Hand Built Half-sized Flatfender Monroe, WA $1500

• CATEGORIES: Models

No pics just yet, but it might have been built based on some of the plans floating around at the time.

https://seattle.craigslist.org/sno/atq/d/monroe-willys-kids-toy-hand-built/7186776087.html

“Get this before it goes to an antique auction. Pictures coming shortly.

This is what I will call a 1/2 size Willys replica, built buy a guy in late 1952 or early 1953 for his young daughter who happens to be our neighbor. Her late husband took it appart and my son is almost done putting it together. It has a Wisconsin pull start motor (apparently from a gasoline operated washer) and it was driven 126 miles (according to the odometer) by the little girls. It was pictured next to the original Willys in the Fall 1953 edition of the Pied Piper of Helena.

My son restored the panels and wood frame but will be seeking a home shortly. Looking for someone who is interested in Korean/WWII memorabilia and in particular kids toys from that vintage. It even has the original tires and seat. He has 5 screws to replace and then it will be back together, looking forward to starting it. A collector will understand the value of a one-on-a kind custom toy like this. Looking for someone willing to make an offer. If interested please reply back with name and phone number. Will provide pictures to interested parties.”
