Boyer Jeep Fire Engine
Production List


Boyer CJ-2AThis delivery list found by the late Rodger Birchfield shows 135 Jeep conversions built by Boyer Fire Apparatus of Logansport, Indiana, between 1945 and 1950.

Many of the Boyer units were sold through Willys dealers across the U.S. In addition, the list below indicates that about 35 Boyers were exported by Willys, and Rodger found documentation indicating that 20 of those went to the Brazilian military (see Boyer CJ-2A Fire Engine in Brazil).

If you have any more information on any of the Jeeps below, or you know of a Boyer Willys whose Boyer serial number (on the dash) does not appear here, please submit the number with any information about where the Jeep may have been delivered, to redmond@cj3b.info.

Note: There are two Jeeps listed above as J-102, delivered to Cincinatti OH and Newark NJ. I'm not sure where that mistake came from, but one of those Jeeps went to a fire department in Crittenden KY (south across the Ohio River from Cincinnati). When they sold it as surplus circa 1976 they removed the plumbing and equipment. In 1992 the CJ-2A was purchased by Gary Rogers in Virginia. As of 2017 Gary has done a frame off restoration (210K JPEG) and the odometer shows 3302 miles.

Boyer CJ-3A
Note: Although the Boyer conversions are mostly 1947 CJ-2A's, there are several CJ-3A's among the later conversions, including a couple delivered for use at the Willys factory (near the bottom of the list).

The CJ-3A in the photo is apparently ready for delivery as Oak Spring No.1. It carries 15-gallon soda-acid extinguishers in the cab and on the optional tank trailer, as well as carbon-tet extinguishers behind the driver's seat.
