Four Kaiser Era Ads
The period after Willys Overland in which Kaiser Industries took over was a fruitful one. It saw many innovations in the jeep lineup and a huge amount of diversity. It saw the Wagoneer, the precursor to the modern SUV, the 225 V-6 in a jeep, the reintroduction of the Jeepster and a move away from the emphasis of the jeep solely as a workhorse. In the 1960’s the jeep had its share of competitors as a recreational vehicle, but the jeep still stood for as the ads put it, “solid funpower!” Enjoy the ads today and look for new products in the This-Old-Jeep.com Zazzle marketplace later on today!
