1944 ‘Jeep’ Planning Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I finally snagged one of these ‘Jeep’ Planning brochures. Based on some of the images (like the WILLYS and JEEP within a link), I’d say this was produced in the Fall of 1944. As best as I can tell, it might be the earliest brochure for what would be the CJ-2A, though you’ll note that only CJ-2s are pictured (unless I missed an X-cj). The brochure breaks down the four principal uses for the “peace time jeep”.

Have title in hand and the Jeep has been registered every year since 2003. The Willy’s has been garage kept. It was a frame off restoration starting back in 2003. All metal floor boards and body panels are completely free of any rust. The Engine was rebuilt by a professional Willy’s mechanic in 2006.

Most all gauges have been replaced or restored. Brakes, tires, and interior all in great shape. No tears in the seats. Interior fully spray lined. For a 72 year old vehicle this thing is in Amazing condition! I’m very meticulous with my stuff to say the least. 4WD works Great! This Willy’s was originally discovered in a barn in Wyoming. Odometer says 5,391 but only 3000 miles on rebuilt engine. Runs great-starts up with one click- a Real Head Turner for sure! No low ball offers”

“Hazzard Fabworx of Spokane has reworked the suspension, power steering, changed out all the fluids, battery, serviced the diffs/transmission/transfer case/overdrive, swapped in disc brakes all around (‘94 Geo Tracker) and installed lap seat belts. It has an “odd fire” V6 motor, Dana 30 front/Dana 44 rear both with 4.27 gears, T90 3-speed transmission, Dana 18 transfer case and a Warn overdrive.

I will say the original overdrive was a Warn but the owner before me had it rebuilt by Herm The Overdrive Guy in Washington, so it’s physically a Husky case now. It also has a Warn 4500 lb winch mounted on the front. The odometer reads 30k and change. The thing still runs and drives great. It doesn’t burn oil and still has the original VIN plate. The story I got when I bought it was that it was a forestry service jeep in Oregon, hence the decals.”

1945 Wood Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models

This wooden jeep popped up on eBay last week. After reading the description “To my Wife — Love Joe 5/20/1945 “. I decided to purchase it (Joe-in-Mesa, you didn’t make this for Jan, did you?). I supposed it’s possible that the message isn’t real and it’s less that 75 years old, but I prefer to think it was assembled for someone’s loving wife.

The jeep has been assembled from a few different pieces, but doesn’t look like any kit jeep that I’ve seen or own. The steering wheel is loose, but not broken. The nail needs to be pressed back down. The jeep is 5″ long by 2 1/2” wide.

1943 Article Buy A Jeep Campaign

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles

This photo and article appeared in the April 16, 1943, issue of the Los Angeles Times. Kids at the State Street School sold enough war bonds ($12,773)  to purchase 14 jeeps, so the Army sent 5 jeeps to the school’s field.

Natalie Mastavoi is pictured climbing into the jeep. She was the first pupil that got to sit in it. Help her into it is Sgt. Louis Gade. Principlal Frank Wells and Mrs. T.D. Harrington of the local P.T.A. are standing to the right of the jeep. I tried to find out more about the young girl and the Sargent, but had no luck.
