Re: Is there a market for willys parts?
That's the problem with Alaska, things rust out really fast! Although, that is probably the only problem with Alaska. The last two flatties I got I paid $200 for one and $250 for the other. I know where more can be obtained for about the same money, but I am keep those under my hat (eventually my will let me have more Jeeps, four is not enough). I have to have at least two more running before I can get another. Neither ran, come to think of it they still don't run, but here in the contiguous states, there are still some pretty good deals to be had. Both of mine have come out of farmer's fields. As far as used Willys parts, unless they are in really good shape, that can be used in a restoration, there isn't much market. There are so many aftermarket parts, you can practically build a whole Jeep by mail order. I would keep the TJ. It will give you worlds more reliability, especially if you need a daily driver. I have a cherry 88 Trooper I would swap you for the TJ [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
