I was at the store with my kid the other day. Driving out of the parking lot, I came across this cool little rig.

I got a photo with my '14 Willys and took one of the interior, too.

When I was driving away, the owner was coming out of the store with a big smile and a thumbs-up. "It's a '43!" He yelled to me.

Anyone know any history about it or something similar? I'd like to do some reading about ones from that time.

Well, I have heard of them but I didn't know if someone on the forum would tell me if the owner was yanking my chain or if there was something which was a giveaway for it being a rebuild. It did look rather rough (not that rough is a bad thing).

The owner was pretty happy catching me take a few photos. At least I had an eye to see something rather unique for today's standards.

I just don't see many like this where I live.

Beastmaster has a build thread for his and a few more on WF.

That tow bar on the front is very rare. It was used to put to jeeps together so that they could be used to move a 105 mm big gun. If no truck was around. You need two drivers to push on the gas but only the first one steers.

OP do you live in So.Cal? Pretty sure I have seen that Jeep around my town. The camo seats are what reminds me.
Apologies for the late response. I don't scroll down to the Military section on WF all that often.

I was in San Jose when I saw it.

@Beastmaster - cool rigs you have down there in Arizona

We have also a local military club here. In coop with armed forces this weekend it will be one of the biggest military reenactment events in Europe here near Trencin in Slovakia. Lots of military vehicles from various eras (wheeled and tracked, from WW1 era tank Renault FT17 up to T72M and BVP), lots of WW 2 era US military vehicles, visitors from many countries (Germany, Poland, Czech, Austria, Romania, UK....)
various camps and sites dedicated to various armed conflicts around the world - from medieval ages thru indian wars, US civil war, WW1, Soviet civil war, WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Yugoslavia up to latest conflicts.



is a teaser from last year



and here is a list of registered vehicles. Some of them are pretty rare and only a few exist today.

I know that for you in the US it is on the other side of ocean but maybe somebody finds it interesting
