1973 Johnson Enterprises Catalog

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Catalogs, Features

I hadn’t heard of a parts reseller named Johnson Enterprises, a company out of Orangevale, California, until receiving this catalog. The side and corner panel skid plates are something I’ve seen on some jeeps, but never knew who made them.

The catalog is pretty small, so the company didn’t offer too many products. All the pages of the 1973 catalog are shown below:

Late Model CJ-5 Kelly Hardtop

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

UPDATE: This model of top was also sold under the Sears brand. This 1977 catalog shows the top, but doesn’t indicate it was manufactured by Kelly. I’d assume that the different shaped door in the catalog pic has to do with that vehicle being a CJ-7.

I actually used it to plow snow a few times. It’s in rough shape, but wouldn’t take too much to make it nice. Even when not running for over a year, it fires up right away. The engine needs some tuning, but I think it’d run well with some TLC.”
