I have been told that it has a Buick V6 engine, a 350 Turbo transmission, a stock military transfer case and front end, and a Dana 44 rear.
All tires are bad and must be replaced, so it must be picked up by trailer (Can roll onto trailer with effort).”

“Today I put my Willys MB project up for sale. It is a project but has quite a few sought after pieces if you are into rock crawling. I’ve had this since 2018 with the hopes of creating an off-road vehicle I could rock crawl, but still be street-able. As you can see, that hasn’t happened yet and while I’d love to get to it someday in the near future, I wanted to give someone else a shot at fixing this thing up right. I’d like to sell this as a complete project but for the right price, anything can be bought.
