I got this July 1959 issue of Jeep News for free, but it is an incomplete and damaged issue. On page one, the “Millions Will See ‘Jeep’ Vehicle Displays …” article continues on page four, but page four seems to be missing. So, this issue may be six or eight pages in length.

The last page of this edition might be the most interesting. On the lower left is an article showing an FC-170 modified to handle parking an maneuvering big trailers. One the lower right of the page is an article about Tootsie, a South Dakota coyote that became the official state animal, who got to ride in a jeep station wagon on some of her trips.

    page 2. Palmer Motors on Washington Ave in Houston TX. This would later become Woodie’s Jeeps, the legacy of which extends to our business today at Barney’s. Woodie’s Jeeps decals can still be seen on the back of many CJ3Bs and CJ5s to this day in Texas. We are doing research on the early Houston Jeep dealerships Bonner’s, Palmer and Woodie’s. These papers have been very helpful. Anyone with information on them, feel free to reach out to us. – Barney, Barney’s Jeep Parts LLC
