    Hi René, you have just got to love a Jeep!

    Very, very few that were ever shipped overseas from the USA now retain their original body /chassis / engine. Nothing wrong in that. I think I would call her a Ford GPW, going by the chassis.

    Is she still 6 Volt? I guess 12v looking at the Voltage regulator box.

    I put mine to bed yesterday ready for the winter.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I cannot speak for other places, but here in the UK around £10,000 to £12,000. The USA seems to have them cheaper. I know friends of mine have paid £12,000 for French Hotchkiss M201 clones! So you paid about £4000, a cheap deal!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ahh Get one quickly mate they are a hell of lot of fun when you get them in tricky situations and relatively easy to work on I once was driving it around one night and ended up with 10 hitch hikers on board
