    Unfortunately for the future father in-law you saved it.

    Cool rig for sure. If it is just a tub and a few smaller parts, it should be pretty fix.
    The good thing is no scouring everywhere for all the missing parts like you might typically have to do for a restoration. Everything is there.

    Nice find, congratulations. My dad bought my A1 after the previous owners' son rolled it trying to cross a creek on his ranch. He took out the left front fender, cowl, windshield, and steering wheel and column. We got out the torches, jacks, and BFHs' and beat it back into shape and rattle canned it brown. A few years ago I tore into it again. It was fun as a stocker, but it's a lot more fun now. I think all my original parts have been picked - there might be a spare grill around if you need one. Mine is a bit older - 04/1953. Here's a couple before and after shots:

    I found a stock radiator shroud in a corner of the shop this morning - you can have it if you need it.

    Yup, it’s crazy that other than the tub and the right seat. The rest is fine, the hard to find parts are all there and original for the most part.

    It didn’t break any lights, or gauges. The factory 24v system is complete with factory waterproof connections. The grill is in good shape too.

    Thanks for the offer, the entire engine bay is untouched from the accident. Even the grill is straight.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
