A concept that was created at the end of WW2. The Jeep was so loved by the troops during WW2 that every soldier wanted a jeep when they got home. Because of all of the servicemen request for a jeep, Willys-Overland started to build the civilian Farm Jeep with lots of farm equipment for the soldier who was coming home. Great idea, but it was a total flop because the US Army was selling surplus Jeeps (after the war) for 50.00 and so, veterans got there Jeep, but not from the Willys-Overland Co. The rest was history as they say. The Farm Jeep went away.
We are a small father and son business and we collect old 16mm film. 5 yrs ago, we bought 6 reels of very rare Farm Jeeps. These reels are all very rare and I have had several people ask if I would release the footage. We hesitated because it is all silent. We don't think we will sell a lot of these, but for the enthusiast, you should be very happy. We hope you'll Strap in and Enjoy.
