When Men were MEN and Jeeps were JEEPS

The Versatile AMERICAN Jeep
It is very interesting and a part of history that most of us never saw.  When Men were Men and Jeeps were Jeeps

The Transmission

Early Willys MB with mud flotation adaptors

Just for fun

Great piece of equipment to tow behind your Willys MB

Jeep warehouse, location unknown

Did you order a jeep?

Now that’s a kit I would like to have.

I think the Roy Rogers show bought this version as Nelly Bell.

Bullet holes in the windshield of this Jeep are a testament to the faithful service of the Medics of the 84th Division as they evacuate wounded soldiers in their makeshift Jeep ambulance.

Even then they needed armed guards to protect their Jeeps.
