Restored meticulously over past 9 years this a genuine WW2 Willys MB Jeep.
Very rare example where all body (201881), chassis (420797) and engine (MB 560363) numbers are matching date of delivery. Willys, unlike Ford, did not allocate matching numbers but sequential analysis shows originality. Believed to have passed to the Greek Army post war before it was imported into the UK around 1987.
The stated mileage is 2087 as indicated today, bound to be wrong! Expected zero reset after previous engine restoration.

A record of work undertaken is available online. Please message for the link if it's not showing.
