I acquired this 1942 GPW at age 17 in 1983. It was my first car!
Following a road accident in 1986 the Jeep was completely rebuilt, using most of the original parts while replacing the WOF parts which were put on it during its French Army service.
A complete motorpool type restoration with today's knowledge and parts using the original glove box door as reference was finished early June 2021!
Thanks for watching!
