Re: May have found a cheap Willys...
I'm sure I'll start a debate here, but isn't a Ford GPW still considered a Jeep? They look almost exactly alike from the outside, they use all of the same parts, and Ford produced them for Willys during WW2. I also learned that during wartime when the mechanical work was done that Willys parts may have been put into a Ford and vice versa. So maybe you've got a Willys engine on a Ford frame and body? Since it will need a lot of repair work you can end up making it into a Willys and very few people would know the difference. If I had the money and time, I would be buying that thing.
