WILLYS JEEP 138 HKT
in US Army livery, 29th Infantry Division vehicle, date of delivery plate 10th January 1942, serial no. 107003, MB no. 200896
Provenance: From a private Dorset collection. The vendor has driven it to many D-Day beaches and was present at the 50th Anniversary of the Liberation of Jersey parade in May 1995.
In 1994 the vehicle was sent off for restoration at R & R Motor Services, Ashford, Kent, where it had a replacement engine installed (2.2litre side valve petrol) but still retains the original gearbox and axles. The body tub is original and had minimal repairs. The replacement Worthing canvas roof is correct for the period. There are all new seat squabs etc. and it retains the correct slat grill which identifies it as an early model jeep. The jeep is sold with the original brown log book dated 1959.
