Green River Valley Jeepers Club Plaque **SOLD**

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $500 (best offer accepted).

The Green River Valley Jeep Club launched in 1965. It was a well-known club, especially since the Brooks were heavily involved in the PNW4WDA. I vividly remember the last Green River Valley Jeepers playday I attended (likely due to the kissing of a girl). I was a newly temp-licensed driver, so was 15 years old (so 1980). It was held just north of Enumclaw along some power lines; No doubt the area is surrounded by homes now. But, back then, it was rocks and mud and water holes.

“Old & Original. We believe this to be one (1) of only two (2) known signs handmade by the club’s founder 50yrs ago (circa 1970s).”

    I think I remember going to that play day. It wasn’t a long drive from home and on the power lines. I was 10 at the time

    Bill: Thanks. That was a quick sale!

    Troy: If I remember correctly, the dirt road under the power lines was the main access to the events, with events occurring on either side of the power lines. I remember camping in a tent with Tim and Steve Carter. I vaguely remember Bob Brooks manning a big dozer.

    I have the Jeep that Brooks’ drove in that club — the ’42 Willys. It doesn’t have an engine in it, but there is one in the garage that was reportedly “ready to drop in.” I have someone who wants to buy it, but I don’t know what it’s worth and am wondering if someone can help me determine the value of the Jeep with engine.

    Hi Lisa,

    I probably saw them with that jeep, but it’s been so many years that I can’t remember it. My clearest memory of Bob was him on a yellow dozer.

    I can help with pricing it, but I can only provide a range. The value on a vehicle that has set and had the engine removed is difficult because of unknowns that can’t be tested easily (are the brakes any good? Do the transfecase, front or rear-ends need rebuilding? etc).

    The history is neat (for some of us older jeepers), but likely won’t play into any additional value.

    Feel free to email me any pics you might have and questions to
