Default Willys MA

Hi
Is that the Willys MA that Tom Rolfe? helped to restore ? If it is the same vehicle , I believe it was found in a orchard in NSW some years ago, it had been made into a orchard tractor with a articulating trailer . We do know that when the US forces arrived here in Aust. early 42, they did bring Ford GP's and Bantams etc ..... some of these vehicles were even repaired in Melbourne . Very few of these early Jeeps remained behind after the yanks left . A Ford GP did turn up up near Yea in Vic. the early 1970's ....... because it was such a odd ball thing, nobody wanted it at the time
