March 1957 French-Canadian Ad for the FC-150 + Sign

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, International • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Todd shared a sign that matches the Jeep sign which appears in the lower part of the ad at the bottom of this post. I’ve not seen one quite like this, so I imagine it was only available in Canada?

The sign was double sided, but he separated the halves so he could hang them on the wall. Here are some pics:

This is the back of the sign. It was made by Tek, a company still in business in Canada.

This March 1957 ad in an unknown magazine highlighted the FC-150 distributers.

Photo of Seabee MB on Gaudacanal(?)

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

Gayland shared this photo of a Seabee MB NCB 6 (later changed to an MCB in 1949). He added, “I don’t know the location but suspect it is Guadalcanal. MCB6 was the first Seabee unit in combat when it joined the Marines on that island. Seabee equipment, at least in the Pacific theater, was painted the same color Marine equipment. Haze Gray shows up a little too well in the jungle.”

The Swedish translates to English as: “Staff trip to Storvallen 1948. From left: Uno Branden, Britta, Ingrid Hellström, Einar Montén and Astrid Walster.”

“Hello everyone. I am selling my 1946 CJ-2a. Overall it does need some TLC but everything is there and complete. It does come with the hydraulic pump and hydraulic ram that powered the original plow. The reason it was originally parked was the rear main seal was leaking onto the clutch which made the clutch slip. I do have a clean clear title in hand for the buyer. Vehicle does not run at this moment. It would have to get winched up onto a trailer. As you can see from the pictures both the original body Vin tag and frame Vin tag are intact and matching. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I am asking $3,750 o.b.o please do not lowball me or waste my time.”
