Now here’s a combo you don’t see often. TJ spotted this Jeepster body on a 1961 Ford Wagon drivetrain. Thanks to Race for correcting me.

“1948 Willys Jeepster. Been in storage for many years. Has the drivetrain from a 1961 Ford wagon. 292Y block, auto and rear end. It was running and the transmission shifts into and out of gear. That was what I was told a few years ago when I bought it. Body if fairy solid for the year. Will need a few patch panels. Convertible top bows are all there and intact. New Tires and Wheels Great restoration project.”

    Just a comment. In my lexicon “drivetrain” and “chassis” are not the same thing.
    Drivetrain is engine, transmission, rear end.
    Chassis is frame, suspension.

    Race, agreed. I breezed through the ad too quickly, and apparently jumped to the conclusion the whole chassis was used. My bad.
