The symbol of freedom

The restoration of our jeep

18 months of work were needed to restore our jeep. After having completely dismantled it, the chassis, the bodywork and all the parts were sandblasted and then repainted. The mechanics have also been reviewed (brakes, clutch, electricity…). 

Finally the jeep received the markings of the 29th US division as well as its on-board kit (shovel, axe, etc.)   which was present in 1944.
