1964 CJ-5 body for a 1974 CJ-5

I just bought a cherry 1964 Willys CJ-5 ... I bought it from the second owner who is a close friend ,,, Its got a 500 dollar 2.5in SUPERLIFT springs & shocks ,, All new brakes all around ,,,Both were just put on a year ago ,,, I it has 30 K on the Odometer ,,,,I bought it for the TUB to put it on my 1974 CJ-5 (mine is a rust bucket) ,,, Everthing Ive looked at is the same from 55 to 75 ,,, I was wondering if anyone esle has done this swap ,,,Or !!! should I swap all the running gear to the 64,,,Im planing on parting out what ever is left... I drive 60 miles aday with my 74 so the 4 cylinder is not an option ,, My 304 turns 3K at 65MPH as it is ,, the 4 banger be lucky to do 50MPH,,, Plus its got like 5 something gears in the rear ,, Im told.. any feed back would be welcome ,,, I bring it home saturday ,,,, She has been keep in a garage all of her 38 years...

If the 64 is in the great shape, why break it up? I'd find another donor tub. There were changes between the 64 and 74 model years. Brakeline sizes and proportioning valves are a few that really pop into my mind. But if you do break it up, I've got a 64 that needs restoration. You might have a few parts that I need. I have a couple of 70's era CJ-5's that might be a source for some parts you might need.

Well the bodys in such great shape ,, I figured id sell the running gear flat out to someone looking for a 64 or so ,,

Flat head 4 Cyl with a t-90 ,, twin stick transfer case ..runs like a charm,,, new brakes ,,, hose's,, belts,, & shocks & springs ,,,

I'd hate to see you break up a cherry Willys for parts[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]! The nice specimines just aren't around anymore, and the prices on them aren't getting any cheaper. If you CANT keep the Willys AND get another donor Jeep for your '74, then sell me the Willys and fund your project that way. I would be really interested if the price is right, knowing you have to make some money on it to be worth your trouble.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Let us know.
