I have no idea what year the tub is. could it be a pre-war tub?
Ron has a script panel, http://www.vintagejeeps.com/p-1019-ford ... 2758f.aspx This will be an MDJ made in the Phillipines. , Jay whose username is memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=34924 I think, sells the British made panel by Joes Motor Pool.
54, it will be a learning curve. I only wished that there was the internet and a site like this and Tom's site when I got my GPW in 1983 The good thing was my jeep was all ready for the road, minus some correct items
All the best, Dave
I can only imagine before the internet what it was like to put one of these together. using a catalog alone for parts. the net is a huge tool in helping with these old jeeps. used it extensively for my 3B. at least I have a basic knowledge from my first jeep to apply to this one. but I think this one will be more fun. I had a blast with my 3B so this one should be more fun. it sucks that I wont be able to work on it for a year.
