The photo of this poor CJ-2A appeared on Facebook earlier this week. I don’t have any info on it.
And who has this MB?
“1944- Ward Canaday, President of Willys-Overland, drives the 200,000 Jeep built in Toledo off the line on April 4, 1944. Mr. Canaday helped the company get a contract to make Jeeps during WWII, producing 363,000 of the total of 648,000 wartime Jeeps.”
I don’t remember this photo in any of the Half Safe books.

(02/05/2015) Looks like there’s some value here.
“Clean and clear Arizona Title. I have both the VIN plate and shift diagram plate that go on the dashboard. Location and Contact info at bottom of post.
I am not parting this out. This sale is for the entire vehicle and it’s spare parts. Most of the parts are present. The only known missing parts for a complete vehicle are: driver and passenger seats/frames, windshield glass, and all rubber hoses, seals, seams etc. I have not done any work on this so I cannot say if the engine/transmission/axles are any good. I bought it in Phoenix. I heard it came from northern AZ.
Getting this Texas Trip going proved to be a challenge. Multiple issues kept us from leaving for weeks. However, we’ve cleared everything up and Ann’s at peace with her grandfather’s situation.
We hope to visit some must see-places, friendly faces, and amazing natural spaces. Of course, we’ll scout some odd ball things as well, such as the toilet seat art museum and dog museum.
On our way back we’ll be heading through Colorado towns including Pueblo, Cripple Creek, Monarch, St. John, Colorado Springs, Golden, and FairPlay.
Below is a rough sketch of the Texas part of our trip. Google won’t allow me to input more stops, so I could only make a rough outline.
In 1965 Brits R.M.E. Diamant, his wife, and three children completed a five month drive around the United States in a Jeep Wagoneer Camper. Mr. Diamant intended to publish stories of their adventure in travel magazines in the UK and the US, but his article in the 1966 Jeep News was the only one I found.
I’ve created this rough map of their journey based on the places mentioned in the article.
Brian forwarded links to some color WWII photos. These two photos included jeeps.
Buz spotted this lowered jeep at the Charlotte Auto Fair. The seller want’s $8500. After looking at the front end, I’m not sure I”d want to drive this too fast.
