Another tribute. This was my dad's old Jeep. His was a '51 that had no split window, but I didn't cut out the post because the class was scored in the middle. I used the bubble headlights because that's what he had. Kit has both grilles included. His had a Buick 225 V-6, but I couldn't find one, so I put in the stock 4 banger. Used the Godzilla Jeep kit. Rustoleum Gloss Red and no clear coat. Custom full cage roll bar like his made to the best of my limited abilities. Thanx for looking.

Great looking Flat Fender Jeep. Good looking tires also. The engine in the kit had an Aluminum Head ?

Great looking Jeep. What wheels and tires are those? They fit well and look good. The v-6 can be found in the Jeep Commando kit. PM me if you want to add one. That's a really nice tribute to your father.

Ah Jeeps, they were such simple creatures back then.

Nice work on yours.

Jeff, those wheels and tires can be found at Scenes Unlimited. Danny has been adding some really nice stuff for 4x4's lately, check it out if you are looking for that kind of stuff.

 

Nice Jeep, clean, basic and simple, just like the real thing! Love the color and details.

Thanks for the info. They look pretty good, I'll have to look them up.

A word of caution, use restraint when shopping on the Scenes Unlimited website or else you will end up with $100 of stuff in your cart without realizing it. Ask me how I know!
