1965 CJ-5 Tux Park Klickitat, WA $8500

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: .

Blaine spotted this Tux Park IV accidentally listed under the trailers category. Could be worth a look. I can’t tell if there is some whitish spray paint on the lower half of the doors or if that is caused by shadows.

Just a Few Monday Updates

• CATEGORIES: News

We spent part of Sunday down in Walla Walla, looking at a few houses, eating gourmet gas station food at Andrae’s Kitchen, grabbing some bakery goodies at the Walla Walla Bread Company, and checking out the flooding that rocked the area last week. So, just a few updates related to the 1956 brochures for Monday.

1956 Forms W-25X-XX Brochures

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

UPDATE: I had these marked down as 1957 brochures, but they actually appear to be 1956 brochures.

In trying to organize some of the brochures that were produced for 1956, I have acquired these five brochures that have similar form numbers, but differing designs depending on whether they were for the domestic or export market. After all the efforts to harmonize the 1954/1955 product brochures, to have these brochures look different is a bit of a head scratcher to me.

I have three similar domestic brochures and two similar export brochures, yet they all have similar Form numbers. I’ve dated them 1956 based on the “-6” ending to the Form number. Below is an overview of the brochures. Posts with a full look at each individual brochure follow this post.

Additionally, it seems like there should be at least one additional brochure based on the Form Numbers; I’m missing W-251-6 and W-251-6X, if they existed.

  1. Form W-250-6 (CJ-5/CJ-6/CJ-3B):
    1957-truck-form-W-250
  2. Form W-250-6X (CJ-5/CJ-6/CJ-3B) Export:
    1956-form-w-230-6x-export-cj5-1-lores
  3. Forms W-251-6 or W-251-6X: Anyone have either one?
  4. Form W-252-6 (Trucks):
    1957-truck-form-W-252
  5. Form W-252-6X (Trucks) Export:
    Photos
  6. Form W-253-6 (Wagons):
    1957-truck-form-W-253
  7. Form W-253-6X (Wagons) Export: Anyone have this form?

1956 CJ-5/CJ-6/CJ-3B Export Brochure Form W-250-6X

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This 1956 CJ-5/CJ-6/CJ-3B brochure targeted the export market. It’s form number is Form W-250-6X, however it looks nothing like it’s Form W-250-6 CJ-5 brochure counter part. It’s larger and folds out to 17″ x 22″ (vs 17″ x 11″ for the domestic version). Why re-use the form number, but make the brochure wholly different from the domestic brochure? I haven’t a clue.

1956 Domestic Wagon Brochure Form W-253-6

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This 1956 Wagon brochure Form W-253-6 likely has an export version labeled Form W-253-6X, yet I have had no luck locating it. I expect the export version design will be similar to Form W-250-6X (CJ-5/CJ-6/CJ-3B) and Form W-252-6X (Truck). This brochure opens up to 17″x11″.

Hotchkiss CJ-3B Brochure on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This Hotchkiss CJ-3B brochure appears to have been made in coordination with the Willys-Overland Export company, as some of the imagery and design is similar. Given the CJ-3B was considered the “New Jeep”, I’d say this brochure must have been published in 1953.

Below is the French version of the brochure, which is on eBay. The one below that is one from my collection.
