Ok guys, what is the scoop with this Willys Jeep? I have seen one or two photos floating around the internet, but never found out the story behind it.

That model seems to be quite modified, I have a Willy’s Jeep as well and its very famous for the part it played in the World Wars, it could easily be disassembled and after moving through deep rivers or sea could be reassembled fairly easily, also the performance meant that it could conquer most terrains, even swamps. That could have been one of those limited models made during that era.

I have heard that in 1947, US army asked to men in Germany to trial for a transformation of Willys jeep with second hand parts. Just to keep them busy…
Some soldiers built really nice and comfortable “jeeps”.
Private Ariel M. Hunt (344 equipment company) won the price!
