It has 2 sets of tires and wheels, new tune up parts under the seat. bucket seats are from mid 60’s GM car. Looks like it has at least 110k miles. $1750. OBO would consider quad in trade. If you are reading this it’s for sale and as the post says I have a clean title.”

Selling a super rare , 24k original documented mile, rust free, fully restored classic that is perfect for driving or investment purposes.    The story of how Jeep debuted the Tuxedo Park model to lure a higher end customer into buying a Jeep product makes for a great story to tell, There is no better way to tell that story than to have one of these fully restored examples right in front of you, ”

Painting of Coffee Plantation CJ-5 on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features

I’m not sure what this is worth. It is currently priced at a buy-it-now price of $92.

View all the information on eBay

“Wonderful artist rendering of CJ-5 Jeep. 1970s in a coffee plantation or cocoa plantation setting. (I’m thinking inspired by the popular TV icon Juan Valdez). Not sure if this was done for Ford Brazil or AMC given that Ford do Brasil built these for the South American market. In any event, this is a fantastic, original rendering on artist board of the era. You can see pencil lines underneath paint. I’m not an artist so I don’t know if it’s acrylic paint or watercolor or ???

Measures approx 16″ x 11″ and is in very good condition for its age. There Issa bit of very faint spotting in the yellow sky area but it’s barely noticeable; corners are bumped but framing will cover that. The blue strip at bottom of rendering appears to be painted tape.”

1961 Photo of Jack Paar – Tux Park Window Display

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This is interesting, as this 1961 photo must have been part of the early introduction to the Tuxedo Park CJ-5 trim package concept.

https://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc1484597/

From the site: Photograph of a window display advertising for Jeep. A large sign in the middle says, “Newest PAAR star! New ‘Jeep’ Tuxedo Park, exciting new 4-wheel drive sports utility vehicle, see the new ‘Jeep’ Tuxedo Park in action on the Jack Paar show NBC-TV.” A small picture of Jack Paar is placed next to the sign in the window. Another smaller sign sits below the picture that says, “as advertised on WBAP-TV Channel 5.

December 1941 Pop Sci Article on Bantam BRC-40 T2E1s

UPDATE: Originally published on February 02, 2014, the pop sci links no longer work, so I’ve now added the complete scan of the article.

This Bantam BRC-40 T2 article was published in December of 1941 in Popular Science (and possibly Mechanix Magazine) under “Tanks CAN Be Destroyed”. In it the author explores different machinery that can stop a tank. You can see variations from what could be the same photo shoot in this Bantam T2 & T2-E1 post.
