Ken,

I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how pleased I am with my restored 1946 Willy’s. I have always wanted an old jeep similar to the one I had while I was stationed in Europe in 1961. During that time I was driving a M151 jeep and had been tasked to be the Commander’s driver. My duty was to be ready to go anywhere the commander wanted at a drop of a hat. I was also required to have my jeep standing tall at all times. The jeep was my favorite vehicle of all the military equipment.

I was fortunate to find an old 1946 Willy’s, although it was in very bad condition; I knew you could build it for me. The color choice I made for the jeep was decided because in 1961 I was assigned to A-Co, 24th Quarter masters Battalion. Our commander wanted our equipment to look better than any other units in Europe. So what we did was mix the old Olive Drab flat paint with some high gloss black. This made the paint quite a bit darker green but made the paint shine like a new penny.

I still have an old picture of my jeep from 1961 and decided to even use the old military registration number on my new one. The group of people you have working for you are one of a kind. You can always tell when people are doing something they have a passion for. It shows in the quality and detail of the work they and yourself do. They are true professionals and always courteous.

Thank you

Ken,

First I want to start off by saying how pleased I am with my Jimmy/Blazer and what a pleasure it has been working with you and your team on my restoration. If you were to ask me if there was anything I would change or anything I would do differently the answer would be NO. In my opinion it is perfect and the work you and your guys turn out is first class, top of the line, A number 1. As you know this project/restoration started out as a 1971 GMC JIMMY 4WD, factory Hugger Orange with a white top. And as you and I discussed I did not like the front clip/grill of the GMC so we decided to change the front clip to a 1971/72 Chevrolet Blazer, and again I am so glad we did.

I went back and did my research on the vehicle and found it was originally purchased in August of 1971 by Mr. Gary Anderson, owner #1, of Aiken Coca Cola Bottling Co. from Graniteville South Carolina. Mr. Anderson kept the vehicle for 16 years and then sold it in March 1987 to Mr. Tom Mitchel, then of Walterboro South Carolina. I have the title application from this sale as well as an odometer statement which shows at the time it then had 46,153 miles on the vehicle, all of which was still in the glove box. Mr. Tom Mitchel and his family some years later moved to Jasper Alabama, where I spotted the vehicle in a carport, and started my attempt to purchase it from him. It took me approximately 6 months of coaching, bargaining, jawing, etc to convince Tom to sell me the vehicle. So finally in April of 2009 I bought the 1971 GMC Jimmy from Tom Mitchel and started looking, shopping, buying, any and all parts we would need in the restoration process. At the time I purchased the Jimmy from Tom it had 63,098 miles on it and was in very good condition considering the age and type of vehicle.

It is a numbers matching vehicle with the original 350 four bolt main engine in it. And then the rest is part of our restoration process of which has been very very exciting, painful, fun, good, and many others.

Thank You

Ken,

When I picked my Jeep up and took it home, all the family could say was WOW!!!!   Anyone I show it to says WOW!!!!  This 1980 Jeep was a graduation gift from my parents in 1983. It went through many mud holes in Camp Shelby.  It carried me many miles to Jones Jr. College and went through many mud bogs along the way. I have enjoyed many trips to the Coast and Gulf Shores in it.  I was cruising in my Jeep when I met my wife 22 years ago. When my boy’s Shelby and Joe were small children the Jeep took us to several swimming holes.  Going through every mud hole along the way.  At one point I let some friends talk me into taking the Jeep an a rock climb in Hot Springs.  Over the years I did not realize how bad of shape my Jeep had gotten in. You and your guys really pulled it off.  Can’t believe my Jeep turned out this good.  I honestly believe the Jeep looks better than it did when I got it  27 years ago. I will recommend your business to anyone I meet that is looking for good quality work.  

Thanks for a great job,

David Mozingo
