Carl Sandburg’s 1962 CJ-6 in Flat Rock, North Carolina

• CATEGORIES: Features

Pulitzer Prize winning poet and author Carl Sandburg was the owner of a CJ-6 which can still be seen at his form home, now a National Historic Site, in Flat Rock, North Carolina (presently closed to tours due to Covid). It looks like a beautifully persevered CJ-6.

From this page which has some beautiful photos of Carl’s estate: https://lavilo.com/travel-book/carl-sandburg-home

According to a 2016 comment on Pinterest, “This 1962 Willys Jeep was a gift to Carl Sandburg for his help in writing the script for the movie The Greatest Story Ever Told. It is on display in what was once the Goat Dairy building at Connemara, his home and farm for the latter years of his life in Flat Rock, NC.”

1947 Photo of Nita Electric “House Jeep”

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Wood bodies

Steve spotted this photo from the University of Kentucky’s archives. It shows a modified MB/GPW with a ‘house’ over it for weather protection.  I assume the owner of the jeep was also the owner of Nita Electric. The image below shows only the jeep; you can view the full photo here.

Someone spent took some care to do a nice refurb of this jeep. The bolt details on the rims and frame look really good.
