Paul Gertsma

Willys CJ2A

This project we restored the Jeep back to it's original condition. The Jeep had an F-Head engine in it and the typical hood scoop to accomodate the overhead valve engine so we put an original L-Head (Flat Head) engine in it and did a ground up frame off restoration. The Jeep didn't look too bad until we sandblasted it then you could see all the rust spots and bondo that was previously put in the Jeep. We cut out the bad spots and welded new metal in and she looks like new again.
