Not a clue Hanno

 

Is it ugly enough to be NEKAF or the like?

Nope, the NEKAF was a license built M38A1 with some local parts like batteries and tyres.

 

I had never heard / seen it before either, but here's a clue: "Camel Trophy".

 

And oh, being license-built is a clue too.

I see from re reading thread its a u50 I have a keen intrest in the licence built operations so did actualy know a bit about it

Top marks for efective googling would seem fair as its still a bit obscure

New purchase then Hanno ;)

 

Ha ha Pete old mate, trying to catch me red handed with a j-thingy as well, eh?!?

 

No, too much work in relation to its relevance for me. Interesting to find out a HMV I never heard of before, it isn't even listed in Bart Vanderveen's books, mind you :shocked:

 

Also intrigued by how a vehicle built in South America for South America ended up in Belgium.

What do you mean by "bought up"?

 

I do know Kaiser-Frazer took over Willys-Overland in 1953, and that Kaiser sold licences to many car makers. But I did not know they sold a licence to Ford in Brazil.

Indeed the Swiss bought militarized CJ jeeps from Willys, right from shortly after WW2, as did the Dutch Army, the Belgians, and a whole host of other nations.

 

Here are some details where the militarized CJ-5 differed from the M38A1:

 

Battery box in the cowl, Jeep stampings on cowl sides:

Rear tailgate:

View on the dash: hand brake under the dash to the left of the steering wheel; note small fuel filler:

Difficult to see, but front springs have only five leaves:

Rear springs have twelve leaves:

Chassis serial and engine numbers, year of manufacture:
