To me, it looks like the Newgren terracing blade became the ‘Jeep’ terracing blade (with a minor modification .. angled piece added to the top for strength), which then became the Stockland terracing blade. Thoughts?

The Huffman Hub Company of Albuquerque, NM

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: , .

UPDATE II: Finally got a look at the 1967 article about Floyd Huffman that appeared in the August 20, 1967, issue of the Albuquerque Journal (pg 28):



UPDATE: Dan shared pics of a set he just bought from Paul:


Post originally Published April 8, 2017:


In December of 1958, Floyd G. Huffman filed a patent for a new type of hub structure. His patent, designed to “provide a hub structure that can be simply and quickly manually operated to release the front wheels so that they will rotate freely on the axles without the necessity of having the gears etc. rotate simultaneously when the front wheel drive has been disengaged” was finally approved in April of 1961.

1970’s Photo CJ-3A in Uruguay Pulling Trailer Ad

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

Hugo shared a French documentary about Uruguay that includes a CJ-3A. Below is a still from the video (full video here). The jeep only makes a couple second appearance.

“At the 3:20 mark, this video shows our central and most important avenue. The date of the video is 18 de Julio (18th July), the day our first constitution was approved. The location along the avenue is still possible to recognize by the architecture. Obviouslly everything else changed.

The Willys is pulling an advertisement for the Lottery of the 6th January day of the Three Kings. It is an important hollyday in Uruguay. Today it is comparable to Christmas, regarding the weight of gifts for children.”


On a side note, while doing some brief research for this, I learned that Uruguay has the longest carnival season in the world, as it runs 40 days each year!

This ad for Marine versions of the L-134 engine appeared in the October 06, 1947, issue of The Key West Citizen newspaper. As the ad notes, these are the “J1” models, which I take to mean that the serial numbers might start with “J1”?

1949 CJ-3A Idaho Falls, ID **SOLD**

Seems worth a look. Has drivetrain updates.

“1949 Willys Jeep CJ3A. Has the “Dauntless” V6. Turbo 400 automatic transmission. Dana 18 transfer case. Saginaw steering. Front disc brakes. Lots of new parts. $3,000 with new tires and older rims. $2,500 with older original style wheels and tires. Runs well and drives but definitely needs more restoration but that’s part of the fun with these old Willys jeeps. Make offer or if you have something of equal value maybe we can trade.

This Jeep was never titled but the price reflects that. I did a title search in Oregon where it was purchased and came up with nothing. There are ways to license and register it and it really isn’t a big deal but just know there is that issue. Added: The Transmission shifts rough and leaks and may need a rebuild.. Probably needs a new radiator. I took the gas tank off and did a coating on the inside which came out very nice. Put in a new gas tank gauge sending unit. New distributor cap and points. New coolant hoses. Runs well but I have a carburator rebuild kit for it. Changed the oil. Changed the tranny fluid. Did a flush of the coolant system.”
