• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

John’s selling this running and driving FC.

https://cars.ksl.com/listing/6937337

“1958 Jeep Forward Control. FC 170.
Runs and drives, but needs work.
All complete and not too rusty considering what most FCs look like.
Has a front bumper in the bed.
Comes with a brand new windshield.
Cab has a front bracket installed to allow cab to tilt forward.
6 cylinder hurricane engine.
This is a project vehicle that will need lots of work, but it’s a great start. I looked for years before I found this one and they are getting harder to find. This is a good solid runner and is mostly complete, including the 9 foot bed.
It came out of California when I bought it and was there most of its life..
Please text with questions or to come take a look. Price is not firm, but please no low ball offers.”

Wood Jeep From India

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

I bought this wood jeep on eBay. It’s solid wood with a good weight and some fun designs. One instription suggests this was made in India. A message on the bottom suggests this was purchased or completed on October 07, 1998, and was either for or from someone named Robin.

1941 Article Highlights Bantam’s Complaints

This August 07, 1941, article in the News-Herald out of Franklin, Pennsylvania, underscores that Harry S. Truman was going to “blow the lid” off the “lobbying” actives of the OPM as a result of American Bantam being “frozen out” of a jeep contract. Truman showed them, lol.

Jeep-Herders: The Movie

• CATEGORIES: Features

UPDATE III: Brian left this comment: “Thanks to the work of Eric Steadman at the Serial Squadron, Planet Picture’s “Jeep-Herders” (1946) has been restored and can now be seen in its entirety for free on youtube. See link below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owUmWZIHJRU
You can also help support the preservation of serials by purchasing a DVD copy of the restored Jeep-Herders at the Serial Squadron website: http://www.serialsquadron.com

A quick look through the movie on youtube and one of the jeeps looks to be a Ford GP MT Tug (6×6). There’s also a Ford GP and what looks to be (based on the sides) the original Ford Pygmy.

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

Last update April 12, 2018 — UPDATE II: See some still shots from the filming that show a couple Ford GPs.

UPDATE: This post once contained information on the El Dorado Jeepherders jeep club and their association with the placer miner and his pan ornament. I have moved the that information to this link.

1945-jeep-herders-movie-graphic-lores

JEEP-HERDERS MOVIE:

In 1945, Planet Pictures, a new venture founded by two stuntmen, produced it’s first movie: Jeep-Herders, a full-length movie shot in color on 16mm film. Planet PIctures’ goal was to produce movies that could bypass theaters for play in schools and churches, as 16mm projectors were very common at the time and much cheaper than the 35mm projectors. In addition, there was growing interest in 16mm for large audiences, as an industrial film on 16mm was shown to a crowd of 6000 in 1945. (click on this link and scroll down a page).

The plot of the movie was pretty pedestrian, “A wildcat oil outfit is seeking to take over the ranch belonging to Pop Martin and his son Bob and daughter Helen. Bob sends his ex-army pals a “stay-way” message, which brings them on the double. The WW II vets use their jeeps, first for a cattle roundup, and then to round up the gang of crooks, including the crooked family-lawyer Thatcher, brains of the gang.”

1941 Article: 1300 Miles in a Jeep

It sounds like this report and soldier had a very uncomfortable ride in the “roman rack”. I am a bit surprised that the jeep garnered so many laughs. Note the BRC-40 in the top pic. The article appeared in The Morning Call, out of Paterson, New Jersey, November 22, 1941.
