It’s probably too early to show pictures of the Jeepster my father is restoring, but I’m too excited to not pass along. It was in July 2012, after finishing a restoration of a ’68 Mustang that my dad first asked me, his “Jeep guy” son who knows nothing about restoring cars (I’ve owned a ’95 Wrangler, ’00 Cherokee, and ’08 Liberty, so I guess I’m a “Jeep guy”), if I knew what a ’50′s era Willys Jeepster looked like, and if I’d like to enter into a restoration project with him. I went from not able to envision the vehicle to quickly joining my dad in his fascination with Willys’ post WWII efforts to build a car that appealed to returning GI’s, the phaeton design, and the Hurricane engine (72 horsepower!). The other day my dad sent this last picture to me with the quote, “I got bored patching rust and had to paint something”. Anyway, here are some pictures a grateful son has been collecting of his talented father’s efforts. Thanks Dad!
