1946 VEC CJ-2A Bangor, PA $800

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: .

The VEC body is rough, but this does have column shift parts and a supersonic head.

“1946 Willys Jeep 4×4, incomplete, no paperwork, no title, I mistakenly paid 1500 for this and now willing to lick my wounds after a dip in lake stupid. I was told this is a 1946 as it is a 3 speed on the column, and has the two sticks on the transmission.
Lets be clear, I do not need a lesson on values, on what it takes to re-do a Willys, to be honest I don’t need anymore lessons on anything.
What you see is what you get, there is no secret stash of New Old Stock parts that I am squirreling away.
We almost had it running, lost spark and interest when the rotor fell apart, engine block is good, turns over no problem, and is very complete, was told early block as it has an “oval pad” behind the oil filler.
Has locking hubs, and a pretty decent frame, not trying to be rude in my description, oh well sorry my wife doesn’t like me either, so ill get over it. Its like a 1947 1948, and maybe a 1949
Happy to answer any questions that I have not covered, and this is located in BANGOR PENNSYLVANIA 18013
if that’s not in your Gas Monkey wheel house to get to that’s ok too.
God Bless, and have a wonderful day.”

CJ-2A Repro Body Carlisle, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts, Parts

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

This deal should work for someone. A couple extra holes provides ventilation, lol.

“New reproduction Willy’s CJ-2A body tub. The previous owner attempted to mount the tub onto a CJ-3A frame and therefore drilled and cut holes in the floorpans / dash to try and make everything work. (CJ3A frame is longer than a CJ2A) Go check the price of a new reproduction body tub (plus what it costs to ship) and then come buy mine. $1500 obo. Other Willys parts available, specifically early CJ’s stuff.”

FC Forward Forum Temporarily Down?

• CATEGORIES: News

Will alerted me that the FC Forward Forum is temporarily down. It was taken down for a supposed violation of the TOS, though I’d be surprised if the forum violated the TOS. There seems to be a way to contact the host and appeal this issue. Anyone know who the administrator(s) were?

Early 1950s Photo of Centralia, WA, Willys Dealer on ebay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

UPDATE: As Mark notes, and I missed, the truck pictured is a 1954 at the earliest, so the pic must have been taken after that.

This is likely a reprint, but it’s still a neat photo. It also show the early “J” logo sign. I’m not a Packard expert, but I’d say based on the grille on the car in the window of the auto shop that this photo must have been taken circa 1954-56.

Blaine spotted a discussion at the Ford-Trucks.com forum on Auxiliary transmissions that included the rare Warn Auxiliary Overdrive. A user named “38 Coupe” shared a bunch of smaller Auxiliary transmission documents that included a Parts and Instruction manual for the Warn AO. So, here it is, along with some photos of a Warn unit that was for sale in April of 2015.

Jeepster Door Mechanical Parts

• CATEGORIES: Features, Jeepster

 UPDATE: In his search for Jeepster door mechanicals, George learned that the parts used in a 1952 Dodge Truck were nearly identical to the Jeepster, just shorter. However, since he was able to eventually source a set of Jeepster doors, he didn’t try out this possibility. So, I thought in case someone else needed these parts that I’d let folks know that NOS parts are available for the Dodge Truck.

“A restorer messaged with a picture of one mech from the Jeepster and one from a 1952 Dodge truck this afternoon. They were identical except for the length of the connector between inside/outside handles. They can be found for $90 nos.”

jeepster-dodge-door-mechanism-comparison-lores

=======================

Original Post: George is nearly done with a 1949 Jeepster restoration, but needs to locate the mechanical parts for both doors. If you think you have the parts he needs, contact him at gjasek @ yahoo.com (remove spaces around the @).

And, yes, he has looked for the parts at the Jeepsterman, WO Jeepster club, and other places on the web, but with no luck so far.
