In memory of my 1942 GPW Ford Jeep that is sitting in my sister’s garage in Texas, I’m planning to build a tiny Jeep. I’ll probably never see the real Jeep again, so a little one will do. The original is in near stock condition with the OD green and numbers and all.

Since Jeeps have 4 tires that are all the same size, I want to use the 4 matching 20” turf savers I have. Most of the parts will come out of the junkyard behind the LT1000 or from my snowblower junkyard.

The LT1000 has an 18 HP Briggs and an MST206 transaxle. I will probably not touch the drive train until the body work is under control. I want to be able to move this thing under it’s own power as much as possible.

The tires:

Given the size of the tires and the fact that it won’t sit level with the 2 big tires on the front, I plan to stretch the frame slightly by moving the front axle out from under and to the front of the frame. This shouldn’t be too much of a chore, given that the axle mount is modular and can be easily removed.

The snowblower parts pile (with little tractor too)

I hope to come out of the build with something like this: (kinda sorta)

just a heads up... looking at the jeep for reference pic.  Those front fenders sure look like a lawn tractor rear fender split and worked up to be clean looking.

I’m dreaming… got plenty of time before I can work on this anyway. Yes, the original idea was based on a pic of one of ‘Lawn Gone’s’ rigs. Fenders based on mower fenders.
Right now I’m leaning toward fabricating all the sheet metal. I found an Instructable by a guy in the UK and he sent me his drawings. The thing is based on a riding mower but he made everything else.

This is one of his drawings. I want to move the front axle forward which will make the hood longer and more in proportion to the original Jeep.

And this is an ancient picture of my Jeep when it was in a garage in Illinois. It has since been moved to Texas. It was in a garage at my Dad’s house when he died and I was unable to get there to rescue it. My sister managed to get it moved and it has been with them for the last 28 years. I hope to retrieve it some day, but it is a LONG way from me now.

Man you and  @Stretch44875 of the Mowrons have some things in common.  He has a old jeep that is pretty cool.  He brings it to Haspin.

You can see it packed in this pic from a few years ago.

That is a pretty sweet old jeep, you don't think you could fly over to texas and road trip the thing back?
The mini version will look sweet though, I don't think i'm liking the look of the competition... (;

It's not a competition so to speak. We're build-off buddies! LOL

Yep, no competition, just FUN!

What I want to do with the old Jeep is road trip with one of my sons and bring it back here. We will see. That was my only vehicle for a while during my college days. I actually had a vinyl top with doors on it then, but put it back to the original rag top later. It wasn’t happy at over about 45 MPH so I towed it on any long trips.

Don’t think that way. Every build will be special. Yours, mine, everyone’s.
Think how many people you know who can’t build a sandwich, much less a machine. Cool

And, I’m hoping to spend little to no money on this.

Agreed @Nevadablue each build will bring something to the table. For me if nothing else it got me motivated to get this build started, which iv'e been planning on doing for a couple of years now.
