I would bet that's NOT the case for 99.9% of these pictured Jeeps.

First, I would like to think that fellow Jeep owners/Wheelers are not scum bags trying to get over.

Secondly, It appears to me that most of these old jeeps have lived a long, hard life of working on/around the farm, therefore they are/were put to rest in the barn, field, junkyard, etc.

Lastly, you have to remember that everyone doesn't have the "Jeep Bug" like we all do, and additionally a lot folks simply don't have the money to put into restoring a vehicle...therefore it sit's until one of us drive by, see it, and offer some cash.

I heard that the military would cut the Jeeps, that were in action, in half and the only way you could buy them back was in two.

At the end of WWII, Willys won the right to use the Trade Name "Jeep" and produced the M38 Series of Jeeps for the Army during Korea. During Vietnam the M151 Series came out and while everyone in the Army called them "Jeeps" technically they were "Mutts" (A name NEVER used by anyone who used or drove one, but was the Army develpment name, like Humvee was for the Humvee series of Vehicles). The M151 Series of Jeeps were made by Ford. They are unsafe to drive and some years ago you could buy them, but after you bought them, the Government cut them in half so you could not drive them (They were being sold for scrap). So technically they were not jeeps. My bad

Seems that if you're a jeep and somebody straps a plow to your front, you've got one foot in the grave already.
