Jeep truck willys
That must be what they have into it, and we all know that’s not what you get out.
For me to think about buying it, there would have to me the removal of a zero.
And for that kinda of money I want a tailgate
it will fetch close to that.. but nobody here will be buying it
Not in this neck of the woods. I'd be surprised if it brought more than $10k locally.
ok so let the caveat be that it will sell for over 30K where a martini costs $25.. or to somebody who pays $25 for a martini..
Or knows what a martini is.
Speaking of Martini-Henrys, anyone bought one of those restorable relics from IMA-USA?
Not the cleaned ones now, that's no fun.
not for me, but i have a type 99 arisaka ('42 or so - not last ditch), has anti-aircraft sights on the 2000m flip sights, mum has been ground as most have. Also have a small japanese flag (white with red center) about 18in or so on the long side, and a small 'lapel' pin about 3/4" by 1/2" with a gold star, and writing on the back that says something about bravery in battle on an island (w/o records of the islands, I guess it's hard to translate).
I'm looking for a period correct bayonet for the type 99.
After I find the right bayonet, I'll likely then figure out a way to auction it / sell it as a package. I don't really collect japanese pacific theater stuff.
I 'had' a brit enfield from '43 once. loaded up some 303 rounds, off to the range and kachang ... it has headspace issues. Well, the brits were pretty clever in their battle-expedient design, and had heads that replaced on the bolt to help with excessive headspace. Mine already had the longest bolt head. boom, boom, and what? looks like the cases are stretching mid-body, then boom and one split horizontally. New brass, full length resized... YIKES.
SO, I sold it as a wall hanger / gunsmith special, needing headspace dealt with. Sold the dies and brass remaining separately to someone else.
Yeah, but I have seen ZULU several times, so iconic a film.
Never had a taste for Japanese arms at all. They never caught my eye so there's nary a Nambu or Arisaka in my collection.
But the venerable Lee-Enfield, YES.
Bought several No.4s way back when they were $100-$200 give or take and surplus .303 was all over the place. Picked up some but not enough Greek HXP and old cordite Mk VII ball and some South African. Figuring now I can get one of the Lee Loaders and just neck size my brass.
Only one failed the no-go test and it had a #0 bolt head. Found a #1 and went on my merry way. Haven't shot them in years but am preparing to remedy that.
Got a few Mosins too....'cause they were so cheap.
Yup, that's a purdy truck, but priced WAY out of my league!
powder blue belongs on a early mustang . not a willys
For that kind of money for that pickup, I'd expect a chrome front bumper and grill bars.
