August 1960 Article Noting the Formation of the PNWJA

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old Images Jeeping, Old News Articles

This August 1960 article in the Longview Daily News out of Longview, Washington, notes that the Armstrongs, members of the Trailbreakers Jeep Club, chaired the two-day convention that resulted in the formation of the Pacific Northwest Jeep Association (Iater changed in 1965 to the present-day PNW4WDA — Pacific Northwest 4-Wheel Drive Association).  Note that the article refers to the association as the “Pacific Northwest Jeep Club Association”, but a decision must have been made to drop the word “Club” from the name. (some historical PNW4WDA info on the Webfooters page).

1960-08-02-longview-daily-news-formation-of-PNW4WDA

August 02, 1960, Longview Daily News

The Trailbreakers still exist and were one of six charter clubs in the Association. In order of formation (or incorporation), I believe the six charter clubs were the (1) Yakima Ridge Runners, (2) Vancouver Four Wheelers, (3) Longview Trailerbreakers, (4) Brush Busters (?), (5) Tacoma Webfooters, (6) Seattle Jeep Club. (The Brush Busters out of Portland were formed in early 1958, but I haven’t confirmed they were at the convention, so please correct if I’m wrong).

The Tacoma Webfooters have a particularly unusual name. The story goes as follows: “It was time to name the 4th jeep club [ed. note I guess they didn’t know about the Brush Busters]. Who’s got any ideas? Burt Severeid said, “How about the Tacoma Webfooters Jeep Club? Oh, the complaints poured in about how silly that name was, but no one else came up with anything else, so it stuck!! The 4th jeep club in the northwest was to be called, “The Tacoma Webfooters” , with Bruce Cole as the first president.”

========================

Original Post from 2016: This is a great photo from the very first Pacific Northwest Jeep Association Summer Convention, prior to being renamed the PNW4WDA.

March 1950? Wagon Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This brochure titled “Designed to Meet More Needs of More People” has a form number of SW73MI-SCM-350. It’s *possible* that the “350” marks a publish date of March 1950, which is why I’ve marked this a 1950 brochure.

1950 CJ-3A Easton, MD $6700

Appears solid.

“I am selling my 1950 Willy’s CJ2A. It is MD titled a 1950 CJ2A even though the 3A came out in 1950. I found this jeep literally in a barn over 5 years ago and have done a tremendous amount of work to it making it road worthy again. It has the L Head 134 “go devil” 2.2ltr engine with a Kaiser Supersonic head on it which I believe added more compression and horsepower. It has the spicer 2 / 4 wheel drive transfer case with 4 high and low.

The transmission is a 3 speed with reverse. I rebuilt the Carter WO carb a few years ago added new fuel pump, water pump. Radiator hoses thermostat and belts. I added a roll bar , grab bar and seat belts. Seat cushions are tan leather. Swing out tire carrier holds spare and a vintage fuel can. I completely re-wired the jeep and added a vintage turn signal to the column. All lights and gauges work. Brakes were rebuilt a few years ago and work fine. Vintage Warn locking hubs. Runs and drives fine”

“Listing for a friend not on FB. Message me your number and he will contact you ASAP.

1948 Willys CJ2a “Lefty”. They only produced these for a short period in 1948. No one seems to be clear why they machined this version of the 2a with the spare tire on the left. Some say it was Jeep’s way of complying with a law certain states had at the time. Others say it is for agricultural use for state municipalities. This is a rare option that will make you stand apart from the crowd. The small production numbers makes it even more rare. The Jeep isn’t running because of low compression. It has a new fuel, fuel pump, rebuilt carburetor. Brakes will need to be fixed with new master cylinder. Tub has usual floor pan rust”

With 3-on-the-tree and 2WD it sounds like a DJ-3A.

Has the correct hand brake, but incorrect gauges. Has the correct front end, but incorrect rear end. Has the correct 2/3 1/3 seats for a convertible model. Has the incorrect windshield.

1961-cj3b-upperco

“Frame off restoration. Has been meticulously taken apart sandblasted/cleaned painted and rebuilt to be kept original. A lot of new parts, and extra parts. I have tons of photos from start to finish.

It took two years to restore, and around $15,000 in parts and supplies. Asking $15,000 willing to negotiate. Note: The carb. will need to be tuned, and when I restored it I left the brakes alone all except the master cylinder which I replaced. My brakes have no pressure now so I have a leak somewhere.

I was going to buy the whole brake line kit and replace the whole kit and kabootal but I havent yet. Does come with extra parts that are original to the vehicle like Willys inscribed hood and tailgate, carburetor, fuel pump, transmission, transfer case, shift tower, heater, and other odds and ends. You can spend about the same on an ATV, or a UTV, but they will depreciate, and you can’t drive them on the road leagally. So why not own a piece of history”
