After he passed it sat at my dads place for a long time always with the intention of getting it running again. Well next thing you know 25years passed and the rust takes over. This would be a fun project Jeep, or a good Parts jeep or if you just want to use the tub to have a titled buggy. Clean Oregon title in hand. I can deliver within 50 miles of Lincoln.”
