Servicing and Maintenance
As a battlefield vehicle these Jeeps were designed to be maintained and serviced with minimal knowledge and tools and the majority of tasks can easily be completed by the owner or classic friendly garage.
With a large following these vehicles are supported by numerous specialists throughout the country so help is never far away.


Spare Parts
Almost everything is still available for the Jeeps, either as a new authentic part or as new old stock.
Many of the parts are much cheaper to buy than you would expect making this one of the cheapest classic vehicles to run and maintain


Insurance and Road Tax
This vehicle will easily qualify for cheap classic insurance and most drivers ought to be able to insure it for less than £100 per year on a classic policy.
It also benefits from being in the "Historic " taxation class with the DVLA meaning the tax disc is free.

Ford GPW Jeep History
Willys designed and started manufacture of their famous MB wartime jeep. 
As they were unable to supply enough vehicles for the war effort the US Army also instructed Ford to also manufacture the Jeep. 
These Ford Jeeps were known as the Ford GPW
These Ford GPW Jeeps are more sought after than the Willys as the Ford GPW was only manufactured during WW2 so by default it has to be an original wartime vehicle. 
Willys however continued with Jeep production after WW2 so unfortunately there are many non WW2 vehicles masquerading as original wartime vehicles.



Location
This Jeep is located near Chelmsford in Essex.
