Here's a video I shot a couple years ago of a few friends of mine taking a '48 out for a spin.

This one was mine, all original '59. I drove it from SoCal to Prince Rupert BC after rebuilding the engine and brakes. I sold it when I needed money for college and had no where to store it I lived for that old truck for a couple years. I'll have another one someday.

I won't argue with you on that one either. Just so ya know, when I got that jeep, almost 20 years ago, the paint was almost the same, and it had been swapped on to a 4wd Willys Wagon fram, with an OHC 6. I kept breaking stuff, and the OHC 6, refused to stop leaking oil. So, I swapped the frame for one from a '71 Wagoneer, with a 360. Things just kindof went from there. Have had lots of fun with it. Made friends, and even been in a few magazines. It's a great toy, but never was a good candidate for restoration (lots of poor sheetmetal work on the interior/firewall, floor etc before I got it).

Also, the drivers side has the logo, and 5 digit phone number from the dry cleaners that used to use it for deliveries!

My '57, back in the early 80's. Always wanted to have one of those wagons all done up nice.
