The J-Bird Fiberglass Hard Top

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: .

This ad took me by surprise. I’ve never heard of the J-Bird Fiberglass hard top made by Stanley Aviation. I wonder if there are any left anywhere? I’m guessing it was made in Colorado given this ad was in the Mile-Hi Jeep Club archives.

I was able to find some information about Stanley Aviation, but nothing related to Snaley Aviation and a jeep top.

WANTED: Info For Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

Rick Krueger is hoping to pull together some information for the folks at the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame. So, if you think you might have some information that would help Rick, email him at das.krueg @ gmail.com (remove the spaces around the @).

Rick wrote, “I have a line on Larry Hughes son Cameron. Dean Richards, Lonnie Richards grand father was a friend of my fathers and Gary Lowes. Dean and Gary played an important part in a boating accident I was in. The name Toy Hall has come up as Commander on a certificate I have found for and award to SNORE in the 70s. So any info from Lionel would be great. Also tracking down a ambulance buggy snore donated to the posse in the 70s. The ORMHOF seems interested so I would like to pull as much together as possible.”

MILE-HI Jeep Club History: Among the online collections at the ORMHOF are some great old photos and history from the Mile-Hi Jeep Club (How is there no PNW4WDA history/race-history here?): https://ormhof.org/mile-hi-collection

Here is one example of what is posted there. This photo shows the inaugural issue of the Mile HI Club’s Jeep Club News in December 1956.

Custom CJ-3B Build

• CATEGORIES: Builds, CJ-3B, Features

Robert Baxter posted this “CJ-3B” to Facebook the other day. He spotted it at a car show in El Segundo, California. The chassis is a deuce-and-a-half. It looks like the body is extra tall and stetted, which gives it an unusual look. Cool rig!

More Updates Later Sunday

• CATEGORIES: Features
2022-08-20-camper-sold

Our final view of the motorhome. We sold it on Saturday. We weren’t using it and it would only be declining in value, so we felt it was prudent to let it go. We will eventually buy something else, but unsure whether that will be a slide-in camper (which requires a new, beefier truck, which we need anyway), another motorhome (likely not), or a fifth wheel (maybe).

More updates later today …. It’s been a busy few days. We sold our motorhome to the folks that own the water system company that installed our filtering system (we hadn’t used it to camp in two years). So, as a part of the deal, we are getting a new water system for our house, a new drinking system for the kitchen, and a water filter system for the bunkhouse.

We have rented a bull for our heifers, but there isn’t a whole lot of action (a regular Ferdinand perhaps?), other than chewing down our grass, which has meant getting some hay to supplement their diets. Thankfully, our next-door neighbor just swathed his grass hay yesterday, so we’ll be buying up all his hay.

We are shopping for a squeeze chute and panels so we can build a corral.That way, we can just artificially inseminate them rather than host a bull, which is more expensive than insemination, something another neighbor of ours can do.

The side deck on the bunkhouse is near done, another stretch of triple digits looks behind us now.

Clean WA title in my name. These trucks are hard to find anymore in this condition. Odometer reflects 26,XXX miles, probably farm miles. Truck appears to be originally from Oregon and was purchased by previous owner at an estate sale out of Eugene with another FC. Regret selling but too many projects not enough time.”

I bought three of these and am restoring the second one, and have decided to sell this one off. As seen in the pictures, I have a very good, usable front clip for this Jeep, two T-90 transmissions a Dana 18 transfer case and a Dana 44 rear axle (an upgrade if you choose to use it).

The main tub, tailgate and seat frames will need to be replaced. I have purchased two repo Jeep bodies and they work out very well (happy to help you with this process if you decide to buy a new body). Or, you may find a used tub that could be used. As I mentioned, I have restored two of these and have lots of info and resources for parts, etc. I developed a four page spreadsheet just to document the hardware required and where it is used.
