Jeep factory pictures

Post by Robbo »

You jeep people have probably seen these before but just in case - most taken in Toledo at the Willys plant:

Note the finished jeeps which appear to be stored on the roof of a building maybe awaiting testing or crating.

Note also the lack of data plates on that last example.

You probably have already seen them but there is a good collection of Willys factory photographs in the Toledo Public Library which can be accessed online - search "jeep" at:

Robbo,
note also the unusual transmission cross member mounting.
