A Couple South African Jeeps

• CATEGORIES: International, VEEP (VW Jeep), Scamp, Others • TAGS: , .

Marc forwarded these two jeeps for sale in South Africa. The first is a Gobex Jade Jeep, a kit jeep that is no longer produced. Marc’s trying to find out what happened to them.



The second jeep is a Badger Jeep, A veep-like kit car with a VW engine. What’s most interesting is that the tires are Desert Dog PCV Tires, yet the tires don’t include PCV like other PCV tires I’ve seen.

1960 FC-150 Petaluma, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $550. Desert Dogs PCV on a FC?  That’s a rare sight.

“A later model 150. It has the wider track and the cast iron weight in the rear of the frame. The cab has the usual rust spots, the floor, lower rear corners and above the windshield. The bed is in reasonable condition, but no tail gate. The engine is loose and ran a few years ago. I never drove the truck so I do not know the condition of the transmission (three speed) and transfer case. The rear end is a limited slip. Included is a spare front axle from a CJ Jeep. It is a project, but it is all there.”

Next Updates Sunday Evening

• CATEGORIES: News • TAGS: , , .

Ann and I arrived safely in Pasco after a sunny/rainy/snowy/windy day driving through the panhandle of Idaho, then west to Pasco. We spotted and photographed a couple jeeps, ate some good food and visited with family; so it was a complete day!

More tomorrow on this possible CJ-2L Bruce spotted. Note rare Desert Dog PCV tires (not that they are in good shape).  They have a tighter tread than the standard Desert Dog tires.
