“Willys frame with GPW axles, Ford GPW tub, postwar engine hot tanked and such with some machine work done ready to rebuild, and a T-90 Transmission with transfer case. Grille and fenders as well. Needs alot of work and is a project obviously. The frame tag was missing when I got it but the frame was stamped and matches the Montana title. Worst parts of the frame are shown in the pictures. Looks like they put a rear bumper on the front. Pictures should show enough details for ya. The T-90 I know nothing about except it came with another Jeep I bought. Seems to be complete with transfer case and emergency brake. What you see in the pictures is what you get. Thanks for looking. Located near Milton, FL right off I-10.”

UPDATE: Price dropped to $3200.

(06/18/2019) This body has some odd passenger side damage. Maybe the front of the body is VEC and the back is WWII? The passenger side seam is the reason I’m wondering if that’s the case.

Africa U.S.A. and Jeeps

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine, Old Images, Postcards

There’s a post card of a jeep train from the Jungletown area of Africa USA on eBay. Also on this post, I’ve aggregated all the Africa USA images.

View all the information on eBay

africa-usa-jeep-train-postcard

==============

From 2015: Africa USA, was part of a theme-park movement in the late 1950s that included New York’s Freedomland, Disneyland, Wisconsin’s Fort Dells, and others. By 1959, these parks were collectively generating revenue of $2 billion.

There is a feature article about these parks in the August 1, 1960, issue of Life Magazine. The picture below is from that article. You can take a ‘virtual’ jeep-train tour of Africa USA here (don’t expect much)

This article appeared in the December 1955 issue of Willys News. That’s the jeep train behind the animals.

Don Pratt Jeep Tours

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Postcards • TAGS: .

UPDATE: I’ve combined various Don Pratt posts into this single post. One set of postcard photos has been updated from poor quality ebay photos to scans of the actual card. Thanks go to Chris for buying and sending it to me earlier this month!

According to this Pink Jeep Tour site, Pink Jeep Tours is the oldest continuously operating Jeep Tour Company in the United States. It was started in 1958 by a Sedona Realtor named Don Pratt, who would drive clients to see homes at Broken Arrow Estates. The Broken Arrow tour is the original Jeep tour and is still today the most popular tour in Sedona.Why did he make the jeeps pink? Mr. Pratt got the idea while visiting the Royal Hawaiian Hotel on Waikiki Beach, where everything was pink.

But, that’s only part of the story. In her book Echoes of Sedona Past, Mary Lou Keller explains how her and her husband cleared the first trail and how, when Glenn Keller decided not to open a jeep tour business, their friend Don Pratt asked if he could do it instead. Mrs. Keller covers the story in five pages of her book available to read on Google.The book also includes the image below of Mary Lou Keller with her do Pico in her (probably) 1946 CJ-2A:

This 1960s(?) postcard pictures Don Pratt’s tour jeeps at Oak Creek Canyon out of Sedona, AZ. This is the one Chris bought me.
