1954 M-170 Middletown, CT $22,000

• CATEGORIES: M-170 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Price dropped to $22,000.

(07/24/2020) Gary’s selling his beautiful M-170. It’s been on the cover of Military Vehicles Magazine and featured in Antique Truck magazine.

1954-m170-middletown-ct3

1954-m170-middletown-ct4

“Totally restored from frame up in 1997-98. All original drivetrain and body. Has all ambulance accessories such as both original stretcher racks, reel light, seats, complete NOS top with original doors, wheel well pads, etc. One of the few complete ambulance version M170’s around.

Drives and stops as it should. 24 volt system. All lights work. The only things wrong are the non-working temp gauge, tranny sometimes jumps out of second gear (a common issue with older Jeeps), and there is a “tick” in the clutch area that has no effect on the clutch or tranny shifting correctly. Just showed up several years ago and hasn’t had any effect on performance. Steering stabilizer added in 1998 to stop shimmy that occurred over hard bumps. No problem since.

Award winner and has been on cover of Military Vehicles Magazine and featured in Antique Truck magazine.

Registered in CT. bill of sale only.

This is a rare jeep model with only approx. 5000 made. This one has all the hard to find M170 parts and accessories. Very hard to find complete.”

1949 Jeepster Sales Tool Brochure for the Sales Force

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Documents, Features, Jeepster

This unique 36-page Jeepster sales tool aimed at the Willys-Overland sales force likely underscores a general lack of understanding about the Jeepster. It was a different enough vehicle from the utilitarian wagons, trucks and universal jeeps that the sales force may have had a challenge selling it to their standard clientele. That’s the only reason I can think that W-O created this document. I have not seen similar documents for other models.

Note that at one point the document argues that the Jeepster is NOT a convertible and NOT a sedan, but a SPORTS PHAETON. Bill pointed out to me that, like him, I always pronounced Phaeton  “Fay-ton”, with an accent on the first syllable. However, he saw a newsreel the other day and the voice-over pronounced it more like ‘Fay-et-on’ or ‘Fay-uh-ton; distinctly three syllables.

Moreover, the dictionary suggests that a Phaeton is pretty much a convertible or a touring open air car, rooted in a word for an open air four-wheeled wagon. Perhaps some more knowledgeable can distinguish between a Phaeton and a convertible??

Some of these pages worked better when shown together, so I’ve sewn together a few of them …

1943 Photo of Attu Island Signs & Jeep on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

I imagine the dancing and the beer would have been popular, but I’m less sure about the hardtack?

View all the information on eBay

“1943 Press Photo Attu Island, World War II. This is an original press photo. Attu Island. This sign on Attu Island points out the Japanese capital is closer to the strategic island than is San Francisco. Jeep riders also are warned that this is their last chance for “Dancing beer and hardtack”. This is one of the first pictures of the rugged island since the days when American forces wiped out the Japanese there. Photo measures 8.5 x 6.75 inches. Photo is dated 9-30-1943.”

Portuguese Jeep Ads

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Artists/Drawings, Features, International

I bought the following 5″x7″ Portuguese ads off of eBay for $2/ad plus shipping from Europe. The seller noted he had more ads, so sent me a link to 96 more (including lots of good early ads). He wanted to sell these outside of eBay, so I figured I’d get a better price, especially buying in bulk. Instead, he doubled the ads to $4/per ad. When I balked at the price, he claimed he was selling his ads for €6 on eBay ($7.09). Given I’d just bought them for $2, I was a bit confused by his claim. Maybe something was lost in translation, but, needless to say, I won’t be buying any ads from this seller outside of eBay.

These ads have some neat illustrative work.

“1943 Press Photo crates of Jeep parts are lifted onto an assembly line, England. This is an original press photo. Somewhere in England — A heavy maintenance company of U.S. Army Ordnance obviously had America’s ability for automotive production in mind when it decided to set up a Jeep assembly line at a depot in England. On a trial order from Army Ordnance Chiefs for the assembling of 2,000 Jeeps they established something of a record within a fortnight — with Jeeps rolling off the assembly line at the rate of one every 3 minutes. Following pictures show how it’s done. Crates of partly assembled Jeeps, just received from the US are being lifted onto the start of the assembly line.Photo measures 9 x 7.25inches.
