1946 Photo & Caption of Lt. and Mrs. Harry C. Tartt

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old News Articles

I find it rewarding to find the backstories to folks see in the old photos like this. You can read Harry’s full biography here.

This photo published in the Jackson Advocate on June 22, 1946, was taken in Leghorn, Italy, and shows Harry and his wife Orlean together again after being separated during WWII. Born in Mississippi, in 1909, Harry rose to the rank of Major, serving in both WWII and the Korean War. A writer, editor and highly educated man, after spending time in Germany, France, Korea, California, Africa, and other places, he eventually returned to Mississippi, become the first black teacher at the Gulfport High School. He went on to win a variety of awards and was a member of a number of societies. Major Harry C. Tartt passed away in 2008, with Orlean preceding him.

1973 Busch Beer Commercial with a CJ-5

This 1973 Busch Beer commercial includes multiple shots of a post 1972 CJ-5. I don’t remember this commercial, yet it feels oddly familiar.

Approved Willys Service Sign Toledo, OH $250

• CATEGORIES: Features

While the sign reads “approved”, to me this particular sign does not look like Willys approved signage. There are too many signs of slight overspray. Perhaps it was done by a service station owner? I’ve also not seen one with that background color. Anyone seen another like this?

1948 CJ-2A Okanagon, WA $10,000


Looks like a classic 1980s build with the diamond plate, V8, warn winch, and bumper mod. More pics of this would be great.

“Chev 283 motor, 3 speed manual with warn overdrive, warn winch, full canvas top and bikini top, overhead console and includes a back seat.”

1948 CJ-2A Boyer Fire Jeep Utica, NY $25,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles

UPDATE: Still Available.

(03/24/2020) This former Fly Creek fire jeep includes some raised lettering on the side.

“1948 Willy’s CJ-2A Jeep mini-pumper fire truck. In running, driving and pumping condition. Always stored inside when not being used for a fire or in a parade. Shipped from Willy’s to Boyer fire apparatus in Syracuse NY to be up-fitted with the fire equipment for use at Griffiss Air Force base in Rome NY. It stayed at GAFB until 1966 when it was passed on to a small volunteer fire dept here in upstate NY and was used there until the 90’s when it was retired from active fire service. From then on it has had an easy retirement life doing parades, car shows and Fire truck exhibitions.

There are only 7010 original miles on this truck from new. It starts up and purrs like a kitten. It has all the original equipment with it to go to a fire right now, including the original 2 way radios, siren, hand tools, axes and even the helmet worn by the chief engineer who was in charge of this truck until its retirement. The ladder rack is full of all the tools, hoses and ladders that came with it.

It’s a good price on an older soft top. Looks like it requires a 3A/M-38 windshield with the channel.

1946? CJ-2A? Bringhurst, IN $4500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(03/12/2020) This shows that the DJ-3A windshield for the Koenig hardtop also will fit the Meyer CJ-5 hardtop (in this case it’s a CJ-5 half-top). To me this adds weight to my theory that the Koenig hardtop used on DJ-3As should fit CJ-5s. This jeep also has a DJ-3A body (cut side type) and grille, at the very least.

“1946 Jeep Willy.
A project my husband realized he has no time for. It runs and he does drive it around once in awhile.”

1951 Tool Bar Implements Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Marked form FS-F514105, this brochure highlights some of the tool bar implements available for jeeps, including the Rotary Lister Planter, the Conventional Moldboard Middle Buster, The Roatry Bottom Middle Buster, the Field Cultivator and the Row Fertilizer Attachment.

Barry Thomas suggests that some or all of these may be ex-newgren items that, following Newgren’s struggles, Willys-Overland began to market and sell under ‘Jeep’. I’m not as versed as some folks on the individual implements, so maybe someone can confirm this?

One thing is clear to me; Willys-Overland did not devote much marketing resources to this sales effort. These brochures are pretty simplistic compared to many other marketing documents of the time. Maybe there was a small team with a tight budget assigned to try to make something happen with this niche of farming and implements?
