Jeep Restores WW2 Jeep in Honor of Memorial Day


There are few vehicles with as rich of a military history as the Jeep. Its birth was to aid with the war effort during World War 2 and the image of soldiers driving one, filled with officers, or supplies, is the iconic imagery of the war. If there is one vehicle to celebrate Memorial Day and to celebrate those that service, Jeep is the one that makes the most sense. For that reason, workers at the Toledo plant have refurbished an old 1942 Jeep.

Chrysler Toledo Assembly Complex managed to restore a Willys Military Jeep from 1942. It was worked on by the employes and then unveiled during a special ceremony where the Jeep rested under a Jeep signed dedicated to the troops on Expressway Drive in north Toledo.

The Jeep was designed to be the new “work-horse” of the military in a time when technology was replacing many aspects of the military. Jeep has always had a good relationship with the military and is making sure to honor the troops this memorial day.
