Commissioned by the US government in October 1941, the Ford GPW was manufactured to help meet the demand of the newly introduced Willys MB. Approximately 280k examples were built, and this example was refinished in olive drab green with US Armystyle graphics as part of the aforementioned refurbishment. The truck has a fold-down windshield, a rear jerrycan holder, and a shovel and axe mounted to the left side.
