This article about the FC-170 Fire Jeep comes from a 1964 issue of Jeep News.
Dan forwarded these two photos of a good looking San Francisco 49er-themed DJ-3A. I tried to find more info about it online, but couldn’t learn any more.
Life magazine photographer W. Eugene Smith too this photo on Mariana Island of Saipan during the summer of 1944. You can see more photos at dailymail.co.uk’s site. As you can see, both of these jeeps are MB Slatgrilles. Interesting that the spares are stored in the same place used later by the CJs.
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5500.
Blaine spotted this jeep with some nifty changes. The top is particularly interesting with its suicide doors.

I have fixed a couple oil leaks, the carb is fully rebuilt, it still needs some odds and ends but this is a great novice project,as it’s easy to work on! Come see, make and offer and drive this away!”

“1947 Willys Jeep Cj2a, ran great when it was put in indoor storage in 2007.
It Turns over just fine, and my assumption would be it would start up fine.
It has had some of the floor panels replaced, and has been painted to look like an army jeep.
The steering wheel and the seats are not original (although the seats that are in it are way more comfortable then the originals).
It has a Brand new set of original style tires on it, and comes with a home made hardtop without doors.
Comes with a spare tire and a tow bar.
The one picture I have of it is not very good, and I will try to get a better one on here the next time I make it down to where it is stored.

I imagine this is an unusual and rare poster. It’s not cheap. Here’s a short video that’s been posted on Facebook.

Cuban movie posters were made using the handmade silkscreen process. Aesthetically, the paint, applied in thick layers gave these posters a unique texture that is closer to a painting than to posters. Artistically they are among the best designed in the world and many prizes were awarded to their creators. For more information about the history of Cuban posters and his artists, visit my page at artofcuba.com.
This poster was kept flat in a temperature controlled room for the last 10 years. Some flaws like small tears in the border, cracks in the silkscreen paint, pinhole bug bites and water stains are very common in Cuban posters due to the humid/hot weather. Careless handling and poor storage of the posters also contributed to their condition. It is very difficult to find an original silkscreen from the 60’s and 70’s. And almost impossible to find it in pristine condition. In the majority of titles, only 250-500 handmade posters were ever printed and except for a selected group of collectors, most people disposed of them by dressing walls or recycling. Only a fraction of those survived until now. This is one of the very few. Includes a Certificate of Authenticity from CubanPosters. SEE SAMPLE
TITLE: Tres barbaros en un jeep (3 Cool guys in a Jeep) – Cuban film by Directed by Manuel de la Pedroza
MEDIUM: Stone Lithograph
SIZE: 27″x37″= 69×94 cm
CONDITION and GRADE: 2 (see scale bellow) COMMENTS: This is a pre-revolutionary poster from 1955. It was originally folded for distribution.There is a small hole where the folds meet and can be easily repaired. The rest of the poster is in mint condition.
This is a simple grading scale I developed for silkscreen movie posters. I’d been an avid collector for almost 20 years and I’ve seen thousands of them. I was part of the poster scene and met many of the artists. I read everything is printed about Cuban posters. With every original poster I will send you a Certificate of Authenticity legally graded and signed by me. SEE SAMPLE
1-MINT. This spot is reserved only for those lucky posters that were acquired while new by collectors that luckily like them so much, that kept them in a acid-free and temperature-humidity controlled enviroment. Even under these circumstances, yellowing of the paper is expected.
2-VERY GOOD- The poster is complete. Painting is smooth and bright. Some small tears around the border might be present as long as they are repaired to avoid further damage.
3-AVERAGE-Here lies every poster that is still beautiful enough to be framed and admired, waiting for the day when it will be so valuable and rare that sending your poster to a professional restorer will be an investment (Check Posterfix on eBay). Small bug bites, cracking in the paint, light folds, repairable tears and water stains are fine as long as the flaw does not interfere with the beauty and integrity of the image.
4-FAIR- I have many many beauties that fall in this category. It is reserved to the neglected poster. The one who spent years and years rolled in top of a closet in humid Havana or under the beds to keep them flat. Also those who were glued to the walls
5-BAD- This place is only for the poster that is beyond repair BUT is still collectible because it has more than 40 years, only 50 were made and probably this one is the only one in existence.
I included are some closeups from the actual poster for best visualization of its condition.
I hadn’t run across this poster.

Given the column shift and the single speedometer, I think this is a DJ-3A.

“1959 Jeep FC 150 4×4
***IOWA LIFE VEHICLE – not going to be a rust free southern state vehicle
*** Project Vehicle
Hurricane F4-134 Engine – 3 Speed Transmission – 4×4 works great.
12V Generator – Headlights, taillights, turns, breaks, blower for heater, and wipers, and gauges all worked well. Ignition switch went out and it controls most of these so I disconnected them and clipped some of the wiring and did not re connect. My plan was to rewire the entire unit with new wires and I never got around to it. All the wires are hanging and could be hooked back up.
Runs and drives great. Have been driving it around town – starts up perfect every time and runs strong.
Unit does have some body and cosmetic work the COULD be done, if you chose. From looking at the pictures you can see most of the bad spots. All 4 corners have some issues – need work. I stuck a magnet to them and beat around on them – magnet stuck well some bondo in them. Floors are ate up pretty good and have temporary replacement steel over them.
