Old Flattie Racer Othello, Wa **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $800.

This has some solid lettering Dogs.  It sure looks like a racer from the 80s maybe.

“This is a project rig. It does not run. I don’t know what kind of shape the drive train is in. I found it in a field. I was told it used to be raced and the axles are welded up. I due have a title for it. I can’t remember the year at the moment but 46′ sticks in my head. I was going to build a wheeler out of it but I have no time or money. I’d like to see $800 but feel free to make an offer. I can send more pics. It’s currently in storage in Othello but I live in tri-cities.”

Oldies but Goodies – Desert Dog Tires

• CATEGORIES: Biscuit, Features • TAGS: .

The main reason for my trip to Seattle this weekend was to pick up a set of Forumla Desert Dog tires from Mitch with some good tread still left that I can use as offroad tires.  I have four more hurricane rims just aching for these tires, so I can’t wait to get them mounted.  This should really make Biscuit ready for summertime explorations.  Thanks Mitch!

Some old desert dogs on the front and old terras on the rear.  The rims with the terras look pretty good.  Given those additions, I wonder if the drive train was upgraded with anything like posi.

1955 CJ-5 Detroit, Mi $2750 w/plow

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: , , , .

This stock looking CJ-5 with a great half cab has some cool hubcaps and some early formula desert dogs.  This might just be the last jeep you’ll see with both hubcaps & desert dogs.  This appears to have the early CJ-5 reversed front springs, too.  I like it.

“Very solid steel cab on rough body. Plow is Full Hydraulic Up-Down and Left-Right from Inside Cab and is 6 1/2 ft. wide. Engine is 232 straight six cylinder, three speed on floor. Runs like a tank, Very strong, Very low overall gear ratios. Will deliver, per mile rate. Call: two six O / four one O / six five O one.”
