Jeepsters and the Sunkist Lady

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Jeepster, Old Images, Old News Articles This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

UPDATE: This Jeepster photo is making the rounds on Facebook; this post provides a little more info.

=================================

Posted December 24, 2020: This article provides more information about this stunt Jeepster and plane. It was published in the March 20, 1949, issue of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:

1949-03-20-fort-worth-star-telegram-jeep-jockey-endurance-jeepster-plane1-lores 1949-03-20-fort-worth-star-telegram-jeep-jockey-endurance-jeepster-plane2-lores

===================

Originally Published Dec 8, 2012:


The Sunkist Lady was an Aeronca 15AC Sedan airplane flown by Dick Riedel and Bill Barris used to set a world-record for endurance flight.  They spent a total of 1008 hours and 2 minutes aboard the airplane, ending their flight in April of 1949. Unfortunately for them, their record was broken six months later.

What makes this relevant for jeep fans was that to keep the plan in the air, the crew used Jeepsters borrowed from local dealers to race down the airport runway so the crew could hand fuel and food to the two pilots.

Thanks to Colin for forwarding the story!

Here is a link to a story and a video about the flight (124 MB): http://www.cityoffullerton.com/depts/airport/the_sunkist_lady.asp

Here is a second article:  http://vintageairphotos.blogspot.com/2012/03/saga-of-sunkist-lady.html. The picture below is from that article.

“I have what I believe is a earlier 3A for sale. 3A style frame anyway, I could poke through the other differences to tell for sure.

On the positive side, I did get it running and it starts and runs quietly. Original Carter carb. Not a lot of modifications made except for a few very serious modifications that may or may not be a lot of work to correct.(like the fenders) The dash etc is pretty straightforward with a minimum of holes drilled and things of that nature. Seat frames are good, hood could be okay for a driver. Grill has a little dinger in one of the bars that could be bent back. Older but still soft mud tires on 15” wheels. Drawbar is nice. Great oil pressure. I think basically someone was using this jeep for plowing and taking care of it mechanically until they weren’t. It had clean oil etc in the engine. The starter was missing so perhaps that is what took it out of service.

McCulloch/Kaiser VS57 Supercharger Midland, MI $1000

• CATEGORIES: Features, Parts This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Andy shared this rare item.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1151516099178460

“Kaiser Manhattan VS57B supercharger, with bracket/idler. This is the forerunner to the Paxton SN (Short Nose) blower. My dad pulled this off a car (no idea what) in a junkyard probably 50 years ago. The VS is Variable Speed, with a solenoid under the cover that adjusts the inner sheave of the drive pulley to change its diameter and drive speed. The “B” indicates it’s from a Kaiser Manhattan, regulated to 4 psi of boost, and has a 6-volt solenoid. Condition is unknown, but it rotates freely, as does the idler pulley, and should be considered a rebuildable core. I’ve got a 50-year old belt you can have to figure out the size. Will ship on your dime.”

“Hi there, for sale is my 1947 Willy’s Overland CJ2A. This little jeep has been an awesome vehicle, and doesn’t need much. It has the F-Head Hurricane Willy’s engine that was torn apart and completely gone through, along with the transmission and transfer case. Gaskets and seals were replaced and fresh oil throughout the drive train.

This will start on the first crank even after sitting for a couple weeks. The differentials have fresh fluid and the manual hubs have been gone through.

The transfer case has a high and low range Newer drum brakes and it stops reasonably well.

I drive it all over town and have had it on the freeway for short periods. It will go 35 great, but should probably get some new tires if you plan on long freeway trips.

The Jeep is coated in a Linex type coating that is extremely tough. No rust on the Jeep, any old spots were cut out and repaired by the previous owner. Asking $8,500 open to trade offers.”

1947? ‘Jeep’ Station Wagon Ad on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This ad was published in Time Magazine, date unknown, which often published unique ads that I haven’t seen other places. The use of Willys-Overland about the model name suggests to me it might be a 1947 or late 1946. I don’t remember the Jacobsen Manufacturing or its mowers appearing in any other ads.

“Edit: buyer who I was holding the Jeep for did not come so it’s back up for sale is my 1947 Willys CJ2A. I’ve owned this Jeep for several years, I did not do the restoration on the Jeep. If you’re looking for a “correct” Willys this is definitely not the one for you. The Jeep has a mix of aftermarket parts as well as an aftermarket body kit, you DO not have to worry about rust repair with this Jeep as other flat fenders of this era. It runs and drives okay, I ended up buying a Ford GPW military jeep so I’ve lost interest in maintaining and driving it. Clean and clear PA title in my name. With a Jeep this age there are a few issues- typical Jeep oil leaks. Occasionally the transmission will grind when downshifting into second, it DOES not pop out of gear, just will grind when going to a downshift. The fuel gauge also is not accurate whatsoever, I believe this to be a float issue, the rod might need to be adjusted accordingly to the fuel level in the tank. Vehicle is sold AS IS.”

UPDATE: Price dropped to $6250. As Muley notes, and I completely missed, this is 2WD. The engine and radiator suggests 2A, but the front frame rails have been modified, so those are no help in identifying it. The axle might be DJ, but it is five lug. So, appears a mix of parts based on the pics.
