There have been a few minor updates, however it sure looks nicely stock.  It would probably restore very nicely.

Builds — Sand Drag Jeep from Santa Barbara

I ran across this great looking Sand Drag Jeep called Impulsive Behavior.  From what I learned off the website, the owner’s name is Tim and he is a member of the Santa Barbara 4WD Jeep Club.

Impulsive Behavior “has a 468 cubic inch BBC generating just under 800Hp with almost 600 lb-ft of torque. This power plant will move the 2100 pound vehicle to 82 mph in 4.04 seconds on a 300 foot long race track.”

1949 CJ-2A Tempe, Az eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

1949_cj3a_tempeUPDATE: Now on eBay. Many more pics and very detailed description — if only all sellers were so precise!

This jeep looks fantastic, but I am surprised someone would do all this work and not replace the 41 rear end with a Dana 44.  Note that this is the original tub, but the tailgate has been carefully removed.

“1949 Willys CJ-2A Jeep which has been mildly customized and modified for off-road and everyday usage around town. This Jeep has been professionally done with attention to detail and function, incorporating many modern upgrades yet still keeping the period CJ-2A look. Although this Jeep has the look and capabilities for serious off-roading it has never been driven on anything but hard surfaced highways. It has been re-powered with a Chevrolet 283 small block backed by Muncie 4-speed transmission and goes like a bat-out-of-hell, but has plenty of low-end torque for any situation.”

1941 Ford GP United Kingdom **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Bantam-FordGP-WillysMA-EarlyJPs, Unusual • TAGS: , .

1941_ford_gpUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $24,500.

This rare Ford GP is listed at £17,500, which currently converts to $24,500.  It was listed back in June of 2008 on the Willysjeep.com site, which is a UK based jeep site. I assume it’s still for sale as it’s still listed on their website for sale.  There are also a GPW, some MBs and some Hotchkiss jeeps for sale there as well.

“A very Rare Pre-Production Ford GP Jeep (1941). This is one of only a handfull that remain in the UK today. Restored to a high level. For more information, please call today on 01694 731373.

1949 CJ-2A Russellville, AR **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

1949_cj2a_alabamaUPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This appears to be in pretty good condition. The seller is trying to claim mileage of only 5800, but I’m very sure that’s a replacement speedometer (as are several of the other gauges).  I suspect the front turn signals/pking lights are after market as well.

“What an amazing vehicle!  This jeep was given to a Tennessee Forrest Ranger as a retirement gift, and he held onto it unitl I bought it  3 months ago!  It runs out really well…has new tires…a working original WENCH and PTO GEARS underneath for FARM ATTACHMENTS… The engine is a HURRICANE 4 cyl with 3 speed transmission…4WD…5800 ORIGINAL miles and the ORIGINAL PAINT, as well…I’ve been through many jeeps, and I have to say that I’ve never seen another like this!  it’s truly ONE-OF-A-KIND!”

Builds — Oklahoma Green and One Bad Apple

• CATEGORIES: Builds, CJ-3A, Features • TAGS: .

I was searching for an image of original CJ-3A gauges when i stumbled upon this article.  Both of these are well modified, good looking road and trail jeeps.  One of the more interesting features of the ‘Oklahoma Green’ Jeep is the number of gauges that are installed.  One Bad Apple certainly has an usual paint job.

Here’s 2 excerpts from an Off Road Adventures Article; each one discuss a little bit about each jeep:

oklahoma_greenOklahoma Green: “… Below the CJ3A Willys’ windshield is a dashboard that would be more than adequate in a J3 Super Cub airplane of the same vintage. The aircraft-like dash sports a full compliment of gauges: fuel, fuel pressure, oil pressure, oil temp, water temp, vacuum, and air pressure gauges along with a voltmeter, hourmeter, and altimeter by Hobbs. A Lev-O-Gauge rounds out the impressive array. Lights and buzzers backup the critical gages. From the dash, Ken can switch on the fuel pump, fast idle solenoid, headlights, heater, and winch. Indicator lights report the status of 4WD, seat belts, ARB, emergency brake, and air compressor…. ”

one_bad_appleOne Bad Apple: “… The frame was lengthened 6-inches to incorporate a GM 4.3 V6 CMFI 195 hp at 4500 rpm engine with K&N Air Cleaner and Painless Wiring, a GM 700R4 with a manual shift kit, and a Dana 300 transfer case with CV driveshaft. With 4.88 gears, the final crawl ratio is 80:1. The front axle is a Dana 30 with an ARB Air Locker and disk brakes. The rear axle is a Dana 44 with a Detroit Locker. Four-inch lift springs, an off-road track bar, and Rancho 5000 Shocks control 33×12.50 BFG Mud Terrain T/As …..”

1946 CJ-2A Woodland, Ca **Sold**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE:  A reader reports this has been sold.

This appears to be a very nice rig and I think it’s a very good value given it’s got a stainless steel chrome windshield. I’m pretty sure the seller means sm420 tranny.  Interestingly, the very top pic on the bulletin board shows an external fan attached to the outside of the grille.   I don’t know if that’s a new feature or an old one, but it would suggest there might be cooling problems.

“Thinking about selling the wifes rig. She never drives it and Im tired of seeing it sit. $4000 obo.  200 miles on new chevy 350, hyper pistons, small cam, 1.6:1 roller rockers, 4bb quadrajet carb. 31″ tires, 95% tread.

Reader Builds — Troy’s nicely modified CJ-3A & race jeep

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, Racing • TAGS: .

troy_shipman_racejeep1UPDATE:  Troy sent along a couple pics of his race jeep also.  There’s one to the right and one down below.

Below is Troy’s street and trail CJ-3A.  It’s been modified in a variety of ways, including a Dana 60 in the back, a Dana 44 in the front and lockers all around.  Troy buys and sells stainless steel in the Northwest and is trying to decide whether to start adding more stainless steel or not to this jeep.  His biggest concern is if he starts dressing it up too nice, he’ll be too afraid to bring it out to the trails.  If this jeep does start growing stainless steel fenders, I doubt he’ll suffer too much as  Troy will still have an opportunity to get dirty playing in his flat fender racing jeep that he calls “Twisted”.

Also, if you seek any stainless steel parts for your CJ-3A or CJ-3B, Troy assures me he can get them for you.  You can contact him at jeepfrk50@comcast.net

1948 CJ-2A Littleton, MA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3800

The more I read the list of specs on this jeep, the more I liked it.  The drive train is a great combo for both on road and off road.  I think the addition of an overdrive would really complete this nice package.

“This is a 1948 Willys CJ2A with a Meyer power angle plow setup. I put the plow on 3 years ago and it was only used on my driveway.  This jeep has seen its share of off-road use so it isn’t a show vehicle. It is a very strong working Jeep that is a blast to drive on and off road. Body is a replacement steel tub, hood, fenders, grill, windshield frame and tailgate are original. 225 cu.in. Dauntless V6 from a 1970 Jeep. HEI electronic ignition.
SM420 transmission, 4 speed with 7.05:1 granny low first gear. Dana 18 transfer case with the large 1.25″ intermediate shaft. Dana 44 rear axle with Lockright locker and 4.27 gears. Dana 27 closed knuckle front axle with 4:27 gears.”
