Jeep Junkyard in Djibouti

• CATEGORIES: Features, GPW (Ford MB), MB • TAGS: .

It sure looks like there are some parts worth saving.  This was taken in The Republic of Djibouti, Africa, and posted on Flickr.  After some searching, I discovered these are probably Hotchkiss (see m201 website).

    Is it sad to say that I would do anything to have my backyard look like this?? Wait, i meant to say it WILL look like this someday! 😉

    Hello, I was in the French Navy located in Djibouti. Most of the French Jeeps have been mixed with WWII Willys or Ford jeeps. There is probably a lot of original parts … but I am not sure if the trip worth it unless you plan to spend some time there to discover this very interesting country.

    Hi Mickael,

    Thanks for the update. Seeing that must have been very interesting! I’m sure it wouldn’t be worth the money for the trip, but the experience would be priceless 🙂

    I wonder when this photo was taken. I do remember seeing lots of similar French Army jeep parts at Sarafan’s in the mid 1980’s, maybe these were sold to them way back then? They might be amoung us and we don’t even know it !
