Barney from Barney’s Jeep Parts sent November 1961 edition of the Jeep News our direction. The FJ-3A makes a big splash with a variety of images on page 4. Several Jeep Clubs, including California’s Auburn Jeep Club, Denver’s Mile-High Jeep Club, and Washington’s Trailer Breakers Jeep Club get  mentioned. One article highlight’s Buddy’s win of a Surrey and Sailboat from the Del Monte Contest and includes an image.

There’s also a mention of photos and writeup about the Jeep Jamboree in the December 1961 issue of Argosy Magazine, but I cannot seem to find the issue on eBay.

    Tina Louise of Gilligan’s Island fame on page six!!!

    The shot of the actor in a Navy uniform…(I have seen the film, can’t say I remember him..just Pat Boone, Barbara Eden (second ’60s sitcom reference) and Buddy Hackett.
    So, is that “Navy” Jeep really Navy?
    It’s not a M38A1, so it’s a CJ-5.
    I understand the military did buy some CJs for non-combat (or state side) use, so any experts around to say if the serial number is legit?
    Probably not.
