October 1958 Jeep News

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This eight-page October 1958 issue of Jeep News got buried in my files, but better late than never.

Page one share some dealer news about the Maverick tie-in, along with some thoughts on the surge in third quarter sales. Page two has a full page article about the FC-170 and its advantages. Page three describes how James Garner day in Oklahoma was cleverly co-opted by a savvy jeep dealer president Mead Norton, who made sure Garner, visiting broadcast reps, and the press were ferried from the airport and along the parade route with jeeps.

The Economy Delivery Van makes a surprise, huge showing on pages four and five with articles and photos. That’s possibly the most visibility that model ever received. Page six gives a shout-out to Clark County Sheriff’s Jeep Posse out of Las Vegas, Nevada. Page seven is all Maverick Bros. Page eight describes the 1958 dress rehearsal jeep caravan, used to test the roads and generate thoughts on the best routes for the 1959 Colorado Centennial event, which was expected to attract more than 1000 entrants. The routes were documented in this brochure.1958-10-jeep-news1 1958-10-jeep-news2 1958-10-jeep-news3 1958-10-jeep-news4 1958-10-jeep-news5

March 1961 Jeep Service and Parts News

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features, Service Bulletin • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This March 1961 issue of Jeep Service and Parts News is, once again, four pages. Page three contains a couple items I found interesting. In the not-all-fc170-hubs-are-the-same department, in 1961 Willys Motors introduced reinforced drums. I’m unclear on ‘how much more’ these are reinforced. Also on page three we can pinpoint the introduction of the trim tag to early 1961. The article also mentions more information was included on Service Bulletin 505, which I’ve included at the bottom.

Side note: I’ve collected a near-complete folder of Service Bulletins along with a folder of Fleet Service Bulletins, which are close, but not quite the same. They are sitting in a pile awaiting pics and commentary at some point.

The March 23, 1957, issue of the Saturday Evening Post featured a jeep on the cover. John Clymer illustrated the cover. He was born not far from me in Ellensburg, Washington, where (to my surprise) the Clymer museum features his art. Guess I’ll have to stop in there and check it out sometime.

“Plumb” Tired

• CATEGORIES: News This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

No updates today …. Sunday evening we were watching some TV when our sewer alarm sounded from our crawl space … oh joy of joys! After some investigation, I figured out that it wasn’t the sewer that was the problem, but rather the alarm box was being triggered due to excessive moisture from a pipe that was leaking.

Lovely …. cue the water-shut-off-dry-camping-at-home protocol, something we just did last month when the well shut down during the cold spell. Rather than tackle the issue Sunday night, I decided to run the shop van overnight in the crawl space to evaporate some water and address the problem on Monday.

Sunday night I didn’t sleep well, so when I got up early Monday morning, I made some coffee and sat on my Mother-in-laws white couch, which she babied to the point that almost no one could sit on it while she is alive . Now that she has passed, we own the couch and we often drink coffee and do puzzles on our phones while sitting on it in the morning. Unfortunately, Monday morning’s coffee ritual was overturned when my phone cord caught my coffee cup, tipping the cup and splashing a full cup of coffee all over the couch. UGH! Great start to the day!

After a morning of arduous cleaning, I tackled the leak. I will wind up this story, as I am falling asleep writing it! I was able to get the copper pipe removed, replacing it with pex. The pex should be better able to handle our softened water and, now on our third leak in a year’s-time, we think this 20+ year old copper may need to be fully replaced, certainly the hot water recycler will need it, as we have had two leaks on that line.

Once I got that leak fixed, I turned on the water and, success, no leak from that pipe.

However, as I was packing up my tools, Ann discovered that the laundry hookups valve was leaking (a single valve closes both the hot and the cold), dripping water within the wall. Fortunately, because I had removed the drywall, we could see the leak real-time. Hopefully, I can get that fixed tomorrow!

And that is my sad tale of woe from the last few days!

So, no Tuesday updates. Not sure if there will be any Wednesday or not.

1964 Jeep News Volume 10 Number 2

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

This is the eight-page issue of Jeep News Volume 10 Number 2. Page one shows an image from the 1964 Chicago Auto Show and I’m surprised I don’t see any FCs or DJs, which suggests (to me) KJC was already planning to phase them out. This display strongly suggests that the future was the Gladiator and Wagoneer’s. Also on page one is the announcement of the purchase of Studebaker’s Defense Products Division, which I didn’t know Kaiser used to springboard into the large military vehicle contracts. Page two continues the Chicago Auto Show story.

There’s an interesting photo on page three showing a CJ-5 surrounded by Tonka toys at a Woolworth store. That sure looks like it was a cool display! Page four shows a pic of a custom hunting ‘”jeep” produced by Dick M. Campbell Motors ‘Jeep’ dealership out of Alice, Texas. I’d like to know more about these creations and how many they produced.

Page five highlights another Jeep movie promotion, this time with Rock Hudson and his movie “Man’s Favorite Sport?“. The movie naturally includes a Wagoneer. Pages six and seven include photos from across the US and a few from international locals. Page eight highlights Ken and Fran Jones, who love their Wagoneer and even used it on a ninety mile an hour chase after a stolen car, successfully capturing the thief.

1960 August/September Jeep Service and Parts News

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

The four-page issue of the 1960 August/September Jeep Service and Parts News issue contains an ominous note at the bottom of the last page. The article noted that the military released some surplus M-38 fan blades, but warned that the fan blade should not be used with any other Jeep vehicle, as the results will be “unsatisfactory”. This got me wondering just how different these blades were? The fact that I have a remanufactured M-38 engine in my DJ-3A made me wonder if I also have an M-38 blade. Given my temp gauge doesn’t work all that well in the DJ, I doubt I will be any more unsatisfied with the temp than I already am!
