Jonathan Frank’s father drove a WW2 jeep home from the war.  He drove from California to North Carolina.  Once home he parked it in a barn on the farm and said he would never drive it again.  However, his son, Jonathan and his brother, drove the jeep on the farm.  Over the years he has rebuilt it at least three times.  The most recent rebuilt was initiated when his own son blew the rear differential.  Jonathan admits that the jeep is a work in progress and that it is only about 80 percent original.  The winch on the front was a gift from his brother’s old jeep.  He also purchased some disc brakes from me.  One thing for sure I bet Jonathan has a blast driving the jeep!
