1960s Postcard with a DJ-3A Surrey at Tides Motel in NH

• CATEGORIES: Features, Postcards This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This is a second card sent by Chris. There’s no date on it, but given the Surrey top looks in good shape, I’d guess mid to late 1960s. The Tides Motel, still at the same location, sits in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. I suspect the jeep is no longer there …1960s-postcard-dj3a-tides-motel-chris1 1960s-postcard-dj3a-tides-motel-chris2

Chris sent this postcard with a Christmas letter. It shows one of the motor pools and Camp Landing. The postcard describes Army life as “busy” and “never a dull moment”. At the end, the author Bob asks how deer hunting was. It’s dated December 8, 1943. Many thanks Chris!

Power brakes and power steering. Stock axles with mile marker hubs. Newer slot mag style wheels, 30-9.50r15 tires that are starting to weather check. Fuel tank and filter were replaced last year.
The body work is starting to show its age but the tub isn’t terrible underneath. A few bubble spots, clear coat fading and paint damage on hood from a tarp. The bondo is about 5/10 on the Rathbone scale. Fenders have been customized as well as the tailgate, it has CJ7 style hinges and latch. Besttop tiger top has a few winters left in it, windows are starting to fog. Custom seats, carpet kit, back seat, radio console, gauge cluster and roll bar inside. Located in Pocatello, ID”

November 1958 Jeep News

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: , This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

At twelve pages, the November 1958 Jeep News is one of the largest issues published.

Page one contains various dealer info stories. Page two discusses the growth of jeep clubs and their potential as unofficial ‘salesmen’ for the product and brand. Also on page two is a discussion of the jeep-name origin. You’ll note the appearance in that discussion of the term “G P”, which I’ve yet to see definitive proof to if being used prior to the introduction of the Ford GP in early 1941. Bill Norris was able to locate a blurb, possibly from May of 1942, that suggests the letters “G P” that “appeared on all orders for the specifically made car”, however it’s not clear which orders such letters appeared on or when they appeared. But, it’s an avenue worth exploring.

Page three highlights dealer news, while page four shares how popular jeep exhibits had become at local and state fairs. Page five covers the importance of lighting to jeep dealerships, while page six and seven announce that dealerships have penetrated areas all over the US, though none of the dealerships shown are west of Oklahoma (still 1300 miles to LA from OK). Page eight and nine are again mostly dealer news, though page nine does cover a druggists satisfaction with the new DJ-3A dispatcher.

Pages ten and eleven have a wide variety of stories, but I thought the custom DJ-3A “The Goody Cart” ice cream jeep on page ten was particularly interesting. Page twelve covers a story about some jeepers capturing California horse rustlers.
