Jamesway Sprayer Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I spotted this brochure on eBay. It’s not jeep specific, but does depict a CJ-2A using the sprayer. Given the model of jeep, I imagine this was a late 1940s brochure. The brochure came from Canada and the company is from Winnipeg, so the brochure was likely meant for the Canadian market.

I’m showing the order of this 4-page brochure backwards, as the jeep is on the last page, not the first.

The 1943 Jeepmobile Trademark

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Barry spotted a 1943 trademark application for the term Jeepmobile. The application may have been denied, as the USPTO does not have a record of that term being awarded a registered trademark status.

Jeepmobiletrademark

So, why trademark the term? My guess is that W-O had noticed that the term was, at times, being used to describe the jeep. For example, the third paragraph in this 1941 article that appeared in a variety of newspapers describes the jeep as “jeep-mobiles” or “blitz buggies”:

1941-09-09-jeepmobile

September 09, 1941, The Daily Reporter out of Greenfield, IN.

The application claims the term was first used by the company on March 01, 1943, which likely means it should appear in some ad some where, but I couldn’t find any ad with that term.

Perhaps securing the term was a defensive measure against others using it (especially Ford)? We’ll likely never know.

After the war, the term pops up several times in newspaper articles as well. So, in some form, the term was used by the public most likely in casual conversation rather than as a formal description by W-O.

A Rural Willys Truck Hearse from Brazil

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

Blaine spotted this unusual Hearse from Brazil. Now that’s some style! According to the caption, “This is a Jeep Rural Willys adapted as a Funeral Car, which was used by the municipal government of the city of Pirajú, state of São Paulo, Brazil, in the early 1970s.”

Wanted: Old steering shaft with worn gear

• CATEGORIES: wanted

Brian wants to do a steering conversion to saginaw on his 1966 CJ-5 with a V-6 using a standard steering column. However, his steering shaft and box is in great shape, so he doesn’t want to cut the gear off the end. He was wondering if anyone has a steering shaft with a worn gear that he can use instead.

He’s located in central Illinois if anyone can help. Contact him at minerman1 @ juno.com (remove the spaces around the @ before emailing).

New Rear PTO Gear Box from India on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features

Barry noticed this rear PTO gearbox on eBay this morning. The condition is described as “new”. Either it is a reproduction piece out of India or perhaps it is a rebuilt item (given the imperfect condition of the housing)?  Unfortunately, the seller doesn’t have a great track record (at 88.4%).
