At some point in 1963, Jeep News stopped adding a month to the printings, so we must use volume and numbers to delineate the various Jeep News issues. This issues, volume 9, Number 2 in 1963 is eight pages.

Page one has a neat photo of an FC-170 with an extended rear and an extra axle. That looks pretty handy! Page two contains some upcoming ads, along with a nod to some Argentinian jeeps. Page three shares the news of more jeeps in more movies, including “The Nutty Professor”, The Ugly American”, “Donavan’s Reef”, and “My Six Loves”.

Pages four and five contain dealer news. Page six continues the coverage of the Hatari! movie, this time internationally. Page seven shows police and police-dogs lined up in front of DJ-3As purchased by the Philadelphia police. Page eight covers some international updates.

    Dave, that FC-170 on page 1 with the “extra set of wheels” is 4-wheel drive. I wonder if that customer could have asked for 6-wheel drive.

    Notice the CJ-3Bs in Paris have “Hotchkiss-Brandt” nameplates above the radiator slats.

    I have heard of French military Hotchkiss Jeeps (many are painted as wartime MB/GPWs in the UK) but not the Brandt part.

    Under the 3B photo is says Hotchkiss-Brandt, S.A. I think the S.A. means South Africa.

    Steve, i suppose they could have asked for six wheel drive, but I expect the extra cost wouldn’t have been worth it. My guess is the extra axle was for weight rather than off-road capability.

    My jaw just dropped when I saw p. 5. That’s my grandfather and dad receiving the dealer award, W.V. Morgan, Senior and Junior. Thanks so much for posting these. I have been watching these posts for a while now hoping something like this might show up!

    Is there any way you could email me a high res photo of that part of the page?

    That’s great! I am glad you spotted the pic. I will email you a pdf of the newspaper later tonight when I get to my computer.
