                        Ford GPA

The Ford GPA ‘Seep’ (Government ‘P’ Amphibious, where ‘P’ stood for its 80-inch wheelbase) was an amphibious version of the WWII Ford GPW Jeep. Unlike the jeep, the seep was not a successful design; it was considered too slow and heavy on land, and lacked sufficient seagoing abilities in open water. The design features of the much larger and more successful DUKW amphibious truck were used on the GPA.

After having commissioned Willys, Ford and Bantam to build the first 4,500 jeeps (1500 each) in March 1941, the US Motor Transport Board set up a project under the direction of the National Defense Research Committee (NDRC) to be designated “QMC-4 1/4 Ton Truck Light Amphibian”.
