Ford GP Grille

Ford GP Grille

Second in the series of WW2 jeep grilles is the Ford GP.

Drawing of the grille or brush guard of the Ford Motor Company’s GP. The drawing is copyrighted by o5m6.de and is used here with permission. Ford’s entry in the pre-standardized jeeps. The Quartermaster Corp actually intended to award the standardization contract for 16,000 vehicles to Ford. The QMC was over-ruled and the contract was awarded to the low bidder-Willys.

Check out the excellent work of Oliver at http://www.o5m6.de/ for even more WW2 vehicles. The emphasis is on Russian vehicles but also includes foreign designed vehicles as used by the Russians. It’s a great site, check it out.

Grills? I think about jeep grilles when I go on a picnic.
