Jeeps in the Philippines

When they realized there was a market for these Jeeps they repainted them and put them up for sale.  Oddly the only “olive drab” paint they could find was leftover Japanese WW2 paint.

Back in WW2 era, the locals were stealing Jeeps,  so the GI Joe solution was to drill the hood number into the rear fenders of the Jeeps. Then the locals started filling the holes and drilling new holes.

 After that the GI’s started tipping their Jeeps up on their sides at night, because the Filipinos were too small to topple them back over.
