  3. Military CJ5 jeep

    1970 military jeep for sale. It has a full MOT and NO advisories. Free historic tax, The side curtains were replaced with a John and Mary W set and the old set are included with the spares coming with the jeep. The jeep also has the sought after vented windscreen, basically, an inner opening windscreen like the original MB/GPW jeeps. The jeep had an agreed insurance value last year of £8500 and lots has been done since then. I have reduced the price for a quick sale. A fair price for this jeep is £7500 but I am Open to reasonable offers. I would consider swapping for a Vauxhall Viraro Combi van or the Renault/Nissan versions. Please e-mail georgelvl@outlook.com or call mobile 07716694255 after six. Come on, make me a decent offer my next project is waiting! Thanks, George

    Hi Mike, PM sent
  6. 4 inch Bedford/Foden indicator/brake lens

    Just thought of something. Early set ups used the glass lenses that screwed into the body part (sorry, forgot what it's called). I'm not sure which way the later lenses fitted.

    Thank you John
  8. Yes this may be stupid but an eBay seller is selling the above mentioned and it has the 2.5 screw on fitting. Does this fit the standard army Landrover/Bedford screw fitting. I would have said yes but I need it confirmed before I buy them. Photos attached Help appreciated. George

    Informed of another local paint maker, Alpha Paints of South Shields. Recommended by classic car owner.
  10. Military CJ5 Jeep

    My 1970 jeep is for sale. It has a full MOT and NO advisories. it is free historic tax. The classic car insurance is pretty cheap too! The details are, this 24 volt military spec CJ5 Kaiser jeep built in 1970 and exported to Switzerland for their armed forces. When released from service, it was bought by a Netherlands military vehicle dealer before ownership in the U.K. I have fitted electric wipers but I have kept the vacuum wipers if you want to keep it original. I have fitted new fuel gauge, a new oil pressure gauge and sender unit, new plugs and all the electrics have been checked over by a qualified auto sparky and mechanic. It has a full winter canvas set, five very good NDT tyres, two new batteries and serviced. The side curtains were replaced with a John and Mary W set and the old set are included with the spares coming with the jeep. The jeep also has the sought after vented windscreen, basically, an inner opening windscreen like the original MB/GPW jeeps. The jeep had an agreed insurance value last year of £8500 and lots has been done since then. I have reduced the price for a quick sale. A fair price for this jeep is £7500 but I am Open to reasonable offers. I would consider swapping for a Vauxhall Viraro Combi van or the Renault/Nissan versions.

    It gets even better! Albany Motors, Camrex chugoku and hopefully Morrell too! As a Washington lad I'll check out Camrex, Morrell and Albany Motors and take it from there. If my jeep doesn't sell in the next few weeks the paint pot comes out. Nothing wrong with the paint work but olive drab does it for me! Anyone wanna buy my jeep ?
  12. Olive drab paint manufacturer

    No it isn't Tor paints. Tanfield Lea rings a bell. Albany Motors is a good idea. I used to go there years ago to collect parts and I saw the old owners military police jeep. Also a lad there was assembling a jeep tub on a wooden template on the floor. They also had a SWB armoured car up on a ramp. It was ww2 era but that's all I know about it. They just might have some paint lying about. Thanks for that. George

    Hi and thanks for the info. I knew about Marcus but this company is very close to me (or was) and I could get a same day order. Also they were very good on prices. George
