This page is about my 1942 Ford GPW and what I've done to it.  It also covers topics related to the WW2 jeep that you may be interested in. I've tried to credit everyone who gave me material to use on this site--so if you find something that is yours and I forgot to credit you--please let me know.

If you have a constructive comment let me know as well. Thanks.

Jeep - MB/GPW

Hey that's my jeep!

The jeep. Is there a finer machine created by man during the twentieth century? I know I can't think of anything. This is a machine that so many people had a hand in designing and creating. Of course top honors should go to American Bantam Car Company where the first vehicle recognizable as a jeep was created. Honors go to Willys Overland for building the most powerful engine used in the wartime jeep. And, of course, Ford Motor Company for designing the grille that later with a small alteration would become famous and instantly recognizable as the jeep. Finally, those engineers, both military and civilian that had a direct hand in molding the specifications that led to the first successful 1/4-ton, Truck 4x4 -- the jeep, a machine forged for war that has excelled in peace for more than 60 years!
