(SEE COMMENTS)  It appears a great deal of meticulous work has gone into this ‘restoration’ and it looks nice.  However, this doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me.  If you are trying to make jeep that’s just come off the battlefield of WWII and you are going to invest the time and energy, why not do this with an earlier model such as an MB (that really did come off the battlefield) or it’s closest cousin the CJ-2A?

“98K original miles, 6 volt, all stock and original, new engine (it purrs) with maybe 5K on it, rebuilt transmission, rebuilt brakes, fresh upholstery on the original seats, a few dents and dings. Its turn key, needs nothing, starts, runs and drives excellent for a near 60 year old Jeep. Built to look like it just rolled off the battlefield in WWII, extended bed, Flat military green paint,loaded with ammo boxes, vintage tools, military surplus stuff, canvas etc.”

    Jim again, this too was one of mine and in response to the above comments, I never said it was a “restoration”. This was an ass ugly ranch jeep out of Montrose, you’d puke if you saw it. Had a bed extension, horrible paint, some dents, minor rust but ran and drove well. I build them like this for fun, they look great in the woods, sort of a military rat rod and everyone loves them when we take one into downtown Durango. Also in response as to why I built it like this, $3000 cash profit for less than 2 weeks worth of work, make sense now? lol!
