I went to go and look at a flatty today, suposed to be a '46 cj2a though i'm not sure what the acutal year of it is because it has no title (though one of my buddies might be able to find it for me for a couple cases of beer). It was dark but it appeared in pretty good shape over all. It's on 38" cut gumbos which don't have a ton of tread left, spring over, goofy steering that looks really un safe, gas can in the back for gas, no cage, stock motor, needs a rear drive shaft and front end (blown up), stock drive train. It also inculded 2 rolling chassis with i belive 1 good motor, 2 trans and t-cases, 2 sets of axles, and a bunch more stuff like a top with no frame, radiator, stock gas tank of un known condition.
I'd trade him my jeep minus the engine, trans, and t-case for the willys, extras chassis, and pile of parts and enough cash to pay off my parents what i owe them for my truck and trailer.
I figure the willys needs real axles and a roll cage before i really start to wheel it which would cost some money and i have a garage and all winter to get it ready, though it would be nice to have it ready for some wheeling spring brake. I'm planning on getting a welder and bender pretty soon and could probably finance them with the extra willys parts.
Give me your thoughts and ideas, this is not a done deal by any means and i can't decide what to do so i'm looking to you guys for your oppinons
Here's a bad pic of it, it was dark and that's mud not rust
