The Toledo Blade has an article regarding the old site of the beloved Wrangler and Cherokee is for sale. For a small $6.7 to $8.9M, you can own this historic land . Sadly most of the original buildings are all but gone.

From the article, "Considered by some as the birthplace of the sport-utility vehicle, the former site of the Toledo Jeep assembly plant is for sale.

"DaimlerChrysler AG has listed the 111-acre site at Central Avenue and North Cove Boulevard in North Toledo with the Southfield, Mich., office of Equis Corp., which specializes in corporate real estate transactions.


"Demolition of a massive factory complex dating from 1910 is nearly complete. Smokestacks marking the plant as onetime home of early 20th century automotive giant Willys-Overland are among the last structures standing.

"Before the factory was leveled, it produced military Jeeps in World War II and in 1983 launched the Jeep Cherokee, an SUV which some consider the first entry in a vehicle category that attained huge popularity in the 1990s.

"A sales brochure for the property that Equis distributed in recent days to brokers, developers, and others says that the "site will be leveled to the foundation."

"It describes the parcel's "visibility from I-75" and calls it a "prime development site."

Leave the smokestacks, it's part of Jeep and Toledo history and heritage. And besides, with the Germans gone, Jeep, or its successor in interest, will probably need the production space for a new factory.

Perrrrrrfect idea--and leave the smokestacks, like they did in Pittsburgh at the old Carnegie Steel plant.

Maybe turn it into a permanent "Camp Jeep" site.
