Project B**** aka The Short Bus

I hope that title is ok. My fiance named it before we got it home.
well i picked up this 1973 AMC Jeep Wagoneer for $80 and it runs (ok) we had a few issues getting it home. hell even getting it on the trailor
issuse 1. engine fire. issuse 2. 3 flat tires and i brought 2 spares. and 3. A CRAPPY TRAILOR.
ok about a week before i picked it up some teenagers attacked it with an axe(yes an AXE) and screwed the front fenders so here is a pondering moment
1. cut, bend, and mend the old stock fenders. or
2. get some PnP replacments.



on day 4 I started pullings little things off like the grill and fire ridden carb.


and bumper

so last night i got a wild hair and went out and pulled the under dash A/C unit out(it still works) and all the A/C stuff (keeping the york comp might make a nice onboard air) them i pull the heater box and blower and wow with all that crap out of the way there is alot of room in the engine compartment. and i thought i might run the intake ducking through the hole from the heater in the firewall. and also pulled all the smog crap off.
I will post more as i work.

I think I might have a good parts rig for you. Same year. Hasn't been attacked with an axe. No tailgate. PM me if you might be interested.

This makes my blood boil. I happen to a big fan of this grille/fender style, and I even like the color. Seeing people randomly destroy other people's property makes me mad. I hope those punks receive the same treatment sometime on something valuable they own.

Through a strange series of events... I have a pink slip that can go with it... it just says the wrong year (78).

It's not going anywhere. I don't have it for sale anywhere. I was holding on to it until my truck was all done (and probably for awhile after in case I need a window or something small off it) then I figured with it not being driveable I'd probably just have to get scrap value.

When you posted, the two together just looked too perfect. I'll sell it to you because it looks like you need it more than I do. Anyone else would have to convince me of a good reason to part with it.

Let me know,

Todd
