Willys MB 209988
Acquired the Jeep on August 16th, 2008. The original engine has been replaced with a Willys Overland France. Original Body and 5 Combat Wheels. Ongoing full restoration at this time.
6, October 2009. The Frame, Windshield, Axles, Bearings, Brakes, Suspension Springs, Bumper and Bumperettes, Steering, Combat Rims, Transmission, Transfer Case, Radiator, have been reviewed and repairs have been made. The Engine worked just fine and seems in very good condition. No repairs needed on the Engine at this time. The Rolling Chassis is fully painted, the Engine is running great and painted as well.
Replaced rotted and Bondo spots on the Body with new correct gauge metal. Lots of welding and grinding.
3/3/10. Fenders, Windshield, Seats Front and Rear, Hood and Jerry Can have been restored and painted.
4/10/10. Body has been restored completely and painted as well.
Now the Wiring is completed and all the eletrical system works perfectly.
Had the Generator repaired has it wasn't charging the new Battery.
The canvas came from a Company based in England. I preferred the patina from Canvasco rather than the "not so correct" canvas from Beachwood. That is my personal opinion.
The restoration was completed during August of 2010.
The Jeep came out above and beyond what I had expected.
