Pics from Fort Riley, Kansas

• CATEGORIES: Features, Library Collections, Old Images • TAGS: .

These images of maneuvers out of  Fort Riley, Kansas, are some of the most calvary-like jeep pics I think I’ve seen.  I suppose the older army cavalry hats contribute to that, too.  These are all shot by photographer Jack Delano and hosted at the Library of Congress.

I seem to have the wrong LOC links, so I’ll have to grab them tomorrow and add them.

The Story of the Magnet and the Tunnel

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures

Stephen spotted this unusual ebay Item.  I could only find one reference to “The Story of the Magnet and the Tunnel” and rather than it being related to Willys Overland or Willys Motors, it was related to an advertising push to spur the sale and promotion of Lee Hats.  The timing of this push was the early 50s and, in the case of the tie-in with the Drew Pearson Show, it was sometime around 1952-1953.

So, how this strategy for Lee hats resulted in the tie-in with Willys is still a bit of a mystery to me.  One interesting note is that the image at the bottom of this post is labeled ‘Willys Motors’ and has a rather CJ-5ish/CJ-3bish look to it.  The entity ‘Willys Motors’ was the name given to Willys Overland following the April 1953 purchase of W/O by Kaiser/Frazer Industries, so I would assume the brochure was created after that.

According to the brochure’s seller, “We are offering a very unusual and scarce book. It’s about sales figures and advertising. It was apparently sent to the dealers by Cruse W. Moss V.P. in charge of sales, that’s what it shows on the last page. Nine pages of print on both sides.Our photos show the condition of the item up for bid.”

Builds: Eric’s 1942 GPW

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features, GPW (Ford MB)

Born in Normandy (near Saint-Lo), France, Eric says he always wanted to have a Jeep.  While serving in the French Marines, he got the opportunity to drive Jeeps — In Africa and other places — which only only served to worsen his desire for a Jeep (yes, became a victim of the ‘Willys Sickness’).

Finally, in 1997, he found a 1942 GPW in the town of Carentan that needed restoration.  If Eric is like the rest of us, he probably felt it would only take a year or two to restore it (I don’t have any pre-restoration pics); instead, the restoration took 7 years.  However, the results speak for themselves — it’s a beautiful Jeep he named the Belly Flopper and in which he travels the countryside whenever he gets the chance.

While Eric’s family still lives in the Normandy area, Eric has moved to the central area of France, which is a bit cooler, especially in the winter.  The reason Eric and I exchanged emails initially was because he was searching for a heater.  I gave him some links on some newer heater options, but had no luck with any early heaters.  If you know of any for sale, he still might be interested in purchase them.  Just add a comment below and I’ll contact you.

Thanks for sharing Eric!
