Hello from France everybody !
I bought here a Willys MB S/N 404335, DOD 1-8-1945. It does not seem to have been in the French Army, no plates of a french restoration.
If you are OK, I would like to share with you the complete rebuilding of it, and I suppose you are going to be a great help to me.
Rebuild a WW2 Jeep will take time, with the help of my husband and a son, as we can work on it only during the weekends, and not ALL the weekends !!! As well, getting genuine parts is money, "time is money" they say, so I decided to put it as close as possible to its original condition, knowing the money will slow it or prevent from buying very rare and expensive parts.
Here it is when I bought it :
You can admire the splendid horn and the way the fan is attached :
The dashboard :
The wiring :
The engine seems to be genuine :
Of course all your comments and advices are welcome !
Now, the Jeep has been put into pieces. There are some works to do on it !
