Jeep to Harney Peak in the Black Hills of South Dakota

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Postcards • TAGS: .

UPDATE: This is a brochure from 1959.

From the 1950s until 1968 visitors to the Black Hills of South Dakota could purchase tickets for a ride in a jeep to Harney Peak.  The ride would take visitors up to the CCC built lookout at the top of the peak, the tallest point in the United States east of the Rockies (visitors could also hike or ascend via horseback).  You can view various pictures of and from the lookout here. Erosion due to the jeep trail ended the trips by jeep.  The area around the peak was also turned into a wilderness area (and one could argue given the road how that might happen, but that’s another a debate for another time), so no vehicles are allowed anymore.

Black Hills National Forest: Harney Peak and the Historic Fire … – Page 51

This picture was taken at Sylvan Lake. They employed both flatties and CJ-5s. Custer State Park – Page 104

Gerald sent these digital versions of this postcard to me a couple years ago.  You can also buy it here.

Jeep Dozer Article by E.V. Reyner

• CATEGORIES: Magazine • TAGS: .

Here’s an interesting article published in the May 1953 issue of Popular Mechanics.  I don’t remember running  across one of these.  Interesting that they chose to use a VEC CJ-2A rather than a later model jeep.  This issue also includes an introduction and comparison between the M-38A1 and the Mighty Mite.

Tonka Jeeps and Boats


I spotted the 2nd combo first, but then saw the really cool “Outdoor Package”! Nice.

1. “This is a very nice 1963 Tonka Outdoor Living Set in its original box. The set consists of a Jeep Surrey, Pick-up Truck with removable camper, Jeep Runabout, and Boat with Trailer. The set has 3 pieces of luggage that go in the jeep, and the motor that attaches onto the back of the boat. As you can see in the photos, the toys are in nice shape. The original box is tattered and dirty. You rarely see the original box.”

2. “Vintage Tonka Jeep and Boat with Luggage and Spare Tire! Fun combination of Jeep, trailer and boat in good “played with” condition! Boat is missing the antenna, outboard motor and top. Jeep is missing the steering wheel, (easily replaced). Only minor scratches as visible in photos.”

Anyone know anything about these?

“These signs are hand made. Each sign is made one at a time on recycled or scrap metal so that, no two signs are exactly the same.

The metal may be scratched, dented, bent or intentionally distressed to make the sign look old. They are made on 24 gauge steel and then the enamel paint is baked, and clear coated. 17 X10.”

1948 & 2 1946 CJ-2As for Sale King, NC Make Offer


Doyle unearthed this trio of CJ-2As for sale.  The seller will consider an offer. Only the two CJ-2As are shown below (I think).  The pictures suggests the two jeeps shown below are post ’46 based on the parking lights.

“1948 Willys Jeep CJ2A….$2500
(2) 1946 Willys Jeeps CJ2A…..$1500/each

According to the seller, he has “title for 1948, Bill of Sale for the (2) 1946′s. The 48 will run, it has not in two years and then for a short period of time on lawn mower can of gas. The 46′s were bought for parts. I have no idea their capability of running. Both are intact only missing a part here and there. I would represent all of the Willys as needing a full restoration, that way an individual can expect the worse and hope for the best. Also, if you are interested after viewing the photos; make me an offer to consider.”

1947 CJ-2A Claremore, OK eBay


This looks nice, but needs a little more work.

“This is a 1947 CJ2A.  I restored this jeep 2 years ago.  I have not tagged it or driven it.  It has been sitting in covered storage since I finished it.  I took it down to the frame, sandblasted the frame, coated it with POR-15.  All new seals were placed in the axles, and all new gaskets.  New gas tank.  The body was bead blasted and bodywork was done using metal where needed with thin film bondo used in places that were necessary for smoothing.  I have pictures as well of the restoration process that details what I did.  The engine was rebuilt, new bearings, rings, and seals.  I had the transmission professional rebuilt.  I had change out the rear diff with the same unit from another jeep of the same year, only because at the time I wanted the experience.  At this time, I have driven a couple of times around the block, and there is whine on coasting coming from the rear end that perhaps needs to be re-shimmed.

Shouldn’t be too much of a job really.  Original style wiring harness used.  I really tried to make it as original as possible, save for the 12 volt system and adding another taillight in case someone would like to add turn signals later.  The front end needs to be aligned, simple procedure, but I just never got around to it.  Brakes work well, all new.  It really is a nice jeep, I did all the hard work, now someone could refine it.  I am selling it for much lower than what I have in it.  Just need to get rid of some toys. I have a title to this Jeep, its a Texas title.  Also, please call 918-361-9101 for any questions.  Again, please note that I stated that I feel this Jeep needs to be FINISHED OUT.  Basically needs the bugs worked out and such, and add anything that you would like.  It does not have turn signals, and I have only driven it around some after restoring it.  I feel that I am selling it at a very fair price considering what you will be getting.  To restore a jeep like this would cost a lot more than what my starting bid is.  I am not out to make any money, just sell the Jeep to a good home and give someone that appreciates these as a hobby to refine what I have nearly finished.”

I just like the name of the town. According to Wikipedia, the town was “named for a settlement of mechanics who made and repaired Conestoga wagons in the early 19th century, Mechanicsburg’s continued growth was also attributed to the Cumberland Valley Railroad (CVRR).”

1946 CJ-2A San Gabriel, Ca $6300


UPDATE:  Still Available

(03/24/2010) This Jeep has an interesting history.  It sounds little used.

“1946 Willys CJ2A. California jeep. Second owner. Originally sold to a Los Angeles family for use on their weekend getaway ranch in Agoura, CA. For twenty years, this jeep ran from their house up the hill to their water well. It was last used in 1963. Sometime thereafter, the transmission and transfer case were stolen, and it sat until I purchased it in 1983. At that time, it had a little over 500 original miles. Stored outside, but thanks to the dry California climate, at the time I bought it, there was no body rot. Since then, the frame-up restoration has included: Sand blast frame and body parts, engine professionally rebuilt by Preco, Inc. through Harvey’s Complete Jeep Shop in Paramount. Radiator dipped and rodded out. Clutch re-lined by Friction Materials Company. Installed NEW transmission and transfer case, added a Warn All-Range Overdrive. New u-joints, AVM hubs, new seals in differential and axles. New master cylinder, new brake lines, brake shoes re-lined by Friction Materials. Original seats recovered by Elmer’s Truck Seats of Los Angeles, new steering wheel, new instrumentation, and new wiring throughout. Fuel tank cleaned and lined. New 24V alternator. New tires, rims, and front bumper tow bar. New windshield glass. Bikini top, and CJ-5 roll bar. Over 10K invested. I have all receipts. The jeep has not been run in the last 8 years, and needs some TLC, namely a new battery and a clutch return spring. Minor rust is starting to form in the lower corners of the windshield, and the “steps” behind the front fenders. I also have three of the original rims fitted with tractor tires, and the original side spare tire mount. Please contact me via email to arrange an inspection. $7300.00. I will consider any reasonable offer.”
