“This Jeep has been in my family since the early 70’s. It was my grandfather’s and was used as a hunting rig for many years in Oregon. After he passed it sat at my dads place for a long time always with the intention of getting it running again. Well next thing you know 25years passed and the rust takes over. This would be a fun project Jeep, or a good Parts jeep or if you just want to use the tub to have a titled buggy. Clean Oregon title in hand. I can deliver within 50 miles of Lincoln.”

1944/45(?) Berg’s ‘King of Jeeps’ Brochure

This Berg’s brochure is interesting in that it contains no references to the CJ-2A or a civilian jeep, suggesting that it came out between 1944-1945 (to me it looks a little earlier than this Berg mailer). Within the flier, Berg claims Berg Truck & Parts Co. was begun in December of 1942 to sell JEEPS. He also notes that the company had appeared in news reels, magazines, and Life Magazine.

Here’s the front page of the brochure:

1945ish-bergs-king-of-jeeps-brochure-1-lores

This is the back page. 1945ish-bergs-king-of-jeeps-brochure-2-lores

When opened, you’ll find this third small page. Since Berg is offering standard jeep parts for sale, it can be assumed that this flier is at least from 1944. Note the trailer chassis ad, too.1945ish-bergs-king-of-jeeps-brochure-3-lores

When flipped over, the brochure offers an array of Ford, Willys, and Bantam jeep parts.

1945ish-bergs-king-of-jeeps-brochure-4-lores

When fully opened, there are even more military-related parts, but no word of civilian parts:

1945ish-bergs-king-of-jeeps-brochure-5-lores

This is how the back looks when fully opened.

1945ish-bergs-king-of-jeeps-brochure-6-lores

Interestingly, while Berg’s Truck Parts may have opened in 1942, Berg didn’t receive any jeeps until November of 1943 and it was only 16 jeeps (likely aall were prototypes). Here’s a report of those first jeeps from the November 27,1943, issue of the Chicago Tribune:

1943-11-27-chicago-tribune-bergs-first-jeeps

A month later, in December of 1943, this press photo showed the ‘King of Jeeps’ himself Hyman Berg loading up one of those jeeps, a Bantam BRC-40:

It says “go devil powered” pretty Rad!! Also on the tail gate you can still make out the willys four wheel drive. I have a windshield frame gas tank and radiator for it.

1951 Brochure: Power! … Where It Counts!

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This 1950 or 1951 brochure focuses on the main 4WD vehicles offered by Willys-Overland, including the 4WD Sedan Delivery, he 4WD Truck, the 4WD Station Wagon, and the CJ-3A Universal Jeep. There is no form number on it. I’m dating this as 1951 because 1) it doesn’t mention the f-head being ‘new’ and 2) the 1950 truck and wagon brochures are more colorful and larger, whereas the 1951 brochures feel a little more subdued in their use of color.
