Holy Toledo! Calendar for 2024


Front cover If you haven't ordered your 2024 calendar from Norris-Banonis yet, you should move quickly. Christián Podlesker's Transport Yellow CJ-3B on the cover will make this edition sell fast. And if you aren't familiar with Christián's perfectly restored high hood in Mexico, see Malaria Campaign Jeep on CJ3B.info for all the details.

Another Jeep in the new calendar which will be familiar to readers of CJ3B.info is the 1945 CJ-2A Jeep Fire Truck from Berkey, Ohio, the oldest factory fire Jeep still in existence.

One of the Willys trucks in the calendar was also originally a fire truck. Among the Station Wagons this year is a Parkway conversion photographed at a great location, the Frank Lloyd Wright Texaco station in Minnesota. And quarter-tons include a 1952 M38 and a 1966 CJ-5 dually backhoe.

November There are some other very rare Jeeps in the batting order too, including the unique Ford Pygmy GP 1940 prototype, a 1985 CJ-10A aircraft tug, and the export-only version (120K JPEG) of the Willys Cargo-Personnel Carrier. This particular 1950 CPC was delivered to the Danish Army as a radio truck, apparently ordered with a closed cab not typically found on the CPCs.

The Cargo-Personnel Carrier is not the only international Jeep in the calendar. I like to think Norris-Banonis noted my request last year for more overseas models, and for February 2024 they found a 1954 Hotchkiss M201. This clone of the Willys MB was built in France and now resides in Germany.

All in all, the photography this year is excellent and the text and bonus illustrations each month are interesting, informative and beautifully laid out. Congratulations to Norris-Banonis for maintaining the high quality of their calendar.
