M-38A1 Radiator And a Spicer PTO Unit Indianapolis, IN

• CATEGORIES: Parts

Chris has an M-38A1 radiator and a Spicer rear PTO (still needs to be removed, so not pics just yet) for sale. Make offer. Contact Christ at cyoke455 @ gmail.com (remove spaces from around the @).

“I have an original radiator for sale out of my M38A1. There is a pinhole leak in the radiator core. Mine is too far from original condition for OEM parts to matter, so I put an aftermarket in it. Thought someone might need it for a restore.

I also have a complete and fully functional Spicer PTO I am removing from it that I want to sell. No pics yet as I have to remove it still.”

Beach camping at Gander.

The crew spent the day doing some more exploring of Newfoundland. They began the morning on the beach at Gander Lake. It ended at Gros Morne National Park.

Another short driving day, with a wet drive from Gander to Gros Mourne National Park.

Gander Lake proved to be a beautiful place to begin the day.

While the beach is a romantic spot to camp, it’s not all that flat. So, Joe and Bill had to get creative with their equipment in order to have their beds passably level.

The crew’s campsite for Saturday night.

On Saturday, the Newfoundland crew left their comfortable environs at Pippy Park for lands unknown (to them) for some primitive camping.  Below, the sun shone a little more than the day before as they left the campground:

Both on Friday and on Saturday the crew met members of the Overland Newfoundland group, a “group for outdoor loving people who seek adventure by overlanding” the province of Newfoundland Labrador.

1957 CJ-5 (14k miles) Storrs, CT **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $9500.

“For sale is a very nice example of an unmolested early Willys Jeep CJ5. Its a 1957 with just over 14,000 original miles.. Starts, runs, drives, and stops as it should. This would be an incredible piece to do a full restoration on or just enjoy the originality and patina of it and hop in and go just like it is. That was my original intention on this one, just to address a few of the minor rust spots and enjoy it just like it is and was meant to be.”

Our intrepid Newfoundland crew spent the day meeting more folks and taking in the sights.

They started the morning at the break of dawn, hoping to see the first rays of sun to hit the North American continent. So, they drove to Cape Spear (A National Historic Site), the most eastern edge of Canada. However, Mother Nature fooled them, hiding the sun behind some clouds ….
