This is an amazing Jeep. The Willys Jeep MB is a versatile vehicle that is wonderful for off roading. This Jeep can last you more than 60 years. This is not for Sports car fanatics. This truck is not meant to go very fast but it is tough and is my favorite vehicle. The Jeep MB is hard to find. They are old , they were made in the 1950's and 60's for the most part. The MB was a Allied war vehicle used in World War two and then was made for civilian use after the war. There are many other Jeeps that were created after this model that are almost identical. They have a 4 cylinder engine with a manual transmission. Overall it is the best jeep i have ever seen.

Figures included - Decals for 4 versions In 1940, after World War II had broken out, the US general staff ordered various factories to design a light multi-purpose vehicle with all-wheel drive. The American Bantam Company, Willys Overland, and Ford Motor Co. competed with each other. Willys prototype was chosen, which, after an initial run of 1500 vehicles, went into mass production at the beginning of 1941 and reached a total output of 640.000 units out of which 277,000 pieces were produced by Ford under a licensing agreement. This shows that the Jeep was the most widely produced light vehicle of the war industry during World War II. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A PLASTIC MODEL KIT AND IS SUPPLIED UNPAINTED. PAINT AND GLUE NOT INCLUDED.

Military received three tenders. Bantam Car Company was the initial winner but couldnt meet demand so the job went to Willys-Overland Motors. Willys was to take the best design features of the three submitted tenders and build a standardized vehicle. Eventually in order to meet an even greater demand the Ford Motors Company was asked to build a similar vehicle. During World War II there was a total of 647,870 Jeeps produced by the three companies; Willys-Overland produced 362,841 of them.
