1965 Article on Jeeping in Colorado

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles

A CJ-V35/U landed on the front page of the Leisuretime Magazine, published by the Gazette Telegraph out of Colorado Springs, Colorado, on August 07, 1965. It looks like the  jeep has been modified with a taller radiator (and perhaps another engine), which apparently led to the lack of a hood.

For the story, the writer spent some time with the Mountain Airs Citizen Band Radio Club (not the catchiest of names). I didn’t realize that CB clubs were a ‘thing’, but there was even a magazine dedicated to that group of folks called S9. Here’s an example from 1966 (one in which the Mountain Airs’ name appears somewhere): https://worldradiohistory.com/Archive-CB-Radio/S9-Magazine/S9-1966-05.pdf.

Below is the Gazette Telegraph article:

Stainless Body Ashton, ID $5500

https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/cto/d/ashton-stainless-steel-willys-jeep-boby/7165399704.html

stainless-body-aston-id1 stainless-body-aston-id2

“This is a somewhat slightly stretched imitation of a CJ3-A body in stainless steel. I say CJ3A because it is flat fender and low flat hood with a one piece windshield, but no vent. I looks to me like it would fit best on a CJ-7 frame.

There is NO title of any kind, there is no VIN, never has been.

There is a tub with half doors, fenders, hood, windshield frame, door handles, a “for looks only” roll bar, rear bumper things, all stainless steel, and black vinyl top with hardware. The grill in the picture is a normal CJ2-A grill and in very good shape, but not stainless steel. There is a stainless steel grill but it is an insult to jeep and whoever made the rest of the body components.

I talked with a man that told me a Texas company imported, from the Philippines, nine of these bodies sometime around 2010 and used three of them , for what he had no idea. He bought the remaining six. He resold them, He thinks that this is one of the six he resold.

The dimensions in the drawing are as close as I can get.

Ask any questions.

I am not moving very far from the listed price.”
