I wouldn’t describe this as “an easy project”, but there’s plenty here with which to work.

“this is an extremely rare and desirable cj2a with the “Jeep A Trench” option,it is complete but will need full restoration ,the trencher attachment is in very good condition and seems to have been used very little ,the engine is complete and unaltered ,it does turn nd was running when parked but again this will need to be restored. it also has the rare dual wheel option with reverse disc wheels in the front.this is an easy project wince it is mostly complete , it has sat for many years until a shed deteriorated so it has weathered quite a lot.

Unique Collection of Jeeps East Haddam, Ct

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-6, CJ-7, CJ5, Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Unusual • TAGS: , , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE:  Brian’s selling his unique collection of jeeps.  Among them is a CJ-6 Wrecker, a CJ-5 Trencher, CJ-5 Snow Blower and the first CJ-5 ever produced. 

You are bidding on a massive collection of jeep vehicles, literature, memorabilia, dealer items, toys, and much more.   This is the collection of Jeep restorer and enthusiast, Brian Hainer, of Brian’s 4wd Parts, LLC.   This list of vehicles is as follows:

1946 CJ2A,
original survivor with 7000 miles on it.  Original top, chaff screen, rear seat.  Even has original key and invoice from Willys/Overland.  Has the patina of a 50+ year old vehicle and is one of the most original examples of a CJ2A in existence.

1962 CJ6 Garage Service Vehicle. This has been restored from the ground up and is flawless.  Original Koenig Wrecker Boom, and Front winch.  Twin Stick PTO powers the front winch, rear wrecker winch, and air compressor.  Since the photos posted were taken I have made some top bows and sewn a full lenght bikini top for it.  Made out of black canvas.  I also added a Extend-a-Bed to this vehicle.  There just isn’t any room back there to carry anything and I wasn’t planning on using the boom so I added the extension.

1977 Jeep CJ7. This satisfied my need to go fast every now and again.  V8 304, 4.10 gears, ……  This jeep is a perfect driver and restored with the same care as every vehicle that comes thru my shop.

1968 CJ5 Jeep-a-Trench. This is an unrestored CJ5 bought from the original owner a couple years ago.  Everything is there and is a great example of a trencher.  Runs and drives but smokes like crazy.   Awaiting restoration.

196?  CJ5 Snowblower Jeep. Not exactly sure of the year.  This came from an airport and has 109 miles on it.  Runs perfect, has the T-98 4 speed in it, but it is very rusty.  Body will need replacing.

CJ5 10001 Cut Away Jeep Chassis . This jeep chassis is a cut away display model made by Willys.  It has every option you could install on a jeep at the time and everything is cut open so you could see the operation of it.  Front winch, governor, twin stick pto, rear gearbox, and right angle pulley.  A true piece of history.

That about covers the vehicles.  Also included in this sale is every piece of literature, memoriabilia, jeep toy, etc.. that I have collected over the past 30 years.  If it is jeep related I probably have it…. bought out a lot of dealers and collected a lot of signs, and early salesmens books.

The Jeep Toy collection is an impressive one and includes #92 of the Fine Art Model of the ww2 MB.   Fine art models got into a battle with Chrysler a while back over making these and it is very rare to ever see one for sale.   You will receive #92 with this collection.

1967 CJ-5 Dually Owasso, OK **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay for $1000.

“This is a 1967 jeep cj5 DUALLY. My understanding is that is was owned by the Texas DOT and was used as an auger. The oil in the engine is black, but there is no apparent water in it. The engine compartment is dusty, but VERY complete. It has an alternator instead of generator. I feel with a little cleaning/tuning the engine would run. ( I have revived engines that looked 10 times worse!) The bad, The tranny cover was left loose and water penetrated it as well as the t-case (the drain plug was missing) so they are seized. The windshield is cracked. Both drive shafts are present, but disconnected due to frozen tranny and t-case. The frame has a 1/2 inch thick plate from the front bumper to the rear bumper following the contours of the frame on the outside of the frame rails. THEY ARE BOLTED TO THE FRAME and appear to be manufactured, not made by some some monkey with a torch. The rear axle is a monster, my understanding is that it is a Dana 70. There is a fuel tank, heavier than normal and with no sending unit hole. There are no seats, and the center most portion of the transmission flloor cover near the shifter is missing. The body is surprisingly lacking in rust. There is a minimal amount in the normal locations, but even the hat channels are in good shape. Please ask any questions before bidding, I am willing to help load the vehicle but the buyer is responsible for transportation. ******I just noticed in a couple of the pictures there are side steps that are NOT on the jeep any longer!*******”

FC-150 & FC-170 Diesel Ishpeming, Mi Make Offer

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: , , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE2:  Still Available

UPDATE:  Craig confirms that this is a FC-170 DRW; it’s unclear if the diesel is original or if it is a replacement engine (rather than a M-676 with a Cerlist Diesel.)

“I have an FC 150 and an FC 170 that will be sold as a pair. The FC 170 has no motor, trans or transfer case. It was a RARE factory diesel with a Gafner loader. It has a GVW of 9000# with Dana axles. Found a bell housing and flywheel in the cab so I assume it is off the diesel. Odometer shows 7500 miles. The FC 150 is pretty much complete except for the seats. It has a 4 cylinder F134 motor that will be rebuilt shortly. It has the standard bore and reground crank and bearings to match. Waitng for a front seal and valve stem seals. Odometer shows 21,500 miles. I am just stating what the odometers say, don’t know if it is the actual miles or not. Both Jeeps last plated around 1973-74.  I am open to REASONABLE OFFERS. I am not going to give these away so don’t waste my time. I do have more pics if you are serious.”

Saturday at the Midwest Willys Reunion

• CATEGORIES: News • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

While it was cold and rainy, mixed with, gulp, a little snow here in Boise, weather improved out in Ohio for the Midwest Willys Reunion.  Both Bob and Brian snapped a variety of images and gave their own perspectives

Bob writes, “Much better weather today in the mid 70s. There looked to be about 100 Jeeps of all sorts today. There were lots of Cj2as and 3as, three CJ3Bs, and lots of truck and wagons. A whole lot to look at!  The little Jeep dispatcher [the red jeep a few pics down] was very cool and sold for around $5500. Also, there were lots of parts to be had. Tomorrow is supposed to be in the high 80s.”

Hey Bob, what is sticking out of the side of the yellow flattie? Is it an air cleaner?  Is the ‘windshield’ glass or plexiglass?

What’s the color on this flattie, red or orange or a blend?  I like the color.  Nice dually, too!

This is the DJ-3A that sold.  Are these DJ-3A windshields taller than a CJ-3B windshield?  Or were they simply re-purposed for the DJ-3A?

I’m assuming that is an aftermarket bumper?  I can’t say I’ve seen one of these on any jeeps for sale that I have seen.

Brian seemed to be captivated by the trucks and wagons during this visit.  He captured some great pics of Chad’s project (Chad received the Toledo Brick award, something the Reunion staff has been doing for several years now. It’s a brick from the old Jeep plant in Toledo.) and a pic of his favorite at the show, this wagon below (click on the pic to get a much larger pic).

Here’s images of Chad’s truck:

And 2 other wagons:

1961 FC-170 Dually Marysvale, Ut **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE:  This was bought for the ‘buy it now’ price of $8000.  Thanks Dennis!

(11/24/09) I like it, in part because it looks like it still gets used.  Marysvale is deep in the middle of Utah.  I’ve never been there, but I’ve been jeeping out of Mt. Pleasant above Marysville.  I’ve also flown over that area a number of times and scoped it out pretty well (you can see a variety of trails from above) with the idea that I’d go jeeping there at some point.  Also, the San Rafael Swell is a good area to explore also and is ignored by most tourists (or used to be).

“Willys Jeep FC-170. Dually flatbed. Purchased restored & used as light duty ranch truck. Stored inside. Still in nice condition. Has stock engine & transmission, 4wd. Was previously used as a parade vehicle but now carries a Lincoln welder (not included). Interior is all redone with blue velour seats. Runs & starts good in warm weather. It is not run in the winter. There are external exhaust pipes on each rear corner of the cab – sounds great too. This truck shows 80,000 miles but seller cannot guarantee actual milage.”

New rebuilt carb, recent tires, new battery, new brakes (currently a little spongy, will bleed before auctins end), heater(aftermarket), wiring harness (painless), etc. Not perfect, but a nice driver or property/Town vehicle. It has a clear VT registration and has been on the road recently. Body in very good condition, some small dents, coarse body work and paint. Frame is straight and clean and retains its full side plate reinforcements from the trencher. Drivetrain all sounds and looks good with a few leaks. Motor runs well, but smokes on start up and a little bit when running …”
