1960 Palamaba Willys

Well ended up getting a screaming deal on this Wagon and I've wanted one for quite some time so I picked it up. It's a 1960 with a factory hydraulic plow (most likely leaving) and 4wd. It has all the seats and the Super Hurricane engine to boot. Sure it has rust but this will be a restoration to bring it back to stock status, no cutting or boggers here.

Anyway here is a picture to start this soon to be long documentary...

Thanks!

As for the welding, I hear that. Most of the cab will need to be replaced as well as the fenders. But i will be picking it up on Thursday so I'll grab more pictures of it for you guys!

Alright I have pictures and a question to start. Can anyone direct me to a website that reveals what the VIN number off this Willys would stand for? Or were these just serial numbers?

This '60 is strange, it has a two-piece windshield...

I read the title and thought "Oh no, he's going to cut it up." But thankfully that's not the case! I look forward to this restoration.

Never, it's a joke on the place where it is from. Has a nickname that makes me smile every time.

But here are more pictures as promised!

First here is me with my Wagon, newly purchased and about to roll out.



Here is the interior, basic would be an understatement.



And finally the trailer along with Dad and me that we loaded the Wagon on (the Jeep had no brakes but it was able to pull itself onto the trailer with a lot of skinny pedal, engine needs to be rebuilt!)
