About Us

Kaiser Willys Auto Supply, a family owned business providing quality and reasonably priced vintage Willys Jeep Parts, was founded by Ron Meditz and handed down from father to son, Mike Meditz, in the early 2000s. In the beginning, Ron’s interest in the hobby began with a1954 Kaiser Darrin (pictured below), and very quickly expanded into Kaiser Frasier, Willys Jeep, Truck and Station Wagon. For as long as he can remember, owner Mike Meditz can recall many childhood experiences surrounding his father’s interest in the Kaiser / Willys line of automobiles.

While other families enjoyed vacations at the beach, mountains or theme parks, Mike’s father Ron could be found with his family in tow at one of many weekend swap shops, car club shows, or restoration competitions, with parts packed tightly in the back of a U-Haul. Family trips were Willys adventures spent on the road or unloading parts out of a towed trailer. In every sense of the word, owner Mike Meditz grew up "in the business."

Inheriting the family passion for Willys Jeeps, Mike started working on his own Willys (his first car) at the young age of 12, a 1965 CJ-5 that he restored (later also restoring a CJ-2A), while bussing tables at China Palace and working at CVS. As Mike grew older, the parts that his father was stocking grew too until the entire house was taken over. Mike laughs as he recounts the memory of the one and only steadfast family rule in the house - "no Jeep parts on the dinner table." He remembers piles of stock, stacked in living rooms, bedrooms and closets, before Kaiser Willys moved into its current home in Aiken, South Carolina.
