A Frame Off Restoration

Winter Storage

Winter Storage
Sad day! It's always a little sad to put the Jeep away for the winter. But with its protective cover, fuel preservative, reduced air pressure in the tires and a battery tender it will be in good shape in the Spring.

Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat
With the warmer, dryer weather we were able to delay the Jeep's winter retirement. That gave us the opportunity to use the Jeep as a prop for "Indiana Jones" at our annual church "Trunk or Treat" Halloween celebration.

Driving the Jeep

Sunday Jeep Ride
With the late summer weather it gives us more opportunities to take the jeep out for a Sunday drive. #Fun!

Throttle Return Spring

The previous owner rigged a makeshift throttle return spring setup. It was not period correct and often failed to return to the correct idle position. We installed the correct NOS configuration. It functions properly now.
