Veteran’s Day: Thomas Tugend

• CATEGORIES: News

thomas_togend_cnn_story

I ran across this story of Thomas Tugend on CNN.  It included a video with a great pic of him in a jeep (seen above sitting in the jeep).  The story also reminded me of some family history of my own.  My Great Grandfather was born in Nassau, Germany, and emigrated to the U.S. in 1859.  He loved both Germany and the U.S.  One of his 5 daughters moved to Germany and married a German Military Officer in 1892, who would fight the Allies in WWI (don’t know if he survived — she would die in the WWII 1944 bombing of Hanover).  I’d like to know what was going through my Great Grandfather’s mind as WWI broke (but then, I’m the family history buff).

However, Thomas Tugend is still alive and provides this interesting interview on his experience.

1949 CJ-2A Portland, Or $999

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A

It doesn’t run, but appears complete.  Based on the year, I’d say this is a CJ-3A, but the bow holders on the driver’s side suggest CJ-2A.

“It’s a pretty great jeep. I really, REALLY hate having to sell it but, as we all know the economy sucks.  Anyways, about the jeep:  Of course it doesn’t run it’s been sitting for about 2 years, under cover about 1 year 6 months. Mostly electrical work is needed, and I imagine there is a load of work to be done under the hood. Ran and drove 2 years ago.  Stock cover is still in great condition, just needs a thorough wash. Interier is dusty and smelly. Hundreds of extra parts laying around. (Doubles of what’s on the jeep already).  NOT a parts vehicle, or un-finished project. Just needs a good strong elbow or two on her for a while.
Will most likely need all 4 new tires, but they haven’t been filled with air in a long time so they might still work, who knows Lol. All are welcome to take a look if you like, shoot me an offer first and we’ll see where we can go from there.”

1946 CJ-2A DuQuoin, Il eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

Check out the knob sticking out of the emergency brake hole.  What is that?  Also, the carburetor just barely sticks out of the hood.  I suspect the air cleaner attaches above the hood?  The seller notes that with the exception of the engine, everything is original, which isn’t true.

“This jeep is in good condition with a 52 overhead valve engine, everything else is original…Steering has been rebuilt…new battery…This has the 4 wheel drive with low and high…and it works good..  It shows 36967 but I can’t confirm this. This would make a great hunting/fishing jeep or one to just have fun in…thanks for looking..rudy”
