Photo of “Taking Kathie Home” Jeep on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

I am wondering if this was originally named “Kathie”, but then the solider got permission to bring the jeep home? The photo is dated 11/21/1945, so it is post-war.

1950? Comic: The Story of the Universal Jeep on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Comics, Features

Bidding starts at $15. This is listed as a 1950 creation, but I would think it was published earlier than that. Given it includes a truck, but no CJ-3A, I’d say more like 1948? I’ll have to verify with my copy.

1975 Wolverine Baja New Braunfels, TX $10,000

• CATEGORIES: Features, M-151, Other 4x4s

I don’t know much about these or what these are worth. Here, it is listed as an M-151A2, but I couldn’t verify that the model number was used to identify this. My guess is that it’s built on an M-151 chassis, but that could be wrong, too. It reminds me of the lightweight airborne jeeps.

1954 M-38A1 Coyle, OK $6750

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

The odd addition of the external radiator is due to the installation of a V-8. It includes a trailer. This also has the early Husky hubs.

“One the straightest Willys M38A1’s I’ve come across. Runs good all the gears work high and low 283 engine. 12volt. If someone was going to do a restore this would be a good one to do it with. Comes with trailer. $7500 cash”

The CJ-2A was the SECOND model sold to civilians? What was the first? Maybe seller meant the second year of sales?

“This is a REAL Jeep; it is the SECOND model Jeep sold for/to civilians after WWII. It was rebuilt by the previous owner and has a 4-cylinder, Go-Devil engine, 4-leaf suspension, 3-speed manual transmission, transfer case shifter, and range shifter, military-style tires (in excellent condition), 5-gallon external/spare fuel can (w/spout), and a canvas “summer top” (no sides) w/frame (not pictured).

Neil Young & His 1951 Jeepster

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

UPDATE: Mark found this photo which seems like it could have been taken at the same time the video was shot: https://www.morrisonhotelgallery.com/photographs/T9XmZX/Neil-Young-Broken-Arrow-Ranch-1971

1971-print-neil-young-jeepster-broken-arrow-ranch

Mike spotted this video of Neil Young driving his 1951 Jeepster. Unfortunately, I cannot embed the video, so a screenshot will have to make do. You can see the video snippet of the Jeepster at the start of a video with Neil Young playing “Old Man”. It appears the old man rancher that inspired the song can also be seen.

I believe this is the same Jeepster that Vernon (and his aliases) have mentioned over the years. Neil’s Jeepster has the Lightning (inline 6) engine. It also has the JEEP brass tag and a 673 has the emblem, plug Vernon’s overdrive solenoid.

Per Vernon, “noted rock star NEIL YOUNG opted for the 51 — in 69 he drove it from LA to his new ranch in LA HONDA , guitars in the back , gold records , the TURTLES drummer JOHNNY BARBATA rode shotgun — he had to get out of LA and hide in the wilderness , people were picking him apart”
… and …
“NEIL YOUNG wont drive his fossil fueled classic cars anymore — he’s went utterly , completely GREEN ( listen to his GREENDALE album ) — his 1951 WILLYS OVERLAND JEEPSTER PHAETON is now a ” museum piece ” gathering dust”.
