Lovely genuine 1942 Willys MB imported to the UK in 1959Purchased by our vendor in 2008 from the legendary Peter Agg CollectionCorrectly painted with appropriate Serial Numbers and the usual ancillariesWith an original tool kit, jack, first aid kit, aerial, and even some original goggles! Running on more comfortable modern tyres. Simple matter to return to 'bar grips'Well restored, accurate and welcome anywhere In early 1940, the United States Department of War had determined it needed a light, cross-country, four-wheel drive, reconnaissance vehicle and was anxious to have one in time for, what may possibly turn out to be, America's entry into World War II in Europe. The U.S. Army solicited proposals from domestic car manufacturers for a replacement for its existing, ageing, light motor vehicles, mainly motorcycles and sidecars, and some Ford Model Ts. Recognizing the need to create standard specifications, the Army formalised its requirements on July 11, 1940, and submitted them to 135U.S.automotive manufacturers. It's a matter of history that ultimately two manufacturers were successful, Willys with their MB (US quarter-ton Army truck) and later, Ford with their GPW (in production designated 'GP'.)Impressively the time taken from conception and tenders being sent out, to the production lines starting to roll, was less than two hundred days, amazing for a vehicle that has stood the test of time and become an unlikely motoring icon. This ability to get things done quickly and well was the deciding factor in America being asked to produce military hardware in vast numbers and build hundreds of ships, arguably influencing the outcome of the Second World War. As the war progressed Willys-Overland produced over 300,000 Jeeps and the Ford Motor Co. was drafted in to help boost production and contributed over 250,000 units. Ford assembled Jeeps were recognizable by their pressed steel grilles as opposed to the Willys' slat style grille.Considering the manner in which the Jeep wasconceivedand its role in warfare, it's remarkable that most of the finest classic car collections will include a Willys or Ford WWII Jeep, making the restored example offered here a candidate for serious consideration should one of these yardstick cars have, so far, eluded you.Dating from 1942, this Willys Jeep was first registered in the UK on the 13th of July, 1959 and has been looked after by our vendor since 2008. He purchased it from the legendary collection of the late Peter Agg who was known for seeking out the best examples he could find. It was one of the last vehicles sold from the collection and he had obviously used it quite a lot as he had gone to the trouble of changing the original 'Bar-Grip' tyres to a more modern alternative. Bar grip tyres were developed in the 1930s and were the standard military pattern throughout World War II, however, they are not associated with driver comfort or indeed going in a straight line and modern tyres transform the Jeeps road behaviour. Ifhistoricalaccuracy is important then it's simply a question of fitting a set of bar grips. Otherwise, this vehicle is completely genuine, correctly painted and serialed, and naturally is fitted with all the ancillaries associated with a 1942 Willys. Pleasingly, it's also accompanied by an original tool kit, jack, first aid kit, aerial, and even some original goggles! Every rural car show in the country now has a section for Military Vehicles, and with WW2 re-enactments and the prestigious classic car meetings all clamouring for 1940's Jeeps, this stunningly well-restored example could keep you busy for the rest of the Summer.
