Footnotes

  • Produced by the million, the ubiquitous Jeep saw service in every theatre of the Second World War and continued in military service with armies world-wide for several decades thereafter. Today the Jeep remains highly sought after by discerning military vehicle enthusiasts everywhere.

    This Willys-built Jeep was manufactured in 1944 and is believed to have seen service with the American Army in the Pacific. Benefiting from a 'last nut and bolt' restoration of the mechanicals and bodywork, undertaken by a previous owner, it has been repainted in the correct Olive Drab Matt, an original US military colour. The engine has been rebuilt and the three-speed gearbox and axles overhauled, while the original Carter carburettor is still in place and working correctly. All canvasses have been replaced and all new accessories fitted. The electrical system has been converted to 12 volts using a concealed regulator while retaining the standard dynamo. The front 'A' bar, antenna, axe and shovel are all authentic, as is the dash mounted gun case. Offered with a V5C registration document, this Jeep represents a wonderful opportunity to purchase a piece of military history that is ideal for some summer fun and perfect transport for the Goodwood Revival.
