Quite arguably the most recognized utility vehicle on the planet, the Jeep started life as a war machine that literally help win WWII with its lightweight, 4-Wheel drive design that was easy to assemble and reassemble on in the field. It took many different agencies, designers and manufacturers to make this highly sought after vehicle not only capable but possible to build but to get it deployed in to hands of soldiers over seas. Manufacturers were given just 49 days to submit their first prototype and be able to deliver 70 prototypes for testing in 75 days. Many of us know the history and some more than others, however this vehicle is special as it was built by a husband for his wife after she battled breast cancer and won. He had a highly detailed restoration on this Jeep completed. One thing to note is that it says “1942 Willys” on the side of the hood, however it is actually a 1944. This was a slight mistake done at time of restoration. This particular Willys is in fantastic condition both physically and mechanically. This Jeep has been driven and it starts, shifts, brakes and goes down the road as you would imagine with all the lights in working order as well. This would be a great piece to add to your collection of eclectic autos, use in parades or do a repaint back to original as there would be no metal work to complete. This is a turn key Willys that is looking for a new home.
