The Universal Jeep Booklet

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Old Images

The Universal Jeep Booklet was published in 1945. A copy of it just sold on eBay for $31, which is a good price, though it has a fold through part of it. a large number of the photos were republished in different publications and as press photos.

I realized that I hadn’t published all the pages of it yet. Below are the first eleven. I’ll get the rest up tomorrow:

1957 CJ-5 Moro, OR $2200

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: .

I really like this one. I think it could make a good project jeep. Looks like it has the white pointer 0-9 speedo. I just happen to have a NOS one of those …

“Neat project for somebody. Old CJ-5 was used in an orchard for years, so it has dings and dents. Missing passenger seat and windshield frame, has NOT run in years but it turns over fine. Pretty rare to find a Jeep project this old with original paint and all five original wheels. Still has the F head 4 cyl. and the floors & tub seem very solid.”

(02/15/2017) I don’t see anything that suggests the 1945 is in fact a 1945.

“These two beauties are project willys jeeps need to be restored and do not currently run. I have not tryed to start them since I’ve had them.I have one complete 1947 cj2a willys jeep with title. A 1945 cj2a willys jeep rolling chassis title in hand complete drivetrain and running gear,minus tub. I have 2 fenders ,windshield frame and a radiator for the rolling chassis. Both jeeps motors (go devil’s)turn over freely, but do not run. The 1947 has the head off to inspect cylinders which look good. Alot of new parts which includes motor gasket set gas tank and other parts totaling over $1000. Frames are patched over the years on both. The tube has bondo and some ugly metal work done to it… I was going to patch the tube with new patch panels and buy a new tub for the rolling chassis. Everything is there just needs to be restored or leave as is for a rat rod look. Asking $4200 which is a steal on these two old pieces of military/american history!!! Price is some what firm. Can deliver with in reason or extra cash I’ll deliver anywhere cash in hand. Any questions please call, if your reading this they are still for sale. Will consider trades for Chevrolet cars or trucks 2wd and 4×4. Any thing old really, selling because of loss of interest in them and to many project’s.”
