The Huffman Hub Company of Albuquerque, NM

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: , .

UPDATE IV: Well how about this …. There was an early Huffman hub that didn’t have the fancy ‘weapon-looking’ topper (as seen in the pics below). Instead, a cylindrical key was supplied to help select whether the hub was engaged or not. This ad is from the September 1962 issue of Four Wheeler Magazine.



UPDATE III (May 17, 2020): In September of 1964 the Huffman Hub company posted this full-page ad in Four Wheeler Magazine —

1941 Slat Grille Pics

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

These pics featuring the newly designed jeep appeared in the December 05, 1941, issue of the Ithaca Journal, two days before Pearl Harbor. I feel bad for those women having work the line in a dress and high heels.

The blurb below states:

THE JEEP TAKES ITS PLACE IN ARMY AND IN DICTIONARY: Officially designated as “quarter-ton four-by-four trucks,” but known to the U.S. Army as jeeps, the fast little scout cars, being turned out by thousands to serve as liaison between advanced mechanized units and infantry follow-ups, now are recognized as among the most important contributions of modern American assembly-line methods to the service. Powered with a 63-horsepower, four-cylinder engines, the jeep has a four-wheel drive, can carry three men and a machine gun, and can tow a heavy-calibre anti-tank gun. The pictures, illustration jeep production and testing, were made at the Willys-Overland plant in Toledo, Ohio. Left (in our case top): Women employees at work on a jeep assembly line. In the rear is an assembly line of civilian cars. Center: The cars being tested on the proving-ground. At right (in our case at the bottom): Negotiating an open field choke with heavy brush.

1940s Kits for Installing a Jeep Engine in Other Vehicles

• CATEGORIES: Old News Articles

This Northwestern Auto Parts and Wilenskey Auto parts ads in the January 05, 1947, issue of the Star Tribune out of Minneapolis highlighted engine kits that allowed a jeep engine and transmission (which was included with the purchase), along with the necessary mountings, to be installed into certain Ford, Plymouth, and Chevrolet vehicles. I wasn’t aware there were kits design to do this.

Year? MB? Redding, CA $2499


No title. Unsure how much value is here. It does have a set of Watson hubs.

“1947? Willys Jeep. No engine and comes with some extra parts. It has not been registered in decades, and the title is missing. I was told it is a 43, but I’m not a jeep expert and several people have told me it is 46 up. I don’t know how to confirm this. Your guess is likely better than mine. It could be fun for someone who has more time than I but it’s a project I can’t find the time to dig into.”

1942 MB Carlinville, IL $17,500


Mark posted this MB to


“It is an accurate representation jeep for what one would have looked like in WWII. A serviceable jeep, in a sense. All WWII, but not an all matching jeep.

It has an MB TUB, with a GPW frame. It is not by any means perfect, but would be a great ‘driver jeep’ and is mechanically near perfect.

Problems would be…

-Slight Rust on frame (can show pictures)… Around a foot strip that would use repair
-One blackout light needs replaced
-Windshield fold out needs fixed

Besides that it is a very nice jeep.

Please email me for more pictures & I will get them sent your way.

I can work with you on shipping anywhere in the lower 48 US states.”

Trailer Kelso, WA $500

Marty spotted this good price on a trailer.

“Military ammo trailer Vietnam era. Has a rotating tongue which helps out when you are wheeling. I have had this trailer for over 25 years. At one time I was going to paint it to match my jeep that is why the fenders are off, never painted and never put them back on. This pulled great behind my Jeep. No title never had one, I bought it off a add tacked to the wall in Woodys 4×4 in Vancouver.”
