Some Interesting Getty Images

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

I happened upon some Getty Images, so thought I’d do a search on Getty’s website.  They have some cool images, though a variety I have seen in other places.  Note that some of the descriptions and/or dates aren’t quite right.  For example, the “date created” for the Willys MA image below is Jan 1, 1941.  However, the Willys MA wasn’t delivered until April of 1941.

5. A Rare Farm Jeep Photo (note the hood and windshield are inscribed with Jeep rather than Willys).  This original photo is of the CJ-2 X26, identified by Fred Coldwell on page 165 of his book PreProduction Civilian Jeeps. He notes that for advertising purposes, a 2nd version of this photo was created, with the grille of the CJ-2 airbrushed to look like a standard CJ-2A grille (the mb grille and brush guard are wiped away).
