Hey, A-TEAM....One of my fellow co-workers who doubles as a jeep parts, hunter, tracker for me, found a plow that has a tag that says JEEP on it. I think he told me that it is a V-Type plow. The guy wants $50 dollars for it. Man, when it rains, it pours!

Rick, should we let Gary in on our little secret?

I especially like the "FREE" option...the "See through Barns" comes in handy too. Much better than the old blk&wht J/F4000





Would this be what it is?

Hey Doug, I did'nt realize how expensive the batteries are for the Jeep Finder 8000. But, a guy has to have them otherwise, I would have to rely on plain ole gut instincts....      Not sure what the plow looks like, it will probably be next week before I can look at it. Thanks for posting the pict of the types of Meyers plows.

Rob, I'ma J/F dealer...I could probably trade you one for a nice 2a...as long as the original taillight and turn markers are present 

Rick, I'm nearly as excited to see the pics of the plow as you are to find...post up when you get it!

OK guy's, I just bought a 2 blade bottom plow. Don't know anything about farm implements so maybe someone from the A-TEAM can help. I won't pick it up until next week. There are 2 pieces with this. Both have a brass tag rivited to each piece. The one on the plow says..
TRANSPORT MOTOR COMPANY
JEEP FARM MACHINERY
SERIAL NUMBER 453.....The tag on the other piece says JEEP FARM MACINERY also, but I did not read the rest of the tag. I think the other attachtment  somehow is pinned  to the frame under the body. What can I say, it said JEEP on the darn thing, so I bought it....

Rick, click the link and scroll way way down for this info, there's a little more than I qouted below.
Sounds like an awesome find!

http://www.film.queensu.ca/CJ3B/SerialNos/OB54SerialNos.html

As for Maywood, remember it was CKD, so if they knew how to assemble
a CJ3A, the switch to CJ3B should have been painless. I also expect
you 'could' find that the majority of Maywood vehicles may have been
provided to the Transport Motor Company or TMC based in Sacramento.
They distributed the whole West Coast with Jeeps and Jeep Farm
conversions. I think they had the exclusive rights to West Coast

Willys Distribution at that time.

Hey Doug! Thanks, I will check the link out. I should have taken my camera with me today, but I wasn't going to check out this plow until next week, but my fellow co-worker that told me about this plow, told me today, that I better get over there and make the deal with the owner today, because someone else was interested in that plow also. Cost me a $50 bill for it, but I thought it might be a neat little addition to my Jeep parts...I will Post picts next week when I pick it up.

Cat, I still have my old diviner rods...I'll do  a side by side comparison on my "hunting" trip today. Hvae to deliver my step dads deer stand to southern Iowa for him today. This involves about 100 miles of back roads both ways.

I'll be driving "Big Woody" on this trip...hope he doesn't scare off the little Jeeps.

Where's Rick with the pics of the plow?  I'm no good at being patient 

Bill, Can I be your friend?

Rocnroll, The Deuce had "Big Woody" painted on the doors when I bought it...The girls at work have tried thier best to make up every joke you possibly could to do with it's name when I drive it to work..."Doug has his Big Woodie out" "Can we ride your ...."

Just never seems to get old...LOL

Doug, I am picking up the plow sometime this week. Also, it looks as if I won't be able to pick up the early 2A parts jeep this weekend like I had planned. The owners wife is ill, and I did not want to bother them, so I guess it will have to be another day. I went over there Saturday to look at it though...the vin # on the tag says CJ2A 18217. Has a clamshell horn with SPARTON stamped in raised letters. The screws were still in the dash around the ignition switch, but no coil. I'm hoping to find a few more parts lying around....

We hope to see all of ya'll in October. MG
