From the first Jeep to almost the last.

Go HERE for main page.

Go HERE for Jeep album.

Enjoy

P.S. I haven't had the chance to update the text for each Jeep but the placard has the info for each Jeep. The Jeep following the placard/information sign is the one described.

Bet U never seen a Jeep like this. Only 500 and only proto types. Only three they know of and two have been restored.

The single tire was a proto type for the Army, they never adopted it. seems it would get stuck by the front tire in the mud and wouldn't go any where.
