Jeep-Herders: The Movie

• CATEGORIES: Features

UPDATE III: Brian left this comment: “Thanks to the work of Eric Steadman at the Serial Squadron, Planet Picture’s “Jeep-Herders” (1946) has been restored and can now be seen in its entirety for free on youtube. See link below:
You can also help support the preservation of serials by purchasing a DVD copy of the restored Jeep-Herders at the Serial Squadron website:

A quick look through the movie on youtube and one of the jeeps looks to be a Ford GP MT Tug (6×6). There’s also a Ford GP and what looks to be (based on the sides) the original Ford Pygmy.


Last update April 12, 2018 — UPDATE II: See some still shots from the filming that show a couple Ford GPs.

UPDATE: This post once contained information on the El Dorado Jeepherders jeep club and their association with the placer miner and his pan ornament. I have moved the that information to this link.



In 1945, Planet Pictures, a new venture founded by two stuntmen, produced it’s first movie: Jeep-Herders, a full-length movie shot in color on 16mm film. Planet PIctures’ goal was to produce movies that could bypass theaters for play in schools and churches, as 16mm projectors were very common at the time and much cheaper than the 35mm projectors. In addition, there was growing interest in 16mm for large audiences, as an industrial film on 16mm was shown to a crowd of 6000 in 1945. (click on this link and scroll down a page).

The plot of the movie was pretty pedestrian, “A wildcat oil outfit is seeking to take over the ranch belonging to Pop Martin and his son Bob and daughter Helen. Bob sends his ex-army pals a “stay-way” message, which brings them on the double. The WW II vets use their jeeps, first for a cattle roundup, and then to round up the gang of crooks, including the crooked family-lawyer Thatcher, brains of the gang.”

1941 Article: 1300 Miles in a Jeep

It sounds like this report and soldier had a very uncomfortable ride in the “roman rack”. I am a bit surprised that the jeep garnered so many laughs. Note the BRC-40 in the top pic. The article appeared in The Morning Call, out of Paterson, New Jersey, November 22, 1941.

2 1946 CJ-2As Langhorne, PA $1500


The more complete jeep has a gear shift that appears to the driver’s side of the transmission gear shift. That could be a crankshaft PTO engagement shifter. The hardtop looks similar to a Porter and Reed, but the front of the roof doesn’t slope down at the correct angle. I’m not sure what top it is.

“This is for both Willies Jeeps 1946. One title. Use for parts or get a title and use both to build one. The second one has a electric hydraulic pump that goes with”

1946 CJ-2A Golden, CO $2500


UPDATE: Still Available.

(12/07/2020) Given the grille, this is likely a 1947 or later. It’s a project that hasn’t been run since Kennedy was president.

“1946 Willys Jeep project. Very original and complete. Last plated and ran in 1963. Body and frame in really good condition overall, rust in hat channels and toolbox, floors are good, has a repair on the passenger rear where tire carrier usually messes them up, has all 5 original tires and wheels, has the original soft top frame bows and most of the hardware , have the remains of the cloth topt with door frames and metal window ports , i have never seen these before, has all data tags and vin plate, the is no original title. I do have a title from a jeep i scrapped, but it doesn’t match this Jeeps vin tag. Looks like water got in the tranny and it is stuck, engine doesn’t turn either but coud be because of the transmission . Carburetor is missing they gave me one but it doesn’t fit. Great start to a complete restoration”

(from previous ad) … “Great Fun! Has been in the family over 40 years. It runs, has full roll bar, front and back towing. 2 sets of tires and rims. It has been kept in storage. My father told me it was a 4 cylinder plymouth engine. It is a 4 wheel 3 speed. It has very low mileage. Enjoyable as it is or easily made to look like new. No cracks in the windshield. The original serial numbers are on the under carriage with the 5 pointed star at the beginning and end of the sequence. It has a clear title and has been put on non-op as I cannot drive it anymore because of numerous back surgeries. I will miss it. I learned to drive on it when I was 9 years old. I hope to find it a good home. Some seal are dry and need greasing. You can make an appt to see it. Contact me through my email.”

It’s probably seized up I haven’t touched it in years but it shouldn’t take much to get her up and running. the body was brand-new ship to me from the Philippines. It has a 4in lift and I think it’s run in 32 or 33 inch tires. I really hate to see it go but could use the money for other projects.
