Jeep Wanted

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Am looking for a good Hotchkiss or similar, must be mechanically sound, solid and original, I’m based in Liverpool so hopefully someone is thinking of parting with theirs.

Please pm or email me if you have anything or know of anyone who wants to sell one, don't mind recommissioning work but nothing too major.

Nick

Still on the lookout for a jeep alas, please feel free to contact me if anyone has one for sale or knows of one that might be.

The one I got a heads up on above, unfortunately the chap was asking too much for it for me .

cheers Jerry, I agree that prices seem to have crept up but question how many actually get their asking price as they seem to be for sale for a very long time!

Decent ones at reasonable prices do come up so it’s a a question of biding time and being patient by the look of it.. and trying to be quick off the mark when one does come up... or even better and get the heads up on one before it gets to market...😁

There' a Hotcho on FB up for £15,000 done in US Navy Grey. It looks very clean & in decent condition. It's in Ashford, Kent. If you contact the vendor, he may haggle on the price? If you dont ask, you dont get! ;)   ( I have absolutely no connection )  M.

Just come onto Milweb no connection with the seller https://www.milweb.net/classifieds/view_large.php?ad=97940&cat=13

For that sort of money, I would expect it to come with Canvas Tilt & supporting framework!  Also has ONLY one Civy Windscreen wiper!...There is a chap called Robert Uren who buys & sells a LOT of Jeeps on Milweb. & has his own webpage. Realistic prices too. There is a contact phone number on his page. He offers to talk about anything you wish to. That is Jeep related.

I have personally never had contact with this Gentleman. & no connection whatsoever. But it might be worth your while giving him a call perhaps? It will only cost you the cost of a call, & who knows? It may well yield the result you are looking for?

Your time to be a Jeep Owner may well come soon?......

After the PMs announcement to ban New Car Sales in the near Future. A lot of People will panic & Dump classic & restored Ex Military Vehicles on the Market.

I experienced this recently myself. I was in the Middle of negotiations with a seller over an Iltis. It came down Two & a Half Grand from his original asking price. The deal was verbally (Email) agreed upon. But when I asked for photo's of the vehicle underneath. Which I felt was entirely reasonable for a 4X4 Vehicle. Which picks up Mud etc underneath. & flings it into nooks & crannies that could hide rust etc.  He later came back to Me & cancelled the deal. As He couldn't be bothered to do this!....

The vehicle ended up for a while on 'That' auction site & the price came down twice to a VERY ,VERY reasonable level! it was also on Make me an offer, which I was just going to do. & He panicked! The auction suddenly ended, as another interested party got in before Me. Made him an offer which He accepted, But marked it down as withdrawn from Auction. 'As there was an 'Error' in the Listing'!...…..Greed cost Him a small fortune!.....

So you may very well pick up a Jeep in the not too distant? Just Hang in there! ;)

Hope fully there's one in sight, just spoke to a chap who apparently bought an MB in 2006 with view to stripping down repaint (in gloss!!!!!) as something to do in retirement .... BUT  he never retired and realistically won't get round to doing it now.

I won't have full details for a couple of months (I can wait that long!) but gather it's still a 6v, could do with rewiring (don't know why?) and wings bolting on as he had some engine work done when he got it... Tub solid, tyres were new I'm told.

Hopefully he won't want silly money for it as I'd have to ship it out to get the wiring done, and then give it a bit of basic recommissioning to get it up and running again....

Keeping my fingers crossed....

I’d go for it as well. I bought mine with no brakes, no electrics and I managed to restore it in my garage.

As Jerry says, the wiring kits are a sinch to install

I’m sure there’s lots of help on here and other forums if you need it

Cheers guys, I’ll hopefully give an update in a couple of months on it unless something else turns up in the meantime. I’m greatly encouraged by your feedback... hope he doesn’t want an exorbitant sum for it!!

thanks again
