1955 D.L. Beck Mfg Hardtop Brochure

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

This 4-page brochure from D.L. Beck Manufacturing included a separate price list that dates the brochure around August 1, 1955. Curiously, the “Econo” hardtop was no longer featured in the brochure (see a 1954 example brochure at the bottom of this post). Apparently that “Econo” line of hardtops wasn’t good enough after all (see letter at the bottom that explains the reference).

1948 CJ-2A Dorset, OH No Price


Unsure how much value is here.

“This is a 1948 Jeep Willy’s cj2a. Motors locked but the block still looks good. It’s a 4×4 and it still goes into all gears hi/lot and 4wd. Both diffs are good and the steering column is good. Springs are rusty (like the rest of it) but no cracks. The frame could be reused but there’s a few holes that need patched up. The cab is pretty much gone but that and the fenders come with the chassis as a reference for remaking them. Good project for someone’s who got the time.”

“1946 Jeep (CJ2) for sale! This one of a kind ride is not for the faint of heart. I purchased this vehicle for several reasons. I appreciate someone’s labor of love, the time, patience and skill it requires to turn a heirloom into a beautiful racing machine. This itself is a memorable challenge and an accomplishment. A few things were kept original.

In 2010 the original family owners took it off the road, took the 350 out, bought a new 350 4 Bolt Main, and ripped it down **every nut, bolt, gasket and more…** It was built by a Chevy Master Mechanic of 38 years. Everything was done from the heads, lifters, cam, new transfer case, rear end, 411 gears, and so much more that is way too much to list.

Don Pratt Jeep Tours

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Old Images, Old News Articles, Postcards • TAGS: .

UPDATE: As best as I can tell, it looks like 1963 was when Don Pratt’s Jeep Tours began working with the Kachina Cab company.  The article appeared in the August 13, 1963, issue of the Arizona Republic:

1963-08-13-arizona-republic-don-pratt-jeep-tours-sedona3-lores Clipping from Arizona Republic -


Originally posted June 2019:  According to this Pink Jeep Tour site, Pink Jeep Tours is the oldest continuously operating Jeep Tour Company in the United States. It was started in 1958 by a Sedona Realtor named Don Pratt, who would drive clients to see homes at Broken Arrow Estates. The Broken Arrow tour is the original Jeep tour and is still today the most popular tour in Sedona.Why did he make the jeeps pink? Mr. Pratt got the idea while visiting the Royal Hawaiian Hotel on Waikiki Beach, where everything was pink.

But, that’s only part of the story. In her book Echoes of Sedona Past, Mary Lou Keller explains how her and her husband cleared the first trail and how, when Glenn Keller decided not to open a jeep tour business, their friend Don Pratt asked if he could do it instead. Mrs. Keller covers the story in five pages of her book available to read on Google.The book also includes the image below of Mary Lou Keller with her do Pico in her (probably) 1946 CJ-2A:
