If spelled correctly it would be "Willys Reef". I remain skeptical.

Apparently those are the field grade, the collector grade WLAs are in the warehouse next to the jeeps.

My guess is those Jeeps were photographed somewhere in the Phillipine Islands and those bodies were cut up and turned into Jeepnys long ago.

I heard a few were sold to civilians, but was told that Uncle Sam was no longer willing to accept liability so they were being scrapped instead of sold. Seemed like a terrible waste to me.
They were already cutting up the m151's here in the 70's..The engine and tranny removed and the bodies were quartered up.."Unsafe at any speed" Nader had campaigned to destruction of these little workhorses..This was after the rear stabilizer bar was added . Too Many of them flipped off the road on slick roads or a soft shoulder too.. We had all signed up for one in the Nat. Guard, each of us had the $750,00 dollar blues, while waiting on an Depot delivery.. Some actually were delivered to Ft. Campbell ..The crate jeeps were junk, Parachute failure at several thousand feet had ruined them.
