1947 painted to resemble an old military version. It was a little more complicated and expensive than I thought but it will last a long time now and be alot of fun for the kids for years to come. Driving it is just like driving in a parade.
I replaced the brakes from the master cylinder, lines to brake cylinders and replaced the pads and two drums, plus the emergency brake. New shocks, tires (original WWII bi-directional), a new bell housing, clutch plate, new radiator, hoses, belts and seats. We degreased the thing 3 times before I had it sand blasted and painted. Restored in 2001 and pretty much garage parked since. Engine is original and in pretty good shape. Still has the original bucket body with bullet holes ! (Well, painted rust holes. Original L head engine
A couple of the photos show it with the bucket off during the restoration. The rest are current.
It has been covered up over the winter. But it ran fine last summer. Let me know if you want to see it, I will uncover it for you. I am not getting auto insurance for it this summer. So you wont be test driving it except on my driveway.
I replaced the fuel pump in May and I have a current video of it running if you want to hear it purr. It’s got the original 6 volt electrical system.
I have about 39 current photos so let me know what you would like to see !
