1952 4 Wheel Drive Booklet

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

 UPDATE: This was formerly a post about this booklet on eBay. Here are the final scans of that booklet.

I would guess this is an early 1952 booklet. The “W” shown on the back likely puts it after the big push in 1952 to shift towards the Willys marketing umbrella, but not late enough to list the 1953 475 model truck.
