Here’s the back end of another Tender spotted by the sharp-eyed Israeli bureau.  I don’t know anything specifically about this Truck.  The image was posted on the Jalopy Journal (entry #39) along with some Jeep Rod pics.

UPDATE 3: The eWillys Israel bureau is hot on the trail of the ‘Tender’.  Another set of pics was accompanied by the following update.

Here’s what he Googled in Hebrew: “A man named Efraim Eilin had a vision of an Israeli car industry. In 1950 he made partnership with Kaizer Enterprises and in 1951 he opened the Kaizer-Eilin  assembly plant.

The Willys had 2 engines: 2199 cc 4 cylinder  and 3770 cc 6 c‘”
