Midwest Military is a supplier and manufacturer of collector military vehicle parts. We cater to WWII and Korean era Dodge-built vehicles, Korean era Jeep, and a few other WWII vehicles. We are not a WWII Jeep dealer, although, a lot of the WWII parts we have will interchange.

If you are looking for quality parts that fit the first time, see our PARTS pages. We have NOS and quality reproduction parts. Each list is only a partial inventory. We are always adding things. If you don't see what you need, just drop us a note, call or fax. If we don't have it, we may know who does. We accept VISA and MasterCard to make ordering easier. And we ship all over the world.



This started out as a one-man hobby turned business. It has now grown into a three-man operation. I have not let the business overtake the inital focus ... "the hobby". I am still an avid collector and restorer. Because of this, we started the fabrication side of the business. I found the quality of some of the parts available to be inferior. That combined with the depletion of NOS parts supplies and continued demand has made this all possible. I invested in the machines and made the quality of these reproductions the #1 priority. The thanks belongs to all our customers. We are always looking for new parts to manufacture, so if you have an idea, contact us.




The new facility is over 8,000 square feet, so shopping is now possible. You can actually see the parts now. Customers are welcome to stop by. We're open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday, and weekends by appointment.

Of course, the majority of business is still done mail order. We ship to all parts of the U.S. and internationally.

We are always looking to purchase old inventories, parts collections, parts vehicles, whole vehicles or any WWII or Korean military-related items.

We also have vehicles for sale, please check out the FOR SALE pages if you are looking for a truck to restore. Shipping can be arranged.

My current private collection consists of:

a1942 WC58, 1941 WC4, 1945 WC62, 1942 WC61, 1943 Ford GPA, 1944 GPW, 1942 Mack NO, 1942 Harley WLA, 1944 CCKW 353 Airtransportable, 1942 Diamond T, 1942 Bren Gun Carrier, WWII Quad 50 Mount, 1941 M3A1 Scout Car, 1942 Ben Hur Trailer, 1942 40mm Bofors Gun, 1945 155mm Long Tom Howitzer, 1952 M38, 1952 M100, 1959 MK2/3 Ferret,1975 M543 Wrecker, M2A1 Halftrack.

But, the most covetted part of my collection is my very understanding wife and 3 kids.

Customer Photo Gallery

Many customers of mine like to send me finished photos of their project trucks. I decided to share them with you. About once a month or so I will feature a new vehicle, or two. If you have photos to share of your finished vehicle or vehicles please send or email them to me. If you have sent in photos and I have not posted them yet, please be patient, I will get to them eventually.
