I met him at Midway Airport one time, more than a few years back. That is his baby and is a labor of love. I didn’t have a camera with me at the time, but it was freshly painted back then and it looked great. Still looks great to me.
my grandpa had a similar willy's up in Kingston, NY before he passed. bought it as a rust bucket and completely refurbished it. i would have loved to inherit it, hopefully its still up there and I can track it down. i'll try to find the before/after pics and post them up
that is an awesome restore... i like how he used a new winch on the front but painted it to look like an old one hehe.
i have two of my buddies with willys but both are rock crawlers. cant help but love an old retore though, i have some pics of one that i saw at a local airport, completely restored, even had a thompson mounted on the dash.
