“I have a 1947 Willy’s Jeep cj2a 3 speed, 4×4. That has been in my family since 1947. It was my great grandpas, he used it on his farm in east tx. It sat in a barn for roughly 40 yrs until my grandpa restored it. It has been garage kept since then. After my grandpa passed away several years ago my mom got the Jeep and she gave it to me. I have no place to keep it besides in my back yard. It runs and drives, and attracts everybodys attention. I know it’s worth a decent amount of money, I’ve done my research. Im asking $8k or best offer or I’m considering trades just let me know what you have the worst I can say is no thanks.”

1955 Fire Truck at the Petrified National Park

• CATEGORIES: Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles, Willys Trucks
1955-willys-firetruck-fort-bowie-nm-petrified-forest4

The truck is located at the Painted Desert Visitors center along Route 66 and I-40 at Petrified National Park in Arizona.

Eric posted some pics of a modified 1955 Willys fire truck to Facebook the other day. Apparently, the truck was originally stationed at the Chiricahua National Monument, then at the Fort Bowie National Monument, before arriving in 2016 at the Petrified Forest National Park.

Somehow, I have never been to any one of these three national parks. As a boy, we’d go jeeping at the Beverly Sand Dunes and finding petrified wood was no big deal, so I’ve never seen a reason to stop at the Petrified Forest NP. There other two are definitely worth a stop on our next Arizona trip; When will that be? Maybe spring of 2022?.

1955-willys-firetruck-fort-bowie-nm-petrified-forest9

The truck pictured looks to be a Valley Fire Truck model, white the white truck appears more like a General Fire modified truck.

My guess is the jeep pictured in this National Park sign is a Valley Fire modified truck, while, given the low rear bed, I think the white fire truck was likely originally modified by General Fire into a model they called “The General Commando”. According to the CJ-3B page, the General Commando came in both open top (similar to a Personnel Carrier) and a closed top, more typical of a standard truck.

I could imagine that for the forest service’s use, remove the interior portion of the fire truck bed, then covering it was a practical way to get more utility out of the truck.
