“Are you looking for the most amazing project?! This CJ-2A would be a great place to start! It seems to be all here and the body is in good shape. Just needs someone to put it back together! It would be a sweet body swap for a rock crawler or a great build back to original. I’m not sure if it’s a 57 or a 59. No title. I bought it with another one with the intention of restoring them. That’s what I’ll do if they don’t sell. I’ve just got a handful of projects right now and hate to see them sit. Looking for cash. No trades, and no scams. I know all the tricks. Thanks for looking.! Make me an offer! And feel free to contact me with any questions”

“Old Jeep Willys flat fender project. I believe she’s a 2-A but someone here probably knows more. Body panels are in good shape. She definitely needs someone to love her. A fantastic project car, or would be a sweet bar or decoration in a man cave or bar. I. Included a picture of the bar I built in my shop. I’ve got 2 of these and would work a deal on both of them. This one is still on the trailer and ready to be delivered in the next few days.”

Unusual Windshield on MB

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

UPDATE: As Barney notes in the comments, it appears to be a windshield adapted from a Mighty Mite. You can see an example here: http://www.ewillys.com/wp-content/uploads2/2020/11/year-m422a1-imperial-ca1.jpg

Buz just acquired this MB that has an unusual windshield setup. I have seen some bubba jobs similar to this windshield, but someone did this much better than most. It does not appear to be an M-38A1 windshield (too narrow), but it doesn’t appear to be a CJ-3A/DJ-3A windshield (curved top holder). Anyone recognize it?

He described the windshield this way:

I bought this 1943 Willys MB with this unusual style M38A1 windshield assembly. It is narrower than the M38A1 windshield and this one has not been cut and welded. Also a very precise adaptation to the cowl to mount the windshield. No doubt it probably harms the value of the 1943 model, but it has to have been some sort of factory modification, it’s not a home brew bubba job. Have you ever seen anything similar to this?  I have the history of this jeep back to 1947. The first civilian registration was issued in 1947 to E. W. Worrell who paid $800 for it in Hillsville, VA.

Here are some pics.

Back to the Racer

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features • TAGS: .

After an unexpected detour of 6 months, I finally had a chance to return to working on the racer.

My first project was to create the side bars by reusing the 2 1/2″ side bars from the yellow racer. You can see them mounted on the old racer here (my finger is accidentally pointing out the driver’s sidebar in this pic). I cut both of them off this chassis.

2022-05-31-parkette-body-disassembled-interior1

Here is a side view of the old chassis. These sidebars are angled upward to attach at the angled portion of the frame near the engine mounts. I liked the look of them, so figured I’d reuse them. At this point, I also plan to build the new racer cage similar to what you see blow, but with a few changes.

2022-05-31-parkette-body-disassembled-cage5

Somehow, I managed not to take many pics of this process, but I started with my new metal saw by cutting the side bars so they’d sit flat (I removed the sidebars from the other chassis with a sawz-it-all, so the cuts weren’t great).

Trying to get this angle just right on the front portion of the bars was tricky. So, I cut the back bar first to the optimal length, then dropped the front of the bar over the edge of the table until the tube was level. Then used the flat edge of a carpenter square to draw a straight edge on the bar.

2023-01-08-racer-build7

Here, the cut has been finished.

2023-01-08-racer-build8

Next, I welded plates to each tube end. Then, I clamped the tubes to the sides of the frame. With that done, Ann and I put the body in place to make sure it fit over the angled side bar, which it does.

2023-01-08-racer-build6Here’s a view from the back:
2023-01-08-racer-build9

Since it looks like things will fit correctly, I will pull the body back off, pull the side bars off, clean off the paint where I need to weld on the frame, and attach the sidebars.

Next, I’ll spend some time determining how the floor, cage, firewall, and the seats will mount, and how the side of the body will attach to the cage (the body sides are weak rather flimsy, so it needs a good mounting system).

https://reno.craigslist.org/hvo/d/genoa-1946-willys-jeep-trencher/7564942656.html

“We bought a ranch a couple years ago that had a variety of farm/construction equipment and junk on the property. We’ve gradually sold off or disposed of most of it. We’ve been on the fence however about what to do with this bizarre little rig; a WWII-era jeep that has a trencher built onto it. Part of me wants to hold on to it and take it back to a stock jeep. On the other hand, how many projects can a body accomplish in a limited number of years? Thus, if the right person were to offer, say, $6,500. in cash, I would part with it.
I have not tried to start it, though everything else on the property that was parked 15 years ago when the ranch was abandoned, has been made to run..
We are well off the grid, east of Minden, NV. Phone reception is poor. If you have an interest, please text me and we can arrange a visit.
