for those of you who have not seen some of these, i compiled some Jeep films that are available on youtube. combined with reading Fred Coldwell's excellent book Preproduction Civilian Jeeps, you can get an interesting picture about the roots of CJ-2A's. the Universal Jeep films interestingly coincide with Fred's book and you can see film footage of some of the images reproduced in his book.

The Universal Jeep part 1

The Universal Jeep part 2

The Universal Jeep part 3

yup. there is some repetition, but not too much. turn up the youtube speed to 1.5 times and you can watch more faster!

Thanks for posting the list.  I've been looking for a copy of "Workhorses of Industry", the companion film of "Workhorses of the Farm".  The latter is available on DVD, but it is an edited version.  I have copies of the scripts of the films and have plans to write more about these films and what Willys was doing to promote the Jeep.

While not produced by Willys, I'd recommend the film about the Monroe hydraulic lift.  I believe it is one of the best Jeep ads ever produced.

thanks Ihfarmbt! how did i manage to forget that? i edited it into the list.

Revolution In Pleasantville is a fascinating look at a time past. It really gives one a feel of "America" (for some) at a unique period in time. many of us have a longing for days gone by and this shows why.
