1961 Brochure Jeeps Vs. Scouts

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE: The brochure doesn’t include a DJ-5 or 6, because they didn’t arrive until 1965 (thanks Colin). 

I scooped this brochure off of eBay. Not the back page the brochure shows the “World’s Most Convertible Vehicles”, yet one of the two DJ-3As pictured has a top. Instead, why not include a DJ-5 or 6?
