Re: 76 408
I noticed in you list of current rigs you have a '48 Willy's CJ 2A. Decades ago I traded a 30/30 rifle for a solid '49 CJ 3A with very little rust that was sitting covered in a barn. The windshield glass was gone, seats were rotted and engine was locked up but it was all there. I soaked the block in Marvel Mystery oil for a week and was able to free it up then after replacing a few parts and wires it came to life. I replaced the seats with a pair of Camaro buckets for $20.00 and later found another flat head 4 banger for $10.00 that only needed rings. After swapping out engines I then converted it to 12v system, finally replaced the glass, painted it and drove it for several more years until a guy wanted it much much (cha-ching) more than I did. It was a really fun ride, would go anywhere and could even hit 45 mph flat out on a good downhill run-lol.
