It’s been a long two months, but the bunkhouse exterior remodel is almost done. In the last week I have finished up the side deck and the front step. Unfortunately, the first time I installed the front step posts I was off by half an inch on one side and an inch on the other. So, I had to dig them up and re-position them. Ugh … anyway, I got everything fixed yesterday.

Yesterday, instead of doing updates,  I felt my age as I moved 65 bales of hay in 95 degree heat from the neighbor’s pasture to our place. It proved to be a good workout! We’ll likely buy all of his next batch (last cutting of the year) as well, making us well-stocked for the winter.

Tom Cruze has been a busy body. Here he is checking our the huge nectarines that have emerged (to our surprise). It seems trimming the tree this spring did wonders for both the nectarines and the peaches (also much bigger than last year).

When not climbing, Tom Cruze continues to be “one of the dogs”. Here he is showing the girls how tough he is. He’s also begun accompanying the girls outside to close the gate (a nightly excuse to take the girls for a walk). The first pic is pre-mayhem:

“1946 Jeep cj2a Story that came with it this was “The hunting Jeep. Had an engine swap late 70’s early 80’s. Said to have a 350 v8 from a late 60’s early 70’s corvette that had been in a wreck.” Firewall is not cut out.. Very solid.. Little rust.. Engine will need overhauled.. Transmission shifts into gears. Jeep is very much a project. Does not run. Does not drive. Top and doors need reupholstered but frame work is there. Has removable center seat! Needs a new windshield frame and front hubs. This was a running driving unit before it sat in a field for years after original owner/builder passed away. Great start for restoration, needs to go to someone that’ll get to it sooner then I will hate to see it sitting. Trade for aluminum boat or 1962-1973 Ford Truck.”

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:
