1945 Photo Dozer Pulling Jeeps in Luzon on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

Note the jeep in the front. It looks like the front clip is sitting sideways. Maybe these were pulled because they didn’t work? Contrary to what the caption indicates, the water doesn’t look too deep for the jeeps.

Photo of “Taking Kathie Home” Jeep on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

I am wondering if this was originally named “Kathie”, but then the solider got permission to bring the jeep home? The photo is dated 11/21/1945, so it is post-war.

“This photo belonged to Lt. Robert J. Dobuski – Serial #33052063. He was with the 3482nd Ordnance MAM Company. WWII US GI Photo – Street View Of 3482nd Ordnance Jeep “Taking Kathie Home” – The photograph measures Roughly 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.

1950? Comic: The Story of the Universal Jeep on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Comics, Features

Bidding starts at $15. This is listed as a 1950 creation, but I would think it was published earlier than that. Given it includes a truck, but no CJ-3A, I’d say more like 1948? I’ll have to verify with my copy.

1975 Wolverine Baja New Braunfels, TX $10,000

• CATEGORIES: Features, M-151, Other 4x4s

I don’t know much about these or what these are worth. Here, it is listed as an M-151A2, but I couldn’t verify that the model number was used to identify this. My guess is that it’s built on an M-151 chassis, but that could be wrong, too. It reminds me of the lightweight airborne jeeps.

1954 M-38A1 Coyle, OK $6750

“One the straightest Willys M38A1’s I’ve come across. Runs good all the gears work high and low 283 engine. 12volt. If someone was going to do a restore this would be a good one to do it with. Comes with trailer. $7500 cash”

The CJ-2A was the SECOND model sold to civilians? What was the first? Maybe seller meant the second year of sales?

“This is a REAL Jeep; it is the SECOND model Jeep sold for/to civilians after WWII. It was rebuilt by the previous owner and has a 4-cylinder, Go-Devil engine, 4-leaf suspension, 3-speed manual transmission, transfer case shifter, and range shifter, military-style tires (in excellent condition), 5-gallon external/spare fuel can (w/spout), and a canvas “summer top” (no sides) w/frame (not pictured). Also has an A-frame tow-bar which bolts to the front bumper. Maximum (street) speed is 45 MPH. Four wheel drive works and has front-axle locking hubs. It is a definite attention-getter, and crowd-pleaser. Would make anyone’s Christmas the BEST EVER! Price is FIRM”
