Jacob "Jake" Bullock:

Jacob Bullock CollageOur Young Preservationist of the year is Jacob Bullock.  Jake had for many years wanted to restore and own a WW2 Jeep, he knew that some 40 years ago his father had restored one in collaboration with his own father, and he wanted to experience the same process.

An abandoned 1944 Ford GPW project was sourced in Scotland and Jake set about its restoration.  It's a fine piece of work where Jake has thoroughly researched every detail of its restoration down to the individual nuts bolts and fasteners that hold it together. 

The project began while Jake was 15.  It is now complete and on the road and he is able to drive it.  No doubt the first of many restorations.



The National Transport Trust makes loans to groups, associations and individuals at advantageous rates for the restoration of artefacts - whether mobile or part of the infrastructure.  Applications must be supported by a simple business plan which demonstrates the financial viability of the project. A sample business plan is available on request from the Treasurer.


The Trust does occasionaly make Awards for schemes which further the preservation movement. Again if you wish further information please contact the Treasurer.
