1944 vs. 1947 Photo Comparison of St. Lo, France

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

These two photos were published in the Sullivan Daily Times on June 6, 1947, which was the three year anniversary of D-Day. One photo shows St. Lo, France, in the summer of 1944. The other, taken from about the same location, shows St. Lo in 1947. After wasting far too much time examine the town via Google Earth, my guess is that the bottom photo was take just below a castle near the victim’s memorial, pointed south with the La Vire River along the right hand side.

1947 Jeep Caravan’s Coming to Town

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles

This July 08, 1947, article from the Sullivan Daily Times announced the upcoming arrival of the Jeep Caravan to the town of Sullivan, Indiana. It was one of four Jeep Caravans traveling the United State at the time.

The caravan consisted of eight jeeps. One was the CJ-2A fire jeep. Four other CJ-2As sported attachments, including an arc welder, a generator, a compressor, and a line of hydraulic lift implements. Based on the pic below, it looks like 2 wagons and a truck, brand new to the line-up in the summer of 1947, rounded out the caravan.

“Upon the arrival of World War II the U.S. military needed a vehicle that could withstand anything and drive through anything. Ford, Willys and Bantam all submitted prototypes to the government, but the Willys MB was far superior both in durability and mechanical strength with its 60 horsepower flathead 4 cylinder that far exceeded the U.S. governments requirements. The do anything, go anywhere vehicle named the “Jeep” proved to be exactly what it was made for and more. After the war, Willys saw a need and a market for durable utilitarian vehicles for all the G.I.’s returning from the war so in 1946 they introduced the civilian model of their famous MB that helped win the war: the CJ-2A.

Offered here is a very solid example of a 1947 Willys CJ-2A. Finished in its original color of dark green, this 2A wears an older restoration but is a great Jeep to drive around town or for show. It comes with its original 2A split windshield and original Willys tailgate. The windshield currently installed is a CJ3A windshield for better visibility while driving. Mechanically it runs and drives very well and would be great for top down or even windshield down driving. No signs of rust or rust repair, the tub is original to this Jeep which is seldom seen today. A great Jeep and a lot of fun.”
