Pics are a little dark. A 35,000lb winch? That’s either a misprint or a bit of overkill.

May 1961 Jeep News

• CATEGORIES: News

Just one post today. This is the last of the Jeep News papers I bought last month. Hopefully, I can locate some more soon.

This May 1961 issue contains ALOT of Surrey and Dispatcher jeeps: Ice Cream delivery, Pepe ‘actors’, and fleet transportation are just some of the uses. The Kellogg contest fills an entire page with lots of pics. The Truth or Consequences Jeep Derby results are highlighted. Even the Utah Jeep Posse’s are mentioned.

The ‘Jeep’ Fleet line of ads look interesting (page 3) ; I don’t know much about those.

1965 Willys Interlagos Hollywood, CA BaT Auction

• CATEGORIES: News

Blaine shared this rare Brazilian-made Willys Interlagos for auction.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1962-willys-overland-interlagos/

“This 1965 Willys Interlagos Berlinette is one of fewer than 900 Brazilian-made examples built under license from Renault between 1961 and 1966, and was imported to the US at an unknown point. A refurbishment was initiated under previous ownership but remains uncompleted, and the engine has not been started. Several items of trim are missing and the fuel, brake, and cooling systems will need to be recommissioned according to the selling dealer, who acquired the car from the estate of its previous owner in January 2020. This Willys Interlagos is offered with a new front windshield and rear window, spare parts, and a clean California title listing it as a 1962 model.”

“Great opportunity to own a post WW II Jeep. This little utility vehicle runs, drives, stops and most everything on it works. The brakes and fuel system were recently redone, the alternator was repaired and we’ve been cruising it around the area a little here and there. This little Jeep would be great for the deer lease, puttering around the farm or restore it to it’s former glory. It appears to be a civilian Jeep as it doesn’t have any of the features found on military Jeeps of the time period. We do not have a title for it, but I will give you a contact if you would like to try to get one. The body is rusty with many holes and patches; However, the frame appears to be solid. Call me between 8am and 6pm with any questions.

UPDATE 6-17-2020: The serial number on the engine appears to identify this Jeep as a CJ-3A, if its the original engine. I haven’t been able to find any other information to verify this, but at least its a start.”
