1944 Article Says the Big Three Automakers Are Tepid on the Post War Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old News Articles

The April 27, 1944, article in the Star Tribune out of Minneapolis argues that Ford, GM, and Chrysler did not believe the post-war jeep would be as successful as hoped, due to (1) the hard suspension and (2) a lack of appeal to the “woman of the family”. It seems they were right to be wary from a family perspective, but the big three didn’t foresee the wagons, which attempted to address both of these issues.

Year? M-38A1 Monroe, NJ $3600

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

This has an unusual data tag. As best as I can tell, this jeep is an M-38A1 “D”, at least based on m381.com page’s reference to the XM28 tag (see comparison tag here). This may have been one of the last converted M-38A1s into a “D” variant, given only approximately 50 were converted at the Detroit Arsenal.

1946 Jeep Trip From Hawaii to the Midwest

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

This photo captures three friends traveling from Hawaii to the midwest via Minnesota. Akira Tanaka, sitting in the driver’s seat, helped establish the military intelligence company that was part of Camp Savage in Minnesota.This was published in the September 16, 1946, issue of The Minneapolis Star.

I tried to learn more about these three, but didn’t have much luck. There was an Akira Tanaka that went to work for General Motors and built himself a home that was featured in a 1955 article in the Detroit Press. So, it’s possible that he graduated from College in Michigan, then went to work for GM. If that’s the case, he developed several automotive patents for the company.
