David Freiburger and Steve Dulcich thrive on rescuing long-abandoned vehicles from rotting neglect, and this time they revive a 1967 Jeep J100 panel truck from the backyard of Jp Magazine Editor Rick Péwé. The truck is an Army-issue Audio-Visual Panel Delivery that was used for field media production and, from what we can tell, only about 2,500 of these trucks were made. It’s loaded with an AMC 232ci straight-six, three-on-the-tree manual trans, and Dana 20 transfer case for four-wheel drive. It’s sweet, but it has not been on the road since 1995, and Freiburger’s on a deadline to drive it up to the Southern California Timing Association’s land speed races at El Mirage Dry Lake so he can work patrol duty…and then do some four-wheeling with the old beast that’s now known as the Flannel Wagon.
