M201 - DGA

Very occasionally the odd jeep has turned up at auction since the 'final' sale of jeeps in 2002. The example below belonged to the DGA (Délégation Générale pour l'Armement), a branch within the armée de terre and appeared in 2006.

The description given was not quite accurate in that it was not fitted with a diesel engine just the standard Willys petrol engine. (photo & details: Domaines)

This M201 has ended up in the UK with its new owner Paul Leyster who sent me the photos below of the vinyl stickers used by the DGA in the place of the standard tricolour.

Paul intends to keep the jeep in its fire service livery and I look forward to adding it to the owners gallery when he has cleaned it up.
