Mac Wood’s Dune Shooters

• CATEGORIES: Features, Postcards

They aren’t jeeps, but these rigs surf the Silver Lake sand dunes with passengers, and have been doing so since 1930. I’ve included some post cards of older dune tour vehicles below. To see all pics, or to schedule your next dune ride, check out Mac Wood’s Dune Rides here.

    I’ve been going to Silver Lake my whole life. Great place to see every Jeep imaginable. Mac Woods has always been mostly International Harvesters, and they still have some cool old ones sitting around. The new fleet is Ford. There also use to be Bill’s dune rides. They had mostly Dodge power wagons. The 70’s was a great time to grow up at the dunes!

    Probably not a problem back then, but I imagine Liability insurance premiums would be huge. I assume the new vehicles have seat belts and roll cages.

    Hi Mac,

    Request your assistance. Am attempting to track down a 1947 CJ-2A jeep my grandfather Henry Whittall purchased brand new in Eugene Oregon and sold it 3 years later. I have the original “Operation and Care Manual” but does not have any other information as in VIN or stock number. I have the license plate number. Called OR DMW and they can provide a list of automobiles my grandfather owed but he himself would have to request the list (due to HIPAA and PII they will not release to me). Too late for that, he passed away in 1980.

    HI Jeffrey,

    I wish I had better news, but without the VIN, it is very difficult to track down old jeeps. They were so often modified and painted (especially in the Pacific Northwest) that that even if you had a photo or two of it, identifying it might be impossible.

    If you have other questions, feel free to email me at d@ewillys.com

    Craig, I have a soft spot for people movers and an even softer spot in my wallet that so far has prevented me from obtaining a people mover, lol 🙂
