The October 26, 1943, Fox Movietone featured a one minute clip about a Toledo, Ohio, Fire Jeep. It appears to be built on a Willys MB Slat Grille. The clip appears at the 6:53 mark of the video. I managed to get a few still images:

Oliver OC-3 Bulldozer Watsonville, CA $1500

• CATEGORIES: Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: .

This has been repowered with a Willys motor.


“Cute little classic farm crawler tractor / dozer. I believe this is an Oliver OC-3-42 42” gauge tractor, probably late 1940’s or early 50’s. As I understand it, the Celtrac HG & Oliver OC-3 are the same tractor, so it could be either. This one has been rengined with a Willy’s Jeep flathead 4 cylinder gas motor. The tractor starts and runs well (12 volt) and all gears work as do both steering clutches. The sheet metal is in decent shape although the bottom section of the grill appears to have been cut off.

It has the original wench in the front bumper along with the original 6 cylinder engine and 4 speed manual transmission. The engine turns over freely but I have not attempted to get it running.

The drivers side running board is in the bed of the truck. There is a dent in each front bottom corner of cab as you can see in photos.

1947 CJ-2A Boyer Jeep Brunswick, Canada Make Offer

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: .

John’s selling this Boyer Jeep. The jeep has less than 9,000 miles and was formerly a DNR wire jeep. I have the stainless steel racks that were on the jeep and the tailgate. I don’t have all the side mounted tool boxes. I also have all the canvas. Roof, doors and back. As for the knob on the front by the headlight it is hand throttle. I suspect it was used for the water pump that at one time was mounted on the front. This is why it does not have the proper front bumper I suspect.
