This has an unusual roll bar setup. Unclear how much work it needs.

“I am selling my 1943 Ford Willy’s gpw. I have had this jeep for nearly 16 years. I somewhat restored it while I was younger but left for school and it sat for a while only being driven once or twice a year until the radiator blew a year or two ago. Since then it has sat waiting for some love. I currently don’t have the time or the money to get this where it needs to be. Hate to let it go but it’s hard to keep. Let me know if you have any questions.”

McCain Hub Winch Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I recently purchased a special equipment binder off ebay. Usually, there are a few interesting brochures inside. This time, it was full of these pink price sheets, like this:


However, thankfully, inside the book there was a second small booklet that did have some brochures, and a few interesting ones.

As an example, I’ve never run across this unusual 4-page McCain Hub Winch brochure.

Mico No-Stuk Brochure
