It is a complete jeep and did run and drive when we parked it just hasn’t been started in quite a few years. Military base jeep with the original flat head motor. It is not locked up and the gears shift as they should. Everything worked and was a fun jeep to drive. We have misplaced the title but it will be sold with a Bill of Sale.
