Happy Birthday, Jeep!

Yes, today really is the 'birthday' of my jeep! Not only that, but its the jeep's 70th birthday! Given the serial number of my jeep, and thanks to some Willys jeep savants that I have consulted via the internets, I've learned that January 15th, 1943 is the Date of Delivery of my jeep - that's 70 years ago today.

What better birthday present to give my jeep than a new bumper and rear cross-member! I just picked it up from Roger, the restoration expert, and he did a bunch of work that I could never do to fix up the frame and get it looking like it should. Here are some before and after shots of his work:


PS - Here is a picture of Roger's next restoration project:
