Ford GPW 62754

This GPW rolled of the Louisville, KY, Ford assembly line on or around 7th September 1942. It was shipped to Fort Devens, MA. It also saw service at Houlton, ME, Air Force Base and somehow ended up in Europe during or after WW2. At one point the GPW body was replaced with a late ACMII body. This GPW was completely restored in the spring of 2016 and now represents one of the many Jeeps acquired by the Canadian Armed Forces in 1944. The Canadian Army liberated the coastal region of Belgium in late 1944 and this GPW sports markings of the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders of the 3rd division. The Canadian Defense Forces hood number CM-4242241 is based on numbers seen on period pictures. It is displayed in the local war museum.
