This 1943 Willys MB was in action in Burma (now Myanmar) during WWII. After the war it was moved to neighboring Assam, India where the Indian army used it before auctioning to the general public. I acquired this Jeep in 1995, had it restored in 1996, and used it as the bridal car at my younger brother’s wedding. I drove it in 1998 over 800 miles to Calcutta Port from where it sailed via Colombo and Singapore to Southampton in the UK.
I undertook further extensive restoration in Durham, Uk, where I live and today I am the proud owner of a 76 year old Willys Jeep that is admired by all, young and old. In fact some say that I care more for the Jeep than the wife-not true!! The photos are chronologically 1995, 1996, 1998 and 2019. The Jeep has had a very historic journey round the world and is now in very safe hands.
