UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8500.  Could this also be this flattie? It’s got a Muller Top

(11/17/2011) This is a nice build.  I think the thunderbird seat looks good in it. Here are similar flatties.

STORY BEHIND THIS LITTLE JEEPMy buddy is the second owner of the Willys, it’s been in his family since 1967. His dad bought her from a neighbors wife after the original owner passed away. Most of the modifications were done in the 60’s, she’s all original steel and been kept in that 60’s style. The springs and shocks have been upgraded and motor was rebuilt about 5 years ago, the 5k miles is original to the motor and the speedo reflects it. The paint looks very good, there is a few scratches where your feet drag getting in. The body seams were all welded properly, not just covered up and there has never been any body rust. The most off road she’s seen is Deer Hunting, so mainly Forrest type roads and never been wrecked. It’s a great little rig that would make a cool daily driver or weekender.”

    this looks very similar to the jeep on the very last page of this section. the top and windshield are similar and they are both from fresno. coincidence… or the same,” slightly altered ” jeep. makes me go hmmmm

    I forgot to tag this jeep as having the windshield mod … There was a guy in California who specialized in modifying the windshield, so it is conceivable he built some similar jeeps, too. Of course, now that I look for my detailed explanation mod, I can’t seem to find it. I will hunt down that explanation and add it to my modifications menu. In the meantime,

    Which post do you find similar to this one Frank? I would be interested to compare them.

    the picture from page 529 dated feb of 2008 is the one i’m referring to. very possible it’s not the same vehicle but all the similarities are what caught my eye.
