Meyer Snow Plow & ElectroLift Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

The Meyer Snow Plow brochure includes a large section about the ElectroLift. Labeled form no. 3-163, the brochure is a standard paper side with a half-paper-sized section that folds out horizontally to reveal more details about the Electrolift. There is not date on this brochure, but I’d guess early 1960s.

2 Meyer Snow Plow Brochures

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

These two two-page brochures from Meyer once again highlight the company’s snow plows.

This first brochure showcases the Meyer Angle Dozer and is dated July of 1962 and is form no. 3-114 (though on the backside it shows 3-114 R2, suggesting the backside may have been a 1st or 2nd revision):

meyer-sp-form-3-114-1-lores meyer-sp-form-3-114-2-lores

This second one is an undated form no. 3-283, but given it includes a Jeepster Commando, it is likely from the late 1960s.:

March 1941 Photos of the Ford GP Tests

UPDATE: The Herald-News of Passaic, NJ, published an image of a Ford GP going through its paces. Given the chained tires and other similarities, it appears this photo was likely taken at the same time as one published at the bottom of this post.

This ebay ad for Free-Lock hubs provides the most detailed pics I have for this version of the hub. These are 27 spline, which means they were produced after 1972? If that’s the case, then for some reason the Free-Lock brand that was abandoned circa 1959 was resurected for these hubs.

“Up for auction is this 1961 Willys CJ3B Jeep.

This Jeep came from an elderly gentleman up in Montana and it was a hunting Jeep that was used by him on his ranch in Montana. This jeep was used for hunting Deer and coyotes on a regular basis.

Jeep Was sitting when we found it and it was stored inside of a tractor shed. We loaded this jeep up in the middle of a blizzard after driving 2 hours down a gravel road and then made the long trek home with her. We flushed out the fuel system, added new fuel lines, Coolant, and a fresh battery. We also did some adjustments to the timing and the points as well as the electrical under the dash to get it working. The jeep starts really great and the throttle and choke work as intended.
