April 1958 Jeep News

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: .

Good news. I’ve done a deal to purchase thirty issues of Jeep News, along with around 70+ Jeep Service and Parts News. Some are late 1950s, but most are from the early to mid 1960s.

Page one of the April 1958 eight-page issue of Jeep News highlights the introduction of the Mule, though calling is “space age” seems over the top. The front page also includes an announcement for the third-annual jeep rodeo in Yakima, hosted by the Yakima Ridgerunners.

Page three shares the news from the recently completed Jeep Cavalcade from Hemet to Borrego Springs, California. Page four announced the third-annual Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, Jeep Derby. Page five has some images for the Lake Erie hunting club.

On page six, don’t miss the modified jeep used to transport mobile homes (and attempt to meet some local laws. Speaking of transport, lower on page two is a modified buggy and trailer that carried hunters through and over local swamps. Page seven is a full page article on jeeps and salt water anglers.

Missed Out on this Unusual Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Artists/Drawings, Features

Likely from around 1958, this illustrated brochure is 24 pages. The front page included the title, “Man moves forward on WHEELS”. Unfortunately, I did my final bid too soon and lost out at the end. It was dumb on my part. Below are the pages posted to eBay. Hopefully, the buyer reads eWillys and is willing to send a scan of the booklet.

1946 CJ-2A Project Boeren, TX $8450


This has been available for a while.



“Posting this ad to see if anyone is interested in taking over a CJ2A frame of restoration. Would be a terrific father/son project, which was my intent but my boy is too young right now. This project includes pretty much every single nut and bolt needed to build a CJ2A. I have probably invested over $13k in parts from various sources so my loss your gain. I have a 100% new body (most of it still in shipping bubble wrap), rolling frame and chassis, original engine, transmisssion, etc. Included is an entire trailer full of NEW IN BOX parts to go with this project. Wiring harnesses, rebuild kits, brakes, clutches, etc, etc, etc. Included in the deal is a fuel injected 4.3L vortec engine I was considering installing. The whole project is currently stored in my enclosed trailer so delivery could be potentially arranged depending on proximity. Clean title in hand. Looking for cash. Low ball offers and rude comments need not apply.”

1960 M-38A1 NEKAF Bethlehem, PA $8500


This is for sale on eBay. Thanks to Bill for sharing it.

View all the information on eBay


“There just aren’t many of these available. STOCK MILITARY.
Clear Pennsylvania title. Has been stored in a barn: perfect for restoration. ………………This M38A1 uses a waterproof 24 volt system. That has not been modified. Two new 12 volt in-series batteries, their original cables, “T” ignition post, floor-push pedal ignition, voltage regulator, starter, generator, internally housed points, cond, cap, wires and sealed plugs are all in working order: some new. The vehicle starts, runs and drives. The brakes, clutch, transfer case, HI/low trans, linkage cables, emergency brake, steering gear, suspension (needs shocks), and low- mile military tires are all are in good working order. Throttle, choke, crankcase vent handles and cables operate as designed. An aftermarket fuel pump, f/p regulator and hoses were added however the original fuel pump, hard lines, fittings, mounts and cables were left in their original positions: disarmed. A new fuel tank was purchased but not hooked up……….
Corrosion exists at the side panels , below the spare tire, some at rear floor behind the tank. An experienced restorer inspected the vehicle and stated the body is nice and solid and all existing corrosion is basic and easily reparable. …………

Everywhere else: the hood, (an original shovel is mounted beneath), fenders, windshield, grill, interior front floor, rear deck, wheel wells and dash (some corrosion lower left) are in good condition. This is a Dutch Army NEKAF with that nation’s” Koninklijke Landmacht” modifications intact: The Dutch Army radiator, auxiliary power outlets inside and out, the ‘guarded’ side mounted marker lights, blackout lights and speedo in Kilometers.

MOTOR: This 134 cu in Hurricane 4 cylinder engine compression tested at 70,65,70,70. Not Good. These should be around 130. The plugs are black (but not wet), it runs too rich and throttles poorly. I have run it through all three forward gears in both high and low and reverse as well. (The Borg Warner T-90 operates well). The diagnostic on the motor halted this individual’s restoration project. An engine tear-down and rebuild is required: something not covered by my “MOS”, but perfect for a genuine military vehicle restorer. I have videos of this vehicle running. …….Also included on this NEKAF is an Army M-222 signal generator, whip antenna, antenna mount, and an unrelated handset. The original working canvas top (good. Dirty but no rips or wear spots. All snaps and fasteners function. The rear window is in excellent condition), folding frame, support bars with all straps intact installs perfectly. A jerry can, mount, rear mounted spare are included. Tires are period military and like new. The seats front and rear are original. Spares include new fuel lines for the original fuel system and new red primered tank, an additional 24 volt generator, fording hose, 1 gallon of correct paint, 2 new drive belts, new under-fuel tank felts, grease tubes, wheel cylinders, extra side mirror and arm, wheel chocks, hydraulic jack etc
