1950 CJ-V35U Fredericksburg, TX $6500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $6500.

(11/06/2020) This appears to be a CJ-V35U, though it has a few mods.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/3276821425746866/

“Our research indicates that this Willys Jeep CJV35/U is one of only 1000 produced and one of perhaps 100 in existence. In 1950, the U.S. Navy contracted the construction of 1000 Jeeps with deep water fording capability and special radio equipment for forward observation duties. Serial numbers ran from 10001 to 11000, making our number 10794 a late production example. The previous owner related that it had been used as a hunting vehicle on his ranch. As such, many original parts are missing, but many remain (hood, excellent headlight bezels, tailgate, etc.). All Naval identification plaques are also present. We recently installed a battery and fuel tank (tank was not original) to get it running, but there are NO BRAKES, making this an ideal project or parts Jeep to be sold AS IS.”

April 1970 Jeep Family Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This April 1970 brochure contains some good jeep photos. I’m not very familiar with the “2-Car Car” campaign, so I’ll see if I can figure out when it began and when it ended.

This jeep family brochure is Form 70-04, which to me suggests it is an April 1970 brochure. However, at the bottom of the brochure is written ” Feb-70′ “.

1946 Photos of Roy Harmon and Underwater Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

UPDATE II: Unfortunately, while the photo sold, the seller was unable to find it.

UPDATE: This photo shows two photographers riding through the water taking photos as Sgt. Roy Harmon, from Washington, D.C., navigates the jeep (named The Reluctant Turtle). Given it was taken in October, the water can’t be very warm. Below this photo are two additional photos that also include Roy Harmon from the same event.

“This is an original press photo. Bay Ridge, Maryland — Photographers hitch a ride to photograph the progress of the “underwater” jeep demonstrated by the Navy today (October 17). Sgt. Roy Harmon, USMC of Washington, DC, clothes in a Marine wading outfit, drives the jeep in 6-foot of water. The underwater operation is made possible by a waterproof kit, which contains an ignition system, waterproof battery, distributor and coil, and aviation-type spark plugs. Two periscope-like pipes serve for the air intake and the exhaust. The jeep, which cannot float, can cavort around in water 6-feet deep for a period of 45-minutes and will make amphibious operations much easier.Photo measures 9 x 7.25inches. Photo is dated 10-17-1946.”

An October 21, 1946, article in the The Morning Call (Paterson, New Jersey) provides some great additional details about the ‘submarine’ kit:

Clipping from The Morning Call - Newspapers.com

 

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

Original Post in 2017: The below photo was likely taken by the intrepid photographers pictured in the photos above:

As part of the post, Luis added the following comment:  “Its a true USMC jeep as seen by the use of the electric “Dynamo” windshield wiper motor which were used only on Marine Corp jeeps, these motors are quite rare and highly desirable for a true USMC jeep restoration.”

From the eBay ad: “1946 Press Photo Bay Ridge MD Sgt Roy Harmon USMC in underwater jeep. .This is an original press photo. Photo measures 9 x 7.25inches. Photo is dated 10-17-1946.”

1946 ‘King of Jeeps’ Berg’s Truck and Parts Company Ad for Engines
