Hello, nice find!

Je suis en France aussi, et ma GPW a des lames avant Willys.
Je vois que les tiennes sont à priori Ford, si jamais un echange te dit...

I would like to find a Jeep in as 'not in very good shape' as yours.

I used to work in Champagne, in Avize, in the 1970s. There is a private airfield on the plain below the Cote, in the direction of Chalon. Two Jeeps were used there as aircraft tugs. I have often wondered if they are still there!

Hello Florent,

I think the plates under the rear sides of your jeep very possibly had some type of recoil-less rifle mounted there.
They look like solid bolt up plates for one !


Best Regards,

Raymond
