Seller does not want to part this out.

“Started frame up restoration, lost interest. The tub is in awesome condition, for being almost 70 years old. It is not rusted out. The small parts are done and painted. The floating Dana 44 rear diff is complete with new 5:38 gears. The Dana 25 front diff needs to be assembled. Comes with tailgate, windshield, and hood, also comes with the fully functional original trans and t-case, and a spare trans and t-case. There is also a complete Best Top soft top with soft doors and the frame work. Has a clean Colorado title. Need to sell complete, I will not part it out or sell parts individually. This would be a good starter project for someone looking to go back to factory military or custom flat fender. Parts are easily sourced on the net”

    I’m curious about the smaller ‘toy’ jeep on the rear of the trailer. It appears to be accurately scaled down, with a little scaled down trailer (U-Haul) on top of it. The nicely proportioned wheels have a good look. Yet, it seems to be fairly large for a mere peddle car, maybe lawn mower engine powered? I also noticed it’s fenders might be plywood coming unglued? But, I don’t think it’s all just made of wood either, the tub shows wood grain, but the hood dent in pic #5 looks like it’s metal. Perhaps it’s another Popular Mechanics type home build, or a carnival ride? I wonder if it has a windshield with it.
    …If I had that when I was 10 yrs old, it would have taken cookies AND ice cream to get me out of it! lol

    I missed spotting that jeep. I agree that it looks nicely proportioned. The trailer sitting atop looks like it was the right size to be towed behind it.

    I’ve emailed the seller. Maybe we’ll learn something.
