-02-four-wheeler-parmely2-lores 1974-02-four-wheeler-parmely3-lores

This image shows the Parmley with a top and is from Popular Mechanics.  Note the top example sports Desert Dogs …


Here is a Parmley-bodied jeep on the cover of a the May 1978 issue of Four Wheeler Magazine.


This Parmley Engineering ad appeared on the back of January 1974 issue of Four Wheeler Magazine:


Bob Christy wasn’t sure what this vehicle was when he photographed it in 2008, but now we know.


This Parmely sold in 2015 and included a rare top:
