1974 CJ-6 Coudersport, PA $20,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6 • TAGS: , , .

Marty shared this customized CJ-6. He confirmed this was built in Pennsylvania. Both rear axles are drive axles, though one new carrier bearing is needed. The large side windows suggest the Meyer hardtop was modified, too.

“his is a 74 CJ5 extended to include a third axle. Runs rough at the moment but drives amazingly well. It is powered by a 79 small block 350 which makes this Jeep scream down the road. Very well built all original look steel interior and exterior no fiberglass. Has a stretched and modified steel hard top wrapped in vinyl and a steel half cap included but not in great shape. Also includes the tan bikini top for warmer driving. In the opinion of mine and others (mechanics) this is a very well built rig and can be left as is with minor work and still a one of one head turner in the world!! Needs a carrier bearing on the mid axle rebuilt to drive the rear axle and with that is a live three axle Jeep. Will consider trading for; Scouts, Range Rover, Land Rover, Land cruisers 43,45,or 47 Ford Bronco, Jeep CJ6, CJ8-Scrambler, pretty much anything old cool and definitely 4×4!”

1957 Swedish Fire Truck in Germany 16,500 Euros

• CATEGORIES: Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

Craig shared this 1957 Swedish Fire Truck for sale ion Germany. It looks in great shape. The price is just over $19,000.

https://suchen.mobile.de/fahrzeuge/details.html

1957-firetruck-germany10

Roughly translated from German:

A very rare treasure. Forget all the assistance systems and all the other bells and whistles that today’s cars have.

This is pure driving!

Swedish Willys truck from 1957 with 3.6 liter Super Hurricane 6-cylinder engine.

An old master mechanic did a lot on the car in just under 100 hours.
Main work: The front was converted to disc brakes with a conversion kit from kaiserwillys.com from America. That’s why 17 inch rims from a Dodge Ram are now fitted. The rims were turned out to match and powder-coated in black.”

A few misc. parts come with it, windshield frame, tailgate, some driveshafts and such. What you see is what I have.
Has original axles under it. Newer steering box. This could be a cool crawler.

“Wow this is cool – what kind of Jeep is this exactly? From Europe? South America? Is this Korean war era? Falkland Islands? Northern Ireland? These are the kinds of questions I get which is a lot of fun. If you don’t like attention, this is not the Jeep for you.

It started out as a retired postal Jeep (DJ5). I’ve since extensively modified it to be of roughly the same dimensions as the rare Willys CJ6. Frame stretched 18” with lots of hand fabricated body modifications, roll bars, etc. Custom safari top (the only top), new seats & seatbelts, Bluetooth stereo. I tossed the tired 4-banger and swapped in a stout Ford 302 & C4 automatic. Engine has 351 heads, 4bbl, new electronic distributor, water pump, radiator, exhaust manifolds, battery, etc. etc. Fairly aggressive cam, sounds great. Way more motor than this light truck needs, but it is fun.

Year? CJ-3A Tacoma, WA $4750

“I am selling my one of a kind custom Willys Jeep. This Jeep has a CJ3A front end with a custom stepside Willys pickup style bed.

The Jeep has 33” tires with front locking hubs. Jeep runs, but needs a new battery and fuel, possible the carb cleaned. I’m asking $4750 or best offer.”

German’s Re-style a Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images • TAGS: .

UPDATE: This post was first published September 25, 2014:

Joshua Regula-Morris has a neighbor who had an MB in Germany. The first photo shows him on his Jeep in 1946. The second photo shows the text on the back of the first photo. Apparently, some Germans restyled the jeep, resulting in photo #3. Joshua’s neighbor swears this is the same jeep. Before leaving Germany he sold it to a friend. You can just make out the shackles at the front below the bumpers. Unfortunately, there aren’t any photos from the side.
