1945 Article on the Jeep Demonstration

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles

A July 19, 1945, article in the Dayton Herald, out of Dayton, Ohio, covered the jeep demonstration at Charles Sorensen’s farm. Two things about the article stuck out to me. 1) I was surprised to learn that there had been no sales price shared with reports as of the demonstration. 2) The reporter who wrote the article noted that the most interesting piece of equipment was the John Bean Haymaker, which apparently never became a Willys-Overland Special Equipment item, at least not one of which I’m aware. I did find a brochure from a few years later that covered the John Bean Haymaker (see the cover at the bottom of this post).

1945-07-19-dayton-herald-oh-new-farm-jeep-does-its-tricks-lores

July 19, 1945, Dayton Herald out of Dayton, Ohio.

What the above article doesn’t mention is that Willys-Overland had hoped to build 20,000 jeeps over the remainder of 1945, at least according to an article in the Cincinnati Enquirer on July 18th:

1945-07-18-news-messenger-fremont-oh-new-jeep-20000-1945-lores

July 18, 1945, News Messenger out of Fremont, Ohio.

So, why wasn’t the company able to see the 20,000 production figure and instead produced only 1824 CJ-2As? One big factor was that Warner Gear had gone on strike for 12 weeks, stopping production of transmissions that Willys-Overland needed to complete the jeeps. There were probably other reasons as well, but had W-O been able to produce over those 12 weeks what they subsequently manufactured throughout 1946, the company could have come very close to the 20,000 production figure for 1945. In other words, there likely would have been a lot more VECs!

1956? Ramsey Brochure Bulletin 126-A

“1946 Willys Jeep CJ2A, Sounds like the Jeeps on MASH. No title, Buyer Pick Up Only. Condition is Used. Jeep has about 1,700 mile on it since it was refurbished and has lived in California for most of its life. Runs strong and straight. No steering pulling and brakes well. I drove it about a hundred miles in the last week or so and put it into storage. Sometimes, in second gear, it will pop out of gear if are letting up on the gas. And, sometimes ‘grates’ when going into second – could be the operator, too. The battery is not getting charged for some reason. There is a small tear in the left cargo cushion. Tires look good but they are the same ones that were on it when I bought it 16 years ago. Has never been ‘off road’ or banged around. As is, where is. Buyer to arrange shipping and bears the cost. Great vehicle for The 4th of July. This is a very original Jeep. She always turns heads.”

“This unit has been in storage for a long time. The pistons are not stuck. Carburetor needs to be freed up and cleaned out. MB 564093 Marine Power Unit. 134 c.i.d.. This is a non running military engine that has been in storage. I see no cracks or breaks in the castings. I separated the engine and gear box so they could be mounted on my engine stands. After removing the oil pan and cylinder head and checking it out, I loosely assembled it just to keep things all together. The generator is a 6 volt, 40 amp. and the starter motor & bendix look good.

The “marine drive” gear box that was mounted on the engine has a multiple disc wet clutch with “knuckle in” engagement and by moving the lever in the other direction knuckles the clutch out, goes into neutral and will begin to apply a band brake as lever movement continues. Box is full of oil and looks good. The universal coupling behind the box is very heavy duty. The engine flywheel is drilled and tapped for a vehicle clutch assembly, but is still yet a clutch virgin. Starter gear shows very, very little wear. I will be happy to open things back up (engine and gear box) with a interested person present.”
