1949 “Swiss Army” CJ Fayetteville, AR $17,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, MB

Listed as a 1949 CJ-2A Swiss Army Jeep and claimed to be “an original Swiss Army Willys Jeep”, this looks to me to be a refurbed CJ-3A with a reproduction MB body and, possibly, an MB engine. So, how ‘original’ it is isn’t clear.

It is true the Swiss Army used a wide range of jeeps, including MBs, CJ-2As, CJ-3As, M-38A1s, CJ-3Bs, CJ-5s, and Wagons (https://cj3b.info/Military/SwissArmy.html).

“I have a 1948 CJ2A with rear PTO. It’s all restored to original. The restoration was done roughly 15 years ago but looks like it was done less than that. This was all done recently as it sat for so long: New fuel pump, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, condenser, oil lines, fuel pump to carb line, carb was completely rebuilt, new master cylinder, bell and crank for the steering. I’m sure I’m missing a few things. Have new wheel cylinders but haven’t installed them. Comes with tire chains, a bucket of carbs (3-4) a crate of other parts and a hard cab that needs to be finished. Runs and drives. $18,500. Open to trades”

Cash no checks no cashier’s check

If it’s listed it still for sale

This is the factory cab not aftermarket Sears, JC Whitney, Acme

UPDATE: I’ve been asked if this is a Worman MFG cab ,from my understanding wormans were the first aluminum Willys Factory contracted. Please click link below for explanation on this cab

Like most steel aftermarket hard tops, the Willys halfcab was much too heavy to casually remove and re-install, so many of these impressive half cabs have been scrapped, making this a rare and very desirable hard top.

Busy Few Days

• CATEGORIES: Features

The Estate Sale: This past weekend’s estate sale kept us busy! Overall, it was success, but exhausting. Most importantly, we found homes for all kinds of stuff. Still, there are some dump runs and donation runs in our future, but not nearly as much as it could have been.

We have not yet sold the motorhome (my mother-in-law’s), though there was plenty of interest at the estate sale. We haven’t used it in a year and a half and don’t have plans for it, so we figured we’d sell it. We paid off the loan, so we own it free and clear.

2022-06-13-motorhome

2014 Sun Seeker 32800 miles, winter package, built on an E450 Ford Chassis. It runs great, has lots of storage and sleeps six. It has auto-leveling, a slide out, two awnings, gas/electric fridge, and more. NADA average retail is $63,300. We are priced at $65,000.

Perhaps the next best outcome of the event was meeting neighbors who had known the builder of our place. Many had known “Merl”, some fondly and some less so, as he was “a character”. His wife must have been a patient woman!

Miraculously, the pouring rain stopped on Saturday morning at 4am, giving us a little time to remove tarps and pop-up tents. The crowds were even and steady, likely a result of it being graduation weekend (we didn’t know that). The rain stayed away until Sunday around 3pm, when it began pouring to the point of causing some flooding in places across southeastern Washington.

As for Mom’s place:

2022-06-14-final-garage-view-renton

Last pic from Mom’s place … the garage where several jeeps were built and rebuilt.

On Tuesday, we drove to mom’s place, probably for the last time, so it was a little bitter-sweet. After nearly 60 years in family hands, the property has sold. We met the buyers, who signed the papers Tuesday morning. They were a nice couple who are excited to be get the place, as it is unique.  I walked them through the property, sharing stories and pointing out things they should know, which reminded me just how much work the place needs. But, that’s no longer my problem (thankfully).

The DJ-3A: After we get the shop cleared of the remain estate items, I will install Patterson’s new fuel pump, double check a few things, then he’ll be ready for sale.
