The second photo and caption are from nine years later and 15 miles north of Roseburg in Umpqua, Oregon. The February 26, 1962, issue of The News-Review published this Umpqua Tractor ad for tractors and jeeps. You’ll note the rare site of an FJ-3A on display along side an FC.

    The old Leever Motor company building here in Medford still stands today and even though it’s been rennovated, it still has that architect look of the 1940’s. It’s now a local brewery.
