Here are two snapshots I found together at a flea markest some years ago. One is a good one of troops loading and the other shows a jeep with supplies being loaded.

I bought a 1942 MB in the late 70's for $600.00 and spent a ton on parts. My nephew has it now, he has more time on his hands to cleen it up and get it running. I had my fun with it now it is his turn. It was a joy to drive but a very rough ride. Y

Wow, you can't count there are three GPA hulls in that photo, the two on the right and the one far left behind the wrecked Dodge. :lol: :lol: ;)

Hi just fooling with you, your right they are a rarity. :thumbsup: perhaps the attached photo will cheer you up. :think:

I came upon this article in the July 21, 1944, Alaska Edition of "Yank" magazine and thought it might be of interest to the many"Jeep-heads" out there in Forum-Land! I'm not sure how clearly the text will copy digitally, but the gist of the article is that GIs in the Aleutians are resorting to their ingenuity to "winterize" their jeeps. The materials used range from plywood and lumber to something called "Masonite" and old tarpaulins. Side and rear windows are improvised from glass panes salvaged from other vehicles and Quonset huts. Also cellophane from gas-mask wrappings and old Japanese X-ray film has been used. Classic examples of improvisation in the field just to make life a little more comfortable in the harsh Aleutian climate.

I learned a long time ago in the service that if you don't have to stand then, sit. If you can sit and lay down then lay down, if you can lay down then go to sleep. Sleep when ever you can because you don't know when the mission will let you sleep again.
