“I have two jeep willys for sale. Both have the original running gear still intact. The first is a 1952 with a clean texas title. It runs but the battery and cables aren’t the greatest so it’s easier to roll start it right now. The tires are good for pasture use but not for the road. It’s a pretty good jeep for a restoration if you’re looking for one to love on. The brakes need an overhaul and the fuel tank needs attention, we use an external tank on it. The second one does not have a title and I’m not sure what year it is. It’s whole but needs way more love or would be good for parts and such to help with fixing up the first. It ran years ago when we parked it but it would need alot of work. I’d like to sell both together but I’m open to offers”
