Wood you believe that they didn't have a Would preservative back then?
I'm sure that if they made them out of would they wood have lasted long enough to finish the war.
I guess they were afraid of G.I.s using them for fire would.

One of the wood jeeps is thought to have made it to Hollywood (afer DTC?) and used in some wartime movies; unknown if it somehow survived.

At least someone with a rusted out jeep tub can now make one out of wood and claim it's a prototype.
