1967 Four Wheel Drive Rocky Mountain Test Article

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine • TAGS: .

The May 1967 issue of Popular Mechanics includes the article “Four-Wheel Safari Test In the Rugged Rockies”. The article covers a two-day test in the high mountains of Colorado from Telluride to Ouray. The main goal was to see if the Ford Bronco and/or the International Scout could compete with a V-6 equipped CJ-5. The conclusion was interesting.

Jeep Posse Article in May 1948 Issue of Outdoor Life Magazine

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine • TAGS: .

I’ve found a May 1948 Outdoor Life article called “Jeep Pose Fights Fire & Flood”, but I can’t find a reasonable priced issue (one on eBay is $30 with shipping). If anyone happens to have that article or  the magazine, I’d be interested in sharing the story.

1948-05-outdoor-life-magazine-jeep-posse

Cover of the May 1948 issue of Outdoor Life with the Jeep Posse article.

This issue includes (from a worthpoint auction),  “Jeep Posse Fights Fire & Flood”, ” Turkeys of the Tall Peaks” and ” This Happened to Me”. There is also a print suitable for framing titled ” The Battle with the Wolves” by Fred R. Zepp. There are to many vintage ads such as Champion Outboards, Remington, Dupont, Heddon, Dipsy Doodle Wood Manufacturing Co., True Temper The Rod of Champion, Calvert, and more to mention, there is a color ad for Old Thompson Brand Blended Whiskey on the back cover.

AD From January 2019: 

“1947 Willeys JEEP. Amazing original in every aspect. Collector car!!! This is an original paint from 47 Jeep with every option from factory. It is in perfect running order and does not drip a drop of oil. It has California (gold) vintage plates. Everything included including books, spare tire, bed extender (worth $1000 alone) perfect canvas with clear clear plastic panels. Interior is perfect. All running gear like overdrive, 4 drive, high/low work as though new. THIS IS NOT AN OLD ARMY JEEP. This is a CJ or sold to the public jeep from 1947. All works, 6V, battery charger included but it start up first try. It want to be driven more than I get around to. Original pinstripe lettering (hand.) It has great tires, seats, floors. and addition accessories from factor live icebox and other details. This will not last.”

Mexican Monument to First Jeep to the San Javier Mission in Mexico

• CATEGORIES: Features, Monuments/Statues

monument-to-jeep-mexico3

I ran across information about the above monument by Guillermo De Lara when he posted it to the Facebook page of Jeep CJ Mexico. There’s more history about this posted to this Baja thread: http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=31087. However, according to a book by Ann O’Neil, the actual jeep was a pickup and not an MB/GPW like that pictured. I’ve purchased the book and will update this post with the actual vehicle and the broader story.

According to Guillermo’s explanation, “This is a monument to a willys. It was the first vehicle that entered the San Javier Mission to the Sierra de la giganta with an altitude of 1,668 m above sea level in 1952. helped rebuild the mission and saved many lives. Loreto Peninsula of B.C.S. Mexico”

Original text of plaque:
“junio 26 de 1997 de Jesucristo
Este jeep pertenecio al Sr. Cura Dn. Modesto Sanchez Mayon,
llego a Loreto el 29 de nov. de 1947.
Este veiculo fue un instrumento util en la
reconstruccion de la Mission de Loreto B.C.S.
Quedando terminada el ano 1955.
Fue el primer veiculo que entro por este
camino a la Mision de San Javier, el 26 de nov. de 1952.
Como un homenaje del Pueblo de Loreto a los
10 anos de su fallecimiento el 26-6-1987.
Loreto B.C.S. 300 anos de evangelizacion y cultura.”
