After four decades covered in sand, a family's Jeep will finally be removed from a Cape Cod sand dune.

The Cape Cod Times reports that the Munsnuff family's Jeep Wagoneer became covered in sand back in the 70s.

The family's property in Truro has a garage that collapsed decades ago after being overcome by a sand dune.

At the time, the town would not allow them to move it out from under the sand dune due to concern over the dune system.

And so the Jeep just sat there in the sand...for 40 years!

Now the town says they have a new approach to the shifting sands and have actually requested that the family get the Jeep out.

The family will finally see their Jeep again with the removal scheduled for this Friday, February 24th, weather permitting.
