Willys-Overland Tire Sidewall and Radiator Flush on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features

Maury spotted these items. The 1/4 jeep looks almost like a high-hood, but given a Jeepster is shown, I’m guess it is actually a 2A or 3A. I would guess these are 1949 or 1950 containers.

Flatfender Body Vancouver, WA $1200

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts, Parts

This mostly appears to be a 2A body, but it also has a well for an MB/GPW style tank and it lacks a fuel inlet hole on the driver’s side. It may actually be a reproduction body of some kind.

https://portland.craigslist.org/clk/pts/d/vancouver-1946-or-newer-old-jeep-body/7111957006.html

“About 1946 or 47 Willys JEEP body. Windshield, the Tub with tool box under passenger seat, Tail Gate, Hood, war 2 Grill. There is a little rust that on tail gate that is repairable. It has been inside my heated shop for over 3 years. I sold the 2 flat finders to a another person 3 years ago. You will have to come and see it to be-leave it. Please call, come and see, it should be listed for $2000.00 but I just wont it gone so $1200.00 should by a good number.”

“J” Cap Hubcaps Spokane, WA $120

• CATEGORIES: Features

Did we ever determine the origin of these hubcaps? A similar use of the “J” logo was used on Cutlas hubcaps, but the hubcap was much more plain and the lettering was black, not red. A similar set was for sale in Florida back in 2017. I checked the Brian Chuchua and Conferr catalogs, but there’s sign of them in there.

This is an odd one.

“1948 Willy’s Jeep RatRod truck. A lot of fabrication went into it. It is a Rat Rod. (If you don’t know what a RatRod is then this is not for you).The drivetrain started out as a 2003 Ford Ranger Edge. V6 Automatic, AC, Heat,PS,PB, CC, Touch Screen stereo. New Glass, Lowered 4/5 inches. Runs and drives good. Would be a good Dailey driver or just for fun on the weekends. I’m not really looking to get rid of it but always looking for something else to play with. Up for trades. I have original paperwork from 40+years ago on this truck and a clear TN title in my name for the truck and the one for the original Ranger Frame. What’s for trade?”

VW w/ Jeep Grille Princeton, KY $7000

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

UPDATE: Price bumped to $7000. I’ve tried to locate another example of this kit car, but couldn’t. Some of these kit cars only sold a handful of products. For example, only four models of the VWeep (which doesn’t look much like a jeep) were produced. 

(12/20/2019) Something different with a little jeep DNA.

The bolt pattern is 5×5 1/2 and will fit big pattern jeeps and early Ford trucks from about 1972 and earlier.

1962 CJ-3B w/Monroe Lift Harrisonburg, VA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

(03/25/2020) Has a solid looking Kelly hardtop and a Monroe Lift.

“Selling for a friend: 62 or 63(old title its a bit confusing) Tallhood Willys, with a 283 Chevrolet V8, JC Whitney bell housing adapter, half cab and three point hitch system. Comes with a snowblade. It does have rust, but it’s not a basket case. Hasn’t run in years, but it turned over briefly before the starter shat its pants. I might look about getting it running this weekend. Clean title. Lowballers need not apply, the lift system alone is worth at least grand by itself, and it ain’t eating nothing just sitting there. I ain’t looking to play twenty questions with this thing via messenger, if you’re interested, hit me up, and come look at it, maybe we can work out a deal.”
