1953 Articles about Kaiser Buying Willys on the CJ-3B Page

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old News Articles

Derek put together a great multiple-article look at the Kaiser’s purchase of the Willys assets.

https://cj3b.info/History/KaiserWillys1953.html

Below you’ll find some added some additional info and research as well.

First, my only quibble with one article is that there is the implication that Willys-Overland was humming profitably along. Despite profits, it’s my understanding that the company was dealing with some cash issues, hence why they (especially Ward Canaday) might have been interested in selling. At the time, Canaday controlled Empire Securities, the single largest shareholder in Willys-Overland. For some background on Empire Securities, read this 1946 Fortune article.

In regards to some of the issues raised in the final article of Derek’s the post, Edgar Kaiser addresses some of them in this 1955 Congressional testimony, particularly one reason the company lost money during the first two years.

Here are a few more reports from 1953, organized by the University of Toledo:

And more from the University of Toledo:

Year? CJ-3A Valentine APU Central Point, OR $25,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, Features, Unusual • TAGS: , , .

I don’t see any of the APU equipment left, so while it’s a rare jeep, it’s also no longer an APU jeep. I don’t see anyone paying the asking price for it. That said, it’s got some interesting mods, including a custom lengthened rear cargo area, a custom spare tire well and holder, what appears to be the Hudson steering mod, and a custom modified top (shortened CJ-6 top perhaps). This also utilizes doors from a late model CJ-5 hardtop by Kelly. The rear portion may even be a modified Kelly CJ-6 top.

It has a heater that makes it nice and toast inside during the winter and on the deer hunt. Any other questions that arise please don’t hesitate to ask. Not going to give this away considering I have way more money into it then I’m asking. Price is OBO but please no nonsense.”

1955 Wagon Corvallis, OR $12,500

• CATEGORIES: Willys Wagons • TAGS: .

The seller notes that 1955 was the first year Warn offered the five-ring warn hubs. Actually, they (both the locking and the automatic hubs) were offered as early as 1953, according to at least two different ads. One 1953 ad (note the Feb 1953 Motor Trend Magazine for example was a full blown brochure, while this 1953 ad below was included in the September 1953 Popular Science magazine:

1953-09-popular-mechanics-warn-manufacturing copy

All that said, and back to the original purpose of this post, the wagon looks nice, though it does have an updated engine.

https://corvallis.craigslist.org/bar/d/corvallis-1955-willys-wagon-4×4-pto/7114073096.html

“For sale or trade. I am gunsmith so primary interest is firearms but no harm in asking. This is a great Willys that can be driven just the way it is or you can pursue additional restoration. Everything works, 4×4, factory Warn hub locks (first year those were offered), overdrive, front and rear PTO with a winch on the front bumper. Dual fuels tanks. Older paint still looks good, just not shiny. Seats were all just rebuilt (foam and covering) in a canvas looking modern material. Less than 200 miles on a completely rebuilt and balanced Chevy L6 250 with MSD Distributor and Electronic Ignition. Starts and hums along very smoothly. Steering is vintage and next on my restore list if I keep it. Need $12500 in cash or trade value to consider parting with this fun rig.”

1944 Photo of Elizabeth McDougald in Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

An October 21, 1944, photo and caption of Elizabeth McDougald of New York City highlighted her appointment to “London’s first Negro-staffed club, the Duchess”. She’d been appointed direct of the Red Cross club. Some letters by Ms. McDougald to military officers related to racial issues can be found here. A great deal of detailed information about her was uncovered through an auction purchase and subsequent research by Sherry Howard.

The history of this car is that there was only four 4 ever made. One was crashed and scrapped, one was rebuilt and now in England, and one is currently at Goodwood racing circuit, And, an  engine is in a museum in Italy. Mine is a replica.  Parts are very hard to find from 1913, with most needing to be fabricated, but it runs real good and stops good, and is drivable .

What I am looking for is a CJ-2A, CJ-3B or a rough MB modified is ok. Non running is ok, too, but it must be complete. I can get a trailer to move both items and they can be within 500 miles of Boone North Carolina, maybe a little more covering Virginia, Tennessee, south Carolina some in Georgia and of course North Carolina. I place my value about $3000, but a trade would be preferable.

It my untrained eye, it looks similar to this 1911 Fiat S76:
