    Great looking “Find”, If Keith and Brandon are working on this – the outcome will be good for the preservation of this Willys and the Jeep Community!

    Although an interesting story and beautiful restoration, I ask this question; Why when repainted the olive drab finish is painted with a low gloss sheen, rather than a flat no gloss finish? Again, I don’t know but asking this question, When NEW, was it not a FLAT PAINT finish?
    What I find is so many times is the word restoration is misused, I would think restoration meant Original appearance of the vehicle.

    Mike, while I’m not an expert on these very early CJ2s, the early civilian Jeeps had a semi gloss (not flat) finish. In fact, late WW2 Jeeps and into the mid 50s had a semi gloss finish in the OD (a darker OD with a medium sheen). I think the debate for the military Jeeps is when was the exact time a change was made – kinda like arguing how many angels can stand on the head of a pin. But I believe there can be no question for the change from military to civilian. A good question, Mike. To your final point, I believe the trend in classic vehicles including early Jeeps is to over-restore them.

    That wasn’t me at 3:56. I knew who you meant. It’s a great forum to exchange ideas and information.
