Brian invited me over to his house to meet Brian and see the a new Barn find: A 1943 MB. They found just outside the tricities area. It’s got some hat channel issues, but otherwise is pretty solid. It’s also has an engine that Brian got running today. It’s a great find and, except for a lot of very cold wasps, will make a great stock MB. Since they live nearby, they’ve promised me a few additional adventures that include hunting for jeeps. I look forward to that.
Here are a couple photos taken by my favorite photographer (Ann of course). In front of the stock MB is Art’s recently purchase M-38, which looks and runs great. A former Navy Seabee, Art has decorated his jeep to reflect his time in the Navy. Behind that is the ‘barn find’ and then behind that is Brian’s flattie.
And here is one Brian and Art took early of their jeeps on a hill somewhere in the hills somewhere near Kennewick.
