===================

Originally posted April 10, 2019: During WWII Brook Stevens developed a couple different Command Car concepts. All the pics of these can be seen at the Milwaukee Art Museum’s site.

1. The first one is a 6×6 vehicle. It was made into an actual vehicle. I don’t know what happened to it. I’m pretty sure I have a press photo fo this vehicle somewhere, but I can’t seem to find it. This very well could be on the same platform as other 6x6s of the era.

These two photos of the M-274 Mule were posted to the Toledo Region History and Memorabilia Facebook Page by Nelson Shaffer, who found the photo at the UAW Local 12 Office in Toledo. I’m not sure why this has a placard for the 1/4 and 1 ton trailers on it?

1976 J-10 Racer Caldwell, ID **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s, Racing

Bill shared this former racer that just sold on eBay for $4,049. and featured on Barnfinds.

1976-j10-caldwell-id7 1976-j10-caldwell-id8 1976-j10-caldwell-id9

“Vintage racing Jeeps aren’t around every corner, making this listing pretty unusual. Here on eBay is a 1976 Jeep J10 said to be a Baja racer, bid to $2,025 with no reserve. The vehicle is located in Caldwell, Idaho, and this tip came to us courtesy of T.J. The seller’s ad is unfortunately short of details, so we’ll have to fill in the blanks as best as we can. We do know the Jeep J10 started out under the Gladiator name, a vehicle that was produced from 1962 through 1988 in one form or another. By the time this Jeep was made, the two-wheel drive option had given way to the much more popular four-wheel drive. The paint scheme indicates Marlboro as a sponsor; the driver’s name is Mike Honcho and the co-driver is Gator McKlusky. Mike Honcho was the Playgirl-posing alias of the Cal McNaughton Jr character in Talledega Nights. Burt Reynolds played the Gator McKlusky character in White Lightening, a movie produced in 1973, but the movie car was a Ford Galaxie, not a Jeep. The truck is set up to tow behind your race trailer.”

“1949 Jeepster. I owned this Willys Jeepster 10 years ago and sold it. I just bought it back but driving it 5 miles home the oil line broke. I got home and found the person had installed a copper line that broke at the flange. It still ran but rattled with RPMs. The guy I sold/bought it from had rebuilt the top end. But I think it now needs the crank at least examine if not turned. And new bearings. It still runs. Needs correct interior. It has top bows and interior panels. It was a Shriners car out of Oregon when I first got it. So interior is not original. I had planned to restore it but decided I would rather have a 60 to 72 C10 or Ford.”

Transportation Parts Co. “Seal Test” Hubs

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

UPDATE: More on Transportation Parts Company thanks to Barney Goodwin of Barney’s Jeep Parts.

Barney wrote, “I hope this helps for your question on Transportation Parts Co.  I put together a little display. Those of us in business who have older inventories have Transportation boxes peeking out at us on the shelves. Shown below are several vintage items from our inventory including a whole tray of gauges.

IMG_4561

The name SEAL TEST® is owned today by someone in Europe who produces quality parts supplying to dealers. An example is the shiny box to the right behind the tray.

In our library we have several of their catalogues and can be valuable quick references which are very accurate compared to some today. Inside the catalogue shown in the back of the display and which I’ve put in a ring binder for frequent use, I have copied the introduction which gives a good, brief history of the company in their own words.

IMG_4564 The vintage belt buckle is a promo from Transportation.

======================

Original Post November 27, 2022: This photo was posted to Facebook by Quinton. These private-labeled “Seal Test” Dualmatic lever-style hubs were sold out of the Transportation Parts Co, a jeep parts reseller out of Huntington, New York.

I’m sure someone knows more about Transportation Parts (or even dealt with them in the past).

Hobby Lobby Toy Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

John let me know that there is another Hobby Lobby toy jeep. Made of metal, it is 10.5″ long, about 4″ wide and long, which is a pretty good size, and currently half price at $12.99. The grille is a little different, probably to avoid trademark issues. It is reminiscent of the Italian Campagnola: http://www.ewillys.com/tag/campagnola/

“1959 Willys FC170. Complete non running with title. Engine turns over but has Marvel Mystery oil dumped down the spark plug holes to prevent seizing during storage. The transmission shifter easily goes through all the gears and the tcase shifts as it should. The truck does have rust as it was a grounds maintenance vehicle for many years and it is from the 50s after all. I do still have the snowplow and it is included in the sale. Also included is a spare roller without a body. It has a Ford V8 a Willys transmission and tcase and the axles. It also has helper springs, heavy duty reinforced bumpers and bed braces should you really want to build a heavy FC truck, say to haul a vintage camper or such. I have new in box a 12v conversion and tune up kit along with a new in box complete wire harness. I would be willing to do a partial trade for a 241OR transfer case for a Wrangler, or an overdrive unit or a rear 540 PTO box for a CJ5.”
