“I got this classic old flat-fender Jeep 16 months ago as a non-running project.
I’ve done a ton of work to it and now it runs.
It is still a project, but for someone else to finish.
The bottom line is I have a clear title and it runs down the road pretty good.
The stock 3 speed tranny shifts fine and the transfer case works good 2wd, 4wd hi, and 4wd lo.
The stock 4 cyl engine has 110-125 psi compression on all cylinders and runs great.
The tub has its fair share of rust holes.
The fenders, hood, and tailgate are in pretty good shape.

Work that I’ve done:
Rebuilt the steering gear box
Rebuilt the steering bell crank
Replaced the master brake cylinder
Replaced all 4 brake wheel cylinders
Replaced old brake fluid with Dot 5 brake fluid
Replaced all but one brake flex hoses
Rebuilt the carburetor
Installed new fuel pump and added a fuel filter
Installed new U-joints on front drive shaft
Greased every grease zirk
Changed oil in front and rear differentials
Flushed tranny and transfer case and put in new fluid
Flushed engine and put in new oil and filter
Installed new coolant pump and fresh antifreeze
Installed new ignition coil, spark plugs, and wires
Replaced the distributor with better working used one
Installed 3 new shift knobs and shift hole rubbers
Installed 12 volt battery and converted ignition to 12 volts with delco alternator
Installed new key-start ignition switch
Installed new Willys data plate on front dash
Installed used manual locking front hubs
Pulled and checked the gas tank, it is aftermarket and in great shape
Installed new gas line from tank to fuel pump
Installed new engine mounts, tranny mount, and t-case mount
Installed new choke cable
I know I’ve done more, but that covers most of it

Work that still needs completed:
Seats need to be installed, the seat in the pic is not bolted in, it is set in place to allow test drives.
You can keep it if you want
Rust holes need welded up
Wiring to the lights need to be done and the lights need to be replaced if you keep it 12 volts.
If you want to go back to 6 volts, I had the original generator tested and it works, you can have it if you want.
Has no horn
Probably want to paint it your favorite jeep color
Speedometer does not work. I replaced the cable, but that did not fix it
I believe the front windshield is plexi-glass
Like most old jeeps, it has some oil leaks, so might need some new seals”
