Post My 47 Willys Project
Can't believe I haven't posted this on here...

Bought it back in April for almost nothing. It had been sitting since 1981 on the property next door to me...

Image

My neighbor helped me dig it out and drag it up to my garage...

Image
Image

Then I stripped it down to the frame...

Image

And got the engine unlocked then pulled it...

Image

Then coated the frame with por15...

Image

And installed all new suspension parts...

Image

And here is how it sits today.

Image

Ive rebuilt the axles, brakes, and steering. Just waiting on new front wheel bearings to come in and I will have the wheels back on it to roll it to my neighbors to cut to old bumpers off. Next step is replace valve guides and valves and put the engine back together.

I'm hoping to have it running by summer, but the biggest cost will be a new body...
