The 1941 Ford GP was Ford’s second prototype vehicle developed for the war effort. Small in size and light in weight, these new vehicles were designed to carry out a number of duties including quick troop transport, towing anti-tank guns and other light auxiliary and artillery pieces. Highly maneuverable and versatile in operation, these vehicles proved worthy right from the start.
