a buddy of mine moved onto a fullsize chevy and no longer wanted this so i got it for the low price of Free, Really not sure what my plans are so far just want to get it running again

Current specs are 55 Willys Full cage tied into the frame stainless steel floor setup for a 350/Sm465/NP205 has a narrowed 5 bolt Dana 60 rear and a narrowed 44 front both locked 4" Lift currently on 36" iroks but he took them back

Sorry for the crappy pics there off my cell i lost my digital cam and please excuse the messy shop

When it got dropped off

Best part of this build so far has been dropping the covers and realizing the diffs both have detroits in them, i was expecting them to be welded

Just got an email from the guy who originally built the willys back in the day holy crap this thing used to look wicked i did find the orange under a few other coats of paint

this is the email i got "Don't know how to post a picture, but here is what it use to look like when I built the CJ that was given to you. Had a L88 BBC in it. It was used for sand raceing, hill climbs. Ran it quartermile also at times. If you want could you post, people may be interested. Thanks Bill"

this is what she used to look like in her prime kinda brings a tear to my eye seeing what has happened to it
