“1947 Willy’s Jeep shipped from Oregon a few years ago and has been in storage every winter since. Frame is in great shape for its age and bed was sprayed with black truck bed spray long time ago. Good tread on tires. Has tow bar up front to take it on trips or to the trails. Original Willy’s go-devil engine. It runs good. Needs some work, but mechanic buddies say it wouldn’t take much. Not desperate to get rid of “Gretchen”, but could use the space and thought if someone wants it bad enough and throws me the right offer or trade, I would be willing to pass it on to the next guy. A total blast to drive and there’s nothing like an all American Willy’s. So throw me an offer for cash or trade – or a combination – and we’ll see if it makes sense. When it comes to $, would accept the best offer. When it comes to trade, I would be most interested in bare land, camp, possibly the right vehicle (good truck, off road vehicle, motorcycle, etc) musical equipment, farm/homestead equipment, etc….things of fair trade obv. Open to other ideas as well.”

James Sessions WWII Images on Menus

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Artists/Drawings, Features • TAGS: .

Bill shared an image of a menu from the Blackstone Hotel in Omaha. It was one of several hotels that featured James Sessions’ images on hotel menus. Anyone know the history behind why hotels were doing that?

For a complete overview of the Willys-Overland WWII (and post WWII) illustrations featuring jeeps, this page demonstrates how the illustrations unfolded over the years 1941-1946. For an analysis of how the changes in verbiage may have reflected changes as Willys-Overland during the war years, view this page.

I’m sure there are more examples than the ones gathered below. Here is what I have so far:

This is the Blackstone Hotel example that Bill shared:

M-38/M-38A1 Rims and Back Spacing

• CATEGORIES: Features

Morgan stated in a comment that he was a little confused as to why some of the M-38/M-38A1 rims had back spacing changes. Can anyone help answer his questions?

Morgan wrote, “Trying to get a handle on M38/M38A1 military Jeep wheels is difficult at best (let alone all the other Jeep wheels!).

1. Do only military wheels (all 16″ ??) have weep holes? Correct me but I’ve noticed that maintaining a 12 o’clock alignment of the valve stem hole puts the weep hole of a 16″ x 4 1/2″ at 3 o’clock. And the weep hole of a 16″ x 5″ is at 9 o’clock. While the top lug hole on the 16 x 4 1/2″ lines up with 12 o’clock, it’s the bottom lug hole on the 16″ x 5″ that lines up with 12 o’clock.

In addition the backspace on the 16 x 4 1/2″ is about 3 1/4″ while the backspace on the 16 x 5″ is about 3 3/4″. Now admittedly, my research is limited and maybe I’ve only learned enough to be dangerous, but it’s the backspace that got me going.

2. I’m wondering if the shorter backspace on the 4 1/2″ (setting the tire farther from the frame and brake drum) would allow a tighter turn radius (without rubbing? or no issue?) than the deeper backspace on the 5″ (which would move the rim/tire closer to the frame?) ?? Why such a difference in backspace?

3. And of course if the mere presence of a weep hole would allow a quick accurate idea of a wheel’s exact measurements, that would be a plus. I think I’ve correctly learned that the accurate measurement of a wheel’s diameter and width is always inside the rim ?!?

4. I’ve also heard that the military wheels are a higher grade, and stronger ?!?
