Just added fender flares. The rear are made out of single axle trailer fenders and the fronts are a tandem axle trailer fender cut in half. They work really well. I was trying to keep the fenders similar to the trailer and CJ5 style.

Is there a back story to how this one has survived through all the years?
Also, please tell us you're not going to re-paint it if that's the original paint, which it appears to be!
That patina took nearly 50 years to obtain, would be a shame to re-spray it. I would do some some research on restoring old paint, then cautiously go about it. Diluted CLR would do wonders!
Thanks for the compliments. She was sitting in the backyard of a house next door to a house we were working on and I just struck up a conversation with the owner. Really nice old car guy...also has a '41 Chevy dually and a '41 Ford pickup that you would drool over if you like the patina look...along with an almost perfect body...and it still runs...heh.
On the CJ, I only know the history for about the last 25 years I think is what he said. I'll know more when I pick it up and get the title. It's been sitting since '95 and there is water in the carburetor but not seeing any water in the oil. It appears that it dripped in over the oil bath. I'll have a friend do a "CarFax" on it and see what else turns up.
I do NOT plan on repainting it. I too love the old look, however, there is some rust under the doors, corners, etc. Windshield frame is good. I am thinking I may pull the body off though and go through the frame and drive train and then "love like she is". I guess we'll just see what evolves as we go along.
