From The Archives #152

Now that is one way to lube the undercarriage. From the San Francisco Library Archives comes this picture of soldiers lifting a Willys MA (thanks Josh!).

Here’s the text that accompanies the archive: “Dwarfed by the sprawling expanse of the Golden Gate Bridge in the background and the lifting power of a few soldiers, two of the new jeeps to be used for military traffic duty are shown at Crissy Field. Notice, at right, how the troops don’t seem to be straining hard as they raise the car. Handles for lifting the little war machines can be seen on the jeep at left. Three dozen of the vehicles were issued to the 524th Military Police Battalion.”
