1967 jeep J-3000 gladiator with the 327 vigilante motor, 4 speed, 4x4, 3/4 ton, traded a shotgun for it. it does need a little work but it runs. not 100% sure on the build plan yet but i am happy with the trade.

I already picked up some parts today, electric fuel pump, block off plate (looks like a chevy one will work), new fuel filters, upper and lower radiator hoses, oil filter. The bellow inside the fuel pump broke and so its sending gas into the crankcase and oil into the fuel line.

Ya, summit racing lists 1 mechanical fuel pump block off plates for all the makes, they all have the same bolt pattern.

I looks like the truck does have some new sheet metal like the front fascia and roof is that about right?

Not sure what you mean by fascia?

It looks like the hood is newer, there's about 6 different colors of spray paint on this thing

Not sure how sold you are on keeping the Rambler motor. While they are excellent engines, parts are starting to get a bit thin and performance parts are very hard to find. You may want to keep your eye out for a Buick 350/400/20 combo out of a 65-71 Waggy/p'up. This is a virtual bolt in drivetrain. You can retain the stick and adapt it if that is what you want to keep for a transmission. This would allow you to use GM parts which are much easier to find.

Yah I'm seeing parts are hit and miss, I'm going to try and run the original engine until it gives me too much trouble. By the time it needs replaced hopefully I have my TBI chevy 350 finished and ill drop that in probably with a TH400/NP205
