L-226 Edmunds Finned Head South Gardiner, ME $5000

“Up for sale is an ultra rare Kaiser/Willys Edmunds aluminum finned cylinder head for the 226 engine. You may not see another one of these, there aren’t many around. There also weren’t many performance parts produced for the 226 engine. I can’t say this is an NOS part, but it is very clean and appears to be unused.

Warn 800G Gasoline & 400E Electric Winch Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Maury spotted a collection of brochures and parts booklets on eBay that I was lucky enough to win. One of the brochures describes the portable, gasoline-powered Model 800G Warn Winch. On the other side of the brochure is an Electric Marine Model 400E Winch. A post from 2017 about the 800G includes pics of it.

The Model 800G Gasoline Warn winch:

According to Warn Industries, the Model 800G ad below is from 1969. 
warn-marine-winch-warn-portable-winch-brochure1-lores
Between February 1970 and April 1970, Warn also included the winch in a Four Wheeler inner-cover, full-page advertisement. Given the importance of the company’s hubs and vehicle winches to Warn’s profit margins, I’m surprised the company included the 800G in this full color ad. Perhaps management had high hopes for the product? Whatever the hopes, I can find no evidence that Warn advertised the 800G ever again after April 1970.

Real-world example from the Warn website, There are also pics on Warn’s Facebook Fan page.

Nearly Identical Catalogs?

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

As part of the collection of brochures/booklets I received yesterday from my eBay win, I also received three jeep parts catalogs: a 1963 Montgomery Ward, a 1964 Sears, and a 1966-1967 Bergs catalog. I was surprised to discover that the Sears and Berg catalogs are nearly identical. Maury confirmed that his 1968 Sears catalog is also nearly identical. So, if you are bidding/buying late 1960s jeep parts catalogs, I felt folks should be aware of this. Below are some comparison pages.

The covers are customized.

bergs-sears-comparison-front-cover

Sears is shown on the top and Bergs on the bottom. The inner cover and first page (labeled page 3) are custom:

1976 Matchbox Flattie, Glider and Trailer **SOLD**

UPDATE: After pondering it a while, I decided to get this set for Christmas … better late than never??

I would have been 11 when this jeep and glider set was released by Matchbox. I don’t remember seeing this combo in my 1976 Christmas Sears Wish Book. I’m feeling a bit cheated!
