“It is a very correct Nut and Bolt Restoration. The Restoration is now several years ago and it shows some wear here and there. It has a Snorkel and a high Exhaust System and all Components are there for fording. It comes with a Military Radio with a tall Antenna as well as a Canvas Top, side Covers and Doors. Though the Doors show some age, they could be original. Further it has a Siren, Primer Pump, Heater, (not installed), Fire Extinguisher, Grease Pump, Shovel and Axe, as well as a Spare Tire and a 5 Gal. Jerry Can. The Willys starts right away and drives fine. It has the correct 24 Volt System. The Body is original, not a reproduction, it is very straight, solid and without any patch Panels. The Engine, Transmission and Transfer Case are in very good condition. The Brakes have been serviced recently and the Brake Fluid has been replaced with Silicone Fluid. It has been meticulously restored several years ago and now shows signs of usage. It would be a great addition for a Car Collector or Military Memorabilia Collector. Please contact me if you have more Questions or want some more pictures. Point of Sale is Daytona Beach. I can assist in shipping. Worldwide!”
