I have no idea what year the tub is. could it be a pre-war tub?
Hi 54,no it's not pre war, that type of tub was made by Ford from jan 1942 until late 1943 when they went to the composite tub.
Ron has a script panel, http://www.vintagejeeps.com/p-1019-ford ... 2758f.aspx This will be an MDJ made in the Phillipines. , Jay whose username is memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=34924 I think, sells the British made panel by Joes Motor Pool.
54, it will be a learning curve. I only wished that there was the internet and a site like this and Tom's site when I got my GPW in 1983 The good thing was my jeep was all ready for the road, minus some correct items
All the best, Dave
thanks for the link. I bookmarked it for later.
I can only imagine before the internet what it was like to put one of these together. using a catalog alone for parts. the net is a huge tool in helping with these old jeeps. used it extensively for my 3B. at least I have a basic knowledge from my first jeep to apply to this one. but I think this one will be more fun. I had a blast with my 3B so this one should be more fun. it sucks that I wont be able to work on it for a year.
