Year CJ-3B Schuyler Falls, NY **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: .

UPDATE: WAS $2000. **SOLD**

This runs.  It looks like a good wind would blow the paint right off of this.

“This is a nice little Flat Fender CJ. Someone went through the running gear a few years ago and it was on the road. It runs good, just put a new battery and fuel pump in it. Brakes are good and I think it will pass inspection as is. The body need some patches. The Plow Hoist in the photo does not come with it.”

1946 CJ-2A Patterson, Ca eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

That is an unusual F-head engine hood modification.  The Willys-Overland hard top looks great.  I don’t think the grille looks original (the parking lights appear to be a later model).  The overdrive isn’t original either, as it hadn’t been developed as of 1946.

“Offered for auction is a classic 1946 Jeep. This jeep has been family owned since new. It is so old the VIN # is 65111. It is all original except for the installation for an up graded F-Head engine in the early 1950’s. The hood scoop was added to allow for the room needed. It has “dual-matic” front hubs and a Warn 20% reduction overdrive all standard. This rare old jeep also has the original metal top and a heavy duty (tropic) radiator. The tires are new. This jeep runs perfectly. It is ready for restoration or modification. It is a great example of solid steel construction from 1946. A true American Classic. Bidders please note it is offered locally as well.”

1959 DJ-3A Berkeley Springs, WV **SOLD**

I don’t see too many DJ-3As that still have their tops.  Someone converted this to 4wd.

A Willys of Frankenstinian Proportions $1500 (OD)

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1500.

On a trip to Bonner’s Ferry, Idaho, Dan discovered this unusual project.   Underneath all the modifications is a 1943 GPW.  What’s amazing to me is that, all things considered, it doesn’t look all that bad.  Someone certainly cobbled together a variety of vehicles, along with a healthy supply of diamond plating to keep this vehicle on the road.  No doubt it was better than sporting a soft top in cold weather.
