I collect enough stuff. I'm pretty sure I won't be collecting jeeps.
My all american jeep is made in canada, eh
The old ones are different. The first one I got off of Craigslist for around $2K, it was and still is a runner. The second one (also a '46 2A) was owned by a buddy of mine who had it sitting on his property for as long as I have known him. It is pretty rotted out, but had a rollbar that I wanted. He said I could have the rollbar for $20 if I took the whole Jeep
My son picked up his '42 this past summer. He paid $650 I think. It needs a full restoration but most of the parts are there. He also picked up a Willys (bantam) trailer for it at the same time. Today he got a complete rebuilt engine and 4 tires for it. The Jeep is all torn apart in his shop which is one of those portable carports from Costco. Dang thing is splitting the seams right now! He is also going to be working for Jeep parts for a neighbor over the next several months.
