SUMMARY

This is a rare Deep Mudder (Factory Cross Country modifications) that's been meticulously and accurately restored over our vendor's 13 years ownership.

DESCRIPTION

  • This fine example was built on 11/06/1945 at the Dallas plant with a life expectancy in combat of thee months
  • It's a 'Deep Mudder'- designed to be able to run in mud and flood water- low production and rare
  • Differences include taller tyres with a speedometer adaptor, spare wheel rim only as the tyre didn’t fit on the original bracket some cars were issued with vacuum wipers, exhaust pipe runs parallel to the rear axle
  • Meticulously and accurately restored over our vendor's 13 years ownership with invoices
  • Finished in the correct shade of Olive Drab with accurate US stencils
  • Very well detailed with the appropriate tools (Collins axe and Ames shovel). Very impressive
  • Upgraded with an alternator and mechanical fuel pump in the interests of reliability
  • Starts on the button and drives really well. Paperwork and photographs to document the restoration
  • Every rural car show in the country now has a section for Military Vehicles, and with WWII re-enactments and the prestigious classic car meetings all clamouring for 1940s Jeeps, this lovely example could keep you busy for the rest of the Summer
