Welcome to my website. My name is Bill Hollinger and I live in California City, California. I will be working on the1962 American Motors M422A1 Mighty Mite, serial number 3047. The '44 MB is not my first go at restoring a jeep. I restored a 1946 Williys CJ2A that later became a 1942 Ford Willys Cross with the help of an illegal alien and a 12 pack of beer (see pictures to left). After an extensive stay in the hospital and over a year later she was back on the road, but with all the appeal absent, she had to go. And so she did, to a couple in Oceanside, Ca. I hope they're as happy with her as I was.
Please sign my guest book and let me know what you think.
It should be noted that on the "Picture Story" link there is the photo of the body of the illegal alien that eight and a half months earlier had totaled my jeep. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED! It is not that I'm sadistic but as they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words".
With my jeep finished, you're never finished with a WWII jeep, and the Gemco T-11/4 ton trailer. finished. I can now get started on the Mite. I think the Mite will be pretty easy since it's all there and in great shape.
Both the WWII jeep and the Gemco have been sold. The jeep went to a gentleman in Florida. He got one hell of a jeep. The trailer went to a gentleman on the Sacramento Delta, he too got a very nice trailer!
