Willys MA Grille
Drawing of the grille or brush guard of Willys-Overland’s MA. The drawing is copyrighted by o5m6.de and is used here with permission. Willys contracted to supply 1500 MA’s as their version of the pre-standardized jeep. It took Willys many months to produce an acceptable pilot model. This caused delays in production of the MA and is one reason there are so few MAs.
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.
