Took my Willys to a fund raising event the other day they called the "GI Jubilee".
It was for an organization called Honor Flight. They raise money to send WWII vets to Washington DC to visit the WWII memorial as well as other sites.
Folks dressed up in 1940s attire (especially the vets) and they had a whole show with big band music, singers, etc..
Here are some pics taken by a photographer for the event.
The first is on of our group, the second is one of the "Cigarette Girls" that were at the event. And the rest are some artistic shots of my Jeep.
It was pretty cool, the cigarette girls were walking around with trays of candy cigarettes and bubble gum cigars and selling them for donations.

Them picts are so cool. Outstanding JOB. My first jeep was a Korean War era jeep. Many a time over the years I have wished that I had done what you have. I can't even imagine the research you've had to do to get it right.
The only thing I had done to mine was light cosmetic work and just enough mechanical work to get it to run good. (Plus I had to get rid of all the "ARMY" stuff and convert it over to "Marine" Stuff. LOL). I later donated it to the local VFW where I lived then.
Thanks again for the picts.

I just read through this whole thread....WOW, amazing, incredible job Beastmaster!! I can't imagine the personal satisfaction that brings.
You have 2 green jeeps, I have 2 yellow :-) One old, one new. Pretty cool!
Hope you can keep posting pics as time goes on with any other mods/projects you do, they are worth all of us ogling over!

Oh, I've been meaning to post my latest restoration project. I have an old wheel barrow that's over a dozen years old. I was trying to decide if I wanted to scrap it and buy a new one or try to fix it up. Well, with some left over paint from my Willys' restoration, a can of spray on bed liner and a new tire, I don't think it came out half bad.

I've heard about it, sounds like I need to check it out.

Not to take anything away from our Wrangler Forum, but have you checked out the G503 forum? Nothing but restored military vehicles there.

Tell you what, I'll try to swing by outside the gate this weekend and get a pic next to the "Air Force Plant 44" sign (ya, google it and you can figure out where I work).
Check out some of the threads in the Military Pic Forum. Lots of cool military looking TJs there.

|Gord P||Having never built or restored anything myself, I can only imagine the sense of satisfaction that you must be feeling. For it to be something with a historical significance must make it that much more special. Again, congrats on your accomplishment and good luck with any extras you decide to do.|
