Those of a certain age remember watching the Roy Rogers Show on television, and some might even be old enough to remember when Roy Rogers and company made Western movies. Part of that company was Rogers’ wife, Dale Evans. Another part was their sidekick, Pat Brady.
Frustrated by the mule he was riding, Brady opted instead for “Nellybelle,” a 1946 Willys Jeep CJ-2A. The Pick of the Day is Nelly Belle II, a 1946 Willys Jeep offered for sale on ClassicCars.com by its private owner in North Scottsdale, Arizona.
“This is the Jeep that sat on display in the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Branson Museum for many years!” the seller says in advertisement. “It comes with all the documents and COA’s and original museum title signed by Roy Rogers Jr.
“The Jeep runs and drives well and (is a) lot of fun to enjoy around town and would certainly be the pinnacle of any Roy Rogers or Western collection!”
Nelly Belle II is gray in color and has a manual transmission.
The vehicle is offered for $29,500. To view this listing, see Pick of the Day.
Hagerty reports that the original Jeep used on the television show sold at auction for $116,500 in 2010 and at another auction in 2018 for $38,400.
