1962 willys

i recently ran across a 62 willys jeep. its kinda rough but is running and drivable. missing passenger fender, top/doors, and the seats are shot. i was wandering if 700 bucks sounds like a good deal. are there any things to look out for, i don't know much about these early jeeps.

There are a lot of variables, but $700 for a running old Willys is pretty good.

Is it a CJ3B or a CJ5? I believe both had the Hurricane F-Head 134cid engine, both had the t90 transmission and the t18 transfer case. They also shared the Dana 25 & 27 front axles as well as the Dana 44 rear. The CJ5 may have had the dauntless V6 at this time as an option, but I am not sure.

The CJ3B has that flatfender Willys look and the CJ5 has the rounded styling and a bigger body.

Anyhow - $700 ain't bad. If it's working and not too rusty, I'd buy it.

it might even be an m38a1 but i haven't examined it close enough. it has the round fenders and what is left of a light on the left front fender. the front bumper has some sort of attatchment for tow hooks.

That definitely sounds like an M38A1. Is there a compartment in the dash to the left of a steering wheel? Does it have 2 car batteries? Does the instrument cluster have two bulbous, metal protrusions in the middle of it? If yes to all, you're pretty assured it's an M38A1.

It's worth more than 700 in parts, so you could always buy it, and see what yuo're getting into afterwards. If you think later you don't want to tackle it, part it out and recoup your money plus some gravy money too!
