Double Deuce

Post by The Jackal » Tue Apr 09, 2013 4:59 pm

Not a lot of changes since I brought her. Steering wheel replaced, and a few replacement parts purchased ready for when the weather gets better.

This picture was taken on a drive to Crich Tramway 1940s weekend.

Are We There Yet ??? :grin:
The journey isn't about departing in a well preserved body - but rather to skid in sideways - totally worn out - shouting HOLY SHIT WHAT A RIDE!!!!

Took just over an hour to get from Walsall to Crich, and the jeep drove very well. Myself and the better half needed about six cups of tea each when we got there to warm up. :)
Next event is GWR 1940s weekend (better half is singer there all weekend) Was hoping to have the new wheels and tyres on by then, but very slow progress due to the weather

Since my last post which was nearly a year ago now, I have managed to get a few things done. Mainly driven by the fact I am taking her to Normandy in June for the 70th celebrations.

Firstly I have managed to get a set of late WW2 rims which I have fitted with the correct tires. Also fitted now is a dated fire extinguisher and a bushall rack. She has also had a nice fresh coat of olive drab paint. Now on the look out for a cheap WW2 black out light and back seat, but these can wait as my funds have taken a hammering with a purchase of a new car (see below)

Hi Monsterc10

I live in Walsall. I attend as many 1940s events as possible with the jeep. This means my off roadin days have been very few and far between with the wrangler :(. Got to bite the bullet and put it up for sale now.

Are you by any chance a member of Birty's as the jeep looks familar.

love these vehicles my grandfather had 6 of them after the second world war on his wild estate in Sutherland - 40,000 acres and no roads- they go as well across bogs as gravel!

my father inherited the place in 1958 and moved out in 1966- (before my time)

Ps my uncle stole an American Halftarck (White) =at the end of WW2 and drove it to his farm for a bet- I remeber seeing it in a shed on his farm- caused no end of trouble with the US emabssy I gather!
Kind Regards

That's great TopCat! Pity he ain't got any spares! They are few and far between now, I'm hoping to float mine next year :good:
