1980 Malotte Manufacturing Brochure

This rare 1980 Malotte Manufacturing brochure for fiberglass bodies was an interesting one to run across, as it includes a couple eastern dealers (see bottom image). This might explain where some of the older fiberglass bodies in the PA/OH area originated.

Bay City Antique Fire Truck Sale

• CATEGORIES: Features

Roger Martin shared the news that the Antique Toy and Firehouse Museum in Bay City, Michigan, is selling some of their extra fire trucks including a 1958 fire jeep (see the Barn Finds post about the sale), though the fire jeep has sold already (I have no pics of it). Ann and I visited in 2013 and had a wonderful tour courtesy of the owner Jim Dobson.

Our 2013 visit:

Here’s some pics of some of the toys jeeps he has, which I ran out of room to post previously. He has more than this:

1952 M-38 Schertz, TX $16,000

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

A variety of extras are included on this M-38. The windshield seems like it leans back a little farther than it should. I’ve never heard the term “Restored to Combat Class”.


“Has original parts, 24 volt system. Many original add-on’s that make this a unique find. Please see photos and review the video for running Jeep featuring a narrative from the owner and a full scope of all that is included with this sale.

Several of your inquiries have been to include further photos of what items are extra in my Dads large bin that comes with the Jeep. I’ve put many more photos in the ad now, several items most likely will have no interest to you, nevertheless they come with the Jeep.

I’ve personally never looked at the underside of the Jeep until I took these photos, it is not that easy to snap these upside down, but I did my best. I should tell you that it will have a few areas I know that need to be sanded, I believe on the right front passenger side on the undercarriage. The Jeep has been sitting several years without care, covered, but still without my dads care due to his illnesses, and I know he has not been able to maintain or do further work that he had planned on completing with the Jeep. But, all things considered, it’s not a shiny showpiece, however, it is one heck of a Jeep!

We’d Love to hear from you, make your best offer!”

Year? Willys Station Wagon Ad From Canada

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This Willys-Overland of Canada Limited wagon ad is listed as a 1945 ad, but given the wagon wasn’t introduced until mid-1946, I’d say that date is a mistake. The text mentions the “new, rugged Willys Trucks”, which weren’t introduced until mid-1947. That style of wagon was used in numerous 1948 ads and the Willys-Overland graphic made an appearance in some of the 1948 ads, too. The lack of any mention of the wagon being a jeep is curious, as Willys-Overland didn’t make a big push on dropping ‘Jeep’ from its advertising until late 1949.

1945 MB Lebanon, OR $10,500


UPDATE: It’s been painted since it was last listed. Price has dropped to $10,500.

(04/10/2019) Runs and drives. Needs a little work.

“All original WW2 Jeep. Complete and running. Includes new military non directional tires mounted on original combat rims. Includes matched spare tire also on combat rim. Top and seat covers were recently replaced (new original style). Was told engine has been recently rebuilt and probably has less than 200 miles on it. Appears to have been originally painted olive drab, but has since been painted Navy gray. Had planned on returning paint color to olive drab and purchased 1 gallon of paint which will be included in sale. Bumpers are in very good condition and very well could be originals.

Brakes work well enough to stop it, but could use some maintenance. Has been stored under cover. Park brake not hooked up and lights will need to be rewired. Original 6 volt system with 8 volt battery.”
