Whats better than one rusty jeep? TWO!

Look what I pulled out of a field! The price was right (just get it off my property). Apparently it was one of his sons buddies friends and they just wanted it gone. She is in pretty rough shape but it's complete. Its actually in better shape than my first Wagoneer but thats a whole other story!

The story was they had it running 5yrs ago in -30 weather. As they drove it around the field it just stopped going into gear and this is where she stopped!

I got it home and couldn't resist messing with it a little. Poured some gas down the carb, swapped a battery in and she fired right up. Haha..
Didn't stay running for long and I didn't try. Came with cool hub caps and the neat AM/FM/CB radio. Sometime in its life it hauled a horse trailer and I think they just stuffed the horse feed in the back. Has a four barrel which might be useful to me currently running 2 barrel on my other jeep. The plan was to part it out to fund my efi but to tell you the truth I've started to fall in love with her. For now I put a nice tarp over it. Make some decisions come spring.
Happy Thanksgiving to the other Canadian folks.

77 or 78?


There are some cool parts on it if you part it out. Check what engine is in it.
Could be a four OH one?


If you do part it, I would love to buy the CB, and the rear tire carrier. I need those for my restowag.

Totally agree. It would be worth it to take a peek under it.

Morning. IT's a 78. I sooo wanted it to be the 401. That was the first thing checked. No such luck. 360, TH400, QT.
Rockdweller if I end up parting I will get in contact with you first.

Heck yeah!!!! Good on you RUSTY!!! I'd be interested in a few odds and ends parts if you part it out, too.

High quality junk here: intro thread and slow build thread

Did you know? Willys is just Willis spelled differently, but pronounced the same. Neither Willy nor his apostrophe are involved.
