Found in crate” 1944 Willys MB Jeep to cross the block

WWII 1944 Willys JeepDuring World War II, Ford and Willys produced nearly 648,000 Jeeps as light utility vehicles. The bulk of these, some 361,339 units, were Willys MB models, like the 1944 Willys MB Jeep set to cross the block at the upcoming Bonhams Greenwich sale. Constructed in February of 1944, chassis number 280026 may have been crated for shipment to Europe or the Pacific theater, but the claim that it was found in a crate some 30 years ago is bound to spur discussion among collectors.
