I've seen Dennis Bellanti do this with his jeep between races, by HIMSELF!!

It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.

    One of our subscribers

    wrote this morning, wondering what happened to the coolant in the radiator. He also pointed out that the Jeep is from the Korean War, not WWII as I had said in the newsletter. I have very smart subscribers. ;-)



    Amazing any way you look at it, though. And Dennis could probably do it quicker. And alone!
    Retired and loving it.

    light and easy to handle

    A buddy and i got caught without a working jack when our jeep got a flat. I paid 3 Korean farmers 50 cents to hold the corner of the jeep up while i changed the tire.



    labor was cheap back in '69.

    I was gonna say...

    Real Jeeps have SQUARE hoods... :-)



    Still an amazing feat in my mind.



    Team work!

    CJ or MJ 5

    that looks like a CJ 5 as most people would recognize. WWII were MJ2's with flat heads, then came the MJ3 with overhead values and a taller hood to accommodate the valve cover.



    if i remember correctly, Ford came up with the flat hood design so they could carry more stretchers.   it wasn't willys idea.



    I had a 1946 CJ2A in high school.

    Real Jeeps

    When my uncle was in the army (WW-II), he told me that real jeeps had square wheels.

    Minimal fastners required

     Is the key.  Still a good show.  Shows the simplicity of the old reliable Willeys Jeep.
