Jeep Truck Cargo-Personnel Carrier Brochures on eBay

UPDATE II: It appears there were two models of the Cargo-Personnel Carrier. This brochure shows that the Willys Export Company was offering this no-door Cargo-Personnel Carrier internationally (no mention of “Willys Motors” on the end of the last page of the brochure (but the bottom brochure’s last page shows both names).  Here are the brochures’ cover pages side by side:

1950s There’s a Jeep for Your Job Video

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

UPDATE: For some reason this video is making the rounds on FB, BAT and/or other places, as several folks shared this on email with me. This video has been around a while. So, I figured I’d repost it.

Original Post March 2016: Listed as a 1940s promotional film, the inclusion of CJ-5s and the exclusion of DJs and FCs suggests to me it was created in 1955. There’s an extended look at a cargo personnel carrier near the end of the video There are also a variety of specialized equipment and hardtops shown.

Cargo & Personnel Carrier Ad **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Old Images, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Was on eBay.

For some reason the Willys Export company advertised the Cargo & Personnel Carrier in a German Magazine. Seller lists this as a 1950 magazine. Given the early grille, this may well be the case. This is really an interesting piece.

“Willys Overland Export Co. Universal Jeep + Dorndorf – Orig. Anzeigen von 1950. Original Seite aus einem alten Magazine.”

Willys Cargo-Personnel Carrier Project

• CATEGORIES: Features, Other 4x4s, Willys Trucks • TAGS: .

A rare Willys Cargo-Personnel Carrier is about to undergo a restoration by the Ione Parlor of the Native Sons of the Golden West. This one is in pretty rough shape and sports the 6-226 Hurricane Motor. However, the running gear had already been gone through.

Information and specs beyond the brochure are difficult to find. Even good photos of them are rare. If anyone has any additional information on these, email Robert at buckydodle@yahoo.com.

Below are some pics of the jeep:
