“1942 Press Photo Jeep parades over Panama roadway under construction. This is an original press photo.

Panama: Under the supervision of the United States Public Roads Administration fourteen hundred men are at work constructing a trans-Ishmanian highway which is scheduled for completion (with all weather paving) by the end of March 1942 if the work is not hampered by rain during the present “dry season.”

An Army motorcade of “peeps” and “jeeps” traversed the colon-madden Dam section of the road on February 2nd transporting Army, highway, civil officials and press correspondents. They made the round trip from the Pacific to the Atlantic and then back. Concrete paving for the road is being placed at the rate of one mile of single strip each day. Concrete is carried by barge up the tropical foliage line Rio Gatun to it’s intersection with the highway.

In some places bulldozers and other heavy equipment have to make 100-foot cuts through hog backed hills and also make fills in sheer-dropping, water torn ravines. Photo shows-part of the “jeep” parade over a section of road which has not as yet been laid with concrete. The road is entirely within the Republic of Panama. Photo measures 9 x 7.25 inches. Photo is dated 02-06-1942.”

F-head Headers

• CATEGORIES: Features

The is very preliminary, but there may be an opportunity to have a small batch of F-head headers produced. I don’t know a price yet, but my question is, would there be 5-10 people interested in a header if the price worked out reasonably? These would also fit L-heads, though, as I understand it, they wouldn’t be all that effective in producing extra power for the L-heads. Comment below or email me at d @ deilers.com (no spaces around the @).

Parts Jeep Service Patch on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features

Maury spotted this unusual patch. Neither of us have seen one before.

View all the information on eBay

“100% authentic. I do NOT sell reproduction patches. Thank you. Patch came with some of the other items you are seeing us list today. very likely 1970’s dealership or even early 80’s, but considering the group of stuff it came with we are going with the 1970’s. Don’t try using the iron-on backing – it is too old and will likely destroy the patch.”

1953-cj3b-portland-ore

“One day in 2013, I was talking with a buddy and he asked if I was interested in a Willys Jeep and since I was thinking about a “project” car, I said yes. Well, I got this little gem on a farm in the Hood River Valley! I call it Taz Willy and he has won several trophies at car shows! But, as happens with time, I have purchased a travel trailer and will be doing more traveling so I decided to give someone else the opportunity to have fun with Taz.

Even though he was used in the orchard as a spraying machine, and stored for quite a while, he was in good shape and all the dried mud on his underside protected him from rusting! I stripped him down to his frame and painted it with frame paint to continue his protection.

The engine has been rebuilt by Portland Engine Rebuild using the original f-head engine block. It is the 4 cylinder stock engine. Engine has 925 miles – all road miles.

The transmission is the original– 3-speed with compound low. This required only replacement of fluid. I works good.
