Anyone know the history of this unusual Willys sign. I know I’ve seen it floating around before, but can’t remember where. Was it ever an actual sign?

1965 Flattie Rio Rancho, NM $15,000

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: , , , , .

Chad spotted another California modified Flattie. It’s nearly identify to three other jeeps (same body updates, same dash, same custom windshield, same Muller custom top, etc). The differences are slightly, such as this one has a black rear bumper rather than a chrome one like the others.

  1. For example, Here’s one that was also listed as a 1965. They have different valve covers and different rear bumpers, but pretty much everything else looks the same: http://www.ewillys.com/2015/06/10/1965-custom-flattie-las-vegas-nv-ebay/#more-113889
  2. Here’s another (this has a 302 and chrome bumper): http://www.ewillys.com/2014/08/25/1948-cj-2a-kerman-ca-6950/
  3. And another (black seats): http://www.ewillys.com/2012/03/13/1948-cj-2a-clovis-ca-ebay/
  4. This has more differences than the others, but similar look: http://www.ewillys.com/2017/08/17/1948-cj-2a-fort-mohave-az-16500/

Owned by the same family since 1946.

https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/cto/d/1945-ford-jeep-gpw-wwii/6564093186.html

“Super original WW2 US Army Jeep that has been owned by the same family since released from the government in 1946. The original owner used it on his ranch, after he passed away it was stored for the past 25 years in the garage. Fresh out of retirement, the engine has been rebuilt along with a new wiring harness, rebuilt radiator, completely rebuilt braking system, new exhaust system, new gas tank, new battery, new clutch, front seat cushions, new Firestone military tires and tubes with the original combat wheels. The transmission functions well and shifts very smoothly. I don’t think it would be possible to find a more original and well running and driving Jeep.”

“Rare 1965 Tucker Snow Cat. Military Jeep running gear. This is beyond cool. It will run and drive. Smokes a bit needs restoration. But it’s original and what a eye catcher. If I don’t sell it? I will rebuild it myself. But I have so many projects going I’m willing to let someone else have this fun project? I put new battery in and fresh gas 3/12/18 fired right up. Drove without issue and steered and parked as expected. This thing is ready to drive onto your trailer. Buy it before I change my mind! Calf. title ser number 1651050. Has Warn winch.”

“For Sale: 1942 Ford GPW Open Jeep. This is a bonified WWII Veteran. DOM in ’42, right on the data plate. Data plates are all legible, serial numbers intact. I do not have a title for the jeep. Gun turret mount is on the frame, and part of the tub as designed. This is an original Ford GPW.

The Bad: This jeep was, unfortunately, modified for a 283 V-8 motor. The front cross member has been cut, the front grill internal shroud has been cut and the frame has been drilled in several locations for new motor mount locations. The GPW tub, (embossed tool bin lids & data plates) has been cut at the fire wall for the V-8. You’ve got sheet metal work there at those locations. The drive line is gone down to the driveshafts. I removed the V-8, T-90 and T3 transfer case that was in it. The windshield frame is long gone as are the front seats, rear seat, gas tank and original gauges.
