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.

https://hudsonvalley.craigslist.org/pts/d/pine-plains-jeep-gladiator-j3000-pickup/7219962291.html

“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.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/765445774251879/

“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

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

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

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/657991271571370/

“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 - Newspapers.com

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:

Unusual Dualmatic Hubs (Possibly for a Ford?)

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

Tim’s father-in-law purchased these Dualmatic hubs, but Tim’s unsure what vehicle they fit. Given the hub model number is F-230, we believe these were likely used on a Ford truck (possible the F-250, as that was the model of truck his father-in-law had). Anyone recognize them or know if they’d fit on a 1960s/70s Ford truck? The hubs are 19 spline.

UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $17,500.

Over all this jeep looks solid, but will need the brakes bled. Body has a few age marks (note the driver’s side inner cowl support).

“1943 Ford gpw Ww2 Jeep for sale. Serial number 162829. Vehicle is in good overall condition and period correct. It had a frame on preservation in the 90’s. It was last used in 2016 and parked. I’ve recently got it running again and replaced the following – fuel tank, 6v battery, plugs, coil, condenser, wires, and battery. It could use a tune up and driving. The brakes were replaced but need to be bleed from sitting. Wiring all is in very nice condition. It has a 30 cal dummy gun with a cradle and original mount. I have a beachwood canvas top and windshield cover that come with the Jeep. If your not interested in the cradle/mount/and 30 I can remove it and sell the Jeep for 16500.”
