Schramm Generator Cypress, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Industrial-Welder-Generator

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1000.

This Willys powered Schramm generator looks in good shape. I’ve seen other Willys-Schramm products, but not anything this large.

“Old military schramm generator with a 40’s willys 4 cylinder jeep engine. I’ve had this for about 9yrs. It has been kept inside the whole time. I’ve installed new rims/tires and added a spare tire and mount.”

The Wonderful Life of Wilbur the Jeep by Wilbur Schram

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features

You might have seen one or another of these images illustrated by Normal Rockwell, but did you know there’s a story as well?  Published in the January 29th, 1944, edition of the Saturday Evening Post, the story was written by Wilbur Schram, who went on to be called the “father of communication studies” in the United States. The story appears to be a fun, fictional tale of a jeep named Wilbur and his exploits.  Unfortunately, I could not find any copy of the full text anywhere on the net.

Here is the best snapshot I found on Flickr about the article.
