When you’re talking about military vehicles, there’s none more famous than the Jeep. Originally a robust vehicle for basic utility chores, the Jeep’s simple and adaptable design proved to be indispensable to the military. This particular 1943 Ford GPW Navy Jeep is an especially attractive and well-kept example of the U.S. military’s favorite ride.

The four-wheel-drive Willys classic is dipped in U.S. Navy light blue livery and sports markings for the U.S.S. Saipan CVL 48, which was a light aircraft carrier commissioned in 1946 and served until 1970. The 1943 Jeep design had a notable visual change with its nine-slot stamped grill, replacing the Willys slat grill from previous models. This Ford GPW has a 134 cubic-inch L-head inline four-cylinder engine with 60 bhp and a three-speed manual transmission. It also comes with a rear-mounted spare and jerry can, in addition to a side-mounted shovel and axe. If you’re looking for a pristine classic military ride, this Jeep is sure to exceed your expectations.
