Great information!  When I was around 5, I went to work with Daddy, who worked in the OK oil fields.  It was such great fun for me!  I remember the smell of the canvas top and siding. Smile

This one has the serial number plate but you can't read it.

Cool pic. I wish it included the serial number plate. I saw the other photos that go with this one, and the fire wall doesn't have a serial number tag which indicates that it's a very early 45.

Here is a Time Life photo of a '45 captioned July 1945 showing interior details.

Those old Life Magazine photos were taken in my "backyard" along the old Anza Trail, and more specifically up Palm Canyon from Borrego Springs to Terwilliger (southeast of Anza) in Anza Borrego State Park.  Plug these coordinates into Google Maps: 33.42204, -116.4768.  They probably went up the Sage Road from Hemet to Highway 79 where Berg's Roadhouse was located.  I'm not sure you can still make the drive up or down Palm Canyon anymore.  I did it in the mid-1980s (up canyon in a Toyota TruckWink) and it was an adventure.  The 1949 trip was coming down canyon which is usually easier, but looks like they had fair amount of water running through the canyon, so there could have been some hairy washouts in a number of areas.

Some interesting photos of 2 different early '45s.  Photo quality isn't great, but good to see some details. All link to larger versions.

First one has a bumper weight:


This one has a capstan winch.  Compare this to Bill Oakes '45 at the beginning of this thread.  They look alike !

I found another news article in the April 1, 1948 Toledo Times. It talks about King Michael's visit to Willys-Overland. I did go to the microfilm for this article and the date was correct Wink

They did that to correct the lean. That one must have been assembled wrong-side-to. That's why it's been pulled off the lineBig%20smile.  BW

I think I see in the Parts List that there are different numbers for the left and right tires! Wink

That's cause there's more tire on one side. Big%20smile Wink
