“Listing for a friend not on FB. Message me your number and he will contact you ASAP.

1948 Willys CJ2a “Lefty”. They only produced these for a short period in 1948. No one seems to be clear why they machined this version of the 2a with the spare tire on the left. Some say it was Jeep’s way of complying with a law certain states had at the time. Others say it is for agricultural use for state municipalities. This is a rare option that will make you stand apart from the crowd. The small production numbers makes it even more rare. The Jeep isn’t running because of low compression. It has a new fuel, fuel pump, rebuilt carburetor. Brakes will need to be fixed with new master cylinder. Tub has usual floor pan rust”

1950 Jeepster and Wagon Ad Mats by Congress Electrotype

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I bought these two items off of eBay. If I understand correctly, these are mats, produced by the Congress Electrotype Company, were formed from an original engraving. They were then placed wrapped onto a cylinder with other mats to form a newspaper (or magazine?) page. A metal mold is then created from that, which is used to print the pages.

congress-electrotype-co-ad

congress-electrotype-company

I had erroneously assumed when purchasing them that they would be thick, heavy metal plates (before I understood how the process worked), but they are actually extremely light and pliable. I assume these were extras, never used? They may be a paper mâché of some type (they are that light), which was one of the processes historically used, or something similar,

I’ve taken pics from above and at an angle to show the depth. I have to say that I’m not really sure these were worth buying, but I doubt many survived (these are the first I’ve ever seen anywhere).

This Jeepster ad is 8″ x 8″:
jeepster-ad-congress-electrotype-company1 jeepster-ad-congress-electrotype-company2

This wagon ad is 10″ tall by 6″ wide:
wagon-ad-congress-electrotype-company1 wagon-ad-congress-electrotype-company2

I was able to locate an example of this ad, but it’s a poor example (If you have a newspapers.com subscription, you’ll be able to see it more clearly):

1944 Photo & Caption of Model Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models, Old News Articles

The June 24, 1944, issue of the Detroit Tribune shared the below caption and photo. I do with the picture is better. I was unable to discover any more about George Carr or the Jeep. Because the text is hard to read, I’ve transcribed it below.

1944-06-24-detroit-trib-jeep-model-george-carr-one-twentieth

YES, YOU’RE WRONG AGAIN!–But you’re correct when you say it’s a Jeep. The model of the famous 1/4 ton Army vehicle Brough two first prizes to Private George Carr, of Des Moines, Iowa, Negro member of a Quartermaster Trucking Company of the 13th Army Air Force at an “Ingenuity Contest” sponsored by the American Red Cross in New Caledonia, South Pacific. About one-twentieth the size of a real Jeep, this model has a hood that raises and latches, real springs, transmission, and rear differential, a windshield which may be raised and lowered, and a steering gear that actually moves the front wheels. (U.S. Army Signal Corps Photo.)
