Anybody ever put a old Willys hood grill and fender on a CJ?
I (mostly) restored my scrambler a few years ago and I'm now working on a 4.0 head/FI swap. It never stops. I want to buy another for my son. He just turned 10 and will be getting his driver's license soon. So I only have 6 years to rebuild another CJ-8.
Anyway, I was wondering if anybody ever put a Willys hood, fenders and grill on a CJ? I really like the look of the formed hood and the nose of the grill. I'm talking about the grills that were on the Jeepsters and the truck pre-1950.
Has anybody seen that done? Anybody know a place where I can see measurements of the old Willys?
Hey, 1murderedjeep, that picture is of a little earlier model, but at some point, I think '49, Willys went with a "VJ" nose. It was v shaped and had 3 or 5 chrome bars going horizontal across the grill. I saw the pictures of the CJ-6 on face book. Looks like a lot of work, but the results are super cool. I think the front clip of a CJ-6 was identical to the CJ-5, CJ-7, and CJ-8. Is that right?
Did you ever complete the 'Willys grill on a CJ' project?
I designed an overlay for my TJ which has the 5 'V' chevrons from a 51 willys,
just waiting for paint and will be installing soon...
The willys grill measures 40 X 14 X 25, so a little bit of crunching to make it fit a YJ or TJ.....
Finally got my willys grill together and installed last night, so now introducing, the all new, 1997, Willys, Jeep, Sahara TJ, Jeepster!!..lol
Will probably do so additional changes as time and cash prevails.....
