First Project 1942 Ford Jeep GPW

Sam's first project after he retired, was a 1942 Ford Jeep GPW. He bought it on ebay and we drove to central Washington to get it. It was owned by an older fellow who used it for hunting. He had made his own canopy for it.

And here is the finished project. Sam spent lots of time (and money!!) on it, but it turned out a beautiful little jeep. Following are a few pictures of it in the process. He restored from frame up!! A sweet little running rig.

When he got to looking, he realized this Jeep was a real Ford jeep - it had all the "F" marks that Ford put into it, even including the tops of nuts!!

Body off the frame.
