New Shift Knob for the Racer

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Sometimes, it’s the little things that make a person happy. In this case, eBay served me up the perfect vintage knob for the racer. I did have to resize the threads, but that was trivial. I’m really happy with it (even Ann was excited about it, and pretty perplexed about why she was happy about it, lol).

In other news, I figured out why’d the brakes on the FC weren’t working quite right. The custom-built pedal assembly is rubbing in a way that keeps it, even with springs, from returning to its standard position. So, I need to rebuild the swing pedal assembly, but that also entails rewiring the cab. It will likely take me a good week to sort all that out. It’s really a good thing, because there were some electrical items yet to be hooked up, along with working through the speedometer cable, which isn’t quite long enough to reach the speedometer.

This is an estate sale. Looks like it was well-loved.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/3519161151731103/

“This is titled as a 1944 Willy’s Jeep that presents well as a WW2 era Jeep and runs and drives as it should. The body is a reproduction and there are reproduction and later Willys era parts but it is still a very correct looking, rust free example and is in amazing condition and ready to enjoy. It has had a very long term elderly owner, kept in temperature controlled storage and being sold to settle an estate. Also included are WW2 accessories including helmets, a 2 way radio, gas mask and more. This Jeep is about as nice as you will find. More photos are available upon request. $18,500 buys it. If listed, the Jeep is still available. Located in Waukesha, Wisconsin.”

The four-page April 1961 issue of Jeep Service and Parts News begins with the usual “here’s how to make more money” story on the front page. Page two introduces a new Bendix radio for jeeps, refering to Parts and Accessories Bulletin No. D-57, while a story on page four under Money Maker shares the news about Willys Overland Air Springs, referencing Parts and Accessories Bulleting D-39. I am now wondering how I missed ever seeing references to “Parts & Accessories Bulletins”? I guess I wasn’t looking for them. I’ll look and see if I can locate some.

Yesterday I was looking for something when I stumbled upon a Jeep collection in Lindon, Utah,(a short distance north of Provo, Utah) called the Jeep Guy Museum. It’s the first I’ve heard of it. I guess I’ll be back down to Utah to visit the kids sooner than expected, lol! The Jeep Guy currently offers private tours (possibly requiring a donation?), but hopes to move to a new location where they can be open to the public.
