About the Military Police 4x4 – WWII Utility Truck:

The 4x4 utility truck was perhaps the most important vehicle distributed by the Allied powers in their war against the Axis. The basis of the vehicle was standardized in July 1941. Standardization allowed for mass production across a variety of manufacturers. Its mass production and ease of maintenance meant it was practically everywhere Allied soldiers were. From the deserts of North Africa to the tropical islands of the Pacific, and onward to Berlin itself, the 4x4 truck epitomized the relentlessness of the Allies in their quest for victory.

Like many workhorse vehicles, 4x4 utility trucks occupied many roles, one of which was use as a Military Police truck. American Military Police did everything to support the Allied advancement. These roles included protection of Allied supply routes, guards at POW encampments and headquarter locations, and infantry support. To keep up in a mobile war where the front line was constantly in flux, the Army’s Military Police Corps used the common 4x4 trucks to make quick work of navigating the battlefield landscape. These trucks could be armed with machine guns or used as a prime mover. Cloth tops and hard tops were optional, but many sported the open air look. The 4x4 truck was a true icon of the war, where its versatility earned the trust of many troops.
