August/September 1958 Jeep News

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

This popped up on eBay the other day. Curiously, there are multiple mistakes in this issue.

The first appears on page four. Under “1943 Military ‘Jeep’ Vehicle Stars in Big Portland Rose Parade”, the article shares a little about the jeep and the parade. However, the jeep that’s pictured is actually an M-38. I can only suspect that the wrong photo was added to the article?

The second oddity is on the upper left corner of page five. Though the article is titled “Sixth Annual “jeepers” Jamboree ….“, the story is actually about the growing popularity of the Sweepster Rotary Broom. The only reference to the jamboree is a small paragraph that’s a continuation from “page 1”.

However, the Jeepers Jamboree story isn’t on page one, it was on page six under the title “‘Jeep’ Owner and prospects showing interest in snow removal equipment as winter season nears

Meanwhile, the page five paragraph about the jeepers jamboree wasn’t about the jamboree itself, but instead about a page 1 jeep summer jamboree sales contest.

Despite all the errors, it’s still worth a read as there are a variety of interesting articles.
