“A 72 year old rust free car that runs great and still holds a lot of its original picket gray paint. Wheels are still original paint woth their pinline under an aging respray. I’ve gradually been rubbing it off to get to the original paint.

Original motor, running strong. Rebuilt brakes and lines, rear end, new shocks, no rust, new exhaust, rebuilt front 4×4 axles, lights, signals and horn all work. Rebuilt carb, reupholstered seats in the original gray Very fun to drive, easy going beach cruiser. Lay the top down or flip the windshield up.

Peppy original 4cyl motor in original condition with one rebuild sometime in the 50’s, according to the metal plate installed on the motor at the time.

Tons of history, tons of originality, and a lot of work to get it running right while looking original.

New tires and innertubes are included as well. These ones hold air and drive but have cracking. I haven’t had time to go get them installed but they’re ready to put on. Same style as those in the photos, just brand new.”

Steve forwarded this photo found on Flickr and posted to the Just a Car Guy website. It features a CJ-3A parked (?) in front of a rickety bridge. Now, whether is a bridge or more of a pier-like platform for dumping stuff isn’t clear to me.

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

Originally Published June 26, 2016: This 1943 article shares news about Theodore Roosevelt Jr. and his jeep “Rough Rider”. A year after this article, at age 56, Roosevelt became the oldest service member to land on D-Day, winning the Medal of Honor for his efforts. He was later portrayed by Henry Fonda in the Longest Day. It is also claimed that Roosevelt was a part of the only father-son duo to land on D-Day, as his son Quentin II landed on June 6th also. Here’s a synopsis of his life. He died from a heart attack a few months after D-Day.

Here is a photo from an eBay listing:
“This is an original press photo. Brig. Gen. Theodore Roosevelt, son of the famous “Rough Rider” rests on the bumper of his jeep, dubbed “Rough Rider,” and reads his mail. Brig. Gen. Roosevelt is director of Liaison to the Cef.Photo measures 8.5 x 6.75inches. Photo is dated 1-18-1944.”

A Little Jeep Goes A Long Way Poster $279

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This “A LITTLE JEEP GOES A LONG WAY”, if you take care of it framed poster was spotted in an antique store. It’s priced at $279 and claimed by the seller to be a prototype poster. How the seller would know this isn’t clear to me, but it looks like a pretty good sized and unique item.

There’s no size listed (and it might already be gone), but I’d estimate the size at about 30″ wide by 24″ tall (if the peg board holes are 1″ apart).
