Hodor the Giant wagon

So I sold my wj to fund a new project. Well I fell smitten with the 1946-65 willys wagons once I saw one across from my office at work. So I did some research and found one on 2.5 ton rock wells and 49s. Though it was awesome. So I decided I could build one.

I haven't been able to find one I like so just got a parts list Down and started gathering Parts.

So I set aside a budget for everything and so far I've blown the budget on coilovers and this... I found the willys wagon... Well 2 of them. They were in great shape and the guy was hurting for money, I bought them both for less than he was asking for 1. The green is a 1953 with an fhead 4 cyl engine. It's about 85% restored, need a carburetor and brake seal in the master. The red is a 55 with the super hurricane flat head 6cy. It needs a water pump and timing adjusted. Both run and love driving the red one. It's interior is all on boxes. Plus lots of other goodies. The green one I'm going to finish restoring and the red one I'm going to turn into my giant. I've been sick so two friends went and picked them up for me.

Yea, any major areas? I have tons of parts, all the panels and headliner still need to be done but that's farther back on the list

Mainly dash and door panels plus the rear floor pan. Do you know anyone that makes a repair kit for the rear floor?

You can check the willys pages but what I've seen is people using Chevy truck bed floors and welding them in
