My grandfather bought this Jeep new in 1952. He ordered it with the a PTO and Monroe lift with the intention of using it to maintain property he owned in Pennsylvania. I remember bouncing in the passenger seat while my Dad dragged a bush hog around mowing the field. It last ran in the late 70’s so I never got to drive it myself but I will be able to finally do that soon. I have not done a complete restoration as I like to see the character marks that show it’s life as a work vehicle. The hard top was purchased from Sears sometime in the mid 50’s when it became clear the original canvas top was inadequate for Pennsylvania winters.
