Willys Jeep - What's it worth

There is a Willys Jeep near me that ive been eyeing. It would need an enormous amount of work, so i want to know at what price would it be worth purchasing this heep for?

What should i look for as far as identification? What year is it? I want a Willys to restore, but this thing may be too far gone. Any insight is appreciated.

With the poor photos and no info on the condition, I'll say $500 max. Just as a donor parts vehicle. Looks like a CJ2A, based on the windshield and grill. Definitely not military. Probably a 1946-48 model. Lots of parts are interchangeable with the old Willys, so they are not always what they may seem to be!

Send me an e-mail or PM if you need more advice!

Nothing wrong with that Jeep that 8-15k could not solve. I would not pay more than $500 for it though..

LOL..... 10-15k.....anything would look good after 10-15k thrown at it....
Doesn't mean it would be worth it.....if it was a M38, then maybe.

Why not try this instead:

I threw way more than $15K at my ex-wife and she's still ugly!
