And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
You don't see many test drivers wearing a tie and oxford shirt anymore.ReplyDelete
The obstacles constructed for the testing of the Jeep would break many (most?) of the production 4x4 light trucks made in the last 50 years.ReplyDelete
Certainly my 1989 Power Wagon could survive the courses but not at the speed required. Survivability would come only after reworking suspension and other elements through aftermarket components.
The Willys Jeep retains its position as king of the hill in production off road vehicles.
Yes, actually, my 1989 is indeed a Power Wagon. I bought it from the government.Delete
Don't flip it! We had 5 MRC-107A's (M151 with a radio pallet installed) in our radio shop. A troop in the shop flipped one, was lucky that the radio pallet acted as a roll bar. It was a big problem with M151A1's.ReplyDelete
Oops,1940 it's not an M151. Never mind.Delete
Pretty sure that's a Bantam Reconnaissance Car, not a Willys. That curved front grill...ReplyDelete
Bantam basically invented what would become the Jeep but Willys and Ford got the production contracts just because they could handle the volume. Bantam made lots of trailers instead.
Looks like it's the Willys Quad Prototype Jeep.ReplyDelete
