"Lucky" My '53 Willys Pickup

Here she is, in all her glory:



I have a spare frame that is keeping its stock axles (for now) and getting front discs. It's also getting a 4.3L V-6 from a '92 Blazer as well as its 4L80 trans. I'm using the Blazer wiring harness to keep things simple and easier (read: cheap). The new frame will be outfitted with YJ springs to add flex and stability. Maybe a minimal body lift for now, might do more with springs when I replace axles again.

Plans include a Ford 9" rearend and a Dana 30 or 44 frontend to match. It all depends on what I find first!

Joe
