    Imagine they were pushing these things into the ocean along with planes and tanks and god knows what else after the war.I wonder if the paint was good enough to try and fish a few of them out of the drink....

    What a great Jeep. I passed a chance to buy a basket case one two years ago,,cheap. Thump, thump, thump. That's the sound of my head banging the wall !

    Nice! when i was a kid,u could buy these at auctions (crated) for 50.00$ (i believe) & ,if memory serves, in the back add pages of some mag. Man, if we had only known. Nice jeep , hope u had a safe 4th.

    Thank-you Hems!!

    I guess it means we are on the right track if they are re-creating these, there must be a market for them, and knowing that an original is a "limited supply item", if there are'nt enought originals to go around...
    As long as the knowledge of the collector is passed down as to differentiate the real from the fake!
    My Jeep, being a '52, saw service during the Korean war(think M.A.S.H.)' and being Canadian made, by Ford in Windsor, Ont. it is one of approx. 3800 units.
    If it was American Willy's, it would look exactly the same, being one of approx. 60,000 units. Many were shoved off boats into the sea aftewr the war I'm told!
    Parts are still relatively easy to find here, and several business' have begun to focus solely on restoring or reproducing the much needed parts to keep these vets running and looking good.
    Love the photo of the " Ferret boneyard" too.

    Thank-you Phil, very nice of you to say! This old girl still get's the "jeep wave" going down the road, and tons of attention anywhere it's parked, and the neighbourhood kids are always eager to go for a spin! Thanks for the nice words about the house too Phil, it is a culmination of a lifetime of hard work(built it myself from the plan on up)!

    What a beauty !! Wish I could afford one !!! A good one here in uk £10,000-£13,000 ..
    I love my jeep yj which is based on the cj derived from the willys .. & I find it a lot of fun especially in the snow !! I also use it for what its for offroading!! unlike many which are so spotless their owners are frightened to really use them !!
    A doctor I work for sometimes has 3 ferrets & an austin champ in immaculate condition , all seen service sometime or other & I think theyre great fun ;-)
