Todd Paisley has identified four versions of a design used for Willys-Overland parts boxes, with line drawings of "America's Most Useful Vehicles" in white on a blue background. These boxes were apparently printed circa 1953-54 when the CJ-3B was the latest Universal Jeep, since the model is featured prominently.
We're wondering if there are any other similar boxes with other Jeep models. We haven't run across any others yet, but we did see Willys-Overland Dripless Penetrating Oil (30K JPEG) in a can with a similar design (see also the back, 30K JPEG.)
The 3B is seen here in open-top and canvas-top configurations, pulling a plow and an unusual trailer, and as a fire engine. Also included on these four boxes are a Willys station wagon, a Jeepster, and the 4x4 truck in several configurations.
Question: Are there any other versions of this box design, with different models illustrated? If so, we'd be interested to hear, and perhaps add a scan here.
Another question: What exactly is that trailer seen above, which appears to be some kind of tank with a hose attached?
Thanks to Todd Paisley for scanning the boxes. -- Derek Redmond
