The awesome Jeeps we used were a ’42 Willys and a ’42 Ford. Savage’s son Matt owns a 4x4 shop in England (, and they found a couple of well-worn jeeps in California, shipped them to the U.K., and refurbished them for desert use. Rebuilt engines were sourced, electrics redone, brakes and bearings serviced, and luscious desert tan paint sprayed over the jeeps inside and out. Although converted to 12-volt and sporting Michelin tires, these jeeps were still close to bone stock.
