Coast Cities Motor Sales Ads in 1949

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Old News Articles

UPDATE: Some updated information and ads.

Coast Cities Motor Sales announced the opening of the Jeep dealership in a December 10, 1948, article in the Pascagoula, Mississippi, Chronicle Star. Subsequently, for eleven months, from December 1948 through October 1949 they published ads in the same paper.

Later, In May of 1950, a new seller, Jackson County Motor Company, appeared. Perhaps, not coincidently, Jackson County Motors launches on the same highway (HWY 90) as Coast Cities Motor Sales had been located.

Prior to Coast Cities Motors Sales. jeep dealer Caver-Wiggins advertised from July 1946 to November 1947 in the Chronicle Star. Subsequently, in a corporate restructuring, Runnel-Wiggins became the main seller/advertiser. Runnel-Wiggins ran ads from November of 1947 through April of 1948. No additional information appeared in the Chronicle Star about Runnel-Wiggins.

After April, the next Jeep ad for 1948 was the December 10th, 1948 ad by Coast Cities Motors. Whether Coast Cities Motor Sales was related to the previous dealer isn’t clear, as they were located in a different places.

Below are some Coast Cities Motor Sales ad example:

(The ad shown is actually the January 07 ad. The December 17, 1948, ad has only minor text differences from the January ad. This is a long one-column ad, so it’s been chopped to better fit the page)

I left everything else original as I bought it. Fires up every time, drives straight as an arrow and can get up to 60mph. There are just a few minor things that need tending to that I’ll be working on: needs fuel pump gasket, exhaust tip needs to be tacked back in place, and pops out of second gear.

1948 Roy Rogers Film: Night Time in Nevada

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

Kevin mentioned the film Night Time in Nevada the other day, noting it showed a CJ-2A pulling a trailer. Well, it does’t just pull the trailer, it races through the desert with the trailer at one point. Oddly enough, the sound effects at that point in the film make it sound like the jeep and trailer are swerving with screeching tires on streets rather than on a sandy trail dual-track trail.

The Jeep-trailer scene begins about the 12:46 point.

1945 MB Connecticut $3500

• CATEGORIES: MB

Matt’s selling this MB. He can be reached via call or text at 860 304 3639.

“Selling one of my projects I won’t have time to get to anytime soon. Up for sale is a late war Willys MB. I believe it is a 1945. All of the data tags are gone so there is no serial number or DOD. There is an ACM number on the tub and it can clearly be read. The frame, axles, steering components and certain body parts are in good shape but the sheet metal is very rough. One of the front frame horns will also need to be replaced.

Lots of rust in the body as you can see in the pictures. There is a later CJ2A engine in it but no transmission or transfer case. There are still a-lot of good hard to find parts on it. This is a good start to a restoration as the chassis is very solid and usable or as a parts vehicle to complete another Jeep with a better body and drivetrain. I do have some parts and pieces that can be purchased separately to make it more complete. Located in Connecticut. Asking $3500 obo.”

“I have a 1959 Willys CJ6 Jeep that I am looking to sell. The Jeep is 98% original and complete. It starts, runs and drives like it did in 1959 or better. I replaced the battery last year and that is all I have honestly had to do with it to make her road worthy.

My plan was to restore it however, in the interests of building a bigger shop, I have decided to let this one go. Serious inquiries and offers only, please. If you don’t know what you are looking at, and are interested, I will tell you. If you are only here to make comments, please move along.

There were only 2,002 of these built in 1959 and about 40,000 total CJ6’s from 1955-1975. Just for a brief comparison, there have been 2.1 *million* Jeep Wranglers (JK) built from 2007-2018 and nearly 4 million Jeeps with the Wrangler model name since 1987. The CJ6 is a rare model with a 20″ longer wheelbase than the CJ5.”
