1932 Willys Jeep For Sale

The Wallis & Son Ltd "Jeep" was manufactured by the Ford Motor company in the USA at the end of 1942. The generic name for these vehicles is "Willys Jeep", however the Willys Car Company were unable to produce enough vehicles for the allied war effort so the American government enlisted the ford Motor Company to also produce the Jeep. Willys produced cars and jeeps before and after the war the but Ford Motor Company jeeps were produced only during the war years. The US government stipulated that parts for either be completely interchangeable, hence today these vehicles are usually made up of an assortment of chassis, engines, transmissions and body tubs. This jeep (or a G503 as known to the American military) was registered in early 1943 for service and was probably shipped to the Pacific theatre during it's early war years. It was then shipped to Australia to aid the Royal Australian Air force and probably spent its time there on an airfield as an aircraft tug. In places the air force blue paint scheme can still be seen. Its history directly after the war is unknown but like many others of its type it was probably put to use doing farm duties once the wartime airfields were closed or handed back for agriculture. During the early 1990's it was found in a pile bits by film and TV producer Gavin Taylor (now deceased). Gavin decided he wanted the Jeep and wanted it restored for his own use back in the UK. So after purchasing it, it was shipped back to the UK and underwent a complete nut & bolt restoration by The Carrosserie Company in Co. Durham near Gavin's home in Barnard Castle. The vehicle is now in USAAF bomb group markings. After Gavin Taylor's death Wallis & Son acquired the jeep from his estate that was being administered by Mrs Taylor during 2013. It then underwent some testing, de-bugging and modification and remains a rolling restoration with parts being added or changed on a regular basis to keep it as original and authentic as is possible while also being able to comply with modern motoring demands. Technical specifications: Colour: Drab Olive Green. Matt finish. Weight: 1 ton 1cwt Length: 11 feet 1inch Engine: Petrol 2.2 litre 60bhp Transmission: 3 speed high & low ratios. 2 or 4 wheel drive. Fuel consumption: approx 15 miles per gallon.
