4TH OF JULY JEEP

4TH OF JULY JEEP

THIS IS A PICTURE OF MY 1945 WILLYS MB, DOD APRIL 12, 1945, THE DAY PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT PASSED AWAY.


MY WILLYS JEEP WAS IN GOOD SHAPE WHEN I GOT IT FROM A LOCAL CONTRACTOR.

THE FRONT CHASSIS ID TAG READ: JEEP WILLYS SCOUT CAR, WILLYS OVERLAND MOTORS INC., TOLEDO, OHIO, WITH A SERIAL NUMBER.

THE GLOVE BOX DATA PLATE HAD A MATCHING SERIAL NUMBER AND A DELIVERY DATE OF 4/12/1945.

A GROUND UP RESTORATION WAS DONE AND IT APPEARED THAT THE JEEP HAD THE ORIGINAL CHASSIS, ENGINE, DRIVE-TRAIN AND BODY WITH A SIX-VOLT ELECTRICAL SYSTEM.

NEW OLD PARTS AND RECONDITIONED ONES AND ACCESSORIES WERE ADDED DURING THE RESTORATION.

MY JEEP IS USED AT VETERANS EVENTS, AIRSHOWS, LIVING HISTORY DISPLAYS, REENACTMENTS AND PARADES.

I HAVE DRIVEN GENERALS AROUND IN IT AT DIFFERENT EVENTS, AND ON OCCASION I WEAR AN ORIGINAL WW II WAAC OUTFIT DURING THESE TIMES.

MY LATE WW II JEEP MODEL HAS A NUMBER OF ORIGINAL CHANGES, WHICH THE EARLIER ONES DID NOT HAVE.

I LOVE MY JEEP AND KEEP IT BUSY!



Larry's Comment: That is a beautiful restoration Ethel.

Thank you for keeping one of these wonderful pieces of American history alive and running for all to see.

I am jeep fan and I own a 1957 Willys cut chase Jeep. The image of the 1945 Willy posted on the page is superb. From the image I can understand that you are taking good care of your Jeep.
