Unusual Ambulance Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Unusual • TAGS: , .

This unusual ambulance jeep was shared on Facebook. I’ve tracked down an additional photo that shows it’s got a standard gas inlet on the side, so I think this may have been a CJ-3A.

This vehicle is located in Vincennes, Indiana (still there??). I’d really like some better photos of this. I’ll offer an Alaska Or Rust T-shirt and my everlasting gratitude if someone could get some more pics of this unusual rig.

1950 Wagon/Tender Grand Rapids, MI $25,900

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $25,900 (starting price on eBay).

(03/12/2017) Cool build. It’s by far the nicest “Tender” build I’ve seen.

“GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1950 Jeep Willys Wagon for purchase. Before the SUV craze officially took over in the 1990’s, there were sport utility vehicles in different shapes and sizes decades before sparking debate of which was the first true SUV. One of the candidates is the Willys Jeep Station Wagon that was an all-steel body that combined passenger comfort with a tough 4-wheel drive platform Jeep is known for. The success of this model led to the Cherokee and the Grand Wagoneer giving it a leg up in the SUV founding father debate.

This 1950 Jeep Willys Wagon is a complete custom build and a really cool, unique ride. The Willys Wagon came out of Wyoming and went through the complete project. The wagon body was completely treated and converted to have a truck-like flat bed. This vehicle is powered by a Chevy 327ci V8 engine and 350 Automatic transmission. It has many comfortable features you would find in a custom including air conditioning, front disc brakes, power windows, Cd player/stereo, bucket seats, center console with cup holders & power outlet, lined flat bed, tonneau cover, and much more.

This custom build is in excellent condition inside and out, and cruises down the road similar to a new vehicle. If you are the kind of person that likes something not everybody has, this is a great buy for you! Please call or email for more details!

1956? Jeepney San Diego, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features, Willys Trucks, Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3800.

(06/19/2017) The Jeepney doesn’t run. The oil filter mount isn’t a triangle nor is it a circle. It’s an oval. What’s that from? It also has an interesting dash, too.

“This is for the Willys collector who thought they had everything. It’s an awesome project and you’ll be the hit of the show. Very complete and unusual. Does not run. Do not contact with offers to help sell. No trades.”

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: .

Lots of custom jeep here.

“Selling my 1951 CJ3A. It has been re-bodied out of aluminum, so rust will not be an issue. The frame is clean and this beast is powered by a 4 cylinder turbo Diesel engine. This winter the jeep received new BDS 3″ lift springs, a 4 wheel disc brake upgrade, Borgeson steering upgrade for improved performance off-road. The jeep has new plastic racing seats for easy cleaning and a removable steering wheel for easier entry and exit from the jeep. The jeep also has a set of new 31″ Lauflenn off-road tires. The jeep is very nice and only needs a new owner. I have a growing family and need a few more seats in an off-road vehicle. Price is $5000 obo. The only trade considered would be a Subaru Forester or outback.

Jeep comes with snowplow that will need fitted if you want to use it. Comes with pump and power directional.”

Photos of Shriner CJ-2A Parade Jeep Truck on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images • TAGS: .

There are four different 2×2 negatives of this jeep from similar angles.

“Original Photo Negative from the Tulsa, OK area from the 1950’s. There was no information about the photographer, I figured out the location and era based on information in the images of the set I am listing together (Car tags and signs and recognizable landmarks) I have “inverted” the image, so you can see what a print will look like. The quality is fair to good, having some graininess. This is a good quality, albeit amateur image.”
