Another Tender Truck

• CATEGORIES: Willys Trucks • TAGS: , .

Or, from our Israeli Bureau, spotted another Tender Truck for sale.  I used Babelfish to translate the Hebrew, but it was only barely understandable.  So, we can just check out the pics.  Thanks Or!

You can see the original article here and here’s the main Tender page, though I will be creating a Tender section soon.

Another ‘Tender’ Truck Spotted

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 plant[S] made more then 100,000 cars [Kaiser Frazer, Dofin Renolt, kontesa , Lark Studibaker…] and at some point the plant export was 28% of all the Israeli exports! I couldn’t  find info on the Willys  except that they made the panel, the wagon and the pick-up [we say: ‘Tender’].  All the body parts were made in Israel in another plant in Israel; so, I guess that the trucks  used the low part of the panel/wagon + special design for the back as an original Kaiser-Eilin. The Willys had 2 engines: 2199 cc 4 cylinder  and 3770 cc 6 c‘”
