This jeep is the first thing I ever drove before I could touch the pedals. I grew up on a farm and we used it all the time. The summer I started steering was when we’d go spread manure… Dad would get out and walk beside me after he turned on the spreader. It took all summer before I’d turn the corner lol. But I did and was in the woods wheeling in no time. Which is when I became a life long jeep girl. Dad bought it in the 70’s from a family friend for $4000. So it sure held it’s value even back then. He thought about restoring it last summer but is 70 now and lives in Florida half the year so gave up. Luckily he gave him to me and my BF and I are going to do all the work ourselves. So the jeep I learned how to drive in I will now learn how to restore. This jeep means more to me than any jeep ever will for so many reasons. In fact it might be my coffin… And we’ll be back… I don’t think there’s a hole it can’t crawl out of.
