An anonymous reader we shall call “Mr. Packrat” has offered to share from time to time a collection of documents he’s gathered. So, many thanks to him for his ‘donation’ to our collective educational efforts!

This is the first item, an interesting look at the selling of signs to dealers by Willys Motors.

H & Z All-Purpose Willys-approved Mixer Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This mixer was featured in the 1949 Willys Overland Equipment Book. It was manufactured by Hertzler and Zook, a company established in 1899 out of Belleville, Pennsylvania, that manufactured an array of machinery and farm implements. There are still a few catalogs left out there, such as this 1926-27 catalog for sale at Abe Books.

Orchard Sprayers By Field Force Manufacturing

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Documents, Features, Old Images

These documents were in a late 1940s Willys Overland binder.

There seems to be a very slight difference between the two sprayer packages offered by Field Force Manufacturing. One package used a pump with stainless steel non-magnetic plungers that gave the pump higher capacity and more pressure capability. It weighed slightly more, too.

All-Purpose Advertising in Late 1955

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Old News Articles

The Truck ad is from the September 8, 1955, issue of the Heppner Gazette-Times, while the wagon is from the October 27, 1955, issue. I guess the 1955 fall advertising theme was “All-Purpose”.
