Jeep Owners Club of New Zealand Hat Pin

• CATEGORIES: Features

I snagged this small “Jeep Owners Club of New Zealand” hat pin from eBay for cheap. Having biked around the South Island of New Zealand when I was 20 years old, I’ve always had a soft spot for the country. I lived off New Zealand meat pies and banana chocolate chip ice cream while there … Boy did they have great ice cream!

Cover of Colliers Magazine in 1946

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features, Magazine

UPDATE: I found an inexpensive issue of the February 2, 1946 Collier’s Magazine, so I scanned the cover. It has the Welcome Home Johnny sign celebrating’s soldiers homecoming as a farmer races his jeep down the road. I found no jeep related stuff on the inside.

1948 CJ-2A Schofield, WI $7200


This has a fiberglass tub and a rear gas tank with the filler in the middle of the back.

“Selling my 48 Willys jeep. It is an older restoration with fiberglass tub. Runs great and everything works. All gauges function and has an electric fuel pump to keep it running smooth. Fun toy to go anywhere this summer. Ride it like a sXs with the ability to go down any road. Only flaw is cracks in the glass.”

1948 CJ-2A Twin Falls, ID $9000


UPDATE: Still Available.

(03/26/21) To me, the jeep doesn’t look Fiesta Yellow, but it may just be the photos. The jeep looks solid.

“This is a 1948 CJ2A Willy’s Jeep in original color Fiesta yellow. It has the original “L” in line 4 cylinder engine with over drive and oil bath air cleaner. Still has 6 volt system and installed seat belts and turn signals. Top speed 35 mph with overdrive engaged, but it climbs like no other. Runs like a swiss clock and DOES NOT burn any oil. Items included; spare tire, tow bar and signal lights, cargo rack with tool box, spare tire mount and 2 jerry can mounts jerry cans not included. Also included is a fully enclosed canvas vinyal top with doors to include the bikini top in the pics. The oil pan does leak some but any vehicle that’s 73 years old does. Replacing the gasket is the fix.”

4 15″ Rims San Francisco, CA $FREE


Scramboleer Dan got these rims from a friend and is giving them away to anyone who can pick them up. One of the four rims is slightly different from the others (marked with a red line). Here’s what Dan wrote:

Here are the details: four 15″ yellow Jeep wheels, 4″ center bore, 4.5″ inside width, 5.5″ outside width.

I got them from a local Jeep buddy who is moving out of the area. The wheels have been sitting outside for years, but I scrubbed them with soap and water. These have what appears to be a rubberized yellow coating on them. Beneath that is a forest green. Free to anyone who can pick them up in San Francisco. Easy backyard access on a quiet street a few minutes from major freeways.

Here are two comments from OWF (can’t confirm as to their accuracy).

Comment 1: “These are the earlier version cj5 rims, pre ‘66. Still had the rivets. These have the smooth face and can not take the dog dish hub caps.”

Comment 2: “You have 3 of the later 50’s – 60’s CJ5 wheels and 1 early CJ 3A 3B CJ5 wheel. See the different shaped dog dish centers.”

Hope someone in the eWillys world can use them!

Morrison Snow Plow Brochure on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I bought one of this seller’s Morrison brochure. It’s in very good condition. It is unclear how many of these he has. I suspect it’s from the late 1940s, given it only features CJ-2As.

View all the information on ebay

“You are buying or bidding on a rare vintage early 1950’s “The Morrison-Built Rogers Sno-Dozer For Jeeps” brochure. This was originally sold as a plow and scraper and was from the late 40’s. They were later produced by the Morrison Railway Supply Corp. Buffalo, New York. This is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ opens twice to a 11″ x 8 1/2″. This is in excellent condition.(see pics)”

Mid-1960s Model CJ-5 Plastic Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Models, videos

UPDATE: This looks to have been an MPC model, as MPC created a variety of jeep-related models. One particular kit by MPC allowed for the creation of three different kinds of jeep: ! Hill Climbing Dune Buggy Jeep, A Stock Jeep, or a Service Station Jeep. Here’s an example of that model on eBay.

Here’s a better example of the service station CJ-5 model from Barney Goodwin:


And here is a 16 minute video on the history of the AMT model company (and explains how MPC formed). I found it interesting (no mention of jeeps):

Here’s another CJ-5 Service Station model that is labeled an MPC:


This model sold on eBay yesterday for $25. What I found interesting was the level of detail, from the Dauntless engine mounts, to the Canfield Push-Plate on the front, to the Meyer half-cab details.

1955 Koenig Road Service Brochures

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

UPDATE: This sold years ago on eBay, but I never posted all the pics I got from the auction. It is a good example of Koenig’s Wrecker and road service brochure. Along with tow packages, it includes helper springs, PTO add-ons, push-bumpers, and more. 

It is bulletin 155 (which likely means it was published in January of 1955) and then revised in April of 1955.
