early cj5 1960 willys resurection build thread

here it is the 60 willys build thread. cant do much being 800 miles away but I can have my dad send more pics as he tinkers with it. keep in mind that this thing was only put in a garage starting the date/timstamp of the picture and It had the he!! driven out of it while sitting in the weather for 50 years. it has always been oiled inside and out using penetrol.

How well did that trans pan fit? I bought one from Walcks several years ago for my '63 and the fit was terrible.

I too like the patina on this Jeep. If it were mine I'd just Clear coat over it and leave it..

The trans pan fit great other than now i have to cut it for the OD shifter. Eveybody likes the patina, it does give it character. I do have to replace the rest of the floor at some point but I just drive it from time to time now,
