With the close of WWII now eminent, Willy's-Overland began to consider the development of a civilian jeep that it could market beyond the scope of the militarized MB, leading to the first mass production of the CJ-2A in 1945. Our Willy's CJ-2A Jeep model is handmade out of iron. It features many intricate exterior parts such as fenders, wheels, grills, headlights, spare tires, a storage compartment, and a unique open holes frame. For the interior, it includes seats, a steering wheel, a stick shift, and small details on the dash. Display this model anywhere you like and it will surely make a conversational piece. It's truly a must-have for the collector and enthusiast!
In June 1940, with World War II on the horizon, the U.S. Army solicited bids from 135 automakers for a 1/4 ton "light reconnaissance vehicle" tailored to Army specifications. Only three companies responded - Bantam, Willy's, and Ford - but, within a year's time they collectively produced the template for the vehicle known worldwide as the "jeep." The first Willy's MB Jeeps were produced in 1941, making it the oldest off-road vehicle ever made, and the first civilian models were produced in 1945. It inspired a number of other light utility vehicles, such as the Land Rover which is the second oldest 4-wheel-drive brand. Many Jeep variants serving similar military and civilian roles have since been created in other nations.
