Not really about the Jeep per se, but two facts that I thought interesting...
-The Americans had so many Jeeps that the Germans believed that every GI got one standard issue (Nearly 700,000 were produced!)
- One Jeep received the Purple Heart (supposedly, was unable to confirm) after surviving two beach landings.
- In an incident in Belgium, three undercover Germans were stopped by a sentry when he noticed the Colonel was in the back seat. When asked how he knew, he stated that if it HAD been Americans, the infantryman would have been in the back seat, and the Colonel would have been driving.
- The original Willy's "Quad" prototype had 60 bhp and 105 lb/ft torque.
Hope you find some interest in those, but if not, I did, so it's a win either way :D
