Alan McNeilly shares with us a walkaorund of four Willys Jeeps from the Military Vehicle day at Duxford in 2009. Each of the 4 separate vehicles and the 10cwt trailer warrant an individual article, however I have place all the pictures here for ease of reference.

What a blast Alan! I found one of these in a local wrecking yard earlier this year, but I believe it was a civilian model and passed on it. Looking back I should have just bought it and converted it to an earlier military model.

Darren: Thanks for keeping the Jeeps together in a shared gallery.

Thank you for sharing the great pictures Alan. I wish we had a display like that close to where I live.

It's a common affliction, apparently there is a large organization of Military Vehicle collectors. Looks like there's one in central FL, might not be near you, but, I'll bet it's closer than Duxford.

Hi Gyus,

Glad you found them useful. Duxford Military Vehicles Day is a grand event, I really enjoy the show, lots of vehicles to study and the model show is fun as well, plus you have access to the various air museums if vehcles aren't you're thing.
