Living the Jeep Life

Harold Stephens in his new Willys Jeep 4x4 in front of the capitol in Washington, D.C. - prior to sending it overseas on his world-wide adventure.

The Jeep brand has always been marketed as a vehicle that enables the driver to "Go Anywhere, Do Anything. Harold Stephens took that spirit and lived it to the fullest. Stephens was in the Marines and stationed in China during World War II when his life-long adventure with Jeep vehicles began. He and a buddy "borrowed" a Jeep and explored along the Great Wall of China.

Stephens and his bright-red Willys Jeep 4x4 traveled the globe through Southeast Asia, Iran, Afghanistan, Russia. His collective tales were sold to Argosy Magazine and later printed in his many books.
