146: Keith Hershberger’s 1948 Willys Truck
I purchased this truck (sitting in a field) about 10 years ago. I have always wanted a military Jeep, but was not able to find one at the time I was looking at a price I could afford. Of course, like many, I thought I would be done with the rebuild/restoration in a year. It took me about 7 which included a complete “Go Devil” engine tear down and rebuild.. as well as all new brakes, lines, cylinders, gas tank, etc etc. Rear fenders, seat frames were located over the years as I scavenged junk yards while on the road for work. My kids love the “munitions carrier” as we have camped out in the back (and did even when it was on blocks in the garage) Had a recent opportunity to pose it in front of several WWII Warbirds (not the most original I suppose)… but it gave the truck even more of the look I was going for. Hope you like it as well!!
