What to do with a 1960 willys pickup
I have had this pickup since 99. I is a PITA, it would foul plugs everytime I drove it. Only would do 35 tops. It has been sitting now for 8 years since I last messed with it. It has the original 226 flat head, t-90, dana/spicer 18, dana 53 rear and 20 something up front. It has Rancho springs up front and sit on about a 33" buckshot. I would love to build it but everything is so weak. Would a 258 with some up graded axles be a wheelin machine? I dont want to do the ole set the body on a blazer frame type of thing. i want it to stay as pure as a jeep as possible. Is there any use for the ild flathead 6s out there? I took it out wheel once with my brother and his cj-5. It took hours to get to where we were going but the truck performed great for wat it is.
Would you keep it stock? Mod it? sell it and build the cj-5? Any thoughts would be great
