UPDATE: Still Available.

(10/03/2019) The body has at least one patch along the driver’s side, so I’m not sure how this is a “new original steel tub”?

“Newly restored Jeep Willys CJ2A New original steel tub, body off restoration. About 85% original, Original motor and running gear all taken apart and redone. Great Jeep and lots of fun to drive, real head turner.”

Just a Few Posts for Wednesday

• CATEGORIES: Features

Only a few posts for Wednesday. I’ve begun re-organizing some of our older trips (Southwest Spring FC Roundup 2013 trip for example) to make navigating the pages easier. It turned out to be much more work than I’d planned, as I hadn’t gotten the hang yet of traveling and documenting a trip. My goal is to get them all organized in one section of the site … So, just a few updates for today.

If you want to see (or re-see) our 2013 Southwest trip, here it is:

Circus Themed Dealer Contest plus Record on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This oddity is being auction on eBay. It’s a neat piece for the right person; I haven’t decided it I’m the right person or not yet.

View all the information on eBay

jeep-sales-circus-record0 jeep-sales-circus-record1 jeep-sales-circus-record2 jeep-sales-circus-record3

“A splendid advertising promotion for a Factory-funded contest between dealers to sell Kaiser Jeep products. 7 1/4″ x 7 1/2″, slick illustrated paper with a very thin record of the same size, typical of a 45-RPM record – but in this case meant to be played at 33 1/3-RPM.

Jeep Sales Circus contest – undated;
Prepared under the Kaiser Jeep name – inaugurated 1963;
Kaiser Jeep address uses the Postal Code (Toledo 1, Ohio) which was discontinued in 1963 with the inauguration of Zip Codes;
Dealers could win points with each Jeep sale or with Jeep parts, Accessories sales;
No discussion about what you’d win;
Kaiser sponsorship of The Greatest Show on Earth” TV program – ABC-TV – the series ran for one year, 1963-1964.
A splendid and very uncommon sales promotion. Note – a glued strip attached the record to the brochure – directions called for the cover to be folded under the record and the back cover, and played on your record player in that format – the brochure and the record all show the center hole drill. This record was detached from the glued strip.”

1950 Wagon and Jeepster Ad

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Old News Articles

This April 30, 1950, ad in the Evening Star is another example of Willys-Overland seemingly targeting the same demographic for both vehicles. And that seems to be a reasonable approach. I haven’t investigated how often the company did this in their advertising yet.

“1948 Willys, CJ-2A. Rebuilt 4 cylinder “Go-Devil” Motor, transmission, transfer case, front and rear axles. New exhaust system including manifold , driveshaft, clutch, brake shoes, brake drums, brake lines, master cylinder, all pedals, water pump, all gauges, distributor, coil ,front axel shafts, wiring, front and rear leaf springs, leaf spring shackles, shocks and much, much more.
This Willys uses the original 6 volt system via a 6 volt alternator, working 6 volt generator comes with purchase. Also using a Saturn overdrive but have the original PTO that will also come with. Many spare parts will also come along with this Willys.
You are basically buying a new 1948 CJ-2A that runs and drives just like it should.
Have receipts for everything.
Down side…does need a new paint job and the reason I am selling is that the leg room is to short for me. If you are over 5 ft 10 in you should strongly look into a
CJ-3A as its driver seat is back 2 more inches.”

1942 Holden-Designed GPW Redding, CA $1552

UPDATE: It appears this may be a USMC-modified based on the Holden design, rather than an actual Holden. This may explain why Frank isn’t seeing details he’s expecting to see (see comments)? 

A person I trust has checked this out and confirms it’s a USMC Holden. But, it’s rough, too.

April 1954 Kaiser Willys News

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: .

A big thanks to Barney Goodwin (of Barneys Jeep Parts) for sending me this early edition of the Kaiser Willys News. This is issue #3. A couple interesting things about this issue. Perhaps the biggest curiosity is that there isn’t much related to jeeps in this issue, confirming that even by early 1954 there was still a lot of integration still going on. Issue #2, seen in the post below, also didn’t have much information related to jeeps. Volume 4 of the newspaper, which appeared in May (and can be seen below the #2 issue), had a few more jeep specific references.
