“One day in 2013, I was talking with a buddy and he asked if I was interested in a Willys Jeep and since I was thinking about a “project” car, I said yes. Well, I got this little gem on a farm in the Hood River Valley! I call it Taz Willy and he has won several trophies at car shows! But, as happens with time, I have purchased a travel trailer and will be doing more traveling so I decided to give someone else the opportunity to have fun with Taz.

Even though he was used in the orchard as a spraying machine, and stored for quite a while, he was in good shape and all the dried mud on his underside protected him from rusting! I stripped him down to his frame and painted it with frame paint to continue his protection.

The engine has been rebuilt by Portland Engine Rebuild using the original f-head engine block. It is the 4 cylinder stock engine. Engine has 925 miles – all road miles.

The transmission is the original– 3-speed with compound low. This required only replacement of fluid. I works good.

“Veteran” Jeep Story at LimaOhio.com

• CATEGORIES: Features

An article was published late last week about a WWII veteran who restored a jeep. It’s a touching tribute by the daughter of the veteran about her father’s restoration of a WWII jeep. The one glaring issue is that the jeep isn’t a WWII jeep; it’s a CJ-2A.

1946 CJ-2A Waldo, WI $10,995

Appears in good shape. It’s missing the front frame horns (possibly 3A frame). The key isn’t in the standard place, so it’s possible the body isn’t original.

1946 CJ-2A Bruce, MI $4999

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A

This has a reproduction body, so it’s probably in pretty good shape. Doesn’t run at the moment.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2421787464556686/

“This is a perfect candidate to ride around in parades, back woods, or to cruise to your local car shows with. There’s some minor work that needs to be done (mainly the windshield, engine only cranks), but seeing that this vehicle is nearly 75 years old, this can all be fixed by a mechanic or body shop.

We hate to let it go, but we need the space …. Make an offer that’s hard to turn down.”

Two Nearly Identical Jeep Family Brochures

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

These two nearly identical jeep brochures were published in different colors a year apart. The red version was published in late 1959. The blue (or green-blue?) brochure was published in late 1960.

Differences: 

Page 1: The truck at the mid-far-left of the page on the 1960 version has the ‘hockey stick’ styling, where the 1959 version has the older styling. Curiously, the wagons are identical.

Page 2: The ‘hockey’ stick 4WD utility wagon moves from the right to the left hand side on the 1960 brochure, while the older-design 2WD wagon is dropped in favor of the Harlequin-design wagon. The plain version of the truck is swapped for the ‘hockey’ stick truck. There are a variety of small text edits as well.

Page 3: Some very minor edits. The red version of the brochure is marked Form NO. 59-19, while the blue version is marked Form No. 600-19. Both brochures were part of a 20 series set of brochures both years. Once I get both sets of brochures complete, I will do a post for each year of brochures.
