1946? Issue of ‘Jeep’ News

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

Many thanks to long-time reader Dave Nelson for sending me this rare copy of ‘Jeep’ News. While there is no date stamp that I could find, there is a reference to an April 1946 study in one of the articles; yet, none of the jeeps pictured has the later 2A grille. So, I’m going to guess this is a summer 1946 document.

Also strange is that this wasn’t published out of Toledo. Instead, the mail address is listed as “Jeep” NEWS, Room 700, 305 East 45th South, New York 17, NY.

Finally, also strange, is that a colorized version of this was also produced and it included a reference to the magazine being Vol 1 No 1. If there was a second ‘Jeep’ News made, I have not seen it. My guess is that this was meant to be an advertising piece for dealerships, but it didn’t pan out, so was pulled after one (or a few) issues.

I published this last year

1946-furgason's-jeep-news2

Evan Gillenwater posted the cover of this magazine to Facebook. He seems to think it came from Furgason’s Motors in La Grande, Oregon. The magazine was found at an antique store in New Hampshire.

Here’s the full issue from Dave:

NOT A 1942 MB Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada BaT

• CATEGORIES: MB

UPDATE: This was (mistakenly or fraudulently) billed as a 1942 MB.

Bill shared this Briing-A-Trailer auction of a 1942 MB with some unusual mods, including the installation of a Toyota 3C turbodiesel.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1942-jeep-mb-4/

“This 1942 Willys MB was acquired by the seller in 2021 and subsequently refurbished and repowered with a 2.4-liter Toyota 3C turbodiesel inline-four mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a two-speed transfer case. Finished in matte green over green cloth, the Jeep is equipped with auxiliary lights, a fold-down windshield, side-mounted digging tools, 16″ wheels, a rear-mounted Jerry can and spare wheel and tire, and a trailer hitch. This Jeep is now offered in Canada with Ontario registration in the seller’s name.”
