Dec. 1945 Outdoor Life Magazine Story on the Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features, Magazine

UPDATE: Originally Posted July 26, 2014. There is currently an issue for $7 on eBay.

The December 1945 Issue of Outdoor Life Magazine contained an article titled “A Jeep Will Get You There”. It is filled with photos of a VEC CJ-2A used for a fishing trip. The photos aren’t the best, but still an interesting article. Outdoor Life also featured the story on the front cover.

Western JEEP Toy Ads on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, toys

UPDATE: Here are three Western JEEP toy ads on eBay.

1. This ad appeared in the May 1946 issue of Toys and Novelties. It looks to be an early ad for the Western Jeep. I didn’t realize it was manufactured out of Seattle.

View all the information ebay


2. This ad appeared in the Playthings Magazine in September of 1946. It announced that the Western Jeep had proven too popular and was sold out. There was a kiddie ride called the Western Jeep that look like it used this style of jeep (see post below this one).

View all the information on eBay


3. This ad appeared most likely in a 1946 issue of Toys and Novelties. The seller of this ad is purposefully obscuring the date and magazine, so it isn’t clear whether when this ad was published.

View all the information on ebay



4. This ad appears in a 1947 magazine, probably Toys and Novelties. It announced a new low price (though the price of the ad on eBay is anything but low):

1945 MB? Springfield, OR No Price


Lots of mods. I’d be surprised if this was “plated” as having served in Pearl Harbor during WWII (obviously wouldn’t have arrived until sometime in 1945 at the earliest if it is a 1945).

1945-mb-springfield-or-2 1945-mb-springfield-or-3 1945-mb-springfield-or-4

“One of a kind. 1945 Jeep. 6 inch lift. On 35s. Full arb air lockers in each axle. On board air compressor and air tank for tires also. Custom roll cage. CD player. Has soft top and doors all in good condition. I’ve owned this for over 10 years. My boys are beginning to out grow it. So thinking I may sell this. Or trade it. It runs great. Plenty of power. 4 speed manual. Dual transfer case. Warn winch. Everything works except the speedo but I just go with flow of traffic. Not sure how to put a price on such a rare unique piece of American history. Plated and documented it’s been in Pearl Harbor. World war 2. So I’m taking offers. I paid 8k for this and have put in a few grand over the years for suspension and tires are new. Mileage is unknown”
