Year? CJ-2A Santa Maria, CA $2500


Has a 2A body and cj chassis. Has rear floating hubs.

“Solid Willy’s Jeep. As expected some rust. Jeep is complete less tailgate, windshield, and engine. Clean title in hand currently on a non-op, so no taxes owed. I bought this last year as a project, but life, COVID, and military move in near future has cause me to run out of time to build. I am asking $2500 OBO for the Jeep, but will also consider trades”

1962? Flattie Baltimore, MD $8950

• CATEGORIES: DJ-5 & DJ-6, Other 4x4s

UPDATE: Price dropped to $8950.

(03/12/2020) This custom 2WD creation is currently was being advertised as a 1949 jeep, but not anymore. The axles appear to be from a DJ-5B circa 1972. The centered pumpkin in the rear should help verify this era of rear axle. The body is a reproduction body. The frame could be something from 1962, hence the title.

“Vintage Willys Jeep – must see, garaged. Runs and looks great for such old vehicle! Has mount for machine gun. Also have soft top. Military plates on dash. Have to see to appreciate. New battery. Also comes with soft top. Windshield also folds down. Come with new exhaust system, which was just installed! Prefer cash deal but also may entertain trades. What do you have? Please come and inspect, you can drive it home! Looks and runs great.”

June 1946 Photo of Merced’s Abatement Jeeps

This June 20, 1946, photo and caption on the Gustine Standard shows six jeeps purchased by the city of Merced for Mosquito Abatement. I didn’t realize jeeps were used so early for anti-mosquito work in California.

Berg Truck & Parts Company Ads in Popular Mechanics

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

The first three ads appeared in Popular Mechanics during 1946, first in February, then March, then June. Note that the February ad does not include the King of Jeeps moniker, but the later two ads have it.


February 1946 Ad in Popular Mechanics, the earliest one I could find.


By June 1946 Berg was advertising Amphibious vehicles.

A November 1955 ad highlighted the use of private labeling by Berg. The hardtop looks like a Worman Jee-Cab that’s been rebranded “the Jeep King All Steel Cab”. I’m sure the “Jeep King Snow Plow” is another private labeled product.


This was the latest Ad from Berg that I found, though my searches were not extensive.

1943 GPW Antonito, TX $16,000


This GPW came from the Bernstein Bros, a company that began as a steel recycler in Pueblo. The business became successful and branched in various direction. Owner Morey Bernstein became famous as an amateur hypnotist and writer.





“In 1952 my Father and myself purchased this Jeep from Bernstein Bros a farm and ranch supplier in Pueblo, Colorado. Bernstein Bros purchased several islands in the Pacific after WWII and brought items back as salvage. Not sure but feel this vehicle was in the Pacific. My Father was a master restorer of old vehicles and rebuilt the engine during the winter of 52-53 and made any repairs necessary. The Jeep is titled Ford and has all F bolts but the engine says Jeep on it. The Jeep is almost stock and the only changes that were made was the addition of push plates on the front bumper and a tow bar. Also lockout hubs were added an altitude meter in the dash was installed and an electric fuel pump. I never found the shovel and the axe that mounts on the drivers side. I have all of the owners manuals that came with it.

In 1953 the Jeep was moved to our summer home in South San Juan mountains just south of Alamosa, Colorado and has been kept there in a garage for the last 67 years. The odometer now shows around 43,000 miles and it had many of them before the overhaul. Our summer home is only accessible in the summer and we use the Jeep for hunting and fishing during the summer months only.

I will be able to get back to our cabin by early May to retrieve the Jeep and it will be available then. The Jeep runs very well and has been used but never abused. It does need a wheel alignment there is a little shimmy at 30 MPH.”

Looks like a good price.

Clear Texas Title.

Engine and tranny, and tansfer case has some oil leaks. Rear brakes replaced, front brakes not. New tires at all 4 corners, radial but with “old days” tread. New Rugged Ridge locking hubs. It is a project in progress and will be a great project to finish. I am no longer retired and do not have the time to put into it. Been sitting in garage the past 2 years, except at Christmas when it was included in outdoor decoration.

May 1961 Jeep News


Just one post today. This is the last of the Jeep News papers I bought last month. Hopefully, I can locate some more soon.

This May 1961 issue contains ALOT of Surrey and Dispatcher jeeps: Ice Cream delivery, Pepe ‘actors’, and fleet transportation are just some of the uses. The Kellogg contest fills an entire page with lots of pics. The Truth or Consequences Jeep Derby results are highlighted. Even the Utah Jeep Posse’s are mentioned.

The ‘Jeep’ Fleet line of ads look interesting (page 3) ; I don’t know much about those.
