Ford GPW 250661

Looks like a U.S. army jeep salad rebuild, although how it got to spend 40+ years in Ontario is unknown. 43 GPW frame, later body, glove box door and plates from a 45 GPW and a mix of early and late Willys power and drive line bits. A thoroughly tossed salad! It is being restored the same way. About half-way done now (August 2010). Driveline, brakes and engine all done. Original GPW rad checks out great. Just needs to have the new Firestone tires mounted and then it is on to the body work...
