WW II Canteens Supporting Troops, Second World War: GAZ-67 (Soviet equivalent of Willys), replica GAZ-67 and GAZ-69 (the after War Toiller)

GAZ-67 (Soviet equivalent of Willys), replica GAZ-67, and GAZ-69 (the Toiller) on Kiev streets.

Here is rare WWII car GAZ-67. And another non-everyday car – Willys. Looks like some-one put a lot of efforts in creating GAZ-67 replica,   I guess the reenactors, as cars are on civil state registration plates.
