1951 Photo of ‘Jeep’ Crate Destined to Thailand on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

I’m a big confused by the ‘Jeep’ image stamped onto the side of the crate. In 1951, Willys-Overland was downplaying the use of jeep as a brand. This photo looks to be more like a post 1953-Kaiser-purchase photo. I tried to find a 1951 time-frame photo of a boxed jeep, but couldn’t find any I could compare to this one. Any thoughts on this?

It’s possible, given the photo was published as part of a 1987 article, that someone just guessed on the time-frame of this photo. Also, the fact that Thailand remained active in South Korea until March of 1955 might also provide an explanation for why these boxed jeeps were heading to Thailand.

View all the information on eBay

“1942 Willys MB Jeep built 1/8/1942. The serial # is 110515, frame # 110515, engine # MB595247. This Jeep was restored 18 years ago and driven 20 miles since. The Jeep has the original metal and Tub with some rust in the forward hat channel and a dent behind the passengers seat (see photos). The engine starts easily and runs very well, the transmission works as it should. The transfer case works correctly but is dripping some oil. All gauges work except the fuel gauge. The tires are as new and the brakes are very good. All electrical is working except the horn. Correct dish wheels. This Jeep has the correct steering wheel, the later WWII jeeps had the steel spoke wheels to save rubber.
This is a good looking and good driving 42 MB.”

1946 VEC CJ-2A Eliot, ME $10,500

UPDATE: Price dropped to $10,500

(08/26/2020) As the seller notes, the tub was rebuilt, but not to original specs.

“L134 Go Devil motor runs well, rebuilt carb, new intake and exhaust manifolds, exhaust, radiator, hoses, starter, coil, battery, thermostat, all new brakes including lines and master, all new Walek 12V wiring harness, rebuilt steering box, removed tub to clean and repaint frame (394441) which was replaced at some point by previous owners. The tub was rebuilt by a previous owner and it you are a purest, it will need to have some rework. The 3 speed T90 transmission works, Dana 18 transfer case and Dana 41 rear is good. All gauges work however I have no documentation to confirm odometer.

Windshield is off 3A but have a 2A frame. I have the original air cleaner but prefer the K&N for better functionality. All fluids have been replaced this year and many seals replaced. That said, these Jeeps leak. Top speed is 35-40 mph. This Willys was manufactured in February of 46 so it would have had the column shift and been either Pasture Green or Harvest Tan. Found some Pasture Green on the underbelly. Looking for enthusiast who wants to take this restoration to the finish line”

1950 Willys Sedan Delivery Export Company Brochure

This is the fifth of five similar brochures, though it’s the only one described as a Willys-Overland Export Company Brochure. It highlights the Willys Sedan Delivery vehicle. The form number is SD-73-MI–80M–350. Like the others, it is nearly 22″x17″.

The brochure in the post below this appears to be the same, though with different colors, and it states it is from Willys-Overland Motors. Why are they different? I don’t know.

I don’t have a high resolution version of this brochure, as it’s more expensive (almost $50 after shipping and taxes .. it comes from Australia) than I’d like to pay.

Curiously, it has the same form number as the export version in the post above: SD-73-MI–80M–350.
