Kaiser Willys, This Jeep was bought by my dad eighteen years ago from a car repair shop in Armenia, Colombia. The Jeep was in use for the first six years but after that it was stored and took heavy damage over the years. We fixed it up a year ago and decided to use the Kayser Willys decals. This vehicle is an eye catcher every time we take it out for a spin. Hope this helps. Sincerely Daniel Torres
Hi Mike, I wanna thank you guys for helping me keep my Willys Fleet in tip top shape for all these years. I've enclosed some photos. The Black Beauty is the princess of my fleet, its a 1949 Jeepster which I had painted black with green accent two tone, it's been modified by the previous owner to have a 1952 F-head six which gives this ol' girl a nice comfortable ride especially with the overdrive. I procured Middleton (1954 jeep wagon 2 wheel with F-head 6) as a donor vehicle for the princess, its equiped with an identical overdrive, tranny, and engine. He was rescued from a barn and the radiator was packed with acrorns! Much to the chipmunks dismay, I got the ol' wagon to turn over then I realized that "Middleton" (after his former owner Middleton Train) was no longer a parts car. He is still a work in progress, nonetheless an object of beauty. The Red Devil (1947 CJ2A) is my fun workhorse that I use to plow and haul hay for the goats. My wife likes to drive the red devil in the summer without the top. The top is an original 1953 Sears Roebuck aluminium half top that provides dryness and warmth in the winter months.

Kaiser Jeep FC-150AM 1960 model. Prototype made on heavy duty Jeep Chassis for military purpose. The Jeep has T-98 gearbox and Dana 44 front and rear. It has leaf springs and axle width like the FC-170, but the frame has the measures form the FC-150. The chassis is only made in 5 ex this year.
When I found this jeep, it was just a wreck in a coffee farm at Castañer (Lares, Puerto Rico). This is a mix of 1946 CJ2-A with 1942 MB & GPW. I spent about two years working in this vehicle (starting in april 2010). There are some many details that I have to correct, but now I’m close to finish. According to the last owner, this vehicle was fixed in the mid 60’s using original military parts from another wreck founded in Ramey Air Force Base (Aguadilla, Puerto Rico). For example, the front axle shaft was marked with “F” (FORD), and is a rare ‘Rzeppa’ model. Also manifold, bolts, pedals, ect., were marked with “F”. The carburetor is a Carter 536 S (1941-1945) and works perfect. The engine is a willy’s overland L134 mounted over a CJ-2 ‘chassis’. Some replacements were used to complete my restoration. I’m still looking for a DANA 27 rear axle and a T-84 Transmission to finish the job, but right now this jeep has a perfect running. Numbers, marks and colors were selected to commemorate the LRDG and the 880 Ethiopian Commonwealth Group (North Africa,WWII). Some historical references were used for the paint job. For me, this is not only an old MB jeep, it’s also a great time machine. Thanks to the people of ‘Kaiser Willys’.
