Two Jeeps from the History Books Cross the Auction Block

1944 Wyllis MB JeepIf you’re into WWII history, you’ll love this. Just recently, two classic Jeeps went up for auction at the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance and each was expected to go for top dollar.

Showing just how important this era is to some people, professionals put the value of the fully restored 1945 Ford GPW between $35,000 and $45,000. The 1944 Willys MB which claims to have been discovered “new in crate” is expected to go for somewhere between $20,000 and $30,000.

Either way, these old military vehicles are both evocative of the era in which they were built and it is great to see so much interest in them still. For a look at the modern evolution of the Jeep name, stop by Cumberland Chrysler Center in Cookeville, TN.
