    I had one of these coloring books as a child back in the early 1950’s, What caught my eye even back then, was the Orange & black license plate, same shape and color as New Jersey plates of that era. Some things you never forget, early childhood memories stat with you for a lifetime.

    Vernon: to be fair, you have never liked Pat Brady. And, it is an artist’s rendition…

    Mike: I thought about getting it, but at least one of the pages had been partially cooored.

    I can see the appeal of this… (says a guy who will seldom admit to having a mint condition coloring book of his favorite childhood TV show…Whirlybirds).

    Seriously, Like the “PIC” poster above, I never did understand the armoured car look to Nellybelle.

    I know the Jeep was sold a few years back when the Rogers Museum collection was disbursed, anyone know where it is now?I

    And is it a military Jeep or CJ-2?

    John B,
    The “armored car” look was to hide a driver, when Nelly Belle would take off and drive it self. Pat would run after Nelly Belle. Scenes such as this, took place mostly at the end of each episode.

    John B: I don’t know where it is now, but it sold for $110,000 at that auction including auction fees. It’s a CJ2A.

    If I remember correctly, part of the reason for the big price was that it was auctioned as part of a fundraiser (but I could be incorrect on that). Unfortunately, my emails with the previous owner (Pam) from the early 2010s are long lost.

    The last time I saw the jeep for sale was in 2016 (http://www.ewillys.com/2016/10/24/nelly-belle-for-sale/). In the comments section within that post, Terry mentioned that the “original” Nelly Belle was apparently rebuilt, so how original the jeep remains is unclear. (more on the jeep from the 3B page: http://cj3b.info/Siblings/Nellybelle.html).

    There was also a copy of the Nelly Belle (labeled Nelly Belle II) that has been on and off for sale since 2010. I don’t know what happened to that version. http://www.ewillys.com/2020/02/26/1946-cj-2a-nellybelle-ii-cave-creek-az-15000/
