Buying an

Ex-army Vehicle

The US Army Willys and Ford 'Jeeps' are a great vehicle to own and are often the first ex-army vehicle that many military hobbyists get to buy. Their relatively small size means that they'll fit in a single garage and the cost of those all-important spares is not too high. Interest in military vehicles is as high as it's ever been and the demand for spares and accessories means that just about every part is available and easy to find thanks to the web.

What are they like to drive?

When you drive a WW2 Jeep, you realise how insulated from the outside world you are in a modern car. With the hood and windscreen down, it feels more like you are sitting on top of the vehicle rather than in it.

The jeep is very 'hands on' and needs input all the time. It lets you know this with a level of feedback that you just don't get in a power steering, air conditioned, seat-cushioned, sound-proofed modern car.

Start the engine (by pushing a button with your foot) and after releasing the handbrake (in the dash) you start off in first gear (where second is usually!). You get road noise from the tyres, the engine makes a loud whining sound, everything vibrates and rattles and you feel every bump and pothole through the steering wheel. People wave and smile at you - even in England!

The side valve power plant, the 2.2 litre, 4 cylinder 'Go-Devil' engine is (comparatively) economical and like the rest of the jeep is easy to fix. Compared to a modern car, the jeep is simplicity itself to work on as everything was designed for ease of access and replacement. There's loads of room in the engine bay, you can crawl underneath it to fix things and as long as you are a reasonable competent home mechanic or hobbyist, you'll find that there are not many jobs that you can't cope with.

The Strategic Steam Reserve - Myth or Reality?

Lines of slighty dusty steam engines stored and ready for when the balloon goes up! The hundreds of UK steam locomotives kept in storage since the sixties in case the Nuclear balloon went up. After the Soviet ICBM's had finished dropping their estimated total of 2000 Megatons TNT equivalent, a battered but uncowed Britain would emerge victorious from the fallout in the shape of Thomas the tank engine pulling a trainload of ministry of supply corned beef...

buy a piece of history has seen action in north africa,was in the fourth battalion 7th division
NO RUST
in good mechanical condition very soild jeep driven regulary
price 15,0000

This is a very nice accurate depiction of an SAS jeep as seen in the North African campaigns of 1940-43.

The jeep is a Ford, 1942, it has many complete period accessories including a 30 cal (gas firing gun) a drivers mounted (gas firing) Bren gun and a pair of Vickers K guns(repro). War time dated jerry cans, theodolite, period tent, shovel etc.

Willy's/Ford Jeep - The first Jeeps to arrive in the North African theatre were those issued to Stirling's SAS (which had relied on LRDG transport until they were equipped with their own Jeeps in early 1942). After the SAS had to abandon some Jeeps in the desert, these were salvaged and repaired by LRDG patrols; soon after, all patrols were equipped with their own Jeeps as replacements for the 15cwt Chevrolets. The legendary desert performance and reliability of the Jeeps made them ideal for LRDG patrols. Some of LRDG's Jeeps were later used in the Balkan and in Italy (where the patrol trucks were of little use).
In contrast to all the other vehicles, the Jeeps required very few modifications to be fit for desert use;

The jeeps were stripped of all non-essential parts including the windscreen, most of the radiator grille bars and even sometimes the front bumper to increase the effective load carrying capacity of the vehicle. Thus the large amount of fuel and water needed for fast long-range raids could be carried avoiding the need for slower support vehicles. A water condensing unit was fitted to the front to reduce loss from the radiator which would otherwise have had to be topped up from the limited drinking water supplies. The jeeps also carried sand mats, metal wheel channels, radio equipment and large quantities of ammunition.

The jeeps were heavily armed with combinations of both Browning and Vickers K machine guns. The ex-aircraft Vickers weapons were generally mounted in pairs and a total of up to five machine guns were carried on some vehicles. The effectiveness of this armament firing a mix of ball, armour-piercing and tracer shells can be judged from one assault on an airfield where 12 aircraft were destroyed in a five minute raid. With all guns blazing a single SAS jeep could deliver an impressive 5000 rounds per minute! The net result was that over 400 aircraft had been destroyed on the ground by November 1942.
