Full Description

1955 Hotchkiss Willys Jeep JH101

SOLD £9,018


Spent its life on the Cote D'Azur; runs and drives; needs brakes and tidying; easy project; fun and easy Series I alternative

This Civilian JH101 model Willys Jeep was manufactured in France under licence by Hotchkiss. Post-war, various attempts were made to sell new Jeeps to those requiring genuine off-road ability in a General Purpose vehicle - the JH101 was built specifically for this market.

This one has lived in the sunny south of France which would account for its solid condition and the car still runs and drives (but doesn't stop).

In original condition, some recommissioning to include a few days work on the brakes and wiring and some fresh tyres should see it back on the road again. Bills on file suggest it was last used in anger in 1999 and it comes with its original French registration document and official declaration of sale dated 2010.

More interesting than a Series Land Rover and with just as much off-road ability, this simple, rugged and fun Jeep looks great value.
