In World War II, the Willys MB became the utility vehicle relied on by U.S. soldiers. It was in such high demand throughout the 1940s that Willys could not build them fast enough. To keep up with demand, Ford and Bantam began producing them as well. Ford’s version, called the “GPW” for Government Issue Passenger Willys is more than likely where the term “Jeep” came from. Since the absorption of the Willys brand, AMC Jeep began producing a modern interpretation of the original Willys MB and named the company after the military slang, Jeep.

The example presented here will be referred to as a Jeep CJ7, but we by no means intend to imply it is stock. Under the hood sits a beautiful Chevrolet 350 cu. in. V-8 engine. It was built with an Edelbrock performance camshaft, bored .30 over, fitted with dual four-barrel Edelbrock carburetors, wired to MSD ignition and connected to Headman headers. The intake manifold is bright polished aluminum, the rocker covers are stainless steel and the hoses, fuel and vacuum lines are stainless steel with aircraft style fittings. In addition, numerous brackets, mounts and supports have been chromed. Overall the fit, finish and installation of the monster motor is excellent. The transmission is a Chevrolet turbo-hydramatic 350 automatic controlled by a B&M Floor shifter. The CJ7 is raised slightly from stock via Skyjacker shocks that make ample room for the American racing wheels and off-road tires.

The bright red paint was beautifully applied and has an excellent texture and shine. There are lots of exterior chrome accents including double tube bumpers front and rear. The driver and passenger seats are very supportive red Recaro buckets with two tones of blue stripes. The occupants are protected by the large padded roll bar overhead and hinge mounted crash bars in place of doors. The silver aluminum dash houses a full complement of Autometer gauges and a modern stereo hides in the center compartment. We urge any prospective buyer to see this wonderful vehicle himself. It was surely not built for fashion as it has serious off-road capabilities.
