v8 bubba

Recommended Posts

A litle help please i am trying to to find any info on jeep cj8.s that were

trialed by the US army in the early 80s in particular any pics so i can see what mods from standard and fittings that may have been used.

I am restoring one and would like to restore it to the same spec.

well it seems to look just about standard the pic is not the best and i am wodering what would be the paint scheme have been the one in the pic is us airforce but wondering from 1979 to 83 were they just using olive drab or were they in to camo by then i have seen pics camo cuckvees and and just olive


there are only four of these in the country and i own three they only made 27000 in the entire prodution run


so if i tryed to build a replica would this be blasphamy and deeply wrong

or due to the almost imposability of real ex airforce or army one turning up in the uk would it be deemed a fair thing to do
