An eye-catching jeep from popular movies and TV shows is about to hit the market this month.
A 1944 Willys Jeep is being offered from TLO Film Services to Iconic Auctioneers in a Nov. 11 auction.
The jeep is said to have been featured in Steven Spielberg’s "Band of Brothers," "Saving Private Ryan" and other hit shows, according to Iconic Auctioneers.
The vehicle was registered originally in the U.K. in 1977.
It had three former registered owners before it received a full rebuild of its original engine in February 2023.
The engine rebuild cost over $5,000 — but the highest bidder for the Jeep will receive it fully serviced, Iconic Auctioneers pointed out.
The vehicle was originally developed by American Bantam for the U.S. Army as a go-anywhere, four-wheel drive vehicle that could survive the barest minimum maintenance, as Iconic Auctioneers explained.
The original prototype in 1940 did not meet the Army’s requirements — as the engine was deemed "insufficiently powerful."
After losing faith in Bantam’s ability to create what it wanted, The Pentagon then let Willys and the Ford Motor Company take over the responsibility, according to Iconic Auctioneers.

Willys created a powerful engine that would later go on to be produced as the Model MB — ultimately being produced by the millions.
Iconic Auctioneers car specialist Richard Grenhalgh said in a media statement that the company is excited to be auctioning off the item.
"This little jeep is quite famous in its own right," he said.

This particular Jeep has almost 30,000 miles, a manual transmission — and is an olive drab body color shade.
The Willys Jeep is expected to sell for over $19,000.
