Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1945 Willys Navy Jeep. The Willys Model MB 1/4 ton 4x4 needs little introduction -- rushed into production by the US government for use in World War II, thousands were produced and they were praised for their reliability and ruggedness.
This example was donated to the Boy Scouts after the war and then moved into private hands -- it has been in the same family for decades. An older basic restoration included a repaint in dark grey metallic which is in keeping with the grey paint that it would have worn in the Navy. It has also been converted to 12 volt electricals with an alternator and electric fuel pump.
It has been used around the farm, for short drives to town and in parades for most of its life. It has not seen much use since the owner's passing in 2015 but when we inspected it in the barn we had it running within minutes. We have subsequently installed a new battery and fresh gas. It runs like a top and is fun to drive... Enzo Ferrari famously said, "The Jeep is America's only real sports car.”
This Willys has some patina about it -- some chips in the paint and some wear on the upholstery -- but it's a solid truck that always gets compliments and thumbs up. It would be the perfect addition to any collection -- not too nice to take off road or use around the farm but nice enough to use in a parade or for urban exploring.
