Spring 1979 Shortly after I bought it in Fall of 1978

Jeep had the original paint, canvas & tires. Absolutely no rust!!

When I purchased the Jeep in the Fall of 1978 it only had 23,000 miles. The local school district got the Jeep from the military in 1958 and used it very little over the next 20 years that they owned it. The did however, add a push guard to the front bumper for pushing buses out of the mud when stuck out in the countryside. The Jeep set many years over at the bus barn.

1982 Fresh paint job.

1982 was the year that I graduated from high school. On the days that weather permitted I drove it back and forth to school.

1982 Daily Driver

Taken in 1984 Still driving the Jeep on pretty days. Drove it in cold weather as well.
