Willys jeep??

I found a guy selling what he says is a willys jeeps, but it just has a wooden cab on it. I think it's a 66 or 67, it has the buick engine in it. I'm wondering what kind of axles, trans, and transfer case it would have??? I'm rebuilding a CJ-7 so I'm wondering if any of this stuff would be anygood to me. The guys says it's running good and he only wants 150 bucks for it.....so what do you all think? any help would be great.

Thanks

I would assume the gear in the '7 is going to be better than the 50's equipment.

definately

if it has the buick v6, it is a late 60's early 70's.
i wanna say they used it only from 68 to 71, but im not sure about that.

I think they used the V6 from about '65-'71. In '70 buick bought the tooling back from kaiser.

First of all, the Buick was used from '66 to '71, not in the '50s. Second of all, are you speaking from personal experience, or just assuming? The combination of extremely short wheel base, extremely light weight, extremely high HP to weight ratio, great low gearing, flexible frame, available aftermarket overdrive, Dana 44 rear stock, utilitarian function and good looks make it one of the best JEEPs ever. Don't assume. Especially if that CJ7 happens to be an '80+, the early CJ5 has it beat hands down.

ouch Clint(LOL) tell us how you realy feel .
In reality, the 7 would probably be a bit more comfortable and stable, but as for reliability, I perfer my 71(and it's got that cool cj5 look). The Buick is THE best engine offered in a CJ and would run well in the seven, however will have to be adapted.
The downside is there isn't much that will directly switch over to the seven, so while a great buy as a builder, it probably isn't going to be much as a parts rig.

Whoops. After reading that again, it definitely came out a little more abrasive than I intended. Sorry fellas. It was a beer induced post, but still no excuse.

What jeepdaddy said on the parts; not a whole lot to use on a 7.
