Anyone Know Who Made the Corn Picker for W-O?

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

UPDATE: Any experts out there familiar with 1950s corn pickers? Barry Thomas from Farmjeep.com asked me to ask you all if anyone knows who built the Corn Picker branded by Willys-Overland (see brochure below). He thinks it was CO-OP, but doesn’t know for sure. You can view his whole corn-picking post here: https://www.farmjeep.com/farm-jeeps-at-corn-harvest-time/

In the meantime, enjoy this video of a CJ-5 pulling a corn picker:

Pine Ridge Bison Farm Videos

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

You might remember that last May Ann and I had a chance to visit with Dan and April and their kids at their Eastern Montana Bison Ranch. At the beginning of October, they began creating videos of their ranch experience.  They have currently produced four videos with plans for more. Though jeeps make a small, short appearance, mostly it is about learning how their lives have changed as they learn to do without the things most of us take for granted, including utility-backed running water and electricity. So, check them out!

Here is their Youtube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsidyGphAz3QzDx1qanIJbQ

Here is their first video:

If you want a good look at their bison, this video of theirs show them wrangling bison with a Jeep Cherokee:

Roger Martin at his father’s funeral

To honor his father, Roger drove up Mt. Currahee in a 1942 GPW loaned to Roger by his friend Paul Grice. The mountain road is 2.5 miles and climbs 850 feet. Roger was accompanied on the trip by two daughters, two nieces, and a few other family members. They all enjoyed the beautiful views!

Of course, Jim was one of several members of the 101st Airborne that were portrayed in the HBO series, The Band of Brothers. According to Roger, the series transformed Jim’s life. Here is unique look at Damien Winters and Jim sharing stories about making the series along with some of Jim’s experiences.

Nick’s Garage Works on a 1947 CJ-2A

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

Nick takes a look at this mostly stock 1947 CJ-2A. Note the unusual location the steering box mod (it does not appear mounted against the frame rail; rather, it is slid towards the passenger side six or more inches. I could only catch a few glimpses of it, such as time stamp 20:01-20:03 (there might be others). An additional cross member was welded between the bumper and the standard cross member, then a support was welded between the new crossmember and the bumper. It’s to that support that the steering box is attached.

Arizona Flatfender Run w/ Nicole Johnson

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

Just a. few updates today. I got to get to painting this morning, as Ann is still suffering through migraines/auras (day 5), so is unable to paint (or do most anything).

Bill shared this video of Nicole Johnson tagging along on a stock flat fender run in Arizona. She does some of the driving, including a little rock climbing, which isn’t easy when you are driving someone else’s vehicle (so kudos to her).

There are a few comments along the way that aren’t quite correct. For example, the CJ-3A did not use the CJ-2A frame, but rather the frame switched near the end of the CJ-2A production into more of what would be a CJ-3A frame (no gussets, under mounted transmission crossmember).

1960 Video From the Gold Country Classic Jeep event

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images Jeeping, videos

Dave Morgan shared this video taken by his father. With some research, Dave figured out the video was from the 1960 Gold Country Classic (I like the ‘backing a trailer event’ idea; it’s something different), a jeep event held by the Sacramento Jeepers Jeep Club. There is no sound.
