Before the CJ was the military Jeep, the Willy’s models and other older Jeep models. It was the need for a lightweight transport vehicle that could traverse any kind of terrain that led to the creation of the first models called Jeep.
With so many in the field it was said that this Jeep could go anywhere, do anything, and it seemed every GI owned one. The legend continued when if a Jeep ever got stuck it took only four big guys to lift it out of the mire and get it going again. So this page is dedicated to all Jeep Pre CJ Models Before 1942.
