Can't tell from the picture but how bad is the rust?

any more, bigger pics???? Does it run? I notice it has the broken fan option. $400 would be worth it to get the VIN number and transfer to a new frame and body, as that one looks well used..

Would he go lower than 4? If he would take 250 to 3 I would.

Love Willys! I used to drive my dad's around our yard but the seat was so far back I stood up and drove.

I would do it if he went lower.

willy's are awesome, i'd love to have one. just make sure its not too far gone, make sure the frame and or body isn't rotted out. but it is worth it for the vin and title though.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."
