Our Vintage Baby

This is the jeep I mentioned a couple of posts ago. We have actually owned her once before. We were fortunate to be able to secure her again just recently.


Yeah, I know she doesn't look like much. But just give Rick a few months......she'll be looking mighty fine!


1947 Willys CJ2A








I'll be documenting the restoration process with more photos later. And aren't you going to be lucky?  I'm sure I will be boring you with them! HA

  2. All I can say is Rick must be gifted and patient! My hubby and son had to rebuild an engine in a truck one time and it nearly killed them! ha! ha!

  3. So, how many seats are in the jeep----enough to take us for a ride when he's finished?

  11. Where you see a Jeep, I see a pile of scrap metal. I'm so-o-o-o glad there are people in the world that know how to restore broken/old things. I don't think I'm one of them :)

  12. My Dad used to rebuid old model T's. It is a real gift to understand how to build a car.

    I found your site and would like to join Texas bloggers, but you comment section would not open. I live in east Texas in region 3.

    You have a very lovely blog. Thank you for any help you can give me in regards to this matter.

    Blessings,
    Pam
