Ford GPW Jeep History
Willys designed and started manufacture of their famous MB wartime jeep.
As they were unable to supply enough vehicles for the war effort the US Army also instructed Ford to also manufacture the Jeep.
These Ford Jeeps were known as the Ford GPW.
The Ford GPW Jeeps are more sought after than the Willys as the Ford GPW was only manufactured during WW2 so by default it has to be an original wartime vehicle.
Willys however continued with Jeep production after WW2 so unfortunately there are many non WW2 vehicles masquerading as original wartime vehicles.
Jeep is advertised on behalf of one of our good friends and is NOT located at Land Rover Centre.
