jeep heritage expo

Celebrating 75 years of Jeep, Omix-ADA gathered hundreds of Jeep enthusiasts on July 16 to honor its history. The first annual Jeep Heritage Expo kicked off with hundreds of custom Jeeps arranged in different Show & Shine categories along with Omix-ADA’s own 30 rare Jeeps ranging from very early 1941 prototypes to the latest 2016 Wranglers.

Omix-ADA rolled out the red carpet for attendees, inviting them to get an exclusive look at its extensive historic Jeep collection. Highlights of the collection include one of 100 original 1941 Bantam BRC models in existence – to which Jeep owes its historic lineage; a World War II-era Ford GPA amphibious Jeep intended to cross rivers and lakes; and a rare 1946 Willys CJ-2A Jeep originally customized with farming implements. The farm Jeep is equipped with a front PTO winch, an engine driven air compressor, a rear towing boom, a Newgren buzz saw with table, and dual tires for improved stability in the dirt.
