"The Jeep in Industry" Catalogue

This edition of Willys-Overland's special equipment catalogue (c.1947) had an amazing range of aftermarket accessories already available for the CJ-2A. It included eight pages on firefighting equipment.

CJ-2A "Jeep Fire Truck" Brochure

This early 6-page folder (circa early 1947) was apparently designed as a mailer, but was quite large (8.5x11", folding out to 8.5x33"). A page on the 200-gallon water trailer stated it could provide 10 minutes of water or foam.

"CJ-3B Fire Engine" Export Brochure

(Form SX104-3)

This Willys-Overland Export Corp. booklet scanned by Mark Ciaglia apparently pre-dates the domestic CJ-3B Jeep Fire Engine Brochure, and thus lacks much of the specialized information found there. But it has the usual bold design style of the Export Corp.
