Old School Jeeping Photos

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old Images Jeeping • TAGS: .

I ran across these photos today posted by a guy who grew up in the Skyway Cliffhangers Jeep Club, a club based in my hometown of Renton. The photos below highlight the kinds of paint jobs I remember back in the 1970s. As a kid, part of the fun of going to playdays and jeep conventions was to see all the different paint schemes (colors, designs, and accents), tires choices, cage architecture, engine experimentations, and other modifications. You can see lots of old PNW Jeeping photos here:

Jesse noted that, “It was originally built in the 70s by my friend Gary Jack. He worked for the US Postal Service his whole career. When he retired, the tired FJ3 was also retired, so it went to scrap. At the time the FJ3 Postal FleetVans did not have the approval of the federal DOT and especially they did not have the approval of California DMV, because of the right hand drive and the seated / standing up driver operation. He was able to sneak out the scrapped pieces of the FJ3 that he had driven during his career, and a few others, enough to recreate and build a dream that he had during his career, to build a chopped top race truck. He did that. Gary and the FJ were a regulars at Riverside Raceway for a lot of years. In the 80s to the 90s this same FJ3 became a top NSRA street rod.”

https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/cto/d/1953-jeep-willys-cj-3b/6591873748.html

“Fun to drive 1953 CJ-3B. The is the civilian version of the M38 U.S. Army Jeep. This jeep has a new front disc brake conversion, so it stops great. New wheels and mud tires. New carburetor and electronic ignition for reliability. Seats have new covers and the vehicle has been vinyl wrapped, so the company’s logo can easily be removed. The electrical system has been upgraded from 6 volts to 12 volts. New headlamps and headlamp switch, and dash light. 3 speed manual transmission and transfer case. The F-134 engine has had the valves recently adjusted. The roll cage and front seat belts are there for safety. If you want a weekend cruiser, this is your vehicle. The original wheels and brakes are available. However, the original wheels will not fit over the disc brakes. Asking $6,800 based on $7,000 on Hagerty value of “Good”.
