“This jeep is titled and registered (historic) in the state of NJ as a 1945 Willys MB. It was originally made by Willys for the US Army during WWII. Sensible, conservative frame-off resto in 2012. Starts, runs, shifts, steers, and stops great. No excessive smoke or leaks, no popping out of gear, and no rust. Primed with Rustoleum red oxide and finished with three coats of Gillespie 319. New repro (Beachwood OD 3) canvas seats. This is not a trailer queen. Turns heads in parades, at car shows, or as a daily runabout from April to October. Stored in heated garage on trickle charger every winter. If you’re a military buff, this jeep is ready for the hood and bumper stencils of your choice. If you just like old jeeps, this is the very first production model of the vehicle Enzo Ferrari called “America’s only true sports car.”

    Very cool. Just when I was going to critique (nit pic) the details, I noticed the incredible license plate… and now I’m speechless: “GI 45”. WOW… just pay the man, as long as the plate is included 🙂
