I can dream. It may be a long time before the track looks that good.

That's terrific! Have you found a 12 volt starter for it?

Everything I've read says a 6 volt starter works just fine on 12 volts, just like early CJ's.

Yeah, that's true except, I think, except that it will overheat faster than a 12 volt if the engine doesn't start.

6.5:1 compression 4 cylinder probably isn't much load.

A friend is working on making the first switch.

I got it loaded on the trailer under its own power. That was so much easier than using the come-a-long. It got unloaded onto its new track the next night but unfortunately, no video or pictures of that event.
