January 1956 DJ-3A Jeep Dispatcher Introduction

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Features, Old Images, Old News Articles

The article suggests that the Jeep Dispatcher only came in three models, with one listed as a “basic model with or without a top”. The marketing department must have decided that the single model with or without a top was better off as two models distinct models.

1960 Toledo Made Jeep Vehicles Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Given this brochure includes a Surrey, it was likely printed between 1960-1962. This four-page brochure was auctioned on eBay back in 2015. It lacks a form number; it may have been produced by Kaiser Industries rather than Willys Motors.

Article Highlights Success of Mahindra Roxors

• CATEGORIES: Features

UPDATE: In case you missed it, FCA has won the first round of the FCA vs. Mahindra legal case over the jeep-looking Roxor. The court ruled that Mahindra violated FCAs “Trade Dress”, which isn’t a specific trademark or patent, because the Roxor looks so much like a jeep. Mahindra is currently deciding whether to appeal.

https://www.automobilemag.com/news/jeep-mahindra-roxor-infringement-case-update/

This was the second win against Mahindra. The first win came in January when the International Trade Commission agreed with Jeep’s charge that the company was not contractually barred from suing Mahindra for a Trade Dress violation. This freed Jeep up to pursue the recently won lawsuit.

https://www.autonews.com/blogs/jeep-scores-legal-spat-mahindra-roxor-rolls-detroit

=======================

Originally posted September 29, 2019: This article from the Detroit Free Press highlights the successful introduction of Roxors, to the point that the company can’t keep up with demand. Unfortunately for Jeep, there’s some real branding problems, as I’ve seen countless people on Craigslist advertising these as “jeeps”. Moreover, do a Google search for “Jeep ATV” and Roxors pop up on the results page.

“Here’s your chance to own a rare 1960 Jeep FC170.
I bought the FC170 ten years ago and have come to the realization that I don’t have time to get into a restoration project.
Before I bought it, I dropped in a battery and aux gas tank and it started and I drove it around a field. I was told it ran fine prior to being parked. I am assuming, as it is like a tractor, all the other mechanical parts and pieces work fine, but it is not road worthy as it sits.
This FC170 is a restoration project vehicle.
Everything is original.
Flatbed trailer necessary for shipping.”
