Cj7 Military jeep

Before opening link think of these questions

What World Wars were taking place in the 1980's
If a vehicle is a 1980 CJ7, how can it be built in the early 1900.

I saw a 2003 green Vespa Scooter for sale, wander if that was used to storm the beaches of Normandy

I couldn't resist.
I had to email the seller.
************************
Is this item considered a Military jeep only because of its color or did it actually do a little time over seas.

I guess the guy don't realize that CJ stands for "Civilian Jeep". Nice attempt that some sucker will probibly fall for.

The military DID use commercially-produced CJ's of various models as MP patrol vehicles on domestic military bases. That does NOT make them "Military Jeeps" any more than the 1980 Chrysler K-car that the GSA purchased for fleet use that General Whatshisname drove back and forth to work at Fort Bragg is a "military car."

Sweet I wonder if my CJ7 carried General Patton into battle

That's pretty funny!
I have seen Patton in some pictures in a WW-II production Jeep,

I like the quote from Stalin when He saw the first Jeeps in WW-II.
("There is no way that Germany can defeat a country where every soldier has his own marvelous transportation vehicle".)
Stalin was actually under the impression that we were issuing a Jeep to every solider at the time!

The 'Jeep' was actually considered a 'Secret Weapon' by Churchill, which IMMEDIATELY started a research team to make a 'British' version, which turned into 'Land Rover'...

Russia is still using the basic 'Jeep' design for it's light vehicles to this day,
And now the shortcomings of the 'HUMVEE' are becoming quite apparent, the military is actually going back to a 'Fast Attack' vehicle that is pretty much a turbo 4 cylinder diesel Jeep!

Just plain a good idea that is still being made by the USA to this day!
And there aren't ANY BETTER guys to design, modify, develop ideas to keep it the best overland transportation in the world than the 'Tinkers' in the USA hammering on them right now!


------------------------------------------

I was in the military during the late '70s and early 80s and we used a LOT of CJ Jeeps all over the world.
The CJ was pretty much standard transportation from military motor pools in Central/South America, and if you have a look at the Viet-Nam pictures, you will see CJs all over the Air Force bases.

The M-151 (Mutt) was the 'Official' combat issue, but the CJs were used a TON in transportation motor pools.
Several countries still use TJ's for transportation, one of the biggest export markets for Chrysler is military & police use to other countries.

On the other hand, that DOES NOT look like any military motor pool Jeep I've ever seen,
Looks like your standard '80 CJ to me,
And the likely hood of getting one of the foreign jeeps back into the country, then finding it in that good of condition is almost nill...

Foreign militaries drive them to DEATH, they salvage them once they are no longer viable, so you just don't find military purchased CJs out of the county, they are hard to import because of emissions laws,
And I would say that is just a plain old, run of the mill '80 CJ that just happens to be green.

And I bet this guy mouthing off about Jeeps being made from the beginning of the 1900s never heard of the Bantam Car Company, Doesn't have a clue it's a WW-II creation, or how weak those old, mass produced Military production Jeeps were.

Maybe this clown should do some research so he knows what he's talking about... What do you think?

Actually the british military version of the jeep was the Austin Champ during WWII





I only know this because I almost bought one in tulsa to restore but decided it would be too much work/money with importing most of the parts from overseas. I believe the Australian army of the day used them as well.

Either way....that CJ7 DEFINITELY isnt military..
