New Member early GPW

Post by Shotgun98 » Thu May 18, 2017 7:28 pm

Good Afternoon all,
I recently managed to find myself a jeep to restore down here in New Zealand.
She's a real bits jeep but the majority of parts are F stamped.
After scraping off some paint and bog I have found *GPW 1101*
I have consulted Darryls Tub Timeline http://jeepdraw.com/images/Darryls_Tub_Timeline.jpg but was wondering if from the factory it would have been fitted with a willy's skid plate etc.
The photos are not great but best I could get at the time.

New Zealand; that speck on the corner of the globe :)
