1942 MB Montrose, CA $20,000


UPDATE: What I thought was a custom parking brake on the dash is actually a gun mount (Thanks Andy).

The serial number is listed as #GPA8424, which is strange given it does not look like a GPA nor a GPW. However, the dash plate indicates the serial number is 198360, which puts it as a very late 1942 MB.







“A mountain of a man sat to my left, a cheerful grin spread across his face and both of his ‘bear paws’ gripped the steering wheel as we drove though a misty beach town. Bundled up from head to toe and wrapped in 1000 blankets, my siblings and I loved this special time with our Grandpa.

1959 FC-150 Battle Creek, MI $1500

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

Brian shared this project.

“I have a Jeep FC150 that’s mostly in pieces that I’m interested in selling. I bought it as a roller and started stripping it down last fall. I would say the truck is about 75% complete. I have a title and vin plate for the cab that’s pretty beat up but still readable. I have the original t90 and Dana 18, and planned to put a 4.3 in it. The bed that came with the truck was for a 170 I believe. Frame was chemically stripped. I have all the glass but the windshield has a crack in it. I’d like $1500 obo for the fc and would be willing to negotiate a deal to”

T-96C w/ Stick Shift Golden, CO $250

• CATEGORIES: Parts, Transmissions

This is the first example of a stick shift T-96. I thought, and my research up until now suggested, that this was a column shift tranny. (given the f-head, I doubt this tranny was original to the truck)

“Willys Jeep T-96 1C 2wd 3spd transmission. From a ’46 – ’47 Willys 2wd pickup with an F-head engine.  Was running and driving when removed.”

1946 VEC? CJ-2A Las Vegas, NV $23,800


Looks to be #21389. Has updates.

“Known as a rare “early” model, this particular civilian Jeep has the military tool indents on the driver’s side as Willys was making a running change from the military model to the civilian model. Later in that year those tool indents were deleted. Many new parts, too many too list. Jeep was kept mostly stock. This vehicle is a real head-turner and you will get smiles everywhere you go.”

Carson’s “CarCraft” Hardtop

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

UPDATE: This post started out as a post about Koenig hardtops, but that lead to updates on the Car Craft and Blue Star hardtops. I should have the Koenig post done for Saturday morning.

This updated post provides more info on the CARCRAFT hardtop. An early Special Equipment catalog contained two different versions of the Carson Machine & Supply Company’s Car Craft brochure. I’ve added a third brochure at the bottom which I’d found off of eBay years ago. Here are two real-world examples: one jeep and another jeep.

This brochure was published back in 2017. It features a CJ-2A and does not have the stylized CARCRAFT branding. Instead, it shows a plain “Car Craft” brand with a space added.

1948-equipbook-carson-carcraft-hardtops1 1948-equipbook-carson-carcraft-hardtops2

This is the first time I’ve published this brochure. It includes the new CARCRAFT branding and used a CJ-3A jeep:

This brochure was available on eBay in 2013.  It appears to be the company’s signature brochure for the hardtop. I haven’t tracked down another copy:

Blue Star Aluminum Tops

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

Rooney77’s Blue Star Top for sale

UPDATE: This post from 2014 has been updated with additional brochure examples. See all the Blue Star hardtops documented thus far:

(From 2014) This Blue Star aluminum top was built by the Blue Manufacturing Company, founded in Kansas by Max Blue circa 1946. ‘Blue Star’ was the brand name used on several products he produced.  There’s some conflicting information, but it appears In 1946 Blue Manufacturing was building aluminum airline parts. About that time, as a hobby, Max began building aluminum boats. He also tried manufacturing and selling jeep hard tops.

Demand was so great for the boats that in 1948 he leased space and built boats full-time. Meanwhile, he either sold or abandoned the jeep top business altogether. Given only a few Blue Star tops have surfaced over the last few years, I imagine he didn’t sell too many of them.

However, Max was able to sell boats. By 1953 the company was building 1,000 boats a year. In July of 1953 he moved the company from Goddard, Kansas, to Miami, Oklahoma. There are various articles into 1960 that talk about the Blue Manufacturing Company. However, the company appears to have ceased boat production in 1964.

This brochure featuring a CJ-2A is the earliest example I have of this top. It was part of an early industrial equipment book.


Here’s another example, this time with a CJ-3A:


Here’s an ad that was featured on eBay.


Here’s an example of the logo badge:
