101: Robert Blundon’s Willys CJ-5 Jeep
This jeep was purchased new by the South Berwick, Maine fire dept. It was purchased for $2714.25. They traded in a 1946 jeep and got $500.25 for the trade in…I guess someone said they had to get over $500.
The fire dept kept the back bumper off of the 1946 jeep and put it on this one for the brush fire brooms and to stand on. It has 16,000 original miles on it and the original paint job which was in excellent condition, because it was kept inside the heated fire house. It was equipped with 600 feet of hose and a maxim water pump for forest and brush fires. It came with a parts catalog from Montgomery Wards, jeep service news, original sales receipt and other original papers with advertisements.
