I have a chance to purchase a running Willys Jeep for $900.00. It needs brakes, seats, windshield, wheels, tires, gas tank, paint and the transmission won't stay in second. And that's without lifting the hood.
It's an old flat fendered jeep from the fifties. Does this sound like a smart purchase. I'm afraid it'll be a huge money pit. How available are the parts for these old jeeps?

Go for it! All the parts are out there. There are a multitude of suppliers. They're small, easy to work on and depending on how you restore it, will always bring a good return. Plus the fun of having something different! See if you can get it for $500 cash?

there are really not money pit, but only if you keep it orignal, will it be exspenive. can the flat four, find a 226. swap the steering for saginaw. little tip. postal jeep are identical except 2wd. you get the seat, tank, rear end brakes from postal
Good deal? Yes as long as it's not a rust bucket. I've seen beat up but running flatfenders for 3-5k easy.
Money pit? That depends what u want to do with it...most likely it will be, as well as lots of time spent if u can do things yourself. If not...then lots of money! Buy it, everbody needs a project.
