1959? Vehicles Doing World’s Work Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Thanks to Ted for letting me borrow and scan this brochure. It will be the basis of the next poster, though I will be making some changes to it. I *think* this is a 1959ish brochure, as the truck/wagon windshields are still two piece, yet there is no DJ-3A Surrey.

1960 Aspen Jeep Travel “Little Percent” Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE II: Here’s the full brochure:

  1. Front and Back cover:

1960-jeep-trips-little-percent-brochure1

Inside of brochure:1960-jeep-trips-little-percent-brochure2

UPDATE: Thanks to Andy for inspiration.  I located a photo of the founder of Little Percent, Natalie Gignoux, in a CJ-3A. You can view some other, non jeep photos, here.

Natalie Gignoux (b1940-d2009) first opened the “Little Percent Taxi”, originally a jeep service to help folks around Aspen. In 1955 she bought a taxi service. In 1962 she sold out to another taxi service. In 2009 she passed away in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Some history (which I hope to wind into more of a narrative):

1973 Bobcat Body Ad

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Jim shared this magazine advertisement featured in the August 1973 issue of Four Wheeler Magazine.

1973-08-fourwheeler-magazine-bobcat-ad

For comparison, two years earlier, in 1971, this ad below was published in PNW4WDA Region 1 directory.

A 1970 Four Wheeler article that introduced the Bobcat body to folks outside the Pacific Northwest featured this logo, which was used in both ads above.

JeepKing Hardtops

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: , .

Another interesting item in the 1957 Berg’s Truck and Parts Co (Aka the King of Jeeps) Catalog was this “Jeep King” hardtop advertisement, for both half and full-size tops. It looks like it’s a private branding of the Beck (or Kemco) Jeep Cabs, because the door has the split window. As far as I know, that wasn’t available on the Kelly hardtops manufactured by Kelly Manufacturing (which is the company Kemco became).Also, the Kemco had the small window on the half cab, as does the Jeepking half cab.
