I chose Willys "Transport Yellow" for my color and used NAPA acrylic enamel.
Thanks for the compliments!

Pretty much was a rust bucket I purchased sight unseen on Ebay!. Lot of stuff from Carl Walck, Kaiser-Willys, and Willys Overland (replitub). I still have to mount the top and roll bar.

I do like the color yellow, very nice looking ride.
Thanks for sharing.

Looks great Galen! Nice color choice.

Drive. Enjoy. Repeat.

Johnrb, I like what you said...repeat, but what? I am thinking of perhaps one of the following: Jeep truck- yr? or an International M-2-4 WWII era military, Unimog 404, or Landrover 88 series III,
Whats your choice if any of the above
VIC543B - April 24, 2012 12:59 AM (GMT)
Do a 3A, then a 2A, then a GPW, then an MB, then start back with another 3B......and as stated earlier..Repeat. :D

My 1953 3B is on its second full restoration. Does that count ? :lol:

It's a circular reference. Repeat the sequence. It's the fun that never ends.

I like this interpretation too. Repeat a Willys build.
I'm doing that too.http://home.comcast.net/~jrburch_h/jeep/wagon/wagon.html
Though the 3B comes first. Got to get it finished.
Even so, I plan a few things for the Wagon this summer so I can drive it in cold and rain when I might not want to drive the 3B.
So many old, cool Willys. So little time. So little money. :(

Nice work! Can't go wrong with a yellow CJ.

Your 3B looks great with the simple, tough look that an old Jeep should have!
Galen - May 3, 2012 12:40 PM (GMT)
Thanks for the kind words ;)

Very, very nice!!! And thank you for the BLACK engine!!!!!!!!!
I think I would vote for a Willys pickup for the repeat. Think Jeeps can be a money pit, just start on those last two you listed-----
Maybe a 226 version that will actually be drivable at normal highway speed or, if you are a gluton for punishment, perhaps a 63 with the 230 OHC. The 63's also have a much better bell crank arrangement and at least some had 4.09/4.10 gears.
