August 1961 Jeep Service And Parts News

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

This four-page August 1961 Jeep Service and Parts News issue begins, as usual, with discussions of $$$. Page two notes the important of the correct type and amounts of grease for the cam. Curiously, page two also requests dealer service departments review the 1000-mile inspection information for the FJ-3A Fleetvan, specifically Service Bulletin No. 539. I can’t remember another model mentioned so specifically; Unfortunately, I don’t have that bulletin.

Page four highlights some of the early products from Cutlas (Cutlas had just formed circa 1960, it’s president having previously left the same role at Free-Lock .. still don’t know the reasons for the change).

Here’s a pretty complete convertible, though no indication of a top and the top side bits are missing. Given the KS 0-8 speedo, I’d say this is a pretty early one. It’s missing the filler in the back; maybe it no longer has the rear tank?

“This was my “Covid Lockdown” project. Purchased partially restored from an estate. It was built with parts from a ’46 and ’48 and is registered and licensed as a “48. The engine is the L-134 “Go Devil”, and the engine serial number indicates a manufacture date of 1944. The engine appears to be a recent rebuild that runs strong, with no leaks or smoke. I had the transmission and transfer case professionally rebuilt. I replaced the springs and shocks and went back to “military style” tires. Exhaust system, radiator, carburetor, fuel pump and fuel tank are all new. New paint inside and out. New weatherstrip around windshield and frame. Added electric wipers and seat belts. The top is in good condition, and comes with a brand new, still in the box replacement canvas. Brakes and clutch are in good condition. All receipts available for inspection. I took this up into the Colorado Rockies for a test run and it ran like a champ. Now that the project is done, I’m ready to let someone else enjoy this classic Jeep.”

1964 Jeep News Volume 10 Number 4

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

The eight-page 1964 Jeep News Volume 10 Number 4 kicks off with continued coverage of the Smithsonian Institute jeep donation with coverage of the official acceptence event. Page two highlights the appointment of Compton advertising to manage all advertising for Kaiser Jeep. Does anyone know if this was the first time Kaiser-Jeep (or descendants) used an outside ad agency in such a big way? The ad folks were also shown twenty-eight vehicles; it would be interesting to see this complete lineup in one photo. Page two also has more information on the Smithsonian gift.

Page three highlights jeeps’ appearances at seven different sports shows. Pages four, five and six discuss dealer updates. Page seven has several international stories, including one about a 1942 MB/GPW that was abandoned when it went over a cliff in Hawaii. Two years later, it was overgrown with foliage. Someone decided it was worth saving, so they pull it out, replaced the battery and spark plugs, and it started right up.

Page eight focuses on a Wagoneer chosen by Lockheed to tour the world. A small blurb at bottom right of the page notes that a USPS purchase of 3,868 fleet vans, raising the total purchased by the Post Office to 11,219, though no specific models are noted.

Winter 2023/2024 The Dispatcher Magazine

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

The Dispatcher Magazine landed here last week. Bill Norris takes a close look at the Jeepster’s history with an eight-page article, including a nice section on the carryover of parts from the station wagon. I didn’t realize just how much of it was similar to the wagon. Thanks in part to the addition of technical writer Sal Consalvo, the Dispatcher Magazine has expanded an additional four pages. Also, if you are frustrated at some of the current tools available for things like removing transfercase and pinion seals, checkout the article on Joe DeYoung’s jeep tools!

Finally, if you can, please get a subscription and support the magazine’s efforts!

John shared this photo detailing a stencil on the windshield: Max Capacity 5 Person. He hoped it would help any folks doing a restoration.

He wrote, Over on a Warbird forum someone posted this photo of a B-17 crew in the UK late in the war. I have blown up the photo for details….specifically, the tire pressure stencil on the base of the windscreen frame…and the “Max capacity 5 persons” notice..Might be of interest to someone restoring a wartime vehicle. The photo is from the national archives… so no copyright.”

New Shift Knob for the Racer

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

Sometimes, it’s the little things that make a person happy. In this case, eBay served me up the perfect vintage knob for the racer. I did have to resize the threads, but that was trivial. I’m really happy with it (even Ann was excited about it, and pretty perplexed about why she was happy about it, lol).

In other news, I figured out why’d the brakes on the FC weren’t working quite right. The custom-built pedal assembly is rubbing in a way that keeps it, even with springs, from returning to its standard position. So, I need to rebuild the swing pedal assembly, but that also entails rewiring the cab. It will likely take me a good week to sort all that out. It’s really a good thing, because there were some electrical items yet to be hooked up, along with working through the speedometer cable, which isn’t quite long enough to reach the speedometer.
