If you’re a military vehicle enthusiast, you might not want to miss the chance to bid on this 1943 Willys Jeep, at the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance Auction, on Sunday, June 5th. Restored in 2010 by specialists Willys Acres Inc. of Ontario, the tiny (but mighty) 4×4 comes with a 1944 matching trailer, and it packs everything you need to survive in combat.
Powered by a fantastic 2.2L 4-cylinder little engine, nicknamed “Go Devil” (present in nearly all the Jeep vehicles built for the U.S. & Allies, and later used in civilian cars), the 2,453 lb (1,113 kg) truck can easily sprint over rugged terrain, making it an excellent adventure companion. The green beast comes quipped with a rear seat frame, an original shovel & axe, windshield rifle rack, capstan winch, ammunition box, radio set-up, and jerry cans – all dating from the Second World War period. Expected to fetch $35,000 – 45,000. [via]
