"A fun Jeep and trailer combination that is in good working condition but has worn motor."

Description

The car is mostly in its original form. Dark lighting, shovel, ax handle, rifle holder, foldable windscreen, and the difficult and sought-after accessory Bantam 1/4 ton trailer are among the features.
Turn signals are connected to existing lighting in order to function, but they are not visible (when not required) in both the car and the trailer. There is a valve on Bantamkärran's platform that allows water to flow out but not in. The cart could float at full load, according to the original specifications. We have not put it to the test. If the "compartment" is supposed to be filled with water, the Ford has a water drain under in the rear wheelhouse.

Given that the jeep has an odometer we think its in km´s, we believe it also belonged to the Swedish defense, which purchased a number after the Second World War ended.

Facts about the model

De byggdes 1941-1945. Både Willys Overland (MB) och Ford (GPW) byggde denna lätta terrängående bil för att kunna användas av de allierade under andra världskriget. Närmare 360 000 exemplar byggdes av Willys MB och c:a 278 000 exemplar fick Ford ut ur sina fabriker. De är fyrhjulsdrivna med en treväxlad låda utrustad med hög och lågväxel.
Sommaren 1940 fick American Bantam och Willys Overland förfrågan från de amerikanska myndigheterna om de på 49 dagar kunde ta fram en fungerande prototyp samt att på 75 dagar ta fram 70 testbilar. American Bantam vann kontraktet men hade så dålig ekonomi och svaga resurser så att Willys Overland fick bli leverantör den lätta terrängbilen. Ford hade på ett senare stadie givit sig in i leken och fick hösten 1941 också börja tillverka den på grund av Willys leveransproblem.
Efter kriget såldes många via överskottslager runt om i världen. I Sverige användes se många gånger som bärgningsfordon, brandbilar och inom jordbruket.

  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends.
