1948 CJ-2A Lexington, KY Make Offer

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: The seller responded to an inquiry indicating that due to the condition of the shed, it might be a week or two before they’ll allow anyone into the shed to look at the jeep. 

The seller has this listed at $10,000, but that’s only because they couldn’t leave it blank.

https://lexington.craigslist.org/cto/7050412780.html

“Barn find. Ran sometime before it was parked… Located north of Lexington. Please reply through Craigslist email. Will consider all reasonable offers. There are some required fields I wasn’t going to fill in but have to. No, we’re not really expecting $10,000, but it won’t let you leave that box blank. This was my dad’s. We do have the title somewhere. And I’m guessing it is a manual transmission – can’t imagine it being an automatic. Thanks!”

Ted’s Newest Model Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

teds-unusual-toy-jeep-lores04

A few days ago while looking at Facebook in the Massachusetts area, this model jeep caught my eye. It was just different enough to cause me to look closer at it and, at 21″ long, I could tell it was an unusually large model. Even better, it was a very reasonable price. I contacted the seller, but, unfortunately, she was unwilling to ship it (I shed lots of tears!!). Since Ted Jordan lives in the area, I contacted him, but unsurprisingly, he had already had his eye on it. His daughter finally picked it up the other day and, thanks to Ted, we have some great detail pics of it.

According to Ted, “After closer inspection this thing is a beast weighing in at 18lbs and 21″ long and 9 1/2″ tall.  Its super cool and I would have to say home made by somebody. Just doesn’t look like something you’d find at a store, very well built but also a little crude in some ways. The guy is also pretty neat; he’s molded to sit in an upright position and, although Im not sure if he was made at the time of the Jeep, he seems to fit with the size and overall look of the piece. Jeep seems to be a mix of wood and metal fenders, windshield frame, underside, and most of the small parts as well being metal.

I’ve taken the some of the pics with a few more common Jeeps (Tonka,Marx,and the small JH Millstein Glass candy container Jeep) to show the crazy size comparison. I’d love it if you could post some pics of this Jeep and see if any of the other guys have any info on this thing or anyone has ever seen one like it.”

1953 Photo of an Early Experimental Mail Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine, Old Images • TAGS: .

This photo and caption appeared in the October 1953 issue of Popular Science (page 124). There are several interesting things in this photo. First, this jeep is setup with right-hand-drive; second, the body has been cut similar to the way some of the DJ-3As would be trimmed on the sides; third, this vehicle is only two-wheel-drive. This is the earliest photo that I know showing an experimental mail jeep that, arguably, led to the DJ-3A Dispatcher/Delivery/Convertible production models. The picture, without the caption, can also be found on the CJ-3B page about mail jeeps.

The Pee Wee Jeeplet

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine, Models, Old Images • TAGS: .

This 600lb jeep-like vehicle was built by O.L. Munding of Glendale, California. It was included in the October 1953 issue of Popular Science (page 124). On the same page, the magazine also featured a rat rod vehicle built by Munding that was powered by two air-rolled Ranger engines, war surplus items originally used to start big bomber engines.

“Up for sale is my 1946 cj2a Willy’s Jeep. It has the Buick v6 oddfire motor swap, original axles , t-90 3 speed , older 33″ mud tires , fiberglass hood and front fenders, and a modern gauge cluster. It was totaled by insurance last year but the actual damage did not affect its drivability after some minor repairs. It will have a salvage title and might be an issue but I’m not familiar with that process. If your looking for a fun project this is a very complete Willy’s with a ton of potential. Motor has low miles from a rebuild company , clutch is relatively new. 6,000 obo. Could make a really fun trail rig and is a great alternative to side by sides as it is highway legal.”

“For sale, 1952 M38. Nine year old frame off restoration. Have all the original receipts plus what I’ve put into it. Engine was rebuilt also. Used wrong adaptor on my compression gauge and bent valve. Has been replaced and runs good again. Can show receipts and pictures for the valve work. Has minor master cylinder leak. Have a new one just to lazy to put it on. New brakes in 2018 and new water pump in 2019. New batteries in 2019. Has overdrive but seriously I have never tried it. (My bad) has been in heated garage since I’ve owned it and never seen rain.

Have some new steering parts. Have most of the fording parts. Has a couple of typical oil leaks but nothing bad. All the fluids, tranny, transfer case, rear ends, anti freeze, and engine oil have been changed recently. Wiper motors are but not hooked up, no blades either. . Since it doesn’t see rain, never needed them. Gas gauge has some rust showing in it.

Since there were 100 different opinions on the direction of the hood star, I put it the way I believed it goes. My knee doesn’t work real good with the clutch anymore so I’m selling it. If your looking for a museum piece this isn’t it but it’s a nice clean vehicle that just needs a little TLC. I also have an M274 A5 with recoilless rifle mule for sale. Four wheel steering. Nice but no museum piece either. I’m asking $15,000.00 for the M38 and $17,000.00 for the mule or thirty for both”
