I think anyone would agree that cars changed the world, they have changed our lives. Being enthusiasts we love cars and appreciate the time and effort a person puts into saving a car and bringing it back to life. Writer Larry Edsall recently posted an article, on the classiccars.com blog, about what he reads in the international press releases he receives each week. It seems our domestic manufacturers aren’t doing such a great job as stewards of our past, thank goodness we are a nation of car lovers. Here is the link the blog, enjoy. Larry Edsall blog

Just for fun lets imagine you have a classic car that’s been sitting in a garage, in a field, or in a barn.  Its dirty, it’s dusty, and you’re pretty sure something’s been living in it.   You see it all the time and you think to yourself “I’m gonna fix that up someday”.  Year after year you keep telling yourself this, but your classic just sits and sits. You remember driving it not too long ago, but you start doing the math and  “That was 20 years ago!!” 

Well guess what, it’s never going  to come to life without a commitment to making it happen.  This is a common story.  Someone has every good intention of restoring their classic, but never takes that first step.  The first step is always the hardest.  Making that call to the restoration shop, or getting the estimate, or even just removing the boxes that are piled from hood to ceiling, is all it takes to get the ball rolling. Every restoration has to start somewhere and making that first step is just the beginning of making your memories come back to life.

Knowing who to call or where to go can be overwhelming in itself.  When undertaking your project you want to know that you’re given the right information.  A good relationship with a restoration shop is what will help you relax as you work through your project.  Open communication, honest answers, and accessibility will comfort you along the way.  The process and the memories of a restoration are just as important as the end result,  so developing this relationship is what will make every penny and minute worth it.

I don’t want to say to call a tow truck and deliver your car to the shop right away, but when you have those thoughts of restoring that space taker in the garage, act on it!  The car isn’t getting any newer, parts aren’t getting any cheaper, and you’re not getting any younger.  So make the move, do your homework, and make it happen, because in just a short time the only thing you will be putting on your hood is a fresh coat of wax.

The Willys CJ-5 design was influenced by owner, Kaiser, and the Korean War M38A1 Jeep. It was intended to replace the CJ-3B, but that model continued in production. The CJ-5 repeated this pattern, continuing in production for three decades while three newer models appeared. “The CJ-5 has the distinct honor of being a vehicle that was hard to kill off… equaling the longest production run of note. A total of 603,303 CJ-5s were produced between 1954 and 1983.

We are restoring this Willys to the original military specifications that it came in.  With original OS flat green paint, all NOS equipment and a new steel body.  We received this Jeep from a lady who’s husband and his friend had been working on restoring it for several years.  Due to some unfortunity circumstances the project was not able to be completed.  The vehicle has a lot of sentimental value to the family who plans to pass it down to the daughters.  When we got the vehicle most of the major mechanical systems like the engine, tranny, brakes and suspension had already been rebuilt.  It was in pieces though and missing the body.

Our fist step was to finish assembling the mechanical systems on the frame.  Next we bought a new metal body and paint the floor and undercoat the vehicle.  Now that the body is bolted back on the frame Bryan is working on assembling the steering, suspension and installing the wiring harness.  Bryan has also been working on repairing and painting the heater box.

Currently Bryan has finished the majority of the mechanical work, minus some of the final wiring.  So, today Justin is body working the front aftermarket fenders as they came in a little rough from the manufacture.

Precision Jeep and offroad vehicle RestorationJeep is an automobile marque (and registered trademark) of Chrysler. It is the oldest off-road vehicle (also sport utility vehicle – SUV) brand, with Land Rover coming in second. The original vehicle which first appeared as the prototype Bantam BRC became the primary light 4 wheel drive car of the US Army and allies during the World War II and postwar period. Many vehicles serving similar military and civilian roles have since been created by many nations.

There are many explanations of the origin of the word “jeep,” all of which have proven difficult to verify. Probably the most popular notion holds that the vehicle bore the designation “GP” (for “Government Purposes” or “General Purpose”), which was phonetically slurred into the word jeep. However, R. Lee Ermey, on his television series Mail Call, disputes this, saying that the vehicle was designed for specific duties, was never referred to as “General Purpose,” and that the name may have been derived from Ford’s nomenclature referring to the vehicle as GP (G for government use, and P to designate its 80-inch (2,000 mm) wheelbase). “GP” does appear in connection with the vehicle in the TM 9-803 manual, which describes the vehicle as a machine, and the vehicle is designated a “GP” in TM 9-2800, Standard Motor Vehicles, September 1, 1949, but whether the average jeep-driving GI would have been familiar with either of these manuals is open to debate.

This account may confuse the jeep with the nickname of another series of vehicles with the GP designation. The Electro-Motive Division of General Motors, a maker of railroad locomotives, introduced its “General Purpose” line in 1949, using the GP tag. These locomotives are commonly referred to as Geeps, pronounced the same way as “Jeep.”

Many, including Ermey, suggest that soldiers at the time were so impressed with the new vehicles that they informally named it after Eugene the Jeep, a character in the Popeye cartoons that “could go anywhere.”

Precision Jeep and offroad restorations, as one may imagine, are extremely enjoyable. Our clients, who are Jeep and offroad enthusiasts, are great to work with. There is obviously a high degree of planning and design that go into these vehicles. Like a racing vehicle, these offroad vehicles are built with a very specific purpose and use. These vehicles can not fail on the offroad course and therefore we are extremely careful that we understand the clients needs and the client understands the design that was incorporated based on the intended use of the vehicle. The Jeep and other offroad vehicles represent an important segment in the American auto industry and the auto enthusiasts. Rugged design the ability to do anything, anywhere at anytime make these vehicles true muscle machines. Whether its a Jeep, Toyota, Willys or International we enjoy them all.

Precision Jeep and offroad vehicle restorations are considered the most fun and client interactive amongst the staff. In all cases the Jeep and offroad vehicle restoration always exceeds our clients expectations.
