Cool tow vehicle for my trailer-sailer!

Just bought this today. How perfect to tow around my 20' Balboa with, huh? I just love the CG paint scheme. Needs some work, but who doesn't love a project, right? It's a '48 Willys Overland panel delivery. I needed something else to work on after I got the boat to where I want her...lol.

Hopefully it has the flathead six in it. That engine will run forever!

Thanks guys! I haven't even gotten to drive it yet, but already love it. What is this a/c you speak of? Lol. I work outside here in FL, am used to the heat. It is only a four cylinder, but should be enough to pull my boat a couple miles to the ramp. I will post some more pics when I get it home and cleaned up. And no, I will not be touching the paint scheme. I love it!
