“Hello, for sale I have my 1948 Willy’s rat rod. I have put a lot of time and money into this, and just don’t have enough time to finish it up right now. Here’s the story on it.

I bought a 1948 Willy’s Army Jeep, took the tub off and hand it sandblasted. I then purchased original parts for it planning on restoring it to an original army Jeep. So I have special ordered original green military paint for it, original windshield, hood, dash, seat brackets, etc.

I then decided to take the project it a different direction, and purchased a nice 1989 Crown Victoria with 60,000 miles on it, and the Ford 5.0 fuel injected engine. It has coil-over suspension in the front and rear, along with disk brakes.
