Women Drivers … Are Jeep Rough-Riders

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine, Women & Jeeps

Just a few updates today …

The August 1954 issue of People Magazine did a two-page article on the women who drove jeeps for Willys Motors. It looks like they are testing a series of M-38A1s in the photos.

Junior MB 2/3-Size Toy Jeep Miami, FL $3000

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys, Website

UPDATE: TJ spotted one of these Junior MBs for sale in Florida. The original post at the bottom is from 2010.

The Hemmings ad below includes several photos, but it’s not clear to me which of these jeeps is the one for sale (or it’s just a reseller important the jeeps and reselling them). The photos are all from the manufacturer website.

The latter half of this video shows the jeep:

 

Original Post May 8, 2010: Junior Replicas website.  Pretty good replicas for a kids toy.  They offer a variety of vehicles besides Jeeps.

From the website, “Junior Replicas Mini-Veículos para Lazer S.A. produces in Brazil, exact replicas of classic vehicles, in a scale enabling their use by children over 6 years old. The mini-vehicles use a four stroke, 6,5 hp petrol engines and have specially developed mechanics for complete safety and long-lasting enjoyment. The bodies are moulded in glass reinforced polyester (GRP) and are very detailed and fully replicate the original full-size model.

“1947 Willys CJ2A Jeep with 1947 Bantam trailer. Experience the vehicle that started it all, completely restored inside and out. Every nut and bolt is either original or exact replacement (size, thread pitch, head configuration) comes with complete 11 piece multiple configuration canvas top and bows.

Has been driven occasionally, I’m getting too old to get in and out of this thing. It will go just about anywhere. 12 forward speeds and 4 in reverse (high and low range plus Warn Overdrive. 7 new tires (6.00 x 16 military) all worn parts replaced. It does leak a bit of oil (I’ve never seen a Jeep that didn’t) I have many spare parts and accessories that will go with the Jeep if sold at full price. I’ve driven this to 12,000 feet in the Rockies and it ran perfectly all the way up and down.

“I’m selling a vintage Willy’s Jeep. The vehicle is obviously a project. The hood, grill and fenders were taken off to rebuild the motor. The body does have some rust but the metal is orginal and still strong. Everything is still together as far as I know but I’m sure you will have to order a part or two along the way. This would make a great family project or an investment restoration project. The vehicle has a 3 speed manual transmission.

I do have a clean title. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to setup a time to view the vehicle.”

Technically it is a 1946 but registered and titled as a 1945 4WD, 3spd manual, has 130cc Ford 4-cyl., Navy grey paint, Warn hubs, odometer reflects only miles put on it when it was restored (30years ago). Custom canvas top with matching canvas on seats. This is not mine, belongs to my neighbor…84 year old retired naval fighter pilot. He stated frame, drivetrain, engine, hood, grill and fenders are original but the body is a reproduction, original was rusted badly. He drives it around neighborhood and gets his mail in every so often. Serious inquiries only. I will try to answer basic questions but can put you in touch with direct if needed.”
