My uncle drove this jeep for a number of years and then parked it in his backyard. Poor thing was the brunt of jokes for a couple of decades but he always vowed he would restore it. It did really look awful sitting there but he did get it running a few times and took care to cover the motor and turn it once in awhile with hand crank. My uncle retired and moved to North Carolina. He basically was sending the thing to the junk yard. I intervened saying i would find someone who needed parts. After researching a little bit I decided that i might try my hand at fixing it up to at least working condition. I towed it here and at least its in a garage now. Further research has gotten me excited as it appears to be a slat grill jeep, minus the actual slat grill. Perhaps someone replaced it? Also it has no glove box and but does have Willy's label on back. Could it be? The brass tage on the dash for some reason had the lower right corder lopped off and any info there is gone. It has all flat dish wheels and the hood has an open hole for a snorke? I have not had a chance to look at frame, body, hood #'s as ive just recenlty discovered this jeeps potential. Im very interested in fixing this jeep now. Body is horrific and i think thats putting it mildly. I have good mechanical ability and have worked on cars before so im not too scared by the mechanicals. The body however is a different story. I think it would be more valuable and interesting to keep the same body. Any suggestions? After looking at other people before shots of there jeeps, this one mechanically doesnt seem so bad. But who could bring this body back to show condition? okay, even sit in and drive it condition without it looking fixed? hehe So that is the story so far and it could have ended differently at the junk yard. This slat grill jeep has a great chance of getting back on the road! Thanks for reading.
