70 Years of Jeep at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum

• CATEGORIES: Event

From April 19th through Dec 30 the Walter P. Chrysler Museum at One Chrysler Drive, Auburn Hills, MI, will be holding a special “70 years of Jeep” exhibit, which includes a special display of a Willys MA.  Personally, it is slightly frustrating that the officials holding these ‘jeep’ anniversaries don’t recognize this as the 71st year (1940 was the actual delivery date of the first jeeps) rather than the 70th year, but it seems since they are sponsoring the events, they are framing history in their own way.

A Tornado Decimates a Truck

• CATEGORIES: Features

Sadly, Keith filed a post-tornado special report today.  He noted that while he, his wife Patsy and their son survived the storm as it blew through Chattanooga, his truck wasn’t so lucky.  To make matters worse, he was just about to install a new starter and get it running, but until he completed that fix he kept it uninsured.  So, place your antenna flag at half mast and wish Keith and his family well.

Early Rusted CJ-2A Images Heathcote, Ontario, Ca

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, Features • TAGS: .

I ran across these images today of a rusted CJ-2A.  The photos were taken in 2008 by Dave Scottin Heathcote, Ontario, Canada, and posted on Flickr.  Check out the governer throttle along with the 3 datatplates.  I think this sitting in a junkyard or in an area with other rusted vehicles.  If you scroll over the map on Flickr, you can see exactly where it is.  I think there might even be some useful parts on this, too.  Given the governor throttle, I wondered if it might have a rear PTO (Click on the 3rd photo and I think you will see the top of a cutoff PTO lever).  You can even almost make out the serial number on the data plate (click on image 2).

1943 MBish Rehrersburg, Pa $4500

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Still Available

“This willys is titled as a 1943. IT IS BY NO MEANS AN ORIGINAL MILITARY JEEP. Jeep is solid all the way around. Runs good, has no mechanical problems, except for small leak in the right header at the collector, has current inspection till 8/11, and a clear title. Engine is a 1967 odd-fire V6 (Dauntless V6) with a 4 barrel holley carb, has all aluminum heavy duty radiator, trans is a T86 newly rebuilt by a professional trans shop. Has a borg-warner All Range Overdrive unit. New clutch as of june 2010. rear is Dana 44 out of a CJ5 with 11 inch drum brakes, Front rear is a Dana 30 out of the same CJ5 with disc brakes and lock out hubs. The front is about 2 inches wider than the rear due to the disc brakes. You could run spacers in the back to even everything up, I chose not to, simply because I don’t care for them. Has new rancho leaf springs that provide a 1 inch lift. Tires are 33×12.50×15 Dunlop Mud Rovers with less than 1000 miles on them, on 15×10 wagon wheels. Willys also has power steering, heater, defroster and Sun Tach. The top on the willys is just the old top that I got when I bought it. I have sewn new window plastic in the drivers, passengers, and rear windows, due to the yellowing with age. I have more plastic that I will give along with the willys. (remind me of it) there is also a bikini top for the willys. Has racing seats with 5 point harnesses in the front, and a small bench seat with 4 point harnesses in the rear. The willys is by no means a speed demon, I do not recommend taking it on the interstate highways, but crusing around town up to 50 miles an hour it a great ride. Will Trade for running driving 67, or 68 mercury cougar”

MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History

• CATEGORIES: Features, Museums

The MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History in Little Rock, Ar, only exhibits one jeep (shown below), but they do have a variety of WWII Jeep photos in their archive, many of which include captions.  Here are 8 of them.  The photos are part of the Allison Collection of World War II Photographs, the captions of which come from the ACME wire service.

According to the Museum’s website, “James Allison, a sports writer working for the Houston Press, noticed that many photographs not printed in the daily newspaper were routinely discarded. He received permission to save these images, and by war’s end he had amassed a collection of more than 4,600 photographs. In August 1977, Allison donated his collection to the Arkansas Museum of Science and History”.
