  2. Blaine also shared these links for the teardrop Mustang, developed in the late 1940s. While many of us have seen these pics, what I didn’t realize was that the Mustang utilized some jeep steering parts. As this MotorBiscuit article notes, “McCarty wanted to build his car with existing components adapted to his unique vision. He decided that the steering from a Willys Jeep, a Continental or Hercules engine, and Spicer rear axles would be the basis for his car.”

(08/19/2023) Tom shared this CJ-2A with some type of sedan or truck top. If the grille is original, this is likely a 1947 or later model.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/310828624742465

“Willys Jeep. New brakes, master cylinder and entire brakes. Wheels blasted and painted and new tires and tubes. New seats with original frames. This Jeep has a PTO but needs the shaft. Runs and drives good but motor could use a rebuild. New gas tank and lines the body is rough but could be used depending on what you plan to do with the Jeep. Battery does NOT come wit it. Great to restore or just continue to use as is. The cab was added from an old truck many years ago and it works pretty good. This is your chance to own a classic Willys.”

Here’s an odd one.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1297866277600228/

“So, this has been in my family for quite a while. Believe my great grandpa ‘created’ this back in the 80’s and would mainly use it as a hunting vehicle. To my understanding mostly all the exterior is fiberglass, cab space is mainly sheet metal, engine and chassis are from an old jeep (willys jeep or jeep CJ) sometime in the 1940’s-60’s. Price is OBO, if you think you have any info on the chassis and engine based on the pictures let me know, I would like to learn more about it myself. Have the cylinder head and other parts but are in kind of rough shape as you could assume”

(07/01/2023) While it has three doors, according to the seller it does not appear to be a hyrail or Fairmont build. So, the history of it isn’t clear.

1954? Truck and Camper Durango, CO $5000

• CATEGORIES: Camping, Features, Unusual, Willys Trucks • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Mike shared this unusual camper. The shape of it reminds me of the late 1940s Book mobiles (or see below post). The box on this truck appears a little taller than the book mobile boxes, so this truck and the book mobiles may be unrelated.

The truck is listed as a 1954, but the grille suggests it is earlier. It’s unclear whether the camper on back is original to the truck (special order for example) or whether someone added the camper later. That said, the interior faux wood and carpet screams 60s or 70s to me. The “Jeep” radio would have also been added at a later date. Note the Warn hubs are IH branded hubs.

The jeep sports a “Rednor & Raine” Jeep sticker from Trenton, NJ, which as of 1965, was a jeep only dealer.  This also has a Princeton Theological Seminary parking permit, which is still an active institution.

It does have rust and some holes in places but the vehicle is 77 years old. lol, It’s dependable. It is what you will make of it. We love this old Jeep and had a lot of fun in it but just don’t have the storage anymore. The transmission is a three-speed with twin sticks for four-wheel drive, two-wheel drive, high and low range.. We have a separate engine block and parts on a crate for another motor that was given to us by a friend years ago but we never used it or had a need for it. Make an offer. 5000 obo. Will sell the Jeep and engine together or separately.”
