025: Gary Christensen’s 1942 Willys MB
My dad bought our jeep in 1966 for $600 at a used car lot. He wanted something to tow behind his truck & camper to use elk hunting in the back woods of Washington state. Here are a few pictures of our jeep. We also have 2 full cabinets of toy flat fender jeeps from 3/4″ to 12″, metal, plastic, new, old, but mostly green.
My wife and I dated in this jeep and we went on lots of outings in it. My dad passed away in 1976 and my mom gave it to me. We rebuilt it in 2002/2003. We’ve won a few trophies and plaques at local car shows but I still use it in the woods each fall.
-Thanks, Gary & JoAnne Christensen
