Changing the Changes for 2020 — The End isn’t so Near

• CATEGORIES: News

Good news! I will be extending eWillys in its current form through the end of 2020.

You might remember that on January 1st of this year I mentioned I was planning on ending or making changes to eWillys in the spring of 2020. I’ve decided to delay any changes until December of 2020.

The principal reason for this is to insure that Ann and I have a smoother transition from life as we know it into our new lives in 2020, should things work out like we believe they will. What this means for you all is that you will accompany Ann and I on these upcoming changes. I know this is all a bit vague, but that’s the way it has to be for now.

So, stay tuned!

“I have a 1947 Willy’s Jeep cj2a 3 speed, 4×4. That has been in my family since 1947. It was my great grandpas, he used it on his farm in east tx. It sat in a barn for roughly 40 yrs until my grandpa restored it. It has been garage kept since then. After my grandpa passed away several years ago my mom got the Jeep and she gave it to me. I have no place to keep it besides in my back yard. It runs and drives, and attracts everybodys attention. I know it’s worth a decent amount of money, I’ve done my research. Im asking $8k or best offer or I’m considering trades just let me know what you have the worst I can say is no thanks.”

1949 Article on the Bountiful Jeep Posse

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine • TAGS: .

I took a chance on eBay and bought a 1949 issue of the Goodyear’s Magazine for Men off of ebay that mentioned, in the ebay ad, about having an article on a Jeep Posse. The magazine turned out to be a sort-of marketing piece by Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company focused on men and with several interesting articles. Below you’ll find two articles from the magazine and a quiz.

The first article is a pretty early article on Utah’s Bountiful Jeep Posse. The other article covers a man named John Fordon and his business in New York City called “Beck ‘n Call”. Finally, the Fordon article includes a quiz on streets from around the country, names as relevant to day as they were back in 1949.

It is good looking, with no significant scratches, dings or rust. The paint, chrome and interior are good, it runs great and the ride is very pleasant.

Headlights, brake lights, turn signals, gauges, doors, windows and locks all work well, and she has new tires, brakes, kingpins and radiator. The engine starts easily cold or hot, the transmission shifts smoothly and she will cruise at 60 on the freeway, but is not allowed out in rain or snow.”
