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
Yes that's the one Mike. The story is in the Year of the Jeep DVD.
