This build is inspired by a humorous, short story by Bill Mauldin from the July 27, 1953 Saturday Evening Post called The Affair of the Wayward Jeep. The General's Jeep gets a flathead V-8. Started with an AMT WWII Jeep kit.

That's looking good Dan. Love the rusty engine.

Now you need to rust out the body a little.

According to the story, the engine was rusty but the Jeep was new. The general requires his Jeep to be kept clean.
