1942 Photo of Jeep Stuck in Sand on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

UPDATE: Barney Goodwin wanted to note that jeeps get stuck in duck ponds, too…

He writes, “While in the Navy in Stockton, I bought this 43 GPW from a farmer up in Anderson CA. After a paint using the local USMS detachment’s supply, we did a mechanical refresh, rollbar, and some stuff and took it our to test it at the base duck pond which I managed.

Got stuck in the marsh near it and had to pull it out with a friend’s M151. Fun times! Happy New Year!”
