1942 Willys BRT
1942 Willys MB-BRT British contract jeep. Purchased in 2007 from Grant Hopkins of Saanich, BC. He bought it from a fellow on Goudge Island, near where the ferry comes in from Vancouver to Schwartz Bay. Rusty but very original. Has all three seats, radio filter, original gas tank complete with rubber insert to keep items from falling into gas tank well at front edge. Hood is a later one (no wind deflector under the leading edge) and has a hole at the front and centre which suggest that it had a General officer's flag staff fitted. Vehicle had original green paint underneath but is typical of those sent to North Africa in 1942 - some of which were used by the LRDG, SAS and PPA.
Willys MB 1121 as it arrived in Canada, exactly as it left the Norwegian Army in 1985.
