Willy’s Jeep MB

Willy’s Jeeps were mass produced for the United States’ Army during the Second World War.  There were over 359,000 produced between 1941 and 1945, however they averaged just 40 hours of service life, meaning that few remain in existence today.  This survivor was produced in 1942, it’s owner plans to leave the vehicle as it is, but needs to restore the underneath and the (already heavily welded and filled) bodywork in certain areas to make it roadworthy.
