Good luck w/ your project.

I've seen those factory CJ bench seats fetch a small fortune.

Your "before" pics have been cross-posted on the abandoned Jeep thread.

Ironically enough, it was the 3,000th post in said forum.

Why do you think someone scrapped it? Not trying to be an *** just dont want you to go 'F^^%# JEEPS' because its a money pit.

Ill buy the A/C for $50 if you dont want it. You are going to need some conversion parts to get it to work with the 350.

I would make sure you get a title straight before you sink money into it and cant drive it. N/C is easy to get a title.

My stepgrandfather is chief of police, so title is no problem.

I can fix the hood, one fender, have the engine, wire myself, and i can paint myself.
I can make some parts such as the motor mounts.

So i need a fender, the adapter is $62.90 including shipping, brakes, gas tank, and a few other small misc. parts...

im not trying to be a D-dag, just state my opinion, i know over time i am going to end up putting alot of money into it. but thats why its called a project.

Cool!!!! actually, most of the damage was done AT the scrapyard. apparently the people who brought it in bought it from the original owners just for the engine. the guy at the yard said when it came in it looked like it had been very well kept up and was in very good condition. oh well...

Looks like the hard top is from a YJ, just fyi.
The good, unmolested dash, seats, windshield frame, and the tub looks ok. Axles, drive shafts, tranny and TC, and grill.

THE BAD, I hate those all plastic steering wheels, and a lot of work.

Some paint and duct tape and you'll be good to go
In a couple days I will put up some pics. of the motor mounts in my CJ 5. They would be fairly easy to make, they are getting upgraded to better ones this winter.

Thanks!!! how can you tell the hardtop??? at the S/Y the top had a corner ripped out but with some fiberglass would of have been repairible. Then while i was gone, my dad went to go get the jeep. he forgot to strap down the top. it fell off, now all its good for is temporary cover. but i know the doors are from a YJ.

Thats why i got it, the unmolested dash, seats, windshield frame, the tub is perfect except for a dime sized rust hole in drivers side floor, axles, drive shafts, tranny and TC, and grill.

Imma try to keep it as original as i can.

The vents to the rear of the side windows, and the gas struts, for the rear glass. CJ's use a larger diameter strut, and have springs inside.

You will also need a AMC to SBC conversion radiator.
