UPDATE II: There’s no date on this rare 6×6 Super Jeep postcard that I just picked up from eBay. I imagine this was published around 1942 or 43. It looks like the postcard was based on this press photo at the bottom of this post.

Craig spotted this rare photo. It shows a Ford GP 6×6, which also appears to be called a Ford GP T14 37mm. I’m not clear on how many were made, but this one (or something very similar) can be seen here:

    There was a running, driving MT tug at a small show a buddy put on in Dillon Montana 5 or 6 years ago. Just about the coolest jeep i’ve ever seen.

    I thought that was a spare tire until I read the info on the back of the photo – retractible wheels to prevent bellying. The Captain’s personal project at the base holly shop! lol

    After reading the description of the retractable wheels I can’t see any kind of hub assembly in the photo or postcard.

    Brad, I agree. That narrative on the back was written by a reporter. Perhaps he made an assumption?
    And, to edit my post above “base HOBBY shop”.
