So in December of 2011 we built the GPW “Rarotonga” for International Military Antiques and their TV show “Family Guns”. Yes, we restored a jeep in a month. It was nuts and involved many nights with little to no sleep. Fast forward and that Jeep is now in Texas with a very happy new owner who found out that his neighbor had a 1942 Willys MB stored in the barn.
This Jeep has spent over 20 years doing farm work and has only minor modifications. The seller is the son of the former owner who was in his early 80’s when he passed.
The price was right and I knew when I saw this that I HAD to find it a new home. The MB has many original parts and a very original engine bay apparently. You can see it needs some steel work but having the original seats, handles, windshield etc.. all say something to me.
The Jeep has already found a new home in Pennsylvania and I am ecstatic! When it arrives I will post more pictures. When I find a home for a vintage Jeep I feel like I am finding a new family for an orphaned pet. 😀
