    Willys Overland Export Corporation was a separate corporation from Willys Motors designed to handle all the Willys vehicles that were built either in the USA or by other subsidies in other countries and shipped to locations around the world. Probably had something to do with international law and being able to produce or export vehicles to other countries.
    The early DJ3A Galas/Surreys that went to Hawaii in 1959, even though Hawaii was a new state, were sent through Willys Overland Export Corporation, as were the Surreys sent to Mexico, the Virgin Islands and other tropical areas. Willys Overland Export Corporation may have ended with the purchase of Willys Motors by AMC.
