No it is not for sale, I just picked it up along with a 1952 dated can. Using this one on my 45 GPW. Thanks for the info!

Wheeling cans can be found with dates from 41 to 42,43,44,45.For some reason the most difficult year to find ,any manufacturer,was quite 1944,and the same happened to my 300plus can owning friend.But this could vary from one area to another,possibly.By the way a matching date of jeep and can has no real significance,but I for one kind of consider this a"lucky"touch.I gathered all my cans looking for the elusive 44 gas can for my 44 Willys.Thank heaven Ford did not make any jerrycan!
