1962 JEEP HOTCHKISS M-201
Chassis No. 19781
12 000 euros of invoices
French collector's registration
The Jeep Willys is no longer presented. It will remain the most emblematic vehicle of the Second World War, it is the myth and the symbol of the liberation. The Americans arrived with it, won and we received it as a gift. These examples equipped the French army, but clearly insufficient in number, it is Hotchkiss which will manufacture under license, in its factory of Stains, a series of approximately 27000 examples until 1966, with the denomination M201. It remained in the French army until the end of the 90s.
The car for sale is one of these "Jeeps" manufactured by Hotchkiss under the M201 type for the French army.
It is very healthy and does not show any corrosion. It is equipped with a shovel and an axe on the left side and the hood is in very good condition.
Nearly 12000 euros were spent on the Jeep in 2012.
A "jeep" is much more than just a car: it is probably the most famous and mythical vehicle in the world. It was used for more than fifty years in the army, and is still capable of rendering many services in civilian life. Simply efficient, it is a vehicle universally recognized for all its intrinsic qualities.
