Cookie Monster’s FJ-3 Foodie Truck

• CATEGORIES: Features, FJ

Thanks to Gayland for spotting this Sesame Street FJ-3 fleet van that was made into Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck. You can learn more about the show and the truck on the Muppet Fandom Page: https://muppet.fandom.com/wiki/Cookie_Monster%27s_Foodie_Truck

There is both a two dimensional fake FJ-3 and a three dimensional real FJ-3. This is obviously the fake one:

And here are two photos of the real one:

This photo is from the Muppet Fandom page: https://muppet.fandom.com/wiki/Cookie_Monster%27s_Foodie_Truck

There’s even a Cookie Monster Foodie Truck book:

In an episode of Buttermilk Biscuits and Honey, the FJ-3 makes a brief appearance at the start of the show (it likely appears in others, but I don’t have the time to watch them all):

5 Folded Brochures of Different Models on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE: There are more of these five-brochure sets on eBay. View all the info on eBay. These are five out of the 20 issued (Form 600-01 through 600-20) during 1960. Slightly different, but similar brochures were published in 1959 (Form 59-01 through 59-20). The form number can be found at the bottom of the brochures. I’m working on assembling an entire list for each year. 

(02/09/2017) I bought and received a set of these. By the time you factor in the exchange rate, this is a good price.

“These are five small format (22 x 9 cms) six page two colour sales brochure folders for the 1960 Jeep range for the US market.
Produced by Willys Motors Inc in Toledo Ohio, in English and undated, but they are around 1960
All open out to about A4 size with good pics and specifications.
Covers the following models:
1960 Jeep Universal CJ-6
1960 Jeep Utility Wagon
1960 Jeep Pick-up Truck
1960 Jeep FC-150 Forward Control Truck
1960 Jeep FC-170 Forward Control Truck”

1959 or 1960 Mailer Brochure?

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Anyone have this brochure?

I don’t have it; but do have these old pics from a 2013 post. The problem is I can’t quite tell what the date (aka form number) is from 1959 or 1960. If you have this brochure, the date would be great. Scans would even be better, but I know that’s not simple for everyone.

I’m also interested in other 1958-1962 brochures. These all have date related-form numbers. I have a bunch, but not all of them. At some point this month I will create a list of what I have and what I need to more fully document the brochures from this era.

GPW & MB Data Plate Robbery

• CATEGORIES: Features
GPW30298-a

Example of a glove box and data plates from Tom’s collection. Each have a serial and date of delivery on the glove box lid.

Tom Furrer’s prized collection of GPW and MB glove box lids and tags were stolen as part of a robbery. Contact him through G503 with any questions: https://forums.g503.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=311501:

“To all my friends and fellow hobbyists in the Jeep world I need your help..

On November 1 Friday I was in Santa Rosa California helping my elderly mother who is 95 prepare to evacuate from the Kindle fire , we were one of 180,000 people told to prepare to evacuate. While I was down there my house that is in Columbia California was robbed and ransacked. I hadn’t even moved in yet yet these thieves got into my house ransacked the house and stole a lot of personal belongings of my mothers and myself ..

For many years by Elder father a World War II vet liked to tinker with jeeps and one of his hobbies was he collected data plates that where from both Ford and Willys Jeep‘s that were junked. When my father passed I continued with his hobby. By the time that he passed he had collected over 60 sets of these data plates most of which are still attached to the glove box doors.

Well these thieves got off with almost all of them and I need the help of every person in this hobby to be on the lookout for these plates. The thieves obviously know cars very well as they were able to move a locked vehicle out of the way to complete their crime. These plates will be extremely easy to identify and eventually I believe they’re going to end up in the hands of somebody who knows what they are and what their value is.

Please everybody keep your eyes open watch eBay watch swap meets. The identifying feature of every single plate is on the glove box door: the serial number and date of delivery written in black ink.

Please everybody keep a watch out I do believe over time they’re gonna turn up we’re too big of a family to let this kind of crap happen.

I Thank each and everyone of you.. Local sheriffs and law-enforcement are well aware of this and crime reports have been written.”

Hamilton Fire Patrol Jeep Antioch, IL $450

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

Thought used, this still looks fun for kids. It’s not quite stock anymore, as a bell is installed on the front bumper (sometimes an “H” is on the hood, other times a bell); the front bumper (bumper isn’t stock either). This appears to be missing the hose and ladder as well. There is more about Fire Jeep toys on the CJ-3B Page.
