“1948 Willys CJ2A for sale. It was restored in the late 1980’s by my father. It has an olive drab paint finish, as well as olive drab canvas upholstery on the seat cushions and backs. My father converted the electrical system from 6 volt to 8 volt. The body tub is custom fabricated from steel. The grill and fenders are original. The hood, windshield frame, and tailgate are all original with the embossed Willy’s name. After the restoration, it was only driven in local parades, car shows and local events. We have stored the jeep under a cloth cover, inside a building since my father passed in 2004. We have recently replaced sparkplugs, points, condenser, fan belt, and battery. The fuel tank has been professionally cleaned and is in excellent condition. The carburetor has been rebuilt. It has fresh oil and coolant. The vehicle comes with a Service Manual from “Original Reproductions” New Beach, CA”

Dec 1969 Jeep Family Brochure from Kaiser Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Maury let me know that scans of a 1969 Jeep family brochure (Form 69-12) was posted to earlycj5.com page. There are three particularly interesting things to me about this brochure. Somehow, I never picked up a copy, so I found one on eBay.

1) The red CJ-5 shown with a couple “racing” it is a rare 462 model, perhaps it’s only appearance in a jeep-family-brochure;
2) the brochure doesn’t mentioned the model in the brochure; and
3) this jeep must have been part of a photo shoot (probably not really racing), because this brochure shows two photos of the same shoot and the 2018/2019 Dispatcher Magazine’s article on the 462 shows a third pic of the same jeep and couple.

Before the brochure, I’ll included the Dispatcher Magazine image:
