1946 Plans for Electric Jeep in Mechanix Illustrated

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine, Models, Old Images, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

UPDATE: I wonder if this electric jeep pictured in the November 05, 1943, issue of the Arizona Republic newspaper was the inspiration for the Jeep for Junior published in 1946?

1943-11-05-arizona-republic-jeep-for-junior-electric-lores

=======================

The post originally ran in 2014: These plans for an “Electric Jeep for Junior” come from a September 1946 Issue of Mechanix Illustrated Magazine.

Photo of a Fire Department Jeep in Parade on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

This looks to be a press photo of a fire department jeep from the city of Columbus, Georgia, that’s been all dressed up for a memorial or a parade. The coffin seems to be more a statement than a solemn tribute. The jeep looks to be an MB or GPW.

Evans Clearfloat Lighter w/ CJ-5 **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

UPDATE: This sold for $66 plus shipping of $15.

This unique lighter with an entombed jeep model has already reached $26 (+$15 shipping) with four days to go.

dudley-cj5-lighter

“What a great piece. During the 1950s and 1960s Evans teamed up with the Clearfloat Company to create various see through lighters with miniaturized items “floating” inside. This one has a miniaturized figural Willys Jeep.

The lighter is also marked “Dudley”. Likely, this piece was a gift from the Jeep Dealer of Dudley, Massachusetts to their Jeep Customers. If anyone knows more about them, please drop me a line and I will add it to the info.

The Jeep inside this great decor piece is superbly detailed. I have pictured it from all angles for your inspection. Since the craftsmen at Clearfloat made these lighters by hand, there are no two of them alike. This special piece is in excellent condition with a snappy action. The flint tube is clear and a it has a great spark from the new flint that was installed for your convenience.

Here is your chance to add this Good-Looking Evans Clearfloat Décor Table Lighter to your collection – Thanks for looking.”

1952 M-38 Portland, OR $8000

• CATEGORIES: M-38

The seller has lots to say, though some of it is inaccurate (1952 was not the last of the L-134 engines for example). The seller claims the M-38 has heavier duty running gear and frame; while the frame does have additional boxing and supports, the running gear is the same as the CJ-3A (More on the similarities/differences here). The sellers also states it is an “unrestored survivor”, yet then describes the changes the previous owners have made and the changes the seller himself also made.

1952 Willys M38 Military ‘Universal Jeep’

Great Runner/Driver UnRestored Survivor, DUAL PTO, Winch and ZERO RUST!

THIS LISTING IS DETAILED TO SHARE THE IMPORTANT INFORMATION THAT A SERIOUS BUYER/TRADER WOULD WANT TO KNOW! PLEASE READ IT ALL BEFORE CONTACTING ME!

I’m considering letting go of my 1952 Willys M38, a.k.a. an MC, the original 4×4 American warhorse utility vechicle. This is a special survivor with important recent maintenance and upgrades.

VIDEO WALKAROUND HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkDBhzqPZeE

First off this is a real m38 Military jeep — so heavier duty frame and running gear than the contemporary Civilian model, the CJ-3A. 1952 is the last year of the “Flat Fender” Military Jeeps (much cooler than the M38a1), and also the last and best year of the Willys L134 “Go Devil” engine. I got it from the family which bought it at Government auction in the early 60s. It saw only very light use as a hunting vehicle for over 50 years and was literally kept in a barn and as a result is very very original and 100% RUST FREE ORIGINAL METAL.

Year? GPW? Harrisburg, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: GPW (Ford MB), MB

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5800.

The price seems reasonable on this mix-of-parts jeep. It has a GPW body. Given the hood bump, it might have an f-head, too.

1941 Willys “Jeep.” A true American hero. She served in WW II and was dissembled and then reassembled to serve again in the Korean War. She is titled as a 1941 but appears to have parts through the Korean War as was common for military Willys. She runs but is 79 years old. Her 4wd will take you anywhere. Please do not bid or buy if you do not intend to complete the sale. I have recently downsized my house and no longer have the space for this historical vehicle.”

“I have owned this jeep for 24 years, restored it and drove it in parades and entered a couple car shows as well. Health problems have kept me from maintaining it the way it should be and I no longer have a garage to store it in or work on it. It has some rust on driver side front fender, passenger side under door, and floor pans. The frame is solid, motor was rebuilt in 2001 and has low miles on it. Jeep has not been started in several years so the gas tank will need to be cleaned out thoroughly. Many extras like mud/snow tires and wheels, military manual, old parts, and contacts for every nut bolt and screw. This would make a great restoration project since M38s
are rare and this one has only 42,456 original miles.”
