1953-1955 Kaiser’s Attempt to Standardize Marketing

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE: II: Barry Thomas has updated his thoughts on this video at his Farm Jeep site:

https://www.farmjeep.com/2021/08/01/a-jeep-movie-that-was-never-released/

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

UPDATE I From July 11/2021: This video was shared by the Goddess herself, Deborah. It used the 1954 Willys Export Company’s brochure as the lens through which is shows the variety of jeeps in this movie clip (in color no less). You can learn more about the various forms of this brochure below. This brochure did not have a form number.

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

Originally posted January 12, 2020: As noted by Edgar Kaiser in 1955, one of the key reasons Kaiser bought Willys’ assets was that Kaiser didn’t feel Willys-Overland was pursuing the consumer market aggressively enough. As a part of Kaiser’s strategy to move that direction, the company created a wide variety of brochures, folders, direct mail pieces, product booklets, post cards, a Jeep family 16mm movie, and other merchandising materials.

Much of these documents have been scanned and available on the internet, but no one (that I’ve seen) has assembled them together to see what items were available at the time the CJ-5 launched.

So, consider this a draft towards that goal, as I still have some more scanning and locating of documents so I can interlink everything together.

To begin, here is one of the earliest examples of the Kaiser Willys team creating a standardized family of similar brochures that highlight each of the models. Nearly all the first wave of documents were created in 1954. How do we know this? Because the January 1955 Kaiser Willys Sales and Dealer News highlighted these merchandising aides:

1955-01-kwnews-pg8-lores

Note that other brochures mentioned in this Kaiser Willys Newspaper include the upcoming  Jeep in Public Service (24 pages), the Jeep in Industry (24 pages, might have ended up this one?), and the Jeep in Agriculture (unclear to me which this is). I do have the brochure shown in the lower right, but it’s in Spanish. So, we can conclude that those were all published in 1955 (there are no publish dates on them).

Here’s an order form from 1955. It’s form numbers for the ‘vehicle folder’ brochures match those shown in the photo below this order form.

1954-merchandising-material-order-form-lores

Here’s a photo from an ebay post that shows all the vehicle ‘folder’ brochures together (the form numbers I have for the vehicle brochures below match the numbers on the order form above). I only have 7 of the 10 brochures, or I’d take a photo of my own like this.

1950s-willys-motors-equipment-catalog3

Form #s for 9 of the brochures in the pic above, and one not included (w-221-6): CJ-5 (W-239-5), CJ-3B (W-201-5), 1 Ton Truck (W-205-5), 4WD Station Wagon (W-221-5) (see W-221-4 here), 4WD Sedan Deliver (W-227-5), 2WD Utility Wagon (M-221-6), Cargo Personnel Carrier (W-215-5), 4WD Field Ambulance (W-228-5), 4WD Utility Ambulance (W-230-5), Jeep Fire Engine (W-229-5), and the Commando Fire Truck (W-240-5).

Below are some various brochure covers from the twenty-plus page brochures ….. (Note, one promotional document not listed in the order form was the Willys Story, 1950-1954).

“Street, strip or sand, this 1952 Willys is ready to play! While the clean title, which I have in hand, says it’s a 1952 Willys, I believe only the chassis, which has been boxed, is original. Blueprinted Aluminum GM V8 406ci/7.0l block. Aluminum Dart heads. That’s hooked up to a cutch-Turbo 400 transmission with scatter shield controlled B&M Pro Ratchet automatic shifter attached to a 3/4 ton 205 transfer case. Custom built heavy duty drive shafts to professionally built 35 spline axels. Dana 60 with locker and 5.08 gears in rear and Dana 44 with 4.88 gears in front. Street tires are brand new. Sand tires and wheels are also new. Extra set of wheels included if you want to mount slicks!

The rig is up and running/stopping but should be gone through before pushing it hard. It was parked for several years in an Arizona garage. Was plated in CA. Has break lights, headlights, turn signals. It’s an estate sale. Really cool, but not my jam. Trailer with tire rack available.”

“Jeepster with running 4 cylinder 134cu.in flathead original engine and three speed with overdrive transmission. This is not a restoration. It runs (sounds good), works in all gears, (I do not know about the overdrive) has a new paint job. There is a new-inbox top and the bumpers have been re-chromed. The upholstery need to be redone with the proper padding. The rust is present but light for this type of auto. This is a great Jeepster to restore or make a car for cruising the foothill or your neighborhood. Title is in my name as non-op.
Look at the pictures and get in touch with me with your questions.
I have two other Jeepsters that will post soon.”

Year? CJ-3A Mosier, OR $2500

Seems like there’s some value here. It does look to be a CJ-3A, based on the bodies’ dash, the radiator setup, and the lack of front frame horns.

“This is either a CJ2A or a CJ3A or may be a mix. It is a project that I have stalled on…
Frame and engine are in good shape, the engine turns over, is not seized. Has new brake lines and includes a new carburetor. All Jeep parts in the photos go with it; muffler, exhaust pipe, radiator, all body parts, drive shafts, steering assembly, etc. As with most of these Jeeps, the body (tub) is fair to poor.”

MotorTrend Article on a CJ-2A M-38 …

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features

soni-m38-cj2a-motortrend

Bill shared this article that describes this custom build as a 1948 M38. However, it’s appears to be a modified CJ-2A. It’s an interesting build, but calling it one of the “greatest flat fenders ever built” is a stretch (in my opinion).

https://www.motortrend.com/features/willys-m38-flatfender-rock-spider-soni-honegger/

“Fans of the War Wagon, the Scorpion MK1, and this apocalypse-ready toy hauler might already be familiar with this Willys M38 (the military version of the civilian Jeep CJ-3A) built by Soni Honegger. It’s been called the “Slickrock Spider” for its remarkable ability to articulate its way over and through some of the hairiest obstacles known to four-wheel drive vehicles, especially with Soni at the helm. Let’s take a look at what makes this machine one of the greatest Flatfenders ever built.”
