This unusual poster shows a pretty complete list of production civilian jeeps (though no FC-150). It advertises Jeep Parts out of Portland, Oregon, and is priced at $99, but the seller is accepting offers. It was an Oregon company.

1946 CJ-2A East Fishkill, NY $3000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

This appears to have a replacement body, not an M-38 body.

https://hudsonvalley.craigslist.org/cto/d/hopewell-junction-1946-willys-jeep/7244616770.html

“1946 Willys Jeep for restoration. Jeep needs to be gone through, motor needs rebuild. Jeep is a good and straight canidate for restoration, has rust in front floors and side cowl panels.

I believe this jeep is a combination of a civilian CJ2a and a military M38. It looks like someone put an m38 tub on a civilian Cj2a frame. The previous owner told me he ran the numbers on the motor and it came back as a C2a.

There is no title on this vehicle as it predates when titles were issued, and I do not have a registration for it. Bill of sale only”

Christmas and New Year Jeep-O-Grams

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles

jeep-o-gram-images

In 1942, the Amarillo Globe-News and the Amarillo Daily News published messages called Jeep-O-Grams in both the hometown newspapers and a special Holiday Greeting edition of the Globe News Jeep. They did it as a way for families to send their family members world-wide Christmas wishes (though they did charge 4 cents a word).

What is the Glove News Jeep? Unfortunately, I’ve been unable to track down an example. According to the Volume 20 (sometime in 1942) issue of Newsweek, “Employees of The Amarillo ( Texas ) Globe – News get up a weekly soldiers ‘ and sailors ‘ edition in their spare time called Amarillo Globe – News Jeep . Carrying no advertising , the eight pages are packed with pictures and stories of men in the military”. 

While acknowledging it was an imperfect system for sending greetings to soldiers, the Amarillo Daily newspaper noted that the cable systems were expected to be jammed with messages during December 1942. So, a Jeep-O-Gram in the holiday edition of the Globe News jeep was better than nothing.

I’ll start with the published page of Jeep-O-Grams and then work backwards. The messages in the N-Z image are easier to read. I can publish a link to a higher res version of A-N if anyone is interested.

March 1941 Popular Mechanics Article on Pygmy

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images • TAGS: .

This article on the Ford “Pygmy” was published in the March 1941 issue of Popular Mechanics. You’ll note there is no reference to the vehicle being called a “GP” (though, to be fair, the term GPW never appears in the magazine either), nor is there a reference to it being “General Purpose”.

Walt Disney Driving a “Lefty” CJ-2A

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, videos

These photos popped up one Facebook recently, likely pulled from the Just A Car Guy blog. I believe these were originally from some kind of video of Disney driving, because I was able to find an animated gif on Pinterest of the same event. I could not locate the original video, but I’m sure it is digitized and out there on the net somewhere …

1944 MB Shingle Springs, CA **SOLD**

Seller does not want to ship. The jeep might need some wiring fixes.

“December 1944 delivery date willys MB. Fires up quick and easy, runs and drives great. All original body, frame, axles, engine, trans and transfer case. Data plates on glove box original and match frame tag.

There are some reproduction parts on this jeep like the black out light, carry handles, wheels, top bows, new a upholstery. Partial restoration done as accurate as possible for exterior looks.

Wiring has some issues PO hooked in a electric pump and it starts by dash button instead of floor button now, not sure if charging system is working. I would consider a new harness later and getting the missing air cleaner and fuel filter to make it more original.

There is absolutely no bondo or body work done and you can tell by being able to see the factory seam welds and little imperfections. There is some rust in floor boards that goes into the hat channels beneath. Common issue and better to have that than bad a repair job. Not willing to ship to another country or state.”
