Behold: the 1949 Willys Jeep Wagon Camper – a period conversion of the prototype three-speed, inline four powered workhorse with a Camp’otel collapsible tent, ladder, dual water tanks and storage unit mounted on the roof, complete with the original folding tables and cookware that likely came with the Camp’otel unit.

Restored at some point in its lifetime with metallic green paint and a green vinyl interior, the camper has a mere 58,000km on the clock and goes to auction this month in Gardenia California (if you’re passing) for between $40,000 and $50,000 (about €33,000 to €41,000).
