I have built yjs before but i picked up a ''willys'' tonight and i need some help, the guy i baught it off did not know what year it was,well he did not know any thing about jeeps actually, what i can tell it has a newer gm 4cyl,berg wener 3sp with granny gear and a gm1/2 ton tcase.I think narrowed 44 rear end but the front axle is a jeep lock out hubs and disc brake conversion. 2in sus.lift 3in body lift with 33s. there are no willys badging on the passengerside dash but it has a glove box and the gas tank is in the rear like a newer cj or yj? the jeep has diamond plating arond the back and the body is in fair condition with some rust,but the frame is solid no rust at all,oh and the front has a winch mounting plate but no winch.i know the jeep is heavily modified but it looks to all have been done right. can any one help me with the year and i payed 450 for the jeep
ill try to get more info and better pics for tomorrow
From what i can tell it is a willys frame but the jeep has no title and it is goin to be along term project for my family, i looked at a willys saturday and i drove 100 miles to get it and when i got there the body was completly gone so i found this one and the body needs some work but the frame and drive train are perfect
Whatcha got there is one of dem super rare 1953 flatfender CJ-7s on a Willy's truck frame. They only sold 7 of those, so it's one of the most rare vehicles ever made.
OK, Just kidding. I got no idea. I agree that the frame looks way too big for an old flatfender body. The curve and the length from the door to the fender in photo #2 make me think CJ-7 - when they stretched the cowl length.
Do those fenders look like they were stock to you?
Here are some more pics of the jeep,the guy i bought it off told me it was a 3sp well its a 4sp ford transmission and i dontknow for sure what rear end it has here are some more pics of the jeep hope it helps?
Got the jeep runnin today but the only way it would keep runnin was if i poured gas directly down the carb, its like the fuel pump or the gas tank are blocked, but i also found out that the frame is willys but the front of the willys frame was cut off and a cj front frame was welded in place. The whole motor was locked so i had to pour pb blaster in the cylinders and let it sit untill it finally broke loose,not bad for sitting for 7 years and never ran.
