My 1944 MB

Photographs of Colin Macgregor Stevens' 1944 Willys MB. This jeep was built in Toldeo Ohio, USA  c. 1944-45. The Original USA number appears to be 20737814. The original serial number and date are not known as the Norwegian military issued their own vehicle serial number.  It served in the British Army apparently, apparently as a wireless jeep in the Airborne. It also served as an air force jeep (dark blue paint was found on most of it), possibly as a navy jeep (grey paint), as a Norwegian Army Engineers jeep, and as a Norwegian Army Technical Corps jeep is Oslo, Norway. It was sold surplus out of the Arsenal of the West Coast, Voss, Norway in early 1985. The Norwegian military registration number was 5583.

As I had the jeep at the Abbotsford Air Show, I have added in a few photos of some nice aircraft
