Dec 42 GPW pics

Post by cjpryor » Sun Jul 22, 2018 5:54 pm

obviously far from original. this was a ranch/hunting vehicle for decades prior to my purchase many years ago. i have slowly been bringing it back to life. it has a mixture of gpw, mb, and cj2a parts.

complete set of pics can be found here: http://www.nmcollectorsoftware.com/gpw/

99% of people couldn’t tell the difference from what you’ve got and 100% accurate. Hope you enjoy the hell out of it. Thanks for sharing.

Nice jeep - wish mine looked that good ! - I think you may have the front bumper on the wrong way up though . Sorry to be the one to mention it.

Looks great as it is.

Just putting all the small stuff together and adding your own touch is the bast part of the job.
