This jeep was not actually found in the box in that condition but restored, knocked down, and put in the box as a display at a MVPA convention a few years ago by the Georgia chapter of the Military Vehicle Preservation Association. I believe that they won an award for it; I vaguely remember the chapter's members posed around it in a photo in Army Motors, one of the two MVPA publications.

There used to be a pretty hefty reward for anyone who actually could produce a jeep still in its shipping crate in CKD condition (Complete Knock Down). NOBODY every claimed it despite the fact that everyone you know claims that a girlfriend's aunt's brother's cousin's friend has "three of them in his barn".

Check out the huts in the background. My neighbor has 4 of them in his back yard full of military vehicles.

The first Army Jeep was this 1940 Willys-Overland Quad. The concept was originated by American Bantam, but the Willys Quad design was selected over Bantam's Blitz Buggy and Ford's Pigmy, also competitors.

Willys also won rights to the Jeep trademark after the war. The name "Jeep" apparently was derived from GP, Army for "General Purpose." Or it might have been named for a character in the Popeye comic strip popular at that time.

The Willys "Quad" name had been used on the first four-wheel-drive built by Jeffery, which became Nash, during World War I.

'Gotta comment on this one too. GP was Ford's jeep that preceded the GPW. In Ford's internal nomenclature, G stood for Government project and P stood for 80 inch wheelbase reconnaissance car. General purpose is commonly mistaken as the term that GP was short for. Stop the madness! :banghead:
American Bantam in Butler, PA built the first vehicle in a design contest that eventually resulted in the vehicle we know today as the jeep. Willys-Overland got into the competition later, just like Ford. Checker, the cab company, (and possibly Chevrolet) tried to get into this act, but their efforts were stillborn and info on these two makers' involvement is just now coming to light.

I've seen some collectors also sport German vehicles such as the ones here for WWII reenactments. Does anyone know who was manufacturing these back then?

This German soldier is very cautious, he obviously does not want to stick his head out of the trench.

I think the MFG for the vehicles were German :shock: .

I think the optics were browning??

But I didn't check on the net to be sure.

They were Mercedes, BMW, OPAL and Fiat...
maybe others...

The Sherman tanks were also known as "Widow Maker", "Death Trap" and what ever else described almost certain death... the Panzer's ate them like candy. Our tank rounds would bounce off the Tiger Tanks.. (this is what I've heard)

The guy with the periscope is smart... It was almost certain death to show your head above the trench during the day time.
I used them in Korea as well but for other reasons.

I know it's a M4 but I'm guessing you want us to be even more specific so I'm guessing M4A1E8. The "Easy Eight" was the subject of a nice write up in Army Motors a few years ago. On my Phone/PDA the pic is kinda small, so I can't get much detail but it also looks like this model has the cast hull and glacis plate rather than the riveted version.

Get some! Oooooorah!

I don't remember which one you are talking about. :bore: I looked at the album for that event and I don't see any. :lol:

Are you sure it was not you taking it with the donated -2 megapixel camera and the lighter for the flash on that day? :2thumup:

M-151A2 set up as TOW missle platform. In this configuration it is called an M-825.

This photo was taken in 1941 at New River, North Carolina during testing of the Bantam BRC-40 jeep, the forerunner of the Willys MB and Ford GPW jeeps that became the World War II standard. This photo of the Bantam has all four wheels off the ground (six if you count the towed 37mm Antitank gun), the inspiration for the "Flying Jeep" poster and similar depictions.

Original caption: "Bantam car in mid-air."
