I suspect this is a 1948 CJ-2A with a 3B fiberglass body. It appears to be a Bobcat body based on the wide rim around the edge. Could be a good price.

Some custom work added some handy steps. The bed tilts.

View all the information on eBay

1958-fc150-luther-ia

“We have had our FC150 at the farm doing work since we purchased it 5 years ago. I once heard somebody describe the FC150 as a “Tractor with a cab and heater”! This is a very accurate statement! This Jeep truly goes anywhere! I have never had it stuck or even struggle thru our deep ravines and hills! But over the last year we haven’t used it as much as we use to and decided its time to sell.

The Jeep appears to have its original engine which runs great! It starts easily if you start it every day or two but if you leave it sit for a week or so then it takes a little primer (a shot of carb cleaner) to get it started. It shifts thru all four gears with no issues and idles well. A tune up was done about a year ago which consisted of new plugs, oil and carburetor rebuild. I also removed and cleaned the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump and filter. I am not sure what the top speed of the vehicle is but my guess would be 40 -45 mph. The 4 wheel drive works great! It has the lock out hubs but I have never switched them and assume they work.

All hydraulics work great! The pump is powered by a PTO which is activated by a hand pull. The winch works great( I have never been stuck but stretched the cable out and rewound it by pulling the jeep backwards). The snow plow moves up and down smoothly but I have never had a blade on it. And of course the custom diamond plate dump bed works awesome! I have loaded the back end full of red oak-drove out of the woods-backed up to my wood pile and dumped the entire contents with no problems!

1943 GPW Auburn, WA $20,000

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB) • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price increased to $20k. Seller believes this was a 4wheel steer jeep. Based my research, 50 GPW 4WS were produced, but were they produced as late as 1943?

(07/11/2017) Seller thinks those tires and rims are original …. this has a gas tank in the rear.

“So I picked up this 1943 Willis flat fender ford built and it just so happens to be model gpw-4ws and that meens a lot actuall makes it a 4 wheel steering jeep that is one of the 50 they made.the rear steering is unhooked but its all there and the numbers are right on so as you can imagine my numbers are going up a lot.the last one that sold was a couple years ago n was in a lot worse shape then mine n went for 46,000 that being said mine only has 95000 miles it still has the original tires n wheels it also has a brand new top and original cast iron 4cyl engine n here’s the deal this thing is old n needs to be cherished n I need a jeep that is trail ready so if I sold it I would be asking 20,000 so any tj or rubicon 4dr and some cash works or just cash me out n double your money in a month or two at auction.i just want something that’s dependable for me to take my kids out in will do. ”

1959 Wagon Hickory, NC No Price

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

Looks good. The interior “diamond plating” on the ceiling is actually thin plastic sheets cut to fit the side panels and headliner.

1959-wagon-hickory5 1959-wagon-hickory6 1959-wagon-hickory7 1959-wagon-hickory8 1959-wagon-hickory4

“According to Willys records, less than 12,000 wagons were produced in 1959. All were powered by the Super Hurricane 226 Cubic Inch inline 6-cylinder flat head engine. Combined with the 3 speed manual transmission, this drive train produced a neck-snapping 115 HP and could almost reach 55 mph down hill with a tail wind. These wagons came in both the two-wheel and four-wheel drive models and were designed for strength and durability, not speed.

It is difficult to find any of these vehicles today. For the most part, those that do exist do not resemble the original. Most have been subjected to the “improvements” of a high-powered engine and transmission swap.

This rare example has seen restoration efforts by 3 successive owners since 2008. Each has added his or her contribution but no effort has been made to change the original 58 year-old powertrain.
