1943 MB Totnes, England £13,000

• CATEGORIES: Features, MB, Sedan-jeep • TAGS: .

This modified jeep has benign storage for about four decades. It’s supposedly a Metamet prototype, so, if true, this should be of interest to Metamet fans.

1946 CJ-2A West Marin, CA $5000

(02/05/2022) This appears to be a 2A body with a Willys stamped rear body part grafted on to the back. Yet, it is missing a few 2A features in the dash and lacks a steering column hole. I’m scratching my head over this odd body.

1947 CJ-2A Bozeman, MT $2500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A • TAGS: , .

Along with some rust, this CJ-2A has all kinds of mods. I’ve unaware of any factor “cowl cover”; that said, the place I’ve seen these cowl extensions most often is in the northern Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana areas, so maybe there was a dealer(s) in those areas offering custom cowl creations? The hardtop looks to be an aftermarket Koenig half cab.

1964 Wagon Traveller Katy, TX eBay

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

Mike spotted this modified Traveller for sale out of Texas. The serial number put this at only 7 units later than Scrambleer’s (Dan) Orange Traveller (see his wagon at the lower part of this 2014 post). Given it is so heavily modified, it would make a good platform for doing something creative. It would surprise me if this was a former Border Patrol vehicle (but I see no gov plate).

View all the information on eBay

“We believe this is a 1964 Jeep Willys Traveller based on the interior and exterior trim. It has been modified as shown.

It has a V8 and manual trans, 4×4. It runs well. New BFG Tires.

Would make a good hunting or other off road touring rig. It does not have a title. It comes Bill of Sale only.”

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $1500.

This modified CJ-5 has an extended rear. The seller is unsure of the year, but it seems most likely a mid 1960s CJ-5 given the lack of a tailgate stamp and no faux battery box lid.

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!”
