UPDATE: **SOLD** Was$1000.

Seems like there is some value here.

“I bought this beauty 18 months ago with great aspirations of having a “fun garage project” for the same model and year of vehicle I learned to drive in way-back-when. Great intentions! Unfortunately, I have had practically ZERO time to work on it and my wife wants her garage back. Long-story-short….the first 1k gets it and I will have peace in the my home. By the end of this coming weekend, Sunday, 2/17, if it’s not gone, it gets donated to Kars-4-Kids.

What you get….1959 Willys CJ5 with a 225 Dauntless 6 cylinder, 3 speed, 4wd. I bought new drum brakes, brake cylinders, and master cylinder and those all go with it (I have receipts….$700). I drove it for about 10 miles right after I bought it and I realized the brakes were about to go…..and they did. I just never did the work on installation. Also, a new steering wheel….nothing wrong with the existing one other than it has some wear…for you to swap out. Also included is a Willys parts catalog. Engine runs fine. Tires are all fine. Just has NO brakes.

If this is for you, you need to trailer it home….remember it has NO brakes. I have clear title. Clock is ticking.”

“Real deal WWII army jeep, looks like it was used as a highway dept vehicle after it went surplus. Ford GPW body on a Willy’s MB frame. Basically straight tub but needs a gas tank well. Missing the right front fender. No running gear. Frame is good except for a crack that will need further welding but holds for now – see pic. These are easy rigs to restore and a blast to drive when you’re done, and they take up no space to store. Or, start with this and build whatever 4×4 you want! Clear title.”

Just a handful of posts today.

So, I’m supposed to fly out of Virginia on Thursday AND I’m flying standby (hey, it’s free). However, there’s one hitch. An unusually massive snow fall/blizzard hit the Pasco area (well, a good portion of Washington State), which has caused airport and interstate closures. Another heavy snow issupposed to arrive theretoday and additional snowwill arrive Tuesday and Wednesday.

The question is, will I make it home if I leave Thursday? I can probably make it from Richmond to Minnesota (that’s my transfer point), but whether I can make it from there to Pasco remains to be seen, as the closed airports will likely force passengers to filled up subsequent flights.

I like the adventure of it, not knowing if I will get stranded in Minneapolis or not.Stay tuned!

Mario shared this article on Facebook from the May 25, 1941, issue of the Des Moines Register. A report describes his experience riding in one and imagines how it might be used. I find the claim that it would go “87-miles-an-hour–without opening it up” a stretch, but that was likely just a propaganda plug.

This summer of 1942 article highlights some of the confusion surrounding the jeep name and might be one of the first documented instances of someone claiming that GP became jeep. As I’ve argued, I see no reason to believe that’s the case.

UPDATE:There’s another Hammock State Park postcard on eBay. The original post is from 2013.

“This is a very cool black/white postcard that shows a jeep “Conducted Tour – Highlands Hammock State Park in Sebring Florida” It is unused, but has a hand written date of 1955 on the back. It is in excellent condition.”

View all the information on ebay

========================================================================

Original Post from 2013:
Highlands Hammock State Park ran tour trains from at least 1948 – 1962. As the first photo shows, they started with a CJ-2A. It looks like a set of benches on a platform with wheels. By 1962, the park shifted to CJ-5s. It also appears they added sides. I images that was safer. These are all from the State Archives of Florida.

“Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this fully restored 1959 Willys Jeep CJ-5. After WWII, Willys smartly capitalized on the success of their military Jeeps and began producing a ”Civilian Jeep” – or CJ – and the rest is history. This ”Universal Jeep,” as it was marketed at the time, was a huge hit and over 600,000 CJ-5s were produced from 1954 to 1983 – but few have been restored to this standard.

This CJ-5 was used as a grounds service vehicle for a drive-in movie theater in Cleveland, Ohio before being discovered and purchased in 2010 by a gentleman who embarked on a frame-off, nut-and-bolt restoration to exacting standards. The original tub was deemed to be too far gone to practically restore so a new steel tub was sourced from Willys-Overland Motors in Toledo, OH. The original fenders, hood, grille and windshield frame were in good condition and were retained for originality. The frame was media blasted and detailed. The correct President Red paint is excellent outside, inside and under the hood and the body is super straight.
