PS. I've only recently posted it and don't have the proper pics to display all there, canvas and seats Jeep and Trailer, Jeep is partially apart for painting, have all seats and canvas top , spare tire ..... California Title and s/n tag on front bumper as Willis, with original 1961 sales receipt from US Government Jeep History: got from an old man in San Diego while I was in college, from my girlfriends friend of the family , in 1986, he spent 15 years "making one jeep out of 3 jeeps". I have his original purchase order from FORT IRWIN in 1961. He stripped and painted the frame, rebuilt the engine using best parts from all 3 jeeps - so he said to me, and running chassis (brakes ...) . When I got in in 1986 is was a chassis, engine and wheels with seat and steering wheel, running with a 1 gallon gas tank made from a turpentine can. 2 Tubs he gave me at the time were so shot that I bought a new Willis Overland in France Tub, and new wiring harness. Most all parts I added were original (either willis or Ford with scripted "F" on some parts), run in an acid bath, primed and painted. Not original to my knowledge is the tub and fenders that I bought. I did put on it NOS generator and regulator. It is all 6v, with all blackout lights working. I bought new canvas for the seats and top. I personally have driven it about 5-7 times since I owned it. It is registered as a Historical Vehicle , 1945 Willis (round crossbar on the front frame with title and s/n). I believe that the engine is a civilian engine. in the pictures the Seats and gas tank and other misc body hardware was removed while I was in the middle of re-painting the jeep, still have not moved on that end. Also been purging the fuel line so you see in the engine pictures missing fuel filter and air filter to gain access to fuel line. Original Manuals in great condition sold separately, separate listing under 'books' Parts sold separately, separate listing under 'auto parts' for misc parts in milk crates
