Ford GPW 122633

Purchased in mid September 2005 and took delivery on October 1, 2005 from a great guy named John Taylor. John gave me a brief history of this particular jeep; this jeep was presented to the U.S. Army by the Dearborn Branch Ford Dealer through purchase of war bonds.After its retirement from the military, it worked with a utility company, then it was passed on to a logging camp for a number of years.It was then retired to a farm, however it was rescued by John about 10 ten years ago. He said that this vehicle was never titled. John briefly did some restoration work to the engine, but due to failing health, he was unable to complete the task.The vehicle was parked in a field and covered with canvas in Colorado where it rested until it was recovered by myself.Currently the vehicle is under restoration that required the removal of five layers of paint from forest green, orange, yellow, black and then last olive green.These layers of paint are probably what preserved the jeep until this day. The current restoration has involved removal of unauthorized, custom-made parts from the body and its restoration and replacement of its original accessories.It has been cleaned, repainted and recanvassed.I am currently ready to put the numbers and markings on it and was unsure what numbers should be put on the hood and would appreciate any guidance and advice. I will be happy to post some pictures as my progress goes on.
