Description for Jeep M422 1962

You are bidding on a M422, restoration project, Mighty Mite, Air Cooled, Serial #1375 Jeep. This Mighty Mite was designed and built for the Marine Corps to use in Vietnam. My Mighty Mite "IS" a very RARE piece of Military equipment history. The original government order to AMC (American Motor Company) was to make 4,000 Mighty Mites. Only 3,922 were completed. The troops preferred Helicopters instead of Jeeps. This lead to the withdrawal (cancellation) of the remaining Jeeps. I believe this Jeep may have been a Test Vehicle when the M422 was converted to the M422A-1. The 1375 serial number of this Mighty Mite is in the range of the change over. I bought two Mighty Mites, restored one, sold it, and now I'm too old to do the second one. The body is aluminum, minor dents, frame is steel, no rotted sections, many many original parts. It will be a great piece of history when completed.
