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.

Trade: 1913 S76 Roaders For 2A/3A/3B maybe MB/GPW Boone, NC

• CATEGORIES: Features

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:

Hy Lo Pump Hydraulic Pump Question

• CATEGORIES: Features

Dan Moreton asked a question that I can’t answer. Anyone have thoughts? You can contact him directly here ttlmidcounty @ gmail.com (remove spaces around the @)

“I have a 1967 Power King Tractor that utilizes the large Square Model Jeep Hy-Lo Hydraulic pump to lift/lower the plow. It has a 1/4″ intake and output that connects to a dual action hydraulic cylinder. The unit is well suited for this operation.

I have a manual hitch and wanted to make it hydraulic. I saw a Jeep Hi-Lo self contained unit UHT 37046. When it arrived I noted it was smaller,( almost square) had almost identical hardware and fitting on top except it only has one 1/4″ street elbow.

How do I connect this unit to operate a dual action hydraulic cylinder? This tractor is my first experience with hydraulics so keep that in mind when you answer.”

Gran Manufacturing’s Hydraulic Loader

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE II: Todd’s got a near complete version fo the loader/fork lift. You can review all the photos along with a brochure that accompanied it on this page: http://www.willys-overland.com/forklift/

1955-gran-hydraulic-loader-todd-1

Todd Paisley’s Gran Hydraulic Forklift / Loader

UPDATE: Barry shared a link to the video, likely from late 1954 or early 1955, below that demonstrates the Gran Loader in action between minutes 9:24 to 9:50.

In October of 1954, Willys Motors announced the introduction of the Gran Manufacturing Hydraulic Loader. The Loader was unique in that it was essentially a rear facing forklift attached to a jeep. It was available in two sizes, one with 108″ lift capability and a smaller one with 69.5″ lift capability, and in two styles, adjustable or non-adustable forks. One feature noted was that it ONLY took 8 hours to install, which made it pretty much a permanent jeep feature it would seem to me.

Gran Manufacturing was based in Perrysburg, Ohio, but I couldn’t uncover any more information about that company. Below are some brochures that depict the loader.

Note that the 1954 brochure is from a series of photos on eBay that were taken at angles. I straightened them out to make them more readable, but the quality is still pretty poor.

This first image is out of the 1955 Specialize Equipment Booklet.

The October 29, 1954 Willys Motors announcement of the Gran Manufacturing rear facing fork lift:
