WANTED: Looking for Jeep near West Point, CA

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1, wanted

This person is hoping to locate an M-38A1 his grandparents owned in the Gold Country area of California. It had black plates # MBG-426. No pics provided.

“My grandparents had an M38A1 Jeep on their land on Bald Mountain Road outside West Point and Bummerville. When they passed away, the Jeep was sold off at some point by a relative before the estate could be settled or the vehicle title found.

It’s a 1956 model (rounded front fenders), completely brown and white rusted paint, with an expired CA plate MBG-426.

The last I saw of this Jeep, it was on a neighbor’s tract of land also on Bald Mountain Road (east of where the road loses the centerline and fog stripes, but before Hunter Creek and where the asphalt ends).

While the Jeep was in rough, barely driveable shape at the time it was disposed of, I’ve been interested in finding it for a restoration project. It was the 4×4 my grandparents used to teach me how to drive, and has some sentimental value.

What I’d like is for anyone who knows about this Jeep, and can open a dialogue with the current possessor, to get in touch with me by email. If it makes financial sense to purchase the vehicle back given it’s condition and missing title, I’d be willing to offer a small finder’s fee.

If it’s not worth the trouble to buy back, I’d at least like to know it’s found a good home.”

CJ-2A Rock Springs, WY (and elsewhere) $3600 … Scam!


UPDATE: Definitely a scam. This jeep ad has been spotted in several locations now. A reader named Sam took the plunge and emailed the seller. After several rounds of emails, Sam concluded there was no jeep.

Possible scam as the price seems too good. Seller mentions nothing about the jeep.

Any Seattle Area Stratton Hydraulic Lifts?


Anyone in the Seattle area have a Stratton Hydraulic Lift? A man named Ernie lives in the Seattle area (don’t know where just yet) and it was his family’s Cleveland, Ohio, machine shop that built the Stratton Lifts. We are hoping that if he sees one in person that it will jog his memory for some stories about them.

Email Barry Thomas at or me at if you know of anyone.

You can read more about Ernie and his Machine shop here:

The machine shop is still in business and, if there is enough interest, they may even be willing to manufacture some parts.

“Vintage 1957 Revell Radio Jeep & Trailer Two Sided Dealer Store Display Poster – from a Revell Co. Employee Collection. Has some wear & a fold line. From a smoke free home. Be sure to see my other listings for some other items from this collection.

History of this item: I recently purchased a collection of model related items from a local auction house. They would only tell me that the original owner was a former Revell employee, unfortunately the auction company would not disclose any names or information about the consignor of the collection. The majority of this collection is related to the 1950s Revell models, but there are some items from many other companies. I have been advised by several collectors that this person was most likely a Revell Co. Representative and he would have travelled to Toy Fairs & Industry Trade Shows of the time, where he would have promoted Revell Products and also acquired advertisements from other companies. Please do not contact me about purchasing any items from this collection, they will be listed for auction as I have the time.”

“Great running little CJ flat fender Jeep. Driveable now but will require some final tinkering to put it back on the road – electrical for lights, blinks, gauges, brakes bled, decent seats and the tires are good but checked. Optima battery pictured NOT included with the sale. Has spent some time on the Coast so a little blistering here and there on the body but not terrible. 4 point roll cage included with the sale.

“Bought this a few months ago it ran and drove. It is an absolute blast to drive, like a cross between a tractor and a gokart… I took it around the neighborhood and to the grocery store a few times down the street, then started to prep to remove the tub to fix some rust on the floor panels. There are kits sold online that you just weld in place to make it a fairly siple repair.

I didn’t get very far, removed some body bolts, undid the dash wiring (all clearly labeled for easy re-assembly) You could put it all bag together and just drive it as is without issue, my plan was a full restoration but quickly realizing I do not have the time.
