Mike, I was asked for pictures. Here are a few. I have many. We also have 2 full cabinets of toy flat fender jeeps from 3/4" to 12", metal, plastic, new, old, but mostly green. 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 up elk hunting in the back woods of Washington state. My wife and I dated in this jeep and we went on lots of outtings with 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 the woods each fall. Here are a few pictures of our 1942 Willys MB. Thanks, Gary & JoAnne Christensen Des Moines, Washington
1944 MB Jeep - My Dad and Grandpa built this jeep back in 1970 and at that time it was rusted out the frontier tool holders were gone and no Engine, so they went from the front of the doors all the way around with 1/8\" plate then installed a Chevy 283 in the engine bay, the rest of the drive train stayed original untill 1985 when I started driving it and destroyed the tranny, so it got a chevy truck trans, then it sat from 1987 till 1995 while I was in the army, and I had purchased the frame, engine and running gear out of a 1970 Bronco........now 10\" out of the middle of the frame 14\" off of the front and two or so from the back, lots of welding fabricating and parts hunting and a paint job...................here you go!!! Willys 44MAG
Our car was built in 1962 by french army contructor Hotchkiss. It is a command jeep with sahara configuration (extreme temperatures). You can see the expansion bottle in the front of the radiator. They were built under Willys specifications. The model is an MB (Hotchkiss M201). We have done extensive work and rebuilt on the car with the original 1942 Willys MB manual and every bit and piece is as it shoud be.
