Its great to see someone with a 48 out there. I don't own one but I spent many years with an old man in the 80's tending to his 48 & 50 Jeepsters. That fat old f*ck (he was 70 back then) would lay down on the concrete and wiggle underneath with me to point & plan what our next task was. When we were working on those old Willys's, he was as young as me (I was in my 20's,) never a gripe or b*tch. He was actually kind to people when we were turning those wrenches. I really connected with him onaconna (as Baretta would say) those Jeepsters. They gave us something in common, a point of mutual respect. He was convinced there was something wrong with the overdrives, so we completely disassembled each of them. I couldn't find anything wrong and they reassembled like a dream with only a few replacement seals and such. He loved pulling out that knob (to engage the unit.) He would always look over at me whenever he did it.

My grandfather was a Willys dealer and so my mother had one of these for her first car... and she loved it! She talked about that car with a smile on her face up until the day she died.
