This is my 1942 Ford GPW, Serial Number 76157, date of delivery 10/28/42, MFG Plant: Louisville, KY. It was purchased as a hunting buggy in May of 1976 as my college graduation present. I did a slow restoration to its original configuration and finished in July of 2006. My GPW and I have been in two movies, Red Rose of Normandy and USS Seaviper. We are affiliated with the Road to Victory Military Museum located is Stuart, FL. We open the yearly airshow with a WW2 battle reenactment, do numerous parades, shows and displays for various veteran and government entities throughout Florida. We support many military fundraisers throughout the year such as Honor Flight, Supplies for the Troops, Veteran organizations, etc. We have a Boy Scout Venture Crew 2804 that Reenacts the WW2 Soldier.
