Ford GPW 1943 - Greetings from Salzburg - Austria! Bought my Willys / GPW mixture in 2001, not perfect but almost conditions. During the last years I added several items to it like A-Frame, Radio, M1 Garand, some stuff from the GI´s, during the winter I´d like to mount the Capstan Winch that I recently bought, a lot of the things on it lead to the Signal Corps (Signal Flags, Telephones, wiring tools, ... ). I think there is space for a lot of more adds on it, like the 30. or 50.cal perhaps. Our best trip was D-Day 2004 in Normandy, very impressing to see! Two years ago we did a long trip trough the Alps between Austria and Italy - that was really cool - only old Jeeps. This summer we had also a small trip trough the mountains - no Jeep was \"younger\" than 1955 - that was cool!
This is my GPW mod 1942 with all the gear in pretty good shape. The story as from the time in the force, I don\'t know. But its civilian life started in 1950. It was then bought by a construction company up in the far both of Norway. Its \" JOB\" was to transport the bosses long into tunnels build for electrical water pipes. Further it was bought by a county up in the far north, fire department, chief vehicle. I bought it back in the year 2002. Now I use it of fun here in the Oslo area and in the mountains, off road. It works like a clock! Very popular with wife, children, grand children and Ellen...earlier Bill! Bill enjoyed it very much! <br><br> Best regards, Anders Hammer
