Finally! My first Jeep!

Wanted an old Jeep to fix up and take to the woods. Found it. 1962 Willys CJ-5. Friends call it the Roach Coach. They say its a Heep not a Jeep and did I quit my job to start delivering mail. Well... Its rough now but its mine. Cherry popped.

Anyone can make a TJ look pretty, but that thing is definitely one of a kind. When I make a woods rig, I'm going to search high and low for something crazy like that!

Good luck with the build

Haha. Thanks man. Been lookin for a jeep for awhile. Guy walks into my friends garage askin if he could make him an exhaust pipe for a '62 Willys. Within 15seconds my friend had the guy convinced to sell it to me. Two days ago. Two days! Another one fell into my lap for $400. All parts though. The tranny & transfer case alone could score close to it. Came in handy already. Had to grab parts from it for little stuff. U know. Like stopping.

Want a cj7 but got my hands more than full with the cj-5. Thanx though. Only thing im in the market for are 31's and a body tub for the cj-5. Its fine for now but definitely needs replacing.
