“Hello everyone. I am selling my 1946 CJ-2a. Overall it does need some TLC but everything is there and complete. It does come with the hydraulic pump and hydraulic ram that powered the original plow. The reason it was originally parked was the rear main seal was leaking onto the clutch which made the clutch slip. I do have a clean clear title in hand for the buyer. Vehicle does not run at this moment. It would have to get winched up onto a trailer. As you can see from the pictures both the original body Vin tag and frame Vin tag are intact and matching. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I am asking $3,750 o.b.o please do not lowball me or waste my time.”

1972 CJ-6 Cairo, GA $4850

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6 • TAGS: , .

Has some mods. The cut sides aren’t finished off quite the same; the passenger side is more finished than the flat, straight angle of the driver’s side. Overall, the look isn’t all that bad in my opinion. I think if there was care taken, with more material left on the front side of the cuts this might make an interesting look.

“A Prospector’s Dream or a mini RV!
A unique vehicle for the right individual. A fold out six foot bed behind the seats, and a “kitchen” underneath. Email me for videos showing the set ups. A 1944 WWII surplus jeep purchased in 1954. It is a Willy’s 4 cylinder. I think it might be a CJ 6.
Needs new gas tank (has 2 tanks, if you want to replace both) Seals and belts are dry, but should absorb fluids back when added. It was started, but turned off to avoid running bad gas through the carburetor. All the mini-van modifications can be removed to restore to original jeep without too much conversion.
If interested E-mail phone number to pungoriver@live.com and I will call you for further information. If you like make a bid.
It has been garaged.”

Chuck Prater’s Camper and Dump Bed Prototypes

• CATEGORIES: Camping, Features • TAGS: .

Charles “Chuck” Prater’s (1928-1913) jeep camper has been discussed in the past, but pics of his prototypes are less well known. Chuck must have been a curious kind of guy, because when he was an employee at the circulation department of the Palm Beach Post in Florida he invented an automatic paper bagging machine.

How he got involved with jeeps isn’t well documented, but in the 1960s he developed a unique camper setup that allowed a camper to be ‘hitched’ to the back of a CJ-5. He showed off his prototype to the Palm Beach Post in July of 1968:

1968-07-31-plam-beach-post-charles-prater-jeep-camper-lores

July 07, 1968, Palm Beach Post, Palm Beach, Florida.

From the CJ5camper.com website we have this additional photo of the prototype, year unknown. You’ll note that the camper in the pic above seems to lack the blue color added to the pic below, so this may have been taken after the Palm Beach Post photo?:

year-chuck-prater-camper-test

The Palm Beach reported a few months later on September 25, 1968, that Kaiser-Jeep agreed to manufactured Chuck’s camper idea:

1968-09-25-west-palm-beach-post-jeep-camper-accepted

For reasons unknown at this point, Chuck waited almost two years later (August 24, 1970) to file his patent (approved August 15, 1972). The patent included several illustrations. Below is one of them.
1499078752660894799-03684048At some point after he filed his patent, Waldron Motors presented Chuck with camper #1. Curiously, the caption indicates he patented the idea, then sold it. However, the information above suggests he sold the idea, then patented it?:

first_commercially_producted_cj5_camper_artical_1

This newspaper clipping was posted to thegentlemanracer.com’s site.

Being the inventor he was, Chuck didn’t stop inventing after the development of the camper. He expanded on  his basic camper invention with a similar dump trailer idea. This article comes from the cj5camper.com site and is undated:

first_commercially_producted_cj5_camper_artical_2

I searched but could not find a patent or another other information about the dump trailer.

According to his brother-in-law Sam Williams (see his comment in this post), Chuck built another camper that fit the CJ-7, one which Sam owns.

1950(?) Jeep Station Sedan Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

In 1950 the Jeep Station Sedan line was upgraded with the Lightening 6 engine. Apparently, that didn’t stimulate sales, as the Sedan model was canceled later in 1950. For some reason, there’s no form number attached to this brochure (I can’t figure out why some brochures have form numbers and some don’t). The four-page brochure opens horizontally. Since it didn’t fit on my scanner, I ‘scanned’ it with my phone, but it didn’t scan all that well. It doesn’t look as dirty in person as it does in the pics.

1942 Photo ‘Demonstrating’ the Walkie Talkie

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

This April 03, 1942, photo shows Corporal Joseph Vober and Cecelia Marchio ‘demonstrating’ the new wacky-talkie that is installed in a jeep.

I didn’t learn much about either person pictured in the photo. Cecelia married, becoming Cecelia Maselic (Ceclia’s brother Daniel was a Marine in WWII and Korea). I believe Joseph Vober would go on to marry Evelyn Lau.
