1959 Wagon Longmont, CO $7500

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons

A lack of a battery suggests this isn’t running? Not sure how the seller concluded this was the Jeepster’s predecessor (I suppose, technically, wagons proceeded Jeepsters, but this wagon was definitely post Jeepster). This wagon includes a gov plate.

“1959 Jeep Willy’s 4×4 Delivery Panel Wagon. Great restoration project for a piece of Americana. This is the predecessor of the Jeepster.

“I’ve worked very hard on this project for four years, but I’m honestly getting burned out. I want to sell it to someone who is as interested as I was four years ago.

I have almost everything new needed to build the jeep minus the fenders… Some is already installed some is in boxes (bought it ahead of time) steering wheel, new clutch, even the broken star stencils with all the lettering. I also have a rear bench seat which is slightly rare.

Frame: new brake system, rotors, rebuild trans. Rebuild diffs, rebuild transfer case.

Body needs sheet metal work. The top is a lot nicer looking than underside. (I have new floorpan and channels).

Engine was stripped bare and painted black.

Shoot me offers! I have about 10k invested, was hoping for at least half. Cash only please. Thank you for looking.”

Report from the 2021 Parker Arizona Military Event

• CATEGORIES: Event, Features

Joe-in-Mesa filed this report from last weekend’s Parker Military Vehicle Display and Swap Meet in Parker, Arizona.

The inaugural Parker event was a great time, and very relaxing. No signal to speak of at the display area and campsite along the river, so we actually just communicated with one another with no outside world interruptions. Signal was normal once you got out onto highway 95 and back at our hotel in Parker.  The highlight for me was a true “Bucket List” item: trail ride to The Desert Bar (Nellie E. Saloon) Saturday afternoon. I also enjoyed the Friday night dinner and presentation about the WWII desert training areas Patton established in that area, mostly Arizona and California.

Here is a rest stop pic of the convoy to Parker with us up front (first time towing BOTH my WWII jeeps – new truck and trailer) and my friend David Webster with his MB and trailer.

Parker, Arizona, is located along the Colorado River on the western edge of Arizona.

Below are my wife Jan and David mugging during set up day one with my jeeps sporting the awesome covers I got from Ian Liljeblad (www.bigwillyjeep.com)

Lots of vendors displayed parts and militaria.  Military Vehicles on display were mostly 1/4 ton to 3/4 ton (more than 2 dozen).

1954 Tractor Field Book Farm Jeep Ad

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This Farm Jeep ad from this 1954 Tractor Field Book Magazine purchased off eBay shows that the Farm Jeep was still being advertised as late at 1954 (though there’s no record any Jeep Tractors were made past 1951). In fact, it’s estimated that in 1954 only 12 Farm Jeeps were produced, and the ones that were made were of the CJ-3B-Farm-Jeep variety rather than the CJ-3A version. This ad below shows the CJ-3B version, serial number prefix 454-GC2.

1945 BF-Goodrich Tires Ad on ebay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Magazine

This ad with women sipping tea while soldiers push through thick mud just expired on eBay, but will likely be relisted. It seems a bit unfair to women, as if they didn’t know a war was going on. I would imagine that most women likely were the main food shoppers and had to deal with shortages beyond just rubber.
