1949 Ad for the Universal Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

What I found curious about this advertisement is that it sounds more like one from 1945 or 1946, rather than 1949. Published January 23, 1949, the ad by Fort Worth Willys-Overland seems to be trying to introduce readers to this ‘new concept’ of an automobile. However, it does so without invoking the four-in-one-vehicle concept used in the early years. Had Fort Worth Star-Telegram readers never seen or heard of a civilian jeep?

“Very Rare Vintage late 1950’s / early 1960’s Silver Willys FC-150 Cufflinks in Tarnished but Very Good Used Condition. Stamped “NB” and “STERLING” on the inside surface of both backings.

The Jeep Forward Control is a truck that was produced by Willys Motors, later named Kaiser Jeep, from 1956 to 1965. It was also assembled in other international markets. The layout featured a cab over (forward control) design.
The Forward Control models were primarily marketed as work vehicles for corporate, municipal, military, as well as civilian use. Regular pickup box beds were standard, but customers were offered a large number of “Jeep approved” specialized bodies from outside suppliers. These ranged from simple flatbeds to complete tow trucks, dump trucks, and fire trucks. The vehicles were also manufactured under license in India and Spain.

My Father obtained these cufflinks while working in fleet sales for Willys in the Caribbean and Central & South America in the 50’s and early 60’s.”

“Hello everyone. I am selling my 1946 CJ-2a. Overall it does need some TLC but everything is there and complete. It does come with the hydraulic pump and hydraulic ram that powered the original plow. The reason it was originally parked was the rear main seal was leaking onto the clutch which made the clutch slip. I do have a clean clear title in hand for the buyer. Vehicle does not run at this moment. It would have to get winched up onto a trailer. As you can see from the pictures both the original body Vin tag and frame Vin tag are intact and matching. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I am asking $3,750 o.b.o please do not lowball me or waste my time.”

Alaska Highway Movie from 1943

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

This somewhat silly movie included numerous jeeps and other war-time transport. It looks like the Sierras were substituted for Northwestern Canada. Perhaps the funniest part of the movie begins at 21:36 as a jeep rolls up behind a guy in a parka (a scene that looks fake). For some reason, two soldiers have climbed a Matterhorn-looking spire. One guy starts to fall, so the other uses a rope with a loop to keep him from falling. Then, somehow, the guy up top then climbs down on the same rope, but how does the top of the rope connect to anything?
