    0EC0916E-0788-4D9D-95D1-BD089421D411.jpeg cleaned and set the points + new condenser. After 10 years it fired right up and purred like a kitten. Drained old gas and filled with mid grade. Carburetor was clean inside so I didn’t do a thing to it. Feels good to hear it run. Last time I drove one was in the army 50+ years ago.

    Nice lookin’ Jeep, the PO did it up right, the present owner too. ;)
    It looks marvelously original.

    Time for a walk around, says I, and some interior pics.
