I just bought a '58 Willys last night, a young boys dream finally came true! It is totally stock with 17,000 orig. miles. I got it for $2400, which i think is a great deal. I am looking for advice on what i should do to start the restoration of this fine piece of machinery. The body has minimal rust and has been garaged for the last fifteen years with little usage, he said (the seller) that he put MAYBE 500 miles on it in ten years. The gas has been in the tank for roughly 5 years. It has a rebuilt carb, and radiator, however the steering seems to have "dead spots". It starts up and runs but it is a rough sounding engine. I'm new to this so I'm hoping to get some advice.
Thanks All... Ski Dude
