1949 CJ-3A? Las Vegas, NV $8500

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Still Available.

(02/08/2020) I would guess the body is a replacement body. The front roll cage loop rests atop the step. I hope there’s something connected to the frame underneath the step. The soft top looks custom and doesn’t use the windshield channel. It kind of looks like it snaps on the front? No description provided.

Frédéric’s Mobile Cinema Model

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models

frederic-mobile-cinema-model3

Frédéric lives in France and recently completed a model, shown above, based on the mobile cinema operation shown in the photo below (see more mobile cinema photos here). We tried to find more pics of the mobile cinema setup, but we didn’t have much luck, so he had to use his imagination and experience for additional details. It took a year to complete and he did a great job!

His next project will be a German Car, a Stoewer from 691e Panzer Propaganda Kompanie that will include a couple german war reporters. 

In the meantime, as a health care professional, Frédéric is on the medical front lines in France fighting COVID-19. His region doesn’t have too many cases at the moment, so he’s in a relatively better place than other medical professionals in France. Stay safe Frédéric!

Tagging A Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features

Chattanooga Times reporter Marion Coleman wrote a piece on jeep tagging in July of 1943, which was then syndicated to at least one newspaper, appearing in the Key West Citizen on July 20, 1943, under the title “Tagging a Jeep”. The problem is that the scan is horrible. Moreover, I can’t find any other copy of the article nor are the Chattanooga News-Free Press archives online, which is where I suspect it was also published.

The reason I found the article interesting is that she underscores the primary purpose of naming (or tagging) a jeep wasn’t for sentimental/inspirational reasons. Instead, it was so drivers could identify their individual jeeps. Given drivers were responsible for their jeeps, creatively marking their jeeps was one way of safe-guarding them. Of course, snagging the distributor when parked was another way to help keep it from being stolen.

I suspect the only way to get a good copy of the article is to visit the local library in either state, which likely won’t be happening anytime soon!

Terrible online scan from the July 20, 1943, issue of the Key West Citizen.
