Should I buy It?

I heard about a WWII willys MB that has been modifyed with stock 1978 CJ 7 running gear.
I have not seen it & I know nothing about jeeps...yet.
I have heard that the old jeeps had narrower axles then the later ones.
Does anyone know if the CJ 7 axles would stick out to far...in other words look funny ...kinda like a cartoon?
I am looking to drive it around town as well as out in the fire roads of the local national forest & maybe try a little rock crawling.
I figure these CJ 7 axles would be stronger than the WWII axles,& maybe more driveable on the street.
I value your opinion on this...again,I am just learning & looking for a good first project.
Thankyou for your time...Tom
