430: This 1942 GPW was purchased from a former serviceman who bought it as surplus and drove it from his last duty station in Montana to Wisconsin. The Jeep was painted Teal blue, with red wheels and yellow bumpers. Lots of original items were replaced with aftermarket parts. Some are still on her. Engine rebuilt, new brakes, tires, electrics, transfer case, and paint. She’s not pretty, but represents what a wartime jeep would be with field expedient modifications when damaged. It is rigged as a medical stretcher Jeep and uses the markings of the 10th Medical Battalion, 10th Mountain Division. This is of course, like any Jeep, a continuing work in process… She’s a grand old girl….
