The Ford GP is a world war II-based passenger car produced in a small series at the Ford Motor Company, the predecessor of the standard Jeep. Ford's pre-production model went into production as the "GP", with "G" indicating a "Government" contract, and "P" chosen by Ford to designate a car with a wheelbase of 80 in (203 cm). With about 4,458 units built, the Ford GP became not only the most numerous of the pre-standardized jeeps – it was also the first jeep fielded in some numbers to U.S. Army units. The Ford's overall design and quality of construction had advantages over the Bantam and Willys models, but the GP's engine, an adaptation of the Model N tractor engine, was underpowered and insufficiently reliable. Fifty units were built with four-wheel steering, of which four have survived. Most of the Ford GPs were provided to Britain and Russia with about 1,000 GPs for the U.S.
From the world of COBI comes a fantastic model of Ford GP. The characteristic shapes of the historic vehicle have been faithfully mapped using high-quality bricks. Utilizing printed blocks rather than stickers not only means fantastic detail but durability when played with. Rotating wheels equipped with tires are ideal for moving the model during play. Under the tilting hood there is an engine, which, like the interior of the vehicle, can be freely modified according to your needs. A unique figurine of a British Commando is included in the set.
This kit is a fantastic addition to any collection or play room and will delight all age groups.
