1942 Ford U.S. Army Issue Jeep. On November 10, 1941 Ford was awarded a 14.6 million contract to supply 15,000 vehicles; by the end of the war Ford had built 277,876 GPW's. This one serial #13131, possibly one of the first 15,000 built Army issue. This is the real deal as built by the factory. This Jeep was completely restored recently 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 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.
