1967 Gladiator J3000 Pine Plains, NY $2000

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Tremaine’s friend is selling this. I’m not very familiar on the values of these.

“1967 Jeep Gladiator J3000 pickup with factory 327 Rambler motor and 4spd transmission. Ran when parked a few years ago. Don’t have time or space for this one, so time to let it go. Has typical J truck rust, but better than most in the northeast. Comes with extra fenders, doors, hood, seats and other parts. I purchased it out of CT so no title, but I’ll be happy to fill out paperwork to get a registration for it. Consider full/partial trades for metal brake, bigger air compressor, 4 or 5′ brush hog, mechanics toolbox, york rake, equipment or car trailers. Email with any questions.”

1946 CJ-2A/Suzuki Alton, IL $5400

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Other 4x4s

UPDATE: Price dropped to $5400.

(05/08/2020) Has Suzuki Samarai parts.

“1946 Military Willys CJ2A has a lot invested into it. I have really enjoyed it but it’s time to part ways. It needs some work. Pm for more details it won’t let me type anymore. Needs timing and has exposed wires. I didn’t do the build but you can tell by looking what it’s got! It’s an all custom build and one of a kind. It’s not a Willy’s title as that was lost a long time ago. So what it has is a Clean Suzuki samurai title from the frame, engine, and transmission. It’s powered by a rebuilt fuel injected samurai motor and transmission which is a 1.6L 4 speed manual transmission with 4hi and 4L. It has brand new spark plugs, plug wires, distributor motor, Distributor cap, and rotor. 5.13 gears with a rear E-locker that is geared to be on all of the time, Toyota Land Cruiser FJ60 front and rear axles, FJ60 leaf springs, and FJ60 front manual center locking hubs. Make offer. No low ballers please.”

1953 CJ-3A Chassis(?) Orangevale, CA $1000


Seller is keeping the body and VIN and selling the rest (mostly sounds like the power train and chassis).

“I’m selling everything but the cab/tub and everything in it. I will be keeping the VIN and title. May also keep the radiator. I’d like to sell the frame, rolling on axles with the engine, transmission, and transfer case as one complete unit. It’s a 1953 CJ3A with a V6 swap. Not sure if it’s an odd fire or not. I drove it to where it’s been parked for about a year. I believe the master cylinder needs to be replaced. I’ll try to get it running for a serious buyer before I remove what I’m keeping. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. $1000 OBO”

Pre-jeep Jeeping: Swing Dancing and Theft

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

These two pre-1940 news items highlight how “jeep” and “jeeping” already had definitions prior to the launch of Bantam’s prototype.

In 1937, this article on “Jeeping” as a swing dance, as testified in court by Detective Fred V. Boye, was widely distributed among newspapers. I have been unable to isolate exactly what moves define the “jeeping swing dance”. This example article comes from the July 28, 1937, issue of the Park City Daily News out of Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Clipping from The Park City Daily News -

Two years later, in 1939, a couple of Washington State vagrants (no, they aren’t relatives of mine) got caught “jeeping” pin ball machines using a “jeep”. A woman, along for the ride, even had a marijuana cigarette! This article is from the November 29, 1939, issue of the Green Bay Press Gazette:

1993 The Total Performance Jeep Engine Book

• CATEGORIES: Documents, Features

I thought I would win this auction, but I didn’t bid quite high enough. It looks like an interesting book. The guy who sold it on eBay said he used it to build a “bullet proof” AMC 360 engine. This book was printed in 1993.
