Photos are from the article.  I love the mounted 30. cal, most likely for show than any expectation of actually needing to use it.

That is not Patton's. A friend of mine has pictures of Patton's car and it had armor plates welded on the bottom and in the quarter panels. The deck lid was also welded up with armor. This car has none of that. He also told me this same car was for sale a few years ago with no registration number and now has it.

Again, this is what a friend told me who even has photos for the archives of the armor being added per Patton's request.

Whether the provenance is there or not it’s still great looking.

How can you determine without question that Patton used this vehicle?

Patton's late WWII Jeep is at the Quartermaster Museum at Ft. Lee VA.  It still has the Mercedes seat that he found more comfortable.   And yes .... they have complete provenance   The curator gave me a tour which included an up close look at the Jeep.

 

Great museum ... I recommend a visit.

Photo of General Patton's WWii Jeep ... this came from the Army directly to the Army Quartermaster Museum ... no third party involved.

I believe this command car was auctioned awhile ago, and was lacking provenance. I'll edit this post if I find the link to the last time it was auctioned.
