Anyone Recognize This Tin Toy Jeep?

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

Andy mentioned he didn’t recognize this tin toy jeep. Neither do I. It looks similar to a Marx. The toy is about 4″ long. The grille’s uneven-ness suggests it is home made, but the rest seems manufactured to me. Any guesses? It sold for $29.99.

1952 Willys Jeep CJ3A runs great
Bought this jeep as a non-running project, it had been stored indoors for 23 years.
It now runs great and is in very good condition.
Compared to most classic jeeps this has minimal rust.
It has a few little dents and battle scars, and would look really sharp
with a new paint job, unfortunately I’m not good at body work.
As you can see it has been slightly modified. The original L-head engine was replaced many years ago with a good F-head jeep engine. This gives you a little more horsepower. Because the F-head sits higher in the engine bay a hole was cut in the hood to make room for the carburetor.

William F. Baggerman’s Trips to Central & South America in a Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Books, Features, Old Images, Old News Articles • TAGS: .
1947-driving-to-mnagua-nicarauga-william-f-baggerman-photo

William F. Baggerman in 1946 standing in front of his 1946 VEC CJ-2A. Behind the jeep is a trailer (a box on wheels). Standing to the side of the jeep is Charles Mum of the Laredo, Texas, AAA. William is just about to enter Mexico in 1946.

Wiliam F. Baggerman was born and raised in the St. Louis, Missouri, area around 1914. He attended Washington University and Edinburgh University. He started Modern Management Co., a real estate management firm, in 1936, and later was employed with Sycamore Investors, Inc., a shopping center development company.

He entered what would become the Air Force right after Pearl Harbor and spent 20 months in the Pacific theatre, stationed for at least part of the time in Guam. While in Guam, for some unknown reason, he decided to travel to Central America after the war.

A year after the war ended, he purchased a jeep and, along with a trailer, headed south to Laredo, Texas, where he began his adventure.

After his trip, he wrote an 60 page book: Driving to Managua, Nicaragua (A Guide to the PanAmerican Highway Through Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua).

The book is part guide book and part travelogue, as most of the text describes dryly how to travel through the various countries. Yet, the pics feel far more personal; there are at least 10 photos, almost all of which include the jeep. You can view the entire book online at Hathitrust.org.

The jeep he used appears to have been a VEC with indents and a column shift, but without the rear hubs. So, I’d guess a 15xxx to 30xxx serial number. The trailer is a box on wheels … anyone know what model?

Let’s look at some pics!

This is a map of the Pan American Highway. It’s not clear to me how much he veered off the highway:

1947-driving-to-mnagua-nicarauga-william-f-baggerman-map

This pic shows him just entering Mexico:

1947-driving-to-mnagua-nicarauga-william-f-baggerman-into-mexico

Those are some beautiful mountains. But who is looking at the mountains when you can peek inside the cab and see the column shifter:

Apparently, even the jeep couldn’t take William everywhere:
