Post originally Published April 8, 2017:

hoffman-hub

In December of 1958, Floyd G. Huffman filed a patent for a new type of hub structure. His patent, designed to “provide a hub structure that can be simply and quickly manually operated to release the front wheels so that they will rotate freely on the axles without the necessity of having the gears etc. rotate simultaneously when the front wheel drive has been disengaged” was finally approved in April of 1961.

1970’s Photo CJ-3A in Uruguay Pulling Trailer Ad

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

Hugo shared a French documentary about Uruguay that includes a CJ-3A. Below is a still from the video (full video here). The jeep only makes a couple second appearance.

“At the 3:20 mark, this video shows our central and most important avenue. The date of the video is 18 de Julio (18th July), the day our first constitution was approved. The location along the avenue is still possible to recognize by the architecture. Obviouslly everything else changed.

The Willys is pulling an advertisement for the Lottery of the 6th January day of the Three Kings. It is an important hollyday in Uruguay. Today it is comparable to Christmas, regarding the weight of gifts for children.”

On a side note, while doing some brief research for this, I learned that Uruguay has the longest carnival season in the world, as it runs 40 days each year!

1947 Ad for Marine L-134 Engines

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This ad for Marine versions of the L-134 engine appeared in the October 06, 1947, issue of The Key West Citizen newspaper. As the ad notes, these are the “J1” models, which I take to mean that the serial numbers might start with “J1”?

1949 CJ-3A Idaho Falls, ID **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3000.

Seems worth a look. Has drivetrain updates.

“1949 Willys Jeep CJ3A. Has the “Dauntless” V6. Turbo 400 automatic transmission. Dana 18 transfer case. Saginaw steering. Front disc brakes. Lots of new parts. $3,000 with new tires and older rims. $2,500 with older original style wheels and tires. Runs well and drives but definitely needs more restoration but that’s part of the fun with these old Willys jeeps. Make offer or if you have something of equal value maybe we can trade.

This Jeep was never titled but the price reflects that. I did a title search in Oregon where it was purchased and came up with nothing. There are ways to license and register it and it really isn’t a big deal but just know there is that issue. Added: The Transmission shifts rough and leaks and may need a rebuild.. Probably needs a new radiator. I took the gas tank off and did a coating on the inside which came out very nice. Put in a new gas tank gauge sending unit. New distributor cap and points. New coolant hoses. Runs well but I have a carburator rebuild kit for it. Changed the oil. Changed the tranny fluid. Did a flush of the coolant system.”

1947 CJ-2A Tribune, KS $10,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

UPDATE: Still Available. This is listed as a 1945. Thanks to Matt for waking me from my quarantine induced idiocy. This only has an early serial number IF you ignore the 1 and the 0 in front of 1830 (serial number 101830, which I suspect is what the seller did, too). It includes a compressor fitted onto the passenger side.

This one sat on the backburner too long and is ready for a new home. You could do almost anything with it, maybe your Mahindra Roxor would be more fun with a new front clip and licence plates? Cheap trail rig? LS swap? Slammed with an SR20det? Crazy 70’s street freak gasser? Anything, well except keep the cage, it’s terrifying. Cash talks, I will respond to folks in order.”

Roy Rogers, Post Cereals, & the Win-A-Jeep Family Contest

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Roy Rogers and Post Cereals had a licensing agreement for an unknown period of time, but it at least covered the period between 1952-1955 (I’m sure the Roy Rogers & Dale Evans archives can better answer the time period question). Together, the entertainer and cereal manufacturer produced a series of TV spots, print ads, and merchandise.

Here’s an example of a Post Cereal Commercial with Roy Rogers, Pat Brady and a hint of Nelly Belle (see many more commercials here):

In 1952 and 1953, Roy Rogers teamed up with Post Cereals to produce a series of 36 pop-out cards about Roy’s epic adventures. View references to the names for the entire list of cards here.

1953-f278-19-post-cereals-roy-rogers-front-back

Card #4 “Pat Brady and Hi Jeep, “Nelly Bell”. Of course, the front is actually the same size as the back. See better images here.

Post Cereals also released a series of 3D cards with Roy Rogers, a few that included jeeps, that required the use of 3D glasses. Here are two examples that include jeeps (there are some of these 3D items for sale on eBay).

Storks Plows Equipment, Parts and Service

• CATEGORIES: Features, Website

UPDATE: Matt shared this awesome pic of a Stork FC with a plow taken at the 2019 Great Willys Picnic.

storks-blue-plow-fc

I happened upon the Stork’s Plows website the other day. The company operates out of Bernsville, Pennsylvania. It looks like they carry a wide range of replacement parts for plows and other equipment, though how many vintage parts they have for those items isn’t clear. According to the website’s history page, the company started fixing plows and has a history of jeep support. They also sell some jeep parts on eBay.

Anyone familiar with the company?
