The Chester Krause Military Jeep Collection - Military Trader/Vehicles

When the founder of Krause Publications, "Chet" Krause sold his collections of historic military vehicles, a ripple went through the hobby. "Could Chet be getting out?" was the question most often heard. Those who know Chet, though, know that he does everything with a plan.

His plan at the time: To establish a "Jeep study collection" which would contain an example of each major step in the evolution of the U.S. military 1/4-ton 4x4 truck. Three years later, Chet proudly displayed the collection of Jeeps. Military Vehicles Magazine is honored to share the collection with its readers.
