“1944 restored Willy’s Army Jeep. My late WWII Veteran Father purchased this restored Jeep in 2000 from a Gentleman in Louisville KY. My Dad drove one like it in Japan during the War. He used this one for local parades.
He had a stroke in 2008, and I became his driver for the events. He just passed this April at 94. It needs to go to someone who can appreciate it and use it like my Father did. Selling to help settle his Estate.

New Tires put on 10/2017 Coker 6.00-16 Military Tires
All oils changed two years ago. We only did about two Parades a year, dependent on the weather. Last parade we did was in 2019.

Everything works at it should. Very low maintenance vehicle.

Was stored in my climate controlled drive-in basement.”
