I'm saddened, but I am departing with my Wagon. I want a new toy, and the wife says the CJ or Willys has to go. Since I use the CJ, and the Willys has sat for 2 years in the garage, I made my decision.
The nitty gritty:
She has been garaged the past 10 years. 8 by previous owner, and 2 by me. Little exposure to the elements.
Stock Willys Super Hurricane Inline Six (6-226)
Runs strong. Has started every time.
T90 Transmission (stock)
Spicer 18 Transfer (stock)
NO overdrive unit. A common question. It appears that at one time it had one, and has been removed. The Tranny hump has been cut, folded, then folded back. Kinda ugly...but a rug will cover it.
Mechanically, everything works.
Dual-A-Matic locking hubs.
VERY straight body. Hardly a door ding.
Interior is clean. Seats in good shape. I have installed Lap Belts for 3. One Driver, Two Passengers.
It has the original oak slats. They are in very good shape, but need to be sanded, then some polyurethane, and they will be beautiful.
She has been converted to 12 volts. All gauges work.
Brand new BFG All Terrains.
Another common question is rust. VERY little. Some surface on exterior. Had some on passenger floor (leaky heater I'm sure). There are a few very small holes that go completely through, but floor is still very solid. My intentions have never been a frame off restoration, so I treated the rust with POR15, and painted over it. I removed the stock heater, but still have it.
I also have the original 6v generator and stand.
Now some pics:
Cool Dash...never been cut

Passenger floor after POR15 and paint
Rear doors open
Rear seats are split, and they fold and tumble for added storage room
Drivers seat, etc.
Here she sat, for nearly 8 years. Amazingly, we charged the battery, fired her up, and I drover her home. Biased tires felt like they were square! Looked like she was smoking, but it was all the dust being blown off.
If you're looking for a fast car, this isn't for you.
If you're looking for a rock crawler, this isn't for you.
If you love old Jeeps, this IS for you.
I'm asking for $5,000
Thanks for looking
