1958? CJ-3B Australian Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I am guessing that based on the reference to right-hand driving, and given that jeep manufacturing was introduced in the summer of 1958 in Australia, that this brochure is likely from 1958.

Here is the front of the brochure:

This doesn’t run at the moment. It has a rear PTO gearbox plus a drum.

1951 M-38 Roller Placerville, CA $1800


There looks to be some value here.

“This is a project M38. It came with another jeep that I purchased. It has many of the necessary parts but pretty much everything needs to be done. But, it’s a cheap starting point and it’s an M38 which are getting harder to find. I think that the pictures should answer most questions. No title. Bill of Sale only.”

April 1966 Front Wheel Drive Concept Jeep Car

• CATEGORIES: Documents, Features

I spotted this concept vehicle document on eBay. It was so unusual, I thought I’d snag it. Each of the pages is within plastic, which seemed strange, too (see first pic). Anyone have more information on this? Note the use of the Corvair engine and other parts.

The shape of the car seems similar to that of a Studebaker Avanti (sold a few years earlier) or the later American Motors Corp’s concept AMX-GT, built prior to the merger between AMC and Kaiser-Jeep.


Each page of document is bound within plastic, making it much thicker than it needs to be.

Reproduction Body Governor Bump Stamped Hole

• CATEGORIES: Features

Barney noticed that this CJ-3A has a non-punched governor hole that looks slightly different from a standard stock body. This *might* be another item to look for in an aftermarket body. He noted that he isn’t 100% sure this green body isn’t stock, but it’s something to look for when reviewing a jeep.

Anyone else notice this on aftermarket bodies? Or, anyone notice that the shape of the stock stamp changes over the years, making this observation less dependable for spotting aftermarket bodies?

This photo of a red body is Barney’s jeep with a non-stock body. Now how rounded the surface of the bump is:


This is the green body from this post. It too appears rounded on the surface (and the inside looks like it has additional texture):


Note that the green body seems to be missing the “notch” along the top seam of the dash, which suggest also this isn’t a stock body .. see notch above hand brake in pic below.

This is a stock 1947 CJ-2A body. The Governor bump is flatter:

Thanks to Jan for sharing this rare sixteen-page January 1947 issue of Willys-Overland Sales News!

I’m not very familiar with these nor do I know how many issues were released, but I assume this style of magazine was discontinued once the Salesbuilder magazines were created in mid-1948.
