    US Willys MB Jeep US Army Air Force, Iowa "Follow Me" (1:48)

    Item # HG1604

    Wanting to replace their outdated light vehicles the U.S. Military received three tenders.
    Bantam Car Company was the initial winner but couldn’t meet demand so the job went to
    Willys-Overland Motors. Willys was to take the best design features of the three greater
    demand the Ford Motors Company was asked to build a similar vehicle. During World
    War II there was a total of 647,870 Jeeps produced by the three companies; Willys-
    Overland produced 362,841 of them.


    “Follow Me” jeeps were used to help with control of ground traffic at airfields. If an aircraft
    landed at an unfamiliar airfield it would require guidance to the various runways, taxiways
    and parking areas. Sometimes local aircraft needed their services to reach the correct
    assigned location. Once the aircraft had slowed to a safe speed these brightly colored
    jeeps would drive in front with a large “Follow Me” sign attached to the rear and would
    proceed to the assigned spot for that aircraft.
