“1946 Military Willys CJ2A has a lot invested into it. I have really enjoyed it but it’s time to part ways. It needs some work. Pm for more details it won’t let me type anymore. Needs timing and has exposed wires. I didn’t do the build but you can tell by looking what it’s got! It’s an all custom build and one of a kind. It’s not a Willy’s title as that was lost a long time ago. So what it has is a Clean Suzuki samurai title from the frame, engine, and transmission. It’s powered by a rebuilt fuel injected samurai motor and transmission which is a 1.6L 4 speed manual transmission with 4hi and 4L. It has brand new spark plugs, plug wires, distributor motor, Distributor cap, and rotor. 5.13 gears with a rear E-locker that is geared to be on all of the time, Toyota Land Cruiser FJ60 front and rear axles, FJ60 leaf springs, and FJ60 front manual center locking hubs. Make offer. No low ballers please.”

December 1960 Jeep News

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures • TAGS: .

Instead of the usual eight pages, the 1960 issue of Jeep News is limited to four pages. Still, there’s some interesting information inside.

First, the front page article on the movie to-be-release movie “Pepe” described the forty-jeep-gala ballet filmed in Las Brisas as spectacular. I tried to find some clips from Pepe online, but have yet to see any. The CJ-3B page does a good job describing the Gala’s role, along with a few pics, in Pepe: https://cj3b.info/Siblings/SurreyPepe.html.

Second, on page three the article about the Hy-Rail FCs contains a noticeable goof. The title refers to the FCs as “FC-170″s, while the pics and text correctly show them as FC-150s.

Third, there’s a good photo of an FC-170 flatbed with a Mobile Drill mounted on it, the first example of an FC with a mobile drill that I’ve seen and the latest reference to the sale of a Mobile Drill.

Fourth, the article on the Fresno Four Wheel Drive Club underscores why so many jeeps continue to emerge from the Fresno/Clovis area. As of December 1960, the family-friendly jeep club had more than 350 members, likely making it the largest jeep club in the US. The club even had a newsletter, which at that time was edited by Mr. Otto Traeber and called “Four Wheeler”; sound familiar? This newsletter was also shared with other jeep clubs. One year and two months later, in February of 1962, a new vehicle magazine was introduced to the public, published out of Southern California: Four Wheeler Magazine.

The FC-150 Mobile Cocktail Bar

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677, Features • TAGS: .

the-fcbar1

Craig shared the news that the FC-150 Mobile Cocktail Bar has been finished! You can view all the information and details on the build here: http://www.thefcconnection.com/fc-150_mobile_cocktail_bar.htmBelow are some highlights

This project began with a rusty FC-150 cab that was found in a field. It was paired with an equally rusty FC-150 bed. Coincidently, their colors matched pretty well. The owner decided it was not worth the money and time to repair the body and cab, so he went a different direction, creating a cocktail bar. Moreover, this contraption can travel as independent single units or be joined together and transported as a four-wheel rig thanks to some clever engineering!

The captions are from theFCConnection.

the-fcbar-beginning-1

Believe it or not this cab and bed came from two different vehicles. Most all of the body suffered from severe rust and would take quite a bit to repair. (The bed was found laying in a field)

the-fcbar-beginning-2

The idea here was to build a full scale bar that can be easily moved around inside a building and even moved outside for parties. The only real modification to the sheetmetal was the removal of the bed floor which was toast already.

Independent jigs were built under each body part so they can be separated for easy movement. The bartender can serve from inside of the bed with the floor removed and the custom tool box on the right side will make the perfect serving counter. The original look was preserved and all lights function to give it a completely opperational look.

the-fcbar-5

A receiver was also added to the front of the cab so it or the complete truck could be towed.

the-fcbar-6

Here we are with the tow hitch installed for easy transportation. The receiver tubes on the bed can be used as shown above OR the Tongue can be removed and the receivers used to join the bed to the cab..

Early Documented Post War Jeep Races

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

Doing some random searches, I learned that during the summer of 1946 several jeep races popped up across the country. One of them was very organized (#2), one was more of a performance (#1), one was impromptu (#4), and one provided no additional information (#3)

  1. On the night of June 1, 1946, in Ogden, Utah, jeep races and jeep-jumps-jeep events were planned by the local American Legion, along with other event. The jeep events were part of Lt. Dick Ryan’s traveling jeep rodeo, so I’d argue they were more of a performance than an organic race. (Ogden Standard-Examiner, June 1, 1946).
  2. A mid August 1946 five-mile jeep race for veterans was organized for the Plumas County Fair in California. Only standard jeeps and qualified WWII veterans could participate. Four jeeps were entered, with Clayt Joslin of Quincy  winning the event (As reported in the Feather River Bulletin August 22, 1946). First prize was $100, while second price was $50 (Indian Valley Record, Greenville, California, August 1, 1946).
  3. Around September 14, an impromptu jeep race was held at the West Tennessee District Fair. It was organized by folks were were driving jeeps that were servicing the race track for the fair (The Jackson Sun September 15, 1946).
  4. In October, jeep race(s) were held on October 04, 1946, at the Montana Youth Fair, in Kalispell, Montana. I could find no results or more information. (The Daily Inter Lake October 01, 1946, Kalispell, Montana)

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

In unrelated news from 1953, this Yakima Ridgerunners photo hit some newspapers across the country. The example below was published in the June 24, 1953, issue of the Spokesman-Review, out of Spokane, Washington. Chet Thompson and Wally Klingele, both names synonymous with the early days of the Ridgerunners, are shown practice-racing for a July 4th event.

Blaine shared this Bring-A-Trailer auction for a nice looking FC-170. I love the old school washer bag hanging from the dash. I have an OEM foot actuated bag in Patterson, but don’t have pics at the moment; instead, here are pics of the Allstate washer bag that came with Patterson.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1963-jeep-fc-170/

“This 1963 Jeep FC-170 is finished in two-tone red and white over beige vinyl and is powered by a 226ci Super Hurricane inline-six paired with a three-speed manual transmission and a two-speed transfer case. The truck is equipped with a bed-mounted spare, a hydraulic plow frame, and a rear-mounted winch. The selling dealer acquired the truck in 2017, and service during their ownership included an oil change and replacement of the brake lines as well as the rear brake drums and hardware. This Kaiser-built Jeep Forward Control is now offered in Indiana with a clean Pennsylvania title.”
