Ford GPW 164794

That Jeep was used in the family up to 1970 (farming, forest). Traces of 2 registrations in Belgium : from 1947 to 1954 and 1957 to 1961. I think that this damaged jeep came from a wreckage yard and was restored after WWII by a garage to make money. The jeep was very seldom used for farming and always stored in a garage, so well preserved. Engine GPW-6015 restarted OK after a 15 years idle period, a new battery and water pump. Deep Road Restoration during 10 years. Restoration finished on May 1st, 2014. Again on the road ! Engine complete rebuild in 2016. New Belgian driving license /registration 2017 : O-ADK-363
