Tony, I really lucked out on this. The po had actually bought jeep parts off me about 5 years ago from an ebay auction, kept in touch for awhile when he had me hold the parts so he could come pick them up from my house...so in a round about way, we knew about each other's obsessions with jeeps.

BTW, the PO took the "tiny pic".

I was thinking of making a poll on what I should do with the panel...
Maybe you guys can help with the decision; here's a few of my thoughts on possibilities:

1) Restore to factory/near factory specs... origional condition

2) Restore with modern conveniences/upgrades

3) Leave it alone, drive it as a "barn Find"

4) Turn it into a combo of any of the above w/ some slick logo on the side...

Any other options, thoughts?

Restore it, too rare to butcher. What ya need to upgrade is your camera.

Actually the camera is new, it is just set for max resolution.

There's no way I'd cut into this jeep; but it is possible to do a resto-mod and still be able to un-do the "damage".

If you can't find one build one

That's one way to do it.

So in true jeeper fashion lift it cut the wheel wells out swap in a Chevy/Ford/Dodge V8 bolt on some bead locks with mud luggers. Then bash it into trees, bounce it off rocks, sink it in mud, and drowned it in water

Tis the "Jeeper" way, More fun to party n destroy then labor to restore Especially if its rust free n straight unit it wouldn't be Jeeping if you didn't destroy a nice one

EDIT:
Power it with 5.9 Cummins I hear that involves more hacking n chopping

My brother has a 1959, it is on a 77 FSJ frame and running gear.
When he bought it the frame had been cut off and the cab was made into a trailer,
So there was no way to make it stock so did a restomod, It is all JEEP.
It is a blast to drive.
Here is a picture.

I'd leave it pretty much as it is. Do general maintenance. And take whatever measures to slow any further deterioration. It's old enough to be very rare, and on top of it all I don't fancy they made all that many of them. I've only seen one or two over the past 45 years, and these are things I notice.

IMHO? I would leave the outside alone. Get a nice paint job and go from there? Beale.
