“This Is the Genuine article and a true world war two Jeep. This jeep was on the cover of the 2016 kaiser Willys Jeep parts magazine. This World War II jeep is a four-cylinder, three speed, four-wheel-drive, 6 V all-around fun driving machine. This piece of history starts right up and can run all day long.

Navy SeaBees in Viet Nam thus the Navy lettering. The photos in this post are photos of photos so they are not the best. Questions and contact can best be made directly to him with the phone number provided in this post. Neither he or I do the text thing. It is located near Payette Idaho and is being sold as is where is with no guarantees but you can start it up and drive it home if you wish.

Seller’s Description:
Offered here is a very sharp 1942 Willys Jeep which is quite a find. With a prior restoration, the vehicle shows very well. Power comes by a rebuilt 4-cylinder engine matched to a rebuilt transmission and transfer case. Set-up as a tow vehicle including a built-in tow light system, it would look great behind a motor coach as a grocery-getter and cruiser or expressly for 4-wheel touring.
