CJ-2L? Extended CJ-2A Sold @ Auction for $700

• CATEGORIES: Auctions, CJ-2A, Features • TAGS: .

Blaine discovered this possible CJ-2L that was auctioned off last weekend. The auction occurred just north of where I live, but, unfortunately, we didn’t learn about he auction until today.

I called one of the men responsible for the auction. He had some images of the jeep saved to his phone, so he forwarded them to me. He couldn’t remember who bought the jeep. These are the first photos I’ve seen of the underside of an extended CJ-2A. In this case, the extension was done poorly and looks more like a backyard extension than that of a dealer.

Coast Guard Lengthened Jeep AKA The Invader Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, GPW (Ford MB), videos • TAGS: , , .

Coast Guard Super-Jeep at the National Guard Militia Museum in New Jersey.

Posted at bangshift (though I couldn’t find this original link), referenced by Jalopnik, linked to by Kaiser Willys, and forwarded by Colin, here is a great video  of a coast guard “super jeep” in action.

NEWS ARTICLES:

1) From the May 06, 1944, Perth Mirror in Australia:

TRAVELS 60 MPH OVER SANDY BEACHES
At a Coastguard Station on the Atlantic Coast, U.S. Coast Guards men recently demonstrated a new super-jeep, carrying 10 men and traveling up to 60 miles an hour over sand. Officials said the super-jeep was developed to meet special problems of Coast Guard shore patrols. Chassis of a regulation jeep was halved and steel shafts inserted to add one yard to its wheelbace. Seats for 10 were installed and specially designed wheels employed to permit travel over any kind of beach.

2) Volume 70 of the U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings discusses the results of the Coast Guard Jeep. Unfortunately I don’t have access to the whole document. I do have this:

As a basis for comparison, the regular Army jeep tried to follow the super-jeep over the same course, but foundered in the deep sand. The super-jeep was developed in the Coast Guard transportation office to meet the special demand that branch of services has for a vehicle capable of moving through sand . . .

Bruce spotted this unusual flattie.

“We have a 1946 Willys jeep that was passed down from my grandfather. It was running last year but had some bad fuel and needs a carb job and a clean tank of fuel. Engine and transmission in great shape, but the suspension needs to be replaced. The body is very much restorable. I am only interested in serious offers on this Jeep…No tire kickers please. Im not sure on the KM’s, but had to put in something. 4000$ OBO”

Next Updates Sunday Evening

• CATEGORIES: News • TAGS: , , .

Ann and I arrived safely in Pasco after a sunny/rainy/snowy/windy day driving through the panhandle of Idaho, then west to Pasco. We spotted and photographed a couple jeeps, ate some good food and visited with family; so it was a complete day!

More tomorrow on this possible CJ-2L Bruce spotted. Note rare Desert Dog PCV tires (not that they are in good shape).  They have a tighter tread than the standard Desert Dog tires.

Year? CJ-2A Coeur D Alene, ID **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $400.

This looks like a great price and a fun restoration.  It would be useful to see just how this was stretched. This could be a rare CJ-2L. This it the 5th one I have heard about or seen in the Pacific Northwest. You can see other stretched jeeps here. This looks like a good price.  This almost looks like an old lefty, too.

“It’s all there but will need complete resto.Was stretched by a previous owner.Wheel studs are broken on front axle,so will not hold wheels. No title.”
