Bleick “J” Logo Mechanical Pencil

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I bought this off of eBay. I imagine this pencil is from the late 1940s based on the “J” logo. The lead remains nice and snug in the pencil, so it’s still very usable. Thanks to Marty for spotting it!

Unknown Hubs … Anyone Recognize Them?

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

I am looking for more information on these hubs. Anyone recognize them?

Austin Smith posted this unusual hub to G503 Facebook. He theorizes they may be a freewheeling hub of some kind, as he can find no way to spin the hubs nor, after disassembling it, did he find any internals to do so.

This is installed on an Australian jeep. The hubs look similar to a Selectro type, but these have only three nodules around the outside:
selectro-dualmatic-unknown-versionRoger Martin spotted this odd hub on Rick Reilly’s Commando in 2019. This might be a free-wheeling hub:

1968 & 1969 DJ-5 Surrey Gala Ads

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, DJ-5 & DJ-6, Features • TAGS: .

During the late 1960s, a couple different Jeep dealers in Hawaii offered DJ-5Jeep Surrey Galas for sale. There were at least two different styles of ads published.

In 1967, a Kaiser-Jeep dealership owned by Von Hamm-Young Mercantile, flew the 1968 model of the DJ-5 Gala Jeep to Hawaii. From the story below, it would seem that this may have been the first example of a DJ-5 Gala Jeep arriving in Hawaii. Note that the photo’s caption only describes this jeep as a Gala.

1967-10-19-honolulu-star-bulletin-dj5-surrey-gala-jeep-lores

Over the next two years, the dealer published ads hoping to spur sales. We’ll likely never know how successful sales were, but I’d suspect not too many were sold.

1) The first ad appeared between April and September of 1968. The example shown below was published in the May 30, 1968, issue of the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. There are a variety of things that struck me with this ad. First, it’s the first ad I’ve seen for a DJ-5 Surrey/Gala. Second, it is advertised as a “Surrey Gala”, rather than one or the other. Third, it came in six different color schemes. Fourth, later in the year (specifically September 24th in the Hawaii Tribune Herald), Big Island Rambler was the dealer name at the bottom of the ad, with no specific link made to Von Hamm-Young.

Apart from all those points, it’s generally just an odd ad for a vehicle!

1968-05-30-honolulu-star-bulletin-dj5-surrey-ad-lores

2) This ad appeared multiple times, but only during April of 1969 (I could find no other ads for any other month in 1969), isn’t quite as odd as the 1968 campaign. The ad also doesn’t mention the multiple package options. This particular example was published in the April 4th, 1969, issue of the Honolulu Advertiser.

February 1955 Article Willys Chops Prices

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine • TAGS: .

This February 1955 article highlights how quickly Willys Motors shifted from a jeep and car company to more of a jeep company, chopping the number of automobiles it was selling from 10 in 1954 to only 3 in 1955. According to the article, Wills Motors also appeared most focused on the new CJ-5.
