1964 CJ-3B Dually Virginia Beach, VA $29,500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B • TAGS: , , .

Nice looking restoration. It has a few cool extras (Hickey winch and ventilating windshield). My only quibble is that I wish the rear dually fenders were rounded rather than angled.

January 1942 Article From Scientific American “Meet the Jeep”

UPDATE: Don makes some good points in his comment below as to why there might not be any MBs pictured.

The January 1942 issue of Scientific American included an article titled “Meet the Jeep”, one I’ve been waiting about 7 years to snag. For some reason, though MBs were already being produced, no images of the MB were included. Instead, the first image shows a Ford GP. The second photo shows a Bantam BRC-40 T2E1.

1958 & 1960 Cutlas Power-Lock Brochures

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

UPDATE: The bottom brochure examples show a brochure from 1958, probably Cutlas’ first one. You’ll note that the brochure (and the hub itself) was branded “Power-Lock”. However, the 1960 brochure (shown just below this text) lacks any “Power-Lock”branding. Perhaps someone else knows why, but I can find no reason why. Maybe there was some concern about whether the patent would be awarded? (It wasn’t awarded until 1962). 

1960 Cutlas Hub Brochure:

1960-cutlas-hubs-brochure-automatic-hubs1-lores 1960-cutlas-hubs-brochure-automatic-hubs2-lores

 

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

Originally posted Feb of 2019:

This Power-Lock was the first hub patented (1958), copyrighted (1958), and sold under the Cutlas brand. As I mention in my Free-Lock article, for reasons unknown, the president of Free-Lock became the president of Cutlas. Even more curious, the last two model of Free-Lock hubs were WL-57 and WL-58.

And, what was the Initial model of the first Cutlas hub you ask? That would be WL-6, shown below (1958 Cutlas Hub Brochure):

Warn Overdrive Catalog from the late 1960s (?)

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Books, Features, OD Saturn/Warn

UPDATE: This was originally posted in 2012, but it’s worth a repost.

Dad never had an overdrive in his jeep, but did have this catalog (No. 1842). I suspect he built a few of these for Al Carroll.

“Listing for a friend not on FB. Message me your number and he will contact you ASAP.

1948 Willys CJ2a “Lefty”. They only produced these for a short period in 1948. No one seems to be clear why they machined this version of the 2a with the spare tire on the left. Some say it was Jeep’s way of complying with a law certain states had at the time. Others say it is for agricultural use for state municipalities. This is a rare option that will make you stand apart from the crowd. The small production numbers makes it even more rare. The Jeep isn’t running because of low compression. It has a new fuel, fuel pump, rebuilt carburetor. Brakes will need to be fixed with new master cylinder. Tub has usual floor pan rust”

1950 Jeepster and Wagon Ad Mats by Congress Electrotype

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I bought these two items off of eBay. If I understand correctly, these are mats, produced by the Congress Electrotype Company, were formed from an original engraving. They were then placed wrapped onto a cylinder with other mats to form a newspaper (or magazine?) page. A metal mold is then created from that, which is used to print the pages.

congress-electrotype-co-ad

congress-electrotype-company

I had erroneously assumed when purchasing them that they would be thick, heavy metal plates (before I understood how the process worked), but they are actually extremely light and pliable. I assume these were extras, never used? They may be a paper mâché of some type (they are that light), which was one of the processes historically used, or something similar,

I’ve taken pics from above and at an angle to show the depth. I have to say that I’m not really sure these were worth buying, but I doubt many survived (these are the first I’ve ever seen anywhere).

This Jeepster ad is 8″ x 8″:

This wagon ad is 10″ tall by 6″ wide:
