1954 Kaiser Willys Sales Promoter Bulletins on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

This is the first I’ve seen of these Kaiser Willys Sales Promotor bulletins, though it is unclear how many bulletins are provided. The ebay ad includes pics of the cover, a foreword, and issues number 1 and number 3. I’ve added additional ones found on the web at the bottom. I don’t think there is a whole lot of jeep info (seems more car oriented), but still interesting.

Apparently, these KW Sales promoters is a carry over from Kaiser Frazier, which also had a similar program. A CD of the KF promoters can be found here: http://circlekf.com/KFNut/forsale/sp.html

1950 Jeepster Prior Lake, MN $7850

• CATEGORIES: Jeepster

Some good bones for a Jeepster project, but does have some floor rust. Thanks to Bill for sharing. Price is negotiable.

https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/jeep/jeepster/2639650.html

“This solid 1950 Jeepster has been parked in an airline hanger since 1982 an owner parked and never used after that this is a basket case but very solid body for sure less the four floor pans. The engine is tight at this point and I’ve been told that everything needed to complete the restoration is in the vehicle less a few minor things that I have discovered. Same owner since 1959 I just lost interest in the vehicle, the photos tell a story for the most part and I as a collision professional I’m selling this for a good agent friend of mine who is unhealthy and doesn’t enjoy the selling process I looked closely at the jeep today and impressed with a solid body and it looks to be accident free, four-cylinder three speed and the keys are with the vehicle ”

Kelly? CJ-5 Hardtop Shelbyville, IL $250

• CATEGORIES: Parts • TAGS: .

Seller indicates this would fit a 2A, but it would do so poorly. The top is disassembled and a little rough, but the price seems good. Based on how it is disassembled, I believe this is a Kelly hardtop.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/442005044762914

cj5-hardtop-shelbyville-il1 cj5-hardtop-shelbyville-il2

“Jeep hard top which needs restored. Pretty solid and all the glass is in it. Have metal doors to go with it but need restored as well. The door glass is there. The top and doors were disassembled to restore but got a different top, so did not finish the restore. This is a FCFS and no holding. If it is listed then it is available and when it is sold it will be marked sold. I believe this top is for an older jeep CJ5 but will fit others. I have had it on my CJ5 but I am sure it will fit a CJ2a as well.”

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

Originally posted April 10, 2019: During WWII Brook Stevens developed a couple different Command Car concepts. All the pics of these can be seen at the Milwaukee Art Museum’s site.

1. The first one is a 6×6 vehicle. It was made into an actual vehicle. I don’t know what happened to it. I’m pretty sure I have a press photo fo this vehicle somewhere, but I can’t seem to find it. This very well could be on the same platform as other 6x6s of the era.
