(01/02/2018) It’s been rewired and fused have been added in the engine compartment.


“1945 U.S. Army Willys Jeep, possibly the most sought after vintage vehicle in America. This is one nicely restored example of WWII transportation. It looks good at a cruise in, car show, parade or Military Vehicle Collector’s events. It will not disappoint. 4 military tread tires with 95% tread and a spare with 80% tread all on 16” combat rims.Top was new in 2015 and the transmission was gone through in 2016 and is fitted with Warn hubs. Converted to 12 volt system and has an “OOgah horn installed. The tub has been powder coated and it has been garaged since the restoration. I am posting this for my brother Lee who was in the U. S. 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. I have the same vehicle and it trailers like there is nothing behind you due to the low weight.”

Looks solid. Lacks combat rims. Not all the accessories are included.

Some of the accessories shown included. What IS NOT included is the M1919 and the accessories that go with it. However the gun mount pedestal will remain since it is bolted to the vehicle.

I put in new universal joints in the front end last year but it does need an oil seal replacement. Please feel free to ask any questions, thanks.”
