“WW2 military jeep. Never sectioned or wrecked. Very minor / easily repairable rust on side panel seams (see in pics). Needs hood repaired and original style windshield. Engine is the F head from a latter willys. Original hood will fit without the hole.

We purchased it in Barstow Ca. from the original purchaser in 1997. He used it on his farm and had purchased it from Fort Irwin in 1966.

Fuel system was gone through last year. All other systems are up to date and ready to drive. That is except the brake master seems to be low on fluid. Other than that, she runs and drive great.

Just don’t need or drive it enough to justify keeping it. Besides. My new shoulder doesn’t like either steering it or working on vehicles anymore.”

1962 Newspaper Ad For Hatari Movie

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This ad appeared in the October 30, 1962, issue of the Indiana Gazette (Indiana, Pennsylvania). Like other newspaper ads I found, no jeeps were placed within the movie ad itself. I know lots of other literature showed jeeps, such as movie posters. However, I was surprised to see no jeeps in any newspaper ads. Apparently, Ruffners, a jeep dealer in Indiana, Pennsylvania, didn’t like this either, so the company placed their ad within a Hatari Ad.

1962 Photo of Bob Pearsall Motors Promoting Hatari

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

UPDATE:  This post originated with an 8×10 glossy photo at the very bottom. Now, there is a small photo (from a personal camera?) version of the same photo for sale on eBay. It almost seems a reprint? 

View all the information on eBay

“Good vintage condition; some corner and edge wear, 3.5″ X 3.5″ and 4.5″ X 3, glossy. Please see the photos for more details. Smoke free home.”

Compare this vintage photo with the larger one at the bottom. Coincidence that they look the same?

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

Original Post March 2, 2020: Since I posted this, Barney has determined that this is likely a 1963 Tux Park III CJ-5. He reports the following:

“I went to my library and W-1155 particulars for the Mk III show it CJ5 only. The one for the Mk IV printed in 1964 W-1175 show availability as a 5a and 6a.”

“Here’s a classic & very scarce 8″ tall by 10” wide B&W glossy photo from a Chattanooga, Tennessee Jeep dealer advertising the John Wayne movie “Hatari” back in 1962 -Photo features a real photo image of a man (presumably a local radio DJ from WKDA radio named Eddie Kilroy) dressed in safari gear with a pith helmet and rifle seated in an open jeep with signs all over the outside of the vehicle reading: “See and Drive the new Jeep Tornado OHC Powered Bob Pearsall Motors”… “Kilroy is Here! to see Hatari! Starring John Wayne NOW Tennessee Theatre.”… “See and Drive the new Tornado OHC Powered Jeep at Bob Pearsall Motors”… “I’m Eddie Kilroy the great game player from WKDA 1240 on the dial. Follow me to Hatari! at the beautiful Tennessee Theatre”… “See Hatari! Tennessee Theatre. See Jeep Vehicles in Action! Bob Pearsall Motors”

The vehicle is parked in a downtown lot with other billboard signs all around too-The photo has some wear with a minor center crease, but still a neat dual collectible item that will display nicely! How many of these throwaway items survived? This is an ORIGINAL item, NOT A REPRODUCTION item!
