Five Star Jeep w/ Trimmings

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos • TAGS: .

This video of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, Gen. Omar N. Bradley, Gen. George S. Patton, and others, includes a five star jeep with a rear extension and other mods. There’s also some graphic and grim footage as the men explore a former camp. This video was shared on Facebook a few days ago on the G503 page.

At the 18 second mark is a photo of the fronts of several jeeps, underscoring that multiple jeeps had been modified. At the 2:28 mark is a front look at two jeeps. For the next twenty seconds the video shows the jeeps driving away.

    I have photos of a few MBs/GPWs with extended rears. Whether they are ones shipped back from Europe or not I couldn’t say.

    I thought it was kind of cool that there were a 1-5 star General(s)in the same shot. I haven’t seen that much brass at one time except when the Russians pulled a mobilization exercise many years ago but long after this film. Thanks for posting these bits of history.
