1946 Bulletin: “The Jeep as a Source of Power …”

• CATEGORIES: Documents, Features

The 1946 Bulletin “The Jeep as a Source of Power and Transportation on Farms and Ranches in Texas” was written by Harris Pearson Smith, Chief of the Division of Agricultural Engineering in the State of Texas. It is available for download off of the Hathitrust.org site. The pamphlet includes a variety of farm images.

Cover of booklet:

1951-case-histories-of-advertising-images4

Image 1 compares a WWII jeep used for testing vs. a CJ-2 (note the lack of a fuel inlet and the WWII grille; also looks like JEEP is printed on the windshield) received in April of 1945 for additional testing:

1951 Short Case History of Willys-Overland Advertising

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

The following analysis of Willys-Overland advertising was included as part of the 1951 book “Case Histories of Advertising When Oversold“. One example shows how Sunkist growers used advertising in WWII to switch users from canned fruit to fresh fruit and from occasional customers to steady customers. Not much detail in any of these, but kind of interesting (to me anyway).

“The first 3 pics are the jeep as it sets now. The next one is as it was 4 years ago. The rest are during a restoration in 2015 that never got finished and of the hard top that has never been on it since my dad built it the first time 15 years ago. The motor was rebuilt in 2015 but rear main still leaked and the centermost head bolt wouldn’t tighten (Dad tried). The hard top windows are made out of polarized tinting plexiglass or something, they’re nice. All the seats etc. are still with it. Everything’s a little rougher since 2015. Clean title and tagged. Had a lot of fun driving this to bike rallies in 2006-2009 era.

The price is for the ’46 Willys, the hard top, the original motor, and a 4.3 Chevy V6 Dad had thought about putting in it. Not parting out top (very rare) or anything else separately at this time. Come prepared to do your own loading 🙂 Text me… I don’t answer unknown numbers. Thanks, Four Oh Five 408 four six five five”
