Circa mid-1940s Photos of Jeep Dealership on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Old Images

Given the lack of other models and the early signage, these early jeep dealership photos were likely taken between 1945 and 1947. At first I thought the dealer has signs in the window, but I think the “signage” is actually window paint images (note the different fonts used for ‘JEEP’ in the window images). There is a nice early “J” signage on the front of the building.

View all the information on eBay

“I believe upsate new york, love the mobil oil gargoyle sign as well.”

Solid body and frame. Runs and drives well – only known issue is that one of the brakes starts to get sticky after longer drives. It was substantially rebuilt from the ground up about 5 years ago.

Otherwise, it’s in good shape and my friend would love for it to go to a Jeep enthusiast who can give it the love and enjoyment it deserves.”
