Dec 1969 Jeep Family Brochure from Kaiser Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

Maury let me know that scans of a 1969 Jeep family brochure (Form 69-12) was posted to earlycj5.com page. There are three particularly interesting things to me about this brochure. Somehow, I never picked up a copy, so I found one on eBay.

1) The red CJ-5 shown with a couple “racing” it is a rare 462 model, perhaps it’s only appearance in a jeep-family-brochure;
2) the brochure doesn’t mentioned the model in the brochure; and
3) this jeep must have been part of a photo shoot (probably not really racing), because this brochure shows two photos of the same shoot and the 2018/2019 Dispatcher Magazine’s article on the 462 shows a third pic of the same jeep and couple.

Before the brochure, I’ll included the Dispatcher Magazine image:

“Picked up this 1962 willys CJ6 Jeep over the Summer. For a number of reasons, this is a project I am unable to pursue. Odometer shows 8k, probably rolled over once. Has some rust and usuual jeep rot, but in pretty good shape considering. Jeep came from an airplane mechanic and appears to have a good base for a restoration. I was excited to see an original hard top, which I believe are pretty hard to come by. I’ve left the jeep in essentially the same condition I got it, which includes most of the old dudes tools and nik knacks. I think $4000 is a fair price, but feel free to shoot me an offer”1962-cj6-fortcollins-co6

“A 1957 Willys Jeep Flatbed with a flathead Super Hurricane six-cylinder is what’s offered here, for sale at no reserve. The New Hampshire-based vintage 4×4 was reportedly painted in 2020 and has a “rust-free” body, while the L-head Super Hurricane engine is said to be original, but in need of a tune-up. There are 65,754 miles on the odometer, but the seller notes it was non-functional for a while. The truck’s true mileage is unknown. “It’s time to pass this truck on to another old Jeep lover,” says the seller.”

Sportif, Dispatcher, Beach Comber, Commuter & DJ-6A

• CATEGORIES: DJ-3A, Features

UPDATE: Roger Jordan posted this rare photo of a DJ-6A concept vehicle on Facebook. It reminds me of the Dispatcher-100 and Sportif models, so I’ll add it to this page

sportif-and-dispatcher-concept-possibly-fb-pic

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

Originally posted April 8, 2019:

As most folks know, Brooks Stevens was instrumental in numerous production and concept car designs. One of the lesser known projects was, apparently, an offshoot of the DJ-3A 2WD line. There are four documented designs, two of which became concept vehicles.

sportif-and-dispatcher-concept-colored

The Dispatcher and the Sportif concept cars.

  1. The Sportif: This DJ-3A-like vehicle appears to use the DJ-3A convertible windshield and hood, to which some stylistic designs have been added. There are a variety of undated pics at the Milwaukee Art Museum’s website which tags the images as being prototypes for the Canadian Market. A March-April 1995 Willys World article dates the pics to 1959. Brook Stevens is pictured in both images.

    1959-brook-stevens-sportif

    Link to Milwaukee Art Museum

  2. The Dispatcher (aka Dispatcher Sportif) and Dispatcher 100: The Milwaukee Art Museum labels this simply as the Dispatcher, but other placed identify this as the Dispatcher 100 or Dispatcher Sportif. You can see all the pics at the Museum’s website.

    Dispatcher 100: Derek Redmond published a slightly different version of this concept at the CJ-3B page. It’s titled the Dispatcher 100 (has an insignia with the name on the passenger door) and it may represent a slight update or next evolution of the “Dispatcher” above. The cover on the passenger side cowl suggests this might have been made from the later model DJ-3A body (which used the hole for a heater vent).
    Dispatcher-100-concept-jeep-cj3b-page

  3. Jeep Beach Comber: This fanciful 2WD vehicle looks inspired by the DJ-3A Surrey, one designs for beaches and vacation rentals. There’s only one image of it at the Milwaukee Art Museum. This appears to use the later model Willys hubcaps seen on the Surreys.
    1960-02-02-jeep-beach-comber-concept-illustrtion
  4. Jeep Commuter 100: It looks to be a roomier version of the other vehicles, but with a top that allowed lots of visibility. There’s only one image of it at the Milwaukee Art Museum. This jeep also appears to use the later model Willys hubcaps seen on the Surreys. I can attest that the low windshield and low soft top (if that is a soft top) would have made it difficult for 6-footers like me to climb back into the rear seat.
