1969 Jeepster Commando Stoughton, WI $3500

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster • TAGS: , , .

Someone created this custom Commando out of what was probably a rusted body.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/458282124826200/

“V6 225 3 speed T14 manual transmission. It was redone to look nice with rustoleum tractor red paint and filler. It has wood floor and homemade truck bed. I redid brakes and have it running well. Plow pump was removed. Unique and road worthy, but not highway worthy yet. Not many out there and would be great off-road as 4wd works.”

“This is my 1947 jeep willys cj2a that I converted to a pickup truck..

This is a 1947 Jeep Willys CJ-2A that I converted to a pickup truck
2.2 engine that was rebuilt
3 speed trans
2 speed transfer case
And stock axles as well
Runs and drives great I just no longer have space for it. It’s an Amazing head turning truck that everyone seems to love. I hate to get rid of it but it’s time to move on to the next project. This project needs a few finishing touches to be 100% complete.. I just lack the time and space to complete it.

It runs and drives great just never use it.
Also this is my bottom price and if it doesn’t sell by the end of the 30 days i will just end up keeping it.”

1943 Modified GPW Bozeman, MT eBay

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), Sedan-jeep, Unusual • TAGS: , , .

Thanks to Roger Martin for sharing this unusual vehicle. The buy-it-now price on this highly modified GPW/truck is $14,995. I’m not clear how the seller arrived at the price, but the vehicle itself is a whimsical item that seems to need some work.

“This is a very special vehicle I found a few months ago that came from a ranch in eastern Montana. Perhaps some handy rancher wanted a Jeep pickup before Jeep ever offered one. Perhaps he could not afford or justify the cost of one and decided to build one from a WW II Jeep, an extra WW II Jeep frame, an early Dodge pickup cab and the front of an as of yet unknown early steel pickup box.

This truck appears to have a chassis made out of a pair of WW II Jeep chassis that were cut off and butt welded together in the center to make a chassis that has a wheelbase just over 2 feet longer at 105-1/2”. That is 25-1/2″ longer than the stock WW II Jeep chassis that has an 80″ wheelbase. Someone then added a cab from a 1933 to early 1935 Dodge pickup or 1-1/2 ton truck so they would have some weather protection from the sometimes wild weather here in Montana.

What really impressed me about this truck the moment I first saw it is the amount of work some reasonably skilled craftsman went to to build a 4 wheel drive pickup out a tiny WW II Jeep. I have seen literally hundreds of WW II and later Jeeps in my life so far that have had cabs added to the original Jeep body but I have never seen one that had a pickup or truck cab installed on it like this truck has. Add to that the fact that the cab on this truck has the very attrractive backward opening “suicide” doors from the early 1930’s and one has a very special vehicle.

Not only was a completely different cab installed on this “stretched” Jeep chassis, but that cab was subjected to some very interesting modifications. The most obvious modification is the very special rounded cowl that adapted the cowl of the Dodge cab to the back of the flat Jeep cowl right bvehind the Jeep hood. I am very sure that that cowl adapter was not hand formed but I have not yet figured out what that specially formed piece of sheet metal may have been used on originally.

Please also notice the very significant fact that the as of yet unknown Jeep builder adapted a “V” windshield to the front of the Dodge cab that originally came with a flat whidshield. I have yet to figure out what vehicle that “V” windshield originally came in. Please help me here if you possibly can. Another modification to the Dodge truck cab would be the fact that it has a steel insert in the top of the roof rather than the original fabric roof that it came with when new. I have seen hundreds of Model A Ford and other similar vehicles from the 20’s and 30’s that had similar steel roofs installed when the original fabrick roofs went bad.

Year? CJ-2A w/Rear Box Centralia, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Unusual • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $650.

Dan spotted this crazy thing. The transmission cross member suggests it is a 2A and the grille suggests it is most likely a ’46.

“I’m selling an old flat fender flathead willys Jeep. This was a barn find, I know very little about it’s history and have no paper work on it. All I know is that it came from Canada and it was used as a snow plow at one time, it made its way down to Washington and then sat in a barn for 40 years. Very interesting custom body with suicide doors. Both door latches and roll down windows work. Has PTU gearbox on rear bumper but the drive shaft from the transmission is missing. Engine is in ruff shape, I have not tried to turn it over yet. Drive train seams to be in working order. What you see is what you get. I will leave it on my flatbed trailer so I can deliver it to you. I will deliver it as far as Idaho and Northern California for a charge of $1 a mile.”
