435: The MB was produced June of 1943 and delivered to the US troops in England. He came with the operation Overlord to the landing of the allies in the Normandy. After the advance to Caen, the Willys participated in the battle of Bastogne where finally the US army was blocked by the German Tank Units. After the liberation of Bastogne by General Pattons 3 Army the MB was so heavy damaged that the forces let him back. He found a new life with a farmer who used the MB as a midget tractor for decades. We spent two years restoring it with original parts to achieve a museum quality Willys MB.
