Tucson’s CJ-5 Garbage Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

In 1963, the city of Tucson, Arizona, was looking to save money on garbage costs. That summer an experiment was tried whereby a CJ-5 towing three garbage trailers was used to cut garbage transportation costs. I could not find any information on how long the experiment lasted.

This first photo showing the jeep, trailers and how a trailer was dumped into a larger truck, was published in the Tucson Citizen May 24, 1963:

This article from May 22, 1963, published in the Arizona Daily Star, provides more information on the experiment:

A 1941 Attempt to Ban the Term “Jeep”

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old News Articles

This article was syndicated through numerous newspapers. So frustrated was one Captain with the multitude of definitions for the word “Jeep” that he warned soldiers not to use it and cited examples of why it was so confusing. This article is from the Johnson City Press out of Tennessee, November 14, 1941:

“As much as I would like to keep this I could use the money for my next restoration. I am in no hurry to sell so all lowball offers will be ignored. If your looking for a truly unique off road toy this is for you. Although it could be converted back to a street legal machine it currently is not so if your looking for something to drive on the street keep scrolling. It started off as a 1962 Willys cj3b.

After giving it a 6″ frame lift I had the frame hot dip galvanized which is why the frame looks to be painted gray. Motor is a 350 out of a 73 Vette +.030 with a off road cam. TH400 trans mated to a Dana 18 via Novak adapter. PTO and winch from a Willys truck modified to run off the back. Front axle is a Dana 44 out of a 75 chevy. Rear is GM 10 bolt out of a 84 chevy with Moser inner shafts. Front AND rear hydraulic steering are independent. Please do not blow up my phone with questions that can be answered face to face if you are serious. Thanks for looking”
