It ran prior to being placed into deep storage and was stored in the proper manner for doing so.”

August 1953 Article “Jeeps Goes International”

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine

I bought this August 1953 issue of Cars magazine for the jeep article, but it also has all kinds of interesting information in it. The article “The Jeep Goes International” by Evan Jones highlights how various companies in different countries were capitalizing on the demand for jeep vehicles by manufacturing jeep-like vehicles of their own. The story discusses the new Austin Champ, the Fiat Campagnola, the Land Rover, and the Delahaye V.I.R.

Fabulous Tuckers Museum & Road Show

• CATEGORIES: Features

The jeep-related story in the August 1953 issue of Cars Magazine was interesting, but what really caught my eye was reading a letter-to-the-editor by someone named Nick Jenin. In his short note, he mentioned that he owned five Tucker Torpedo cars and operated a museum called “The Fabulous Tuckers” in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

January 23, 1953, in the Fort Lauderdale News

Jenin purchased a total of ten Tuckers between 1952 and 1957. Jenin loved his Tuckers, enough to operate a traveling Tucker show that was also called the “Fabulous Tuckers”. TheOldMotor.com website has some great vintage photos of the traveling road show.

L-134 Andover, NH $525

• CATEGORIES: Engine

Seller notes that one cylinder might be low on compression.

https://nh.craigslist.org/pts/d/andover-1949-willys-jeep-l134-engine/7145976829.html

L-134-andover-nh

“Selling a circa 1949 Willys Jeep L134 engine. Serial number on block looks like 3J31507. This came out of a 1949 CJ-3A so has the proper front plate with the mounting flange bent forward on the drivers side (to accommodate the fuel pump). Could be used in other models by swapping out the front plate (or making an adapter). It was a runner, but my recollection on the history was that one of the cylinders was low on compression and a fresher engine was swapped in it’s place. So expect that this engine needs a rebuild. But is NOT stuck, spins free.

I swapped a lot of the components over at the time to that fresher jeep engine so this is missing some of the external components such as the starter, generator, distributor, etc. I stored this engine inside, so was not sitting outside in the elements; it’s NOT rusty and crusty… It’s a great core to start a restoration with. Please study the photos as they form a part of the description. Stand not included, just the engine. Engine is located in Andover, NH.”

June 1946 Article on the 30,000 Jeep Produced

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old News Articles

This short article appeared in the June 24, 1946, issue of the Daily Times out of New Philadelphia, Ohio. I assume that the 30,000 production number relates to CJ-2As. Interestingly, 35% of jeeps were for ‘agricultural’ uses while 43% were heading to ‘industry’. The remaining 22% fell under the ‘miscellaneous’ category.
