Great video Aamir.
It takes guts to go off-roading in such terrain without an anti roll bar.
Now one knows what a go-anywhere vehicle means.!!

My village is just about 10kms from the India-pakistan border in Jalalabad(ferozepure) and that place in the pictures(in the second set) is just like that,so you can understand if i get too nostalgiatic about it. A nice jeep indeed. I do check out the Islamabad jeepers site sometimes so i do know that the offroading scene is a lot better there than it can ever be here. I can see some parts from the M38/A1 on your jeep and no-doubt they might be using a lot of parts from those jeeps indeed. But do tell me, do use guys still have a few M38's coming into the army suplus yards, or are they all but pulled apart by greedy junk dealers??? Because there thats the story, you hardly see ex-army jeeps now-a-days. the last army Willys CJ-3b's(pre 75) were auction about an year or so about, and so did the Jongas. All we have coming into the yard are newer vehicles, who's performace againt the old vehicles, is something i really cannot understand(i mean, what is the puny little 2.5l diesel engine of an Army MM540/550 be againt 4l petrol Nissan patrol Jonga-62model, be). Every now in between we do have one of the Gaz69 and Gaz469 Russian 4x4 coming into the surplus yards(how we came to have Russian 4x4's in Army usage is beyond me, and i have never actually seen the army use those, but they have been coming to yards both in pathankot and delhi, dressed in the army colours, with full insignia and honours...lol). You tell me, you guys might be having a blast, because i heard the army there uses Land-rovers-just like those of the British forces.
Regards,
Bikram Singh Sandhu

Nothing much thought, the wheels belong to a M38A1 and so do the hooks at the front. Even though i cannot make out so well in the pictures, but the black-out lamps do look like the water-proof versions of the M38/M38A1 series, but this also gives your jeep a unique form of its own. A beautiful jeep it is, for sure.

Aamir bhai the pics and the vids of your GPW are simply amazing..
the condition and the engine hum of your ride astonishes me and hope that you are able to provide all of us in Team-Bhp more superb vids and pics for years to come..
Great to have you in T-Bhp with your Ford GPW as it would be one of the 227,896 ever produced by Ford..cheers:
Also saw that you said in an earlier post that you think that Ford GPW is the best off-roading jeep, will have a poll for Ford Jeeps, so that you could this time vote for your machine..
