1943 FORD GTB "BURMA" JEEP
"THE LITTLE WORKHORSE"
- Burma Road, Asia
During WWII, Burma Road was hastily created to safely transfer goods to China. Due to its rough terrain and height, Ford's rare GTB Jeep was the primary mode of transportation for the US Marines and Navy - hence it's nickname, the Burma Jeep. Burma Road no longer exists, nor do most of the jeeps used for travel.
