DJ-3A Tops Bows and Clips Black Canyon City, AZ

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Parts • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Still Available.

https://phoenix.craigslist.org/nph/pts/d/black-canyon-city-jeep-dispatch-dj3a/7208785722.html

The top bows are $700 a set. A price for the top clips were not included. Both the both bows and the clips are for the DJ-3A convertible model (solid back and CJ-3B-like windshield with twist-knobs across the top). The seller only has a few sets made. He notes that he isn’t making any money on them and has been more than willing to share information on the insights he gains trying to make his top.

The soft top is something custom the seller had made by an upholsterer. It took him some work to redesign and properly fit the top so that it would fold up and connect to the windshield properly, yet also fold down and attach to the body.

Here is pic of the reproduction bows vs. the original black bows:

July 1945 Press Release Photos #11 & #13

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Old Images • TAGS: .

Below you’ll find Press Release Photos #11 & #13. The seller did not have #12, so at this point I’m left to guess what #12 was. My best guess is that given #11 shows a half top and #13 shows no top, that #12 may have been an image that included some version of the full top.

Photo #11 shows the half or front top:

1945-07-willys-overland-press-kit-photo11-lores 1945-07-willys-overland-press-kit-photo11-caption-lores

Possible Photo #12:  These images were published in an article on the introduction of the jeep. The top photo is press photo #13, which adds weight to the bottom photo being #12:

1945-07-19-pittsburgh-press-jeep-introduction2

The original photo caption for the bottom photo would likely have been identical to #11 and #13’s captions, except that the last sentence probably read, “Here it is shown with both tops up“.

Photo #13 shows the jeep without a top:

1945-07-willys-overland-press-kit-photo13-lores 1945-07-willys-overland-press-kit-photo13-caption-lores

Press Photo #14? Finally, there’s this photo which shows the windshield down. It could easily have been Photo #14 as it was taken in the same location, but I have no evidence such a photo was included in the press kit.

If this was actually included in the press kit at photo #14, the caption for the photo would likely have been identical to #11 and #13’s captions, except that the last sentence probably read, “Here it is shown with the windshield down“.

Two Die-Cut Warn Hub Brochures Compared

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Barney sent me a Warn Locking Hub brochure which turns out to be a match for a similar Warn Lockomatic Hub brochure I already had. These are rather small (about 4″ in diameter), so I’m surprised either one survived as well as they have.

One thing that’s evident from these brochures is that the Lockmatic hubs lacked the rings (or perhaps indents or groves are better terms) on the lower portion of the hub that the Locking Hubs had.

This photo shows the fronts:

1947 Article About Italian “Jeep Squads”

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

Original Post: A December 12, 1947, article in the Austin American-Statesman showed an image of an Italian “Police Squad” jeep breaking up a crowd. The phrase “Reparto Celere” translates to Express Department in English, but I doubt that’s a correct interpretation.

“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.
