204: Romeo Dilig’s 1942 Willys MB
This is my Willys MB which was manufactured in 1942 as written on its Data Plate. I bought this Jeep in September of 2010 from a famous mechanic of military vehicles here in Bataan, Philippines. When I first saw this Jeep, I was surprised because its parts were all practically original except for the radiator. It is powered by the Willys Overland “Go-Devil” Motor. Its transmission is a 3 speed T-84 with Transfer Case: 2 Speed DANA 18. This jeep was used by a landlord here in Bataan as his service vehicle in going to his huge farm for almost 30 years. When he died his eldest son decided to give this jeep to their mechanic. I started to restore my Willys MB in September, 2013. From then on, I haven’t stopped with the restoration until August 2014. I painted it twice because the first color that I chose was Willow Green. I decided to change the color to Olive Drab.
