1942-1943 Photo of Lt. General Walter Krueger on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

There’s no date associated with this photo, but General Krueger made Lt. Gen. in 1941. Given the jeep appears to be an MB, then this is most likely a 1942 or 1943 photo.

While in Louisiana, according to Wikipedia, the General adapted quickly to modern warfare, In at least two different phases of mock battles, the Lt. Gen. out gamed his opponents. He’d later use similar strategies to confront Japanese forces in the Pacific Theatre. After the war, he authored From Down under to Nippon: The Story of the Sixth Army in World War II.

“Press Photo Lieutenant General Walter Krueger and Soldiers with Army Jeep. This is an original press photo. When a three star general roams the maneuver country, no cushioned limousine will do the job. Lieutenant General Walter Krueger, left above, confers with Staff Sargent M. Hanson about the ground-covering capabilities of his “war” Jeep, complete with two-way radio, siren, and – just to clear the road – the General’s three-starred flag. Both the Jeep and General have a task ahead – for General Krueger, as Commanding General of the Third Army, will direct strenuous maneuvers in the battle-tough Louisiana area.Photo measures 9.25 x 7.5inches. Photo is dated –None.”

1956? Kaiser-Willys of Canada Ad on eBay

Year? CJ-3A Victoria, TX $1200


A couple things with the seller’s notes. I agree this appears to be a CJ-3A, but the Dana 44 was introduced in late 1950 to the CJ-3A (not 1952).

year-cj3a-victoria-tx2 year-cj3a-victoria-tx3 year-cj3a-victoria-tx4

“Was converted to chevy V8 and front saginaw manual steering (excellent upgrade if you’ve ever driven a stock one). Has 16” wheels and one of them appears to be original (date stamped 1953 military) it will need a replacement engine as the v8 block in it is apart and no good any longer. Jeep is rusty, modified, old and in need of extensive repair and restoration but is mostly all there. I do have the front fenders, they were only taken off to pull the engine out but I have lost interest and have too many other projects to finish first.

The firewall was butchered when the engine conversion was made but wouldn’t be too difficult to patch and repair with sheet metal and a little effort. Asking $1200, it has no title and I am not sure what year or model it is, my best guess 1953. It has the dana44 rear axle (means it is at least a 1952 and they quit building the low hood in 1953 and the gear ratio is 5.38:1 like most of them were throughout the years. It rolls easy but should be trailered because of age.”

Art Hasler’s 1945 Experiences in Germany

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

A search for something else led me from a jeep photo (below) to a post about Major Art Hasler’s experience in Germany. The post is mixed with original and period photos, a few of which include jeeps. His story about Karl von Frisch’s work on bees was fascinating to Art, and later to the Nobel Price Committee, as he won the Nobel Price for his work on the social behavior of bees.

Dark Smoky-Glass Saucers w/ CJ-5 Imprints

• CATEGORIES: Features

I saw these on eBay and decided to snag them. I’d guess they were produced circa 1960? For some reason the jeeps are printed backwards, with the steering wheel and gas inlet on the passenger side. While there are lots of details, a battery box lid detail was not included, so either it was an oversight or the artist didn’t care or it was a post ’62 illustration.

1949 Spanish Ad for the Willys Jeep Truck on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, International

Lots of text on this Willys Jeep Truck ad.

View all the information on eBay


IN ENGLISH: Jeep Trucks: Work with Less Cost
The ‘Jeep’ Trucks have been designed to lower transportation costs and to give safe performance under the toughest working conditions. They consume less oil and less gasoline, the longer they last longer, and their functional design makes them easier to preserve and repair.

Four-wheel drive models, with a capacity for 1 ton of payload, are built “on purpose” for heavy duty off the road. Conventional rear wheel drive models can handle 3/4 to 1 ton of payload and their economical performance on the road is unmatched.

In both types we offer a wide selection of standard body styles, all with fully enclosed cab, suitable for any climate, and in the four-wheel drive models, the motive power take-off is optional.
