Jeep Willys 1943

The Willys MB US Army Jeep (formally the Truck, 1/4 ton, 4×4) and the Ford GPW were manufactured from 1941 to 1945. These small four-wheel drive utility vehicles are considered as the iconic World War II Jeep, and it inspired many similar light utility vehicles. Over the years, the World War II Jeep evolved into the « CJ » civilian Jeep. Its counterpart in the German army was the Volkswagen Kübelwagen first prototyped in 1938, also based on a small automobile, but which used an air-cooled engine and lacked 4 wheels drive.
