The origin of the name is based on many fairy tales, but one thing has been passed down: the test driver Red Hausmann drove up the steps of the Capitol in Washington in February 1941 to present it and when he came down he answered the question of the Washington Daily News what kind of car it was with the words: “it’s a Jeep”!
Planned as a military vehicle for general purposes it found its way to the public in 1945 and is still today, because of its reliability, a favourite for all-terrain use and a lifestyle vehicle with the name CJ( Civilian Jeep).
This Jeep was purchased by the seller and completely overhauled. Since the restoration, it was rarely used and always kept in a garage. It is very well equipped and updated to a 5.0l engine. It looks great and sounds even better. The Body is painted in beige with military green on the inside. It is equipped with new BFGoodrich tires and 2 extra tanks (30L + 10L) in the back to be be able to drive an extra 200 km. Safety belts in the front and in the back were added for safety. Also a central storage between the seats was added with a key lock. On the frontbumper a winch with an enforced metal bar was added to tow yourself out of trouble. In case it rains a soft top was made to measure in military green with doors and windows which can be opened.
