UPDATE:  **SOLD** Was on eBay.

(06/14/2012) Well, this has an unusual history.

“This Jeep Willys Overland MB 1946 was purchased from an Italian Army Surplus Sale during the sixties, subsequently the car was restored for my late Mother by Carrozzeria Pavesi Rolls Royce and Bentley, Milano, Italy. The restoration was focused on making a glamorous car with all original parts, just the roof and side panels are a work of art…. The dashboard was fitted with a wood panel to increase the good look and the original plates where fitted to the glove compartment box door instead of the engine compartment. The car is fitted with a Webasto gas heather for cold climates. The car was stationed in St. Tropez, France for many years and then was sent to the Swiss Alps in St. Moritz where it stayed until I imported it into the US in 2003. It is a great car, all systems works very good, steering, brakes, engine, etc… it would make a great addition to a Summer/Winter Home, it is great on snow, beats any modern car…. The attention to details in this car is fabulous.”

    The way the seat back upholstery (on the front seats) covers the upper half of the metal back rest is a classy detail, I might copy that idea on my Willys.

    Fancy dash and top, on a fancy old school money kind of way, Jeep. Maybe the story is true?

    I really like it. It just has some subtle touches that are slightly different, but well done.

    Hey Dave, would it be proper for me to say that my jeep is stationed in my garage in Pennsylvania??

    Steve … Oh definitely … Perhaps stationed in a secret location known only to a few personnel.

    Or, ran when stationed.
