1962? Mobile Motion Picture Unit Instruction Book

• CATEGORIES: Documents, Features, Willys Wagons

1962-just-wagon-mobile-motion-picture-unit

This booklet started out last year on ebay with a price of $279. A lack of interest caused the price to plummet until it fell into my hands. This rare mobile motion picture unit sports a Tornado engine, which places the copyright date of the instruction booklet at 1962 or 1963.

Unfortunately, attempts to research this unit further using Google result in a bunch of results related to the “First Motion Picture Unit” during World War II or the associated government archives, which while interesting, isn’t helpful to our present query.

The booklet runs about 25 pages and is mostly focused on the operation of the generator. There aren’t enough photos for me to determine whether this is a modified 4WD sedan delivery wagon or a Traveller. Most of the pics have number references; the numbers are referenced to specific parts in the back of the book.

1943 Photo on the Dropping of Bond “Honor Scrolls”

June 1944 Article About the Jeep Name Investigation

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

This article discusses the ongoing investigation into the jeep name business. Minnesota had a particular interest in this issue, due to Minneapolis-Moline’s development of a vehicle that was called a jeep prior to the completion of the Bantam BRC in late September of 1940. Unlike Willys-Overland, Minneapolis-Moline had no interest in owning the name; instead, they felt the name jeep belonged to the government.

This first article is from the August 21, 1940, issue of the Minneapolis Star and identifies the new Minneapolis-Moline tractor as a “jeep”:

Fond David Bradley Trailer Memories

David Bradley trailers are often an after thought among trailers, but for a woman named Diane, her family’s trailer continues to provide warm memories of Colorado camping with her parents and siblings. You can reader her brief story at the end of a forum thread that Maury started years ago about David Bradley trailers on the ECJ5 site.

“This is a 1950 Willy’s Jeep CJ-3A barn find – kind of… This Jeep has been in storage about 10 years, other than the wheels, seats and roll-bar, as far as I can tell is stock and runs. The Jeep has been in the family for several decades and was used almost exclusively as a trail vehicle for hunting – long before today’s side-by-sides became popular. I inherited it in 2020 but is now in my garage. While it does run, when engaging the clutch, a knock occurs and the clutch does not engage so the Jeep is in Neutral until fixed. All linkage moves, but nothing happens but the knock.

Other than checking fluids and purging the fuel line before starting it about a month ago, nothing else has been done. It also comes with a complete spare rear axle as seen in the pictures. No idea why the axle was with the Jeep, no reason to believe that the stock one is in need of repair, but it was with the Jeep in storage. While I’d love to take a crack at the clutch, I know it will likely take a bit more to become road worthy, I just don’t have the passion and knowledge necessary to do this Jeep justice. Here’s where you come in… Clean Title and current non-op registration.”
