1947 Jeep Willys
That won’t last long
And it runs! I hope somebody here snaps this one up.
Hey IRQVET ..... Here's a thought :This may the project that your hunting for ? Plus, It's just a Hop , Skip , & a Jump away from You.
I'm still waiting to see if I have to relocate (unwillingly) for work with the pending lay offs. I just don't want to drag a project car across state lines if I can avoid it. Trust me, I'm having that internal battle in head especially when I come across ads like this. Plus I kind of have a pecking order in terms of what I'm looking for:
1. CJ3b or M606
2. MB/ GPW
4. CJ2a/ CJ3a
I haven't totally made up my mind on what I want yet. It'l depend on what happens with work, and whats available when I decide to pull the trigger. I guess you could say I'm "passively" hunting for a new project.
But of course, with my luck, I'm finding all the good deals right when I'm not ready to pull the trigger. By the time I'm ready, only thing available will all be absolute junk at sky high prices . . .
Murphy's Law ? BTW ..... Who the hell was this friggn' Murphy guy anyway ?
Just go buy it. It's currently in usable condition and not a project in pieces.... so don't make it one!
In one weekend you could have that jeep lookin pretty snazzy.... Pressure wash, quick once over with a DA sander, 1 gallon of high build primer from tractor supply, 1 gallon of tractor supply paint. Just pick your favorite implement color and go. Seats off Craigslist and windshield glass cut at local shop.
Your buying it cheap enough that I bet you could put $500-750 in paint/ Craigslist parts....... use it for a while...... and sell it later on for what you have into it if not more.....
You make an excellent point, and I know your right. I just can't do it right now. Keep in mind that cheap Jeep could run me more if I have to get it transfered cross country for work (I'm a fed employee) Let alone, would I have a place to store it? Currently I have a 3 car garage and 3 acre spread. I might not get that lucky if I'm forced to move when I'm laid off in a few months.
According to lore, Mr. Murphy was a grunt.
If it were closer to me, it would already be in my garage. Anyone coming my way?
If you quit farting around..... you could have this Jeep on the road in 2 weeks and enjoy it for the next few months........ if shift happens at work, it can be sold easy when it looks pretty
Your location is listed as "Home." So if we knew where you were, maybe someone could help . . .
You're the devil. That's only like an hour and a half from me....
Wanna bring it to me? I got beer.
I hope a memeber gets it. At least that'll make me feel better about passing it up. By the way, in the era of political correctness, I prefer Diablo
Only 2,700 miles from Florida...road trip. (Not!)
She gone, dog house avoided. Only a little regretful .
Anyone we know?
