Canadian Dodge/Jeep Dealer Getting its ‘Ritz’ On

• CATEGORIES: Features

Mike forwarded this interesting video. You may remember the post last month about the jeep that was ‘buried’. It turns out the dealer has a much broader and interesting story. Due to the tight dealer competition, Bay King Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram has chosen to create a unique customer experience to differentiate themselves from their Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, competitors. As my wife put it, many dealerships you walk into give you the predator/prey feeling. Bay King’s approach will appeal to a lot of folks.

The slow paced video includes a look at the jeep burial as well.

It’s a project.

The 46 has most body work done, new tail gate, tail gate surround and a few other metal parts. The floors are great, I made a 2×3 sq. tube frame with new spring mounts, the trans and transfer case are rebuilt, I have a extra trans that is no good and I have a complete engine that needs rebuilt. I have lots of new parts and the 46 is complete except no steering wheel. The 46 is a great looking project.

Give me a call or email with and questions you have. Call Bill ”

Late 1940s Delivery Panel Wagon Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This is a circa 1949 delivery panel wagon brochure marked PDCM1-3CM-949 that highlights the advantages of a Willys Panel Delivery Jeep. It’s a brochure that could act as a mailing brochure as well. What makes the brochure’s design a little unusual is that the first ‘fold’ is vertical, rather than horizontal, making it 17″ by 5.5″ when first unfolded.

If folded, this was the 8.5″ by 5.5″ front page:

willys-panel-delivery-pdcm1-3cm-949-1

And this the back: willys-panel-delivery-pdcm1-3cm-949-2

 

When unfolded, this makes a 17″ x 5.5″ graphic:

willys-panel-delivery-pdcm1-3cm-949-joint1-lores

If unfolded all the way, this 17″ x 11″ complete foldout:
