353: Darrell Plough’s 1953 Willys Truck
I bought this Truck mid summer, the engine was recently overhauled and the body needs no repairs. I built a new front bumper for it. The brakes were toast and every brake related part was replaced with new except the pedal. The wiring was a wadded up mess and every part in the system that stores, generates or transfers electricity was replaced. Next week the clutch gets replaced, that’s about all for this summer. Over the winter it’ll get new door windows and various weather seals. Currently not planning on paint work, kinda like the “patina”. I just found out about a special event at the Mackinaw Bridge between Michigan’s upper and lower peninsula next April. They set aside a special crossing just for jeeps, Jeep the Mac! this will be the 3rd year, last year they had almost 700 jeeps! I have my registration and Motel reservations already! It’s a 3 day jeep extravaganza!
