Military Vehicle Preservation Association (MVPA)
Established in 1976, the non-profit MVPA is dedicated to providing an international organization for military vehicle enthusiasts, historians, preservationists and collectors interested in the acquisition, restoration, preservation, safe operation and public education of historic military transport.
With 8,000 members worldwide, including nearly 100 affiliate groups from around the world, the MVPA connects historic military vehicle enthusiasts to a network of collectors and restorers who are eager to assist with vehicles, parts, and information.
MVPA members receive four issues of the internationally-acclaimed Army Motors and six issues of the information-rich Supply Line each year. Members also have access to the MVPA’s online discussion board, technical archives, vehicle advisors, and more. Vital reference materials—including hundreds of books and manuals, and thousands of original vehicle blueprints—are available through the MVPA Supply Room and Historical Archives.
The MVPA’s Annual Convention is the largest international military vehicle display and swap meet in the United States. Each summer, fellow historic military vehicle (HMV) enthusiast from around the world gather to view many of the finest vehicles from all eras, talk with the experts, find the right parts, and renew friendships.
Additionally, the MVPA—through dedicated members—supports pro-HMV legislation that affects the availability and operation of historic military vehicles and parts. Enjoy the hobby and preserve history for future generations by joining the MVPA!
