April 1954 Kaiser Willys News

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

A big thanks to Barney Goodwin (of Barneys Jeep Parts) for sending me this early edition of the Kaiser Willys News. This is issue #3. A couple interesting things about this issue. Perhaps the biggest curiosity is that there isn’t much related to jeeps in this issue, confirming that even by early 1954 there was still a lot of integration still going on. Issue #2, seen in the post below, also didn’t have much information related to jeeps. Volume 4 of the newspaper, which appeared in May (and can be seen below the #2 issue), had a few more jeep specific references.

May 1954 Kaiser Willys Salesman Brochure **SOLD**

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

This May 1954 issue of Kaiser Willys News is one I only have available in these smaller pics snagged off eBay back in 2013. There is a story about the Yakima ridge runners and the Jeep Rodeo, but it’s too small to read.

1946 CJ-2A Harrisonburg, VA $2500


The engine is from Kaiser-Frazer, so isn’t original to the jeep. I believe the disassembled photos are the latest ones.

“”46″ Jeep CJ2A , 1st year available to for civilian purchase. All original parts to re- assemble. Was going to do a frame off restoration but am going a different way. Comes with a top, doors, and plow. Has the original supersonic 4 cylinder motor. Currently sitting in my garage out of the weather. Would be a good restoration or an opportunity to add an SMC motor to make an off road vehicle. Do not have a title so I would supply a bill of sale to acquire one.”

Sears Hardtop Sykesville, MD $525


Seller believes this was a CJ-5 hardtop at one point, but I don’t see any mods that would indicate that.

“I have a Willy’s jeep hardtop for sale. The top bolts to any flat fender jeep with a MB/GPW windshield frame. (Excluding CJ 3B) The top started off as a early aluminum CJ5 top. it has been highly modified to fit the early Jeeps.”

Scheneker Iron Works of Buffalo, New York

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

The Scheneker Iron Works company of Buffalo, New York, produced some interesting pieces of specialized equipment for the jeep. The first items appear in the Willys-Overland Special Equipment Book starting in the late 1940s and the last evidence of their association with the jeep was in 1957. Other than that, I could uncover very little about this company. So, if anyone has any more background information on Schenker, please let me know!

One early item produced by Schenker in the late 1940s was the “Jeep” Dozerette, a scraper.

Another odd item that I don’t remember ever seeing in the wild is this Scheneker all-purpose lift:


Another unique item that I’ve only seen in the demonstration photo below is the Scheneker, purchased off eBay by a friend of mine:
