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.

This brochure appears on the back of the 800G brochure. I could find no other information about it online.

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:

Interior pages 4-5 begin the identical part of the catalogs:

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

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

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!

“Original 1976 Lesney England Matchbox Jeep and Glider
Transporter / Gliding Club.

This is a complete set; Condition C-6 due to numerous light marks
mostly on jeep. Not readily noticeable due to color, but can be easily seen under
magnification”

“This is worth any Jeep fans consideration. ‘52 Willys Jeep M38, Built March, 1952. This would make a great father-son project.
This Jeep served its late owner very well, taking him well south of Panama and back around 1980. There are several very nice features, including factory optional heater. Roll bar, soft top frame, doors, fiberglass; hood, locking front hubs, and un-installed fiberglass
front fenders. Very nicely done, a very long time ago, there was a ‘60’s GM Iron Duke, 2.5 L 53 CID L4 engine, complete with the alternator and wiring harness, retro-fitted into this appreciating classic. The engine needs at least a rebuild. Brakes and suspension will need servicing. Nice aftermarket turn signal/hazard switch, 7 gauge instrument panel, alloy wheels, good tread on old tires. Stored partially covered for last 35 years. Very little rust, besides the front fenders. I have a current Oklahoma Title and tag in hand.
Priced to sell quickly. $1295 FIRM. $1500 if you want to negotiate”
