Anyone recognize the WJ I just bought?

I just bought this WJ as a cheap runabout. It's fairly unique looking so was wondering if it used to belong to anyone on here!

I'm pretty close to you but don't know this WJ. It is "fairly unique" looking but in a good way. Hope you two get along good together!

Hope so too. Seems it's got some electrical gremlins. Blinkers didn't work all afternoon then came back on. Wet electrics perhaps...

The flasher unit needs to be pulled & the contacts freshened up. There's a good write up on it.
