Famous Green Machines

Green may not be the most common color for a car, but here’s a collection we’ve compiled of some of the most famous green vehicles in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.

Willy’s MB Army Jeep – This jeep was designed for the US Army in the 1940s and was part of the Allies success in World War II. It is also how the word “jeep” came about because it was designated for Government Purposes aka “GP.” The vehicle was so popular that Willys-Overland designed another version of it for the post-war civilian market.
