1941 Look Magazine Article “Hell on Wheels”

• CATEGORIES: Bantam-FordGP-WillysMA-EarlyJPs, Features, Magazine

The August 26, 1941, issue of Look Magazine included this large photo of a Bantam BRC-40. The caption, presumably written by the author of the article, Henry McLemorehistor reads:

THIS MOBILE CHIROPRACTOR I am driving is a half-ton reconnaissance car known to the unit as a Peep or Bo-Peep. It’ll go 60 mph, packs two machine guns, a crew of four. It will take you anywhere, provided you can hang on–actually covering worse terrain than a tank. As soon as the Army has enough Peeps, they will replace motorcycles as dispatch and reconnaissance vehicles. Like all armored-division vehicles, the Peep has four-wheel drive and handles as easily as the highest priced pleasure car. The difference is that you sit on a thin cushion over a steel seat and buckle yourself down with an airplane safety belt. “

Photo of a Fire Department Jeep in Parade on eBay

This looks to be a press photo of a fire department jeep from the city of Columbus, Georgia, that’s been all dressed up for a memorial or a parade. The coffin seems to be more a statement than a solemn tribute. The jeep looks to be an MB or GPW.

Evans Clearfloat Lighter w/ CJ-5 **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: .

UPDATE: This sold for $66 plus shipping of $15.

This unique lighter with an entombed jeep model has already reached $26 (+$15 shipping) with four days to go.

dudley-cj5-lighter

“What a great piece. During the 1950s and 1960s Evans teamed up with the Clearfloat Company to create various see through lighters with miniaturized items “floating” inside. This one has a miniaturized figural Willys Jeep.

The lighter is also marked “Dudley”. Likely, this piece was a gift from the Jeep Dealer of Dudley, Massachusetts to their Jeep Customers. If anyone knows more about them, please drop me a line and I will add it to the info.

The Jeep inside this great decor piece is superbly detailed. I have pictured it from all angles for your inspection. Since the craftsmen at Clearfloat made these lighters by hand, there are no two of them alike. This special piece is in excellent condition with a snappy action. The flint tube is clear and a it has a great spark from the new flint that was installed for your convenience.

Here is your chance to add this Good-Looking Evans Clearfloat Décor Table Lighter to your collection – Thanks for looking.”

1952 M-38 Portland, OR $8000

• CATEGORIES: M-38

The seller has lots to say, though some of it is inaccurate (1952 was not the last of the L-134 engines for example). The seller claims the M-38 has heavier duty running gear and frame; while the frame does have additional boxing and supports, the running gear is the same as the CJ-3A (More on the similarities/differences here). The sellers also states it is an “unrestored survivor”, yet then describes the changes the previous owners have made and the changes the seller himself also made.

1952 Willys M38 Military ‘Universal Jeep’

Great Runner/Driver UnRestored Survivor, DUAL PTO, Winch and ZERO RUST!

THIS LISTING IS DETAILED TO SHARE THE IMPORTANT INFORMATION THAT A SERIOUS BUYER/TRADER WOULD WANT TO KNOW! PLEASE READ IT ALL BEFORE CONTACTING ME!

I’m considering letting go of my 1952 Willys M38, a.k.a. an MC, the original 4×4 American warhorse utility vechicle. This is a special survivor with important recent maintenance and upgrades.

VIDEO WALKAROUND HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkDBhzqPZeE

First off this is a real m38 Military jeep — so heavier duty frame and running gear than the contemporary Civilian model, the CJ-3A. 1952 is the last year of the “Flat Fender” Military Jeeps (much cooler than the M38a1), and also the last and best year of the Willys L134 “Go Devil” engine. I got it from the family which bought it at Government auction in the early 60s. It saw only very light use as a hunting vehicle for over 50 years and was literally kept in a barn and as a result is very very original and 100% RUST FREE ORIGINAL METAL.

It’s probably seized up I haven’t touched it in years but it shouldn’t take much to get her up and running. the body was brand-new ship to me from the Philippines. It has a 4in lift and I think it’s run in 32 or 33 inch tires. I really hate to see it go but could use the money for other projects.
