Good straight club machine. Runs great all compressions over 115. 12volt with alternator.
Has overdrive auxilliary gearbox and larger 7,00-16 tyres which knock 500rpm off the engine speed at cruise. Aux overdrive box with synchro is new but still needs minor adjustment (instructions provided) to stop it jumping out occasionally in low (direct) range. Most everything is as good as new. Steers, stops and rides quietly and smoothly - for a Jeep!
Repro parts have been used in various places. The "A" frame is genuine WW2 bought in Europe. UHF radio. Drivers seat extended to rear about 4 inches for fatties, oldies and long people. Canvas top new. Free wheel hubs.
Probably would not win a prize but a nice jeep all the same
Would swap/trade for a 1940-46 Dodge, Ford, Chevrolet etc car, wagon or ute.

I think I mentioned this about 5 years ago about jumping jeeps.
When I was first married living in Brisbane I saw in the paper a dealer had a jeep for sale at the outrageous price of $400. Anyhow jumped in the car with Bev who was extremely large at that time. Dealer said take it for a spin in the block next door where there are big mounds of roadbase. After the second airborne jump Bev mentioned that perhaps we might desist and take her to the hospital.
Leaving a $10 deposit we raced off to the hospital and in those days, when husbands were not allowed anywhere near arriving babies, I left her to secret women's business and shot off to the bank and then to the dealer. By late afternoon I was the owner of two new babies!
