Two reasons from my understandng:

1. Money...it is cheaper to destroy/leave them there, than it is to bring them back to the States.

2. Willys had a contract with the Government, stating that they would not auction them upon the end of the war, as it would have greatly hurt their sales.

Not too sure how well they would have survived their time submerged in salt water. I have seen Heeps from the North East, and they don't look good...

Thanks for sharing. I have seen that caption, along with several other pertaining to this kind of stuff.
