FC Jamboree Sept 13-14 2019

• CATEGORIES: Event, Features

Just one update tonight.

Dan Devires plans to hold his FC Jamboree again this year on September 13-14 in Lake Mills, Iowa. It should be a great time! I wish I could be there; instead I’m cleaning out my mother’s basement for the next few days.

“1942 Press Photo Army Jeep Moves up Ramp of Army’s Curtiss Commando Transport. This is an original press photo.

Designed to accommodate men and equipment Buffalo, New York – A. U.S. Army scout car or “jeep” is shown moving up the ramp preliminary to entering the unusually wide doors of the new, giant, 25-ton Curtiss Commando (C-46) military transport, the world’s largest twin-engined airliner, during tests by Curtiss-Wright Corporation to determine how quickly mobile equipment including field artillery, tractors and aircraft engines may be rushed to critical points in widely scattered battle zones of the United Nations.

After the mobile units are loaded, fully-equipped troops pour into the plane to occupy lightweight folding seats along the walls of the fuselage. The giant “troopship of the sky” is being produced in large numbers for the U.S. Army Air Forces. Photo measures 9 x 7.25 inches. Photo is dated 07-30-1942.”

“I am selling a 1953 Jeep Willys CJ3b. Jeep is out of California until 2010 where it made its way to the northeast. Minimal rust, two spots the size of a 5 inch square on both floors by feet. Thats it.

The vehicle was undercoated many years ago, of which is peeling like crazy off the bottom of the tub and fenders. Literally comes off in sheets, by hand. Nice grey gloss paint underneath. That grey is the original grey and I think its called swan grey.

The motor was just gone through, including less than .002 taper on each cylinder, rods, pistons and main bearings are all standard and have never been over sized. Cylinders were honed and new standard rings were installed, only because the original rings had become brittle and I snap a few when removing.
