2013 Book La jeep dans l’armée française Tome 1

• CATEGORIES: Books, Features

UPDATE: I received my copy of this book. Published in French, the book is full of French-specific photos (over two hundred). Most are from WWII, but some are from later years other areas around the world. Besides jeeps, photos of GPAs during the war years appear and, from later years photos, a few military CJ-3As along with a five-star Jeepster.

The author also explores the inscriptions/markings of French WWII jeeps in-depth, but lacking any background in that information, I can’t say how accurate (or not) the information is.

On the downside, the book promotes the phrase “General Purpose” and “Government purpose” as the words behind “GP” in GPW. The book also only recognizes some prototypes, but not others in it’s brief chart of production numbers (pg 16). 

This book is written by Paul Gaujac. It’s a 144 page book that you can purchase on Amazon (I’m sure it is available elsewhere, too).

1944 MB Traverse City, MI $34,900

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

This surrey-like mb is painted pink as a tribute to the builder’s wife’s victory over breast cancer. Though labeled a 1942, it’s actually a 1944.

1942-mb-pink-traversecity-mi1 1942-mb-pink-traversecity-mi2 1942-mb-pink-traversecity-mi3 1942-mb-pink-traversecity-mi4

“Many of us know the history and some more than others, however this vehicle is special as it was built by a husband for his wife after she battled breast cancer and won. He had a highly detailed restoration on this Jeep completed. One thing to note is that it says “1942 Willys” on the side of the hood, however it is actually a 1944. This was a slight mistake done at time of restoration.

This particular Willys is in fantastic condition both physically and mechanically. This Jeep has been driven and it starts, shifts, brakes and goes down the road as you would imagine with all the lights in working order as well. This would be a great piece to add to your collection of eclectic autos, use in parades or do a repaint back to original as there would be no metal work to complete. This is a turn key Willys that is looking for a new home.”

“Selling my project 46 cj2a. I was planning on restoring it and building it but plans have changed. It has a dauntless v6, 3 speed trans, twin sticks, reupholstered seats, original data plates which are hard to find, and a fairly rust free body. No rust holes! The hood and fenders are taken off at the moment but I can put them back on if need be. It is a project, but it runs, drives and stops and all gauges work accurately.

Needs paint, body work, probably a little more tuning with the carb, and wiring for the lights. I can finish the body work and paint but we would have to work out a price. Overall is a really cool little project. Not firm so send in some offers or trades! Serious inquires only, no low ballers please. Possible delivery, I have it on the trailer already”

I bought this hoping for more Bestop info (thinking they were Bestop tops), but Bestop isn’t mentioned in this brochure at all.  I’m guessing the date of 1975 based on the fact that I don’t see any later dates on ‘the facts’ list.
