“I have Two Willys JEEPSTER projects both are 1950. I have enough parts to build both vehicles. These are two door four seat convertibles (Phaeton) style vehicles. These are very nice custom builder projects with pallets of spare parts. One body is on a highly modified original frame with four wheel independent suspension and four wheel disk brakes. The other body does not include a frame and can easily be fit to a Toyota Four Runner chassis or something similar. A zero time Mercedes-Benz 300 Turbo diesel engine and transmission are available at an extra cost.”

CJ-2A Tub Conifer, CO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Body Parts, Parts

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $525.

Seems in pretty good shape.

“This is a CJ2A tub in overall very decent, solid condition. The previous owner had it sandblasted and started replacing rusted panels and supports…then let it sit outside for some time. The rust you see is mainly surface rust from sitting. The tool box has already been removed (and is gone), so this would be an ideal tub to stretch for a rock crawler project. Rear floor and wheel wells are in very good condition. The dash has not been all cut-up for extra gauges, radio, speakers, etc.”

Philadelphia’s Road Patrol Service

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine, Old Images

This article in the June 28, 1948, issue of Newsweek covers how the Keystone Automobile Club’s three jeeps were transformed into mobile video units for the 1948 Republican and Democratic Conventions that were being held in Philadelphia.

Six months earlier in January, the same jeeps had been setup with radios to help manage road patrol issues (multiple news articles mentioned this), so adding television service expanded, albeit temporarily, the capabilities of the jeeps.

1972 The Salzburg Connection Jeep Scene

• CATEGORIES: Features
salzburg-connection-jeep

Screen shot from The Salzburg Connection.

Bill spotted a scene with a jeep in the 1972 movie The Salzburg Connection (it might appear other places, as I didn’t have a chance to watch it). You can see the jeep scene between 41:45 and 42:35. It looks to be an MB.

By the end of the scene, the driver is deliriously (Psychotically?) happy. Maybe he was just really happy to be driving a jeep?

Here’s a photo that was posted to the IMCDB site:

Info we have is this M38 Army Jeep was restored about 30 yrs ago & was last registered for street use in 1992. Previous owner bought in 1993 to use as a hunting Jeep & was not registered for legal use on the road since that date. Was reported to be running when parked. We would recommend a full servicing @ least or a rebuild to get it back on the road.

Bill spotted this project FJ-40. Seems a reasonable price based on others we’ve seen.

“For sale is a 1972 Toyota Landcruiser. Me and my dad picked this up as a winter project but we’re realizing we just don’t have the bandwidth to tackle a project of this magnitude at this point in time.

It’s a 3.9 liter inline 6 motor with a 3 on-the-tree manual transmission. Clean Mass title ready to be signed over.

The motor turns over and wants to fire up but it doesn’t have spark. We’ve bought new points, a new coil, and a new condenser ready to be installed which should solve the spark issue. Comes with vinyl doors, diamond plate tailgate, and bench seat.

Any part you could need for this is readily available online. Cruiser Solutions up in New Hampshire can do any motor or body work needed.”

FC-150 Bed West Point, NE $500

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677, Parts

UPDATE: Now on Facebook. 

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/975280539542119/

I’m sure some FC-150 owner could use this bed.

fc150-bed-omaha-ne1 fc150-bed-omaha-ne3 fc150-bed-omaha-ne2

“I bought this FC bed out in western Nebraska with the intent f using it behind a cj10 cab.
That project changed hands and directions several times, and now I have an FC bed with no home for it.

I do consider chopping it to make it a different size for some other Jeep based pickup project.

But if someone needs it for an actual FC, that would be best.

It’s not pristine, so modifying it wouldn’t be a huge sin. But it’s solid enough that a real enthusiast might want or need it. Not many folks can say they’ve ever owned any forward control Jeep parts at all, so maybe you want it for bragging rights or to build a trailer for your flatfender.

I paid 500 several years ago, so I guess we can start there. Just my luck it’ll be worth 3000 and I still let it go for 500…”
