Interesting Wood Jeep from 1999

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models

Here’s the model I mentioned a few days ago. The date still looks to indicate that it was built in 1999. The builder’s name looks more like “Arbets” to me, but I can’t tell for sure.

The workmanship is great. It assembles easily and precisely. It’s a cool jeep. I’ve included the Ogelsby for comparison. Here it is disassembled.

More Jeep ‘Toys’

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

Joe-in-Mesa and his wife Jan like to explore antique stores while exploring towns throughout Arizona. Every once in a while I get a call or text from Joe telling me he found a good deal on a model jeep, which usually ends up costing me money, lol. Thanks for being on the hunt Joe!

This time he spotted three models at the same shop. The Ogelsby was in particularly good condition, so I couldn’t pass that one up. The pink Surrey was another good price. Finally, the Tonka Jeepster Convertible was one I didn’t have, so I told him to throw that in as well.

1946 CJ-2A Broken Arrow, OK $10,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, CJ-3A

Listed as a 1946, this could actually be a 3A (or certainly looks like one).

1946-cj2a-ba-ok6 1946-cj2a-ba-ok7 1946-cj2a-ba-ok8 1946-cj2a-ba-ok9

“This is truly a fantastic full body off restoration using most original parts. Very nicely done CJ-2 with good metal all around, in great running condition. Starts easily, strong original 4 cylinder engine,shifts nicely through the gears and the transfer case with lock out hubs is sound. It also has a nice top and sport bar. Not an original color, but attractively finished in a light metallic teal green with good seat upholstery. All glass and rubbers are excellent with 5 brand new tires and 5 clean, bright wheels. This is a turn key vehicle. The only things that need a bit (and I do mean just a bit)of attention are the gas gauge and the carburetor as it leaks a little. Everything else – wipers, lights, speedometer, etc. work fine. No signs of rust, rot or prior collision damage. Bargain priced for quick sale at $12000 or best offer FOB Broken Arrow, Okla.”

“1943 Willys-Overland MB (Jeep) 1/4 Ton 2dr Truck 4×4 4-cyl. 134.2cid/60hp 3-speed manual My Dad’s first boss (a mechanic- owner of a garage) loaned him this vehicle when he was 16 years old (1947). His Boss then continued for 59 years to used the Jeep mainly at a family cabin with acreage. When he passed away, he gave it back to our Dad who was in the VCC and enjoyed vehicles.

Restoration started in 2008. Original body, engine and 6 volt were restored. Jeep was painted green and canvas top and seats were redone. There are a set of old wheels-tires that were on it when we got it but we drive the jeep with different tires. It has been garaged since we have owned it. We do not know how many actual miles are on the jeep but gauge reads 34959. The back tire cover with 1943 ad was added. A mechanic has recently checked engine and brakes and it is ready for it’s new home. Whatever your “General Purpose”, this GP will make it Memorable and Fun!”

Year? ‘Jeep’ News V. 1 No. 6

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Thanks to Jan for pointing out that on page 4 are two photos of a 2A with a driver’s side spare tire. That would suggest that this issue was printed later than around mid-1948. Given the Santa highlight on the cover, I’d say the Fall/Winter of 1948 prior to the introduction of the CJ-3A. If that’s the case, then maybe these came out every six months? 

Thanks to Jan in the Netherlands for sharing a scanned version of the late 1940s issue of ‘Jeep’ News Volume 1, Number 6.  The “Cristie’s” at the top of the banner is a reference to Cristie’s Garage out of Monticello, New York.

I wonder if the Mahl Loader shown in a photo on Page 6 out of Minnesota is the one that was restored here.

Kentucky Mountain Scenic ‘Jeep’ Tours in an FC

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

This June 28, 1970, article form the Lexington Herald describes tours of Kentucky’s Red River area via a modified FC-170. The business was started by Mr. and Mrs. Joe Bowen with a VW bus, but it’s easy to imagine that a better vehicle was needed.

I looked for additional articles about this endeavor, but didn’t have any luck locating anything.
