• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles

Tyndall Field in Florida is credited with creating the first “jeep range”, a place where jeeps carried objects for gunnery practice. Here are a few pics and articles about “jeep ranges”.

This photo appeared in the Atlanta Constitution Sun newspaper on June 06, 1943:

A year earlier, a model plane was attached to a jeep in the first iteration of a jeep range:

“1948 CJ2A; These originals are getting harder to find! Built with PRIDE by hands of the USA!!!! Complete restoration completed in 2015—original (frame, body, engine, heater, wheels, transmission, bumpers, steering wheel, shifter, etc).

The original color was gray with white wheels, similar to the color Canyon Glow which is an original WILLYS color. Some enhancements… tub dipped in lizard skin, 6 volt system to 12 volt, back seat added, “cigarette lighter” plug for phone charging, front LED turn signals (LED strips), Mastercraft tires LT225/75R16 M+S for a nicer ride. June 2020 compete engine inspection and tuneup. Replaced were head gasket (studs/nuts), thermostat housing, intake manifold, exhaust manifold (studs & nuts as well) and fluids (over $2000 spent).

Smaller hardware/parts were replaced as needed. I do have a box of some original parts replaced to include the original odometer. Tons of fun! We drive this WILLYS around the area with confidence.”

1945-6 Willys Jeep J-Logo Business Card on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features

Given the “J” logo, this was likely printed in late 1945 or early 1946. I can’t remember seeing the vertical-jeep portion with lines like that one has. I’m guessing that rather than using a two-color printing as was usually for this logo, the lines were added to create the visual separation.
