excuse me, i noticed you use the word Gp several times to indicate the Ford GPW, i just want to say tht it's GPW and not ford GP, cause the ford gpw is the amphibious model, also known as SEEP (sea-jeep), thx for reading

Your statements are not correct.

Ford GP = the original Ford Jeep design;
Ford GPW = (basically) Willys Jeep design built by Ford;
Ford GPA = Ford Amphibious Jeep.

Hi All,

To explain further, the term GP came from "G"=Goverment and "P"=standard Ford nomenclature for a 80" wheelbase.

See here a Ford GP



This was the first jeep to be used by the Dutch KNIL and other Dutch overseas troops, in WW 2.

Amnyone else has some B/W photo's of these in Dutch service ?? (have some I can post later, but are quite well known)
