Builds — James 1947 Rebuild

• CATEGORIES: Builds • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  James wrote me tonight saying he’s made additional progress. Check out the paint job: beautiful!   You can check it out at his website.

(Aug 11, 2009) I ran across this website today where James is thoroughly documenting the rebuild of a 1947 that was parked by his wife’s grandfather 40 years ago in a barn and left there.  One observer voiced some concern that it was the jeep holding up the barn and if they moved it, the barn might just give up and topple over.

According to the blog, James has been working on this about 2 years now.  In the picture below, MetalRehab had just finished cleaning all the body parts.  Recently, the parts were dropped off at Everman Paint and Body to get some body work done and paint (I think I’m right about the paint part).

And below is the engine running after a great deal of work cleaning all the parts.

James, obviously a man of high taste (I can tell this as I found a link back to ewillys on his site 🙂 ), would make a grandpa proud with this rebuild.
