March 1947? Universal Jeep in Industry Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I’ve had this brochure for years, but never got around to scanning it until now. It’s form 473A250, which might mean it was published in March of 1947. This brochure folds out horizontally with four panes.

1971 Movie “Venga A Fare Ilsoldato Da Noi” Poster **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

This poster includes a jeep driven by soldiers looking as if they’d just driven from the Italian movie version of M*A*S*H. Given M*A*S*H was released the year before in 1970, maybe that wasn’t a coincidence?

As noted at IMDB, “A girl is drafted due to a misunderstanding and this gives her the occasion to check on her boy-friend, whom she believes to be a womanizer.”

“Original poster measures approximately 140 x 200 cm (78″x55″), in conditions as in the photo.”

1942 GPW Bend, OR $15,500

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB)

Not quite all restored, as the data plates have paint on them a few other issues.

https://bend.craigslist.org/for/d/bend-antique-wwii-army-jeep-42/7199383190.html

“This authentic well-kept piece of history can be yours. This 1942 WWII Willy CJ Ford Jeep is a classic and has been restored and garaged for the past 20 years. Runs great, the Willy straight four engine was completely overhauled, like new, full canvas package, full set of manuals and maintenance guides and receipts. To the best research I have been able to do, this jeep was used here in Sunriver, Bend at Camp Abbott 1942-1944. Lots of fun to drive and has been entered in several military vehicle displays and parades.”

(04/17/2020) Nice looking restoration. It has a few cool extras (Hickey winch and ventilating windshield). My only quibble is that I wish the rear dually fenders were rounded rather than angled.

1946? CJ-2A? Bringhurst, IN $4250

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, DJ-3A • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $4250.

(03/12/2020) This shows that the DJ-3A windshield for the Koenig hardtop also will fit the Meyer CJ-5 hardtop (in this case it’s a CJ-5 half-top). To me this adds weight to my theory that the Koenig hardtop used on DJ-3As should fit CJ-5s. This jeep also has a DJ-3A body (cut side type) and grille, at the very least.

“Listing for a friend. Not my jeep. M38 running jeep serial number 66857 May 1952. Asking $5000. Contact owner at [hidden information]. Located in Alabaster, Al. I looked at the jeep and it is very solid and practically no rust. After consulting other jeep experts we believe it has a early reproduction M38 tub, but these early tubs did not have the cowl battery box or ax/shovel indents in the tub. Jeep comes with over $600 worth of new parts including a CJ wiring harness, manuals and new windshield glass. Would make a great parade jeep, 12 volt, she thinks the brakes were replaced? I did see new brake hoses. Jeep was in the process of being restored up to about 3 weeks ago.”

Oscar Mayer Wienermobiles

• CATEGORIES: Features

Mark shared this brief look at the Oscar Mayer Wienermobiles over the years (there were several others, including this 2011 wiener food truck). Of course, during the late 1950s, the company built a dog mobile atop an FC chassis. Perhaps, most surprising, is the latest version, one I hadn’t seen (I won’t ruin the surprise).
