here to see the entire brochure! So this brochure ends the story of what I can surmise to be the ongoing love affair of one mystery man or woman who lived in Texas in the Corpus Christi area from roughly 1945 to 1975 with a business once known as Myer’s Feed And Seed nearby. If anyone can provide any further clues to this please let me know at email@example.com. I hope that you too have enjoyed this piece of history and that it broadens your appreciation of the rich history and legacy of the mighty jeep!

February page we had a different shot from the same series of photos that I picked up showing the plucky 2A towing a car with the Canfield logo clearly printed on the side. WD-20 was a Dodge pickup model built from about 1939 through the post-war years based on the Power Wagon with the WC the 1/2 ton and the WD, the 1 ton model. I was curious if Canfield were still around and what I found next in my search was quite curious. It seems that Canfield entered a governmental contract some twenty years later in the summer of 1964 for a wrecker attachment for the Dodge W300 Power Wagon. I found this article through a random Google search on the U.S. Government Accountability Office in which Canfield had filed a complaint over the bids. What was most interesting is the mention of an amendment of the invitation for light wrecker equipment for Jeeps. I love it when history sorta starts fitting together. Originally incorporated in 1946 I cannot find any other further info for the Canfield Company. Anyone out there have further info? Contact me @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you do! Come back next week and we’ll continue the series of brochures found from Texas and remember that you can still order the 2012 calendar here. It’s not too late to enjoy 17 all new photos of the classic jeep through the year and browse through many more of our jeep related tees, caps, mugs and much more!
