Builds: Darryl’s 1943 GPW

• CATEGORIES: Builds

As mentioned yesterday, here’s a quick look at the 1943 GPW Darryl rebuilt.  He did some beautiful work (both in building and documenting the build).  He also built a trailer (pics below as well).  He lists his objective below:

To create for my personal use and enjoyment, a fully-functional, factory new appearing and extremely accurate “representative” WWII jeep using a new reproduction tub on an original, all “F-script” Ford wartime-production drivetrain, while containing costs and allowing minor deviations (a Solex carburetor) from the original configuration for ease of maintenance, reliability and safety and to be driving it within 12 months of starting the project.
