“(If I do put fluids in it and test drive it price will increase dramatically as it’s a driving project at that point)

MOTOR DOES RUN WELL! This is a real WW2 Willys MB. It is titled as a 46 Jeep. It is a project. It has a ford 200ci Straight 6 that starts and is turn key, but I have not driven it yet. It needs brakes redone and new tires first before being driveable. (Will include some used 31 inch tires) I’ve removed all the old 6v wiring and have it striped for you to start running your own. I was going to start chopping it all up to make a ratrod, but I figured I would give somebody the chance too bring it back to life before hand. I am open to cash offers, bring a trailer and come give it a good home.”

Starts and runs great! After WWII when the boys came home they wanted a Jeep like they had over seas. Here it is.

All new parts are from Kaiser Willys parts and accessories. Very few scratches and dents. The only rust is under the passenger seat in the built in tool box bottom that can catch and hold water.

If you are looking for a way restorable old Jeep this is a good way to go. If you call, please leave a message I don’t answer unknown numbers but will call you back. Please no lowballs or trades. And yes, the VIN is 27236!”

License built by Mitsubishi. 4 Cylinder diesel from the factory. Built for the Japanese army (and others) from the 1950’s until the late 1990’s.

Restoration project. Has sat for a number of years. Complete and original. Rust in the usual Jeep places (footwell). Frame is straight and solid. Motor currently does not run but turns over with compression…. Being a diesel I am sure it would run if you hooked it up to a fuel tank, not had time to mess with it. Parts are available from a number of suppliers. Even has the original Japanese NDTs still on it……. Very cool and unique Jeep.”

Kjolseth and Kohlschutter’s 1957 Trip to South American

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

On September 11, 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower introduced the People-to-People Program, “to enhance international understanding and friendship through educational, cultural and humanitarian activities involving the exchange of ideas and experiences directly among peoples of different countries and diverse cultures.”

Two students out of Colorado University, Rolf Kjolseth, of Boulder, Colorado, and Andreas Kohlschutter, of Berne, Switzerland, decided to put Eisenhower’s idea into action by driving a jeep from the United States to Rio De Janeiro, where they planned to sell the jeep and return to the United State by ship. Along the way, they hoped to meet people from all walks of life. They called their jeep “Columbus II”.

1957-06-24-albuquerque-journal-south-america-trip

The trip was sponsored by the U.S. Information Agency and the Pan American Union. The two young men were supposed to write about their trip and send their stories to several newspapers, but I can’t find any articles with their by-lines. They even had their photo take with  then Vice President Richard Nixon on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, but I haven’t located a copy of that yet.

At the very least, Rolf made it back to Colorado, becoming an associate professor at the University of Colorado from 1971-2011. I don’t know if Rolf is alive or not, but he does have an email address associated with UC. Whether he monitors it or not, I couldn’t say, but I sent him an email. Hopefully someone will respond.
