Only 1000 Produced, Perhaps 100 Remain

Welcome to StreetDreamsTexas as we begin our 22nd year in the classic and muscle car business. And now for something completely different. Our research indicates that this Willys Jeep CJV35/U is one of only 1000 produced and one of perhaps 100 in existence. In 1950, the U.S. Navy contracted the construction of 1000 Jeeps with deep water fording capability and special radio equipment for forward observation duties. Serial numbers ran from 10001 to 11000, making our number 10794 a late production example. The previous owner related that it had been used as a hunting vehicle on his ranch. As such, many original parts are missing, but many remain (hood, excellent headlight bezels, tailgate, etc.). All Naval identification plaques are also present. We recently installed a battery and fuel tank (tank was not original) to get it running, but there are NO BRAKES, making this an ideal project or parts Jeep to be sold AS IS. Although not as polished as our usual inventory, the rarity of this piece of American military history is compelling. It is a safe bet to assume we will never have another, so if you're interested you should give us a call. Street Dreams (830-997-1950) is a full service dealership that can assist with worldwide delivery, insurance, and financing options.
