1945 Willys MB Restoration  2009/2010

Began 10-01-09 Finished 6-01-10 Year: 1945 Model: MB Make: Willy’s SN: N/A This vehicle was purchased right after WW2 in South San Francisco. It has been owned by it’s original owner since it’s purchase. The family had decided that it was time to return the Jeep back to it’s original design and therefore brought it to CMA for a full restoration. The motor was not needing to be rebuilt due to the fact that it had been re-done in the not to distant past. It did however, run hot and never ran well due to various tired components. This was a full frame off restoration and was completed in June of 2010. The Naval markings seen on the Jeep were dedicated to the ships numbers that the owner was stationed on during WWII. During the war, the Navy usually was not issued Jeeps so the Navy would get them from the Army or Marines and paint over the OD green with the Navy Gray paint issued to each ship. The frames were usually left with the original color green. After the full restoration the Jeep was fully road tested and fine tuned for delivery. Cost of project: $27,000. Engine did not need to be rebuilt. If you have any questions, comments, or just want to drop us a line, please feel free to e-mail Terry at gpajeep@yahoo.com.

1972 Commando Restoration Project

After many months of backwards and forwards progression, I finally finished my latest member of the CMA personal collection. I call it my "Signage" vehicle but the rest of you can think of it as the "Ultimate Surf and Safari Wagon". It includes the following specs: * Mighty AMC 232 in-line 6-cylinder engine! (same as the one they used to put into the old Ramblers) * Dana 44's in the rear * Fully synchronized Warner T-14A, 3-speed transmission (for slow cruising and smooth shifting) * Big-ass used Mud & Snow Tires off an old pair of CJ 15-inch wheels (you know the kind that sound like Big Foot is right on your ass!). They were donated to me...and yes, they are fully balanced. Woo...oho! * Top speed (with ear muffs): 65 mph downhill * Mpg?...who cares! * Hydraulic clutch (cost more than the jeep itself) * Original seats protected with...you guessed it...ARMOR FOR ALL (aka "Armor All") * Original removable factory hard-top with luggage rack * Interior boat decking carpeting and in-home threshold strips * Painted with high-sheen O.D. ("Over Dirt & Over Dents") paint * Vinyl Invasion Star markings. A good look when breaking out onto the beach If you have any questions, comments, or just want to drop us a line, please feel free to e-mail Terry at gpajeep@yahoo.com.
