Pepperdine University’s Digital Archives includes a photo of Academy Award Winning Art Director Water Tyler in a DJ-3A Gala jeep. He was involved in a variety of movies from the 1940s through the 1970s. In this case he was working on the Elvis Presley movie “Fun in Acapulco“.

Late 1948 America’s Most Useful Vehicles Brochure

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

UPDATE: There’s another of these brochures on eBay for $44.95 (plus $4.68 shipping).

View all the information on ebay

This 1948 jeep family brochure was likely produced in late 1948, as there’s a reference to an upcoming expectation “in early 1949” within the text. Outside of that reference, there’s no date stamp or form number. I’ve only seen few of these pop up for sale on eBay, so I snagged this one right away. I believe it represents the earliest and most complete (in pics and text) listing of the full line of jeep models for the civilian market (it lacks any military models and business-focused models, such as the Package Delivery Vans).

I especially like the illustrations. The discussion of the different factory divisions at the back was interesting, too. Including the covers, the brochure is 26 pages.

“*Title is not usable, was filled out but never taken to license bureau* Rolling chassis project Ford GPW. This is an authentic WWII Jeep. Has enough there to be a restoration project, but could also be a restomod.

Paperwork shows it came from Kettering, Ohio in 1980, then went to Indianapolis, IN. In 1994 it was sold at public auction. Has the true GPW frame with square radiator crossmember. The serial number on the title is GPW10723 which puts it at early 1942, but the body number is 208184 which is post 1943. Original drivetrain is missing and both axles are simply housings – no shafts or pinions. Body and frame have their fair share of patches as shown in the photos.”

1964 Test and Articles About Jeeps Sprouting Wings

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old News Articles

In May of 1964 newspapers across the country shared the news of the Army testing out an idea where v-shaped flexible wings were attached to vehicles such as jeeps, allowing them to be pulled behind aircraft and flying to their destinations.

I tried to find photos of the jeeps with V-wings, but I had no luck. There is this example of the Army testing the v-wing concept they called a “Fleep”, which may use a similar flexible v-wing.
