Looks like a great project and a fun trip. Four plus lanes of traffic out here would give most people a twitch!
WOW! Why haven't I ever thought of that, giving a bunch of people a sander and letting them go at it. That there is a genius idea! THANKS!..........Safe at it's new home. First plan is to give about 6 people a sander and prepping it for a coat of primer. I think that will make a huge difference......
Slight amendment, Dave......the washer machine is all Mike will need. It'll be nice to not being the one buying the beer for a change.Time for a "block party" as Shorty used to say when he was still on Iron Restoration. The washing machine is all you'll need.
Showpiece? Bight your tongue, Tim. We drive 'em, bro!Nice, they're normally hard to find with good metal! Is he planning on doing a military paint job on it or making it more of a showpiece?
Saugarties.WOW that looks solid!! Nice find for him. So what town were you in? 3 hours puts you close in my aera.
We just passed through Queens and the Bronx on the way, Joe. And the right to do so is expensive.Sweeeeeeeeet truck! I love that style Jeep. So this was in New York City as in Manhattan? You are braver than me to drive a truck with a trailer in the city. My curiosity needs to know how much did you get dinged for tolls? My last trip thru the city was to take my wife to JFK. I took the Goethals bridge from NJ to Staten Island ($18) then the Verrazano Narrows bridge to Long Island ($36) for a total of $54 for just a pickup truck. A 2 axle trailer has to add to that.
"Willys-Overland was purchased by Kaiser Manufacturing Co. in 1953. In 1963, the company dropped the Willys name, becoming Kaiser-Jeep Corp. Six years later, in 1969, the company was acquired by American Motors."I know the Jeep name is on it but who built it? Chevy, Ford or AMC? Heck Chrysler even built a few in the beginning. With a Jeep one has to watch those fine details.
The top is brand new, and a good one, from Memphis. Also has a new water pump, radiator and some other things. The guy was running it on the road.The top looks new, and nice, and tight.

Yup, Tommy was pretty slick with the fence whitewash, but the trick is to keep 'em coming back. That's where the beer and Neopolitan knockwurst comes in.You never read Tom Sawyer?
Memphis seems to be the "Richards" of M-715dom. I came across them while checking for parts availability when I was on one of my own M-715 crusades (more to come, I'm sure ). The new parts, and it's already being on the road are both big plusses, and make Mike's starting point better.Slight amendment, Dave......the washer machine is all Mike will need.

lol. It should be nice to see how the other half have lived for a change.

Not that far! Only about a hour from me. Those are pretty cool. We have a few running around local to me. Fun drive as long as you dont plan on hitting any highways. I dont know what they top out at, but the one down the road from me is screaming pretty high going down the local 55mph backroads!
