Two Photos from Alex

• CATEGORIES: Features, GPA (SEEP), International, Old Images

Alex, who directs Tahiti-Pacifique Magazine, forwarded these two photos.

For unknown reasons, the driver of this DUKW (thanks Bob) must have had quite a drive!

Alex writes, “Photo of 1954 peace treaty delegation between the French and the Vietminh. The French army used mostly US WW2 surplus equipment in that war. The US took over after the 1954 defeat, Indochina became Vietnam, the Vietminh became Vietcong and the issue was the same 20 years later. “

1975 CJ-6 Sweden

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6, Features, International

Jerk spotted this unusual CJ-6 with what I assume is a custom bed. It’s another odd ball.

“Google translation of ad;

It is 4×4 and right hand drive. Is the course so no sms or e-mail hears
I was by myself for the end! Sincerely Tobbe”

Surfer Roxy in Alex’s CJ-3A

• CATEGORIES: Features, International, Women & Jeeps

A US surfing celebrity called Roxy dropped by Moorea in Tahiti and borrowed Alex’s CJ3A  for some fashion shots. I personally think they cropped too much of the jeep, but I guess it is all about the model these days . . . On the bright side, he made a few bucks on the rental 🙂

To Roxy’s credit, she could drive the jeep well. You can see more pictures of Alex’s jeeps (without Roxy) here

Here are some additional photos from the photoshoot

Finally, you can catch a quick glimpse of the jeep racing through the pinapple fields. You’ll have to watch a bunch of women in small bikinis to see it though. I’m sure you’ll all suffer through it just fine.

1974 IKA 2WD CJ-6 **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6, International • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: This was on eBay last year. **Status Unknown.

(11/24/2013) This Industrias Kaiser Argentina CJ-6 is the first I’ve found for sale. The seller’s wife brought this from Argentina. According to the CJ-3B Page, about 600 of these came with diesel engines.

“This is a rare specimine of a 1971 Kaiser Jeep CJ6 that has been garage kept for many years. My wife brought it to the US from Argentina where it was maintained to the last degree by a master mechanic. The body has absolutely 0% rust. That may be hard to believe but it is truly the case. It was originally a Dual Fuel Natural Gas primary with Gasoline Reserve tank vehicle but the EPA forced my wife to remove the NG tanks. I have no idea why in this day and age of alternative fuels the EPA would make her do this but they did. The tanks re-installed if you can find them in the market. The EPA forced her to leave the tanks behind. We are both self employed and have very little time to work with it but as I understand it, here is what it will require to get it running: Rebuild the carb, Probably a new battery, and it will need a new Hydraulic clutch & mastercylinder. Otherwise, it should be good to go. As you can see from the pictures, it is in amazing condition cosmetically. If you have any questions, I will be happy to answer them to the best of my ability. This “Fix-er-Upper” wont take too much “Fixin’-Up” to be an awesome collector for someone.”

Driving the Jeep is T/5 Charles D. Hiller of East Syracuse, New York. Sitting next to him is a Belgian patriot in an American uniform, holding an M1 Garand.
