1947 Win a Jeep Station Wagon Ads

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Willys Wagons

UPDATE: This ad originally appeared in 2013, but recently I was able to find all three ads.

In 1947, some Queen Anne Jingle Bar Wrappers included the opportunity to complete a jingle to win all kinds of contest prizes. It appears there were at least three different contests and each included a chance to win a Station Wagon.

1. This ad is on eBay, but the date is not listed. The Jingle goes:
JIMMY GOT A JINGLE BAR
HE LOVED EACH LUSCIOUS BITE
SAND HE, “QUEEN ANNE’S JINGLE BAR
___________________________” (fill in the final line)

1947-queen-anne-jingle-bar-contest-ad

2. This Ad was on eBay with the following contest circa September 1947:
MARY BOUGHT A JINGLE BAR,
SHE THOUGHT IT REALLY NEAT.
NOW SHE GETS ONE EVERY DAY,
___________________________ (fill in the final line)

1947-09-queen-anne-jingle-bar-contest-ad

3. This ad appeared in the November 30, 1947, issue of the Sunday Star. This Jingle was different:
FOLKS HAVE FOUND A JINGLE BAR
TASTES JUST AS GOOD AS PIE!
MILK CHOCOLATE, NUTS AND CARAMEL
___________________________ (fill in the final line)

1943 Jeep Tires Photo in England on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

Building 2,000 jeeps in 14 days sets an unofficial record.

View all the information on eBay

“This is an original press photo. Somewhere in England — A heavy maintenance company of U.S. Army Ordnance obviously had America’s ability for automotive production in mind when it decided to set up a Jeep assembly line at a depot in England. On a trial order from Army Ordnance Chiefs for the assembling of 2,000 Jeeps they established something of a record within a fortnight — with Jeeps rolling off the assembly line at the rate of one every 3 minutes. Following pictures show how it’s done. After wheels are unstrapped from the interior of the Jeep, they are brought to this point for inflation of the tires.Photo measures 9 x 7.25inches. Photo is dated 10-28-1943.”
