This is the eight-page issue of Jeep News Volume 10 Number 2. Page one shows an image from the 1964 Chicago Auto Show and I’m surprised I don’t see any FCs or DJs, which suggests (to me) KJC was already planning to phase them out. This display strongly suggests that the future was the Gladiator and Wagoneer’s. Also on page one is the announcement of the purchase of Studebaker’s Defense Products Division, which I didn’t know Kaiser used to springboard into the large military vehicle contracts. Page two continues the Chicago Auto Show story.

There’s an interesting photo on page three showing a CJ-5 surrounded by Tonka toys at a Woolworth store. That sure looks like it was a cool display! Page four shows a pic of a custom hunting ‘”jeep” produced by Dick M. Campbell Motors ‘Jeep’ dealership out of Alice, Texas. I’d like to know more about these creations and how many they produced.

Page five highlights another Jeep movie promotion, this time with Rock Hudson and his movie “Man’s Favorite Sport?“. The movie naturally includes a Wagoneer. Pages six and seven include photos from across the US and a few from international locals. Page eight highlights Ken and Fran Jones, who love their Wagoneer and even used it on a ninety mile an hour chase after a stolen car, successfully capturing the thief.

    The CJ5 center stage with the model climbing into on page 2 might be a Tux absent chrome. Body colored windshield frame, steps and steering wheel with WSW tires and full “J” Roulette wheel hub caps. What’s left of a Mark III sans chrome.
