1948 Willys Jeep on 'Legendary' voyage

Hey everyone:

I thought that most of you might be interested in this story since so many of us are passionate about our Jeeps and Jeep vehicles. The team at Jeepbrokers.com will be commencing a three-week journey in early May that involves a one-owner, 1948 Willys Jeep that was previously owned by a WWII Fighter Pilot who returned home from his tour of duty and purchased the vehicle shortly thereafter. The Jeepbrokers.com crew have purchased this vehicle from 85 year old Nick Fallier in Georgia and will be driving it from GA back to AZ with the remaining '1948 miles' to be driven on America's legendary highway Route 66. Our magazine will be providing exclusive coverage of this trip in an upcoming issue, but for those of you who would like to see the true significance of this journey, visit:

http://www.jeepbrokers.com/roadtrip_2007.htm

The press release and trip details with map can be found on that site and full-coverage will be featured in a future issue of JPFreek Adventure Magazine as per above. Also, if any of you would like to join the guys on a portion or all of this trip, feel free to PM or email me at fledwell@jpfreek.com as they would enjoy having anyone and everyone join them.

Frank

Thanks! It's going to be a remarkable journey. I plan to post a few photos of the rig in a new 'News and Events' tab we plan to add to the JPFreek website, as well as within the next issue of the magazine (to be released next Monday, April 9). I'll keep everyone posted on the project as a whole as it's going to be a great one!

That sounds awsome, I wish I was able to tag along.

I would be very interested in the original owners story as well, not many of those old heroes left.

Frank, are you going to be travelling along with them to cover the story or are they just going to submit pics and reports?

Some of the boys here in AZ found out about the trek and were talking about providing some convoy action for the Willy's.

I'm planning to meet them in Tulsa before they hop on Route 66 to visit, take photos, etc but they'll be doing most of the trip on their own with the prospect of fellow Jeep clubs, etc joining along in segments. Y'all should definitely plan a convoy of Willys as that'd be awesome! Let me know your plans and I'll see what all we can get worked out with Will and Vance.
