This is the real deal as built by the factory with some reproduction parts. This Jeep was completely restored with very few miles since. Time and attention to detail makes this WWII Jeep a well documented and very rugged Army vehicle fitted with an axe and shovel. 4 cylinder GPW issued engine 4X4 transfer case and ready for action. Great addition to any authentic Military collection.

One of the most famous military vehicles of World War II, the jeep originated in a prewar US Army requirement for a simple, inexpensive, and robust vehicle for basic utility chores. Its simple design proved to be adaptable to a host of military tasks including use as a scout vehicle, battlefield ambulance, communications vehicle, and staff car. The jeep was hailed as “the savior of World War II.”

The designation “GPW” breaks out as follows: “G” is “Government,” “P” represents “80-inch wheelbase reconnaissance” and “W” for “Willys” as they were the designers of the original blueprints on which the jeeps were based.
