Light Duty Rescue Truck Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE: Dan’s got a good thread related these trucks at the Old Willys Forum.

Here’s another rare brochure that I scored on eBay for very little. It’s the first I’ve seen this eight page brochure for the light duty rescue truck. One great thing is that it has a list of everything that is supposed to come with it, plus a picture showing how it was organized in the back.

Unusual Hardtop from Uruguay

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

Hugo, our eWillys correspondent from Uruguay, filed this report. He spotted this strange jeep, possibly a CJ-3A, with an unusual hardtop. He would have taken more pics, but its proximity behind the US embassy made snapping photos a little uncomfortable. So, he was in and out quickly!

I shared the photos with Fernando Vidal. He wrote back, “Actually, you can see ANY of weird adapting on vehicles in Uruguay… Uruguayans are customization specialists! Everyday on the roads and streets of Montevideo we use to spot many strange things on wheels of every kind. Uruguay never produced cars or trucks, which have always been imported as an expensive commodity, and its replacement parts were usually hard to find. The long term result is that they were used to the maximum (it’s common to find vehicles from the 40`s and 50`s being used as daily drivers). Creativity led to some horrendous (sometimes really funny) “frankensteins”, of vehicles from different decades stitched together on the most bizarre ways… “

MAK-A-CAR Aluminum Jeep on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models

Not sure about the price, but an interesting item. I thought there was also a  listing for this that included the box, but now I can’t find it.

“Ultra rare assembled vintage MAK-A-CAR aluminum Jeep model kit in great condition for its age. Info is scarce on these, but found a site which indicated these kits were produced in the 40s. The first image below is of the box, found on google images. NOTE: The Jeep in this listing does not include the box.”

1943 Photo of Jeep Next to Plane on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

The caption of this one is interesting. It reads “Two kinds of jeeps”, a reminder that both planes and jeeps were called jeeps. Of course, the command car was called a jeep by some in the Army, further complicating the history of the name.

“News Agency 1st Generation AKA Original Press Photo Size: 6.75×8.67 inches (paper size) with some minor variation”

1946 CJ-2A Old Jefferson, LA $6500


This could be a nice rig for the price.

“This is a great running 1946 Jeep Willys. Body is in great shape with very minimal rustish spots. Comes with the soft top in the pictures. Converted to 12v, new starter, new break master cylinder and I am currently changing out the fuel tank to finish with the must does to sell it at this price. Please keep in mind that this is a 46 so it is going to take some tinkering with from time to time. Looking for someone that is wanting a fun collectors item. This is something that I do not have to get rid of so i need to get pretty close to this price.”

1951 CJ-3A Fenton, MI $21,950


Brian, seen this one around Fenton?

“This is a jeep survivor vehicle. All parts except for the gas tank are original. It has been titled under the same name since it was bought new in 1951. This is not a restoration. This is an original vehicle that has been maintained in working condition throughout its life. It is in excellent mechanical condition and includes such details as an original inverter for AC power. The vehicle was bought off the production line in Toledo Ohio. It’s been it’s early life in an apple orchard. It has never been driven on the road. It is more than just a Jeep it is a piece of Jeep history.”
