“Great opportunity to own a post WW II Jeep. This little utility vehicle runs, drives, stops and most everything on it works. The brakes and fuel system were recently redone, the alternator was repaired and we’ve been cruising it around the area a little here and there. This little Jeep would be great for the deer lease, puttering around the farm or restore it to it’s former glory. It appears to be a civilian Jeep as it doesn’t have any of the features found on military Jeeps of the time period. We do not have a title for it, but I will give you a contact if you would like to try to get one. The body is rusty with many holes and patches; However, the frame appears to be solid. Call me between 8am and 6pm with any questions.

UPDATE 6-17-2020: The serial number on the engine appears to identify this Jeep as a CJ-3A, if its the original engine. I haven’t been able to find any other information to verify this, but at least its a start.”

Dare County, North Carolina, Jeep Bookmobile

• CATEGORIES: Features, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles
1953-03-dare-county-nc-jeep-bookmobile-truck4-lores

April 1954, Dane County, North Carolina: https://digital.ncdcr.gov/digital/collection/p249901coll36/id/336. The jeep was painted green.

An April 15, 1948, newspaper article in the Winona Republican (Winona, Minnesota) claimed that there were roughly 377 bookmobiles traveling the United States, out of which only one was a jeep.

Two years later, by 1950, the jeep was proving more popular for use as a bookmobile, because it could access rural areas more easily than other vehicles. I doubt there are any records on how many jeeps were used as bookmobiles, but at least one appeared in multiple photos and articles: The Dare County Jeep Bookmobile.

Dare County purchased it’s first jeep in 1950, hence all the photos and news articles on this post. According to the library’s history page: “After the war, the library continued to grow. In 1950, the first bookmobile was purchased – a green Willys Jeep converted for this purpose began making regularly scheduled runs. As there were then no bridges from the mainland or to the Outer Banks, all trips involved ferries. Georgia Harwood retired in 1956, succeeded by Jean Turner Ward, who served as librarian for the next fifteen years.”

This full page article with photos was published in North Carolina’s News and Observer on April 23, 1950. It appears the new jeep bookmobile had just been put into service.

1943 Photos of a ‘Jeep’ Named Squeekie

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

A one-of-a-kind ‘jeep’ named Squeekie was built from photos by William Mason in 1942. In 1943, this press photo was taken, then circulated around the country, two of which can be seen below.

Mason worked at Oakland’s Independent Iron Works, Inc. I wasn’t able to uncover too much about Mason, other than he filed a patent for an arc welding machine, on behalf of his employer in October of 1956.

This photo was shared on a vintage photograph Facebook Group by Bob Cunningham. He included the following text, though I’m unaware of where the text originated (maybe based on an original press photo caption?):

1942-jeep-squeekie-oakland-ca

Per the Facebook post: “In 1942, William Mason, an iron works superintendent in Oakland, California, used newspaper photographs to create “Squeekie,” his version of the Army’s new wonder car, the “jeep.” Although Mason built the 2-horsepower car for his son, Billy, his wife often used it for ’round-the-town grocery shopping during the days of gas rationing, since it got a thrifty 35 miles per gallon and rolled on unrationed, small sized implement tires. The little “jeep” was once stolen and abandoned in a farmer’s field, and the U.S. Army was notified that one of their prototypes had been found. At the time, most civilians had never seen an actual “jeep,” so the mistake was understandable.”

Here are two newspaper photos and captions:

1943-03-13-oakland-tribune-ca-squeekie-william-mason-lores

Published March 13, 1943, in the Oakland Tribune.

1945 MB Connecticut $3000

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: Price dropped to $3000.

(05/06/2020) Matt’s selling this MB. He can be reached via call or text at 860 304 3639.

“Selling one of my projects I won’t have time to get to anytime soon. Up for sale is a late war Willys MB. I believe it is a 1945. All of the data tags are gone so there is no serial number or DOD. There is an ACM number on the tub and it can clearly be read. The frame, axles, steering components and certain body parts are in good shape but the sheet metal is very rough. One of the front frame horns will also need to be replaced.

Lots of rust in the body as you can see in the pictures. There is a later CJ2A engine in it but no transmission or transfer case. There are still a-lot of good hard to find parts on it. This is a good start to a restoration as the chassis is very solid and usable or as a parts vehicle to complete another Jeep with a better body and drivetrain. I do have some parts and pieces that can be purchased separately to make it more complete. Located in Connecticut. Asking $3500 obo.”

(07/05/2019) Craig shared this nice looking Jeepney. It’s got a number of cool details, including a map of the midwest painted on the ceiling. Listed as a 1946, I couldn’t say for sure if that year is accurate or not.

View all the information on eBay

“1946 F-134, T-90 3 speed, if you want a vehicle to take to the car and Jeep shows that will always bring a smile and draw a crowd this is it!! Super rare to find in this country, Jeepneys were made after WWII when we left our Jeeps in the Philippines, the people there were very crafty and creative, they turned the WWII Army Jeeps into colorful people haulers, there are only a few in this country, here is your chance for a cool vehicle for your collection that is guaranteed to stand out.”

Restoration project. Has sat for a number of years. Complete and original. Rust in the usual Jeep places (footwell). Frame is straight and solid. Motor currently does not run but turns over with compression…. Being a diesel I am sure it would run if you hooked it up to a fuel tank, not had time to mess with it. Parts are available from a number of suppliers. Even has the original Japanese NDTs still on it……. Very cool and unique Jeep.”

“Don’t get excited, they don’t run . . yet. Three vintage early CJ jeeps, all Willys, two CJ2As and one CJ3A. What you see is what you get.
I purchased these three at different times from different sources and was going to get one running “Sarge” jeep for parades and events. Believe enough parts are here to get close to that. But another jeep came my way that will accomplish that purpose and these three can go to a good home.
All three motors turn, not stuck, but have not attempted to start, some do not have manifolds and carbs. Again, my intent was to get one out of three, that’s why I’m sell all three as a lot. $900 takes them all and any loose parts I can find laying around.
The 3A has a L134 engine with a Supersonic head on it and a carb and is the closest to running and the most complete body. One 2A has a Willys L134 motor and the other has a Willys L134 Industrial engine. All three have T90 transmissions and one has a PTO winch mounted on the front bumper.

I have fork lift to assit with loading but if you want to push them or winch them onto your trailer, we might have to switch some tires and wheels around to get rollers.”
