75 Years Old Today

Post by AFB_GPW » Thu Oct 19, 2017 4:52 pm

Our 1942 Ford GPW S/N 72105 turned 75 today. My father bought this Jeep in 1964 and has had it ever since. We have had a lot of fun with this Jeep and continue to preserve it. Pictured with it is my father.

Happy Birthday to the jeep, and what a magnificent workshop, and the contents (4 jeeps) look good. If i had a workshop like that i wouldnt need a house. :D
