“Very nice Jeep Willy’s CJ2A with a strong later Jeep V6 engine with headers. Custom paint job. Transmission and transfer case were recently rebuilt. Original Steel body. New bikini top (can be hemmed for custom fit). Roll cage and bench seat. Always kept inside. Zero rust! Great body out/under and in between. Super sold example! There is a small spot on rear passenger fender that needs painted (black to match other side) but this does not affect the nice paint job at all. Otherwise I know of nothing that it needs. Good tires, brakes and clutch. Very well cared for inside and out. Keep in mind this is a 73 year old vehicle so expect some imperfections. Clear title in hand.”

A little nitpicky item. The seller notes the tranny was rebuilt, but shows a pic of the transfercase.  The drain hole appears filled.

“1965 Willys/Jeep CJ3B Meyer T5 plow setup (with title). Body and interior are rough, but mechanically sound. Good running F134 engine. Owned for 13+ years. Not road worthy, but reliable plow vehicle. Has PowerTrax lockers installed in both axles. Good base for rock-crawler project. Decent tires. Plow package includes spare parts including two working Hy-Low pumps, spare plow frame, cylinder, and original ElectorLift T5 pump. Also included is a CJ5 rolling chassis (no title) with an F134.

This motor has all new guts. Block was machined by NAPA and has .020 pistons, rods, and replacement crankshaft/bearings. Hasn’t even been broken in yet. Regret not painting the dipped block. Just surface rust though. Also included is a extra F134 engine, and a set of a front and rear axles, transmission and transfer case. Lastly, 3 totes, chucked full of various parts. Package deal sold as is. You have to come get it. LaPorte, IN near Toll Road. Prefer PayPal, cash will do. I’m getting old and the lockers make it too hard to steer without power steering. The hillbilly hardtop keeps the snow off, but I’d rather have heat and a cab… “

Sunday’s Trip Through Canyonlands

• CATEGORIES: Features
2019-05-05-white-rim-karson-ann-david

Sunday morning was perfect for the drive through Canyonlands and for pics. Ann, me and Karson. I’m not sure how my son got so tall?? Must be a camera angle thing? Sigh.

On Sunday morning we left for the White Rim trail in Canyonlands National Park. Driving out of Moab, we had a cloudless morning with perfect temperatures in the 60s. As we left, we drove past a jeep hoisted onto a sign for the Expedition Lodge motel in downtown Moab, something that must have been added in the last two years. It’s missing the drive train, but otherwise still has quite a few parts.

2019-05-05-moab-yellow-jeep1 2019-05-05-moab-yellow-jeep3

In contrast to the yellow jeep, our rental jeep was a white newer 4-door Wrangler. Karson rented it through Canyonlandsjeep, which he said provided the least expensive jeep rentals (the folks there were great). It was slightly lifted and had oversize tires. The one downside of the rental jeep was that we were not allowed to drop the tire pressure. As a result (and as you can imagine) the ride proved to be rougher than it otherwise had to be.

Wanted: Dave’s Dad’s Old CJ-2A

• CATEGORIES: Features

Dave Naylor (kaisercj71 @ yahoo.com) is hoping to locate his Dad’s old 1947 CJ-2A. His story is below:

So, just a long shot here but, please play along. In Grangeville, ID (pretty sure it was Grangeville) around 1951, my dad traded his ’47 2A on a ’51 4×4 Willys truck. I’ve lost all hope of ever finding that old 2A, having no VIN number to work from but, I’m kind of interested if obtaining some old pictures or other artifacts from that dealership, circa late 40’s or early 50’s.

The dealership was Gort Smith Motors or maybe Gortsema Motors, AFAIK, and was still in business several years ago. I called them wondering if any old sales records were still in existence. No luck, as I had imagined.

If anyone stumbles across any period items related to this dealership, I’d be interested in obtaining them. Not sure what all brands they sold as many dealers sold other stuff besides just Willys. I’d be interested in Willys/Jeep items only, of course.

Thanks folks.
