Immaculately restored 1944 Willys MB to represent 'La Guepe' (The Wasp), of No.4 Free French SAS.
Painstakingly researched to be correct in every detail. La Guepe was one of only a handful of SAS Jeeps dropped by glider in WW2. Ground up restoration, everything restored or replaced with new (NOS where available). Rebuilt WW2 engine, carb, box, transfer box, steering, axles and chassis. New body, wiring loom, wheels and tyres, brakes, clocks, switches, seats, rad, starter, dynamo, brake and fuel lines, fuel tank, lights, etc. etc. Email me for a full list of parts and all the work done, got a huge pile of receipts!
