Portuguese Jeep Ads

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Artists/Drawings, Features, International

I bought the following 5″x7″ Portuguese ads off of eBay for $2/ad plus shipping from Europe. The seller noted he had more ads, so sent me a link to 96 more (including lots of good early ads). He wanted to sell these outside of eBay, so I figured I’d get a better price, especially buying in bulk. Instead, he doubled the ads to $4/per ad. When I balked at the price, he claimed he was selling his ads for €6 on eBay ($7.09). Given I’d just bought them for $2, I was a bit confused by his claim. Maybe something was lost in translation, but, needless to say, I won’t be buying any ads from this seller outside of eBay.

These ads have some neat illustrative work.

“1943 Press Photo crates of Jeep parts are lifted onto an assembly line, England. This is an original press photo. Somewhere in England — A heavy maintenance company of U.S. Army Ordnance obviously had America’s ability for automotive production in mind when it decided to set up a Jeep assembly line at a depot in England. On a trial order from Army Ordnance Chiefs for the assembling of 2,000 Jeeps they established something of a record within a fortnight — with Jeeps rolling off the assembly line at the rate of one every 3 minutes. Following pictures show how it’s done. Crates of partly assembled Jeeps, just received from the US are being lifted onto the start of the assembly line.Photo measures 9 x 7.25inches. Photo is dated 10-28-1943.

“I have this super cool old rare jeep. It’s a 1955 Willys Kaiser DJ-3A. Military 134L engine has been just rebuilt and runs great. It has been converted to 12volt and charges great. 3 speed T90 manual transmission works good. The wiring, lights, blinkers, brakes and emergency brake all work. Good oil pressure and temperature stays good. Can get in and drive anywhere you want. However there are some quirks… The gas gauge and speedometer don’t work. And this vehicle doesn’t have a title and will be sold with a bill off sale. There is also no windshield or tailgate.

Blaine spotted the auction for this nicely refurbed truck. Current bid is $5000.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1947-willys-truck/

“This 1947 Willys Jeep Truck is a first-year example that was acquired by the seller in 2016 and subsequently refurbished at The Jeep Farm in Waddell, Arizona. The exterior was refinished in Bedford Grey with Challenger Blue accents, and the interior was reupholstered in Pendleton blanket fabric and blue vinyl. The 2.2L Go-Devil inline-four was resealed, and sends power to all four wheels via a three-speed manual transmission and a Spicer transfer case. Work in 2020 included a carburetor service, wiring repairs, coolant flush and some paint work. Approximately 2,350 four-wheel drive Willys Jeep Trucks were made in 1947 and this example is now offered with records, a reprinted owner’s manual, and a clean Arizona title in the name of the seller’s LLC….”

“1952 Willys Jeep CJ-3a 4X4 Flat Fender L-134
Runs well (for almost 70 years old), drives, safe and legal on streets, good tires, good brakes (for drums), all working gauges (including new fuel gauge and sender, and new speedo), and currently registered until summer 2021. Drive train (3 speed, two or four wheel drive) and engine are mostly original/original restore except converted to 12V with alternator. Original L-134 Willys engine. 4 wheel drive with front locking hubs (hubs not original).
Lots of extras/upgrades including:
> Full 6 point roll cage
> Bikini Top (very good condition)
> Includes Aluminum HARD TOP!!! with doors (needs some work – about 85% complete, missing rear window/hatch, missing one door window and handles, but very hard to find these and it’s a nice extra to have)
> Extended steering box
> Extra front push bar with Extra lights, front grill guard
> Setup for towing, INCLUDES mated tow bar
> External Overflow tank (similar to Desert Cooler)
> Good seats, with seatbelts front and back
> Spare Tire
> “Willys” stamped on both fenders and tailgate
> Horn and turn signals (that only sort of work – I use hand signals)
> New 165 deg thermostat
> Very little time on newer alternator
> Good battery with blade disconnect
Certainly not a “show Jeep”, but was perviously used as a “tow behind” with a motor home for hunting/fishing/around camp transportation.

So Cal car for at least the last 20 years, no structural rust (mild surface rust on some scratches). Drove it roundtrip from Northridge to Simi Valley last week in 90 degree weather.

Can drive or tow home (but remember the top speed is about 50 mph down hill!)

If you want a Willys Jeep, especially for a tow-behind, you should definitely take a look.”
